You all know the saying “April showers bring May flowers”…but it’s still depressing to look out your window and see mostly rain (or snow) for a month. What’s a rained-in newlywed couple to do? We’ve compiled a list of fun rainy-day activities for you and your spouse. Try one or more to feel happier the next time the weatherman is calling for a storm.
Have a Classic Movie Marathon – Cuddle up on the couch and watch a piece of cinema history like Casablanca or Roman Holiday. You could pick a particular actor/actress and watch a series of their movies. Who cares if it’s raining when you’re transported into another time right along with your hubby.
Make Something Fabulous – Take your rainy day as inspiration to make something gourmet. As you go through the steps of a more complicated recipe you can anticipate an amazing meal with your partner. Consider sending him out for an interesting bottle of wine and/or dessert that will pair well with your menu and then enjoy!
Play a Board Game– Dig around your house for some games to play inside or take a trip to Target to pick up some of your childhood favorites. You can swap stories about epic Monopoly battles with your siblings or how you learned to cheat at Candy Land.
Take a Shower – Speaking of showers, why not take one together? Add a few drops of aromatherapy oil to take your experience from ordinary to spa-like. You might even end up thinking of a few more Spring-inspired activities while you’re in there!
Plan a Party – Stuck at home while it rains? Turn your extra time into a theme party or BBQ for your friends and neighbors when the sun comes back out. Check out Real Simple for some fun BBQ recipes and ideas. Just the thought of grilling should make you feel sunnier.
