Sitcky Notes Heart

Post-It note printable Valentine's Day idea

Oh, how I love thee... let me POST the ways!Last week I was going through a box and came across a stack of sticky notes. Each one had a sweet message my husband had written to me while we were dating. He had my roommate let him in and secretly put them up all over my apartment while I was busy at work. Seeing these notes brought back a flood of great memories!

Touchdown! Football Date Night

Touchdown Football themed date idea

Football Date Night

Last week I was in the mall when I saw a sign in a shop window that read We Interrupt This Marriage For Football Season. It made me laugh and think about how much my own husband loves watching football... not to the point of 'interrupting our marriage' but he does like keeping up with the teams.  I thought it would be fun to surprise my husband and put together an easy date to go along with the next football game we watch together.  You can...

Christmas is such a wonderful time of year and I love the generous spirit it puts into all of our hearts. My family has a lot of fun Christmas traditions we have done year after year and my husband brought his own traditions into our marriage as well.

Dating with Cents of Style

One of the rare occasions that I will get dressed to the nines is for date night. Most days I am a jeans and t-shirt girl (er...okay, sometimes a sweats girl), but on date night, I want to look H-O-T-T hot!  A night out with my husband is that important to me!  Date night is an excuse to wear heels with jeans, a chance to perfect your makeup and hair style, accessorize your outfit, and look refined.
Whether it's a first date or you've been married for years, you...

Here's a second...
