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...

White Chicken Chili and Pumpkin Passion Dessert

When I think about Halloween and food. I really think about comfort food. It's getting cold outside and fall has begun. Now that I have children to take out trick-or-treating, I tend to lean more toward recipes that are simple, somewhat healthy and are still considered comfort food. A little something to warm me up from the inside out. A friend of mine shared this White Chicken Chili recipe with me a few years ago...

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!"

A Halloween Party for Families

I was SO excited to get this party started and share it with all of you! My husband and I love to entertain our family and friends. I don't know why, but we have since we've been married. Consider us the party people! {lol} And what a better excuse than a PRE-Halloween bash!?!
Okay, so the real purpose of our little party was actually to introduce our new babysitting co-op. I got tired of trying to find a babysitter every weekend...

I think every Holiday is a reason to celebrate and Halloween is no exception. I think it's fun to surprise my husband and son with a little something on Halloween morning. It doesn't have to be expensive - get creative! Last year my husband got a Spider musical tie from the Dollar Store with his favorite pack of candy - classy, huh! This year, I decided to do a mummy theme.

For the card I used white card stock, black card stock, orange paper - whatever...

4-Year Anniversary Date Night Idea
First I want to tell my hubby "Happy Anniversary!" It has been "4" amazing years in more than one aspect! I dated my best friend for "4" years before we tied the knot, we have also been married for "4" years as well. So I wanted to do something fun that we would both remember!
