I put date night in quotes because most of our date nights tend to be at-home-after-the-kids-are-in-bed affairs. (Getting a babysitter and doing things out and about town on a weekly basis tends to be cost-prohibitive.) On this date night, we spent time with our plans for our new house, tweaking problem areas and envisioning each space. I love this stage of building a house. You can sit down with all your dreams and a stack of home magazines and books and create!
