Spin the Bottle Date Night at home - Create some excitement with this date night in (as part of a year of dates gift idea) and some fun! whatsupfagans.com

In case you missed it, I gave my husband a year of date nights for Christmas last year, because the gift of love is the best gift of all! I gave him 12 envelopes, 1 for each month, and each month I planned out two dates, one date night in, one date night out. Over the last year, we have had a great time going on more dates than we have in the past, even if our planned dates haven’t always gone according to my master plan. The important this is that we prioritized spending time together and going out on dates. *My affiliate links are used in this post.* The Invite Envelope Month eleven was November. November is our anniversary ...

Last Friday, the 10th, around 9PM there was a knock at the door.  As I ran downstairs and opened the door I found this outside of our door:I think Josh and I have the best friends ever!  We never stop being surprised by secret gifts it seems, especially lately with having a 12 days of Christmas secret Santa, and having a nice lady at Wal-mart pay for a shopping trip before Thanksgiving.  It just continues to prove a little of what I said about this being our season of receiving.  Guess we are just giving others opportunities to serve.Our secret Valentine gift included:One giant blue tub3 bars of soapCurel Lotion (which works ...
