Painting Date

Derek and I haven't spent much time together other than at night when we're both done with work or when he doesn't have school the next morning since he goes all year. About two weeks ago we both finally had an entire day to spend together so we went on a date inspired by Natalie of Dear Mom. With me getting my own house, but not real back yard in Philly. We decided to plant some cute plants that I could store inside my house, in a pot painted by the both of us. With Derek being the art student, he obviously painted the sunflower while I stuck to the polka-dots. 

What are some fun date ideas that you want to try or have tried out?


  1. Your pot looks so great! And you two also look great. ;)


  2. So cute- I love succulents. My new date idea is to do all the local touristy things that we as locals don't usually do :)

  3. so cute! my boyfriend and i did this for our mothers for mothers day!

    That looks like such a fun date...and what a cute thing to create together :) Drayton and I like to have "exploring dates"--sometimes we put on good walking shoes and explore random little parks and bluffs and hiking trails along the river--and sometimes we put on our fancy duds and explore downtown retail/restaurant areas. We like to stop a couple places and just split an appetizer or drink. Not to expensive, but get to try out fun local places around our city :) We have so many memorable spots!
