Free Date Night

Since I cannot seem to go to sleep, one of my friends offered a few questions for me to start blogging about. So here I go:

A couple weeks ago on facebook I asked my friends to give me some ideas about having a date night with Mr H. where we didn't spend any money and my friends delivered. They gave me a bunch of ideas. Such as:

»Going to The Dayton Art Institute
»Going to The Air Force Museum
»Going to the mall and pick out funny outfits for each other to try on and take pictures to post on facebook
»Swing at the park
»Play in the Sprinkler
»Go to Barnes and Noble, grab 2 nice chairs and relax while reading
»Go play in the mud
»Mud volleyball
»Mud wrestling
»Slip n Slide
»Play dress up and put make-up on Tom
»Test drive cars
»Play card games
»Go to Cox Arboretum and take a picnic lunch
»Play in the fountain at The Greene
»Play truth of dare at Wal-Mart
»TP my parents house
»Go through our closet and pull out clothes we don't ware anymore and "make" a new outfit out of them. It could be an outfit for one person, both, or a future child
»Roast marshmallows in a fireplace and sing campfire songs
»Dress crazy and go to Wal-Mart and take pictures to submit here
»Picnic in the park and star gaze
»Go for a bike ride
»Talk about each other and what you love the most about each other. No talking about the kids, bills, work, or school. You can talk about God and how much he loves you both
»Do facials on each other
»Soak each other's feet and massage

I think that all of these ideas were great and I want to thank everyone who contributed. Mr H. and I decided to walk around the mall and check out the puppies for sale in one of the shops. It was a lot of fun and we played with a little Shih-tzu, she was only 9 weeks old and was so cute. Now, most of you know, I'm not a huge animal fan, but I think I loved "looking" because I knew we would NEVER be able to get one and I also liked that I could hand the dog back after we were done playing with it.

Trying to come up with ideas for a free date night was interesting and also very hard. It's nice to know that Mr H. and I can enjoy each other's company without worrying about breaking the bank. We've spent numerous nights just staying up and talking and I love those moments. I love my husband and I love the special time we have together.
