Date Nights

Project 52: Date Nights logo

With a six year old, a three year old, and 4 month old twins, life has become increasingly busy. Colby & I have never really been big on date nights, mostly because we’re cheap and we don’t want to burden anyone with our kids. We do a pretty good job at spending time together in the evenings just watching TV and stuff, but lately I’ve felt like we owe it to ourselves to do a little something more for our relationship. I came across this blog post from Simply Modern Mom called Project 52. Basically the idea is to date your spouse every week and to do most things for cheap/free at home after the kids go to bed. PERFECT!

And even though Colby may think I’m silly, I decided that we’re gonna do it! (I’m sure he is reading this blog post and thinking, “What the … ? This is the first I'm hearing about this!” Well, get over it, honey. I do what I want. :P ) And I plan to blog about all our dates cuz as he recently pointed out, this blog has become like our family’s online journal. It is awesome to be able to go back through the last couple years to see where we were and what we were doing and to remember all the fun times we’ve had as a family and with our children. Plus as both my mom AND my dad pointed out to me, all our recent posts have been about Jacob & Owen. So I guess I need to start blogging about more than just the twins!
