The sun will come out tomorrow…or not! Happy Friday everyone. I’m sure you are all as sick of this weather as we are. It’s messy, bad for your hair and it a complete mood depressor. So, with the forecast looking pretty bleak for the weekend…let’s make lemonade. Here’s your Friday Five for FUN things to do for a rainy date, inside or out.
If you’re adventurous enough to go out, but still want to keep it indoors:
Bowling- A personal favorite. You always forget how fun it is and wonder why you don’t do it more often. And a complete bonus…a ponytail is the perfect accessory!
Grown-up games- The thought of being in a dark pool hall or bar when the weather is gorgeous is a bit depressing. But, with grey skies and rain it sounds kind of romantic. Play some pool or maybe a game of Ms. Pac Man!
Local Breweries- I did this recently and it was a total blast. Check out your local breweries and make an afternoon of it. Make sure you take a growler to go!
Shop til you drop- Maybe this is a great time to shop at your favorite mall. Are you on the hunt for something? Team up and make a date out of it!
Get Cultured- There are probably so many things going on in your area that you probably don’t even know about. Catch a local play or performance, visit a museum, laugh at a comedy show (my personal fav).
Don’t want to leave the house (and we don’t blame you):
Game Night- Dust off those old games from the closet. Monopoly, Scrabble, Boggle or good old fashioned cards. Feeling spicy…add “strip” to any of those!
Build a fire- Snuggle up and enjoy a cozy fire. You won’t be able to do it much longer.
Cook together-Pick a theme and have fun with it. Italian night, stir fry or maybe fondue. The possibilities are endless.
Movie marathon- Catch up on the classics or rent the latest block buster. Popcorn and candy mandatory!
karaoke- Always good for a good laugh!
By the way, date night is not just for the newly dating or recently married. It’s a great night to spice up your relationship at any stage. Or maybe a great night with a best friend is just what the doctor ordered. Whatever your night brings…enjoy!
Some of our favorites!
