So I thought I’d show you my little date night gift I gave my hubby on Valentine’s Day. We constantly have the same argument on date nights…”Where do we go? I don’t know, where do you wanna go? I don’t care! Just pick somewhere! I DON”T CARE!” Does anyone else have this happen? It is so time consuming that we don’t end up doing anything fun!
I stumbled upon this idea from Life in the Green House on my Pinterest & got really excited. She had some really cute ideas for at-home date nights, date nights that contained planning, etc. Instead of using this same method I decided to tackle our particular problem…where to eat!
Because we’re stationed here we don’t know many of the restaurants outside of this particular city. We rarely drive into Omaha & even when we do the only places we note are chains. So how do we branch out? I love trying new places & hubby does now too so I knew just what to do! I researched on Yelp & read specifics! Lots of them.
In the end I color coded the tops of the sticks by region so if we were going to shop elsewhere we wouldn’t have to keep digging to find a stick for a restaurant there. I placed a card inside then wrote the city name in corresponding shades with the sticks. I put the restaurant name down on each stick confident that we’d be interested in going without eating at the same place all the time! This is perfect for us & exactly what we needed! When we’re trying to think of where to go we don’t want to take the time to research so now we just pull a stick out!
Life in the Green House actually has come up with some new ideas for Sticks in a Jar & I’m really excited to make some more. In fact…I already have a few in mind! What do you think of this idea? What kind of Stick in a Jar ideas would you create?
