Wine and Trivia
We are so competitive and love testing our knowledge and drinking a few glasses of wine! Trust me, if you two take pride in learning, this game is loads of fun! (The vintage trivia pursuit game is much more educationally based while modern trivia is more celebrity and sport based)
Make some coffee and divulge in your own personal hobbies, together! For instance, I’ve been in the mood to organize and minimize my space for awhile now. My fiance enjoys playing guitar so we often hang out in the same room, enjoying our hobbies separately but still somewhat together. I request songs I want to hear while I’m cleaning and then he plays it for me. I think of it as a way to remain connected and involved in each other’s interests, even if you have some different hobbies.
Plant an Indoor Garden
Beans and cherry tomatoes do so well on your windowsill! –> Harvest the produce to make foodie cuisine for a romantic dinner in!
The best thrift stores are those run by the community! You never know what you’ll find! It’s sort of like treasure hunting! Depending on your knowledge of antiques, there’s a real chance you could find something treasury! 👑 The best part is, you never spend as much money as you would in any department store and the quality is usually much higher.
