All The Single Ladies…

All the single ladies: advice on dating and marriage.

I recently did a guest post on a CUTE blog called, Exposing the Drapes to My 20's.  Jessica is SUCH a doll!!  When she asked us to do something for the "single ladies"....we loved the idea!  Heck, we were ALL single at one point...and some of us were QUITE the playas (sorry....can't tell ya who...) and some of us sure dated the players!!  :)   I then realized that we probably have some *single* readers who would ALSO love this advice....so I am "reposting"...

Can ‘O’ Dates

Can O' Dates - a create wedding gift!

Sugardoodle recently highlighted this idea on her Facebook Fan Page...which I thought was PERFECT for our blog!  My Creative Stirrings came up with THIS fun idea:

17 Fun and creative date night ideas.

I recently did a guest post on Simply Modern Mom in which I shared a "list" of SIX different types of dates you can do with your spouse (...or significant other...).  I thought I would also post it on OUR blog as a "recap" of our creative dates for all those readers who have recently joined us.   I guess you could call it, "What Kind Of Mood Are You In?" {WINK} Since we are such a diverse group of "divas" we all come up with completely different dates!  The list...

Sassy Suggestion: Inner Child Date

A suggestion from one of our readers: The Inner Child Date!

When Robyn emailed us to let us know about her fantastic date, I told her that she could be our *honorary* 13th Diva!  Super creative with lots of fun details and so inexpensive that anybody could do this one!  :)  She used one of the diva's date as her inspiration, but changed it to make it her own.  Without further ado - here's Robyn:

After reading this entry, I decided to do one of my own.  I loved the idea of being a kid again, but I twisted this up...

Hubby Highlights: Fresh Flowers

Hubby Highlights: Fresh roses idea.

The divas decided that we wanted a section on our blog where we could "highlight" the men in our lives.  I mean, they truly are the reason we started this whole thing!  :)  So - the "Hubby Highlights" will be dedicated to us talking about why we love our husbands or awesome things they may have done for us.   Basically, a celebration of the men we married.  I will jump-start it all by telling about something my husband recently did:

I came home after another...

Dessert-off Date night

One of our readers, Alicia, recently sent us this email:

My name is Alicia Voigts.  I ran across your blog link on LDS Chatter and I am in LOVE.  Such a GREAT blog... I wanted to share an idea that 3 of my girlfriends did with all 3 of our husbands.  We called it the "Dessert-Off" ...kinda like a "Bake-Off"... I guess you could say.  We girls sat around and chatted while the men went to the store to buy the items.

When they returned, they each...
