If you've visited any local stores lately, you know the shelves are all stocked with Valentine's Day cards and goodies and everything is drowning in pink and red. Traditionally speaking, I think it's safe to assume this particular holiday is more adored by women than men and has become so commercialized that our men must feel so pressured to do something BIG on this ONE day every year. Well I personally don't know any woman (or man for that matter) who is perfectly fine with receiving love and attention for only one day. PUH-LEASE!
A great marriage takes hard work 365 days a year, not just on holidays! Our busy schedules and life circumstances often make it difficult to keep the romance alive especially as parents during the preschool years. This whole idea is what inspired the #GECMOPSDateNightChallenge. Our hope is that this challenge will be fun and creative and most of all, fan the flame of your marriage. So BE BRAVE and TAKE THE CHALLENGE!
Complete all 3 of our "challenges" by...
-taking a pic of you and your hubby doing the challenge
-post it to your social media account, hashtagged #GECMOPSDateNightChallenge
Every couple that completes all 3 challenges before our Feb.26 meeting will be entered into a drawing for a dinner date out, complete with a babysitter (paid for by MOPS).
CHALLENGE #1: DO SOMETHING OUTSIDE TOGETHER
CHALLENGE #2: CREATE SOMETHING TOGETHER
CHALLENGE #3: EAT DINNER OR DESSERT TOGETHER AFTER THE KIDS ARE IN BED.
The goal is to have fun, laugh together, and enjoy one another. Don't make this complicated and there is no need to involve money.
