[ad] I'm a girl who loves a good manicure so I love to save time and money by doing my nails myself at home. Between constantly typing on my computer, cleaning the house, and chasing a toddler my nails really taking a beating. Because of this, my “manicures” tend to last me maybe 24 hours if I’m lucky. At that point, I was doing my nails on the daily and ain’t no mama got time for that! This week I'm sharing my love for @cndworld and my top tips for getting a flawless manicure from the comfort of your own home! #CNDVINYLUXatRA #sponsored •

A Husband Approved Date Night

By Posted on 0 175 views

Date Night Darts | High Heels & Combat Boots

As a woman, I love a great date night. In my perfect world, it would include a nice dinner, and maybe a museum visit. Even as I type this, I can see my hubby looking away and hiding a little eye roll! Maybe this is why it’s tough to get most couples (our male half) to commit to a date night. Let’s face it, for most couples there are some hurdles:

  1. What will it cost
  2. Will it be fun for both of you
  3. Babysitters
  4. There are chores to do

Now, if I said to my husband – “hey, I have Sharks tickets for our date night” there would be a foot race to the car! He may even be down the road before he realized I was still locking the back door & not in the car with him.

I can’t offer you a free babysitter, or Sharks tickets – but I can give you a “man approved” date night that’s inexpensive and easy to pull off.  I’m calling it “Date Night Darts”.

Here is what you need to pull it off:
  • Dart Board – $14.99
  • Sharpie or other permanent marker
  • Refreshments (we like some cold brews)
  • Music
  • Score Sheet : pad & paper or iphone app
How it works
  • Mark the dart board with all sorts of things to win that are easy to do on the spot. You can get some snacks to add on here that you know your hubby will enjoy to play for. Some ideas are:
    • Kiss
    • Back Rub
    • Drink
    • Tell a secret
    • Sing a song lyric
    • I.O.U (winner picks)
    • Peanuts
    • Snickers Bar
  • Set the tone with a rockin’ playlist, drinks and snacks. We like the “Train” radio station from Apple radio, but use whatever you want. Just make sure it’s a bit of a party environment.
  • Play darts! Keep score 2 ways. First, completing the tasks on the dart board. i.e.: if he lands a dart on the “kiss me” – then pucker up. You’ll also keep regular score on the pad of paper or download a free app. Here is a quick scoring guide.

Whoever makes it to 300 points first, wins. But really, you both win. This entire date night is under $25 – and promises hours of fun. If you don’t want to mark up your dart board permanently, just buy some removable stickers to write on.

If you enjoyed this free date night, you might want to check out our blog at Date Box Club! We’re crafting together creative dates that bring couples closer together.
