Being more intentional about getting time together as a couple sans kiddos meant we had to put it on the calendar. At the end of 2013, I added a monthly date night onto our Google calendar for the 3rd Monday of the month. (I wrote more about Marriage Goals in Action at Next Level Mama.) We haven’t planned the dates much beyond that point. Most of our date nights have been having dinner out (because we’re wannabe foodies), but we have stretched ourselves to be creative before, so hopefully we can vary things through the year. Any date night ideas?
May Date Night
I think we had a mini-date night this month already, but it had been a whirlwind of activities with the end-of-school-year stuff going on, so we needed some us time. Our church was having a family movie night, so we sent the kids off with the grandparents, and left for a date, which of course, consisted of feeding our bellies (thus the blog post title 😉 hehe)! The girls had a great time and even won a copy of Horton Hears a Who! DVD at the movie night.
Perhaps our goal is to go to all the sushi places in the area. We ended up at Sushiland, which is a small place off of Mission Blvd in Hayward. I remember driving down this street many times during college years. The restaurant got fairly good reviews on Yelp, so off we went.
While we didn’t do much out of the ordinary, it was nice to go somewhere sans kiddos. I don’t think there were other kids at this restaurant either, so we also didn’t have to hear other people’s child bothering them. :p
