I don’t know about you, but life sure is busy. Sometimes I forget to eat a meal. Sometimes I’m just far too tired to brush my teeth before bed. And sometimes I forget to tell the beau how much he means to me; always by my side throughout my crazy journey.
Thursday night I made the threat that we wouldn’t go to bed until the apartment was spotless- and I meant it. Until I saw the trailer for Blackfish and decided that we’d have date night instead. Within an hour, dinner was ordered, forks were found and we were having an in-car picnic in the parking lot of Spectrum. I couldn’t help but to think how much I love the beau’s willingness to join in on my spontaneity; sometimes the best times are unplanned.
But sometimes when things are so hectic, we need to remember to plan time for us. I’ve taken a step to compromise with him (lover of movies, me not so much) and plan fifteen movie dates: the Palace Theater’s classic movie series!
- October 21: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
- October 28: Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds
- November 11: 3 Stooges Film Festival
- November 18: An American In Paris
- December 16: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- December 20: It’s a Wonderful Life
- December 26: The Muppet Movie
- January 20: Back to the Future
- February 10: Roman Holiday
- February 24: Labyrinth
- March 10: West Side Story
- March 24: Monty Python’s Life of Brian
- April 7: The Odd Couple
- April 21: The Blues Brothers
- May 19: Pulp Fiction
For the entire series, tickets were $37.50 through the box office and they send you a ticket for each film; I’m a lover of ticket stubs! If you’re looking to just catch a couple nights, tickets are just $5 and start at 7pm unless stated otherwise. I’ve only see one out of the fifteen, so I have a lot to look forward to! I’m excited to dress up each Monday and know that I have time carved out to just hang out with him.
We’ve also scored some free tickets to a couple upcoming shows local at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and although they aren’t 100% familiar to me, I’m going to make the best of it. How do you make time for your loved one? What’s your ideal date night?
And p.s… the apartment is still a mess.
