You guys have had to put up with my complaining about working extra, but the truth is I had a good reason for those extra shift. I splurged on my hubs and bought him a new TV for his birthday. He actually picked it out last week. I didn’t want to make such a big decision without his input.
Yes, he’s totally loving it. And yes, I’m an awesome wife.
Even though I scored major points with this gift, I wanted him to have something to open on his birthday. Something on the cheap. You know, because I spent all my money already on the TV.
I’ve seen different ideas for a date a month on Pinterest, but I put a little twist on mine. I listed twelve things that we can do after the kids are in bed. Most are free, others are close to it. Nothing on the list is more than $5 at the most.
All I did was print my list, cut it into strips and place it in a container. I used a silver heart container that Ronnie gave me when we were first married.
Here’s my list of ideas:
Stargazing on a blanket
Ice cream on the swingMovie night
Breakfast in bed
Wii game night
Card gameDinner for 2 at home
Dessert for two
Pedicure just for you.
I tried to choose things that I should make time for, but I really don't. None of these ideas cost much, or actually take that much time. And they can all be done after the kids are in bed, which means no need for a sitter.
Yeah for cheap dates!
