April Date

12datesofChristmas

The First Date of Christmas:  January
The Second Date of Christmas:  February
The Third Date of Christmas:  March


The Fourth Date of Christmas

In March, I gave him a coupon book.  Half-way through the month, we switched months.  I took the coupon book back, shelved it, and gave him the April Date envelope.  Inside the envelope was money for us to attend a concert and the band we had planned on seeing was playing nearby that weekend and he wanted to go and there was no talking him out of it.  So, we went on the April Date in March and I would give him the coupon book back once April rolled around.  Yes, it's confusing.  

Well, the April Date sucked because he didn't use any of the coupons.  Epic fail.  And they were good coupons, too!  Some of them were so good, I'm not even going to tell you about them.  The point is, my creative efforts on the coupon book were wasted because sometimes men are men and they don't get it.  Lesson learned...

What? He didn't use the coupons? Crazy man! I still LOVE this idea! I might just have to steal it!

Oh darn!!! Maybe he can use some of them throughout the year still? Like only 1 coupon per two months or something? Spread the fun out?! ;) I gave my husband a coupon book as part of his 1 year anniversary gift.. I told them they all MUST be reedemed by our 2nd anniversary! LOL
