Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: Stuck on You (Feb. ’17)

The other night was Crated With Love date box night here in the Peck household. πŸ™‚ I’ll be honest: it’s lately been really hard for KP and I to manage to spend time together. He usually doesn’t get home until late, I often have to work online in the evenings when he is home, or he has to finish up work on his laptop. When we both actually do have a break before bed, we tend to turn on the tv…and either fall asleep on the couch or take our devices to bed with us and play games or surf online until we do. I know these are not the healthiest relationship habits, and it’s something we need to work on, but after long days it’s a habit we’ve unfortunately fallen into.

So I’m really glad that we’ve had a chance to try out so many of these date night subscription boxes because it’s “forced” us to actually set aside time together, lol. So please know that I don’t just recommend these boxes for other couples, but we actually use them ourselves.  Read more…

She also gives encouraging suggestions about ways her marriage in the military survives.  Read more…
