August Date Nights!

We are still going strong with our weekly date nights and we love it! Life gets busy and hectic and just crazy with a newborn (I'm sure this is only the beginning!) so this is a great chance for us to just be husband and wife, Trevor and Jillian, party of 2! And I truly believe every couple needs that! You have to continue to date your spouse!!

Again, none of our dates are crazy expensive or elaborate by any means, it's just a chance for us to have built in quality time that is intentional!

Each week we trade off who is going to plan the date for that week, so it doesn't always fall on the guy. You can check out July's dates from a few posts back!  

1st Week: when we were in Michigan we went blueberry picking, so I thought it would be neat to do something with those delicious blueberries! So we made blueberry cobbler (thank you Linda for the recipe)! We made the cobbler, then stuck it in the oven for 40 minutes. While we were waiting for the cobbler to bake we gave each other great back massages! Then when the timer went off, we enjoyed our delicious dessert with some vanilla ice cream!

2nd Week: we had a water balloon fight in our back yard! Thanks Julie for the idea! 

3rd Week: we had a pong, darts and Wahoo! I really thought I had the upper hand because I almost always beat Trevor in ping pong and in Wahoo...but it was a beat down! Trevor won every "sport"!

Week 4: we went to Walmart and bought a new game. This was a little challenging because most games require more than 2 people, but we found one! We bought mancala! We played the adult version...strip mancala...yep, I'm blushing even typing that! Just tryin' to be real! You gotta have fun in marriage! 

Well, there ya have it! August is in the books! And you can't use $ as an excuse! We spent no money on week 1 (we already had all the ingredients!), week 2 I spent $3.99 on water balloons, week 3 was free (we already had all of those activities), and we spend less than $10 on mancala for week 4! 

Happy dating!!
