Things To Do To Celebrate Your Anniversary

Love is always in the air and if you're like us, we really enjoy having some versatility in our relationships when it comes to celebrating anniversaries. Do something fun or out of the box as every milestone in a relationship deserves some attention, right? Below are some of our fave ideas.

  1. Plan a trip out of the country. How fun would it be to make memories in a different country with your beau? Don't fall under the trap of "we can't afford it!" With businesses like Busabout, you can now travel in an affordable way.
  2. Take a cooking class!
  3. Go take a hike - literally! The Grand Canyon or places in Colorado and California are our fave spots to go on an adventurous escapade.
  4. Consider glamping at Joshua Tree.
  5. Take a cruise
Think there's more to add to the list? Leave your suggestions in the comment's section below!

10 First Date Ideas

We are living in the world of finding dates via apps like Tinder and and as convenient as these avenues of dating are, there is more past the virtual connection that must be established in person. Every season is dating season so why not make your first dates worthwhile? A first date should allow you to really get to know the person a little deeper than the service. We are not huge fans of doing the movies on a first date (or at least ONLY doing that) because it doesn't allow you to actually talk to the person. You're just awkwardly sitting next to a stranger focusing on a big screen. No bueno! We've compiled a list of some awesome first date ideas sure to get you excited about getting to know each other.

From TSS Reader Lillian McCurley (@sillyyyliiilly):

Summer time- stay cool with ice cream and a movie
Fall- pumpkin patch and s'mores
Winter- looking at Christmas lights with hot cocoa
Spring- go star gazing on a cool spring night or have a picnic

Our additions:

  • To lighten the mood, go to an amusement park! 
  • For a little competition consider hitting up the bowling lanes.
  • Happy hours are pretty harmless especially since the food and drinks are usually at a discount. It takes a little bit of the pressure off of the guy (if you're old fashioned and think he should pay) when the bill comes.
  • Depending on how long you've been talking, consider having a duo-cooking dinner at your place, his place, or a cooking class. You'll be talking and working together in the kitchen which is fun and you get to know each other on a different level.
  • Do a beach rendezvous! The calmness of the beach will hopefully calm nerves. Just bring a blanket, a frisbee, and some light food and snacks.
Whatever you decide, always be safe on your first date. Always tell someone when you're going out on a date so that someone can account for you in case anything should go wrong. Have a code with your friends to let them know if things aren't going well and you need to be rescued. If you can, carry pepper spray.

Have fun!

10 Date Night Movies to Watch at Home!

While we love movie theater dates, there is something about cozying up on the couch  enjoying your favorite movie with your significant other--right?! There are so many movies that can be snagged via Redbox, Netflix or OnDemand. All of these options are readily available, some by the click of your remote. We decided to help you out on some fun date night movies to watch at home. Check out our list below and let us know some of your favorites by commenting below!

1. Silver Linings Play Book: Not your typical "Romantic" movie so your boy would probably love it!  It's a great movie with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper dancing in it- who wouldn't love it?

2. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days: Well... who hasn't seen it??

3. Friends with Benefits: Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are in it... need we say more?

4. Sleepless in Seattle: THE Romantic Comedy. It's most likely every women's favorite chick flick!

5. 500 Days of Summer:  This is not a love story... this is a story about love. If you want something funny, cute, love, and REAL- this is your movie.

6. Say Anything: Yup, it's that one movie with John Cusack holding a 80s radio above his head confessing his love. If you want to watch a classic, this is it!

7. 10 Things I Hate About You: Old school favorite for sure! It's a witty comedy that shows how far a guy will go to get a date!

8. There's Something About Mary: All we have to say is Cameron Diaz + Ben Stiller = pure comedy. Definitely a good laugh from beginning to end.

9. My Best Friend's WeddingWhen a woman's long-time friend says he's engaged, she realizes she loves him herself... and sets out to get him, with only days before the wedding.

10. 50 First DatesHenry Roth (Adam Sandler) is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy (Drew Barrymore). They hit it off and Henry thinks he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.

20 Best Friend Date Ideas

We all have friends- maybe a big group of friends or maybe just a few friends, but we all have that friend that we can't live without... that's right, your best friend (aka your BFF, Bestie, "Biffle").  The one that always "gets it" and knows you from inside and out, the one that knows when you're down and lifts you up when you need it.  Having a best friend is something that everyone needs because... well, it's that special and amazing. 

Whether you're busy with your nose deep into your books for an exam or you're Miss Working (full time) Busy Bee, making time for your best friend is still so important!  Like you have date nights with your boyfriend, plan out a weekly date Best Friend Date Day/Night with your bestie!  Here are some of TSS' TOP 20 things to do with your best friend!

1. Gym sessions (help motivate each other!)
2. Make weekly manicure appointments with each other (save money & spend quality BFF time!)
3. At-home dinner nights
4. Chick-flick movie nights
5. Bestie photo shoots (get creative and make cute BFF photos like the ones above!)
6. The good ol' sleepover
7. Start a TV series together
8. Shopping
9. Cooking class
10. Late-night drives (maybe even an overnight trip!)
11. Junk food nights
12.  Pick a random, hole-in-the-wall restaurant that neither of you have ever been to
