Getting Organized for 2013!

Hey there everyone! Since Nathan and I moved into the house, we have SLOWLY been trying to get organized. As I stated in my article “One Month of Marriage“, the hubskis and I have struggled to merge our schedules and keep everything in order. We finally got a calendar up on the fridge to keep track of what’s coming up through the month…

Calendar

I also picked out my 2013 planner!! I absolutely LOVE new planners 🙂 They bring me so much joy…

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Date Night in a Jar

I got this idea on Life in the Green House.

Start with big popsicle sticks in three different colors of your choice. I used red, pink and white. Each color will represent a different spending range of dates.
The first color have more expensive dates on them that require planning.

     Here are some ideas:
  • Bed and Breakfast
  • Dinner at a fancy restaurant
  • Hotel stay for the night
  • Steelers game
  • Concert and dinner (his choice)
  • Concert and dinner (my choice)
  • Weekend away
  • Couples Massage 
  • Shopping Trip (we love shopping together)
The second color have at-home dates.

     Some ideas:
  • Chopped Challenge (like the television show on FoodNetwork)
  • Fondue and Almost Famous
  • Takeout and board games
  • 1,000 piece puzzle and pizza
  • Football game and nachos
  • Popcorn (or candy if you are sugar fans) and her choice movie
  • Crosswords and breakfast for dinner
  • Make a dessert together
  • Friends marathon
  • Homemade pizzas and and his choice movie
The third color has dates to do away from home but are less expensive and don’t require much planning.

     Some ideas:
  • Dinner and a movie (my choice dinner his choice movie or vice versa)
  • Laser tag and go carts
  • Mexican night
  • Drive-In date
  • Dessert only date
  • Window shopping for the house
  • Bowling
  • The Melting Pot
  • Coffee Date
Make a key so you know what you’re reaching for.
