Create Your Own Family Mission Statement
 
Our family had so much fun creating our own mission statement that I wanted to share this easy DIY Family Mission Statement with all of you!

Becoming a wife and a mother has always been something I've looked forward to. I've always wanted to be the wife that my husband loves to come home to, and the mom that is around to share all the big and little moments of my children's lives. I will be the first to admit I am not perfect BUT I don't expect to be and am happy to learn and grow each day along with my little family.

My husband and I created goals for ourselves back in January but we really wanted to have a focus for our family too. We decided to have a night dedicated to writing our very own Family Mission Statement. This was not a boring event- oh, no- we made it FUN!!

Family Mission Statement Magnet Words

My husband and I brainstormed a long list of phrases and words that could work in a DIY family mission statement. Then the fabulous designer Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes jazzed them up to make them so beautiful! She is seriously so talented {have you seen her free frozen party printables?!?} and I love everything she designs!

All you have to do is print out the 2 pages of words onto cardstock paper, cut them out, and then use Magnet Tape on the back of each of them.

Family Mission Statement Tools

Once you have your words cut out and ready, it is time to round up the family! I would HIGHLY recommend involving treats with this event just to increase the excitement. You can't go wrong with this S'more Fondue {wink!}

Explain to your family that your goal is to create a family mission statement. Put the magnetic words up and invite them to place the words and phrases into the order that they think is the most important. Talk together as a family about what each person thinks is important for YOUR family. This can bring up so many fun discussions about what your own family priorities are. Have your spouse or kids explain WHY they think certain phrases or words should be included.

Family Mission Statement Magnet Words Cut

Set aside any that don't work with your family, and feel free to add your own ideas on paper to make the list grow.  You could do this all in one evening like we did, or put them up on the fridge and let everyone move them around during the week to narrow down the choices to your top favorites.

DIY Family Mission Statement

Rather than just writing down your family mission statement and filing it away, Erin created these beautiful displays that you can print out and use as your own.

We titled them "Our Family" so that anyone can use them. I love how bright and easy to read they are, not only that they can make a gorgeous display in your home. It will be SO much easier to remember what your family mission statement goals and ideals are when you have it up on display, so make it beautiful! If you want to use one of these, you can find the link to print it for FREE down at the end of this post.

The family mission statement you created together may be different than the one we have here, so you can use these as models to create your own in Word or any other document OR you can use the magnet words and add your own family name as a title for them, like a collage.

Create Your Family Mission Statement

Simply changing the size and color of the fonts you use and adding a simple border will make a beautiful display of your family mission statement. Feel free to just add  your own family name to the top of this one. Just print it out as is, then using Word, type your own family name and send the paper through again. Easy!

Family Mission Statement Example

I love that we have our family mission statement up on display, and I also love that we took the time to create it together as a family. I am looking forward to seeing how my kids will use our family mission statement as a guide for their lives.

Create Your Own Family Mission Statement

I know you want to do this- so make a plan to do it this week! Enjoy creating your very own family mission statement together as a family and put it up on display as a reminder of your goals and priorities!

King of Cakes Date Night http://www.thedatingdivas.com/adventurous-amore/king-of-cakes-date-night/ http://www.thedatingdivas.com/adventurous-amore/king-of-cakes-date-night/#comments Mon, 21 Jul 2014 12:00:33 +0000 http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=55511 Cake Date Night Invitation

Design a Cake for Another Couple Date Night 

Last summer, my husband and I were hooked on watching TLC's show "Cake Boss". In this show, bakery owner Buddy Valastro takes unique cake requests to create ah-mazing works of art with cake. I am talking about  4 foot tall cakes, cakes with fireworks, cakes with moving pieces etc. INCREDIBLE! As my spouse and I watched Buddy and his crew whip out these masterpieces, in our minds we thought "we can do that" and wanted to give it a try! And that is how the

King of Cakes Date Night

was born!

[pinit count="horizontal" always-show-count="1" url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/?p=55511" image_url="http://www.thedatingdivas.com/wp-content/uploads/King-of-Cakes-pinterestpic.jpg" description="Fun Date Night Idea: get creative with cake-making for another couple on this date night! I know just who I want to do this with! www.TheDatingDivas.com"]

For this date night, you can start by inviting your most culinary-cultured friends for a cake decorating challenge using these adorable invitations! The invite challenges the other couple (or couples) to create a unique cake for another couple in the group and deliver the final product to the official date night on the designated day and time. 

Cake Date Night Invitation

Then, both you and your invitees will each fill out a cake request form PRIOR to the set date night and give it to another couple. This form is a chance to give the bakers inspiration for your cake or to request a certain type of cake you would like to have made for you.

Cake Decorating Date Night Design Form

For our group date night, both the men in the group had birthdays coming up so we determined that we would make a birthday cake for him and they would make one for my spouse! It worked out perfectly!

 Before the designated date night, take time to brainstorm with your spouse some of the ideas you have for the cake design. Use the design form from the other couple to focus your design.

Cake Decorating Date Night Idea Supplies

Now it is time to bake & decorate! Each couple makes their cake on their own time to bring to the date night. We had SO much fun in the kitchen together making a mess and laughing at our lack of skills. Somehow we truly believed that by watching hours of "Cake Boss" episodes that the skill would in someway be transmitted to us. Our vision was NOT at all what we pictured it to be in our heads (or what Buddy would have created!) BUT it was a BLAST being creative and trying a new skill!

Cake Decorating Date Night Cake

On the designated date night, each couple brings their final cakes to the delivery location (AKA the date night location) and reveals their works of art! Here is the cake that the other couple made for my husband. Isn't it amazing? My hubby is a master scuba diver and this cake highlighted his hobby perfectly!

Now the best part - who wants a piece of cake? Everyone can now enjoy their hard work as they eat their delicious cakes! Since the Valastro family on "Cake Boss" is Italian we also paired this date with some yummy lasagna and other Italian goodness as we watched some of our favorite Cake Boss episodes!

Couples Date Night Idea Exchange Idea

Here are the basics of how it works: Choose another couple to pair up with for this date night. Then, using our amazing printables, YOU plan a date night for THEM to enjoy and THEY plan a date night for YOU & your spouse to enjoy!

Fun right? Here is what you do . . .

PART I: Planning the Dates 

Pair up

Partner up with another couple (preferably someone with entirely different likes/dislikes than you). The benefit of choosing another couple with different interests than you, is that you are bound to try NEW things for date night and hopefully getting out of that date night rut! For our date night we paired up with my Brother and his girlfriend. My brother and I are VERY MUCH opposites so it was a perfect match!

Budget

Agree upon a mutual budget for the planned date nights. It just wouldn’t be fair if one couple planned a cheap-o date night and the other goes all out. Setting a price limit helps to keep things more even. For our date night we went with $30 and it was just right! I am thinking in the future, though, I would love to have a cheap-o challenge and plan each other’s date nights with NO cost! We have 50 Free Date Night Ideas to choose from right on this site!

Get Organized!

Couples Date Night Idea Exchange Printables

You betcha – we have ah-mazing printables for you to organize everything! You would need 1 Date Night Favorites Survey, 1 Date Night Planner Organizer, 1 page of activity description cards and oneset of labels PER couple. These are all provided in the link at the bottom of this page!  The printables were created by our Diva Designer Courtney at All Things Bright and Beautiful. She is amazing and can create anything you need for your special event! Stop by her site and see her stuff!

Get Inspired

Date Night Swap questionnaire printable

Separately, each couple fills out their own date night question prompts to get the ideas rolling. This is a chance to remember all of your favorite dates you and your spouse have done and dates you would want to do and more! The other couple WILL NOT see your answers. It is purely for you to get ideas and brainstorm.

Plot It Out

Date Night Swap organizer

Select which of your favorite date night activities you would want your friends to do for their date night. You can choose to create a date night of your absolutely favorite things, a date night you dream of doing, your typical date night, a date night you think is perfect for the other couple – it is totally up to you! Their date night fate is in YOUR hands! Fill out the Date Night Planner Printable with your final choices for the other couple’s date! This will help you organize everything, make sure you are in the budget range and review anything you will need to tell them before their date night.

Give Details

Date Night Swap instructions

Fill out the instruction cards explaining to your friends the details for each portion of the date. There are 4 categories we provided, but there are also blank labels so you can personalize it! Feel free to include any type of activity you want! Who says you have to dinner? Have a breakfast date instead! It is completely up to you! Remember to include details such as location address, dress code, items they might need, driving directions etc.

Seal the Deal

Date Night Swap envelopes

Place each of your instruction cards in an envelope and seal it! The couple will open the envelopes one by one on their date night so the surprises keep coming all night long!

Label It

Date Night Swap Envelope

Make sure to label the outside of the envelope with our corresponding printable labels. Tip: I printed my labels unto 8.5 x 11 sticker paper so that all I had to do was cut and attach. It looked extra nice and was so easy!

Special Instructions

Date Night Swap dessert envelope

Label on the outside of the envelope any special instructions they might need! This is where you can let them know if there is a certain order the envelopes are to be opened in or if any of the envelopes need to be opened by a certain time or at a certain location.

Exchange Envelopes

Date Night Swap exchange envelopes

Finally, before the designated date nights, exchange the envelopes. While the date night itself IS a surprise, make sure you let them know if there is anything that they will need to bring with them or have for the date night!

PART II: Date Night

When the designated Date Night arrives, open one of the envelopes that the other couple prepared for you and do what it says! After each envelope activity is completed – open another and another!

Most important – have an open mind to try whatever the couple planned for you and have fun with it!

Date Night Swap activity collage

We were sent for dinner at a new restaurant that we had never even heard of! They had authentic Italian Pizza and it was delicious! We now have a new favorite place!

Date Night Swap Activity Collage 2

We also were sent to ride a ferris wheel in the middle of a sporting goods store (who knew that even existed?!), bumper boats at an arcade and delicious snow cones at a place we had never been too!

This has absolutely been one of my favorite date night ideas EVER! Mostly because these activities were things that we either didn’t know about or would not have typically chosen to do ourselves! The surprise factor was fun and trying new things made our date night even more memorable!

BONUS: We had so much fun planning the other couple’s date night that in the process we started our own bucket list of new date nights WE want to do. In fact, we will definitely be going on the same date night we planned for the other couple. It sounded like so much fun!
