Domestic Violence is NOT Okay!

Domestic Violence is NOT Okay!

I’m not going to go into details today, but this was not me personally, but I just wanted to remind everyone that…. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT OKAY It is not okay for your partner to hit you, slap you, punch you or anything like that at all. EVER! I don’t care if you did something wrong even, it is still not okay! YOU ARE WORTHY OF BEING TREATED NICELY! Again, no matter what you did not do or what you did do, you do not deserve to be physically abused by your partner! It is never okay! It is never … Continue Reading →

My Version of Hubby’s #SwitchersRemorse

Have you ever wished you had not made a change to something else? Did you think the grass was greener on the other side of the fence? How long did it take you to realize you made a mistake and you had switcher’s remorse?

(DISCLOSURE: I am being compensated.) I am sure there must be some things I feel like that about, but I have not been … Continue Reading →

Date Night at the Shooting Range?

Date Night at the Shooting Range?

Last night I took Hubby out for a date night. He knew it was date night but I did not give him any details other than that ahead of time. Boy was he surprised with what I planned for the evening! If you do not plan date nights with your spouse/partner I highly suggest that you do. I understand if you have kids that it is harder to do, but really try to make time at least once a month if you can.

He can do that too. I am impressed!

He can do that too. I am impressed!

One thing I have noticed that I am doing lately is sharing with Hubby when he does something that is impressive to me. These may not be giant things, but they are things I notice. Apparently this has a fairly positive impact for him because he has mentioned them back to me afterwards and told me that he liked that I told him. Marriage means we are constantly having to stay on our toes I think and learn about ourselves – in a good way. Now I have actually been pretty good over the years about thanking him for doing … Continue Reading →
