  • We do, but its not a set night. About once a month we have dinner and drinks. Actually, its been a busy month. We've been out every wkend for the past 3 weeks. Lots of friends birthdays and such. The next month is going to be very quiet, though.

  • We do a date night once a week. Every Saturday, and we alternate every other Sat. whose turn it is to choose our activity. If it is your turn and you choose to stay home, you have to choose an activity to do (watch movies, play board games, etc.) and also you can not choose to do the same thing twice (example - last week was his turn. He chose to stay home and have a movie night. On his next turn, he can not choose to do it again.) This Saturday (tomorrow) is my choice and we will be going out to the Pizza Parlor and playing arcade games :) A little mix up from just ordering in. Nothing too big or pricey.

  • I actually get a date night tonight! We rarely get a date night, because we have three little ones and only one person willing to babysit for free. We try not to take advantage of her. We talk about paying a babysitter once a month so we can go out, but it's just so expensive! We'd have to have an extra $100 to blow on an evening out (babysitter + inexpensive dinner)... and we normally don't.

  • My Husband and I have recently started making date nights a priority in our lives. We have two boys. They are 15 months and 3 months. We have a few close friends that love to babysit for us. If we don't have a lot of money we go somewhere cheap to eat and then go to the park or stroll the mall. Nothing too fancy. It's nice to get away and have time to really talk. I think every couple should make it a priority!
