A SAMPLE of the The Dating Divas Blog....
One day, I was watching The Sound of Music with my kids and the classic song, "These Are a Few of My Favorite Things" was playing. It got me thinking about my favorite things and even husband's favorite things! I quickly jotted down a list of things that I knew my husband loved. I then challenged myself to plan a whole week worth of fun and a date for us, all for under $10. My idea started on a Monday and ended on a Friday.
What You'll Need:

*Five of your man's favorite things.

*Print the book, "You Are One of My Favorite Things" click HERE!
Cut each of the "pages" out & write on them.  These will be the notes you give to your spouse each day.
*I saw a similar book on Studio 5 for Father's Day, so I just changed it enough to fit this date.

*A fun poem explaining to your spouse what this week is all about.

I placed the poem in his car before he left for work.
This poem states that this week will be a celebration of his favorite things. (Each day he will be receiving a favorite thing along with a note. He must keep each note because the notes will be payment for the date on Friday.) On his way to work, he called to thank me for the poem and expressed his excitement for the coming week!
Later that night, I placed his first treat by the bathroom sink along with a page from the book.

I placed his favorite cereal out for breakfast with a new note.

Inside his lunch I left Hershey bars and you guessed it...another note!

My man loves to read the sports section each morning, so I left a package of heavenly coconut M&M's, along with another note.

The last note was left with some of his favorite jerky.

Onto our actual date!!

The first thing we did was head to Wienerschnitzel. Each week in the mail I get awesome coupons, so dinner was less than $5! My husband LOVES the chili cheese dogs and they did not disappoint!

The next thing we did was head to my husband's favorite store...BEST BUY. That's right! We spent over an hour looking at TVs, music, name it! Best Buy is my man's version of Disneyland!

The last thing we did was head home. Once we were home, we headed for the family room. We then laid down and listened to music. My husband LOVES music and we went through his IPOD. We talked about songs we love and why. We did this for over two hours! Even if you don't have an IPOD, you can use the Internet or CD's.

The best about this date was celebrating my husband's favorite things! I knew it would be a hit because everything we did was centered around things he loves. At the end of our date, my husband informed me that we would be doing my favorite things the next day! Wow, talk about a win-win for both of us!

Once the week was over, I collected the notes back and put them together to make my book. I lined them all up on the right side of a piece of scrapbooking paper & glued the left edge of the pages so they were secure.
