Let's Talk Date Nights!

Hey y'all, I'm Ashley from Let's Get Bananas.  I am so excited Jess is letting me guest post today!  Today we are going to talk about date nights.  I'm a firm believer that date nights are super important.  It's only a matter of time before our little family grows (calm down, we are 3+ years out, no worries) so we need to enjoy all the time we have now.  My #1 favorite, go to date is dinner out at a restaurant.  Over time we've learned that is where we have our best conversations.  We're both super busy and have all sorts of things going on during the week, so having a chance to sit down at dinner with no distractions is the perfect thing for us.  I especially like to have a bottle glass of wine with my meal and just spend a couple hours chatting away over dinner/drinks.


Another one of our favorite dates is a relaxing weekend getaway.  It's amazing how much a quick trip can completely turn things around.  We've been to New Orleans (not super relaxing, but definitely a great city for a getaway), Fredericksburg and Canyon Falls lake.  All of these are perfect destinations for a short trip with lots of things to do.  Our everyday life is very organized/planned (we live off our calendars), so sometimes it's nice to just get away together and not have a single plan for the weekend.


What are your favorite date nights?  Don't forget to stop by and say hi - I love meeting new people!  Thanks Jess for letting me take over your blog today!

  3. I LOVE going away for the weekend . . . . even if it's only the hour-long drive to the coast. Any alone time with my honey outside of our home is special.

  5. I'm with Jordan...definitely choose bottle ;) But yes, date nights are super important and not to mention fun! How fun is it to be young and date your best friend all the time? We absolutely love our conversations over our favorite meal at our favorite place.

  7. Dinner with a bottle of wine is a must! AND we love weekend trips too. We just can't stop traveling!
    I also love trying to convince my hubs to "walk and talk" - walking while exercising on the trail. That doesn't always work. ;)

  8. Hubby and I do date night every Fri. It's typically dinner and drinks to unwind after the work week and maybe a movie or something relaxing. I agree it's very important to do date nights.
