How To Get Your Hubby “On Board”

How you can get your hubby on board with date night

Making Date Night Happen...
This is one question that we get a LOT! "How do you make date night happen when your spouse isn't totally on board?' For a LOT of couples, date nights were a lot easier and more romantic before marriage. But for some reason, after marriage they seem to take a back seat. There are a lot of reasons why that happens (jobs, kids, finances, and... well, just real life.) But the real question is- how do you make it better? How do you make your...

Christmas Treat Ideas

Christmas treat ideas that are funny and easy to put together.

Christmas Treats for the Sweet
One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is cooking up treats for all of our friends, neighbors, and family members. It can get pretty insane some years and our list seems to grow exponentially the older we get. I've also noticed in the past few years that it's getting harder and harder to make my treats look cute and festive because I'm always down to the wire on getting them out the door! So THIS year I decided to reel...

“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...

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...

Stud Muffin

Stud Muffin idea for him.

My recent project for my husband was inspired by this bib!

As I was feeding my studly little man - who was wearing this bib - the other day, I thought, "My husband's a stud muffin, too!"
So on the first day of his second year of grad school, I left this out on the table before he rushed out the door.

He appreciated it and it was SUPER easy to do. All I did was create a little logo in photoshop, printed it out, cut, and taped a skewer to the back. Stick...

Prescription for Fun

Prescription For Fun!

A Prescription for Fun

Everyone needs a little fun with their spouse. I have a prescription for you on how to have more fun. Here's how to fill the order...

First, grab an unused small pill bottle.
If you have an old empty one from a previous prescription you can use that. Or you can go to your local pharmacy and ask to buy a new one. If you are lucky like me, they'll give you a whole bag full for free!

Next, go to your stash of scrapbook paper...

Dating Advice for All The Single Ladies...

I recently did a guest post on a CUTE blog called, Exposing the Drapes to My 20's.  Jessica is SUCH a doll!!  When she asked us to do something for the "single ladies"....we loved the idea!  Heck, we were ALL single at one point...and some of us were QUITE the playas (sorry....can't tell ya who...) and some of us sure dated the players!!  :)   I then realized that we probably have some *single* readers who would ALSO...
