Cheap Date Idea

The other day handsome and I were both extremely bogged down with a lot of work and prior engagements that did not include each other.

That is my living room. That is also our date night. You see that little hole on the left of the fort? That was our “door” except like true fort style, you have to crawl through the door. Even when you are handsome’s size.

Yes and even when you are inside there is sitting, crawling, or cuddling as the only option for movement.

As you can see I tore apart our bed and our apartment and created a fort. How do you create a fort? That is a sick, sick question. Go read your journal from when you were a child and tap into that resource.

Basic Steps:

Unmantle bed
Take of sheets
Create some type of square, circle, or dome type shape. Something wide enough to fit everything in.
Find the biggest mother-trucking-blanket you have (We call ours the mega- blanket).
Drape it over the mattresses, couches, or cushions.
Add more blankets for walls, or a door for your fort. (Please note I almost wrote fart).

I also suggest leaving a sign outside the door to lure your handsome in.

Also there’s a high chance if you have a dog. They are NOT going to appreciate this.

Also when doing these. Please make sure you do not lose your phone or wallet. These things can easily be lost under blankets, weights, books, etc.

This is what we had for dinner – TACOS.

Basically we snuggled under the our mega blanket watching a netflix movie with all homemade food and snuggles.

Best. Date. Ever.

Cost = almost none.
