Hi! I’m Michelle from A Little Tipsy. I am so excited to be here with the Dating Divas! I love all their creative date ideas and have fun browsing through them to liven up our “post kids” date nights.
I am a SAHM of two boys (3 and 5 months) who has a love for cereal treats, nutella, and bargain shopping. Swing by to find creative projects you can do during nap time for less cash than lunch out. One of my goals for the new year was to go out on a planned date once a month. Well, we’ve upped the ante and decided that on those weeks that we do not go out, we will do a date in after the kiddos are asleep. We are taking turns planning it and it was my week last week. While driving to pick up the hubs from work, the CD player rotated to Monster Ballads and I was totally inspired. I know, inspired from the music of big hair bands. But I was! I decided it would be so fun to plan a 90’s date since that was during both of our high school years. While pondering what to do I came up with the date theme, “What if we had met in high school.” We always joke about it, so why not pretend for the night? It started out with this gym bag full of basketball attire for the hubs. I took inspiration from our actual high school lives. There was a note inside that said, “While I was at drill team practice, I noticed you at basketball practice across the hall.” We both got dressed in the appropriate attire, he in his basketball uniform (the actual jersey saved from high school) and me in my Rockette sweatshirt (I dug out from the depths of my closet) and yoga pants.
Once we were clothed in our high school duds he found a note in the pocket of his shorts that said, “You have to see her again. You go ask her if she is going to Kevan’s party tonight.” (Kevan was one of his best friend’s in HS) I, of course, said I was. I instructed him that the family room was Kevan’s house and I got my standard HS party food and met him there.
