The Dessert-Off Date

Dessert-off Date night

One of our readers, Alicia, recently sent us this email:

“Choose Your Own Adventure” Date

"Choose Your Own Adventure" theme date.

This date was inspired by the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books I used to read in Elementary School. I was a pretty outgoing kiddo….but I was also SUCH a bookworm! :) Seriously! Even now…when I pick up a book, the whole world disappears….and my husband has to say my name at least four times before he can get me to respond! :)

First the INVITE!! The wording was “fashioned” after the wording that is on the books….you can download the invite HERE...

Family Movie Night Date

Family movie night idea.

Shauna over at "My Mix of Six" has the CUTEST family of redheads!!  Her blog first caught my eye because my mom is also a redhead....which she passed down to a few of us!  Under my blonde highlights...I have some RED just dying to come thru!  AnYwAy....I really liked the "spin" Shauna put on their family movie night!

She bought tickets from Walmart and began giving them out to her kids for doing chores.  She was amazed at how quickly the chores were done!...

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...
