Never Been Kissed


As we all know, February is the month of LOVE and what better way to end the month than to watch an all time favorite flick, Never Been Kissed!  It has just the right amount of smiles, laughs, and romance to make everyone a fan (plus it brings back all your favorite high school memories, so much fun ;-) ).  If you haven’t seen it before, you are TOTALLY missing out!!!  What’s great about this movie is you can get it almost anywhere – even FREE at your local library!  Woot, woot!!  We Divas are all about free stuff!

“Will you watch this movie with me?” – Invite

  • Invite your spouse to the date by leaving a note saying “Will you watch this movie with me?” – kind of like you were still in high school asking someone to a dance or to go on a date.  Leave the movie with a baseball glove, ball, and/or bat OR high school memorabilia such as diploma, tassels, graduation hat OR letterman’s jacket or old cheerleader uniform. If you want any ideas, Kari did an amazing Patio Prom Date that would be a great resource.
  • Another option would be to use your old high school pictures and attach them or place them by the invite and movie.  Jostens – Yourself Yearbooks helps you make the perfect high school pictures!
  • Include some quotes from the movie using this site.

“I’m the coleslaw king of the world!” – Food

  • Have dinner be all items you would eat in high school…hamburgers, fries, and shakes.
  • An awesome snack during the movie would be to make (what I like to call) Little Smokie Bites.  Serve in a fun baseball bowl.


1- Little Smokies (Vienna Sausages)

2- Refrigerated crescent rolls

3- Take one little smokie and roll it into one crescent roll, place on cookie sheet

4- Continue until all rolls are used.  Cook according to crescent rolls’ directions, and DONE.  Yummy!


“Hey, Merkin ain’t jerkin’, he’s workin’.” – Before movie activities

  • Get “worked” up for the movie by playing catch before you watch the movie.
  • Go to the batting cages and hit some balls.
  • Go to a high school baseball game (if in season).  For some other ideas, check out Kristen’s date where they went to a high school football game and had a blast!

“The right guy, he’s out there.  I’m just not gonna go kiss a whole bunch of losers to get to him.” – Kissing game

  • Make a sign that says “Kissing Couch” and hang it on the couch you will be watching the movie on.  Then before, during, or after the movie have a ‘kissing’ lesson: peck each other, lay a ‘big’ one on him, passionate, etc. and talk about what you did and didn’t like about the kisses.  In Kari’s Camp-out Date she did a fun kissing activity that would work well here!

“Excuse me, I have to go die now.” – High school items

  • Go through each others’ year books and laugh at all the embarrassing stuff you did and how you looked in high school.
  • Put on a letter man’s jacket, cheerleader uniform, or anything that came from your high school era.  Make sure you reference Erika’s Return to High School Date for other amazing ideas!
  • A fun twist would be to dress up as a ‘naughty’ school girl to get excited for the ‘after movie’ activity ;-) .

  1. I love that movie, it would be fun to pretend we are in highschool again.

      @Sexy Christian Wife – it’s SO much fun to pretend to be in high school again – less cares in the world and a LOT more flirtatious! LOL

  2. Chica Bear says:

    What a neat idea! I particularly like the thought of putting a “Kissing Couch” sign. My husband will love it.

  3. Kari Kari says:

    Awe, way to go Cami!! Nice work, girlie! This is so well put together and I love this movie!

  4. Kiirsten Kiirsten says:

    Drew Barrymore is hilarious in this show. Thanks for all the fun ideas!

    This gave me a fantastic idea for another movie that I think my husband and I might really enjoy! My hubby is in the Army and generally only watches things with action or military related, or something with some comedy! I on the other hand don’t like those as much, so I actually remembered the movie In The Army Now with Pauly Shore! I think it would be a perfect mix of military and comedy that we both can enjoy (Pauly Shore is one of my faves)! I could do an entire comedic spin on military things, which shouldn’t be hard for this military family! Thanks so much for posting this and giving me this awesome idea, LOL! :D

    I’m new to your sight and SO excited to have found it! I just have one question: What to do with the kids to get an evening at home alone?

    • Cami Cami says:

      @Deb- Trying to figure out what to do with the kids is always a tough situation. There are 2 things my hubby and I do a lot…1- depending on their age, you can put on a movie for them in another room and then go watch your own movie, or 2- (and this is the one we do most frequently) We have our date night after we put them to sleep. To really make a night ‘stand out’ as a date night and not just another night, I make sure that the activities fpr the date are all ready to go beforehand so the night is dedicated to the date and not getting last minute things ready and missing out on time together. I hope this helps and glad you like our site :) !
