It's not a wedding anniversary or anything but why not celebrate 6 months?! I'm a huge proponent of celebrating the little things in life. So we did! Since it's not a huge anniversary we didn't make such a big deal out of it, but we still had tons of fun. We went to Cafe Rio for lunch and got tostadas with the house dressing (obviously), and I wouldn't want it any other way. Later we went bowling with some friends and then hot-tubbing in the snowy weather! It was so much fun and even though I am a truly terrible bowler (my score was 64) I loved every minute of it. I'm very grateful for the friends I have and for the past six months with my man. Also, those red roses he gave me aren't too shabby either!
Some other low key date ideas that I love:
1.) Fast Food + Slow Views: go grab a burger and fries (and a milkshake of course) from your favorite joint, take it to go and bring it to the prettiest viewpoint you know of. Park the car, play some music, eat, talk and enjoy (if you live anywhere snowy, maybe bring a blanket)
2.) Something New + Something Old: go try something new like ice skating, a trampoline park, swing dancing, etc. and after that come home and put an old favorite movie on! Something like Mulan or The Little Mermaid and sing/dance to the music together (since you both probably already know the words)
3.) Cooking Together + Maybe Not Eating It: try cooking something new together and if all works out well, awesome! If not, usually pizza places are open pretty late.
4.) Fancy Hotel With a Not So Fancy Bill: Go to the nicest hotel in your area (with a restaurant) together, get dressed up and look nice, and order some cheap appetizers on the menu. Kristian and I went to the St. Regis in Deer Valley, we rode the funicular, got a table outside and looked out at the mountains and when it came time for us to order, we split an entree of mussels in the best garlic sauce and got two coffees. It wasn't expensive but it was so so fun!
5.) As Cozy As Possible: my primary concern most of the time is comfort and the coziness level. An awesome date idea is to wear your coziest sweatpants, sweater, fuzzy socks, and a few fuzzy and warm blankets and sit down in front of the TV. A fort is suggested but not required. Play a new series that you've both been dying to watch, pop some popcorn and relax!
