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...

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...

The WILD Jungle Safari Date

The WILD Jungle Safari Date Night

Happy, Happy Columbus Day! Today we are going to be doing our own exploring.  But don't you worry, we won't be going too far from home on this date. Instead, we'll use our surroundings to "explore the Wild Jungle!"

 I was pleasantly surprised when my inspiration for this date came from an unexpected source. One of YOU - our readers! When Stephanie wrote us, she was looking for "Diva Advice". She wanted suggestions on presenting her anniversary gift to...

At-Home Spa Ideas

An at-home spa date night idea

I have to start by telling you about one of Joseph and my favorite dates. We went to a spa to get a couple's massage, but it turned out to be more than I expected! I had never been to a professional spa before and it was amazing! We first got put in a sauna for 45 min, then to a relaxing love seat where we were served fresh fruit and Martinelli's while some romantic/relaxing music was playing in the background. Once we were done with that, we were then taken to do...

Black and Orange Halloween Party Idea

A Halloween Party for Families

I was SO excited to get this party started and share it with all of you! My husband and I love to entertain our family and friends. I don't know why, but we have since we've been married. Consider us the party people! {lol} And what a better excuse than a PRE-Halloween bash!?!
Okay, so the real purpose of our little party was actually to introduce our new babysitting co-op. I got tired of trying to find a babysitter every weekend...

Some “Mummy” Loves You

"Some Mummy Loves You'" A cute Halloween treat idea.

I think every Holiday is a reason to celebrate and Halloween is no exception. I think it's fun to surprise my husband and son with a little something on Halloween morning. It doesn't have to be expensive - get creative! Last year my husband got a Spider musical tie from the Dollar Store with his favorite pack of candy - classy, huh! This year, I decided to do a mummy theme.

For the card I used white card stock, black card stock, orange paper - whatever...

Rock ‘n’ Roll Romance Date

Rock 'n' Roll Romance Date

I just want to start this post with a little "background story".  For as long as I can remember I have LOVED Rock'n' Roll music. Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and AC/DC are just a few of my faves. I love it so much that I decided the guy I would marry would have to LOVE it too. Don't worry...that wasn't my only criteria. :) I just always knew that if we had the same taste in music that we would probably have lots to talk about as well as a lot of other things...
