Too Sweet Tuesday ~ James Bond

I think one of the main ways to keep a marriage alive is keeping the "spark" there & reminding each other why you fell in love! So, let's get to it, shall we?  Whose hubby out there is a James Bond fan?  If so, here is a fun date idea for you.  

My hubby is a HUGE Bond fan, so a couple of years ago, for Valentine's Day, I decided to surprise him with a Bond-theme date!  When I started planning, I thought, where do the majority of James Bond movies take place?  A casino, of course.  Now, we're NOT gamblers, but I thought it may be fun to go a play a few games, just for fun!  We live about an hour away from Harrah's Cherokee Casino, so that was our destination.  

I started out by giving him "mission cards" that I made.  I titled each operation from different Bond movies. On the morning of Valentine's Day, I put the first mission card in his truck along with his new "license" and a CD of Bond music.  (P.S. he still listens to it in his truck 2.5 years later!)

When he got home from work, I had picked out the suit I wanted him to wear on our date (black, of course), and attached his second mission card to it.

When we got to our destination, I gave him the third mission card...

Here we are at the casino.  Psst......my secret mission?  Eat dinner at Paula Deen's Kitchen, which was inside the casino!  A win/win!!! :)

We had so much fun with this date, I hope it inspires you to create a unique date for your Sweetie, too!
