One year of date nights.

For one of my (many) New Years resolutions, aka goals,  is to make a vow to set aside time every week for my relationship. Last year was a year of challenges and I wanted to make sure this year Jason & I made the effort to enjoy each others company in other environments than our living room. I was skeptical when suggesting the idea to Jason that he wouldn’t go for it, but to my delight, he was very into the idea. There were only 3 rules I wanted to attach to this resolution and they are as follows:

  1. We would plan for Thursday every week, but re-schedule as needed.
  2. Jason & I would alternate on picking the evenings plans.
  3. The activity could be anything except sitting on the couch in our living room and watching TV.

Easy enough, right? We will see. Starting out slow and going out for a meal to focus on having a good conversation was the initial, but the eventual goal is to do more things we wouldn’t normally do. Be adventurous.

So far we have been on 3 dates and tonight is our 4th. I will do a brief run through on the first three dates on this post and then post weekly on further outings. This could be boring or it could be genius, who knows? What I do know is I have this blog and this will focus me on posting more regularly. Even if I assume people really don’t care what I’m doing enough to actually read a personal online diary.

Date 1: We had a late dinner at a restaurant we used to frequent because before we lived together this restaurant was the mid-way point between both our apartments.

Date 2: Steakhouse in our local area. We had both been craving steak so we decided to splurge. This place is Tiki themed and has a giant fish tank in the center of the dining room which ended up inspiring us.


Date 3: We went to a chain restaurant that we had a gift card that was given to us during the holidays. Might as well be thrifty date night! We also incorporated a nice long walk around the neighborhood of the restaurant after dinner. This helped us spend some quiet time together while getting in some very needed steps.Date 4: Next post…
