Mailboxes for Love Notes

Mailboxes for love notes - a darling Valentine's Day mailbox idea.

I love the idea of decorating little tin mailboxes and displaying them in your home during the Valentine's holiday.
I decided we should have a little fun during this season of love & give "love letters" to each other!  First things first - each member of the family needed his/her own mailbox!

I found these cute little tin mailboxes from Target last year and quickly realized I was not the only one with this idea.  All the crafting blogs I read had the...

New Year’s Eve Party

The best New Year's Eve party ideas!

When I think of New Year's Eve, I think, "I hope I can stay awake long enough to see the ball drop this year!" Am I right, or am I right??! Ten years ago I would've been trying to decide which New Year's party to attend.  Here I am, five kids later and I've noticed that it's getting harder and harder to remember New Year's Eve. Much less, ring in the New Year at midnight. If you're anything like me, then 10PM is the new midnight! When ten o'clock strikes,...

Coupon Date night, inexpensive ways to still date your spouse!

With Christmas approaching my husband and I are trying to save every penny we can for all the expenses that the holidays bring.  Even though money is tight, that is no excuse to not have a weekly date night!  In an effort to keep things cheap, AND still be able to get out of the house and away from the kids, I came up with a coupon date night.  The idea is, you can only use coupons for the events of the evening. 
You know the "junk" mail you get every week...

A Sincere Apology

Sorry I Have Been A Jerk, A Sincere Apology for your spouse!

**An updated post with a free printable can be found HERE**
Let's all be honest here for a minute... When was the last time you told your spouse you were sorry???  And when was the last time that you know you really should have said sorry but ignored the urge and let it go, which either caused a bigger tiff between you and your spouse, or you both got over it eventually only leaving you more unaware of the issues that may arise in the future.
Well I can honestly say...
