Beach Party in the Basement

A basement beach party for two!

Basement Beach Party
The winter can seem like a long time. But there are things you can do to make it feel warmer and more enjoyable. Don't get me wrong...I love winter and the snow, but it is nice to enjoy the warm weather. So I came up with the idea to have a beach party in my basement. It makes it seem like it is warmer, plus it is fun to try different things.
The first thing I started with was the invite. I bought some beach balls from Oriental Trading. You can...

The Christmas Service Date

A Christmas service date at the food bank.

PART I - Service
'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...

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” 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...

The WILD Jungle Safari Date

The WILD Jungle Safari Date Night

Happy, Happy Columbus Day! Today we are going to be doing our own exploring.  But don't you worry, we won't be going too far from home on this date. Instead, we'll use our surroundings to "explore the Wild Jungle!"

 I was pleasantly surprised when my inspiration for this date came from an unexpected source. One of YOU - our readers! When Stephanie wrote us, she was looking for "Diva Advice". She wanted suggestions on presenting her anniversary gift to...

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...
