A burning question...

So, inquiring minds want to know...

What did your sweetie get you for Christmas? And, what did you get him/her?

Sometimes finding that perfect gift is a difficult task, so I wanted to find out if you succeeded this year! Was he surprised? Did she tear up?

My "funny" gift from my guy: A SNUGGIE! Hehe!

Frugal Christmas Date Ideas

There are only a few days left until Christmas! Who's excited?! {Me! Me! Me!}

Maybe you're looking for some ideas for some last minute frugal Christmas dates?
Here are a few things you and your sig. other could do together to celebrate the holiday season:

-Bundle up and take a walk around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights! If it's too cold for that, hop in the car and visit your favorite decorated areas. Make sure to take some warm cider or hot chocolate. If you're in the car, crank the Christmas radio station up loud {or find the Pandora Christmas station on your smart phone}!
-Make ornaments together. Yeah, not all guys are crafty or want to sprinkle glitter on ornament balls, but if you're feeling a little adventurous, grab some plain ornaments and decorate away!
-Decorate a gingerbread house together. You can buy the kits at the grocery store. Just don't eat all the shingles off the roof before you're finished decorating!
-Bake gingerbread or sugar cookies and decorate them together! Or, if you're in the traditional mood...learn to bake a fruitcake or a rum cake.
-Watch classic Christmas movies together. Pop some popcorn and drink a cup of eggnog while watching movies like "It's a Wonderful Life," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "Miracle on 34th Street," "Rudolph," and of course "Elf."
-Wrap your presents together. Not everyone enjoys the wrapping process of being Santa, so "suffer" together in sharing with the task. {This is not for everyone. Some of Santa's elves would prefer to work alone.}
-Start a Christmas tradition--something that fits you and your sweetie's couple personality. Be creative and have fun!

Do you have any additional Christmas date ideas? I'd love to hear them!

Surprise Date...YOGA?!

Saturday, December 18, 2010 will go down in history as the day I went on the most unique date of my life.


Yep. This girl may have met her match when it comes to a guy who plans fun frugal dates! 

This morning, HE took me on a surprise date...and boy, was I shocked! HE told me we would be somewhere inside and to wear athletic clothing. HE had heard me saying that I wanted to work out more often, so I thought maybe we were going to jog somewhere or maybe do something a little more adventurous like rock climbing.  I never would have guessed we were going to take a yoga class together! {I'm giggling now thinking about our 75 minute long class!}

I'm not known for my athleticism or flexibility, so I was really nervous about attending the class, especially with HIM. I could literally picture myself falling over in the middle of a balancing position!

We actually had a lot of fun (and quiet laughs)! The view from our downtown "classroom" was spectacular. Our instructor was exceptionally helpful when teaching the class, knowing we were the only beginners in attendance. We tried not to laugh at ourselves too often, especially when attempting those almost impossible moves (like the one where you put your knees inside your elbows and keep your feet off the ground!).

We definitely made some fun memories this morning! I never expected a guy to be as creative with a date as to include a yoga class! That's one confident man!

The class was only about $9 per person. Yoga is definitely not for everyone, but it was fun for us to try.

Now, let's see what other fun frugal dates HE will create! :-)

Happy Dating!
