Eater Egg Date

eastereggdate

Why do kids get to have all the fun when it comes to Easter egg activities? Grown-ups can enjoy a basket of eggs, too! In fact, why not incorporate a basket of eggs for date night? Here’s three ideas on how to do so.

Pop Quiz
Have a basket of eggs, filled with special treats. Make a list of questions about yourself, such as “What is my favorite vegetable?”, or “What year did I graduate high school”, or “What was my favorite childhood TV show?” Write your answers next to the question and hide your paper. Take turns asking your sweetheart questions about yourself. The right answer equals an egg of goodies. The person with the least amount of eggs at the end loses!

Scavenger Hunt
Decide on a date night activity, gift, or message you want to give your sweetheart. Scatter eggs around the house with hints on where to find the gift or what the date night will be. If you’re doing a message, do one word in each egg and let your sweetheart arrange the words.

Truth or Dare
Divide eggs in half and have each person fill their eggs with a truth or a dare. Mix up the eggs in a basket and take turns picking one. Whoever answers the most questions and does the most dares wins!

Bonus Idea: Fill It Up
Fill up their car with Easter eggs. If you can fill up the entire car, you’re my hero. But you can make smaller goals too, like filling the glove compartment, the backseat, or the trunk. Put a reason why you love them in each egg. It’s a great way to boost their morning commute!

5 Tools You Should Be Using

tools

There are five tools that you probably aren’t using right now, but should be.

Newspaper
If you’re looking for date night plans or ways to fill up your weekend, newspapers are the way to go. Not only that, but headlines give you some conversation topics, and the puzzles in the back can be a fun activity with a loved one. Plus the paper has comics. You can’t go wrong with comics.

Travel Guides
Pick up travel guides on foreign countries, different states or provinces, nearby cities, and your own city. Set a goal each month to visit someplace out of the ordinary. You’re never going to end up where you want to go accidentally. Plan. Plan one large trip a year, a day trip every three months, and half day trips in between.

Directory
Pick whatever medium suits you, whether it’s a copy of the Yellow Pages or Yelp.com. Keep a directory of services, shops, and restaurants in your area on hand. Use this resource for date night, a weekend out, or gift ideas.

Calendar
A calendar not only makes you organized, but it teaches you to prioritize and to be purposeful with your time. Take an hour or two each week to plan your schedule, with a goal in mind for each day. Don’t over-schedule, and remember to stay flexible; however, give each day a purpose. Pencil in date night, quiet time, nights out, and travel plans.

Dry Erase Board
A dry erase board is an incredibly good investment. In fact, you may want more than one. If you’re single and live alone, you can use it for scheduling out your week, planning projects, writing vocabulary words of foreign languages, inspirational quotes, or anything that motivates you. If you live with others, use it for loving messages, games, and date night or dinner plans.

Make Movie Night Magical

Ah, the cinema. The collaboration of hundreds of talents, ranging from filmography to acting, from costume to set design, from production to directing. Cast and crew spend months of long hours fulfilling their visions, hoping to tell the stories from their hearts. And now it has become a lifeless, effortless date night option. The shame!

Although dinner and a movie isn’t considered the most impressive of date night choices, it has a lot of creative possibilities. If you want to make movie night magical, you have to create the magic yourself!

The Comfort of Bitterness

Do you enjoy your bitterness? I know your knee just jerked and you replied, “No,” but I don’t think you thought about your answer hard enough. If we despised our bitterness, we would do everything we could to rid ourselves of it. But sometimes we don’t. Sometimes, we keep it nearby and on hand with no intentions of releasing it. The reasons for this aren’t valid, but they’re understandable.
