Pinterest Project of the Week - date jar

Saturday, May 25, 2013
This one has been on my to-do list for a while. Andrew and I had a free night (which are relatively few and far between) and we started the usual conversation of "what do you want to do?," "I don't know what do you want to do?"...and on and get the picture.

So to fix that problem in the future we sat down and made a list of all the things we could do together and how we could turn normal evenings into a fun "date night." We listed all sorts of things like going out for ice cream, to making homemade pizza, etc...some of which we came up with ourselves and some of which we pulled from ideas on the internet.

Only rule is that it requires little planning and it is something we can do with Perry...we made a whole other list of things we want to do on our real date nights ( child in tow).

Then we got a jar (which was readily sitting around after Perry's dedication party) and some craft sticks and wrote each idea onto a stick. You will notice there is one of two colors painted at the top...some of the items are best done during the day (light blue) and others are more evening appropriate activities (dark blue).

I also talked to Andrew about this being a fun thing to do with Perry as he gets bigger (e.g. jar of things to do on summer vacation, etc).

So more floundering trying to figure out what to do. Next time one of us asks "what do you want to do?" the answer can be "let's draw a stick from the jar and find out."  : )
