Our perfect at home date night

My husband and I used to be so great about “dating” each other. Whether we were going out for date night or staying in, we made sure it happened at least twice a month. I believe it’s so important to date your spouse and keep your romance alive. As much as I love my kids, those times with my husband are beyond needed. Those times where we have real adult conversation, can linger quietly over a meal, steal kisses, and just simply enjoy each other. Yeah, those times absolutely recharged me and I was more than ready to take on the week and I could always tell when it had been too long since we had a date night; I don’t know how to really explain it besides, I just felt irritated and off. Like, I just needed one on one time with my husband. I needed to get out of the house with him or stay in with him, either way, I just needed time with him. Before we found out I was pregnant, our date nights had started going down to once a month and sometimes, we would even completely skip a month due to my husband’s work schedule, but we were doing our best to still make date nights work. One of my favorite date night’s while I was pregnant happened while we were in south padre and I’ll never forget that memory. Once I got put on bed rest, you can imagine our date nights became non existent because Hubby was trying to balance it all while I wasn’t allowed to do anything.

Being put on bed rest gave me a lot of time to think though. I knew the twins could arrive anytime and I knew we were going to have two babies + our two older boys to care for. I knew that my days were going to go from sun up until sun down with how busy I was going to be. I knew that my time would be even more stretched and I began to wonder if there was anything I just wasn’t willing to comprise on. When you become a momma, even for the first time, you sacrifice a lot of your time for your child{ren} and that’s exactly how it should be. Putting my kids needs before my own was a natural instinct for me and most days, I have zero problems with doing that. Like I said though, realizing how much more of my time would be stretched, I knew there was going to be a couple of things I wouldn’t budge on because I just need these times. I’ll get into the others later, but for now, one thing I wasn’t giving up was date night with my husband. It is so easy to get caught up in being a momma, running the kids here and there, errands, keeping up with the house, laundry, and so much more. Add in for the past seven weeks I had been going to the hospital every single day to visit my babies..

As you can see, making time for my husband, making time to be his wife, and solely focus on us, can get lost and lost rather quickly. One thing I told myself I was going to do in the new year, is to make sure our date nights stay alive. I know we won’t have as many as we once had, at least for awhile, but I told myself we can manage once a month. Even if we don’t get out of the house for our date night, we could easily have different types of date nights at home. What I love about having date night’s at home is they are alot cheaper, we don’t have to find a sitter because we can wait until after all the little ones are asleep, and we can have any type of night we want at home. For our first date night, I decided on a romantic night.

I ran to walmart to grab everything I needed. For this super simple, yet romantic date night you will need:
- Something for dinner. I chose to make spaghetti so I gathered all the ingredients I would need for that.
- Wine or a drink of choice.
- Wine glasses.

As you can see, I didn’t spend an arm and a leg for this because after I finish making dinner, I can switch the mood to romance without having to spend big bucks to make it romantic. A delicious meal with the lights down low, quiet conversation, kisses that taste as good as the wine your drinking; is all you need for a romantic date night. In an atmosphere like that, you might just love what happens next, but I’ll leave that for your imagination for you and your spouse. Ladies, don’t be scared to ask your man to try out the K-Y® YOURS+MINE either. I was pretty nervous about asking him and let’s just say, I had no reason to be. ;) I can’t wait to plan out our next date night!
