7 Ways to CHANGE your Husband!

I think every woman thinks at some point that with enough pressure and chatter, she can change her husband. I have thought this countless times to no avail. No amount of pressure and coercing on my part has done any good in moving Hubby toward an idea, attitude, or action. I hate to say it but it's taken me these 2 and half years of marriage to realize that I alone cannot change Hubby. Men don't like to be bossed. They must be gently encouraged or led. Have you ever heard that song from the movie "Hello Dolly!"? So true!...more

I'm a Closet Pooper

I have a huge confession to make. I can’t poop when anyone is around. For some reason, I completely freeze up and my shooter shuts down. I call it the emergency shit switch.

Adventures in Marriage and Cooking

My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. However, he has two things that he will not eat. He can't stand onions and tomatoes, so I've had to come up with variations to work around not including these two ingredients that are in most recipes. One day, after I started cooking for him more, I asked what food he had been craving. My husband is such an amazing man and made sure I always got the foods I was craving when I was pregnant with our daughter, Ava. I wanted to do the same for him. He said that it had been years since he had beef stew....more

Putting This Week To Bed

I cannot be the only one...who is relieved that this "holiday" week is over (and isn't afraid to say it).  Between my part time job, shuffling Sonny Boy around, and the hubby off work for two extra days this week, I am ready for it all to go back to normal. Here are some of the highlights (I use the word highlights loosely) from this past week of vacation: ...more
