LUCKILY we had nothing to worry about! We have made some AWESOME friends who are laid back, tonz of fun, and CrAzY enough to hang out with US!!!
…..and we convinced a few of them to go on this “FUNKY TOWN” date with us….

The most AMAZING Joanna of Cutify Creative whipped these pretty printables up for our crazy Funky Town Date Night! We are in LOVE with them!!
We presented the guys with the below invites and told them to prepare to have a LOTTA fun… and kept everything a surprise.
We (the girls) planned a potluck meal and everyone brought their assigned food items so we could have a nice meal together BUT there was a twist…
…instead of silverware, we had to use CRAZY kitchen utensils!
We put everything in a bag and everyone had to stick their hand in (without looking) and choose a utensil to eat with.
(I had to get creative and I ate with the OTHER end! The whisk is TRICKY!!)
You could make the dinner even more creative and come up with a quirky menu to hand out. I was going to create a cute menu, but I ran outta time. If any of YOU make one, I would love to see what it looks like! We had a delicious crockpot chicken dish and if I would’ve made a menu, the chicken would’ve been: “The Chicken That Didn’t Quite Cross The Road.” Ha!
THEN – after our yummy dinner, we piled into cars and took our men to the next location:
YEP – a thrift store!!
We each handed our spouse a ten-dollar bill and informed them that they needed to go pick out an outfit for their wife and we (each armed with a ten-dollar bill) would then pick out an outfit for our husband.
We could NOT stop laughing! It was SOOOO much fun and SOOO dang funny! We were probably the LOUDEST ones in the whole store and I am sure a few of the customers were probably annoyed but the employees liked us! 🙂
We met up at the front after about a half hour and the clerk was DYING when he saw what we had picked out for each other! We then went back to one of the couple’s houses and changed into our “new” outfits….
…and HERE is yours truly with my husband, Jamie.
- “Save The Boobs” Shirt
- “Jesus is my Homeboy” Hat
- Big Bird Shirt
- Shorts made out of TOWELS
- Turquoise Beret
Here is my HOT husband demonstrating that one….
Oh my goodness Tara this date has you written ALLLL over it!!! I wish we lived closer!!
You have me laughing so hard that my stomach hurt. I know that this is something my husband would never do with me but I really enjoyed reading your blog.
Hi! I LOVE this idea! But the M&M Bowling pdf isn’t working. 🙁
Hey Christi! It’s working for me. Try right-clicking and saving it to your desktop. XOXO
I love it! I cannot wait to play like this with my husband and some friends…and I know JUST the couples to ask! LOL! THANK you! I will let y’all know how it goes 🙂
This looks like SOOO much fun! I can think of a few friends that this would be alot of fun with. If only they lived closer 🙁
I am totally doing this! I LOVE IT!
I live in Vegas too and my friends and I are SOO doing this…thank you!
You are a fun bunch of people. Love this date and the crazy outfits. I'm totally trying this one. Following you now too.
Just reading through all your fun date nights!
Another fun twist on Bowling:
Uno Bowling! Bring an Uno Deck of cards, and draw a card befor eyou bowl. If you get a number, you can ONLY take that many steps even if it's the wrong forward you bowl from. If it's a skip, You skip then bowl (funner to watch the men skip). If it's a reverse, you do it backwards, etc etc…
Just found your blog via the carnival and have to say this is such a pleasant surprise! Terrific idea and I love the pictures of the outfits from Goodwill. I'll be back to steal more good luvin' ideas!
So we tried the funky town date and it was soooo fun! We got so many funny looks walking through London in our charity shop get up. The boys were a bit too competetive and soon gave up on the m&m challenge – but whilst it lasted it was great! We didn't do the pot luck thing and gorged on rootbeer floats at the diner afterwards. It is on two posts on my blog –
As we were waiting for the pics to come though. My sister has the best shots of us as a group…so those might still be coming too!
Thanks for the idea and I love this blog! x
I just found your blog, it is great! I love this idea and I know my honey will, too. Thanks for all the fun tips!
That is HIL-A-RIOUS! And Dustin does NOT look happy about his eating utensil! hahaha!
It was SOOOOOOOOOOO much fun, We are so glad you guys moved to Vegas! But what is the deal with me having my eyes shut in every single picture? hahahaa LOSER! Love the post, love you even more! 🙂
How fun! That is an awesome idea.
