My husband and I have a big disadvantage, like most married couples that have children I think, that he works crazy changing hours at work plus we have two young daughters that cannot watch themselves (YET!). These two factors make it very hard for us to have a date night to ourselves but as parents and people we have to remember that time together is needed to keep our relationship going strong.
As I mentioned before, getting out isn’t really an option for us that happens too often so a date night in is the perfect way for us to spend quality time together. Our usual nightly routine (when he’s not working until 3am) is me working on the computer and him playing Xbox. We’ve definitely gotten into the habit of doing our own thing even though we’re in the same room.
Being 29 weeks pregnant I don’t really feel good about my new baby body and I’m always feeling extra tired but I have to remember that being pregnant isn’t an excuse and it shouldn’t stop the fun so after dinner and the kids went to sleep we cuddled on the couch for our date night to spend time together, enjoy dessert and have a conversation completely uninterrupted.
I ran to my local Walmart to grab a few things for our night together. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, K-Y Couple Lubricants has released a special package that’s actually a date night in kit, conveniently packaged in one little box! You’ll get the K-Y Yours+Mine Lubricants, plus $40 in gift cards. One is for VUDU where you can order a movie to enjoy together. The other is for Plated – a unique dinner delivery service that will bring two meals right to your door.
So dinner and a movie with your sweetie for just under $15? That cannot be beat if you ask me.
Before I realized the box came with Vudu I had already stopped to grab a movie for us. We can both be total dorks sometimes so I got the new Percy Jackson movie for us to watch together.
It was great to actually spend the night together instead of together but apart like our usual nights and because we had already had dinner at that point in the night and I rented a movie instead we still have the $40 gift cards to use for another night in!
