diy: valentines scavenger hunt.

(i know i said garlands were next, but i decided to switch. they will be coming soon though promise!) 

last year for v day, i sent mister b on a scavenger hunt. boy, that was fun!

not only was it fun for him, but i had a blast making the clues, picking out his favorite candies, and sending him on my wild goose chase! obviously there are a million different ways to do a scavenger hunt, but here's how i did ours.

supplies needed: 
* paper (red and pink to be festive)
* his favorite candy, treat, anything
* puzzle of sorts (homemade is more fun and personal!)
* a grand prize 

steps: 
* come up with the clues. they can rhyme, or if that makes your brain hurt - they don't.
whatever your little heart desires.

now, don't copy mine because it's way more coming up with your own, but below is the list of my clues.  
(i only did five because our apartment isn't all that big... but you can do as many as you like.)



put by the front door:
 "you have now begun your very own valentines scavenger hunt. i know, sweet huh? it shouldn't take very long, but don't miss any clues or you won't find your grand prize! your first clue is on the couch. good luck soldier!"

#1: roses are red, violets are blue, for your next clue look in a _ _ _ _. (hint: 4 letters, rhymes with blue.)
#2: february 14th, full of red and pink - to find the next clue, look under the _ _ _ _.
#3: good job! you found me, there's only one more - to finish this chase, look behind the _ _ _ _.
#4: haha, just kidding - i'm making things hard, to end this chase go west 12 yard(s). *ok, maybe feet - but that doesn't rhyme.*
#5: yay! you did it - now wasn't this fun, put the pieces together and your all done! *after completing the puzzle, look on the back to find your valentine!*

* with each clue you can attach the candy/treat - i put his favorite treats with each one and a piece to this puzzle:

all materials found at wal-mart.
back - with baby pic of yours truly

some may think this is a tad cheesy - but we had so much fun with it... i might even do another one this year :)

enjoy!


sincerely,
mrs. b

  12. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

    ===> (The secret obsession that makes men fall in love) - (What men look for in “The One”) <=====

    And when you know how to satisfy this life long obsession...

    He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

    And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

    Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:

    ===> (The most powerful emotion for men) - (Men fall in love with women who do THIS): <=====

  13. It’s no secret that a man’s ego has a powerful pull on him.

    In fact this hardwired need to impress and to WIN is so deeply embedded into the male mind...

    That nearly everything a man truly desires is based around this biological “drive” to prove, succeed and to win.

    It’s why so many men become workaholics, gym junkies or become obsessed with their hobbies.

    But what most women don’t know...

    ...is how deeply this “drive” is connected to his love, desire, and attraction for the woman in his life.

    And I’m about to show you how you can “tap into” a man’s ege to refocus that same drive and gut level obsession...

    ...on pleasing you, romancing you, and proving his love for you like you’re his sole purpose in life.

    Here’s how: ==> The “Game ON!” Signal That Makes Him Obsessed With Winning Your Love ]

    Ana

    P.S. When you tap into a man’s ego this way, you can cause him to literally become obsessed with proving his love for you. So please don’t use this on a man unless you are ready for something serious.
