Big Night In

Since Brett and I are saving our pennies for bigger and better things, it's been a little while since we've been able to have a date night. Lucky for us, we get to spend a lot of time together, but nothing beats doing something special with your someone special. Last night we decided to go on a date, right in the comfort of our living room!

We put on some music, opened a bottle of wine, cooked a wonderful meal, and had a nice romantic candle lit dinner together (consisting of gourmet burgers and mac n' cheese - YUM), followed by a dessert of fresh fruit and some Mad Men on Netflix. That's a pretty amazing date in my book!

Our amazing spread!

My awesome burger, topped with cheese, ketchup, mayonnaise, avocado, spinach, and tomato. Drool.

It's great to take the time out of our lives to have some 1-on-1 time and really appreciate one another.

Have you ever had a date night in your own home? Share your stories in the comments! :)


  1. Sounds like a pretty amazing date to me!

    Feeling inspired to take a trip to Trader Joe's or the packie on the way home to pick up a bottle of wine for tonight!

    1. Nothing better than a nice glass of wine after a long day!
