"Do You Want to Have a Cleaning Party for Date Night?!"

Date night doesn't always have to be exciting and adventurous. There was nothing glamorous about our date this past weekend, but we accomplished something together, ended the night with some quality time together and we won't have to spend as much time cleaning every night each week to catch up, so we'll be able to spend more time together after the kids go to bed in future weeks.You might be surprised by how much fun you have cleaning your house for date night! Whether you tackle getting caught up on the daily cleaning, focus on deep cleaning one room or work on getting rid of the things in your house that you don't need anymore, you'll feel accomplished when you're done.

Shows to Watch Together on Netflix

It is our goal to be intentional about making time to work on our marriage every single day. That being said, at the end of each day, you'll usually find us curled up together in bed, watching our current Netflix binge. After we've finished our work day, cleaned up the kitchen and the kids are in bed, we're usually both exhausted. Some nights, we love to sit back and relax and when we do, we love having a show to watch together. Looking back on the shows that Joe and I have watched together and taking some suggestions from other couples, I put together a master list you can refer to the next time you're looking for something good to watch together.
