Sassy Suggestion: Inner Child Date

A suggestion from one of our readers: The Inner Child Date!

When Robyn emailed us to let us know about her fantastic date, I told her that she could be our *honorary* 13th Diva!  Super creative with lots of fun details and so inexpensive that anybody could do this one!  :)  She used one of the diva's date as her inspiration, but changed it to make it her own.  Without further ado - here's Robyn:

After reading this entry, I decided to do one of my own.  I loved the idea of being a kid again, but I twisted this up...

Becoming Fireproof

Becoming Fireproof: marital advice worth reading.

Fireproof Your Marriage

Like many of you, my husband and I are movie fans! A.K.A "cuddle on the couch with a good flick after the kids are in bed fans." With the standards of Hollywood, it's not often that a movie comes out that actually is centered around morals and values faith, but I think it's a glorious event when it does happen, and I like to support those kind of film makers. So... I just wanted to mention just such a movie that my husband and I saw a while...

Couples Minute to Win It

Couples Minute to Win It group date.

Couples Minute to Win It Game

Have you seen this game on TV?!?! If you haven't, STOP everything. Go now. Seriously. (I'll wait for you...)

I have a secret love affair with game shows. It is my dying goal in life to be on one. I'm not even kidding. (Especially Jeopardy, but I'm still working up to that one! A few years back I submitted an audition tape to the Amazing Race...obviously, I didn't make it. BOO!) Anyhow...when NBC started Minute to Win It, my husband...

Hubby Highlights: Fresh Flowers

Hubby Highlights: Fresh roses idea.

The divas decided that we wanted a section on our blog where we could "highlight" the men in our lives.  I mean, they truly are the reason we started this whole thing!  :)  So - the "Hubby Highlights" will be dedicated to us talking about why we love our husbands or awesome things they may have done for us.   Basically, a celebration of the men we married.  I will jump-start it all by telling about something my husband recently did:

I came home after another...

Does Your Hubby Still Got It?

Does your spouse still got it?

You've Still Got IT!

I was thinking about a story today that my husband told me about a few years ago.

He was riding the subway one day and kept catching glances from a girl who was sitting across the way. He knew she was checking him out and hinting for him to come over and talk to him. Well, of course being the amazing, LOYAL, and honest person he is - he didn't give into any of those looks.

When he got home he told me the story and of course we just laughed...

Love Story: Corie and Jared

Love Story: Corie and Jared

I was sixteen years old and at the DMV with my mom. In line, two people ahead of me was the hottest guy I had ever seen in my life. I just kept staring at him.

I turned to my mom and said, "Check out that guy! He is so hot!" My mom said, "Yeah, he's cute!" I then said to my mom, "I think I will marry him!"

They called his name for pictures and I placed my name with his last name and it sounded so good!  A week later I found him again at my high school!

The Penny Jar

The Penny Jar intimacy idea for newlywed couples.

One of our readers, Mindi, sent in a super cute idea that we thought we should pass along!  I will let her take over:

"I had a friend tell me something fun they did and I adapted it a little to be fun for me and my husband. It's a penny jar.  Every time you "have-a-little-fun-in-the-bedroom", you put a penny in your jar.  We started it with the new year and our goal is to top the number next year."

"There's all kinds of variations, though.  If...

Bachelor/Bachelorette Premier Party

Bachelor/Bachelorette Premier party ideas

Bachelorette or Bachelor Premier Party

Oh the fun days of being a Bachelorette! Of course I would never want to be a Bachelorette again, especially after finding my most PERFECT Bachelor, but that's no reason why we can't root on those who are still single!

I'm an avid fan of the show "The Bachelorette/Bachelor" and the premiere is tomorrow night on ABC. I thought it would be so much fun to kick off the season by watching it all go down with a big group. This...
