Power Outage Date

Lights OUT,  date night ON!

There is so much fun to be had without electricity!

This date idea did not come to me on a whim but rather occurred by circumstance.  A few months ago, we were hit by a bad storm which caused our power to go out.  It wasn’t just a few hours but instead FOUR days without power! Thank goodness for nearby family!  Looking back we can laugh, and that’s why I decided to plan this Power Outage date.  It is a fun reminder of some of the creative things we came up with to keep us busy during this unpleasant time!

  1. Hello! We are going to do this date tonight and are so excited! Thank you! Also… the “truth or dare” link is wrong. It takes you to a counseling agency website. Just a heads up! Thanks again for all you do!

  2. Try a nearly two week power outage. And a 6 day one in the dad of winter. With a sprinkling of 2-3 power outages in between. All in one year. And I only live 15 min outside of a city, it’s not as if i’m in the middle of nowhere >.< Needless to say, I have become an expert in power outages & my pantry is always stocked with things that can be made over a campfire, grill, or portable burner. These are some nice ideas for making it fun for us adults, our kids take all the glow jewelry though (monsters! don't even share!) 🙂

  3. i have done this before a few years ago, not because the lights went out but because i am a romantic who happens to love music and candles and doing sweet little different things like this. things like this are right up my alley
