Date Night: Coffee & Ceramics

Hubby and I fit in a date night on Friday. Not wanting to be too far from home (the kids), we made sure to stay on base. Dates are few and far between for us so it doesn't take much to make us happy. Not having three children dominating our conversation and attention is really all that matters.


If our date had to have a theme it would be Coffee & Ceramics. Our first stop, iced coffees at the base coffee shop. Yum! Definitely my guilty pleasure. Next, conversation. How do you jump start a conversation with someone you know everything about? And doesn't focus on kids or work? Google "What If" questions and ask him "Questions to ask your boyfriend when your bored". Yikes, all I can say is those questions might get a gal stalker status. My advice for all single ladies...stick to the basics. Likes, dislikes, hopes, dreams, 5 year plan...all good questions. Do you love your ex-girlfriend? Not so much...

Last stop, base hobby shop to find something to paint. We decided on this little guy. He will be sitting on our kitchen counter collecting change for the next seven months. When hubby gets back we are spending the money on a date night. Yay! Seven months of saving should mean a really great date. Of course, in true Marine style the pig has to 'represent'. And what better way but with a USMC tattoo!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is a fun date night idea. We had a plaster place in the mall & you could paint the stuff, but it closed down. My daughter has been there for b-day parties.

    1. Can't believe my husband agreed to go. Luckily, we were the only ones and the staff member was a retired Marine who wanted to talk shop. It made the experience more manly for the hubby!

  3. Sounds like a fun date night! I love the idea of asking one another fun questions to change up the conversation a bit.

  4. Date nights are always much appreciated when you have kids! Hubby and I got a few hours away from our 3 today and went 4-wheeler riding. It was so nice to have some alone time & to take in the beauty of nature :)

    1. Angie, 4-wheeling sounds way more fun than ceramics. What I wouldn't give for that 'date night'.
