Date night? What's that?

Can't remember the last time you had a "real" honest-to-goodness date night? You're not alone. Life moves at a frenzied pace, and so often we get caught up in our routine that we forget to prioritize our significant other -- and our love life. Whether it's a dinner date with a kids-free discussion (which, let's face it, rarely happens), or a night in your pajamas with a fresh bag of popcorn, date nights are a good refresher on why you're together. And they don't have to be expensive -- check out these 101 Cheap Date Ideas »

We asked our beloved mom bloggers to share their favorite dates, and what made them special. As it turns out, every single one of them had a story to tell -- a night to remember, an adventure, a night full of laughter -- even one who went to a furniture store!

So what are you waiting for? Sneak a peek at an idea or two from one of our bloggers, grab your calendar (and your partner's), hire the date night babysitter and get back to dating!
