Thoughts on Thursday: Date Night Jar

While looking through a linky post this week I stumbled upon this idea from Krista @ While He was Napping. I really liked this idea so I asked if I could share with you and she said yes!

I seem to always have grandiose ideas and dreams for date night.  And I’m always disappointed because I’m not in a situation to always make them come to fruition.  So, for my back up plan when I realize “It’s Thursday and I still don’t have anything planned!” I came up with The Date Night Jar.  I found some things I want to do around our area or other ideas that would be fairly easy to pull together.  I typed them up, printed them out and cut them apart.  Then I folded them and put all my strips in an empty Mason jar (which, of course, I cutesy-ied up).  Then I let my hubby choose one on Thursday night or Friday morning (or if I forget, I just pick one).  Usually, I don’t let him see it… build a little suspense and anticipation… but sometimes I do.  Your call.  Then I plan it and bam, date night is good to go!  See how easy that was!

What a great idea huh? MAC and I sat down the very day I read this and made our list of dates that we want to do around the city. Hope you do the same!

  1. This is such a great idea! Jason and I rarely get time alone these days but when we do, we often spend it by doing our own things. I think if I made this jar, we can rekindle a lot of the sparks that we had before we had E 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

  2. Great idea! I’m such a geek that I might make it into an evernote note that I can take all over the place with me … but the idea of making a list so you don’t have to stress every time you realize you have date night coming up is fabulous!

    I’m going to be sharing this in a post I’m writing about keeling the love alive

  3. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
