Hello Dating Divas!
I am excited to be guest posting today. Who wouldn’t love this fun blog all about creative dates?! I am Tiffany from Simply Modern Mom, a site dedicated to simplifying the lives of modern moms. And at the beginning of this year, my husband Nathan and I took upon ourselves a challenge to date each other once a week for a year totaling 52 dates. We call it our Project 52: Date Nights. And just for fun, we invited everyone to join us in this challenge to make a difference in their marriage too.
The project came about when Nathan and I realized that after a full day of work, school, taking care of the kids and house, we didn’t have any time for each other. We also didn’t have the budget to pay a babysitter each week for us to go out on a date. So we redefined the term “dating” for it to include at-home dates. We drafted this Project 52: Date Nights downloadable pledge for you and your spouse to come up with criteria of what you defines as a date.
Nathan and I have been coming up with some creative ideas for at-home date nights. We discussed books and created a cafe atmosphere in our dining room. We looked through each other’s high school year books. We played games such as First Words (printable on Simply Modern Mom). A while ago, Nathan and I played Would You Rather… with a free printable of the game on Simply Modern Mom. It’s a pretty simple game. You cut up the scenario cards. Toss them in a bowl and take turns drawing out two scenarios for the question, Would you rather this or that?
Each Tuesday I have a linky party where we all link up our dates and go around blogosphere reading each other’s dates. It is a great way for all of us to exchange exciting date ideas and support each other in this year long challenge. Please come join us! You can start Project 52: Date Nights anytime. Happy dating!
