Marriage.  Happily Ever After. Forever. Commitment. His + Hers.  Love. Romance. Ahhh yes, all of those things seem so amazingly easy the first couple of years of a committed relationship right?  Then you add LIFE.  And by life I mean, a career, a home, children, health issues, debt, LIFE! Sure all of those things can bring happiness but some of those also bring stress.  I don't know about you but when I am stressed the last thing on my mind a something romantic!  Thankfully, after 11 years of marriage I feel like Jeremy and I have been through the ringer of stressful situations and through it all we always made sure we had some time to try something new and enjoy our date nights.

Our most recent Date Night included dinner out at a fast food joint while taking a break from Christmas shopping for the kids and then coming home to quickly wrap all those presents before pick up time!  Oh so romantic but guess what - we did find a way to spice things up and have a great evening together.  Sure, parenthood changes a lot of things but it doesn't have to change everything...if you know what I mean!

I decided to make a Christmas Cocktail for Jeremy and I to enjoy while we listened to some Christmas music and wrapped presents.  It gave us time to enjoy an adult drink for once and made our date night around tape, wrapping paper and children's toys exciting!

Do you know what I find interesting about adult time?  The amount that you can get done in just hours with out the little feet following you around the store or house.  We cherish our wife and husband time together with out the kiddos and make sure we take full advantage of anytime we have!

  6. We do forget about our spouses unfortunately sometimes when the kids are involved. We used to make it a priority that Sunday was "our" day but then LIFE took over and we're lucky if we get a day out of a month to be together. :)

  21. That drink looks right up my alley! My sweet tooth loves candy cane flavored anything. We haven't been making date night a priority AT ALL, so it's time to change that. I do love keeping date night at home, though, so we don't need a sitter.

    But I'll need a nap first, or a drink might knock me right out!
