There are so many great date ideas for busy moms to date their husbands. I have one that I hope is unique for you!
GO BACK IN TIME!
Recreate the first date you and your husband went on. This time there will not be any awkward or shy moments. This is not to replace the memory of that first date but instead, look back at the beginning and remember all of those moments when you felt those butterflies or those nerves swimming around in your stomach. This is to remember the beginning and to maybe take the opportunity during or after the date to just go over some of your favorite memories while dating throughout how long it has been since that very first one.
My husband and I are high school sweethearts. We first started dating when we were 17 years old and are now married and will both be 25 this July. I remember our first date very clearly and cannot wait to recreate the first date with my husband.
We went and saw the movie Zathura. It is like a space themed Jumanji movie. I was super embarrassed because when I get nervous, I get really bad stomach cramps. He was holding my hand throughout the movie, and I am pretty sure he could tell I was super uncomfortable. Thank goodness he loves me anyway! We ate popcorn, shared a soda (wow, we shared even then!), and enjoyed the movie together. On the way dropping him off at home, I was even more embarrassed when I accidentally forgot to get out of “right hand must exit” lane and ended up going straight and running over median/island curb thing that separates the lanes. Oh my gosh, seriously embarrassing! I promise I am a better driver now.
Even to this day, our favorite date night when we have the rare opportunity to go out, is still to go out to eat for dinner, see a movie, and share popcorn and soda! I know it is not the healthiest thing, but it is our treat to ourselves. We love that time together!
My plans to recreate our first date will be done at home during my husband’s next five days off, somewhere between February 22-February 26. I would love to do it for Valentine’s Day, but we will both be in the hospital, as I am having my c-section for our third child on February 13. We will rent the movie Zathura, or buy it if no one is renting it, and sit at home with some popcorn and a soda, as well as reminisce about the “old days” from when we were younger, before we were married, and before kids.
Let me also apologize that this post is not as picture filled as I had hoped. I have been running into many issues here at the end of my pregnancy that has prevented me from making this basic post into a really great post. I really wanted to include pictures of us at 17 years of age when we were first starting to date to help catch the “think about the memories after all this time” theme of this post, but I just have not been able to get into the closet to grab my disc of pictures that has all the pictures from before 2009 on it. I hope you get the idea anyway!
