Friday I’m in Love: Date Inspired by The Newlywed Game

Did you ever used to watch “The Newlywed Game” ?
Although I have never watched a full episode (only small clips on youtube – it was a little before my time. give me a break), I love the idea of it.


I can be pretty competitive so a game to showcase your listening skills and learn about your partner in the process is right up my ally. There have been some modern spins on the legendary game. I have watched them and secretly always wanted to be a contestant. I don’t know why but, it sounds like so much fun. I love getting to know others (especially my B) and this game really tests how well you listened and got to know them for exactly who they are and not how you perceive them.

B and I used to play the question game while we were dating and still do now but slightly different version. The question game is where you have think of questions (deep or shallow) to ask your spouse and he/she has to answer no matter what and then you have to answer. It has sparked many conversations for B and I. I really like being asked the questions because often it is a subject I have never even thought of. It helps you to learn a little bit about yourself too!

So when I saw a take home version of the Newlywed Game from the Dating Divas, I knew I had to give it a go. And I was so glad I did. This is another cost effective and highly interactive type date. This game could be played after dinner, in the park, in your car, anywhere really.


Dating Diva supplies questions and the questionnaire.  All you have to do is print!
Husbands out there looking for a simple yet sentimental date this is perfect for you! Playing this game + making her a dessert is money in the bank. You can thank me later.
This also doesn’t have to be a romantic thing. I think it would be fun to play with friends and siblings. It will test how deep your relationship is!

Confession… B and I have not had the chance to play the game yet, but we do plan on doing it this evening. I will let you know how it goes and what I learn!

What is on the agenda for your date night?


Friday I’m In Love: Summer Date Night Ideas

I live for the summer.
I live for those long summer evenings and the warm summer mornings. I live for the sun shinning and the bronzed skin. I live for the perfectly ripened avocados, mangos, peaches, huckleberries, etc. (the list goes on and on). But, most of all I live for summer love.


Summer date nights are different. You are more adventurous and one with nature. You want to soak up the last moments of sun that the evening has to offer. You let loose a little more and think in your head “so what it’s summer?”.  I have decided in honor of this amazing season I will post summer date night ideas every week to make this summer an unforgettable one.

B and I love games and one of the best two player games is yahtzee. So we grabbed a blanket and headed to a park a block away from our home to enjoy the sun and some competition. I also love Mojitos (virgin that is) so we decided to bring that too . The fresh mint and lime combination just scream summer to me.  Check back next week for the recipe.

Cheers to the weekend!
