Nate and Wendy's Love Story

Nate's story: "One night I was at a Jazz NBA basketball game, and during halftime I saw this super hot lady up on the jumbo tron and knew I had to meet her. So I found the section she was in and went over and introduced myself. She thought it was so cute and romantic that I was so determined to find her, things were bliss from day 1!" 
That was actually a story my husband told a friend of mine! He is good at thinking he is creative, but...

Dinner & Movie: Date Night

Date night movie date

This date was inspired by the new movie, perfectly titled: 'Date Night', starring Steve Carrel and Tina Fey. In my opinion these two stars were brilliantly cast for the leading roles in this film! Can I just say HILARIOUS! This is what you might refer to as a 'Dinner and Movie Date', but so much funner! Since you are planning on taking your spouse to see a movie, why not surprise him by using movie tickets! These tickets were created by fellew Diva, Tara, but modified...

Let’s Grow Old Together!

Grow old together with your spouse.

I had a conversation with some other teachers today that rather stuck with me...and made me a little sad!   It also made me think...and I thought I would share the experience as well as a few thoughts with all of you.

When asked about my weekend plans, I shared a little about the date I was planning for my husband.  A few of the teachers exclaimed things like, "That sounds like so much fun!" and  "He's going to LOVE it!"

A few others mentioned that they...

What’s Your Love Language?

The Five Love Languages

Jason and I have read many marriage books in our short 4 years together. One book that I absolutely love and refer back to ALL the time is called 'The Five Love Languages' by Gary Chapman.

Jason's Love Language is Words of Affirmation, which I regrettably do not do enough. Thanks to the Dating Divas I am getting lots of ideas on how...

Caribbean beach themed date night idea.

Okay since it is still pretty cold here in Utah,(Although really nice the past few days)I decided to spice things up a bit and plan a date with a Caribbean Island feel.

Since I have two babies at home, I just used a bath pirate ship toy and used blue flavored Hawaiian punch to dye the water. I am sure...
