The Dating Divas know that life can get pretty crazy once you get passed the "honeymoon" stage and it is hard to take the time to really DATE your spouse.
We gave our boys their first mission card attached to a camouflaged toy car over breakfast. This mission card gave them strict instructions to report to duty at their bunk at hours 4: Once they arrived for duty they were given a "carrier" or gift bag with "Special Forces Training Gear" written on the outside and their second mission card attached to it.
The second mission card gave them instructions to put on their assigned "gear"- which consisted of an A-Team t-shirt that we made with vinyl lettering, camo shorts and a personalized dog tag.
Once we were all dressed in our "gear" it was time to report for "Combat Training" at Wahooz. It was a kick! We trained in go-carts, batting cages, the Max Flight simulator, and the arcade. Our third mission was for our soldiers to treat their S-2 Commanding Officers to dinner at the local Canteen.
This was their reward for passing Combat Training.

We let them take us to a Bistro downtown that is very loud and alive. Just the place that a group of trained Special Forces soldiers might hang out.
Now that we put our boys to work earning their Green Berets rights it was time to give them a break and let them enjoy someone else doing the work. Mission 4 ordered us to tactical intelligence training and video surveillance duty at the movie theater. This is where all of their hard work gets to be paid off.
We settled in and relaxed watching the new A-Team movie. Their fifth mission card was a congratulations for completing their training to become a Special Forces Green Berets.
I wanted to create a romantic and fun "prom" experience for us since we didn't get to go to our high school proms together. I started by asking my hubby to prom in a super fun and super corny way. We all remember how high school works - haha! I slapped some lipstick on my lips and went to town with kissy marks all over the poster board. Once he was home from work, we were both dressed to the hilt and the kids were in bed our official prom date began.
A friend of mine stopped over to take our prom pictures [because prom just isn't complete without the pictures! Then we headed out onto our back patio for dinner. I had the patio decorated with lights, a large poster with our theme and stars, our dinner table, candles and music. It looked as close to prom as a patio could get! Our dinner consisted of a variety of hors d'oeuvre items, fresh fruit and desserts. I used what I could out of my own fridge without cooking and picked up the rest from a local deli so I wouldn't have to cook.
I made personalized bowls and plates for the occasion that also served as our prom souvenirs. We had a very romantic dinner over candlelight overlooking the city We have a fabulous view!
Then I had a Prom playlist that incorporated music from our wedding reception and songs that I love now. We danced under the stars with a gorgeous view of the city lights. I couldn't have been more romantic! Once our prom came to an end and the clean up was finished there was only one thing left to make our night complete. What is that might you ask? We got in the backseat of our car that was parked in our garage and had our prom night make-out session. Keep in mind these ideas are just a drop in the bucket compared to our vast database of ideas to put the spark back in your marriage!
