New Year’s Eve is tomorrow night! Do you have plans to go out with friends or are you staying in like we are. We have done the parties and out to dinner with friends but have discovered we enjoy ringing in the New Year at home making a romantic dinner and eating it in front of the fireplace.

Our dinner typically is lobster, salad, French bread and a good bottle of local wine. If you are planning on staying home but don’t want to cook then order Chinese take out and enjoy eating it with chopsticks right out of the box together in front of the fireplace.

Do you want to have a sexy New Year’s evening after your party plans or your private dinner? When you get home or after dinner surprise your sweetheart with a note you have written that says:

“Happy New Year’s sweetheart! Pop the top, light the candles and we will start this New Year’s off with a big bang!”

Grab your candles, your favorite music and a bottle of bubbly and have a very romantic New Year’s Eve!

Keep those sparks flying!

Have you started to think about your New Year’s Resolution for your marriage yet? What? You didn’t even know you should be making a New Year’s Resolution for your marriage! You make resolutions every year for yourself & your career so why not one for your marriage?

Well I have an easy one for you to do and Dr Ruth suggested it on a program I recently watched. She was asked what was one thing couples could do for each other tonight. She said when you get home to go to bed a ½ hour earlier and cuddle with your honey. One simple little act you can do together that can make you both feel closer.

So why not make a New Year’s Resolution for your marriage and try to go to bed once a week a ½ hour earlier and cuddle with your sweetheart. Write it in your day planner for the weekend or during the week, whatever is convenient for you both.

Cuddling, just one easy thing you can do together to help you feel connected for the whole year.

Check in on Friday for another romantic idea for New Years Eve!

Holiday traditions are an integral part of the holidays for most families. Whether it is that the holiday meal always remains the same, Christmas caroling, Christmas Eve candlelight services or helping the needy.  What is your family tradition that you and your family do year after year that keeps you feeling “This is my family and how we do things.”

Do you have a tradition that you and your sweetheart do together as a couple? Did you know couples who have their own little traditions are happier and feel closer with each other than if they don’t do anything? Whether it is shopping together, planning the Christmas dinner or just sitting in front of the fireplace and with a glass of wine or warm drink after the kids are in bed gives them a sense that they are a team  and they have certain things they do together that defines them as a couple.

One of our most prized traditions for Larry and me is our romantic Christmas Eve date night. We get dressed up and go out to a really nice restaurant and then after when we get home I know Larry looks forward to my funny and sexy gift I like to give him every year. 

Start your own couples Christmas tradition by giving your sweetheart the suggestion I will be giving you for a very funny and sexy evening. You should have most of the items on hand, so it shouldn’t cost you a whole lot of money.

Here is the list of everything you will need:

•  2 Red Ornament Christmas Balls
• 1 Box to put the Red Ornament Christmas Balls in.
• Christmas Wrapping Paper
• 1 Blank Christmas card
• Candles
• Romantic Christmas Music
• Lingerie or maybe nothing at all!

This was meant to be up on my site on Friday, the 9th, but between working fulltime now I just ran out of time. There are still a lot of parties you will be attending and could secretly have fun with your partner.

The holidays are in full swing and there is no time left for your weekly private date, with parties and Christmas shopping you are too busy and tried to plan let alone go out with your sweetheart. Don’t let the holidays and parties stop you from having fun with your sweetheart.
 
When you are driving to the party let your sweetheart know you can’t wait to get them home and jump in bed with them. Ladies, if you are wearing a dress make it a point to not wear underwear and whisper in your sweetheart’s ear you forgot to put your panties on just as you walk into the party,. You will be the only lady he will be looking at all night. 

When you are at a holiday party with your sweetheart have a little fun and flirt with them. If you are across the room get their attention and make them feel as if you are undressing them with your eyes. Giving your partner unexpected attention like this will help both of you feel special.

Don’t forget to have a secret code between the two of you that lets the other know you are so ready to go home NOW and make mad passionate love to them!

Make it a point to read my blog on Friday because I will have a list of a few inexpensive things you need to have on hand to have a very romantic Christmas Eve or Day.

Do you have a blended family? How are you handling the discipline issues in your household? Do you find you and your husband argue a lot over how you should discipline the kids. Do you find the children trying to manipulate you or your husband because they want their life to be the way it used to be? They want Mom & Dad together not a step-mom or step-dad in their lives.

When blended families come together it isn’t always the happy togetherness you both had envisioned. The today show talks about the importance of communication between you and your sweetheart. Sitting down and setting rules ahead of time on how you will handle disciplining each other’s children.

Dana Points, editor-in-chief, of Parent Magazine and psychologist, Michelle Callahan, marriage expert and author of Ms Typed were on the Today Show and they bring up some good points on how to handle these issues.

Our daughter, Denise, married a wonderful man who had 2 children from a previous marriage and when she married him he had legal custody of both. She not only fell in love with Tom but his children too.

When she came into their lives she never required them to call her mom because she respected they already had a mom. If they would have chosen to call her mom and did so that would have been OK for her too. I think it is important to allow the children to decide what they want to call the step parent. Tom’s 2 children are grown now and they love and look to Denise as their second Mom.

Showing respect for each other is one of the most important things when living in a blended family.  If you and your spouse stand strong together as a couple the kids won’t be able to cause some of the issues blended families have.
Don’t forget to make time for each other; it will be easier to remember why you fell in love with your sweetheart. You both will be able to deal with whatever the kids may try.
