Why We Don't Have a Date Night...

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 20th Century Fox. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know how they say spouses need to have a date night to keep the romance alive?  Well, I agree.  But we don't have date night.  Ever.  Mostly because by the time we actually have a few minutes together we are both so wrung out that it's just easier to sit home and do nothing.  And because every time recently that we have tried to have a Date Night, it has turned out something like this:

Okay, okay. I admit, our Date Nights don't involve being chased down by hit men. Nor have we been shot at.  So far. Is that movie trailer hilarious or what!? I love the stripper pole thing!!

Date Night opens on April 9th and stars Tina Fey and Steve Carrell, both of whom I find to be extremely gifted comedians/actors. They play a bored suburban couple on their weekly dinner date and find themselves thrown into a night of intrigue: there’s breaking and entering, a car chase, a shootout and a showdown with an underworld boss at a strip club. Husband and wife come out of the adventure with some scratches and also with their ardor renewed. 

I guess this kind of experience would actually create some bonding moments, wouldn't it?  In a twist of irony, I think I will actually go see this Date Night Movie on opening weekend with Big Man. Wanna double date? It'll be fuuuuun!

Ah, you crack me up. I have one piece of advice to you. I understand your frustration with the whole date night thing, but here me now girlie (see me stepping on to soapbox) - while I know it is easier to NOT go on a date with Big Man, it is important. Sometimes it isn't what you do, but the fact that you show him how important he is that you WILL sacrifice and take him out...even if means YOU have to plan, YOU have to get the sitter, and sometimes YOU will have to pay. Some of my favorite dates were getting a drink from Sonic and "eye shopping" while we planned what we would do if we even had enough money to spend on whatever we wanted. Do you know what he would buy? Go on a date and find out. I mean it.
