MY THOUGHTS:::

$10 Great Dates: Connecting Love, Marriage and Fun on a Budget by Heather and Peter Larson and Claudia and David Arp is a great resource for getting ideas for cheap dates when you are tired of doing the same old, same old. The book is set up into sections that offer date ideas in the ideas of Adventure, Out of Town, At Home, The Great Outdoors, Marriage Pick-Me-Up, Romantic, Seasonal, and Unique and Unusual great date ideas. There is something for everyone. My husband and I had fun going through the book and talking about what dates would work for us and which ones we just didn't think we would enjoy. There are several that we are planning on doing in the coming months and should be a ton of fun. 

If anything this book reminded us that we need to take time to date each other and to make time to focus on our marriage and not just on the day to day life of raising our children. I like that the authors included the idea along with what needs to be done before to set up your date, what are some things to do on your date, what are some things you could talk about on your date and what you can take away from your date. It is very comprehensive and goes beyond the norm that many couples fall into. 

I also like that they include a section on achieving childcare for low cost, although we follow most of the suggestions that they have. 

I really liked this book and will be referencing it in the future, especially since my husband and I have decided that we will make it a point to have at least 2 date nights a month. I am looking forward to implementing a few of their ideas and using the book as a springboard for coming up with our own date ideas.
