Project 52: Bucket List

First, I want to welcome all the new couples joining us for Project 52: Date Nights! And thanks everyone for telling your friends and family about this great cause… improving our relationships with the one we love. If you are joining Project 52: Date Nights, please view some of our past dates and meet other couples who are participating by clicking at the linking party after each post. Then please link your date each week. I sincerely love reading about your dates. I visit each link and comment on your blogs. And if you have a private blog or simply don’t have one, then comment and tell us about your dates each week. Or even email me tiffany {at} simplymodernmom {dot} com. I am so inspired by all of your stories.

Moving on. About our date. Boy, am I relieved that it is Nathan’s month to plan it. It is one less thing for me to worry about this month. I just show up. Great. Plus I was afraid Nathan might get sick my dates because they were let’s-talk-about-this dates. You know guys. They don’t always want to talk. Lesson #1: Taking turns planning dates allow each person to plan activities they enjoy doing.

Nathan thought the bucket list idea might be fun. Not so much thinking about when we’ll kick the bucket. But more on the idea of discussing our dreams and planning experiences. Few things on the list we all ready knew about each other. Others were new. Lesson #2: Even though we have been together for over 6 years, we still had new things to learn about each other.

By looking at the pictures of our bucket lists, did you learn something about us? He is logical. I am creative. We work well together with that. Lesson #3: We don’t have to be exactly the same to be good together. In fact, we use our differences to strengthen each other.

Nathan said: I chose the easy route this week with a date from Tiffany’s date ideas list. I thought this would be a good way for me to ease into the date planning. It wasn’t bad at all! It was actually kinda fun to spruce up the house, get everything clean and orderly making it a little more special than just another night around the house. It was fun to get to know each other better and find out what values and experiences we want before, you know, we kick the bucket.

Now time for you to link up your date. Read the rules below. And if you link up and don’t see your link on there, refresh the page. If it is still not there, try it again. If it gets on there twice by accident, I can always delete the second one. Want to join Project 52: Date Night? That’s great! Start anytime. Go here for details about the project and print the pledge.

When you link up, please remember…

  • Keep it clean and family friendly. This is a family friendly site. Anything inappropriate will be deleted.
  • It needs to be a date. Not your latest projects or pictures of your beautiful children. I do love reading about your projects and learning about your family. But this linky is for date nights and date nights only. It is for us to exchange date night ideas.
  • Link to a specific blog post about your date that week. Don’t just link to your site’s home page. It needs to be the direct link to the post. Anything not directly linked to the post will be deleted.
  • Link back to Simply Modern Mom or put the Project 52: Date Nights button on your site. It’s common courtesy. Please be nice.

    What a great date night idea! It would be fun to talk about what my husband and I want to do in the future. I am definitely going to put this one down as a date for us. I’m still trying to convince my husband to plan dates, but hopefully once we get going, he’ll get more adventuresome. I’m not going to let that stop us though!

    We tried your idea of digging out our high school year books from your Bullet List on TMH. I have not laughed that hard in a long time….
    Then that led to us digging out my box of old love notes(he was perplexed at why I still had them).
    Then we laughed some more…
    Thanks for the great idea Tiffany! Your doing a great job.

    This weekly date night is such a good idea. My husband and I are in our early 60’s, and our last child has moved out. We decided to have a date night each week, where hopefully we would get out of the house together. It doesn’t always work like that but we have noticed a renewed closeness since we’re on our own again. A dear friend told us a long time ago to always keep the main relationship in our marriage strong – he said that kids come into and out of your marriage and home, but ultimately it’s you and your spouse that count. We’ve been married for 41 years this year and he still makes my heart beat a little bit faster when we’re together.Good luck with your project. It’s a really important one.

    I love this idea. DH and I play this all the time. The other one that we do is “what would you do if you won the lottery?”, and “What would your dream home look like?”
