What We Do for the Big Day

The Big Day. There are two each year in my book: Wedding Anniversary and Birthdays. These can sometimes be as challenging as a playoff win for Peyton Manning. I speak tongue in cheek but also with a small grain of honesty. As a guy here’s…

Picnic + Big Cheese Squeeze

Mark it. April 15th, 2013. Four months into our date night experiment, I almost threw in the towel. Not entirely, but just for one date. We’ll call it a moment of fogginess. We came off a whirlwind weekend and were just looking to relax, couldn’t…

Driving Range + Cheese Soufflé

Driving Range + Cheese Soufflé

Venturing into unknown territory can be uncomfortable but is usually where the most innovation, creativity, and (in our case) fun is cultivated. Our past date night involved both an uncomfortable (for Britt) date adventure and unknown (for both of us) meal. We had a great…

Britt and I are big-time budgeters…eh, big time might be a bit much…most of the time we’re budgeters. We allot $50 a month for our date nights and begin our new budget on the 15th of each month. We had $5 left for this weeks…

7 Down, 45 To Go!

7 Down, 45 To Go!

I wanted to give a little update on how this whole date night experiment has been at the two-month point. Exhaustion and busyness seem to be the consistent distractions. Some weeks we have been more tired than others going into our date night, especially a…

Two Months In

Two Months In

Four months ago, the average date night planned by yours truly was a last-minute scramble and oftentimes peaked by watching an episode of The Office together (nothing against The Office). Date nights seemed to feel more like a night off and not an intentional, oneness building…
