This month’s Date Night In Box was all about dreaming big and aligning your dreams with each other. The theme was “Dream Together.” This date was so fun! I love nothing more than a good goal-setting session, so this was right up my alley. My husband and I often set individual goals, but I’ll admit we could use a little work when it comes to merging those goals!
This month’s box included:
-A dream-catcher kit
-A bag of gourmet jerky
-2 pencils and the paper needed to write our goals out
-A Scattegories game (Goal style!)
-An instruction guide walking us through the night
-An additional faith-themed discussion guide
The night started out with my husband and I individually writing down our personal goals. Night In Boxes gave us ideas for financial, physical, spiritual and family-centered goals. After we brainstormed a bit, we compared our lists and found that we actually had a LOT of similar goals. While we worded things a bit differently, our end vision was the same. I loved this exercise because it really helped knit our hearts together and it showed me that while my spouse and I go about our goals in different ways, we are both committed to the same things.
After we set some goals, we made a dreamcatcher. This was really fun and a great symbol of our night! I am not a very crafty person, but my husband definitely rocked this activity. We enjoyed a tasty snack of beef jerky! This is one of the best parts about each Date Night In Box. Finding new snacks!
After our snack, we played a game of Scattegories Dreams. This was really fun. I made up for my lack of crafting skills by dominating my spouse in this game. 🙂 I loved how it was goal oriented because it really made us think! After Scattegories, we discussed things deeper with our faith-based discussion guide. I loved how this guide taught us more about aligning our dreams with God’s plan for our life. It was really in-depth and included an inspiring story even! My husband thought there could have been more Scripture to back up the points given, though.
All in all, this was a fun night that really set us off on a motivated track! Date Night In Box also includes a curated menu so you can really go all out if you choose. I didn’t do that this month because #pregnancy, but I have done it in the past and felt like Emeril! Date Night In Box costs less than dinner, a movie, and a babysitter. It also provides you with a unique date each month! My husband and I have tried so many new things and it’s honestly the highlight of our month.
