As you might know by now, we like to do a monthly date night. We started it … two years ago, I think? … and have kept it going since.
Sometimes it’s simple – just dinner out. Sometimes it’s a bit more.
But what do you do when everything’s closed?
You figure out a way to do date night at home.
First of all, you dress up, because sweats aren’t gonna do it.
Secondly, you get take out from a place you’d maybe normally do dinner at if it were a normal date night.
In our case, we went to Rio, which we’ve done a few times for date night before. Mainly because we love their damn fajitas.
Next, you do a fun activity. In our case, it was building a couch fort in which to watch a movie in.
Or attempting, as the case may be. We successfully made one at our apartment back in the day, but this effort? FAIL.
As a result, you want to have a solid plan B. The husband actually came up with a great one – make a super comfy spot on the floor in which to watch a movie on.
Finally, we rented a movie on DirecTV in order to make it more “date-like” as opposing to just choosing something out of the DVD collection. In our case, it was something I’d seen before but B hadn’t – the LEGO Movie. I did not guess who much he’d love it, but he did.
And in full disclosure, we changed into comfy clothes for the movie part. There are perks to date night at home, and one is not having to stay in heels.
Hoping we can do something a bit more out and about for May, but if not, we know how to improvise.
