Date Night {IN}--NYSDM--Back to the Future

For this addition of Not Your Standard Dinner and a Movie, go on a trip Back to the Future.  Eat dinner, rummage through the past, make plans for the future, and snuggle in for a little space travel with Doc!

 What you'll need:
  • Back to the Future (any or all)
  • Movie time snacks: soda, popcorn, M&Ms, Hot Tamales
  • Favorite foods from your childhood (pizza, hot dogs, etc.)
  • Paper and pencils
  • Photo albulms
  • Blankets/pillows
  • Dress in 80s outfits if you really want to make it fun and thematic!

Before your date, call your mother-in-law and find out what foods your husband loved as a kid (if you don't know already).  Make those special delicacies for dinner (can you say Mac-n-cheese?).

Now, break out old photos.  Share pictures and memories.  Laugh at his crazy antics and your big teeth; his mom's whacked out hairdo and your mom's questionable fashion sense.

You can learn to make this here

Next, each of you get out a piece of paper and write down 20 things that your spouse probably doesn't know about your past (even if you've been married for fifteen  years).  How about that time you peed your pants?

Free from here

After that, flip the paper over and make a list of 5 things you'd like to accomplish together in the next year.

And now the grand finale!  Get your snacks and drinks and get your 80s movie groove on!

You can buy this gift basket here!

Far out!
