The Perfect at home date night with Uncommon Goods

date night ideas

OC has been in my life for some time now. Its actually been a year - I was just quiet about it for a while. If we're really technical about the whole thing, I wasn't really quiet was I - I was absent. I digress...

Anyway, we're both busy professionals (me an attorney and him an auditor at an accounting firm) and not always in the mood to cook something special or to go out for a fancy dinner. If I'm honest, I'm rarely in the mood to get all the way dressed up just to go eat - it has to be a special occasion. I'm also particularly financially conscious these days, because bills. And because I do plan on buying a home at some point in the not too distant future.

That means 'date night' sometimes equals whatever is in the fridge and a movie or TV show. Again, being honest, more often than not its going to be a show because frankly shows are shorter  and #webetired #andold. 

All that said, it doesn't mean we can't have a decent at-home date fest. Because we do. A lot.

I kinda make it a priority to keep 'dating' even when we don't go out, while still of course being the boring (we're not that boring but you get the point) old couple we've become - in a year :l. I've been told it's important to keep dating each other and not yanno, be boring house bats.

The way I see it, you don't need a lot to be happy. After all, what should matter is being together right? With food? And of course wine.

Take for instance last week, we decided to have a date night at home since we head to Barbados soon (next week) and it couldn't have been more simple or perfect. We ordered in some pizza, poured out our favourite wine and plopped down to look at Fresh Prince on Netflix (OC's favourite Netflix binge)

It was perfect.. 

Pizza. Wine. Netflix. Done.

And to jazz things up even more, we used these fancy wooden wine glasses.

Speaking of wooden wine glasses, I scored the perfect wooden wine glasses on Uncommon Goods. No lie, I've been basically obsessed with Uncommon goods for weeks. Since purchasing these glasses (with store credit sent to me), I have purchased several other items on my own. See, apart from the fact that they have really unique things on the site, I like that the company partners with small business owners and focuses so heavily on the use of recycled, reclaimed and upcycled materials. 

I also like that you can find basically anything on their site .... like yanno, wooden wine glasses. But seriously, you can find gifts for men, baby gifts, baby shower gifts, home items, art, jewelry, personalized gifts, gifts for women, kids - You name it, you can find it there. My birthday is in a few weeks and I already pointed OC in that direction - not kidding.

I'm pretty grateful that our simple, boring date night looked just a little fancier because of our wooden wine glasses. But seriously, they are so cute. 

Whats your perfect at home date night?

Have a great Wednesday guys!!

  1. At home date nights are sometimes better than going out because you don't have to get dressed up and you can stay comfy! xo, biana -BlovedBoston

  3. um, how cool are those wine glasses?!
    we hardly ever go out.. maybe one day we will do date nights, like when we need to get away from kids haha, but we are pretty happy to just chill at home. more often than not, KC is on his computer or watching TV and I'm reading, so... you know. whatever works haha. Sometimes if we are feeling crazy, we'll go to a morning movie on a Sunday. I know. we are so wild.
    that pizza looks delish!

  10. We are happy to have date nights at home.
    Question...does the wine taste different sipping it from wooden as opposed to glass? Curious......

  12. A year already! Wow :) David and I are pretty much this after 3 months already, hah. We go out to eat a lot but mostly quick and casual (he lives in a great foodie neighborhood in NYC) and he works crazy hours, and I work a few evenings a week so low-key is easier most days. But you're totally right in that those Netflix and chill nights can still be sweet date nights! Going to remember this next time we're planning a quiet night in and make it more like a date ;)

  15. We love having this type of date night! It's the perfect in-between of having a nice at-home dinner and sitting in front of the TV. Thanks for sharing!

  18. Body care is equally important as skin care and I used to eat healthy and stay punctual with workouts also disciplined with time. I started using the hgh supplement for muscle building along with my workouts which is equally good for women and it's effects really amazed me.
