Top 10 Date Night Ideas

By Beth Anne Ballance |

April 2012 date night to the Angus Barn for dinner.

RAWR, baby!

Can we talk about my total hottie for a husband for a moment?  He is so devilishly handsome with his blue eyes and Southern boy facial scruff that sends me swooning in my petticoats.  I have loved him for almost a decade and he’s the only one I let see me in my mouth gaurd at night.  In short, I did a fine piece of magic convincing him to tie the knot with me and then I still liked him so much that we had a baby two years ago.

So who’s got two thumbs and a fine piece of man-meat by her side for the next fifty years?  This girl.

We have a few “rules” in our marriage, like always having cinnamon rolls in the fridge and never saying “shut up” and having regular date nights.  It started pretty early on into parenthood, thanks to having my parents close by as babysitters - sometimes it’s just grabbing a milkshake for a quick drive through town, other times it’s a full-on gussied-up affair with high heels and a movie to follow.  It all depends on our schedule and budget for the month, but point is that we do it.

So here are some of our favorite ideas for keeping a marriage spicy and cheesy and marinated.  Whoops, I meant committed.
