Touchdown! Football Date Night

Football Date Night

[social_warfare]
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. ...

“Whose Line is it Anyway?” Date Night

Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Whose Line is it Anyway? is one of my husband and mine's favorite shows to watch. The things those improv actors come up with on the spot are amazing AND hilarious! If my husband or I are having a rough day - watching some of these episodes does the trick! It doesn't take long to crack a smile or get a chuckle. Sometimes we make a whole night of it!

The Day After Christmas

I've been doing a little research, and found that the most popular thing to do the day after Christmas is... you got it. RETURN GIFTS! For me, that just does NOT sound appealing. I want to bask in the after-Christmas glow a little by relaxing at home with my fam!
So this year, I thought, 'Why not do something useful with our time? Why not take advantage of these WONDERFUL lovey-dovey Christmas feelings??' and I decided to...
...write my thank-you's.

You Light Up My Life

I adore this time of year- all the twinkling lights seem to cast a romantic glow around the city.  For this date, I wanted to show my husband that he is the "LIGHT" of my life!  To set the scene, I couldn't resist trying out an idea I spied on Pinterest: making a strand of light bulbs out of fingerprints!  This fun technique became the background of a little card I set amidst a strand of lights for my hubby to find.

The Cake Date

baking date idea

To me, dinner is just NOT complete without dessert!  My sweet tooth may be the end of me one day but, until then, I just relish in it!  With the weather making it less appealing to venture outside, I decided to combine two of my favorite things, my hubby and dessert, into one fun date night!

“The Vow” Date

Have you seen the movie "The Vow"? It is a beautiful movie, which is why we chose it for our date this week!

[social_warfare]
IN THE MOVIE at the very beginning they get married and give their vows to each other.
I just loved the vows scripted in this movie....

I don't know if you wrote your own vows for your wedding, but we didn't. I thought to myself... what a great date for my husband & I! So I took THE VOWS from the movie and saved the first half...

Thanksgiving time is always chaotic {at least it is around my house}. It seems like there is always a million things to do and intimacy with my man doesn't usually take the top spot on my long list of things to do. Not this year! It's time to 'SPICE' that ol' hum-drum romance up with this new Thanksgiving bedroom game! Whoot! Are...

Inside Trick or Treat

Inside trick or treat

Trick or Treating is one of the best parts of the Fall Season! As a new mom, I can't wait to take my little guy trick or treating for the first time this year!  But I can't forget about my big guy (aka hubby), so I set up trick or treating INSIDE!
