Date night you all! Let’s get old school and go to the drive in! Oh but wait, you can’t find a babysitter and your tiny-tots are a bit young to leave on their own? Never fear! Creative minds are near!! (Ok that was REALLY nerdy)
We got our hands on a projector (usually you can check one out from your school, library, or church) and some speakers. Plugged them in to our laptop, and projected a Redbox movie right on to our garage door. Badaboom badabing simple date night here we come!!! I’ve got to tell you though, investing in a projector and speakers wouldn’t be a bad idea either! If you’re brave, rent it out to friends/acquaintances and you can earn a little cash to pay for it. Then a little more for a private concession stand. Win Win!
A couple of sleeping bags, some hot chocolate, popcorn, a licorice vine or two and we were pretty cozy. I was also able to keep an eagle eye on my sweet treasures by using a baby monitor with a camera. Seriously you all, there are some investments that are totally worth it, baby monitor with camera? GOOD investment!!!!! We had our “Drive-in” date after the kiddos fell asleep, and although we were 100 or so feet away from them at all times, it still felt like a legitimate date night! It was also pretty awesome to be able to watch something that neither one of us had seen before, and it added a little bit more to the believability. A note of caution though, be sure you trust your date with all your heart if you send them off to pick the movie!!!
All in all though, it was fun to spend the time together, and that is what makes it a great date!
