The Christmas Service Date

A Christmas service date at the food bank.

PART I - Service
'Tis the season for giving and what better way than to make a date out of it? My husband and I really have been in the spirit of giving this year especially, so when my husband suggested this date I thought it was a fantastic idea! (Yes, this was my husband's idea.) Which just goes to show that he has a really big heart and enjoys serving others. We decided to contact our local food bank and sign up to do some volunteer work. We double-dated...

Christmas Treat Ideas

Christmas treat ideas that are funny and easy to put together.

Christmas Treats for the Sweet
One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is cooking up treats for all of our friends, neighbors, and family members. It can get pretty insane some years and our list seems to grow exponentially the older we get. I've also noticed in the past few years that it's getting harder and harder to make my treats look cute and festive because I'm always down to the wire on getting them out the door! So THIS year I decided to reel...

Spooktacular Halloween Meal

Spooktacular good meal recipes for Halloween family dinner

White Chicken Chili and Pumpkin Passion Dessert

When I think about Halloween and food. I really think about comfort food. It's getting cold outside and fall has begun. Now that I have children to take out trick-or-treating, I tend to lean more toward recipes that are simple, somewhat healthy and are still considered comfort food. A little something to warm me up from the inside out. A friend of mine shared this White Chicken Chili recipe with me a few years ago...

More Than Just PJs

Not just a pair of PJs!

I have never been the type of person to spend lots of money on my pajamas.  I will buy a good pair every decade - otherwise I just sleep in whatever is lying around.  I really haven't cared because I'm just sleeping in them.  Right?  Er... maybe I should have rethought this one a very long time ago.

 

While at our Diva's Retreat in St. George, Utah, cute Kiirsten put on a pair of the most adorable pajamas that I have ever seen.  I loved them from the...

A Taste of India Date

A Taste of India Date Night Theme

India Themed Date Night Idea
My husband loves India cuisine, so in planning this date I really wanted to make it a night all about India. Since I love to do things on a grand scale, I included 3 other couples and conveniently they all love India cuisine as well. You can do this as a couple or a group date. The plus side to doing it as a group is you'll have a wider variety of food and it will help cut the cost all around.
