At-Home Date Night

Between having a baby and spending a lot of time at home over the last year and a half, Mike and I have become pretty accustomed to having date night at home. Don’t get me wrong, we love the occasional night out when we make the time to do it, but we often opt for pizza and a movie on the couch. While we’re both happy with a low-key night, I think it’s important (and fun!) to change up the routine and keep things interesting. Since we’re both homebodies and it’s just easier right now, we’ve been doing more at-home date nights. We usually spends the evening together once Liam is in bed, but for a date night, we try to be more intentional with our time. Sometimes it’s watching a movie on our screened-in porch, working on a project together, or simply putting our phones down to spend time with one another.

One of my favorite things to do for at-home date night is putting together a little “happy hour” snack board. When the weather is right, we can enjoy it on the porch and pretend like we’re being served appetizers at a restaurant…but in our lounge clothes 😉 For our last at-home date night, I ordered a few ingredients for a snack tray via my Walmart+ membership. I didn’t want to take time out of my workday to go to the store, so I placed my order and it was delivered to my doorstep for free in time for our evening together.

I’ve had my Walmart+ membership for almost a year and it has saved me quite a few times! From running out of the essentials, like milk, to having fresh groceries delivered upon returning home from a trip, it’s been a useful addition to our life!

With a Walmart+ membership, you can enjoy:

  • fresh, high-quality groceries & ingredients
  • free same-day delivery from your store – $35 order minimum; restrictions apply
  • Walmart’s everyday low prices – no markup, no hidden fees

My most recent Walmart+ membership order included some produce and savory bites to create our snack board. Everything was fresh, which is a huge factor for me when thinking about grocery delivery. I was also able to restock on some of Liam’s favorite snacks, so I saved myself a last-minute grocery run the next day.

While I will swoon over all the Pinterest-worthy charcuterie boards, I keep ours pretty simple! Some veggies + hummus, bite-sized fruit (especially if Liam is joining us!), and a few salty options. I also like to add some sliced salami and some sort of cheese!

Whether you’re looking to save time, save money, or just outsource a task that you don’t need to spend your time doing, a Walmart+ membership can do that for you. They offer a 15-day free trial, so you can try it for yourself here!

Thanks to Walmart+ for sponsoring this post.
