10 Ways to Prepare for a Date Night


Life can get busy as a mom and wife, but don’t let the demands of each day keep you from enjoying your time with your husband! It’s important to schedule regular date nights to keep your love life romantic. It’s too easy to get caught up in taking care of the children day in and day out instead of taking care of the relationship. Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years, and before you know it, you may realize that your relationship is a bit neglected. Don’t let the months go by without planning for regular date nights out.  Here are 10 ways you can prepare for a date night with your husband!

10 Ways to Prepare for a Date Night

Plan the Date and Find a Babysitter – If you have children, you’ll want to secure a babysitter at least a week in advance or earlier. If you wait until the last minute, you may not have luck finding an available babysitter.

Ways to Prepare for a Date Night

Look and Feel Good – The week of your scheduled date, be sure to take good care of yourself. Eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water, and get plenty of sleep.

Pick Out a Pretty Outfit – Plan out your outfit ahead of time and make sure it fits properly and feels good on. The last thing you want is to waste time on date night trying on outfit after outfit and getting discouraged because it doesn’t fit or look the way you thought it would. Don’t forget about the accessories and shoes!

Get Clean – Take a nice bubble bath the day of your date or a long shower. Wash your hair well with a quality shampoo or conditioner and relax during this time. Use a body wash to smell extra fresh.

Brush Your Teeth and Floss – Brush your teeth well and floss. You may be sharing a few kisses during date night and you’ll want to have a fresh breath! Gargle with mouthwash for extra freshness!

Go Light on the Makeup – Save time on date night by going light and natural on the make up. Use the basics to feel pretty including foundation, a little blush, eyeliner, and mascara. Make sure you moisturize well first!


Give Yourself a Manicure and Pedicure – Trim your fingernails and toenails and coat with a fresh coat of nail polish.

Smell Good – Spritz yourself with your favorite perfume before your night out so that you’ll be smelling your very best and don’t leave home without putting on deodorant!

Ways to Prepare for a Date Night

Listen to Upbeat Music – While getting dressed, listen to upbeat music to help put you in the mood for the night. Dance around and visualize yourself having the time of your life on your date.

Rest Up! – If you’ve had the kids all day long and your energy levels are low, you’ll need energy to be able to enjoy your date and stay out late. Take an early nap if you can or go to bed early the night before so that you have plenty of energy on your date.

    I use them for days I am beyond exhausted from working 10 hours and then have a full night of things to do.

  2. says

    I love that this does work to give added energy. I have only tried it a couple of times in the past. It is a great way to help you get things done when that slump in the afternoon comes around.

  3. Kathy C. says

    I haven’t tried it yet but think I’ll see if I can’t find some of the pink lemonade to help when I’m keeping my 2 yr. old grandson for 10 days. I think I’ll need all of the energy I can get!

  4. Brutus Duffy says

    One of my co-workers is on maternity leave and others are on vacation. I am puttling extra and longer shifts so I use 5 Hou Energy to keep me going.

  5. Kristen says

    I’m actually entering this for my hubby…he says he can’t function without this stuff lol. Hope he shares though, because I know I could use some energy to keep up with the kids now that it’s summer!

  6. Cryssie Cherry says

    Well, I don’t have a job that I go to everyday. My job is in the house with my 3 sons. I wake up exhausted every morning from the endless night shifts with the baby. If I won, I would drink one every morning to give me that boost I need to be alert and not cranky!


    This summer i have my 5 year old niece! I have work, school, and date nights with my fiance. My niece still has summer school and piano class, so it gets pretty busy. I use 5 hour energy to keep me going all day without the crash at the end of the day!

  8. wen budro says

    I love 5 hour energy shots. About mid-morning, I drink one and have the energy to get a lot of my gardening chores done.

  9. Ronda says

    I use it mid morning to keep my with my household chores, kids and running around for my husbands business. After putting in 18 – 20 hours a day, most days I really need this.

  10. megan n says

    when the weather gets warm, all my 5 little one want to do is run around and play outside. by the middle of the day, i am pooped. i could definitely use a 5 hour energy about then.

  11. Kristi Sorg says

    I have 9 kids who keep me going all day, all summer long. I could use these mid-day when i am tuckered out!

  12. Nesca Crespo says

    I know about the drink but I have never tried them before. I never have tasted an energy shot that I could get into. I really am more of a big fan of Red Bull because it tastes so good. These look like they might taste good though.

  13. Em says

    Although a spa day is nice, who has the time? Just a long hot shower and bit of makeup (and a little black dress work wonders. )

  14. says

    I haven’t tried them yet. Maybe I’ll get one the next time I go shopping. Definitely could use a boost in energy chasing after 3 kids. Hope I win!

  15. Melissa Teears says

    I use 5 hour energy to get through a hot day at work so I can cone hone and plat with my son.

  16. chelsie fletcher says

    In the comment section of this post, tells us how you use 5-hour ENERGY® products to keep up with your busy summer days/ I just like the way it tastes lol 😉

  17. laura ari says

    I’d use them in place of my morning coffee on days when I have to be up and out the door early!

  18. jennifer says

    My husband is gone with work all the time, so I am alone raising my children 90% of the time and I love these for having to keep up with everything!

  19. Lacey J says

    I would use these for outings with the kids! We’ve been taking day trips every day with our three little ones to keep them busy this summer, and I could use a boost mid afternoon most days

  20. says

    I use them to keep up with my daughter who, I swear siphons all of my energy. And to keep up with my husband and his hectic job and my own job! Along with all the summer fun we want to have, sometimes I need an extra shot of energy!

  21. Julie Lee says

    I haven’t used it yet but I think I’d use it when I have some projects to work on after the kiddos go to bed!

  22. leslie roberts says

    After my morning coffee and my energy starts to drain, I take a quick 5 hr energy shot and I’m full of pep and ready to keep on a going.

  23. Nadene Adams says

    5 hour energy shots are great for getting going in the morning and on the long drive to the beach in the summer.

  24. Sarah says

    When I work long shifts and have to look at all the sunshine and happiness outside my window, I need a pick me up to do the second half of my shift. They are just what the doctor ordered!

  25. Andrew Molloy says

    I’m going to go looking for those other flavors! I didn’t realize it came in so many flavors!

  26. amanda whitley says

    i need to give them to my husband so he has enough energy to wake up at dawn with me and go on family outings.

  27. Silvia Fugate says

    I have not tried these yet but since I am working on being able to run 5 miles. I would use them before going out for a run for that extra boost of energy!

  28. Melissa Sparks says

    I love 5 Hour Energy shots because I am A Mother of 2 very active sons, and I work nights clenaing. So I’m always on the go..

  29. April Wooff says

    I would use it to keep up with my one year old grandson. I know now why I had children in my twenties. LOL

  30. brittany marie thompson says

    I grab 5-hour ENERGY shot before heading off to work 12 hour shifts. They are lifesavers.

  31. Amy Honious says

    I personally do not use these, but I have a son who is a truck driver that uses it and another son who is away at college with a full time job that uses them also. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  32. T.h.Ransom says

    I work nights so 5hr Energy helps to give me extra energy to survive the summer days with the kids (between naps)

  33. Nichole says

    I haven’t used them before but if I win, I think I would use them on the days that I don’t sleep well which are becoming more and more frequent. Thank you!

  34. Patrycja Chudziak says

    I use it everyday to keep up with my very active 5 yr old, my dog, the laundry, housework, cooking and the long hours in the park.

  35. Trista says

    Now that it is time to get my classroom back in order for the new school year this would be a great help! Although they say teachers get the summer off – I have been in my classroom decorating and getting everything in order since July 10th!

  36. amanda says

    well its hay season right now and for 4 nights ina row i was up until 3 am trying to cut bale and haul the hay. i did use a 5 hour energy and it would have been miserable without it
