How To Get Your Laugh On With Your Spouse!

Here's a little background on this date: For April Fools Day this year, my husband thought it would be HILARIOUS to make me french toast with a generous layer of garlic salt on top. (Ugh!)

*sigh*Somebody (ME) needed to lighten...

My husband's 'Love Language' is words of affirmation and I thought a good way to show him how much I love him,...

Easter Jelly Bean Trail

The Jelly Bean Trail

My husband had a tradition in his family when he was little that Easter morning the Easter bunny would always leave a trail of jelly beans, toys, and candy leading to his Easter basket. The story is that the Easter bunny has a hole in the basket and things are dropping out as he goes. So to keep the tradition alive we started to do this last year for our daughter and she loved it. She was excited to see the jelly beans and then thrilled when they...

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.
