Family vacations sometimes hold a really special place in people’s memories. For others, though, it can be the root of all evil stress.
In this episode, we dive into our favorite (and least favorite) memories of our family vacations, our expectations for this upcoming vacation, why family vacations make you more tired, and how to survive a family vacation in general.
Today’s podcast is going to talk about how we like to be loved. It’s how your Love Plant or Love Tank is filled and fed, if you will. One of the best ways to see what truly fills you up is to take the Love Language Quiz. This shows you the 5 major ways that people show and want to receive love, and it can be such a relationship saver to know these foundational details about yourself and your spouse.
And if you’re more a personality test believer, we show you all the different ways the Meyer Briggs personality types act in a relationship.
Do you love Valentine’s Day? Or are you a grinch like Melissa and Marie? Today’s episode talks about The Worst present Marie got for Valentine’s Day, the only present Melissa got, and how we both agree that Valentine’s Day is for the birds.
We both agree that there a many reasons why we don’t celebrate it. Not only is it on our mom’s birthday, but we also discuss how it’s a Mean Girl holiday. [Disclaimer: we do realize that there are nice girls out that that just love celebrating love. #doyoubooboo]
Share your thoughts and Valentine’s Day plans with us on Instagram (@sisterwivespodcast) You’ll also be able to find a picture of Marie’s hilariously horrible Valentine’s Day present.
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.
