Happy Thursday! I am back today with a fun post our recent Date Night In experience. I’ve been meaning to get this post up a lot sooner, but like our actual plans for date nights, it got put on the back burner! Summer has been pretty hectic between trips, kids sports activities, BBQs…basically the usual summer things! So, my husband and I have not gotten to have many date nights whether it is out and about or at home! Therefore, I was so excited to spend a few hours on our Minute to Win It Date Night In Box! This is our second Date Night In Box (details on our first box here) and we really love them! It is a great excuse to hang out together, yet not have to leave home.
***Be sure to stick around to the end of this post as I am partnering with Date Night In to giveaway ONE DATE NIGHT BOX!****
Our Minute to Win It Date Night in Box Experience
Each month, the Date Night in Box has a different theme and, as I mentioned, this month’s theme was Minute to Win It. I had a feeling it would be fun and light-hearted–a perfect theme for summer time!
Our last Date Night In box did not have recipes but this box did and I was so excited! You certainly do not have to make the recipes for the date, but I thought it was fun to have a dinner plan and to get a chance to cook together (like we did often pre-kids!)
We got to make chicken burgers, sweet potato fries and a Mexican dip! I prepped the dip earlier in the day and then my husband and I made the burgers and fries together.
After dinner, we got to the date activity! I am going to say now–this box was SO MUCH FUN! We loved that this date box was so silly. We decided to have our date on our back patio since it was so nice outside.
We reviewed all the instructions and contents in the box before starting our activities.
For this date, we were competing against each other for six minute to win it challenges. They were all very silly competitions! We started with a contest to see who could unwrap a roll of streamers the fastest.
I tried my hardest on this challenge but I was no match for my husband.
He was hands down the winner on this challenge!
My husband and I can be competitive when it comes to fun games (hello putt putt golf!), so we rose to the challenges for this date!
We also had a few fun challenges with jelly beans! (I won one of the challenges and my husband the other challenge).
The cookie challenge was too hilarious! We had to place a cookie on our foreheads and move our faces so that the cookie would end up in our mouth. I had such little faith in my skills but I won this challenge!
After our six challenges, we actually TIED 3-3! Phew! This was such a fun and memorable evening! I love that we could have such a fun date without leaving our house.
How The Date Night in Box Works
The Date Night in Box provides all the tools and instructions you need to have a unique date night at home experience! When you open up the box, you first need to read the instruction aka date card! (Anyone catch the Bachelor reference?!). Most months, the box comes with a link to a playlist of music for the date as well as a recommended menu. This box allows you have have a complete night in with very little preparation on your part!
Considering all the effort it can take to plan a date night out (coordinate schedules, find a sitter, get dressed up), the Date Night in Box is way more enticing!!
