Treats for the Sweet
One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is cooking up treats for all of our friends, neighbors, and family members. It can get pretty insane some years and our list seems to grow exponentially the older we get. I've also noticed in the past few years that it's getting harder and harder to make my treats look cute and festive because I'm always down to the wire on getting them out the door! So THIS year I decided to reel...

Little Things

My husband, Jared, is pretty much amazing!  He has such a unique way of making me feel loved!
We have been married just under ten years and I have found that the smallest act of kindness from him.... ...mean the most to me.

Shortly after we were married,  I noticed a glass of water next to my bed on the nightstand each night.  Jared may think it is no big deal, but it is such a random act of thoughtfulness that I appreciate each night before bed.
Whenever...

The Spouse

Remember your very first sleepover? I sure do! I wore Hello Kitty pajamas and had a bright pink sleeping bag. Sleepovers use to be the ultimate reward for me.

It made me start to think… "Why not have a sleepover with my spouse?" Oh, I couldn’t wait to get this date started! I knew this date would work because it did not require a babysitter and would be inexpensive!

So first things first… I wanted my husband to get super excited about the fun...

Couples Halloween Costumes

I LOVE Halloween. The candy, the decorations, the parties, and the COSTUMES! I have always loved dressing up and it became even better when I got married and could pair up with my spouse! He doesn't always love my ideas, but he's pretty good to go with the flow. Most of the time.
While I was brainstorming this years costume, I thought it would be fun to see what the other Diva's have dressed up as before. They were good sports and consented to letting me share with...

10 Ways to Spook Your Husband… 

1. Put fake blood in your mouth and allow it to ooze out after your husband comes home from work.
2. Place fake spiders all over the house and allow them to be found by your man.
