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...

"Baby, It’s Cold Outside"

 

Have you felt the chill in the air? I decided we needed a NIGHT IN to off-set the cold because....Baby, It's Cold Outside!

I left my husband an invite and a new pair of gloves (since I had made him cut his others for our Halloween Costume.) This pair was on sale at Old Navy for $4, but you could easily find a cheaper pair at Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store. You could leave it with ANY warm clothing (hat, scarf, socks, etc.) or none at all!

Hubby Highlights:

My husband, Justin, is always good to show me the love! He always picks up my favorite candy when he goes to the store, and he's pretty good to do the dishes every night. However, I was so touched the other day to come home to this:

I had been at a dentist appointment all day (Which I do NOT enjoy! Darn root canal gone bad!) and he'd come home from school to watch our little guy - sacrificing precious study time. Justin then kept him while I was at a meeting that...

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...

Some “Mummy” Loves You

I think every Holiday is a reason to celebrate and Halloween is no exception. I think it's fun to surprise my husband and son with a little something on Halloween morning. It doesn't have to be expensive - get creative! Last year my husband got a Spider musical tie from the Dollar Store with his favorite pack of candy - classy, huh! This year, I decided to do a mummy theme.

For the card I used white card stock, black card stock, orange paper - whatever...

Iron Chef Date Night

Take the Iron Chef date night challenge.

We noticed a lot of our readers were asking us if our husbands ever planned any of the dates or did anything cute for us.....and we quickly realized that we weren't showing off the men who inspire us!!  We were already taking turns doing "Hubby Highlights" at least once a month but then one of the divas hit upon a brilliant idea!  Why not have our HUSBANDS on as Guest Bloggers??  Pretty brilliant, huh!   I am excited to "present" our very FIRST Diva Husband...

Stud Muffin

Stud Muffin idea for him.

My recent project for my husband was inspired by this bib!
As I was feeding my studly little man - who was wearing this bib - the other day, I thought, "My husband's a stud muffin, too!"
So on the first day of his second year of grad school, I left this out on the table before he rushed out the door.

He appreciated it and it was SUPER easy to do. All I did was create a little logo in photoshop, printed it out, cut, and taped a skewer to the back. Stick it...
