A few weeks back I wanted to plan a budget friendly date night for Alex and I. I wanted to spend some quality time with him but knew that I didn’t really want to go out. I was craving a wine and cheese night, so I figured I would create an in apartment wine and cheese night. Of course I did a Google search and got some ideas from internet bloggers; most things they recommended were ideas that I already had.
I love surprises so I kept Alex in the dark. I headed to Trader Joe’s and picked up fresh bread, a box of assorted crackers and a few different types of cheese. To keep a nice variety I picked hard and soft cheeses. I got a variety pack of goat cheese which included plain, five pepper and garlic and herb, brie, Gouda and a dubliner Irish cheese. The Irish cheese came recommended from an employee at Trader Joe’s and it actually ended up being our least favorite. Of the other 3, we couldn’t pick our favorite because they were all so different!
Next I headed over to Bevmo and got 3 bottles of wine and they were having their awesome wine sale: buy one bottle get one for 5 cents! I got one bottle of white and two red. I also cut up some grapes and apples to pair with the cheese and crackers.
Alex loved the creative stay at home date night and we had such a great time! I definitely recommend this date night if you are trying to do something fun and inexpensive with your boyfriend!
(I had more pictures but remember that time my phone got stolen?! yea, my pics are gone with it! grr! still bitter)
Anyway, hope you have an awesome Wednesday!
