What is better than a good old fashioned date with the one you adore the most?

I love trying to come up with different date ideas for Spencer and I to go on and man, it just gets harder and harder to do! When you’re married and see each other every day, it’s hard to come up with a clever date to go on every week. We usually do date nights either Friday or Saturday and it mainly consists of the same dates: grocery shopping and grabbing dinner at Sam’s Club (which by the way is super cheap and actually pretty good!), watching a movie at home, going to the movies when there’s a good movie out, or going to grab dinner somewhere. (I know, we eat out A LOT)

We rarely go on a unique date anymore, especially since we now have our sweet babe in our lives. However, we have gotten pretty good at at-home dates and those usually consist of grabbing dinner or a treat, bringing it home, and watching a movie/show. Don’t get me wrong, I love these dates with Spence, but it’s nice to try and think of something else to do. So now, if we want to go out on a date with just us (because it’s important to get out just the two of you!), we get a babysitter and go somewhere for at least an hour so it’s just us two for a bit.
