The High King Lives

Child like Date June 17, 2015

In this post: A review of Dating Divas’ Inner Child date and Book store scavenger hunt.

Child Like Date
Hello dear ones! Chris and I had our second date since the baby was born. We decided to be like kids and try Dating Diva’s Inner Child date and book store date. I am a member of the Dating Divas club. So I got the Inner Child date printables for free. Paying for membership is worth all the benefits. I highly recommend joining. I’m a big fan of the Dating Divas, and we have used their date ideas plenty of times in the past. Here’s how our date went down:

• Happy Meals: I invited Chris to be a kid with me. We both got kids meals. We compared our toys and shot them at each other.

• The Park: Then we headed to the park. We caught tadpoles, and talked about childhood.

• Coloring: I made coloring pages from our family pictures. Later, we bought a Grumpy Cat coloring book that is awesome!

• Book store scavenger hunt: Then we went to Barnes and Nobles book store. We did this wacky scavenger hunt. The printables are free here: http://www.thedatingdivas.com/tara/the-bookstore-date/

We scoured the cook books for a recipe for our spouse.

Then we did a magazine survey. We found it in a little girls’ magazine. We sat at a table and whispered our answers. The survey was what kind of music star we’d be. Chris was a rock star. I was a rock and pop star. It’s funny because one of the questions asked if we liked wearing pink sparkly things. Chris was like “Heck no!”

Chris told me jokes in the joke section. He found a Grumpy Cat book.

I read Chris a children’s’ book in the children’s section.

Lastly, Chris found a poem and read it to me in the poetry section.

We didn’t get to the travel section to plan our dream vacation. We had to hurry home to the baby. This was a great date all around. It reminded me of when we were goofy teenagers. The Dating Divas always have the best ideas. I love mixing it up and making them my own. Have you ever tried on of their dates? If so, please let me know in the comments section.

Personalized Romantic Candle Holder February 10, 2015

Hello dear ones! A good while back I made this candle holder out of plaster of paris. It sat in my office for a long time. I finally decided to paint it for Valentine’s to go along with my date night plans.

I rented “The Vow” for me and Chris’ Valentine’s excursion. I was inspired by the Dating Diva’s Vow date night. Lord willing, I’ll share more on that after Valentine’s. I used paint, sharpies, and stamps to make my design. The roses are just silk roses from the Dollar Tree. I added them when I was making the candle holder. I personalized this by putting our names and our wedding date. It says “I vow to love you always”.

I found small red and white candles. This will add a romantic personal touch to our date night.

PS: Here are some date ideas for Valentine’s!

 

Valentine’s 2014 Inspired by The Dating Divas February 25, 2014

Hello dear ones! The title explains it all. We had a beautiful Valentine’s outing and http://www.thedatingdivas.com/ gave me the inspiration. I will make this short and sweet :). Disclaimer: This date is for married people ;).

Chocolate, romantic movies, candles, and bubble bath equal perfection…almost. Add in some Dating Divas ideas and voila! Perfecto! Not to mention the love of your life…yes that helps too lol ;).

This date didn’t cost too much. I was able to find Valentine’s decor at the Dollar Tree. Candles and rose petals are a must. The hotel room was the most expensive but I believe after almost ten years of marriage a Valentine’s out was needed. Note: Book a room with a Jacuzzi WAY ahead of time. Our date was actually the day after Valentine’s so miraculously we were able to get a great room in a hotel off the beaten path. I’m glad I didn’t give up on the Jacuzzi.

The hotel was nice enough to give us a DVD player to borrow, hence the movies. While I got the room ready I left Chris instructions for supper (I can’t do it all can I?). I went simple: Filet Mignon ready to throw in the oven, baked potatoes that you can microwave in the wrapper, and a salad.  Plastic champagne glasses and sparkling grape juice top it off. Romance doesn’t have to break the bank ;).

Dating Divas inspired me to make this awesome candy gram: http://www.thedatingdivas.com/tara/the-valentine-date/

Mine says: Babe, you’ve made my life EXTRA special! You’re the RIESEN for my smile. You always make me laugh. 🙂 Your KISSES are complete BLISS! xoxo Although we’re NERDS, we are a perfect fit, and our love is a beautiful SYMPHONY!!

I got these man approved Valentine’s here: http://www.thedatingdivas.com/holidays/valentines-day/man-approved-valentines/

These were so great. The themes are from big movies: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and several action movies. I couldn’t decide which one to use so I turned them into a Valentine banner.

God bless and remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
