Well folks, this is it, the last day of June. It’s also the last Friday of the month, and therefore the last Friday post for our Revive Date Night series.
When I first started thinking about this series I just thought it would be a fun way to commemorate my 10 year anniversary this month. I thought that my husband and I were pretty good about having fairly regular date nights but I figured this might help some other people… then I realized how much I truly needed this. I think that in one way or another a lot of us have fallen into a date night rut. Maybe we don’t have the time, the energy, the money, a babysitter, or a plan. I realized this month what my problem was–making date night a priority.
I realized it earlier this month when our scheduled date night came around (on a Saturday night that week) and I was exhausted and stressed about a blog deadline. The “old me” would have probably just figured we could wait until next week, but I knew I couldn’t let that happen now, not when I was co-hosting a blog series about making date night a priority! So I sent the hubby out for take out and we watched some Netflix while we enjoyed at late dinner after the kiddos went to bed. Some of you might think that’s not a big deal or doesn’t qualify as a date, but for us, nights of just relaxing at home and watching a show together are extremely rare these days. And that simple time spent together was just what we needed that week!
I also realized I needed to work on my priorities with my relationship last week when we went to Vegas for a little anniversary getaway. My laptop accidentally got left at home and for about 30 minutes I thought it was the end of the world. It ended up being the best thing that could have happened to me that weekend (you can read more about that here).
And so I’m going to continue to make date night a priority and think of fun ways to step out of our routine and try new things, and I hope that you’ll join me! Please continue to use #ReviveDateNight on Instagram so I can see what you and your sweetheart are up to! Whether you’re dressing to the nines for a fancy dinner or staying comfortable while exploring your own town.
Speaking of comfortable, I’ve raved before about how comfortable the clothing from PinkBlush is and this top is no exception. Super flowy and comfortable, this Ivory Cuffed Sleeve Tunic is so perfect for looking pulled together in the hot summer without melting into a puddle. I’d been looking for an oversized white tee that I could dress up or dress down and this lovely number fit the bill.
