Black Friday

Yes, we have gathered together the best tips to make your Black Friday a success. Here they are...

Gather the ads on Thanksgiving Day.  Circle, cut, make a list, whatever it is that YOU need to do to be organized! Timing is everything! Arrange stores by opening time, from earliest to latest. I like to go through all the ads and make a list with the store, opening...

If you want to feel closer to...

Great

When James and I found out that I was pregnant, we were absolutely thrilled!  At about week 5, all-day nausea became a constant companion along with fatigue and migraine headaches.  Ah, the joys of the first trimester!  I know James felt incredibly frustrated on some days because he just didn't know how to help me feel better.  To keep us both focused on our growing sweet baby (and not on any unpleasant 1st trimester symptoms!), I planned this fun date.

The Anatomy of an

 
Imagine the following scenario:
You are a one woman wonder that has cleaned the house, folded laundry, and managed to whip up a healthy dinner for your family, all the while taking care of your children ages 3, 5, and 8.  After dinner, your husband sits down to unwind by watching the latest Sports Center.  You are absolutely exhausted and running through a mental list of what still needs to get done that night: a sink full of dirty dishes, walks for the...

It has been a HOT summer!  With temperatures well above 100 degrees in many parts of the country, this date night is the perfect cool treat for your sweetheart.  To set the scene, I drew inspiration from Corie's post: After Hours Ice Cream Party, which featured a wonderful invitation by One Charming Party.
I simply printed off the invitation and personalized it for an ice cream date for 2.  I also turned their adorable "Thank You" cards download into little love...

Boy and Girls Night Out

This date weekend is all about a “Boys Night Out” and a “Girls Night Out” with just the two of you.  Who says boys can only do boy things and that girls can only do girl things?  Whoever that was doesn’t have a clue, because this weekend we are going to show them that boys and girls can enjoy each other’s favorite night out activities.
Start off the weekend by shooting and cooking over the fire with your man enjoying some "BOY TIME" then snuggling...

Congratulatory

When I was pregnant last year it seemed as if my husband was the last to be taken care of and thought about. I wanted to do something quick, easy and simple just to let my husband know that I was thinking about him. I wanted him to know I DID love  him regardless of the much needed attention he had not been given during the past 9 months.

When packing for the hospital in preparation of the big day, I made sure to include a "Dad's" root beer and and straw with this...
