9 April Fool's Day Pranks for Your Boyfriend

9 April Fools' Day Pranks for Your Boyfriend

Who better to prank than the one you love?

April Fools' Day is right around the corner!

If you're anything like me, I plan for this jovial holiday pretty far in advance. Each year I focus on a different victim, and this year it's my boyfriend (sorry about last year, mom). Whether it's one big prank or several mediocre ones, I don't mess around. The key to a great prank is making sure that it's something so routine that they won't think twice about it. Remember, you don't want them to be so mean that they question staying with you. These are some of my favorite pranks for a partner.

1. Just Married

Make sure that he's backed his car into a spot, garage, or wherever he's parked. If not, say you need to borrow his car and then do it for him. The rest is a piece of cake. Make the sign as creative as you'd like. It has to say "HONK" for a congrats, for love, or something along those lines. For extra points, add some tin cans attached to string.

2. "Sorry for the damage"

While he's in class or at work, put a note underneath his windshield wiper saying, "sorry for the damage." Now this joke has two levels, if you dare to do both. Level one: Watch him look aimlessly for the damage and laugh at his expense. Level two: Add a number to a local sex shop, escort service, or something along those lines. When he calls to find out who did the "damage", he'll be in for quite a surprise.

3. Something Fishy

If your boyfriend's room smells a little (who am I kidding, of course it does), leave a can of this wonderful air freshener out for him. You can purchase a can of fish-scented spray here, and then just switch the labels. For only $6.99 you can't beat the look on his face when he sprays copious amounts of it after a trip to the bathroom. In scents such as shrimp, garlic oil, crawfish, and salty shad, this bottle of bait spray will be well worth it.

4. Chewbacca Contest

Place this sign around town in the morning at places that are sure to gather some contestants. For example, a bar, behind a bathroom stall door, or even under people's windshield wipers. Soon enough the picture of the Chewbacca contest will hit Twitter and Snapchat. He'll be going crazy by the end of the day trying to figure out why he's getting loud moans and groans in his mailbox.

5. Fake Pregnancy Test

For the risky ones only! If you're willing to test how far he can go without freaking out, be daring and try this one. You can get a fake pregnancy test online, just like this one from Spencer's for $4.99.

6. Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

My boyfriend's favorite meal is chicken parm. After a long day, tell your partner you'll take care of dinner and they can just relax. Cut up some cardboard into chicken cutlet sized pieces, and then prepare them the same way you would with a regular chicken cutlet. Fry it up and serve it hot. My boyfriend eats anything, so I really hope he realizes it's not chicken after the first bite.

7. A Creamy Treat

Another one of my boyfriend's favorites: Boston Cream donuts. You can do this with any type of donut, really. For the pros, purchase a baby syringe used for medicine and fill it up with mayo. For those of you that are either cheap or lazy (like myself), grab a big Ziploc bag and fill it up with mayo. Then cut a tiny triangle off of one of the bottom corners of the bag. Just poke a little hole in the side of the donut with a knife, and begin to fill it up with creamy deliciousness. The look on their face after a big bite of a rich and creamy filled donut will surely be spoiled in no time.

8. Bugs in the lampshade

Whether your boyfriend wants to admit it or not, I'm sure he's not the biggest fan of roaches, spiders, and other bugs. This prank is really easy and you only need paper and scissors. (For the pros, you can use adhesive paper from the craft store.) Cut out the shape of the bug you'd like, or google a picture to trace. Tape it on the inside of the lampshade, and bend the legs a little to make it look more realistic.

9. Car for Sale

Pick up some of the washable paint for windows, and get to his car when he's not around. Write "For Sale" on the back window with a ridiculously low price like $4,000. Add the number to a sex shop, or an escort service as the contact. He won't get the calls, but he'll have to worry about washing it off ASAP.

Whether you choose to try one of these pranks, or all nine, remind your partner how much you love them throughout the day. Then they can't get mad at you! Happy pranking!

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

10 pros of being the baby Sibling

Pretty sure I'm the OG Boss Baby.


Growing up I wished I had a younger brother or sister and, of course, that did not happen. But now I look back and realize that being the youngest in your house is actually the best thing ever. If you're the baby of your family you definitely can relate to these 10 things.

1. You get away with anything and everything.


Because how could you possibly get in trouble when you have an older sibling(s) to blame? Just fake cry and boom it's their fault.

2. You don't have any one who bothers you and your friends.


I 100% used to hang out in the same room as my sister and her friends just because I could annoy my sister and get away with it.

3. There's no one under you to have spy on you.


Again, I 100% spied on my sister and her boyfriend from every window in the house.

4. You get to do things at a younger age than your older sibling(s).


Because your parents don't want to hear all of the complaining. Fun fact: I got my first laptop at a way younger age than my sister.

5. Your parents don't micromanage you.


Not they have two or more kids to watch after and not just one, so that means more freedom.

6. You get all their clothes.


When I was little I didn't like this, but now that I'm older I actually like it, I was a pretty fly 3rd grader in my purple Jesus is my homeboy shirt.

7. You learn from their mistakes.


Learning from your older sibling(s) mistakes is hands down on elf the best things ever, because not only will not get in trouble from doing it BUT you end up looking like the better child, and that gives you bragging rights ;)

8. You don't have to share.


Selfish but true. I would say that sharing is caring but I don't care.

9. You have less responsibilities.


The older sibling(s) should do the most right? Isn't that how that works?

10. No one is going to mess with you.


Having an older sibling(s) is like having you're own personal body guard.
