Easy Like Sunday Morning …
Easy like Sunday morning – that was the theme for April’s Night in Boxes. Sundays are far from easy these days. Getting ready for church with a toddler on your hip makes getting there on time a challenge. Sundays are certainly much different now that I’m a parent.
Who am I kidding, every day of the week is!

My 16-month old still wants to nap in the morning, making it almost impossible to do anything – when we try and work around nap time, which doesn’t always pan out the way we hope. When I saw the theme for April’s box I was so excited to do it during her morning nap!
Once the little one was asleep, my husband and I got started on our big brunch! Night in Boxes sends you everything you need for a fun time of connecting with your husband or significant other!
Life gets in the way sometimes when you’re trying to nurture your relationship with your spouse, especially when you’re new parents. When a new baby comes along, romance tends to take a back seat. Night in Boxes gives you an opportunity to take your relationship off the back burner and make it front and center.

We started the morning by following the recipe guide on the Night in Boxes Website. They make it so easy by giving you a step-by-step. I love they give you a playlist to help set the mood! Some of the tunes on the playlist included some great ones like Maroon 5’s, Sunday Morning and Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson.
After brunch, we got started on the Date Itinerary. First up was a few games: a fill in the blank, crossword puzzle and dice game. We’ve always been gamers, from board games to Playstation and XBOX, we both love to be entertained by games!
Lastly, we did a mad libs, which was hilarious, and “10 Questions You Never Thought You’d Ask”. I absolutely loved the questions because in a world that is filled with so much distraction it’s so nice to sit and talk, and learn even more about each other.
We ended the date sipping our organic tea and using the essential oil wipes that were provided, what a perfect relaxing Sunday Morning! Just as we were winding down and taking our last sips of tea, our little lady woke up – talk about perfect timing!
