    snapped up this idea and have been incorporating alphabet dates in with the others we have been going on since November. D sort of had me stumped but wanted to share what I came up with. Drive, Dimes, Destinations and Dares.

    We are going to get in the car with two sets of slips of paper. One destinations and one dares. We will pick one of each and the drive to that destination and do the dare. ie: Slow Dance, Buy your spouse something you think they could use for $1.50 or less, Dine for under 3:00 dollars each etc. I plan to include slips that say things like “steam up the windows” too. Destinations include: the library, the park, K Mart, the Dollar Store and some other local locales. Each of us will have a roll of dimes to use to buy the other dinner, dessert, and a drink. The goal here is not fancy but fun and challenging memory making.

    Roll the DICE before you head out to see how many places we will go to.

      Barbara – I LOVE it! This is what we’ve been hoping would happen – our posts inspire others to come up with their own additions to the alphabet series and share them with us. Thank you for taking the time to type this out in such detail. I’m sure your idea will be offering inspiration to someone else. Have a great time! And let us know how the rest of the alphabet is going. 🙂
