  1. My husband and I are TERRIBLE at coming up with good date nights, let alone a good anniversary idea. Our 4 year anniversary is coming up on May 17th (with a baby boy due two weeks later), and I want to make sure it is the BEST ever! He will be deployed next year and will be I want to make this one EXTRA special. Thank you so much for this website and all your wonderful ideas.
    My husband and I have a GREAT marriage, and with these dating ideas it’ll make it even that much better. Thanks again!

  2. Haha…I have the Twister bedsheets. I found them on clearance years ago, just after I got married. I forgot all about them until we moved a month ago and I found them again. I knew I had to have them the second I saw them. 🙂

  3. My husband and I are celebrating our 17th anniversary on June 2. We also have 8 children. It has been a rocky marriage, but we are trying to strengthen it. I am trying to put together some great ideas to make the whole week special, since we have not ever really had a special anniversary before. I am lucky if we celebrate it at all. So, if anyone has any really great ideas, I would appreciate them. I am planning on giving him something fun each day. I purchased 2 cards and will give him those at some point. I am going to write up some reasons that I love him and attach some goodies. I was also thinking of doing 17 balloons with pictures/memories attached to them. Our 2 night honeymoon in our local motel was memorable because the best man/maid of honor team filled the room with balloons and I was thrown from the door onto the bed as my husband tripped on balloons. So, I was thinking of doing something like that to our bedroom as well.

    1. Hi Jessica! You can find them on Amazon, it’s linked up for ya if you click on the word “Pheromones” on #87. Hope that helps, you’ll love it!

  4. Hi Carly,

    I just called around to several different salons and found one that was doing a promotion. You can find coupons on groupon every now and then, or ask around from friends on your FB to see if they know of any stylists that work from home (a lot of times they are WAY cheaper than paying for an up-do in a salon.) Hope that helps!
