Super Fun Date Ideas! // Guest Post by Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno

Hey guys!  It's Kelly from Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno filling in for Melissa on her last day of vaca.  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to post about fun dates.  I always hear people say that they can't think of something special to do and that all the fun stuff costs too much, so I thought I'd share a couple ideas from our own hangouts/dates with our handsome men.

Have a themed movie marathon.
Dress silly, make snacks, drinks and plant your bum on a couch for a few hours. One of me and Korey's first dates was a Star Wars marathon. It ended up taking us two days to get through the movies and on the third day we went to Houston Health Museum for the Star Wars exhibit. This is still one of my favorite weekends with him.

Get out and stay out! 
Spend the day at the museum, park, lake or beach. Be sure to pack a lunch and a longboard, bike, swimsuit, fishing pole, etc... you never know where a day outdoors will lead.

Do something creative. 
Set a day aside and just make something together. Whether it's cooking, baking, designing, or making a silly video. Jacob and Brandi love playing in the kitchen while trying new recipes.

Play games!
Invite friends over for a game day/game night.

Set up your own photobooth. 
Grab all the props around the house, camera, tripod (or a shelf to prop your camera), your love and a beer. You'd be surprised just how much fun you and another person can have just by snapping photos.

Go shopping!
Korey and I like to treasure hunt in record shops, thrift stores and weird dollar stores. Try it out, it's never disappointing.

Have a dance party. 
If you just woke up, had a fight, celebrated, or need to work off dinner from your favorite Mexican restaurant, pick out five albums and have a dance party.

Make a fun video of your hangout.
All Brandi wanted to do on their 3 year anniversary was make Jacob a special dinner and skate to Redbox to get a movie. Done.

Sunday Stroll
Take a walk and explore your neighborhood. You might just find your new favorite coffee shop!

Anyway, the whole point of this is that life's an adventure and no matter what, you always have the capability of having a fun day hanging out or going out on a date. None of these date ideas are ground breaking, but I hope they help you spark some ideas for dates that wont empty your pockets. Valentines day is coming up...

Thanks so much to Kelly and Brandi for sharing these great date ideas!  I LOVE the videos!  (The dance party.  SO.  AWESOME.)  You guys definitely need to stop by their badass blog - everything about it is fun and rad.  Also make sure to check out their shop, which is full of some of the coolest handmade accessories you'll ever lay your pretty little eyes on.

P.S. Mama, I'm comin' home!  See you guys tomorrow!
