I’ll Love You Forever!

I will love you forever - a romantic Anniversary date night idea.

I'll Love You Forever!  Aaahhh...doesn't that just sound great?!  It does to me.  That is what my date was all about.  Joseph and I celebrated our 6th anniversary (wahoo!) at the beginning of the month and I wanted to make it extra special.  He is truly the best thing in my life and with how crazy our lives are right now, I really wanted him to know how amazing I think he is.

How did I do that?  Well, let's just say with 3 kids our budget...

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...

At-Home Spa Ideas

An at-home spa date night idea

I have to start by telling you about one of Joseph and my favorite dates. We went to a spa to get a couple's massage, but it turned out to be more than I expected! I had never been to a professional spa before and it was amazing! We first got put in a sauna for 45 min, then to a relaxing love seat where we were served fresh fruit and Martinelli's while some romantic/relaxing music was playing in the background. Once we were done with that, we were then taken to do...

Rock ‘n’ Roll Romance Date

Rock 'n' Roll Romance Date

I just want to start this post with a little "background story".  For as long as I can remember I have LOVED Rock'n' Roll music. Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and AC/DC are just a few of my faves. I love it so much that I decided the guy I would marry would have to LOVE it too. Don't worry...that wasn't my only criteria. :) I just always knew that if we had the same taste in music that we would probably have lots to talk about as well as a lot of other things...

The past couple Friday nights my husband has come home from work and surprised me with a stack full of movies that he checked out from the library.  This has been something I look forward to on the weekends now.  It's always fun to see what movies he found and that he thought about me by picking out several chick flicks.

Friday nights are our nights where we just want to put the baby to bed...
