Hopefully you got everything your needed for your very romantic Halloween evening with your sweetheart. If you are not ready then read the blog I wrote last Friday.

To help heat things up a bit tonight you may want to make a great cup of hot chocolate.

Warm Your Bodies Hot Chocolate

6 tablespoons instant hot chocolate mix
2 Cups milk
2 teaspoons chocolate syrup
2 ounce peppermint schnapps (optional)
Whipped Cream
Mini Chocolate Chips

Slowly heat the milk in a saucepan. Put 3 tablespoons of instant hot chocolate and 1 teaspoon chocolate syrup in each cup and pour warm milk over the top, then add 1 oz of peppermint schnapps and stir. Top with whipped cream and mini chocolate chips.

What better way to feel all warm and cozy with each other on Halloween night than sipping a good cup of hot chocolate while sitting in front of a fireplace or a grouping of candles.

May you and your sweetheart have a very romantic Halloween evening together.

Did you pick up everything I told you to get? If you didn’t here is the list of the things you will need to have a romantic Halloween evening.

• Halloween Card

• Witches Hat

• Black Lingerie (Ladies) or Black Silk Boxers (Men)

• Cinnamon Candles

• Edible Potions and Lotions in Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, etc. (Kama Sutra Massage Cream or oil can be purchase usually at your local drugstore or go to a Lingerie Shop and see what they have to offer)

Write inside your Halloween card and then give it to your sweetheart in the morning.

“Happy Halloween sweetheart, grab the broom and we will fly together into our bedroom and have a very deliciously bewitching hour of love.”

HMMM….the anticipation….

Light the candles; put out the edible massage cream or oil on the bedside table.

Ladies slip on your sexy black lingerie and don’t forget to put on your witches hat.

Men grab those silk boxers and lay out the witches’ hat for your sweetheart along with your favorite lingerie you like seeing her in and let the fun begin.

May you have a very delicious and bewitching evening together……

Last weekend Larry & I needed to spend a little quiet together. So we decided to go out to a new wine bar in San Luis Obispo and enjoy a glass wine along with a cheese and fruit platter. It was a very well decorated and hip place, very modern with wine bottles cut in half and a candle inside each bottle. The one thing they were missing was live music or some good soulful jazz playing in the background.

We enjoyed our small cheese platter and glass of local wine but we walked away with $40 less in our pocket. We could have enjoyed the same evening if we had stayed home and replicated the menu for a whole lot less.

Not much money and no time to go out? Once the children are in bed lay out a platter of delicious cheeses and pour a glass of wine, turn on your favorite tunes and have an evening that is a little bit different from the rest.

Here are some suggestions:

• Small Wedge of Brie
• Sharp Cheddar Cheese
• Blue Cheese
• Grapes
• Dried Fruit
• Almonds
• French baguette or Water Crackers

Spending a little quiet time together, not much money spent and lots of relaxation is something very pleasurable. Ah…..just what Surprise Kiss ordered for the two of you.

Don’t forget to check back next Friday, 10/26/12, to see the suggestion I have for you to have a romantic Halloween with your sweetheart.

On Wednesday I said life can get too serious with all the responsibilities of work, kids, house work, bills, etc. You and your sweetheart need to find time to have fun together.

Here are some suggestions on how to bring out the child in your relationship:

1. Play Miniature Golf
2. Ride Go Carts
3. Go Out for a Burger, Fries & a Malt
4. Go Bowling
5. Bicycle Ride
6. Swing on the Swings at the Park
7. Play Basket Ball
8. Play Tic Tac Toe (see below)

We all remember playing Tic Tac Toe when we were kids but have you ever thought of kicking it up a notch? Pour your drink of choice and have fun together.

Sexy Tic Tac Toe

Play this simple game the same way you would play Strip Poker. Whoever loses will have to remove one item of clothing. You keep playing until one of you has nothing on and then that person gets to slowly finish undressing the other. Need I say more?

It doesn’t matter if you lose or win both of you will end up having a “Hot Night” tonight.

You’ve got to play a little and laugh a little to keep the inner child in your relationship alive.

Keep those sparks flying!

Last week I was talking to a co-worker, Lydia, about what she did over the weekend. This is a woman who has a very responsible position in the company and is a very hard worker. She works 40++ hours a week and then goes home to take care of her husband who is very ill. She just doesn’t get a lot of personal fun time and most importantly the special time she needs and wants with her sweetheart.

When you look around and start talking to couples you find out real quick most don’t have the time to have fun. It is work, kids, house work, bills, etc. Or like my friend her spouse is just too sick to get out and do anything most of the time. No wonder people are falling out of love.

Couples need to have time fun together.

As Lydia and I talked she mentioned that her husband felt really good over the weekend and they played all weekend long. They went out to breakfast in the morning and then out to dinner with friends in the evening at the Chumash Casino nearby. After dinner they played the slots and won a little bit of money. The next morning he was still feeling well enough to go out to breakfast. She told me she couldn’t remember the last time she had this much laughter and fun. She felt like a teenager again, there was a huge smile on her face.

When was the last time you and your sweetheart found a moment to have fun together? Don’t let life’s responsibilities get in the way of your relationship. Make time to laugh, play and enjoy each other. Do things that make you feel young no matter what your age is.

On Friday, I will give you some dates that will make you feel like a kid again. Don’t grow old before your time and don’t make your relationship feel old too. Bring out the fun, laughter and love we all need to keep our relationship going in this hectic world we live in. Your inner child will thank you…..

Keep those sparks flying!
