Each team member should pick which hand he or she will be using and put the other behind his or her back. The player must pick up the cotton ball with their nose and then transfer it to the bowl 8-10 feet away.

I sincerely wish that my high school prom could have been spent with my husband as my date.
So I recreated prom night incorporating all the traditional activities and including some more adult appropriate fun. I truly hope that each of you will take a moment to check out our blog and start planning the next date night with your spouse.
I asked my husband to our patio prom by trashing his car (while he was at work) in a traditional sense. We are full of fun ideas to make dating your spouse exciting and fulfilling.
We had our prom pictures taken by a friend, we had a delicious smorgasbord of food for dinner including prom "souvenirs", then we danced the night away on our patio (after I made a quick dress change into something my mother would have never approved of, wink! There is something for everyone on our site of dating wonders!
