We were also planning on renting a movie and i'm going to cook him something nice, just havent decided what yet LOL We always have the tradition of taking turns giving each other good body massages as well

  • happy anniversaryHappy Anniversary!. We had a few years where money was tight and what we did was make the most of it at home.  One year I cooked a nice meal for hubs, the next he cooked for me and had it ready when I walked in the door after work.  One year he surprised me by picking up take-away on his way home from work.  Most years after the kids were in bed we would snuggle up and watch tv or a movie together-- and I think that was the best part of our anniversary celebration.

  • Congratulations! We just celebrated our 22nd in August.

    A years ago I "recreated" our first date. I got the movie we saw on our first date, and made a similar dinner to the one we had at the mexican restaurant we went to on our first date. I made blueberry margaritas the drink we had with dinner on our first date. I got all dressed up, hair make-up and nails as though we were going out. It was very romantic and my husband loved it.

  • Don't buy card's just make them also You can also check fb there is a group called freebies for mom, and they give rebox movie codes about 1 time a week or so. It's usually on the weekends.
