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!
