Date Box Swap Reveal and Link Up

I seriously can't believe that we are more than halfway through August! Things have been quiet around here since we bought our first home and have been working to get it organized and such before Brad goes back to work. But I just had to jump in and tell you about the amazing experience I had with the Date Box Swap! This was seriously such a fun box swap and one that I will definitely be organizing again!

If you didn't catch the original post, the Date Box Swap was a chance for ladies to be paired up with a fellow wifey pen pal, get to know each other over the course of a couple of months, and then send each other a date in the mail. And I have to tell you, I had an absolutely BLAST!



I was able to have two amazing wifey partners. I think that the most fun part of the entire thing was being able to get to know them and plan a date that I thought they would really enjoy. But truth be told, it was also so much fun wondering what they would send and then getting those fun packages in the mail! Opening a date night that was specifically planned for you is definitely fun! 

One of my partners, Lindsay, sent such a fun date for new home owners! I had told her that we were just moved in to our new house and kind of overwhelmed with how much more space we had to fill compared to our last place. She sent the most amazing smelling candle as well as a gift card for us to go on a date shopping for home decor. What a fun date idea! We've had such much fun browsing Pinterest and coming up with plans for how to fill our space. That is going to be one amazing date!


My other partner, Kenzi from The HatMaker's Suitcase put so much effort into one of the most fun dates we have been on! She knew that we would be moving back home and have access to babysitters again, so she sent us on a mystery date! He box included 4 sealed envelopes and two sealed gifts along with instructions for how to proceed with the date. It was such a blast! We did this date last weekend and had such a good time opening each envelope and seeing where we would go next. We were supposed to start out at the library, but it was unfortunately closed by the time we got started. So instead we improvised a little and did that step from home. From there, Kenzi sent us to a romantic location with a romantic task, dinner at P.F. Chang's (it's like she read Brad's mind... he's been craving that for ages), and then to dessert. The most fun was revealing the next location and having everything be a total mystery! Seriously so fun!




I was so grateful to both of my partners for sending me the most amazing dates. I loved this swap, because it totally helped get us out of a Date Night rut and doing things that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. 

I can't wait to see what all of you received in your Date Boxes! So it's time to link up any blog posts about the swap below! If you don't blog, make sure to post pictures of your box on social media using #DateBoxSwap so that we can see all of your goodies!

  1. Oh what thoughtful dates they both sent! I love the idea of a mystery date but usually it's only a mystery to one of the spouses. How great that it was all a surprise for both of you! I really enjoyed getting to know my partner and spoiling her and her hubby with a fun date.
