Fall n' Love- The Fall season is near and the Holidays will come rushing around the corner. This is the perfect time to visit a Fall Fair or Carnival, drive around and see Christmas lights, just enjoy the season together! Check out a local listing of things going on in your city and take a chance on a few. You never know, you may find something that will become a tradition for you and your boo!
Dream Night- Time for some vision planning! Grab you boo and head to your nearest Half Priced Books or even Target to grab some journals. Head home or to your nearest Starbucks or coffee shop and discuss your dreams and goals. Who better to share your visions and aspirations with than your significant other. This is a great time to get to know more about what they desire to do in the future and where they are headed. Being able to trust sharing your ideas and hopes with your partner is a huge plus!
Big Spender- There's nothing wrong with splurging every once in awhile. Use this night to get dressed up and head to nice restaurant followed by a good concert or dancing. Spend more than you usually would on your outfit and your meal. You work hard and you deserve to treat yourself every once and awhile. Plus you'll love the compliments you'll get from your partner on how good you look!
Serve in Love- A couples that gives back to their community, is a couple that values Love. Find a local charity or organization that could use some help and give back. Sign up to help at a soup kitchen, read to hospital patients, or spend some time at your local nursing home. You never know, they may just be able to give you some tips on how to make your love last!
Cooking Wars- Choose a new recipe and head the store together! Get all the ingredients for your meal and split up the menu. See whose dish comes out the best and don't forget the dessert! If you have a little more money to spend try signing up for a cooking class instead. This will be fun and tasty, who doesn't love food?
Future Dreaming- Grab your partner and a few notebooks! Spend time discussing where you see your relationship going in the future. Discuss everything from future travel ideas, where you see your relationship going, and what you would like to accomplish together as a couple. Depending how far you are into your relationship, this may be good time to discuss your dream home, car, and maybe even drive by a few houses to get some ideas.
Game Night- Grab some of your favorite snacks and old school games! I'm talking Speed, I Declare War, Scrabble, Sorry, Connect Four, or whatever games you like and stay in for the night. Use this time to chill and enjoy each other while laughing and showing your competitive side. Add some spice by throwing in an incentive at the end of the night for who wins the most.
Staycation- Use the weekend to explore places you've never even thought of before, right in your own city. Some of the best restaurants are the ones we've passed by day after day. The coolest little shops and activities we've probably never even thought of. Spend the weekend trying something new, right where you are. For a special treat stay a nice hotel near by or an Airbnb, it'll give the weekend that real vacation feel.
Work Hard, Play Hard- Plan a day to be a big kid again! Go to the park and hop on the swings, even add in a picnic. Or head to your local trampoline park or arcade center and enjoy yourselves. We spend a lot of time working and being serious use this date to just laugh and enjoy each others company. Throw in some old school favorites like ice cream sundaes or penny candy while riding to oldies to end the date.
The Classics- Movies never go out of style! Choose a movie you both have been anticipating to see and have a dinner& movie night out! Dress up and get out the house! Choose a restaurant that may not be your usual spot to switch things up a bit and enjoy yourself!
