They went above and beyond with my simple request. For Christmas, they gave us a calendar that had dates filled out in each month for us to go out. My mom chose one day, and even an alternate date in case the first day didn't work out. Then, they gave us gift cards and cash to fund our date nights! My sister gave us gift cards to the movies, which included loyalty cups ($1 refills all year!) and loyalty t-shirts (free popcorn when we wear them to the show.) When we first started dating, we went to the movies ALL THE TIME. Since kids, we usually go to kid movies and watch adult movies at home on dvd.
Last month, it was awesome to go out to a delicious dinner at Stuart Anderson's (thanks to gift cards) and then go see Contraband (again, thanks to gift cards).
I think we have an awesome partnership marriage, but with the stress of jobs, business travel, 3 kids and a house -- we tend to focus on everything but us. This wonderful gift has forced us to focus on ourselves as a couple more regularly.
I was inspired to write this post after a PR pitch I received from K*Y and their limited edition K-Y Yours and Mine Date Night Pack that includes a voucher for $10 off movies for 2 from MovieFone. With the bonus of movie discounts, it helps you spend a fun night on the town and continue that focus on each other when you're back home again.
They were generous enough to offer another K-Y Yours and Mine Date Night Pack to one of my readers in anticipation of Valentine's Day.
