I’ll tell you all about my newest date with hubby and share 10 budget friendly date ideas with you as well.
I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard what hubby wanted to for our Friday date! Which shows that after all this time, he still surprises me every now and then. He actually wanted to go down town and shop!
We started with getting something to eat, as usual, and enjoyed getting a table next to the window so we could people watch as well. We had a lot of fun with it. Coming up with stories about the people that went by, where they were going and what they did for a living. There were some outfit commenting as well, and we saw that there really are some brave people out there, that just wear whatever they like.
Well, after we ate, we walked around down town and headed right to a little second hand store (I know, we love second hand stores) that we really like. It’s called “Mothers help” and they only have children clothing, toys, equipment and maternity clothes. Usually we go there with a big IKEA bag of clothes that are too small for VL and come out with a handful of clothes for him.
There are a couple of cheap stores down town, that we like and of course we went there as well. It’s amazing how much funny junk you can find in those stores and we had a lot of fun picking out the weirdest or funniest item we found. We also looked at Halloween decorations and costumes (since we haven’t decided yet what we’ll be!)
It’s been a while since we went down town and we really enjoyed it. Walking hand in hand, in no rush, and just looking around.
