January Date - Year of Dates

Remember how I told you I gave Mike a year of dates for Christmas? Well, our January date is already here and gone.  

Inside the January envelope was tickets to the movies and a gift certificate to Shoreline Brewery. 

Mike had a beer and a burger at dinner and I had their mac & cheese. It was delicious.  We actually still have a few bucks left on our gift certificate so we may go back for pretzels which we've heard are amazing. 

We saw Taken 3 after dinner. It was a good movie, but I preferred the first two movies over this one. 

After our movie we headed home and opened the envelope for our February date. Can't wait until it's here!

Year of Dates --- Mike's Christmas Present

Mike and I have been together for almost 8 years but when we first met we really didn't do much dating. Now we have two kids and it's even harder to go on dates.  So, for his Christmas present I knew exactly what I wanted to get him. A year of dates!!

First, I had to figure out 12 places we could go and things we could do. That was probably the hardest part.  Then I gathered my supplies. For each month I wrote a paper inside that explained what we were going to do for that month's date. All of the dates are prepaid, so there's a gift certificate or cash inside to cover the date expenses. 

We opened presents a few days before Christmas because I couldn't wait any longer to surprise him. Inside the box I put a paper explaining what the year of dates entailed. He LOVED it!! 

Since it was practically January, I let him open the January envelope.  It is dinner at the local brewery and tickets to the movies to see Taken 3.  

I'll be sharing pictures from each date and what exactly we did each month on here and on Instagram.  Some dates are just simple and others are more extravagant (June is our honeymoon so that's our June date).
