Tell me what you are doing to keep the spark alive and the boredom down during Quarantine 2020? I have made a list of some of our favorites to get you through when you can’t leave your home. Here’s some fun ideas that you can do at home, after the kids fall asleep of course 😉
Cook a Gourmet Meal Together
Hopefully you have already stocked your cabinets and fridge with the essentials. If not, just make a list for your next grocery run so you can do this fun activity with your spouse. Google a recipe that you’ve never tried before and cook it together. You can also break into the wine rack and pair with a nice wine you’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion to try. Don’t feel like cooking? There are still several local restaurants open for take out and delivery.

Board / Video Game Tournament
Break out those old boards games or video games and create a fun and entertaining challenge. My husband and I are both so competitive so I can’t wait to try this. Consider playing card games or even ordering a new gaming system while Amazon is still delivering. Out favorite is the old school Sega games such as Sonic.
Picnic / Wine Tasting in the Yard
We have been having some gorgeous spring weather in the Midlands. Take advantage of this and plan a picnic with your love. Get creative and pack a neat basket, open the wine cabinet and find a few interesting reds, whites, blush or even craft beer to pack for tastings. Set the scene and enjoy a backyard romantic date evening. You could even plan it around the sunset.
Stream Online Workout Class
We’ve all seen the memes about how large we will be after the quarantine snacks. Why not utilize this time to get in shape for the summer with your other half? Teamwork and having someone to hold you accountable are key to reaching your health and fitness goals. There are many options for online classes at local gyms and national brands.

Paint and Pour Night

There are so many new releases on Amazon Prime and Netflix to get your through this time. Rent a new release movie or revisit one of your favorites. Pop popcorn, turn off the lights and your sound bar up! Pretend you are at your favorite movie theater but better, at home with your love.
Finally get around to hanging those old photo’s! Wishing your couch faced a different direction? Or do you want to finally paint over that outdated color in your bathroom? It may sound boring, but when done right redecorating can be a really fun (and productive!) date night.
We would love to hear how you and your date are spending this time. Feel free to comment your ideas and plans for the upcoming weekend below 🙂
