Continue - The - Courtship Night (At Home) -- Go Fly A Kite!


Something I noticed in my town that doesn't get much attention paid to it anymore is the local Hobby Shop.'s always kite flying season, so for today's stuck-at-home date idea, how about making kites together? Then take them out tomorrow with the kids or grand-kids and fly them. They also make awesome gifts. All the supplies should be available at your local hobby shop.

If kites don't suit your fancy, check out some of the other cheap and cool things they have there and build something fun together. You're not just building a craft project, you're building memories that will last an eternity.

Continue - The - Courtship Night (At Home) -- Intimate TRADITION!!

Happy Continue-The-Courtship Night!

One of the cool things about being married: you can make it any way you want it.

I know there are a few months in the year where there are no federal holidays. Why not make up your own?

For tonight's date idea, create your own national holiday as husband and wife.

Pick a month in the year to celebrate that day. Plan together what you want it to be about. It could be National Sock Day, or national Traditional Marriage Day, or National Pizza Day, National Sleep-In Day, or Finnish History Day - or whatever ancestral ethnicity you most identify with, or something to reflect on a significant religious event like the Second Coming. You decide!

Write down together what day it will be. Will you take time off? How will it be celebrated? What kinds of foods will you celebrate with? Will there be costumes? Decorations? Music? Songs? Special kinds of worship? Gift exchange? Service project? Plan whatever you want.

Special family traditions are an excellent way to tie you closer together.

CTC Night (At Home) -- Need A Sitter?

Happy Continue The Courtship Night

Tonight's date idea is courtesy of WWW.Six Sister's Stuff.Com:


If you have kids, offer to watch a friend's kids while they head out on a date and then trade them the following weekend. If you don't have kids, watch some kid movies, play with Play Doh, and eat chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. Don't have any friends with kids? You could always try dog-sitting! You'd be surprised how many people would love someone to watch their dog and/take it out for a walk.

Continue-The-Courtship Night (At Home) -- Chocolate!

Happy Continue The Courtship Night!

This idea is courtesy of "The Dating Divas" who also had some other wonderful ideas. The way to a woman's heart is through her...chocolate?

This one will cost about $20, but well worth it.

Have a chocolate tasting night:

Go to your local supermarket and/or health food store and purchase 10 to 20 bars (one of each) of the most "gourmet" or exotic looking chocolate they have. Be sure to pick something you've never tried before.

Make up a simple grid chart showing type, look, touch, sound, smell and taste. Share your findings with your eternal lover.

You can do the free printables at the Dating Diva website, or just make your own.

And, it can all be done at home - but be sure it's just the two of you.
