I probably don’t have to tell you how cold it’s been the last couple of weeks. Most of the United States have seen snow, ice, sleet, just nasty weather. The weather is keeping us from having a date night outside of the house so we have decided to have date night inside the house. What is most comforting on a cold day besides your spouse? Yep, you guessed it SOUP!

We are some movie buffs but we also like binge-watching TV series. So we prepared the potato soup and got comfy on the couch and turned on Netflix.
We find new shows to watch on Netflix all the time. Our favorites right now are:
-Life (the TV series) (finished watching it)
-Lie to Me
-Nikita (we just started watching this & is hooked)
-House of Cards (season premiere 2/27)
Plus we are able to watch the shows from our childhood and laugh because we can’t believe we use to watch them.
The point is: there is no excuse not to date your spouse. Cold or bad weather shouldn’t keep you from being intentional about the quality time you and your spouse spend together.
How do you and your spouse date during bad weather days?
