Date Your Mate #1

Date Your Mate Challenge
is back!

One of the biggest surprises to me last weekend at Creative Estates, was how many people asked me to start up "Date Your Mate Fridays" again! I was so flattered and happy that:

 a) you missed these posts.
b) you desire to date your mate!

So, CLICK HERE to find out the basics of my Date Your Mate Challenge. Then join the fun! Rules for playing along...

1) Complete the weekly challenge and post about it. Must be your post - any fun or creative way to celebrate your marriage and complete the weekly challenge counts!

2) Must be linked to your specific "Date Your Mate" post, not just your blog's URL.

3) Linky is open until the following Friday - so feel free to post and link up anytime during the week. I will post about how I completed the challenge and feature a few of your "dates" in each new Friday's post.

4) Grabbing the button and/or linking to the party is fabulously appreciated, but not required. ;-)

Date Your Mate Challenge - Week #1 Don't Worry, Be Happy

This week, do something that lets your mate know they are appreciated and nurtured. Something that lets him know you are all together in LOVE with the institution of marriage - and HIM! Think of something you know will make him happy, and DO IT!

Right about now, if you are like me, you are thinking to yourself:

"One kid's favorite shirt has gone AWOL. And in between hollering out a second kid's middle name letter by letter (so she can write it down), I'm changing a diaper and changing the channel. I've forgotten to mail the car payment for over a week now. And the treadmill has been calling my name since I hit snooze for the first of umpteen times this morning. On top of all this, I'm supposed to commit random acts of kindness for my husband?!"

Well, yes, that's the whole point.
That's why I call it the Date Your Mate Challenge!
Are you up for it?
I hope so!
The more who play along - the more ideas we'll get to make marriage fun.
Game ON!
