I sure do enjoy a night out on the town, but I also enjoy being at home! I decided my husband and I were in need of a date night at home that was simple, relaxing and electronic free! We are both, let’s say rather addicted to our smart phones and have a tendency to be on them….A LOT!
I told my husband in the morning that once the kids were in bed, we were going to turn everything off and just be together. I also told him we would each choose one treat and a game to play.
Choice #1: A Treat
I am currently obsessed with seven layer bars (Which hello…are so easy to make… I can’t believe I haven’t been making these weekly! ). If you want an easy recipe, check this one out here!
My husband is a big fan of hot chocolate, so that was his pick. We love adding candy canes to make our hot chocolate to make it even sweeter!
Choice #2: A Game
So with treats in hand, my husband was the first to go. He picked a board game. However, we had to play it in candle light. First of all, it was SO nice to not have the distractions of our phones/computer. We just focused on the game at hand and of course each other. There is something to be said about playing a game in candle light.
After we enjoyed a game, (which he won by the way), it was my turn!
A year ago, I did a post called Hot Topics at Dinner. This was a fun family idea for dinner time. Each family member picked a “Hot Topic” and answered the question. Well, I thought why not create something like this, but for a relationship. So, earlier in the day, I quickly made a jar and printed off a six page list full of all sorts of questions!
You can make your own jar in five minutes!
What You Need:
1. A jar
2. Print, “Let’s Talk” Question List here!
Optional: You can “spice” it up a little with some ribbon & scrapbooking paper to make it look a little more festive.
We had a great time taking turns and answering questions about ourselves. Sometimes we would guess what each other would say and sometimes we would let it be a surprise. I’ve known my husband for sixteen years and thought I knew everything about him. However, this question list covers A LOT of information! So….needless to say, I learned several new things!
Well, there it is…a quick and quiet night with your spouse at home.
I hope you enjoy the “Let’s Talk” question list as much as we did.
