You maybe thinking, why would I want to include my family on a date with my spouse?  I get it, I get it.  But the truth is, anytime you are spending quality time together is great for your relationship.  And, if you are married or soon to be, you are a part of each other’s families.  So, why not spend some quality time together with your families?!  Here are some tips for pulling off a great Family BBQ.

You may have noticed that I am a bit obsessed with Harry Potter!  If you have not, let me bring you up to speed: my wedding and honeymoon was Harry Potter themed, I got two hours of sleep to go to the midnight showing of Deathly Hallows Part II, I have 4 Harry Potter related tattoos, and my house has a cupboard under the stairs!  My husband and I watch the Harry Potter movies almost non-stop in the month of November.  But it has been a while since we sat down and watched them all in order (we tend to fall asleep on the couch if we watch anything in the evenings).  So, this weekend we are planning a Harry Potter movie marathon!

As the valley of the sun heats up, we continue to look for ways to escape the heat. A popular way to do this is with a day trip up to Flagstaff! If you are unfamiliar with Flagstaff, it is a cute little city in Northern Arizona. It is the home to NAU and growing fast! I have watched as trendy businesses have started opening up shop here, like Chipotle, Whole Foods, and Pita Jungle. But there are still plenty of little mom and pop places around to give it that small town feel. So here are my tips for making the most out of a day trip to the beautiful pines of Flagstaff.

This week’s #DateYourSpouse is not one I would suggest doing every date night.  (Or else you may end up being that crazy couple with ALL of the cats and/or dogs.)  But, I think it is a great date night, or nights depending on how you go about adopting you pet! Both my husband and my […]

Where’s my Hell’s Kitchen fans at?!  I love pretty much anything that involves Gordon Ramsey yelling at people.  That sounds pretty bad when I say it out loud… But I cannot help it!  He is amazing!  Today’s #DateYourSpouse is dedicated to those who share the same love as I do for Gordon Ramsey and Hell’s Kitchen.

Food trucks are a newer trend that my husband and I have been very late to take notice of.  Sometimes we joke that we are old people because we don’t know/understand new trends, and food trucks were no exception.  One day we got a postcard from the city about a food truck even they were […]

My husband and I have been together for over 13 years now.  We have both had multiple jobs with different schedules throughout our relationship, but there has always been on constant: Sundays off.  On occasion we will have to work a Sunday or one of us will be out of town, but we have spent […]
