A place for inexpensive date ideas :)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving next week we had a turkey themed date. The first activity we did was making a turkey. We had 15 minutes and could use any items in our house. These are the turkeys we came up with.

After that we read some facts about turkeys that we found here

and here

Then we listen to what turkeys really sound like here

Finally we played a turkey bowling game that we found online here

This site has more games, but this was by far our favorite. We switched turns each level and laughed really hard at the turkeys. Happy Thanksgiving!

We both love this time of year. We love the change in the seasons, we love all the holidays, and we love all the yummy food. This date was a way for us to kick back and talk about things that we we’re excited for.

We munched on some of our favorite cookies and talked about our favorite things. We talked about our favorite holidays, traditions, activities, and things that we are looking forward to before the end of the year. It is funny that something as simple as sitting and talking together is so much fun for us. With our two year old and other responsibilities that keep us running sometimes we don’t take time to chat like we should.

That’s what I’m told you are supposed to yell when you are golfing and you are trying to warn people. I’ve tried golfing…we’ll leave it at that. Tyler loves to golf. Golfing however doesn’t really fit into our dating with coinage theme. Thus our golf date didn’t involve a normal golf course.

We started by playing a round of Wii golf. Tyler for sure won. He’s a great golfer! I don’t have patience for things that don’t come to me naturally.

We then built our own miniature golf course holes. Here’s what they looked like

(Batman on the white box proved to be an extra hazard. When you hit the box Batman fell right in front of the hole.)

After we had the holes constructed we played mini golf. I must admit our holes were a little advanced, but they were fun!

We ended the evening with a good laugh. Here’s a link to the video that made us laugh 🙂

Happy golfing!!


It seems that with summer comes many parades…at least around our area. I went on a tour of a candy factory a few weeks ago and picked up some different kinds of taffy that we used as part of our date. What parade is complete without taffy? We did some taffy tasting to start. Some of our favorite flavors were red licorice, buttered popcorn, and macadamia nut. We would pass on the eggnog flavored taffy next time.

As we munched on taffy we looked up some facts about parades. Did you know that floats originate from medieval times? We didn’t! To round out our date we watched slides of this year’s Rose parade. Talk about some incredible floats!


There is nothing like a clean car. A car wash makes me like my car again. Both of our cars were in great need of a car wash inside and out. We took turns vacuuming and washing our cars. It helped to keep us cool on a hot summer day too.

We love spending time in our PJs! One of our Christmas traditions is to get new PJs to open on Christmas Eve. This is a pic of our most recent new PJs.

For this date we did everything in our comfy pajamas. We updated our little girl’s scrapbook together. We also threw some pillows on the floor and watched a movie. Simple and relaxing that’s the way we like our dates.


This post is actually for two different dates. The first date Tyler called a “Heather’s favorites date.” We started off the date with him giving me a massage. It was much needed after all the work we’ve been doing in our yard. To finish the night ate popcorn and watched a chick flick. I was having a hard time coming up with a good date idea last week so I stole Ty’s idea and we had a “Ty’s favorites date.” We played a video game of Ty’s choice, because it is not very often that I consent to play video games with Ty. In fact Tyler asked me the next day if I wanted to play a video game and I told him I was at my limit for the month. We made Ty’s favorite caramel popcorn that we’ve posted in a previous post. Finally we watched a movie of his choice. Totally simple dates, but we love to just spend time together it doesn’t really matter what we do 🙂
