Last Christmas, I did something out-of-the-box for Brian’s Christmas gift.
2013 was a pretty big and busy year for Brian and I, and I knew I wanted to make sure we still had time for “us” as we ended our engagement and went into our first year of marriage.
I preplanned and prepaid 12 monthly date nights for us to enjoy throughout the year.
Each month Brian and I would get together to open that month’s date night envelope to see what our next date would be.
It was so fun to have a little surprise each month!
Ever since I posted about our January Date Night, that post has been one of the top posts on the blog, one of the top pins from my pinterest boards, and I have received several e-mails asking about the details of the other dates. That being said, I have decided to compile all the dates into one post for your convenience 🙂
Indoor Rock Climbing at Climb Time Indy
We each received $20 to purchase a gift for each other and we cooked dinner together.
Walk around downtown Indianapolis and grab frozen yogurt at Yogulatte.
We were planning on volunteering to walk dogs from the animal shelter, but unfortunately this date did not pan out.
This date actually got changed at the last minute because of our crazy schedules at this point in the year. Even still, we carved out time for more fro yo and a movie at home 🙂
Apple picking at Tuttle Orchards
Lunch at one of our favorite local cafes, Cafe Patachou.
We cooked dinner together again! This time, Brian was in charge of the main meal, and I was in charge of dessert.
Christmas Lights at the Indianapolis Zoo
So there you have it! Our year full of dates 🙂
Question of the Morning:
- Are you planning anything like this for your significant other?
- What dates would you add to the rotation?
