I “Cerealsy”

Each night before I go to bed, I lay out my husband's breakfast. I put a box of his favorite cereal out with a spoon, bowl and a piece of fruit.

I decided his breakfast needed a little bit more  L O V E.  So, I created a tag, I "Cerealsy" Love You and attached it to his favorite cereal box.

Surprise your spouse with their favorite cereal by downloading the tag, I "Cerealsy" Love You!

I love to go on dates with my husband, however, I also love to have Family Date Night!  We try to do this at least once a month.  My kids will do or help with just about anything to earn this special night.

At the beginning of the week, I give each child an envelope. Then, they get to decorate and write their name on the envelope. This envelope is like a wallet. Throughout the week, I give my kids tickets each time they are helpful or do their chores.

Soda Pop Gift Tags

Lunchtime at my house is down right boring!  I never feel like there are a lot of options out there. Each day while packing my husband's lunch, I am stumped how to make it exciting.   His lunches are in need of serious attention! So, for one week I included a soda pop with a fun tag in his lunch bag.

Each day my husband sent a text message thanking me for the special drink and note. This simple idea went a long way and made my husband's lunches a little...

Who wants to get an early start on preparing a Valentine's Day gift?  Today we have a fun, meaningful gift idea!  The name of this gift idea is called, "The ABC's of Us."  For each letter of the alphabet, you get to write a fun memory.
For the letter "F" I decided to write about our "First House." I had a lot of fun remembering and trying to come up with an idea for each letter.
