Dating Your Husband
This post is sponsored by Børn. I only work with brands I truly enjoy and believe in. Thank you for allowing me to share them with ya’ll!
So I jokingly talk about punching my husband in the face on social media every now and again. And I know we’ve all thought that. But in all honesty what I’ve realized from having two kids is that it’s more important now to focus on my relationship with my husband than ever before. Not only do we have a lifetime together, but we need to set good relationship models for our children!
So here are my tips and tricks to Dating Your Husband
- Schedule a date night, where you actually get out of the house alone together, at least once a month. That may seem sparing, but I know how hard it is for some couples to find babysitters etc so start with one night a month and go from there.
- Try something new for date night (or day)! Go kayaking, see a play, try a new and different restaurant… the possibilities are endless.
- For those weekends, and even week nights, that you can’t get a sitter, plan a fun date at home! Cook dinner together, play a board game, or have a movie night.
- Surprise him with little gifts and treats. I try to at least pick him up his favorite snack at the grocery store once a week. It’s the little things people!
- Mandatory cuddle time. For at least 5 minutes before bed (or longer) make sure you get a snuggle sesh in. Those moments of contact are great for your mental health and reconnecting.
- Leave him a sweet voicemail or note randomly. Again- small things.
- Get dressed up for him! This one is the hardest for me as I love to be in my workout clothes with my hair in a ponytail and no makeup on. But every once in awhile I’ll put on a cute outfit with hair and makeup done. Not only does he appreciate it but I feel great as well!
Jason is wearing the Børn Porto boots and I’m wearing the Garcias. Both are available at Dillards.
While I’m all about dressing up, I’m all about comfort too. Which is why I got both of us a pair of Børn boots- that takes care of number 4 and number 7 above btw! I’ve talked before about how much I love Børn shoes, and the number one reason is COMFORT. I can wear these puppies all day without fear of sore feet or blisters. Not to mention how good they look. I’ve worn these boots out several times and have consistently received compliments on them. I love the color of the leather and the fashion-forward design. You’ll be seeing me in these shoes the rest of the season!
I really love these Porto boots for Jason as they are so his style and go great with a pair of jeans and button up. I plan on making him take me dancing in our new boots 😉
Really enjoyed this post and definitely needed to read it! I have been getting so stressed out by the littlest things lately and I’m realizing it’s because we have both been so busy and just need to take a break (with each other). A lot of times we like to relax outside of the home or chaos that’s causing us stress but I think I really just needn’t is some good old fashion flirting! Time to step up my game ?
Love this – and totally agree with you that it’s all about the little things. They are the building blocks for establishing a lasting relationship with your spouse.
Those boots are too cute. Will have to try them out sometime. Thanks.
Yes I definitely need to get better about little things, especially with not immediately coming home and throwing on sweats and my headscarf. Great post!
Totally agree with all of these! I often find myself resisting “new” dates because when we are tired from a long week, it sounds so much easier to go somewhere familiar, but I always end up loving the ones where we went a little out of the box the most. You and your hubby are so cute together!
Cute post! With two little ones we have a hard time making space to really continue to date each other. But, I agree little things help! Sending him a text right now 🙂
yall are precious! Seriously important tips. I think scheduling date nights are so important.
This is so darling! I love the photo you posted on your Facebook blog page from this post too! Y’all look so genuinely happy together!
Y’all are adorable. I couldn’t agree more on the importance of date night – we swear to date night once a week at least! I lovelovelove your ideas, too. I’m always picking up grocery store treats…it’s the little things!

YES girl!! this post is so great. dating your spouse is so important and this is something that my husband and i try to do as often as we can!!
We have tried to always make Friday our date night and typically go out once or twice a month on a Friday. It’s so nice to know that it is planned and gives you something to look forward to. So totally agree with the cuddling!
We need to be better about out of the house date nights.
Yes! The more kiddos you have, the more you realize how special time with your spouse is. Love the boots. I ALWAYS love boots!
Lovely pics of you and hubby, you look very happy.
These boots are too cute!
And, great advice. I definitely feel like my husband and I have grown closer now that we’ve added a second child to the family. He and I find that the time we have together to with just us two feels even more precious/special since it can be hard to come by at times.
A date every now and again can be just what you need to keep your marriage happy! Great post. And I love the boots!
You are so cute! I love your dress and your shoes! Marriage is so important. 🙂
You both are super cute, and you both dress really well!!! haha
Loved this post! Gavin and I went out on Friday and it felt like we were dating again – I loved it!

Your dress is gorgeous! I love tip #7! It is so important to get dressed up for them and make date night more than just another day.
I totally agree with you about scheduling dates. We get so busy during the week, we unfortunately neglect “us” time. Thanks for the reminder
Great advice. Studies prove that Dating is the key to a successful relationship and even once a month can have a huge impact!
