11. Bedroom Games

DIY Heart Day

11.  Bedroom Games

This is a great idea from The Real Housewives of Bucks County. This little game would be a tantalizing surprise. Entice your honey into bed and when he pulls back the covers he'll be in for a big, big surprise! I love this and I'm sure you will too!!!

Tickled Twist:  I think they have covered all the bases.  Instead of tricking him into bed, I would seduce him into bed and then surprise him with a game night! 

easy to say

Always show kindness, courtesy, and respect. Those are all easy things to say, not so easy to do. The more love you show in your words and actions the more love your spouse will feel.

Acts of Service

*Winter Date:  Acts of Service
*Cost: Free to do and will make you feel like a million bucks 
*Perks:  Be selfless together, secretly make someone else very happy, and realize how wonderful your life really is!

Take time out to do something nice for someone else and lose yourself in serving others.  I love the idea of taking a date night or two and doing something good to help improve someone else's life.  Not only is this a fun bonding experience for the two of you but it helps you realize how much you have to be thankful for.  Not much is better than that!  After your kind act of service treat yourself to a yummy treat and chat about the experience.

If you have any winter date ideas please share them. Winter lasts for quite a few months and I would love to have a new date idea to share each week so we don't get the winter love blues!!!

piglet and pooh



How many of you have busy life's that are riddled with annoyances, irritations, and sharp remarks that end up leaving you frazzled??? Now how many of you tend to snap back at your spouse because you are feeling stressed or impatient??? 

What do you do when you find yourself being snappy, jumping to conclusions, or making harsh remarks to your spouse?

09. A few RIESEN's..

DIY Happy Heart Day

09.  "A few RIESEN"S...

This was taken from How Does She. She has a cute list of 14 different notes and treats she hid around the house for her hubby. I love this idea of the Riesen's tied with a list of the reasons you love him or her!

Tickled Twist: Give with notes listing all the naughty reasons you love him! 

Oh Ben...

I am sadly addicted to the bachelor/bachelorette. I threaten every year I'm gonna quit this show. Only to find myself staring at the TV memorized again. So what do you all think of our new Bachelor? Have you picked out your favorite girls? Have you chosen the femme fatale for the year? Love to hear all your bachelor gossip!!!

The Vow

Happy Monday!!! 

If you haven't quite guessed yet, I'm a huge romantic...While watching a preview for 
The Vow I fell in love with these sweet words, "I'll always love you, the fact is that you're just meeting me and I'm just a stranger...I vow to love you and no matter what challenges might carry us apart that we will always find a way back to each other," said by Channing Tatum in The Vow. How can you not fall in love with that! I think most women love the idea of a handsome husband fighting to help his wife remember him and their relationship. The gorgeous husband has a plan to make her fall in love with him again by reminding her of all of their moments. 

While looking through the movies this weekend I happened upon a Valentine's Package from Megaplex Theatres. They are offering a very romantic night out with a four course dinner and The Vow. Guys if you want to impress your lady this is the date for you!

08.  Wrapping It Up

How cute is this packaging.  Wrap your love treats with something sweet and adorable.  Use small paper lunch bags to wrap your sweets.  Top with a love sticker.

Tickled Twist:  Take a steamy picture with you holding or licking the sucker and VOILA you've got it all wrapped up!

an issue or two...

We all have an issue or two that we would like to see improved in our relationship. So the question to ask yourself is, what changes can you personally make to improve the relationship???

choices and chances

‎"No one falls in love by choice, it's by chance. No one stays in love by chance, it's by work. And no one falls out of love by chance, it's by choice."

I love this...words to live by! 


All relationships have little hiccups, right??? If you could change one thing in your relationship, what would it be???

20 January 2012

I still know...

"It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. The nurse took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now. I was surprised, and asked him, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’ He smiled as he patted my hand and said, ‘She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is."

Not sure where the story comes from but it melted my heart! This is the true love! 

07. For your fish in the sea...

07. For Your Fish In The Sea...

This is for all those music lovers. My hubby makes me a CD every once in awhile and I love it! Chances are if you spend the time making a Mix Cd for your "little fish" they will love it too!!!

Tickled Twist:  Create a love-makin' compilation cd or create a spicy boudoir collection.

Fall In Love Mix

06.  Love by Matt White

"What is love??? Such a silly game we play...I can feel it in this kiss...It's something I don't want to miss...what is love, I hope this is it." Don't we all just want to be swept away??? I know I do! 


03. A love lunch

DIY Happy Heart Day

03. A love lunch

I know this is meant for kids, but who says we can't make a grown up version. How many of you make lunch for your spouse? If you don't could you just send him or him off to work or off to a day at home with a love snack on valentine's??? You could switch out the pb&j with cold cuts and lettuce (keep the heart shapes though!) Instead of those sweethearts use hershey kisses. I love the strawberries, I wouldn't change those at all! MMM makes me fall in love just looking at it!

20. Deep, Soulful Kisses

20.  Deep Soulful Kisses

If you don't have deep, soulful kisses while making love, then you are missing out!!! These intimate kisses are magic. They create the deepest feelings of love and intimacy inside and outside of the bedroom. Remember kisses equal connection! Start kissing with all the love you've got!

This is such a cute idea.  Fortunes can be sexy of romantic.  Maybe turn the fortunes into wishes to be completed by you.   Get creative and see what fun fortunes you can come up with.

19.  Sexier You

Ladies...Are there days when you put on your makeup and think, "I look really pretty today!'? Do you have days where you feel like you can put anything on and rock it? Have you found yourself having days where you feel super sexy? If you tend to go through phases like this you should note which days of the month you feel like a sexier version of yourself. If you happen to notice a trend, you might want to share this information with your hubby so he can plan accordingly.

Great product idea...

Continue the Courtship

You always hear that you need to continue to date your spouse. So why is it that we all have such a hard time doing this??? 

Continuing the courtship is so important to maintaining the spark in your relationship, loving bonds, and growth together throughout the years. Don't take this advice lightly because it really can make the difference between long term and short term marriages. 

It doesn't matter if the time you spend courting is elegant, simple, daring, adventurous, or plain ridiculous. All that matters is that you spend quality time together, at least 15 hours a week. So what are you waiting for, grab your spouse and start courting each other!

01. Valentine Handprint Card

DIY Heart Day...

easy and cute!

Rosy ~ Posy: Valentine Handprint Cards & One For You: Valentine's day is just around the corner and every year we make something special to give to Omi and Opa. Last year we made valentine paper...

you treat it differently

"Marriage: If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by."
