Did you get the items I told you to get on Wednesday, June 27, 2012? Once you have seen the whole plan you will want to run out and get the things you don’t have on hand.

Here is a reminder of everything you will need to create your own fireworks in your bedroom:

• Romantic Music

• Candles (red, white & blue ones would be nice)

• Red, White or Blue Lingerie

• Red or White Feather Boa

• Purchase a Box of Rockets and or Missiles from the Fireworks Stand or a Picture of them will do too.

• Something Sparkly to Drink, i.e. Champagne, Beer or Sparkling Cider

• 4th of July Card

Write a note in the 4th of July card that says:

“Happy 4th of July, sweetheart! Let’s make love until we create our own rocket of explosion that only we know how to do to each other.”

Wrap up the box of rockets and put your card on top or put a picture of firework rockets in the card.
 
In the morning give your sweetheart the card along with the rockets or picture to your sweetie pie. If you purchased the rockets enjoy them with your family in the evening outside but I can guarantee when the rocket is lite you will both be thinking of the fun you will have later with each other creating your own explosion.

In the evening:

Light the candles turn on the music, get dressed in that special red, white or blue lingerie, wrap the red or white boa around you and pour your sparkling drink in two glasses to enjoy.

 May you have a very happy 4th of July together!

Keep those sparks flying!

Wednesday, June 20th was officially the first day of summer! A time to let your hair down, relax and walk barefooted in the sand. What better way to celebrate summer than to plan a date around the beach, lake, or river and enjoy what nature has to offer us and it is totally free.

Plan a picnic lunch or dinner at the water.  Put on your sandals, bathing suit or shorts and grab your sweetie and head out to cooler waters to relax and have fun together.

Ahead of time make a plan with your sweetheart that you will collect things while you are at the water to use as decorations in your home. You will have memories of summers gone by during those cold winter months that will bring a warm smile to each of you gathering these special little collectables.

Here are some ideas of things to gather while visiting the beach, lake or river:

Seashells

Rocks – Write on a smooth rock, I Love You, You Rock or your favorite nickname that you use for each other, i.e. Sweetie Pie, Bear, Hug a Bug, Honey Bunny, etc.  Once you have written on the rock put a clear coat of enamel on it and use as a paper weight or on top of a stack of books on your table.

Branches from Trees – Leave them in their natural color or spray paint them white, silver or gold and put them in a vase.

Leaves – Leave them in their natural color or spray paint them white, silver or gold and put them in a frame to hang on the wall.

Driftwood

Sea glass

Metal Detector  – Extra money to put away for your romantic weekend you have been saving all year long.

When you get home clean and shine everything and put it in a bowl and display it in a special spot for the two of you to enjoy.

Don’t forget to bring a camera to take pictures of the two of you playing in the sand or the beautiful sunset over the lake or beach to hang it up in a special spot in your home.

SurpriseKiss.com is always looking for ways for you to save money when traveling and still stay and eat at nice places. There is one place I haven’t mentioned yet and it is a great place to start with before and while you are traveling. This is a place where there will be discounts at hotels, restaurants and local attractions.

So the next time you are traveling stop at the Visitors Center and find out what type of deals they have for you in the area you are visiting. One year Larry and I decided to visit Northern California in our car. We had never been above San Francisco and wanted to explore beyond our normal destinations and see areas we had never seen.

Our stays were pretty much planned but there was one community we hadn’t made reservations yet and that was the Napa Valley. As we drove through picturesque Napa valley we stopped in a cute little community called Yountville and checked out a beautiful Resort Hotel and Spa and went inside to get prices. The quotes they gave us were above our price range so we reluctantly left the Hotel and started to look for another place.

We drove on to Napa and check out a couple of Bed & Breakfasts but they didn’t stand out as a place we wanted to stay at.  Since the afternoon was getting late we stopped at the Visitors Center and talked to one of the customer service representative there about a place to stay for the night.

They were able to get us a wonderful Resort Hotel which included a spa tub, a bottle of wine in our room, fireplace, and a private patio along with hors d’oeuvres and wine in the evening and a continental breakfast in the morning at a rate that was half the price it normally goes for.
 
The hotel it turns out was in Yountville and it was the same one we had stopped at earlier!

The next time you are planning a trip to an area you have never visited and are not sure where you want to stay stop by the Visitors Center in the area you are visiting. You may get lucky and get a fantastic deal like we did.

Inside the card write:
