This week one of my favorite groups gathered together after a short break. We had a pinterest party. We made some crafts inspired by pinterest. One of those crafts were jars that could be a date night jar, family nights or whatever you wanted it to be. Some ladies who home school did a field trip jar.
The idea is you write on the craft sticks (with a sharpie marker) some ideas for your specific jar.
Why make a jar? Well have you ever had a conversation that goes something like this..........What do you want to do?
The other person says, I don't care, what do you want to do?
Well I have- many times. Often times with my spouse. I know there are times when I have to make decisions all day long and I don't want to make one more decision- even it is where are we going to eat dinner. So enter in my date night jar and I don't have to have that conversation when deciding on a date destination.
Some of my ideas were ............
- picnic at the Ocoee Center
- have dessert and go to a bookstore
- go see the penguins (at the Tennessee Aquarium)
- dinner and a movie
- watch a UT sporting event
- I also put some specific restaurants we like
On a side note if you are married and not going on dates with your spouse, why not? Let me encourage you to make dating your spouse a priority. I promise it is an investment worth making!
