April Showers bring...ROMANCE!

Sometimes, I think our guys just need a little anticipation. I don't say that because I read their minds...it's just that my husband told me so. And, to me, he IS the expert. In fact, today's post is HIS clever idea.

Playing off the theme of "April Showers", this idea will have you giving your husband a very interesting weather forecast...

I took a clip of a weather forecast online (I used the 7-day forecast from weatherbug.com) and photoshopped it to my heart's content! This was the result (look closely...this isn't just any normal forecast).

I placed it in an envelope with a note, "Thought you might be interested in the forecast for Monday."


Custom Options: How to Create Your Own

(Okay, people... I'm not a digital design expert or teacher, so I'm going to give this my best shot...)


*If you have Windows 7, use your "Snip Tool" to copy the screen image of your forecast.
*If you have Windows XP or older, click shift+PrintScreen button and then open Microsoft Word and click paste or CTRL V. Your forecast image should appear.
*You can edit the image in Word and then print.
*If you pasted the image into Word, but want to edit it in Photoshop, save the document as a PDF, and then open that file in Photoshop for editing.

Here is a Before & After of my forecast:

If you really want to play up this idea, you can pair THIS (Starry Night) date night to match your evening forecast perfectly!

Hey, maybe these April Showers will bring some flowers after all...

Tried this last night but gave it to him a few days previous to create "anticipation" as you put it. IT WORKED! He mentioned DAILY how excited he was for Sunday's rain shower. THANKS!
