Christmas Treats for the Sweet
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...

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.

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...

Couples Halloween Costumes Ideas

Vote for your favorite Halloween couples costumes!

I LOVE Halloween. The candy, the decorations, the parties, and the COSTUMES! I have always loved dressing up and it became even better when I got married and could pair up with my spouse! He doesn't always love my ideas, but he's pretty good to go with the flow. Most of the time.

While I was brainstorming this years costume, I thought it would be fun to see what the other Diva's have dressed up as before. They were good sports and consented to letting me share with...

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...
