Date Night Cheat Sheet….

Hello bloggy buddies. Thank you all for your warm birthday wishes. I am so glad I have such a great group of blog friends. I especially want to thank Shannon, you are awesome!! I love my scarf : )

Well, yesterday I shared my birthday date night in NYC. I told you about the ‘cheat sheet’ I whipped out while the hubs and I were at dinner. Sometimes couples need a little help getting the conversation started so I thought I would share it with you. I thought it was great.


  • Name 3 countries you would like to visit.
  • Which celebrity annoys you most?
  • How would you spend $1,000,000.
  • If you could try out any occupation for one year, what would it be?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool are you?

  • If you could rewind any point in your past, what would you want to relive?
  • How would you spend a perfect day alone?
  • What is the most honest thing you have ever done?
  • How would you like people to describe you at your funeral?
  • What would you want us to do for the next 10 years if you knew they would be your last?

  • Hollywood called and they want to make a movie about your life. Who would play you?
  • Name something you love that no one else seems to like.
  • What’s the one item you own that you know you should get rid of but never will?
  • Name the one thing you miss about our dating days?
The other thing I wanted to share was something that was incorporated in to the show that we saw… ‘Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating and Marriage.’ Miss Abigail (Jan Brady…who by the way did not age very well…LOL) was a sex therapist. She went over everything you need to know on how to catch the perfect mate and how to keep them. So, here it is…..

‘Miss Abigail’s 10 Commandments for Couples’
1. Men, always greet her with a kiss, especially when other people are around.

2. Women, be good listeners. Let him tell you all of his troubles.

3. Men, remember her birthday and your wedding anniversary.

4. Women, remember a man is only a grown up boy. He needs mothering and enjoys it if it is not piled on too thick.

5. Men, don’t be stingy with the money. Be a generous provider.

6. Women, don’t live beyond your means.

7. Men, don’t take love for granted. Remember your wife wants to be treated as your sweetheart always. She wants you to woo her.

8. Women, never hold up your husband to ridicule in the presence of others. If you must criticize, do so in private and without anger.

9. Men, remember, marriage is a 50-50 proposition and you are not the majority stockholder.

10. Women, don’t try to boss him around. Let him think he wears the pants.


Happy Tuesday…

Oh no! I missed your birthday!

Happy (belated) Birthday (from your lame blogging friend)!

I love this idea! Mr. BFG and I always end up talking about the kids or "business" and sometimes just forget about the other things that we enjoy chatting about! Fantastic!

I may have to print this post out, just in case we ever get another date night. ;-) It's definitely hard to start conversation with someone you spend every day with.

And just in case you were wondering what my answer would be to the "how cool are you?" question...10! Most definitely. :-)

Those are great convo starters! And the other list is great too! men are just grown up boys... Too funny!

Shannon said...

Such a cute post! Funny thing is when Bret and I actually have a date night the conversation usually always turns to the house or Sweet Bean! But, in all honesty, that's just fine with me!

Glad you like your scarf and yay for date night with the hubby!

This is great! I think I'd like to try and answer the questions for the Hubs and he can see how I do. LOL. I'm hoping we'll get a date night one of these days :)
