"Eat Pray Love" Movie Themed Date
Dinner and a movie is ALWAYS the "fall-back" date, right? If you get in a rut with your spouse....that is usually what the two of you will end up doing for date night. Well, as much as we would ALL like to be "super spouses" and have an amazingly creative date planned for every Friday night....the truth is....sometimes it's FUN to just kick back and enjoy a great flick with your spouse!

Christmas Gift For Her
Last year for Christmas I really didn't expect much. We had been trying not to spend a lot of money on each other, so I really went skimpy on my husband's gift. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year and my husband always does an amazing job of making me feel really special. Every year since we've been married he has been very sneaky about my gifts. Our first year he hid my gifts throughout our apartment and made me search for my...Continue Reading

The most memorable part of Christmas for me growing up was the amazing breakfast my mom would put together for us on Christmas morning. It was every kid's dream to wake up to a table full of delicious food. To have those smells emanate all throughout the house. This is a tradition that I want my husband and children to have as well. For my post this month I really wanted to share some recipes with you that are easy, delicious,...

'Tis the season for giving and what better way than to make a date out of it? My husband and I really have been in the spirit of giving this year especially, so when my husband suggested this date I thought it was a fantastic idea! (Yes, this was my husband's idea.) Which just goes to show that he has a really big heart and enjoys serving others. We decided to contact our local food bank and sign up to do some volunteer work. We double-dated...

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...
Who doesn't just love Thanksgiving? All of that yummy food...eating until you want to burst...pulling out those pregnant stretchy pants just like Joey did on that "Friends" episode - just so you can eat that much more. Lol. Okay, maybe we don't take it as seriously as Joey, but Thanksgiving is always memorable at my house. One thing is for certain, you can always count on my mom making an amazing meal. Ever since I have been married, me and the rest of the women...Continue Reading
We all know that with the holidays comes stress from trying to make everything perfect. Okay, maybe that is just me? But I really love to have everything come together just right so I will stress myself out about having everything perfect. Last year I changed everything about how I approached the holidays. I made some serious decisions that started with our Thanksgiving feast. I realized that our holiday traveling really did me in - so that was cut. I realized that being...Continue Reading
