We have a couple board games, maybe I'll try that too. Found a ton of ideas on pintrest too, some are as simple as a theme night.....bbq and a western movie or laying out under the stars. I'm willing to try anything, the last month or so with all the drama from x's we really feel like our strong connection is falling to the way side. I'm not too concerned bc it happened about every 2-3 months before i moved here too.
I have so many ideas for date night! I think once a month we will do the "extra special" ones (heck more than that and I'd stress myself out planning them) Tonight is just going to be low key. I'll do hair, makeup and get dolled up. Next week I'm thinking maybe a nice candlelit dinner. Not sure how well that will work with it being so dang sunny until late....maybe curtains in the kitchen and lights off.
WWYD.. Mother's day gift Ideas. I feel like my mom is so hard to buy for... 2 Christmas's ago we bought her a Pandora and thought great now we can just get her beads to go on it when we can't think of anything to get her.. well we haven't really seen her wear it.. So do we continue with the Pandora or do we figure out something else.
Amber good luck with date night ideas.. DH and I try to have Movie night every other Thursday.. one of us grabs a red box movie on our way home from work.
If you've never seen her wear it, I would probably do something different. Or ask if she likes it before buying more beads.
I'm being very simple, but something I know my mom will enjoy. I'm taking her out to lunch. Her choice of restaurant, just her and I. When I was in college, she would come get me at lunch and we would do lunch once a week. We haven't done lunch just her and I since I moved away. And, my dad is a bit of a bore when going out to eat. He goes to the same restaurant and orders the same thing. Even if my mom and dad try some where different, he makes the decision. I told her a few weeks ago that this is what I was doing for her. She's been thinking about where she wants to go since the minute I told her
Mari - I'm with Kim, if you haven't seen her wear it I'd get her something else.
Kim - I love that idea!
When we took all the kids to the zoo for Austin's bday, we took a group photo of the kids so both moms are getting a 5x7 of that. What have you guys told DH you want for mother's day? I really want a mother's ring but if we are thinking about another baby, I don't want to have to spend $ on another one.
