A place for inexpensive date ideas :)

Monthly Archives: April 2013

I have been trying recently to use some of the pins I have pinned on pinterest instead of just pinning more. With that in mind we did a pinterest themed date. First, we went to my dessert board and found this recipe http://www.number-2-pencil.com/2012/03/06/chocolate-chip-cookie-in-cup/ for making a single cookie in a mug in the microwave. This was possibly very bad news for me, because I love cookies! The cookies turned out delicious and only took about five minutes to make. We then went to my family ideas board and found a link to free redbox codes. http://daysofadomesticdad.com/redbox-rental-codes/ We were both feeling pretty tired so a movie sounded good. We were so tired in fact that we ended up just watching one of our own movies. I loved this date because it had the potential of being any type of date. It was fun to pick activities to do together.

We are finally settled into our new home. It seems like it took forever, but it was definitely all worth it. Last night Tyler planned a really fun date. We made two activity jars that we will use on Saturdays. One jar was “indoor initiatives” and the other jar was “outdoor objectives.” Depending on the weather we will pick from the outdoor or indoor jar and have an activity to do together as a family. Some of our indoor jar activities include: making paper airplanes, visiting family, building forts, playing games, making a treat, coloring, bowling (water bottles as the pins and a soft ball as the bowling ball), etc. Some of our outdoor jar activities include: side walk chalk, blowing bubbles, going to the park, going on a hike, going on a walk, etc. To end the evening we played some of the games that we unpacked that we haven’t played in a long time. It was a fun night!
