50 First Dates...in a Jar

The hubby and I aim for one date night per month.  We've realized we have been sort of boring with our date nights and most often end up going out for dinner and a movie.  I'm not saying that's a horrible date, it's just not that exciting.

Enter the "date night jar"!  
 
The list I came up with for our date night jar includes date night ideas that can be carried out almost anywhere you live, but my list also includes many activities specific to Seattle and the surrounding areas.  I have provided links to Seattle area specific activities if you live in the area and would like more information on those.
 
Green = outdoor activities
Pink = indoor activities
Orange = restaurants
So, if the weather is nasty, we know not to choose a green stick...you get the idea. 
 
What you need:
Wooden sticks - $1.50 at Fred Meyer (I used the smallest ones they had in the craft aisle)
Markers - if you want to color-code the sticks
Fine-tip sharpie
2 containers (One for the completed date nights)

Kerry Park picnic

Live music at Luther’s Table

Off-roading in Matt’s truck (This one was his idea :)

Watch the sunset

Seattle Art Museum (First Thursday of each month is FREE!)
