We always love hearing about the dates the MEN come up with!  One of our readers, Mindy, shared one in which her husband used one of her favorite things and turned it into a very creative date.  Here she is:

Just wanted to share a fun date my husband took me on…he thought it up all by himself!

I LOVE funky socks.  I’ve got all colors, styles, lengths, fabrics and more.  On Thursday, my husband Mike invited me to a date that would ‘Knock My Socks Off.’  When Saturday came around he handed me a bundle of brand new, funky, and totally awesome socks.  There were five of them.  He said there would be five parts to our date and each sock corresponded with what we would do.  This took some prep on his part because each sock had to possibly count for five things, depending on how I eliminated them.  Each of the five things varied in expense, so there was no way I could randomly pick all the expensive things in a row.

The first sock was dinner.  The sock colors coordinated with our dinner options (red and yellow-Mexican, black with bear-Chinese, etc, etc.).  The next 3 socks were our activiites (go to Barnes and Noble and read all the sock books we could find in the children’s section, go shopping in just our socks, go watch a movie and count the people who are wearing socks, go shopping for new shoes to cover my socks–I really needed new shoes!–, etc, etc.)  The last sock was dessert, and they didn’t have anything to do with socks, per say, but did include all of my favorite places to get yummy treats!  It was so fun….and I got new socks out of it!!  It certainly ‘knocked my socks off!’
Thanks a bunch, Mindy for sending that idea in!  You could totally use this same concept for ANYTHING that is your spouse’s “favorite” thing!  How fun!


I am an outgoing and fun-lovin’ gal who was lucky enough to marry the man of my dreams! You could probably say I am an “extreme extrovert” as I LOVE to talk and be around people! I love ANYTHING creative and am not a fan of the “norm.” My favorite things in life are my family… especially my HOT husband, my friends, and my faith! After a long infertility journey, we brought two miracle babies into this world via IVF and then a SURPRISE bundle of joy recently decided to join us. I have a passion for life and I am having a BLAST running this website with some of my closest friends. Life just keeps getting better and better!
