date night kit

I just finished making this date night kit for the couple that counseled Charlton and I before getting married. Benny and Brenda were so generous with their time and we are so thankful for the things we learned from them that we wanted to thank them. We thought the perfect gift would be 4 date nights planned and ready to go. This is a gift to Benny, so he doesn't have to plan and a gift to Brenda, because each night will hold something new for her to discover.

The ideas come from dates Charlton and I enjoyed while dating and we still enjoy being married today...you might enjoy them too, if you're in Birmingham.

Date No 1 :: A Casual Date, Beer and Pizza

dinner: whole foods market

recommended menu: portabello pesto pizza and 365 brand root beer

post dinner: dollar movie on lorna road
visit carmike.com for showimes

Date No 2 :: A Fancy Dinner Date, Bottega Cafe

pre dinner: take a stroll around highland park

dinner: bottega cafe on highland avenue

post dinner: on your way home stop by 32° 
at the summit for some yogurt

Date No 3: A Coffee Date, O'Henry's

where: o’henry’s coffee shop on 18th street
in downtown homwood

what: enjoy relaxing and spending time together;
after coffee take a stroll around homewood

Date No 4: A Cheap Date, Spare Change

what: when money is tight, we like to fish around 
for spare change and see if we can find 
enough for ice cream

where: depends on how much change you can find 
and you might have to share
