Good Morning friends! We are back to Monday and it’s time to get busy. I hope everyone had a great weekend and could celebrate dad a bit yesterday. Today’s post is all about summer and by that, I mean fun summer date ideas. I’ve seen some people do variations of this and I decided it would be fun to mention what I do with the bf because girl, in Texas you don’t necessarily want to have a picnic in the summer.
We all know when it comes to summer in Texas it can be brutal. Most people don’t want to spend any time outside because that heat really gets to you. It kind of sucks because you see all these other people living in different places enjoying the outdoors and you are stuck thinking I’m not sure about this. I’ve compiled a list of a couple ideas for those who have such strong summer weather.
I mean this one is an oldie but a goodie. I’m not a huge movie person but I feel like the summer time is usually when a lot of great films come out. You’re indoors so you can feel all the AC you want. I know movies tend to be a bit pricey but most places can give you discounts on certain days or always check Groupon. Also check to see if your cellphone carrier does any sort of specials. I know T-Mobile has T-Mobile Tuesdays where you can sometimes catch a deal on movies and AT&T has buy one get one free movie tickets on Tuesdays. Also, I know for Houston there is a theater on Groupon right now where you can tickets for $5!
#2 Baseball Games
I know some of you are thinking what!? It’s outdoors so um hello it’s hot. Well here in Houston our home team actually plays in an indoor venue. Depending on what’s happening, they do sometimes open the roof like on Friday’s when they have a firework show. They have all kinds of different things going on every day of the week and the tickets are usually not too expensive. Trust me it’s a lot of fun to get dressed up and take your SO out to the ball game.
If your bf/gf has a console system you are in luck! I didn’t realize how many games they have for family/friends and they are seriously the best. Recently I’ve been really into karaoke games! We either cook or get some take out and enjoy the rest of the night at home! We also play other games like Jackbox party pack and Hasbro Family Fun pack. The best part about this is that you don’t have to get dressed up because you are home!
Another outdoor activity but this one obviously keeps you cool. Just make sure to use sunscreen and bring a hat! At least that’s what I take! This is one outdoor summer activity that pretty much everyone can enjoy. If you don’t have a pool hit the nearest beach! To save some $$ take some food with you. I usually take sandwiches or a chicken salad with crackers!
#5 Late Summer Bars
One thing we both enjoy from time to time is hitting up any patio bars or bars that have patios. We get some refreshing drinks, enjoy the conversation, and the weather has cooled down enough to be bearable. It’s seriously so fun! We don’t do this often because drinks can be expensive (check specials!) but it is something we do from time to time.
I hope you guys enjoyed these date ideas any if you have any recommendations please send them my way! We are always looking for new things to do!
