Date Night {OUT}--Around Town

Last weekend my daughter was at her grandparent's house.  Being down one kid, we decided to do a date night out.

Since it was a last minute date, we resorted to the movie idea.  But then we decided there was really nothing we wanted to see.  So Matt whipped up this fun date idea!

He wrote down six different silly challenges and put them in a hat.  We then took off driving and listening to fun music.  As he drove, I pulled out a challenge.  When we finished each activity, we pulled out another.  The challenges took us to six different locales, got us laughing, got us out of the house, and was relatively inexpensive.

So if you want a night out on the town, consider modifying these challenges (or making up your own).

Challenge #1--Go to Matt's office and play three rounds of pictionary.  Winner gets five minutes of back tickles.

Challenge #2--Go to a bookstore.  Take 10 minutes to find the following: a book your spouse would hate, a book your spouse would love BUT would never admit to loving, and the sexiest book you can find (that isn't from the "self-help" sex area).  After 10 minutes, sit down and share why you chose what you chose and why.

Challenge #3--Go to a place you've never been before and order a drink (this can be a restaurant, bar, coffee shop ... just go somewhere new)!

Challenge #4--Go to Target, Wal-Mart, etc.  Take 10 minutes to find something that your spouse would be SUPER embarrassed to buy (giant underwear, anyone?).  Don't buy it but have a good laugh!

Challenge #5--Drive to the park.  Find a song on the radio and turn it way up.  Open the car doors and share a dance together!

Challenge #6--Take $1.50 each and go into a convenience store.  Buy your spouse something for dessert.  Drive to a remote location, hold hands, and eat dessert in the car. Talking with your mouth full encourage.


  1. I love this date! We are totally doing this somday soon! :) Sounds fun!

  2. That is so cute! What a great idea! :)

  3. That sounds so much fun, unfortunately neither myself or my fiance drive or own a car so we'd struggle with some of these, but they could easily be twisted to cater for none-drivers. Very cute!

  4. I LOVE this idea!
