Life is busy enough as it is, and with a new baby on the way, you know that soon enough, there will be even less free time for you and your significant other to enjoy a night out. So go ahead and call your babysitter, get dressed up, and have some fun. But, while you are deciding where you want to go, switch it up by trying this fun and spontaneous new way. When we first read about the Penny Date, we had so many questions: does it include freeways or highways? What if we are in a residential area? What if we end up in the middle of nowhere? Luckily, when gave it a try, we didn’t run into any problems but if you and your spouse do, you can alter the rules a bit.
- Find a coin or any object that has two sides.
- Pink a number (it can be as low or high as you want it to be. The higher the number, the further you drive.)
- Decide which end (heads or tails) represents ‘left’ or ‘right’
- Get in your car
Every time you arrive at an intersection, flip the coin (we suggest flipping it in advance to give the driver some heads up!). Whichever side it lands on, you turn in that direction. So, if you decided to make heads ‘right’, then if the coin lands on heads, you turn right. Do this for every intersection until you have reached the number that you chose before you began. Wherever you end up, this is where you will have a spontaneous date night.
Of course, a change of clothes may be necessary but casual maternity jeans, maternity blouse or a comfortable maternity dress with ankle boots is so versatile that you can do just about anything and be comfortable in this. Our favorite, however, is a maternity maxi skirt and maternity cardigan which is always chic and easily dressed up or down ensemble.
A maternity nursing dress to keep you comfortable in style. Pair with a strappy ankle boot and belt and it’s that simple. For a dressier look, throw on a statement necklace to instantly add some sparkle.
Mixing prints with a casual striped maternity dress perfect for a warm day-date and a lightweight scarf. Bring along a cardigan if it gets cool.
We know, this idea sounds crazy and unpredictable, but if anything, it leads to one great story- and we would love to hear your story!
