"Rose"-mantic Scavenger Hunt date night idea.

Rose Themed Scavenger Hunt
Getting my husband to plan a date is not an easy thing.  In fact, I would just rather plan it most of the time to make sure we have a fun date night.  He is a very busy man and does so much to support our family and planning a really fun date THIS great takes a lot of time.  So I asked him straight up if he would be willing to plan one and he said yes!  That being said, I knew he would need time to plan it, so together we decided that...

St. Patrick’s Day Luck

St. Patrick's It's Your Lucky Day gift idea

I am an Irish girl and I like to get into St. Patrick's Day. The thing is, St. Patrick's Day isn't a holiday where you have to stress too much.  It's the little things that you can do to make it extra special. This year I went to the store and bought some Lucky Charms. I also bought some other great things like green and gold candy and a shirt for my man  {...and a shirt for me!}.

So I decided to write a tag out saying, 'I am so "Lucky" to have you in my life'....

How To Get Your Hubby “On Board”

How you can get your hubby on board with date night

Making Date Night Happen...
This is one question that we get a LOT! "How do you make date night happen when your spouse isn't totally on board?' For a LOT of couples, date nights were a lot easier and more romantic before marriage. But for some reason, after marriage they seem to take a back seat. There are a lot of reasons why that happens (jobs, kids, finances, and... well, just real life.) But the real question is- how do you make it better? How do you make your...
