Top 20 Stay-At-Home Date Night Ideas

ideas for date nightAnother great post from www.happywivesclub.com Top 20 Stay-At-Home Date Night Ideas.

We all know how important frequent date nights are for keeping the fire burning with our spouse.

But when money is tight, or a babysitter is nowhere to be found, keeping a regular date night can be a challenge. We’re here to help!

We’ve scoured the web, looking for the best, cheapest, most creative stay-at-home date nights and compiled a list of the top 20 we found online.

So grab your hubby, put the kids down for the night, and get your date night on!

Iron Chef Chocolate: Make a meal with chocolate featured in every course. Who says chocolate can’t be served as a main course? You can either make a meal together or divide up the courses between each of you and surprise the other with your sweet & savory creations.

Strip Trivia: Make it a hot night with this sizzling bedroom game. Tease each other with one steamy question at a time to set one another on fire!

Make It a Theme Night! Choose a theme and center everything you do around it. For example, if you choose an Italian theme, you could eat spaghetti and gelato, then watch a movie like The Italian Job or Life is Beautiful. Some other fun theme ideas: Mexican, Asian, Christmas, Kid’s theme, 1950′s (or any decade), etcetera.

Living Room Camp-Out: Get anything you have that makes you feel like your camping out and set it up in your living room (i.e. camping chairs, turn off the lights and use flashlights, blanket…). Make tin foil dinners in your oven for the dinner.

Crepes in Paris (no ticket required): Spend an evening in Paris right in your very own home enjoying create-your-own-crepes and creative spouse caricatures. So fun!

Create a DIY Photoshoot: When’s the last time the two of you were in the same photo? Using your tripod or Apple photo booth, snap pics together in various rooms of your home for memories you’ll never forget.

Kid-Free Slumber Party: Make a cozy pallet for you and your spouse on the living room floor [with] lots of blankets, pillows, snacks, and movies. We call it a ‘slumber party.‘ It’s a little silly, but super fun and makes us enjoy the little things in life.

All Dressed Up & Nowhere to Go: Pull out your nicest formal dress from your last cruise or even from your high school or college prom (if yours still fits.. good for you! I’m not even close to fitting into mine), light dozens of tea candles, and have a romantic, fancy dinner.

Out of Character: Dress up as an actor from a movie and pick the character for each other (think Tom Cruise in Risky Business).

Dream Date by Design: Design your own Dream Date with an easy survey! Have your sweetheart do one also, to create two amazing dates!

Turn Your Bedroom Into a Love Nest: I purchased a bed canopy years ago. Occasionally I’ll pull it out, dust it off and put it up for the night. Then I fill the room with candlelight and other sundry romantic items and pretend that Mr. Beguiles and I are tucked away in a sumptuous hotel room or cottage somewhere.

Karaoke Night – oh yeah! Find songs with lyrics on YouTube and sing your heart out. This is funniest if you can find some heart-wrenching ballads to belt out.

Dance the night away: It has all the intimacy of a club without the downside of slipping in spilled drinks. Rehash the days of the high school dance. Turn down the lights, turn up the music and be sure to dance two feet apart. Just kidding! Getting close is the point, and what better way to get close to your spouse than dancing in your own private gala?

Vacation Planning Date: Turn planning your next vacation into a fabulous and fun date night with our great printables!

Get a Taste of Another Culture: Plan out a delish meal of Paella and sangria, prepare it together and then dig in. Love Indian? Make your own Chicken Tikka Masala.

Write out the story of how you met (and fell in love): Better yet- video tape it! Your kids and future posterity will be so grateful and it is so fun to go back and read (or watch) years down the road. It’s amazing how much you will forget!

Wine Bar at Home: Buy a few different bottles of wine (get 20 great picks under $20), make a plate of meats and cheeses, light some candles and load up your iPod with your favorite tunes.

Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue! Celebrate your lifelong commitment to your sweetheart with this “Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue” themed date! This date is a true celebration of love.

Play the Newlywed Game! See how well you really know one another. Have prizes for every correct answer. You can check out some fun questions here.

It’s a Love Match! Create some sparks with your sweetheart with this free printable that puts a romantic spin on the classic game of Memory!

Didn’t find something on this list that floats your boat? Find an endless amount of creative and cheap stay-at-home date nights at my absolute favorite date night site: The Dating Divas. These fabulous ladies love their hubbies and have made a career out of sharing their awesome date night ideas with us.

Until Monday…make it a great weekend!

3 Simple Steps to Connect More Deeply with Your Husband

how to save a relationshipHere is a great post by www.happywivesclub.com 3 Simple Steps to Connect More Deeply with Your Husband, it could also be called how to save a relationship, your relationship. Real easy to do, just do it.

Kim Hall is a great contributor to the website – www.happywivesclub.com

The more I got to know her, the more I realized how deep that happiness ran (and her passion for practicing gratitude daily).

This much I know about Kim: she loves her husband, she adores her family, she is living the life she most desires, and she’s pretty darn happy!

For those reasons (and so many more), I love reading everything she writes. So without further ado…

Have you ever gotten into an apocalyptic battle a civil discussion with your husband about how you are being treated like a slave are not feeling appreciated?

Did you gain insight and perspective, or did one or both of you just ultimately walk away from the conversation with more hurt feelings?

Some time ago my hubby and I learned a better way to handle these situations, and we always come away feeling more enlightened and connected.

Here are 3 simple steps to connect more deeply with your husband:

1. Set the stage. Plan for quiet time together, just the two of you (no television or other distractions), perhaps by taking a walk, relaxing after a meal, or just getting comfortable.

2. Ask the question. The essence is this:“What do I do that shows you I love you?”

I encourage you to introduce it like this: “I’m curious. I’ve been thinking about the things that I do or could do that show you I love you, and I wonder if you would share something I do that makes you feel loved.

Your husband may need some time to think, possibly beyond today, especially if he feels he’s being pressured to give the “right answer”, which is probably not his true answer. Just be patient. After all, nagging probably doesn’t make him feel loved. 🙂

3. Respond with loving action. . . even if his answer is not what you expected. There’s an excellent possibility he may not answer with the ONE THING that you are sure makes his heart sing. But then, that is the whole point of asking, isn’t it? Your goal is to gather quality information and act with awareness so your husband will feel deeply loved.

If his answer surprises and/or disappoints you, this is NOT your cue to pounce on him like a tiger on wounded prey. Take a few deep breaths and get curious rather than frustrated.

Take the opportunity to share with him as well. Let him know something he does that shows you he loves you. These actions can take many forms, such as leaving little love notes, gently touching your shoulder, taking out the trash, giving you his undivided attention, etc.

Once he shares what makes him feel loved, be sure to do more of that, and you will be delighted by the results!

Remember, it is what we pay attention to in our relationship that grows.

QUESTION: What do you do that shows your husband you love him, or what does he do for you? I invite you to join in the conversation!

Knowing how to save a relationship is fundamental these days.

Do ex boyfriends always come back these days?

do ex boyfriends come back these days?OK girls, here are some facts you probably need to know about your guy. You seem to struggle to relate to the guy you love, you don’t always speak the same language as each other. Guys say things that hurt you but were not intended to and then guys get very confused when they get the cold shoulder and tears come into play.

At this point all hell breaks loose as neither of you know what happened but you both feel it wasn’t your fault and in fact are certain it was the other person’s fault and feel hurt. But these flare ups do not need to happen, girls just need to better understand their guys. And as girls are the smarter sex it probably is up to you to get a better understanding as guys won’t as you know…

Here come those boyfriend facts…

1) Guys do think about absolutely nothing

You may not believe me but it is true, every man has the innate ability to think about nothing. So don’t worry or take it the wrong way if he doesn’t share he’s thoughts with you. As strangely as it may seem he may not have any thoughts!!!

So don’t concern yourself, just believe this fact.

2) He loves you and doesn’t want you to change

He actually just wants you to remain the same way, the day you both met. All happy, excited, touchy feely, he doesn’t want that to ever go away.

3) Change isn’t good in his mind

As mentioned, guys really do not do change at all. That is for you to change and more importantly for them to change. He wants everything the way it is, so no exercise, no healthy eating, same chair in front of the tv, same car, same, same, same. Scary isn’t it but great information for you, so you know when you want to make changes, he may freak out !!

4) Emotion is important to him as well

Females believe their partners are emotionally shallow but this is wrong, men do not show their emotions readily but they have strong emotions and often very deep. He may not say he loves you every day but deep down his love for his family and you is very strong. But he needs to understand you feel the same way.

You need to take these simple facts in and they will help you understand him better and hopefully with understanding will come a better appreciation of your man and what is driving him to be the way he is.

Do ex boyfriends always come back these days? Well yes they do come back, not always but as you can see from this list, there are lots of things you can do to control your guy.

What to do when your husband cheats?

What to do when your husband cheatsHow can I forgive my husband for cheating?

So many other questions come to mind and I would imagine have done for so many years for so many women. Divorce has only been an option recently for women to get out of their marriage if there was cheating involved. While this is one solution, its not necessarily the ideal one. Marriages can and do survive cheating a lot these days, in fact statistically the amount of cheating is incredible but also the amount of marriages that survive is also quite incredible. Apparently just over 40% of marriages have either partner admitting to cheating and what is interesting is the fact the numbers are quite equal between the sexes.

31% of marriages last after cheating has been found out, while 50% of all marriages end in divorce. So there is a good deal of hope in survival after cheating, if that is what you want to do.

So, lots of statistics, but does this help forgiving your man for potentially committing one of the ultimate sins? Probably not, but it gives you some context and shows it is really worth the effort as it can work.

For you to forgive him, you will need time and space to give this the thought it deserves, this is obviously an enormous blow to you. You need to really consider what it means to you and what YOU want to do with your life next. You need to take as much time as you need, you are in control now, no-one else, no-one else can call the shots now. You have all the cards or should do and if you don’t, make sure you do. You must not let anybody push you into any decisions until you are ready, if you do anything before you are good and ready, it could cause you to close down and prevent you from being able to think straight, which is not good for you, your marriage or anyone.

This stage is all about you. So if he is trying to get back into your life, there is nothing wrong in watching him work at it and dragging it out, after all it was his fault. And although it cannot remove the pain, it in some small way helps you and you deserve some small payback. But if you know he has no chance, it won’t make you feel better if you let him squirm for too long.

Women over the years have been told it is their fault if their man strays, which is ridiculous as you know. So do not blame yourself, he did this, he is responsible, take time to understand that. You have to forgive yourself first before you can ever consider forgiving him.

Forgiving someone for cheating has to be one of the most difficult things you can ever do in your life but it is possible and I hope the thoughts here can help you. It is not going to be easy, but if YOU want to do this after giving yourself time and careful consideration, I applaud your strength of character and wish you all the best in the world.

Good luck.

Breakup advice – Biggest Break Up Mistakes

advice for breakups

We have some breakup advice here, showing you the biggest break up mistakes, you may well be making right now, hopefully not but read on and see.

It is crucial you do not do any of these mistakes, even if you have a heart that is broken. If you do manage to avoid these, your chances will jump to over 60% to get back with your ex.

  • Most people think that if you hang around your ex and try to be friends it will help. all that will actually happen is you will be used and viewed as someone who is around and not a serious partner.
  • Harassing your ex with millions of emails, thinking volumes of stuff will make them think more of you. They need space, so don’t fill the space with pointless emails.
  • Don’t call them all day, every day, the same as the email harassment, they need space, not your pointless messages. And you need space too. Especially if you are angry, you need to calm down, it isn’t going to help. Think about your actions and give them space. If you are angry, go to the gym!!!
  • The other way to get into their life, is to do jobs/favors for them, to make you look irresistible. it won’t work, they will see through your efforts and lose any respect they may have had. It will turn out that you get used the whole time, this isn’t helping you or them.
  • Making them jealous, should be on the mistakes and good idea list. It all depends on how it is done, if you can do this successfully, they will get jealous, which works. But if it goes wrong, you will be pandering to their ego and shows your desperation.
  • OK the big one, do you or don’t you have sex with your ex? And for a guy this is a tricky one… But the act is showing them you will do whatever it takes to get back into their lives. Which should not be your plan. You need to get back into their lives on an equal footing, not just for the things you can do.
  • Some people who have been dumped after often trying to beg, feel real anger and resentment and the only way to feel some self respect and better about the situation is to threaten your ex. This is clearly a big no-no and may feel the right thing to do to make you feel better. But clearly this is the end of any possibility of a rekindling of your relationship.
  • The last one on the list of things, you should not be doing is another tricky one. Your ex may ask you to change something they do not like about you and in your desperation, you may say you will change Be very careful here as you may not be able to change or worse you may not need to change, and your ex will not think any more of you, if you just jump to their command.

Well that is the list of what you shouldn’t do, I bet you are doing at least one of those, I know I have in the past as love is blind.. Luckily now as I have mentioned before I have found a great guy who can probably help you, check it out here

Surviving a breakup

surviving a breakupI know you are here because you are struggling with a really tough situation, I have been there and you don’t know what to do for the best, breaking up with a loved one is so painful.


But I think I can help you, I have found a Southern guy, who has a Southern drawl but he knows what he is talking about. I really like what he says about how you can really turn this around if you stop what you are doing and follow his advice. He says you have to start with what’s inside you. In fact he has a video that can help you RIGHT NOW and I would love for you to watch it here.


This guy has helped over 50,000 people across 77 countries and I would love you to meet him, his name is T. Dub Jackson. To be honest I am not sure if he can you in your particular situation, but you have nothing to lose by watching his great videos, no bs, just straight talking advice, you can use right now..

You could be going about this all wrong… He tells you what you should do when you contact your ex next.


He can do more than help you in surviving a breakup, he can help you get back with your ex.

Good reference for relationships

Good luck in surviving a breakup, your breakup, but please remember, you don’t have to only survive it you can rebuild it.
