As I’ve been working on my blogging, again I realized that I don’t have a ton of marriage posts. While brainstorming I came up with a great idea. Each month, I’m going to share 3 date night ideas along the same theme– a home date, a fun date, and a frugal date. That way, you can pick one depending on your circumstances each month.

For May 2014, the theme is baseball.


For a frugal date (with or without kids), go to a baseball or softball game. Somewhere there is a softball or baseball league playing a game at the ballpark. Grab a few dogs, some nachos & drinks at a gas station or convenience store to get the full baseball experience on a budget. You could also bring your dinner from home or even grill at the ball park of you have one of those tiny propane grills. Don’t forget your gloves and a softball to get a little post-dinner exercise in 🙂


At Home

If you can get MLB games at your house, find out the schedule & arrange to watch a game. No games for you? Watch a baseball themed movie instead. Field of Dreams, Mr. Baseball & Major League come to mind.

For lunch or dinner, make some hot dogs and nachos. Does that not appeal to you? Make some other food that you would indulge in at a ball game. If you can find some, pick up a package of cracker jacks.

If your date night is after the kiddos go to bed and it’s warm in your neck of the woods, you could put on the spotlights and play a nighttime game of catch, too. Especially if you prefer a more active date than sitting in front of the TV.

If you are feeling crafty, you could also make the bra & short set, pictured above.  You need white shorts & a bra and a red fabric marker, sharpie or fabric paint (puffy or otherwise).  I mean, if *I* can do it…

For Fun

Go to a professional class baseball game. We have a Frontier League team in our town. A few hours away, is a bigger league and by driving to Detroit, we could watch the Tigers.

If your kids are older, you might even be able to get away for an overnight date! Either way, see if there is a stadium nearby and buy a pair of tickets. If this is a special trip for you, budget extra money for food and souvenirs. Don’t forget your camera and ask someone to take a picture of both of you!



Which date night idea are you more likely to use this month?
