My husband and I (and even before I became a Mrs. we did the same things on date night) love movies. We will go out to dinner and to the movies weekly. If not that then we get all dressed up and hit the bars for some karaoke (for me) and good imported beer for him. We just love spending time together so whatever we do we have fun with. For a time we lived in Seattle so we loved having a date day where we would hit the farmers market and then find ourselves the best sushi in town.

Usually it’s just dinner and a movie. We aren’t too adventurous in our date nights, I guess. A lot of times though we like to go to a movie in the afternoon to save a couple bucks so most weeks we just have a dinner date night.

It would be fun to do something different for a change and once in awhile we do but I don’t mind dinner and a movie. I’m interested to see if other people have fun ideas though.

We’re boring too. Our dates usually include some combo of the following: 

– dinner out or take out

– movie out or in

– mario

– shopping

 

We’re wild and crazy folks 🙂

Hubs and I have to fit our time in when we can. We love the common dinner and/or a movie. We try to get out during the weekends to hike with our Dog. On weekends, hubs is usually tired at night if he’s been helping his family out on the farm (which is 90% of weekends) so we try to fit something in during the day on those weekends. We don’t do dancing or bars, but sometimes we go to mini golf or bowling. Mostly we love to hang at home, enjoying out alone time before the baby comes, and watch tv or a movie and have dinner together.

We are going on a date night tonight, which will be dinner and a movie. We haven’t done either of those things in soooo long!

Then next weekend it’s our 2nd anniversary so we’ll be going to the keg I think? And then home for some champagne and a bubble bath in our new giant tub.

FI and I have been doing some newer things (to us) lately.  We went to a dinner theatre last week.  Actually thats the only new thing we’ve done lol.  We went to Cirque on Thursday, but we’ve been to a few before so that’s not new.  We try and think of other things, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a date “night”   Although we don’t have children so we don’t have to worry about babysitters – but some other ideas are picking up a new sport (we’re going to try snowshoeing and cross country skiing this year) trying new restaurants (Moroccan, lebanese, etc) that you may not have tried before.  That’s all I got, I just woke up my noggin isn’t in full effect yet!

@ChantelleyLace: lol we were never into the bar scene. FI doesn’t drink and I don’t like bars. One of the first things we bonded over when we met was the fact that we both hated the bar scene that all our friends were into!

We try to find things that are going on in our city. We almost always go out for dinner and/or drinks and then the rest varies by week. We’ve gone to new gallery openings, art walks, neighborhood festivals, mini-golf, a walk in a neighborhood we don’t normally spend as much time in. We go for bike rides and bring a picnic sometimes. Before I was in med school, we’d meet up for interesting public lectures at the local university, but I have less tolerance for that now that I’m in school. Basically, we look in local newspapers/online for things that are going on and try to really change our plans up.

We try to do a special big date once a month (we switch who plans every month). We usually try to surprise each other with the plans. We’ve gone to see our favorite comedian, had a picnic, and tried new restaurants that neither of us had been to. It’s always exciting to know that we have a fun date coming up!

We try and switch it up.  Sometimes it is going to the Improv to see a comedian or going to our fav. mex restaurant and then a salsa club afterwards.  But then again, sometimes it is just comfy and us.  Like last night we both had a long hard week so we picked up some of our favorite (kind of expensive) pizza, salads, bottle of wine, and an on-demand movie.  Us cuddled on the couch with pizza, wine, and a movie was jsut what we needed.   We also like to challenge ourselves with how much money we can save.  We always get an entertainmen savings book and before going out for a date night we look for coupons.  It encourages us to try new restaurants, shows, etc.  and we really do save a lot of money.

If we go to dinner, sometimes we’ll stop by the beach after. My hubby loves taking photos of the sunset.
