Date Night Ideas and a Giveaway!

Valentine’s Day is only a month away! It seems like we just wrapped up Christmas but we’re already on to the next holiday! I do enjoy Valentine’s Day though… Sharing a little something with those I love is always a highlight.

This year I’m already ready with one of the hubs’ gifts! A custom date night love coupon book from Datevitation. {Don’t worry, he doesn’t read the blog unless I ask him to, so this won’t be a spoiler!}

Datevitation is such a fun idea! They are the first online platform where you can create a custom love coupon book for your significant other or even for a friend! There are over 200 unique date ideas to choose from, everything from a little something naughty for the husband to a little something fun for a girls’ night out idea.

Each coupon book comes packaged in a fun ready to gift box. There are over 60 book cover options to choose from with various holiday and other special occasion options. You can see I chose a Valentine’s Day cover with wedding rings for my hubs in the photo above.

Inside each cover is a page that you can customize with a note completely written by you, a simple To: From: message, or they even offer some really cute poems and prompts to get you started. I chose the To: From: option so I have space to hand write a love note myself. ;)

With over 200 fun dates to choose from it took me awhile to narrow it down to just five… But I think I chose a few that the hubs will especially love… Things like going out for a steak at a nice steakhouse. How convenient that they even provide a space to write down the date the coupon was used, right!?!

Or a movie of his choice at the theater. Just saying, I seriously doubt he chooses a chick flick… ;) But that’s completely ok!

I was really impressed with the layout of the Datevitation website. They set it up so you customize each feature of the book as you go along. Then they provide you a complete preview before placing your order. I was also impressed with the shipping! My love coupon book arrived in my mailbox in just a few short days! Perfect!

Today one lucky Truly Lovely reader has the chance to win their very own customized Datevitation coupon book!!! Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. The winner will be drawn and announced on Wednesday, January 23rd. This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents or those that can have their book shipped to a U.S. address.

Mrs. Smith’s Pies for the Holidays + A Giveaway!

This post brought to you by Mrs. Smith’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey there lovelies! Do you have your holiday menu all planned?

Might I make a suggestion for dessert? Mrs. Smith’s Signature Deep Dish pies!

MrsSmith.jpg

There are four different deep dish pie flavors; Dutch Apple with Caramel Sauce, Cherry Pie with Butter Fudge Sauce, Peach Pie with Cream Cheese Icing and Pumpkin Pie with Cream Cheese Icing!

My family had two clear favorites…

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Pies

Apple pie has always been a family favorite, but the Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie is a unique apple pie twist. It’s crumbly top crust combined with the Caramel Sauce is almost like an apple cobbler dessert without all the work! So yummy and my personal favorite!

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie

Some of my family members, including my dad, prefer a berry pie during the holiday season. That’s where the Deep Dish Cherry Pie came in. Drizzled with the Butter Fudge chocolate sauce a slice of this pie looked like it came straight from a high end restaurant. Very decadent!

Mrs. Smith's Deep Dish Cherry Pie

If you’re thinking of adding Mrs. Smith’s Deep Dish Pies to your holiday menu you can find a list of retailers here. They’re also on Facebook! For ideas on customizing your pies or other fun recipes, check them out on Pinterest!!!

Now, since you’re here ;) Mrs. Smith’s is offering one lucky winner a coupon for one of their Deep Dish pies, your choice as to flavor. AND a $50 Williams Sonoma gift card! In the spirit of being able to customize your dessert, Mrs. Smith’s is giving you a gift card to help customize your home!!!

Please enter using the Rafflecopter form below. Winning entries WILL be verified.

Entries include commenting on which of the 4 deep dish pies you will choose if you win, what you’ll spend you’re $50 Williams Sonoma gift card on if you win and following Mrs. Smith’s on Facebook and Pinterest.

A winner will be chosen and announced on December 27th!

Good Luck!!!!

Guilty pleasures, relaxation and a GIVEAWAY!

As the holidays get closer and closer… preparations for gifts, decorations, dinners, guests and more are all under way. It can get a little overwhelming, right? Sometimes you just need to chill out and take a break!!! At least I do.

Honestly, one of my favorite ways to recoup and relax during the cooler months is to sit on the couch with a warm drink and a magazine! PEOPLE Magazine is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! They always have the scoop on what your favorite celebrities are up to… who they’re dating, what they’re wearing! You can find out all the latest juicy Hollywood news in just one issue.

I know it might seem a little bit shallow, but I kind of pride myself on knowing the latest celebrity gossip. Nobody wants to be the last to know who J.Lo is dating… especially if he’s so much younger! ;) Or who this year’s recipient is of the Sexiest Man Alive title! Bradley Cooper is definitely a favorite… ;)

Sure, I care how the economy is doing, I worry about crime statistics, I even stress over political issues… But personally, I need a break from the heavier news headlines from time to time! Don’t you??? And PEOPLE Magazine is often the perfect distraction!

Speaking of the Sexiest Man Alive… PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue will be available in stores on November 15th! How’s that for ‘needing a break from the stressful holiday planning’ timing! It will only be available for two weeks so don’t miss out on getting your own copy!

I already told you Bradley Cooper is one of my favorites… ;)
But who do YOU think will win the Sexiest Man Alive for this year?
If you could have a vote in choosing who it might be, who would YOU vote for??
Hugh Jackman is never a bad choice! ;)

To celebrate the upcoming  PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue they’re giving one lucky Truly Lovely winner a $20 gift card to Walgreens!
To enter you only have to answer one question….
Giveaway will end at midnight on November 20th and winner will be announced that day!
Please enter using the Rafflecopter form below and good luck!

I love sending and receiving mail!!!
It’s another of those traits my sweet Granny instilled in me…
Sending and receiving holiday cards especially is at the top of my snail mail list!

I think Photo Christmas Cards are definitely my favorite. I love to choose my favorite photos from the last year and send them along with a holiday message to our nearest and dearest! Last year it was wedding photos… the year before, engagement photos… this year might be tougher to choose because we’ve done so many fun things!

Every year I order our holiday cards through Shutterfly! I love the fun themes they have that can easily be customized with your own photos.

A few of my favorites for this year are…


Surrounded with Love


Sparkling Snowflakes


Bright Merry Wishes

I can’t wait to get our 2012 Holiday cards ordered and sent to friends!!!

Shutterfly has a special offers page you should definitely check out! It has deals on cards and other stationary items, but also discounts for fun photo gifts for the holiday season!
