Pop Pop Pop Date
Take your husband to a movie rental store or stop by a Redbox or Blockbuster Express station and have your husband pick out a movie. Or select one of his favorites from your home collection. Pop some popcorn, or some other movie-friendly snack food, light a few candles, dim the lights, pop in the movie, and cuddle together on the couch. Who cares if it’s the middle of the week? Make time to spend time together.
Variation: Head to a video store and pick out a movie for your husband while he picks out a movie for you. Make it a point to watch both movies this week and discuss why you picked out the movies you did. Introduce your husband to something new, and allow him to introduce you to something new. Be open and give each other a chance. Be sure to cuddle! That’s key! :o)
