This week we’re Looking at the Letter “L” for our Alphabet Date Series, and what a fun Letter it is! We’ve added a variety of ideas – some are free and some are moderate or more expensive in cost. We do this because there are many in different seasons of life, and also, you may be celebrating a special event and want to go all out for it. So, please use the ideas that work for you! If you have any more ideas, please feel free to add to our list using the Comment feature.
Laughter – Plan an evening to watch the funny part of your favorite movies. You can even do this using You Tube.
Lunch – Enjoy a lunch date together. Make it a lakefront picnic to add another “L” to the date. You could serve “lasagna”. For Orlando locals consider beautiful Lake Lily in Maitland.
Lazy Afternoon – Plan to spend an afternoon doing nothing together, but Lounging around.
Limbo – Play this tropical game seeing how “Low” you can go! For fun do this during your Romantic Luau for Two (see Food section).
Lather – Wash each others hair and have fun lathering it up!
Latin food is not only spicy, but can be very romantic. In Orlando check out the Samba Room.
Louisianna – Celebrate this great state! Cajun food is always a treat. Make your own or go out to a specialty restaurant like Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Co. Then, watch Forrest Gump.
Lobster – Incorporate this shell fish into your romantic evening. Lobster Bisque is a cheaper alternative.
Luau for Two – Plan one in your own home or go to one at a nearby restaurant. For Hawaiian recipes click here. For inexpensive decorations visit your local Party Store. You might want to add a DVD of Hawaii too!
Lemonade – Have iced-cold lemonade ready for your spouse when they least expect it. You could use this to announce your “L” date night plans.
“L” Special Touches:
Lingering Look – Take a long look in each others eyes for 5 minutes thinking of all the things you love about them and how thankful you are to the Lord for the gift of their love. This may sound corny at first, but how often do we pause and take time to really look into our lover’s eyes. It will surprise you the emotion this evokes.
Flowers: Lillies, Lavendar (try buying your wife a lavendar candle, body wash or linen spray), lily of the valley, lilac.
List of Love – Write a list of all the things you love about your spouse.
Lips – Need we say more?
Lingerie – Buy your wife something new 0r surprise your husband with something you already have.
Labor Day – This weekend is Labor Day, so we’ve added some special ideas in the Husbands Only and Wives Only Rooms.
planning for the Luau for our L date later this month. Going to make Hawaiian chicken kabobs and coconut cookies, serve them on the sand (colored blanket) in our living room, play a little Wii Vacation Isle Beach Party and finally hit the surf (hot tub). I think what we will be competing for during the Wii time is who goes first on the post surf suntan oil rub down. If anyone has any other luau beach party ideas please share!
We actually put this off until just last saturday night. It went great. I gave H the invite and he said that he had been missing summer and looking forward to it so much lately that the luau theme was perfect. We had a ball…I won the first back rub which turned into the only back rub. The alphabet date theme has been a true inspiration for us. Thank you Debi and Tom!
We are so glad you’re finding the alphabet dates fun!
A luau in the winter sounds perfect to us! Thanks for sharing!
