To Do List –

Are you ready to cross chores off your list faster than you ever thought possible?  If your answer was ‘YES!!” then I have a great idea for you.  Our 'To Do" list was getting WAAAAAY too long, there were chores my husband and I were both procrastinating doing and it was starting to drive me nuts. I thought back to my childhood when my parents would give us $5 a week as allowance and how excited I was to earn that cash.  Using that as my model I came up...

Strip Horse Date Night

If you or your hubby LOVE basketball, you will LOVE this twist on the classic game of HORSE.  It's a not-so-innocent game, great for an intimate night in!

Once we had put the kids in bed and found...

However, most of these ideas would work for ANY of the Batman movies, so pull out an old classic if you like. So let's get to the ideas...to the batcave!

The Invite
Cut out a shape of a bat with...

That was exactly the place I was at when I planned this date! Life was crazy stressful, and my husband and I fiercely needed an escape. We had just...

Long Distance Birthday

I love how The Dating Divas help us {no matter what our situation} keep close to those we love. I am excited to contribute, as a guest blogger from sclifeasawife.blogspot.com

 
It's hard to be away from the one you love and it is especially hard when they are gone on a big event like a birthday or anniversary. My husband's brother went to Ghana, Africa in August and was away for his 20th birthday. Knowing how hard it is to be away from loved ones on your birthday,...
