So we’re back and at it and recording our podcast.
A lot of people (our mom) kept begging us to start again, and who are we to deny the people what they want?Continue reading “Season 2 Episode 1: Let Me”
Strong marriages rest on solid foundations.
That foundation? Communication.Continue reading “Communication Mistakes That Are Ruining Your Marriage”
With great power comes great responsibility.
And as women, we have this incredible power to create human life. And the responsibility? Raising those lil babies into kind humans.
But when it’s your first rodeo, it can be a little intimidating. We all go into this with preconceived ideas and expectations of what motherhood (and parenting in general) will be like.Continue reading “Advice For New Moms”
Keeping score in a relationship is, unfortunately, all too common. It becomes even more obvious when it’s the third time this week you’ve done dishes or you literally can’t remember the last time your partner initiated sex.Continue reading “Are You A Relationship Score Keeper?”
Shawn’s job requires him to travel a lot. Usually it’s within the States, but this past year he has almost exclusively been traveling to China.
He usually has to be there for 3-5 weeks at a time, which can put a damper on our dynamic.
And for those of you that doesn’t listen to the podcast (yet), our dynamic is that of two co-dependent dogs. (please refer to season 2 episode 2: China, please don’t take my man).
As a follow up to Criticism v Advice, we talk about saying sorry to your spouse. We all know that it seems like the hardest thing to do, but we discuss why that is… and why we hate doing it. We discuss some of our biggest fights, who
is the weaker spouse usually says sorry first, and we give some advice on how to apologize correctly.
We’ll be the first to admit that it’s not easy or fun, but it’s a necessary skill in marriage (and all relationships).
Hobbies can be a great way to connect with your spouse. They can also be a great way to annoy your spouse. Today Melissa and Marie talk about the hobbies their men have, their own hobbies (or lack thereof), and how pretending to be into a hobby could possibly kill you.
And for those of you that are a lot like Marie and Melissa, we’re here to tell you you’re not alone. … Obviously. We get it. Hobbies sound intimidating, honestly. And we’re very low-pressure kind of people, you feel me. I feel like “hobbies” are strictly reserved for people who obsess over their “thing.” Like, stamp collectors and knitting-clubs. But I know that they don’t have to be that serious or time-intensive. I’ve come to realize that hobbies are just things that you genuinely enjoy doing in your spare time or have a true interest in it. We’ve created a list of reasons on why you need hobbies aka just something you enjoy doing and that you carve out time for. It tends to be therapeutic and can actually create some interesting friendships.
And for those of you that are wanting to find that list of weird hobbies that I talk about in the podcast, check it out here. Maybe you and your tots will become avid toy-voyagers.
