Dating made easy

Hello! ::waves to new followers::
It's monday, which sucks. But I have a Friday-approved post for you guys today. Which is awesome.
Remember in my anniversary post a few weeks ago, I talked about the "12 dates" present that is ever so popular on Pinterest?
Well I wanted to share with you the dates I planned in case any other Chicago area bloggers needed some inspiration. (I'm lookin' at you Miss. Steph from Bourbon & Glitter) :)
I started it off with September, our anniversary month and planned 1 thing for us to do each month through August 2013.
September: Date night to P.F. Changs
October: Local Pumpkin Patch (Including haunted corn maze and midnight hayride
November: Comedy Club (I didn't pick a specific show because I didn't know what our schedule would look like, but it's in Joliet, IL)
Decemeber: Ice Skating downtown by The Bean
January: How I Met Your Mother marathon day (I just bought a combo pack of seasons 1 & 2 and we will hang out at home all day nomming and watching tv!)
February: Bowling at a local place
March: Movie date at Hollywood Palms in Naperville, IL.  It's a cool place where you eat dinner in the theater and the seats are la-z-y boys. Wanna talk about awesome??
April: Mini-golfing (since he likes to golf and I refuse to participate in the world's most boring sport the real thing.
May: Navy Pier (emphasis on the ferris wheel ride. It feels tourist-y, but still fun for a native)
June: Dave & Busters in Orland Park-- Dinner and an arcade? It's (one of) a grown man's dreams;)
July: Ice cream date to Coldstone Creamery
August: Chicago White Sox Game
Who doesn't love a pre-planned date night?!
Aaaaaaand you should all head over and enter in the group giveaway on For Love of A Cupcake! You might see a familiar face over there;)
Happy Monday, Sweet Ladies!


  1. new follower here :) I love your blog, and all of your dating ideas are so awesome! I will probably have to try some of them for sure :-P please come check out my blog and follow along if you like what you see :):)

  2. These are awesome ideas!! You just knew I'd be over here to stalk them :) Guilty! I'm doing that Hollywood Palms thing for sure. The Showplace Icon downtown is similar, but the chairs sound comfier at this Palms place. The Dave & Busters and pumpkin patch ideas are totally ones I'm stealing too!

  3. I've always loved this idea! It's such a great way to share some special times ;)
