I’d “Chews” You!

I'd Chews You back-to-school printable gift idea.

I am sure I have mentioned on our website before that we are BACK in school.  My husband decided to go back to school to follow his dreams and I am gladly supporting him in this endeavor.  This past week was more stressful than normal....for both of us.  I watched my sweetheart study from the crack of dawn until the wee hours in the morning as he prepared for a very, VERY important exam.  He was worrying about remembering everything and I was worrying about his stress...

Ice Clues Date Night

Chill out tonight with this Ice Date Night idea

I was brainstorming late one night and I started  thinking about ice. Thats when I decided to create an "Ice Date" for my husband and I to go on. The next day I created an invite to the date, along with 6 clues that would take us through our night. The best part was that only part of our date was out of the house, while the rest of our date was at home. My dad would watch the kids while we went out and put them to bed before we got home, so we could continue...

“ROSE”-mantic Scavenger Hunt

"Rose"-mantic Scavenger Hunt date night idea.

Rose Themed Scavenger Hunt
Getting my husband to plan a date is not an easy thing.  In fact, I would just rather plan it most of the time to make sure we have a fun date night.  He is a very busy man and does so much to support our family and planning a really fun date THIS great takes a lot of time.  So I asked him straight up if he would be willing to plan one and he said yes!  That being said, I knew he would need time to plan it, so together we decided that...

St. Patrick’s Day Luck

This year I went to the store and bought some Lucky Charms. I also bought some other great things like green and gold candy and a shirt for my man  {...and a shirt for me!}.

So I decided to write a tag out saying, 'I am so "Lucky" to have you in my life'....
