At Home Date Idea: Let’s Be Kids Again

Most of the time, you realize that it’s been forever since you and your loved one went on a date together. Your schedules are crazy, you just want to relax, or the budget doesn’t allow for it. So that’s where this great blog post comes in. We are starting a new series of At Home Date Ideas and I can’t wait to share the first one with you.

For my first idea I wanted to let out our inner kid behavior, so I’m positive it’ll be a fun one. Start with Mickey Mouse pancakes in bed! Now who wouldn’t want that? Some sausage, orange juice, and maybe spice it up with some Champagne.

Head downstairs and I test you to leave all electronic devices upstairs! Still in your pajamas, gather all the blankets possible. I’m sure you know what’s coming next. FORT TIME! This is so fun and I still enjoy doing it with my significant other. Build a fort in the living room and close all the blinds. So cute and romantic!

By this time, y’all are in the mood for some serious down time. Then pop in a DVD of your childhood favorite movie. Maybe Sleeping Beauty, The Incredibles, or Monsters Inc. (my personal favorite.) Make some buttery popcorn into a big bowl and bring it into your fort. This time together will be restful and recharging; something I’m sure the both of you need.

After the movie, head outside for a brisk walk. Head to the nearest park or down to the river, where y’all can chat and hang out outside. If it’s too cold/hot, do a mini in home workout that has both of you laughing. I’m sure your abs will be hurting more from that. Maybe see who can hold a plank longer?

After that, I’m sure its time to rinse off. So put some bubbles in a nice warm bath and relax. You both need it. Enjoy this time together without any interruptions. Both of you get caught up in everyday life that has you not spending enough time with each other. I hope that you enjoy this post and stayed tuned for the next In Home Date Idea!

Small Ways to Show Your Significant Other You Care

Ever come home from a long day at work just wanting to rest and order in take out, but the dog ripped your favorite pillow, your AC went out, and the kids haven’t done their homework. I’m sure everyone always has those tough days where they just want some kind of comfort and reaffirmation. This would be a great cue to pick up on as a significant other to do something nice for them. Here are some ideas that will make her heart beat 10x faster:

  1. Surprise her by making dinner
    When she gets home from a tough day at work, which you already know about from talking with her, she comes into you in the kitchen making dinner. Throw something in the crockpot, put some chicken in the oven, or have steaks out on the grill, this will ensure a happy happy significant other. [Image Credit Link]
  2. Massage at Bed Time
    After all the dishes are clean and the kids (dogs, cats, birds) are in bed, tell her to come next to you. Play some music and give her a short massage.
  3. 10 Free Coupon Book
    These are always fun to give! 10 Free coupons that they can use whenever they want. Here are some examples: 1) go to a nice dinner, 2) one free massage, 3) foot rub, 4) do the dishes for a week, 5) breakfast in bed. So cute and so simple! [Image Credit Link]
  4. Messages throughout the House
    I have always been a sucker for sweet messages from my loved ones! I know you all remembered when your mom used to write on your napkin for your school lunch. How about do this around the house? Messages on the bathroom mirror, in the refrigerator, on her favorite DVD case, or on her nightstand. These simple gestures can sure go a long way. [Image Credit Link]
  5. Spa Day
    Now every girl (or guy) needs a spa day once in a while. Book an appointment for your significant other on a day where you know they are completely free. Give them the day off by letting them have a stress free day by themselves (or with friends). [Image Credit Link]

These are only a few ways to make your significant other feel special. You should be making them feel special each and everyday. Thanks for checking in!

Dallas Picnic Styled Shoot

A couple of weeks ago we teamed up with some wonderful vendors here in Dallas for a styled shoot / date night. Kate from The Everyday Hostess styled a beautiful picnic date for Aaron and I while we shot some fun pictures with Lindsay Davenport Photography! They even had Caddy Corner Designs create a custom wooden calligraphy sign and the picnic featured some adorable piece from Gold Dust Vintage Rentals. You’ll even notice a little cameo of our LOVE Gift Box (which is the perfect gift for your spouse or loved one).

Summer Date Series: Berry Picking

When I think of summer, one of the things I think epitomizes the season most is the abundance of fresh produce available everywhere you look.  While I love the farmer’s market, there’s something about going straight to the source and hand-picking the exact ingredients for a recipe.  Not only can you “taste test” while hunting, you can also choose the ripest and sweetest fruit the farm has to offer.  The quality of the finished dessert always depends on the ingredients, so choosing wisely can make all the difference!

Berry picking is our idea of the perfect summer date for many reasons.  For starters, most farms are free to get into.  You can determine the cost by choosing how many pounds of berries or other fruit you take home.  It’s also a hands-on activity, meaning you’ll spend more time bonding and and less time on your phones.  Last but not least, the berry picking date can last way beyond the farm.  After you return home with the berries, have a competition to see who can bake the best pie from scratch.  Make a bet, like winner’s recipe gets the title as the new “family recipe” and loser gets to take their pie to the face.
