I Love You With My Whole Heart

Julie-Whole-Heart-Bowl-Photoslider

When I spotted this box of  Quaker Whole Heart Cereal at the store, I KNEW I had to buy it. How cute are these sweet little hearts?? The flavor of them is similar to Honey Nut Cheerios but the shape - SO FUN! I thought I could do a little something on the box to make it a cute love note for my husband. Lucky for me, one of our AMAZING new designers Brie with All Around Eye Candy knew exactly what to do. I am going to pass on her amazing talents to you with...

Menu Planning Date Night Idea

Menu Planning with your spouse for date night!
I LOVE getting my husband's help in the kitchen. There is something romantic about working side-by-side to create a delicious masterpiece. To be honest, when I cook alone, I’m doing it just to get it done. But, when my husband gets in the kitchen, he cooks to perfection (his second favorite channel after ESPN is the Food Network - in a way, cooking is a sport to him)! I love watching him cook! Whoa baby, it's attractive!...

Quick & Easy

With four kids and little time, I am always looking for a quick and easy way to spend a few quality moments with my husband at the end of the day. Most days, the only moments we get are after the children are asleep. :) By that time, I'm spent, exhausted from the day with the children, and not motivated to do anything that requires very much effort. That's why I love dessert dates! Dessert dates are easy to prepare ahead of time, and they hardly cost anything. For parents...
