Not only can planning for date night be stressful with trying to figure out where to go and what to do, but also the actual date itself can be expensive! There are only so many times that you can go to dinner and a movie before you realize just how inflated the prices are compared to the value of what you are getting ($8 for some popcorn...I think I’ll pass). My boyfriend, Matt and I love beating “the system” and have set out to make our date nights more affordable during our 365 Days of Dates Challenge. If you are interested in saving some cash while not skimping on the perks of an awesome date night, make sure to incorporate these 4 budget date ideas into your weekly date nights:

1. Adventure Planning Date

This is a great alternative to dinner and a movie! This date calls for preparing dinner at home (try grocery shopping and cooking dinner together). After dinner is cooked and the table is set, turn on a little bit of music and start verbally planning your next adventure. First establish a continent, then country, city and finally a timeframe. Your adventure doesn’t have to be expensive; it could be to a neighboring city or state that you’ve never been to. Click here to see how we planned during our Adventure Planning Date!

OshKosh Imagine Spring Syle

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Has Spring sprung where you are? We're definitely getting more outside time over here. It's nice to watch V play and explore in the backyard. Just this past week, she found several tiny little purple flowers. She discovered her shadow and tried to catch it. She frantically chased bubbles. She did it all in pretty dresses from OshKosh B'Gosh.

{DIY} Color It New for a Fresh New Look

I was in the middle of a DIY shoe refashion going horribly wrong when I was asked to review actress Kristina Anapau's Color It New aerosolized colorant. To say the least, I was excited and really open to the easy way. I moved my project to the dark side of the closet and focused my attention on this quick, instant gratification project instead.
