I am joining The YeYo Diaries and YUMMommy in her Romance Wednesday! It is an opppotunity to talk about the romantic things that you and your significant other are sharing!
Mr. Pancakes and i have been sharing some random romantic moments through movie date nights. It is important in marriage, whether newlyweds or married for years, keeping romance alive is imperative. And Team Pancakes keeps it alive regularly.
We have been having random movie date nights during the week which has been awesome and fun! If we see a good movie or a UFC fight (we bonded over this during my hospital visit), we will stop whatever we are doing, cuddle on the couch and have a movie date night.
When i was in the hospital, we spent about four hours watching UFC matches. This was so much fun (and bloody–i had to close my eyes a few times) and it really allowed us to bond over a male related activity that the man enjoyed.
Then one Tuesday night, Going the Distance was on some movie channel and we started to watch. We immediately related to this movie because we started off long distance. Athough it comes across as a girly movie, Mr. Pancakes enjoyed it because it had a lot of the guy humour he finds amusing! This movie night we did not go to bed until after 1AM.
Then another night, i was watching Love Happens and he joined me. He was actually making fun of the movie but then he got into it and we enjoyed a sappy romantic comedy together. After all, all our love stories are romantic comedies anyway!
Recently, we watched another Jennifer Aniston movie, The Break-Up. I mean, it was so random how we started watching that one. I was bored of HGTV and WeTV (which he doesn’t know why i love those channels) and was flipping the channels and came across the movie. He joined me after he saw the dinner scene when the brother starts singing. He thought that was hilarious! And he will say to me, “and babe on the kick drums!”–something silly like that! If you’ve watched the movie, you’ll know what i mean.
Then the other night we caught Grown-Ups. This was fun because it was a mundane Sunday night and we managed to make it a fun night, eating tostitos and enjoying each other’s company. Afterwards, he gave me a hug and said, “i really enjoy our impromtu movie nights!”
Spending these random movie nights together is romantic. There is a romantic element to the randomness when we can cuddle on the couch and just enjoy each other’s company. I am starting to realize that romantic moments does not have to be planned elaborately. It can be as random as stopping and watching a fun movie with your man on a Wednesday night. Or watching one of his guy shows with him. It’s all about the company during those random moments. Try sometime this week!
Or have you had any random romantic moments recently?
