May you have a safe and wonderful New Year’s Eve. Don’t forget to ring in the New Year with a very special “New Year’s Eve Delight!” See December 30, 2009 for an explanation.

New Year’s Eve will be on Thursday. Some of you will be going out with friends or having everyone at your house to ring in the New Year. Although, after you read my idea, you may change your mind and decide to have a very private party of your own.

You will want to plan a nice dinner for just the two of you with soft music in the background and candles. Don’t make it too heavy. You want it light and delicious.  Our dinner will consist of fresh broiled lobster, French whole wheat bread and salad; nothing could be simpler or more delicious. Of course there will be a little bubbly to drink. Later that evening you could t watch a movie or if you live on the West Coast like we do watch the New Year’s Eve ball when it goes down in New York on TV.

In the morning you will leave your spouse a special note on a small card to set the mood and anticipation. You will be inviting him or her to your private party at midnight. The note will read “At the stroke of midnight let’s treat each other to a “New Year’s Eve Delight!”  Of course this will be a very private evening with sexy lingerie involved, music and candles that give a soft glow in the bedroom and on each other.

Ring in the New Year with a little “New Year’s Eve Delight!”

Are you going to a New Year’s Eve Party or having one at your house this Thursday for New Year’s Eve? Would you like to give a gift to the hostess or the partiers as they head home after midnight from your party or maybe a little something for your spouse? Well I have an inexpensive and thoughtful idea. You can package this up before the party and give to the hostess, partiers or your spouse.

For the hostess:  Bring a bottle of sparkling cider or champagne along with a lottery ticket and a small bottle of hand sanitizer. Attach a note to the package wishing your host & hostess a “Happy, Healthy & Wealthy New Year!”

For the partiers at your home:   Wrap a lottery ticket and small bottle of hand sanitizer with a note wishing them a “Happy, Healthy & Wealthy New Year!”

For the party of two (your spouse and you): Why not do the same thing by letting them know how much you care by wrapping up bottle of sparkling cider or champagne with a lottery ticket , a small bottle of hand sanitizer and massage lotion wishing both of you a “Very Sexy, Happy, Healthy & Wealthy New Year!”

If you are not able to buy a lottery ticket where you live then replace it with a crisp new $1.00 bill. It is always fun to do the unexpected whether you are giving a gift to friends or to your spouse.

It’s Christmas Eve the gifts are wrapped, there will be a party to attend or you are having it at your home. Some of you will be attending midnight mass. What ever your traditions are enjoy your time together with special family and/or friends. See the pleasure in what ever you do the night before Christ was born.

I used to have Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day dinner at my house. When our daughter got married she came to me and asked if we would be upset if her and husband went to his parents house on Christmas Eve and then they would spend Christmas Day with us. We told her we totally understood her family had gotten bigger and she should enjoy Christmas Eve with her in-laws. We would see her on Christmas Day!

Once we realized we wouldn’t have to worry about having everyone over for Christmas Eve we decided to make our own tradition. My husband and I get dressed up for Christmas Eve and go out to a special place for dinner, just the two of us. Sometimes we will travel as far away as an hour from our home. We have been to some wonderful places and have eaten great food. These are places that are too expensive for us to go to on a regular basis.

We have some great memories of this special time together. Like the time we had dinner in Morro Bay overlooking the bay. A small boat floated by the restaurant with Santa sitting on a motorcycle and he did a wheelie in front of the restaurant. Everyone was standing by the window clapping and laughing. It was magical. Another place was a quaint restaurant in Los Olivos where they had a guy playing Christmas music on the piano. One year we went to a Japanese restaurant and ate at the teppan grill and watched the chef do his magic with the food he prepared for us.

Later that evening when we get home my husband always knows I have prepared a special surprise for him. Since there aren’t any children at home we will have a beautiful leisurely evening in front of the fireplace with my Christmas lights for him.

When your normal traditions change because children have grown and are married, find a new tradition. Make it unique for the two of you and do something wild and zany like the Christmas lights I talked about last Friday, Dec 18, 2009.

Remember you marriage should be as magical as your Christmas is!

New Years Eve is almost here! I know we haven’t even gotten done with Christmas but I wanted to make sure that you made it a point to read my blog on December 30, 2009. You will be getting a New Year’s Eve idea. Yes, it will be inexpensive and fun to do. You won’t have to prepare for it as much as you did for Christmas Eve but I wanted you to be aware I will have another funny and romantic idea for you to surprise your partner with.

I hope you and your partner enjoy these very different romantic ideas I have created for you to do. Be aware your partner may act like they think you are nuts but laugh along with them. The idea is to have fun and be childlike in what you are doing. Life is to serious most of the time. My husband will sometimes roll his eyes and just smile but I know he does enjoy them. I think he doesn’t know quite what to do. So I just laugh and remind him I am just playing and to please come over and play with me. So let your partner know you love them and want to have fun memories that only the two of you will have. No one else will know. You will look at each other with many secret laughs. Every time you see Christmas lights you will never see them the same way.

One day I will tell you a story about one of my romantic ideas and what my husband did several months later that made me realize he does enjoy the unusual ideas I do for him.

So enjoy your holidays with your family and friends but remember to have fun with your spouse and let your spouse know you care in a most unusual and funny way.

There is a beautiful inn in Dana Point, CA that is having a special right now and I thought you would like to know about it. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary about three years ago there. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

The rooms are lovely. We stayed in one of the Pacific Edge Guestrooms. It has a king bed, gas fireplace, television and DVD player and a balcony that overlooks the bay. The bathrooms are spacious with an oversized jetted spa tub and shower. There is a refrigerator with complimentary sodas and in-room coffee, along with two luxuriously soft robes. The rate includes a full breakfast, afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres.

In the evening after going out to dinner we took showers; put their soft robes on and sat outside on the balcony overlooking the Dana Point Yacht Harbor enjoying a glass of wine. It was very romantic and peaceful. In the morning, after their delicious breakfast, we strolled arm and arm down to the bay and walked around.  We watch a beautiful large schooner gracefully float out of the bay. It was magical and a nice way to spend the morning before we left the inn. We both wished we could have spent another day there.

Their special is called “A Toast to the New Year” and is valid now through February 11, 2010. There are blackout dates so check to make sure the room is available at this special rate. Rates range from $165 to 195 per night, Sunday through Thursday and on select Friday and Saturday nights the rates are from $185 to $215 per night. This special applies to new reservations only and is strictly based on availability.

Here is the run down if you stayed at the Blue Lantern Inn in the Pacific Edge Room during the week:

Room Charge:   $195.00
Tax                       19.50
Total:                $214.50

You saved:         $260.00
Cost of Room:      214.50
Money left over:  $ 45.50

This is a great place to stay if you want a place that overlooks the beautiful Pacific Bay in Dana Point.  Check out their website: www.bluelanterninn.com

Like I promised one week before Christmas I would tell you what you needed to do with the items I told you to get from my blog “Making a List and Checking it Twice.” I have been reminding you to get these items so don’t tell me you forgot. If you haven’t got everything you will be running out to the store this weekend to pick up the items you don’t have. You don’t want to miss this.

Here is a reminder of everything I told you to get:

  • Christmas stationary paper
  • 1 Sting of battery operated Christmas lights (don’t forget the batteries)
  • 1 Small blank Christmas card
  • Small Christmas ribbon that will allow you to attach and tie something
  • Sexy lingerer or Christmas boxers

It is Christmas Eve, you have written your love letter or “25 Reasons Why I Love You” and printed or handwritten it on the Christmas stationary and put it in an envelope address to your spouse. The little munchkins are in bed asleep with sugar plums dancing in their heads. Hand your love letter to your partner and enjoy a glass of sparkly together while they read it.

Have your spouse light the candles in the bedroom and turn on soft music that is playing in the background.

Ladies you have taken a shower and while your husband is taking a shower you will get things ready.  Slip on something sexy or your husbands Christmas boxers or maybe nothing at all. Throw on a robe so your husband is surprised when he is done with his shower.  When he walks into the bedroom you will take off your robe and have the Christmas lights wrapped around your neck and the strands floating down each side of your body. The blank Christmas card you purchased has a small whole punched into it at the corner and the ribbon runs through it and is attached to the lights. On the blank card you wrote a note and it says “Merry Christmas sweetheart if you turn me on I will light you up.” Let him turn the lights on.

Husbands if you are giving the gift then have your wife light the candles and turn on the music while you take a shower and put those silk pajamas or Christmas boxers on. While your wife is taking her shower you could drape the Christmas lights over your neck down your body and write the same thing I told the ladies to.

My gift to you and your sweetheart is the pleasure of seeing those Christmas lights in a different way! May you have a joyous and pleasurable Merry Christmas that keeps you both lighted for many years!!!

Keep those sparks flying!
