Jon and I had this date night a couple of weeks ago, but I am just now getting around to blogging about it! I have tried to be more intentional about planning fun date nights with Jon at least once a month. We both have busy schedules and I want to be able to make the most out of the time that we get to spend together. Not to mention I love dating my man! I also really enjoy planning date nights and sharing them with you so here we go.
|The inspiration for this date night came from the movie X-Men First Class. Jon bought this movie a few weeks ago, however we hadn't even taken it out of the packaging yet! I thought that this would be a great theme for an at home date night. I looked at The Dating Divas website for ideas, but they did not have a superhero x-men date...bummer! I ended up making up this date all by myself.|
|I sent the invite via email, because Jon was at work. I took several different invitation ideas that I found on Pinterest and adapted them to meet my needs.|
|The theme of the even was X-Men, so for dinner we made a "mutant" meal. What exactly is that? Well I searched through my pantry until I found something to transform into dinner. We had pasta, sauce, and pizza dough bread sticks.|
|I also made Crystal Light to give us an extra dose of energy!|
|I used this recipe and adapted it to make the pizza bread sticks.|
|They turned out great!|
|I work hard to make dinner while Jon finished up his work.|
|The Iceman was even nice enough to chill our glasses for us.|
|After Jon got home from work we were able to kick off our night with dinner!|
|Before we watched the movie I thought is would be fun if we each drew the #1 superhero power we wish we had.|
|If I could have any superhero power it would be to FLY!|
|If Jon could have any superhero power, it would be to control the weather!|
|We had a great date night and we both really enjoyed this movie!!|
