Our wedding fund ate our date night. Going out to dinner instead of cooking sounds FABULOUS. Please tell me all about it! Do you order wine too? Do you stare at each other and not worry about the costs?? DRROOOOLLL.

In all honesty because we have no money it’s actually really nice when we do get out. I have 7 weeks left to feel like a normal person again and not a crazy bride to be who paints  thumbtacks to match her theme!

We don’t have a ‘date night’, mostly because we’re homebodies! But, we do make a point of going out at least once every two weeks and doing something, whether it’s a movie/dinner, seeing a play, etc. We also lovvve home and garden shows. 

Now that we live in a new town, we’re going out more because there’s sooo much more to do here, but i’m sure that’ll die down once we’re more settled ๐Ÿ™‚

we often go snowshoeing or for a walk together. sometimes we go out for dinner and a movie, but we both have pretty stressful schedules right now so usually its nice just to have a few beers, cook dinner, and watch a movie or play a game at home.

we do stuff with other couples too- board games, having people over for dinner/going to their houses for dinner, or going for hikes.

We usually go to the movies. We are new to the area so we haven’t found much to do out here yet.  Maybe we will go to Dave and Busters later. We are kinda of spontaneous and don’t plan date nights. We get bored and then go out. lol

We are always looking for new stuff to do in ‘date night’ too. Ours is always on Thursday night. We used to do dinner then a bar for drinks but we are trying to get away from the bar scene too. We sometimes cook together, play the Wii or go rent a new Wii game, play board games together, have a fire and talk, or go work out together.

We tend to grab some thing to eat on fridays thats usually our night out, we try to save money (planning a wedding!!) so sometimes its just a pizza at our local fave joint and pick up a movie at red box (its only a $1) or a local chain place (we get giftcards for dinner places around the holidays – so thats handy!) we will get together with some of my couple friends for game night and beers its usually cheap and lots of fun  ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re also off the bar scene. I’m finding the mid-late twenties are a tough playing field. I feel like we’re too old to be downing shots and chugging beer at some seedy bar (wouldn’t want to anyway), but young enough to feel like a dud if we have too many “evenings in”.

My SO and I are both pretty busy with work during the week, so we’ve become a bit boring when it comes to quality time spent together. Sometimes, our version of work-week bonding is sitting close to each other on the couch while I browse the web and he plays a video game. But we’re trying to come up with easy, inexpensive date night ideas to avoid this kind of lazy behavior.

A few resturaunts and pubs in town hold trivia nights each week, and it’s something we’ve been meaning to try for a while now. We live right by the ocean, so we occasionally take sunset strolls along the water after work – sometimes we bring something to nibble on. Bowling, arcades, mini golf, and laser tag – all within reach for us. We just need to get crackin’ and take advantage of these things more often.

We don’t have “date night” as such, but are often found in YoSushi or other local restaurants ๐Ÿ™‚ occassionally the cinema, and more recently, going out for a run (not so fun!).

Boyfriend and I eat out a lot, it’s something we enjoy so it’s a part of our weekly routine quite a bit. But when we actually have a “date night” it usually has something to do with a nice dinner at one of our places we like followed by a movie or whatever. Sometimes after that we’ll follow up with some frozen yogurt. But usually we’re satisfied with dinner and a movie. We have yet to go bowling but we keep meaning to. Sometimes we’ll go play arcade games too. We like to battle each other in ski ball. lol We’re nerds…

Generally, BF and I enjoy staying home (after going out to eat of course). We just like to head back home, get in our comfy PJ’s and watch CSI or Glee. lol That’s kind of “our thing…” and we like it. Simple. ๐Ÿ™‚

We hardly ever get a date night, very hard with our almost 2yr old. But on the rare occasion we’ll have dinner & a movie or to AC for dinner & gambling or dave & busters is always fun. But we try to sneak away from work for a lunch date & early movie at least 1 day a week while babygirls @ daycare.
