IDEAS OF THE MONTH
November 09, 2018
"I don’t need paradise because I found you. I don’t need dreams because I already have you."
GO HORSE RIDING!
There is nothing quite like the thrill of mounting a large, gorgeous quadruped for the first time to get the adrenaline pumping. There are reputable horse riding activity providers throughout South Africa that can get you up in the saddle no matter what your experience level may be. Newbies may want to stick to a few rounds in a nice, controlled paddock or beach environment, while seasoned riders could head out on a moonlight adventure or even opt for a cross-country endurance ride over the course of a weekend.
PUT ON YOUR DANCING SHOES!
Dancing is said to be a vertical expression of a horizontal desire and at Date Night Ideas we tend to agree. Turn up the romance by getting all up in each other’s space – you can professional lessons at a dancing studio in your area or you can simply put on some tunes and boogie in the living room.
COOK SOMETHING COMPLICATED!
We all have that one recipe that intimidates the living daylights out of us when it comes to performing in the kitchen – you know, those MasterChef creations that look like it took 20 people about a week to prepare. This week, up the ante in your home kitchen by finding a challenging recipe, spending some time as a couple breaking it down into steps, shopping for the ingredients and assembling your masterpiece.
DECLUTTER AND PLAY DRESS-UP!
This week your couple’s challenge is to throw out all those clothes you don’t wear anymore. It may sound like a chore, but you can make it fun. Open a bottle of wine, model a few ridiculous outmoded outfits and clean your closets of all the clothing items that are only taking up space. Best of all – you can donate it to a local charity to support a worthy cause.
CHALLENGE EACH OTHER TO LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE!
This week it’s time to lace up those tekkies, head out and find a sporting event that challenges you both to leave your comfort zone. Avid runners could try a nice off-road trail run, while less sporty couples could keep it simple and make a point of going for a walk every day after work. No matter what your fitness level may be, take this opportunity to inspire each other, push your boundaries and have fun while you’re at it.

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
––The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
