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

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...

Setting The Mood

Setting the mood with music.

My husband and I recently decided to choose two nights of the week and make it a "NO T.V." night. On our very first "NO T.V." night, we put the baby to bed and went about the night getting things done that we usually wouldn't do because we would be sitting in front of the T.V.

Well, to my surprise, I started hearing music play. My hubby had put a CD that he made for me when we were dating, into the CD Player. ALL love songs! It definitely set the mood for the...

A Magazine for Your Man

How to create a magazine for your spouse.

TODAY I am going to share a FABULOUS present I came up with this past July to celebrate another birthday for my man.  I wanted to make sure it was an extremely memorable one....so, of course, I had to come up with an amazing present, right!?!

I don't know about you...but for me - presents that come from the heart mean SOOO much more than anything you can buy from a store!  I would think up a great idea...and then decide it just wasn't heartfelt enough. ...
