One of the things my hubby and I have been trying to do is date night on a budget. It is absolutely possible to enjoy each other’s time out and on the low end of the dollar spectrum. I have found that for many, a high school football game doesn’t cross their mind for a date night. In fact,… Continue reading
I have to admit I love the opportunities that Southern California offers. One such opportunity arose at a golf tournament my husband was attending for work. He won tickets to the Long Beach Festival of the Arts. I love art and getting to go to the festival for free was an awesome opportunity to get to see local artists and… Continue reading
If you have been following Wife, Mom, House…Oh My! then it won’t come as a surprise that I am a major proponent of dating your spouse. Being in love does not end with saying “I do.” or “I’m pregnant.” So why does the romance seem to? Why is it that we allow our lives to become comfortable and stagnant?… Continue reading
I think that as wives, most women want to support their husbands and be supportive of their ventures. Sometimes we just don’t know exactly the best way to do so or frankly, if we were honest, there are days we just don’t want to know-how set aside. And there is the reality that women and men are hard wired differently.… Continue reading
In our dining room, we have a light fixture that screamed 80s and FIX ME! The imitation candle light fixtures were chipping, the shades had seen better days and in reality I am not a fan of brass/gold. Give me chrome, give me brushed nickel, even oil rubbed bronze but not shiny brass and gold looking anything. Both my husband… Continue reading

I was pleasantly surprised that I could use PICKLES to get out of those “sour” moments.
Last year at a parenting… Continue reading
I saw this really cool idea on a blog I stumbled on a few years ago (sorry I don’t remember which one) about a woman who was scrapbooking every date she and her husband went on that year. Her plan was to present him with the scrapbook at the end of the year on his birthday. It sparked an idea… Continue reading
I don’t know about you but I hated dating. The awkwardness, the getting ready, the having to make sure it was “perfect”, the frogs more often than not, the discomfort of it ending when it didn’t work out (especially when one of you didn’t get the message) either by your hand or his usually created a feeling of dread for… Continue reading
I can imagine that when many of us our in “the getting to know” and “dating” stages of being a couple that “dating” and finding things to do together is… Continue reading
I don’t know about you but I love this time of year and all the wonderful traditions that families have. However, if you are in my situation, a new “family”, whether that be a blended family or a newly wed couple on their own or have a grandparent or parent moving in, family traditions may be an interesting situation.
Throughout… Continue reading
