That's a lot of date nights

I have a friend who recently cooked every recipe in the June issue of Bon Appetit.  It was so fun to follow along, I started looking for a list of things I could make a project out of. While looking through my computer files, I saw a PDF I'd downloaded from the lovely Hallie Lord's site of 52 simple stay-at-home date night ideas. I decided to make a project out of doing every one. I plan on grouping them so we do several each week. If you'd like to download the PDF as well, instructions are here on Hallie's site.

We decided to start out slow, with a simple, laid back date night. We Play(ed) a board game (#9) and Thomas Bartend(ed) (#31). I suppose cribbage is technically a card game, not a board game, but it's the spirit that counts, right? (Already bending the rules on the first day. Oops.) If you're looking for something to do on a Friday night, drunk cribbage isn't too bad.

I couldn't think of much to write for this one, but just you wait. Not all of these date night posts are going to be boring - I have PLANS. 

(Thomas is now reconsidering agreeing into this project.)


  1. This is a great idea for a project!

    I'm assuming there will be no nude photos, right? *eyebrow raise*

  2. Nice that you have a plan. I hope you continue to keep us updated.

  3. I am excited about reading all of this!

  4. This sounds like a good plan, but you did neglect to mention that your friend's project drove her insane and into the arms of 30 days of meat.
