So Mike and I signed a deal to play our biggest hits acoustically on MTV…just kidding. Is that still a thing?
Anyway, what we are doing is trying to spend at least one night a week unplugged. Unplugged from computers, phones, TVs, etc. etc. etc. Those things always seem to creep into our evenings one way or another. Usually it stems from habit or from laziness. Often from boredom.
“What do you want to do?”
“I don’t know what do you want to do?”
You finish this conversation, ok?
Before Ellen, we had no problem heading out of the house for a drink or just to walk around downtown for a bit. We didn’t do anything crazy, but we just got out for a bit and lived in the world and enjoyed each other. It was pretty sweet. Say “awwww.”
But, now that we’ve got the Bean Gal, she demands beauty rest at 7pm-no-later-please. Thankfully it is working — she is quite beautiful.
But, it leaves Mike and me with the aforementioned conundrum on our oh-so-tired hands. What do we do with our nights?
So, here are a few things we have come up with:
Yep. That’s about it. We’re in a good ol’ rut. Can you help us out? What do you do in the evening? Mandatory: it must be unplugged (Don’t worry. We don’t use the vacuum when we clean. Unplugged…remember?).

Having an unplugged night once a week is a great idea! My son is an early riser who goes to bed late, so hubs and I usually only have a little more than an hour between his bed time and ours. This hour is usually spent half asleep on the couch in front of TV….. going unplugged at least once a night sounds like such a great way to also connect with each other Thanks for the inspiration!
Aaron and I used to have unplugged Mondays (I say used to because nights have become so busy, we now basically use it to catch up on dvr). What we are doing now, that I love, is each night, at bed time, we google ‘relationship questions’ and we ask each other three questions from whatever site we end up on. It is neat because we find out things about each other we didn’t know, and we thought we knew everything!
Totally said “awwww”… lol
A friend of mine use to campfire with her husband. Theyd roll out the sleeping bag, but on a fire and make smores. Since you have the apartment, find a fieplace app, (or, to stay unplugged…im sure you could pinterest it!) turn off the lights and let it crinkle! Or, you can start your own bible study. Find a large piece of wood and get a 1000 piece puzzle. Do the puzzle together on the wood. That way, when you are sick of it, you can slide it under the couch or bed away from sticky fingers and pull it out on your next night. Spend time with baby number two. Just the three of you. Write letterz, sing, read books. Spend that time bonding with next baby, the same time you gave to El before she came to be. I love this idea! Enjoy and share what you find!
