Date Night Essentials
Date nights are few and far between around here. We keep losing babysitters as they each go off to college, so date nights are rare but when they happen we try to make it count. What do you do on your date nights? Our usual is dinner and a movie, but at the very least dinner. I’m sure many other parents relate to the fact that there are places that aren’t as much fun to visit with kids in tow so I try and check those off the list when we have the opportunity to go just the two of us.
Date Night Essential #1: Go somewhere you wouldn’t take the kids.
When we do get to go out on a rare date night without the kids, I make sure that I’ve got everything I need in order to make sure it’s a success. Off to Walmart I went to stock up on the essentials so that we can enjoy a stress-free evening of adult conversation and maybe even some romantic hand-holding.
Date Night Essential #2: Pain medicine, just in case.
First I headed over to the pharmacy section. There are two things I don’t leave home without when I’m lucky enough to have a night out. The first is Advil Liqui-Gels. There are few things worse than being out on a date and having a killer headache likely triggered by those three glasses of wine. Nothing’s faster on tough pain (among OTC pain relievers). Use as directed for fast relief from pain so that you can enjoy that movie after a delicious meal.
Date Night Essential #3: Antacid, before you leave.
Another must have is Nexium 24HR. As someone who suffers from chronic gastritis, I never know when I might have a flareup. Nexium is the #1 prescribed acid blocker brand (Based on IMS health data: total Nexium® prescriptions 2006 – 2014) and it’s what my gastroenterologist recommends. When there is too much acid in my stomach it’s almost impossible to find relief and the pain lasts for hours, so I take Nexium 24HR at the beginning of the day to prevent the problem.
Date Night Essential #4: Smooth lips
I also like to keep my lips nice and moisturized. ChapStick Total Hydration is a 100% natural advanced nourishing formula with argan oil and avocado butter and rosehip oils to keep my lips smooth and kissable.
Date Night Essential #5: Fresh breath
Speaking of kissable, I don’t leave home without strong mints. Fresh breath is a date night essential for sure. All of this talk about date night has me in the mood to get all dolled up for a night out with my honey!
