SO, for Valentine's Day, I made a resolution to plan a surprise date each month this year! I absolutely love reading those marriage and dating blogs, and since all I am doing is working, I figured I have enough time to plan some fun dates for me and my hubby! This is my first go at it:
Dahl and I have 2 Starving Students Cards. [For those of you who don't know, if you are a student, you can pay about $30 (or $40 for 2 when they are on sale at the school, which is what we did.. I might be like $10 off, I can't remember), and you get a paper with TONS of little deals on them. According to the card, it has $7603 in total value, and $976 in free stuff.]
Some things on the card are absolutely free- no purchase necessary, so I have always wanted to go on a "free date", where we just go get all the free food on the card, so that is what I planned. I looked up the location and came up with a list of 10 places that would be fun, and put them in order so we could drive in basically a straight line through them. This is my invitation I gave to Dahl (See if you can guess what the clues mean- some have multiple clues to help you if you get stuck on the first one!):
You’re invited… to a Free Food Date!!
That’s Right… Free!!

Dahl was super good at it! It only took him a couple minutes and clues to get all of them! (I married a smart one :) )
We only ended up going to five of these fun places- and that was PLENTY of food! The date began in the late morning, and we had a Groupon that was about to expire, so first we went to the Awful Waffle:
It was super yummy!
Then, for the most money we spent all day, we went to the dollar theater to see Adventures of TinTin!
$2.50 baby :)
Then, we moved onto the free food clues for a late lunch!
At Pita Pit, we each got a free cookie!
At Beto's we each got a drink- one pina, one horchata!
At Juice Press we each got a free 12 oz smoothie!
It was SO much fun!! Dahl thought the hints were way cool and it's kind of exciting to go to a bunch of places and never have to get out your credit card :) We are definitely going to do it again to use the other freebies! If you have a Starving Student's card, this is an awesome way to have a cheap (or free!) date!
