    I love this list! I just sent it to my husband so we could go through it together for Monday night :), as our babysitter can’t sit for V-Day – boo! But doesn’t mean we can’t make it a wonderfully fun or romantic evening at home together! Thanks for the ideas :)

    Just found your blog. =)
    We did our first ever date night in our new house this past Valentines Day. I totally surprised him with a blanket of rose petals on the floor in front of the fire. We did massages, opened a bottle of wine, and had such a great time connecting. So easy and cheap! And my kids were upstairs sound asleep. =)

    One Halloween my husband and I carved pumpkins, threw the gloppy pumpkin gunk at each other, showered (together), and then doorbell ditched the pumpkins at random houses around town with little notes saying “Happy Halloween!” It was a really fun day.
