Old West Date

So, Aaron (my hubby) had a birthday last month. I gave him a gift of 25 or so dates. I made outlines and attached them to bags containing envelopes and packages with everything needed for the date. Some of them are "go out" dates and some are "stay in" dates. And since I think all married couples can benefit from date nights I think I will be posting one every once in a while.

This past weekend we had an Old West date night. Here is an image of the outline:

The outline on the bag.

Inside was an envelope with the invite (#1):
Also a package labeled #2 with bandannas in it and a package of cookies labeled #3.

So we opened the invite earlier in the day. Then after the kids were in bed we opened the bandannas and then we looked up some line dance instructions on youtube, learned a couple dances and then made a line dance playlist on itunes and danced around our living room. It sounds cheesy, but it was a lot of fun. Then we watched American Outlaws.

It was inexpensive, we didn't need to get a babysitter and it was all planned out already- sweet! We had a fun time doing something special. So go get your honey and have a date!


  1. you are so creative. What a very fun idea!

    1. What a great idea! I need to do something like that. I just wish Adam were as fun as Aaron. Adam just likes to eat for dates. You have inspired me to try something different!
