Raise your hand if you struggle getting out for date nights! I expect the hand of pretty much every parent to be up right about now. I know both my hands are up, even now that we have plenty of babysitters at our disposal. It's still totally hard and, sometimes, just not worth it!
Nate and I often get into the rut of having date night be the same thing over and over again - a movie after Caleb goes to bed. Although that's all well and good, I wanted to shake things up a little bit. I planned out a movie date night that goes above and beyond simply sitting on our tooshes and watching a movie.
I entitled our date night (because every date night needs a title) Sweet and Spicy!
Firstly we both got to pick out what movie we wanted to watch. It should come as no surprise that we both picked out our favorite movies. The "sweet" choice was chosen by me - While You Were Sleeping - and the "spicy" choice was chosen by Nate - The Bourne Identity.
Since we get up early with Caleb, Nate and I don't like watching two movies a night so how do we choose which to watch? A game, of course! I created a little Newlywed Game for the two of us to see which of us knows the other better. The rules are simple. We each get a copy of the game. We fill out our answers and the answer we think our spouse will give. Whichever of us has correctly figured out what the other will say most wins and that's the movie that's watched! (Nate won. No, I'm not bitter)
Have you all heard about the ALL NEW Fruit and Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread from Smucker's??? I was a little hesitant at first but, the moment I put some in my mouth, I fell in love! It was the perfect combination of sweet (naturally sweetened by honey so it's better for you!) and spicy (but not toooo spicy!). After this jar is done I'm going back to Walmart to try all the other new Fruit and Honey flavors Smucker's recently released!
Since we were going the better for you route with the cream cheese spread I had to go with a nutritious cracker too! I love that Wasa Crispbread is Non-GMO Project verified, all natural, high in fiber, AND has the Whole Grains Counsel seal! I love that it's a great low calorie crunchy snack that I can munch on instead of chips!
