A Cozy Great Date Night In

Cozy Date Night In-1Date nights nowadays are located in the comfort of our home.  Fireplace running, homecooked meal, and something on TV.  Though, honestly, this is how most date nights are even without adding a baby to the picture.  After long work weeks, sometimes it’s nice just to be lazy cozy on the couch.

It’s why my husband and I work so well together: in spite of whatever obstacles we face, we always can come home together at the end of the day and plop on the couch with some good food, a bottle of wine, and a movie.  Sometimes we have a fun little debate or talk about our dreams and hopes for the future.

OUR FORMULA TO A GREAT DATE NIGHT IN:

Cozy Date Night In-2

Bar Cart • Chromecast • Cozy Throw • Cheese Dome • “The Giver” movie • Woodbridge Pinot Noir

Everything on this list kind of revolves around a good drink, delicious food, and the Google Chromecast, a USB drive-like device that you can plug in to your television and it will allow you to make your phone/tablet/computer a remote control using the applications you have on those devices.  For $35 it’s an entertainment must-have and it is the key to any date night – or social gathering – we spend at home.  We will cast our favorite music playlist from Songza to the TV and speakers during dinner, then put on a movie from HBO Go, Netflix, or Google Play Store.

If we’re doing wine and cheese night (a favorite of ours and we use that exact cheese board above that we got from our own Wedding Registry!), we are probably on the couch watching something or listening to music while talking about what we want to do next in our life (big or small).  If it’s been a long week and we just want to cuddle up on the couch with a beer (his) or vodka soda (her), we probably turn to a new movie — a recent favorite of both of ours is “The Giver.”
