Taking Date Night to the Next Level: The Alphabet Challenge


When’s the last time you had a date night?


Between cleaning baby bottles and stepping on hot wheels … our date nights slowly became nonexistent.



Six months after baby number 2, we decided to get back on track with our dates. However, dinner and a movie gets old. Real quick. So, we decided to spice it up a little bit by doing the Alphabet Date Night Challenge.


What in the world is the Alphabet Date Night Challenge?


Date Night number 1: Find something local that begins with the letter A.

Date Night number 2: Find something local that begins with the letter B.

And, so on.

Our Rule:
Try somewhere new (Unless it’s our absolute favorite place).


How often do you partake in the Challenge?
It’s completely up to you!
Our goal is a monthly date night. So, in two years, we will complete the alphabet!
