The Weekend Date List With Outfit Details
It's the weekend, and we have no plans. Hubby wants to have a private date night at Bob's Steakhouse. But I want to go home and prop my feet up. So, guess what do we do at the last minute? Nonetheless, I came up with three super quick date night out ideas.


Ok, I thought I would share this with you guys because life is funny and I am still learning to roll with the punches. You know trying to fit time in to keep the marriage spicy. As couples, it is so easy to become complacent in your relationship. I know for me it is. If I am tired, I can come up with some good excuses not to play wifey. Hey, it happens and its called work and mommy life.

You know trying to fit time in to keep the marriage spicy. As couples, it is so easy to become complacent in your relationship. I know for me it is. If I am tired, I can come up with some good excuses not to play wifey. Hey, it happens and its called work, mommy life.

Although those are good excuses, let's face it a man needs and wants his time no matter what is going on in life. 
Now that brings me to this point. Rico wanted to go out for wine, dinner and a movie. Ha, not tonight so I sent him a list of things to do under 20 dollars.

The first thing I sent was a list of specials at one of our favorite greasy burger joints. Please do not judge me this was my cheat night. No workouts or diets on the weekends. #sorrynotsorry

But hey for  6.99 we both can get our own double giant cheeseburger combo meal that also comes with fries and a drink. I put this idea first because we can never go wrong with sitting in a country homestyle burger joint. Oh, and I love a good burger piled with onions and mustard. 


The second thing I sent was a discount to go and bowl for 10 dollars at the snooty fox. I must add this wasn't a real one because I wanted to do the first thing I sent. But, of course, he challenged me to go out to the snooty fox alley. So I was forced to tell him that I made that place up. It doesn't exist here in Dallas, Texas. Yall I have a sneaky suspicion he knew that. :) 


The third and real idea I sent him was a 2 for 20 coupons for a pool night at the Billards. I did remind him it would be loud and packed. I would prefer to have a quiet night at home if nothing on the list pleases him. 

I am happy to announce the first choice won, and I did not have to go home and get dressed up. I wore what I wore this morning. 

The funny part about this story is I was tired, but I know if I want to keep a healthy marriage. I need to make a small amount of time for hubs away from home.

I want to add we talked for two hours about life and new things that are ahead of us. Such as moving to another state, possibly to Utah. But I will be sharing more on that good news later in another post. So, stay tuned because we are relocating. Can you guess where?

So, the best part about date night is no matter what anyone says it doesn't have to cost an arm and two legs. As a matter of fact, there are all kinds of cool discounts and apps online for couples to have an enjoyable date in the city. 

I love my husband I hope he loves me. :) lol
Therefore I do not need to have steak and potatoes with a glass of chardonnay wine to be happy and fulfilled. I just want the time and laughs with him even if at a greasy burger joint. And that is real life.


In conclusion: We did stop and pick up a blueberry pie and vanilla ice cream. Yep, its Netflix and chill time. I may have been a little tired, but I put my best foot forward and made my husband happy, and now he is knocked out while I work on this blog post. So, I won this battle after all. I am home at a decent time. Well, good night my friends because its back to work in the am.

Remember life is not perfect but life is supposed to be full of peace, love, joy, and happiness.
Make sure you get all of that by any means necessary.

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!

  1. My plans for the weekend are to eat some good shrimp, go to a movie and of course hang out with the family! I also think a cool date night idea is to plan a little sno cone date or just get your favorite dessert out!
