The term "Fun Friday" floats around my friend circle quite a bit. Whether it's a "love" date with a spouse or a challenge from our dear friend's blog...Fun Friday is a day to make it a point to have fun!
Alan and I took a marriage class the last couple weeks at our church. Such a blessing! Every week we had a "date night" assigned for homework. I loved all the ideas they suggested and even began to think of my own could-do-with-kids-and-no-money style date night ideas.
And as much as I love my marriage, it is hard work. (Can I get an Amen?) But we must stay on top of the connection we desire with our spouses. It is top priority! Top! Maybe, like me, the idea of a "date night" brings dollar signs to mind...babysitters and pricey dinners? There's no need! Unless that's what you want of course! Date night doesn't mean you need to get rid of the kids. All you really need is the attitude to have fun! And who doesn't love their marriage the most when they're enjoying themselves?
That being said....I've decided to start my own Fun Fridays. I'll be starting with a monthly challenge. These might be Family Fun Nights or Date Night style. Because our kids will only benefit from seeing us have fun in our relationship, but sometimes...an evening away can be the best way to love them. No matter what, we all need more fun in our lives!
This month's Fun Friday idea...
For us, the kids and I are on our way to my mom's house in sunny Florida tonight! But we will definitely be putting on some very serious car dancing. So if you happen to be on I-75 this evening....we'll be the swagger wagon...with swagger.
I hope you love these ideas as much as I do!
Happy Fun Friday Friends!
How do you keep the fun in your marriage, family, life? I'd love to know!
