“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Date

Baby It's Cold Outside - a winter date night idea.

 

Have you felt the chill in the air? I decided we needed a NIGHT IN to off-set the cold because...

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

I left my husband an invite and a new pair of gloves (since I had made him cut his others for our Halloween Costume.) This pair was on sale at Old Navy for $4, but you could easily find a cheaper pair at Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store. You could leave it with ANY warm clothing (hat, scarf, socks, etc.) or none at all!

I wanted...

Family Fun: Candid Photoshoot

How to plan a candid family photo shoot!

A photo says a thousand words and freezes time for just one moment.

When was the last time you had family pictures taken?  At my house it has become a yearly tradition.  Every Fall we capture very special, extremely candid moments.  Some of my favorite photos end up being the ones we weren't even posing for!  How fun would it be to take this idea one step further by creating a family video. That is just what this inspirational blog did (love this)!...

DIY Flirty Apron Tutorial

Being a busy wife and mom, I tend to spent a decent amount of my time in the kitchen.  Let's be honest, when you're in the kitchen - your first thought isn't about your appearance, right?!?  You are focused on getting the meal prepped!!  Who knew that throwing on a SUPER cute apron would not only change the way you feel about yourself....BUT...it would be a "turn-on" to the hubby as well!?!   I have seen these types of cutesy aprons...

What’s In YOUR Wallet?

A quick and easy romantic idea: What's in your Wallet?

Wow, so I was looking at my husband's wallet about a month ago and decided that the pictures were old and definitely not my favorite choices. I was currently putting together Family Scrapbooks and I realized how easy it would be to help my hubby update his wallet at the same time! It would be easy and then the pictures would be ones that I loved. They are also pretty cheap!

So I went onto Shutterfly to finish my books and I made a new album. I placed all of my...

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...
