Adoption involves a lot of waiting! To help pass the time, I planned 12 dates for my husband and I. Some are goofy, some are sweet, all are inexpensive (many are free). So far we have enjoyed two adventures, in our August date and September date!
I couldn't resist.
When planning all the dates, I made a conscious effort to make them about us and our current relationship, and not about our adoption. But....
After I saw this adorable Asian-inspired date idea, I couldn't resist tweaking it for us!
Here is the date card I placed in the envelope.

The Chinese symbols on the date card mean I love you...according to google translator.
We decided pretty early on in the month that we would enjoy the "pick-up" option for our Asia-inspired date. The last time we made dumplings it was pretty time-consuming. Plus, a new restaurant opened in town that we were excited to try! So, on Friday night we swung by and ordered a bag full of deliciousness.
Future Papa ordered some chicken fried rice.
While I prepared to enjoy a veggie dish!
At first I thought that they had forgotten the rice. I probably complained about it for a full five minutes before I realized...it was just in a separate container! It had been a loooong week.
To top off the relaxing evening of cuddles and cuisine, we watched the latest episode of Up All Night. Have y'all been watching? As future first-time parents, we find it hilarious.
Simple and low-key, it was exactly what we needed this month. Re-reading this post, it sounds even less exciting than it was, ha! What's your favorite type of low-key date?
