I’ve wanted to ask this questions for a long time. Does love rev up your fashion sense? I seriously want to know. I’m not talking about the 25% of the population who are flawless with Mac lashes and lip gloss engaged even if they’re just going to the slot to return a movie rental or grab a loaf of bread from the corner deli. I’m asking the 75% of us who love our jeans and tee days and even if we’re going shopping we don’t normally always look our ABSOLUTE cotillion best.


[kuhtil-yuhn, koh-] a formal ball given esp. for debutantes.

When you’re in love or are dating someone you are really truly crushing on does it rev up your wardrobe and make you want to get dolled up even on the days that you know you won’t see him? If so, what changes about your wardrobe, the color, the variety or nothing? As for me I can say yes, yes and oh definitely yes love changes things for me. The heels in my wardrobe do get higher, sexier and eventually I find a dress to match. My reward? How much my husband appreciates me in them.



I had a wonderful time this weekend with friends. We attended a showing of Fireproof at a friend’s house that was also a celebration for another friend’s birthday. Now I’ve always been the kind of person who had to feel others out before I can fully engage them, however, when God is in the mix He’s got everything under control and I had such an adorable time. You’ve read my thoughts on Fireproof in another post. However, what I found is that just like the Word, whenever you read it you uncover something new, something you’ve never seen before–same with the movie. Watching it allowed me to see that you have to be pro-active about love. You have to love on purpose. You have to make a conscious effort to love. We can’t just let the theory of love exist between 2 people. I believe that people need to take time out and spend quality time with their spouse and do things that knit them closer together because there are plenty of people who just exist in the same apartment/house but they stop sharing and feeling that closeness because they don’t make time for it. Loving my husband should be more important than my job, what’s on tv or what shoes are on sale. Oftentimes we give other things more “importance” than we give our spouse and then we wonder where the love went. The Love Dare is a powerful tool that was used in the movie Fireproof.


So, next on my list of things to keep my marriage solid, thriving and bearing fruit? Yes, you guessed it The Love Dare. Click to check it out and read Day 1 of the dare online and/or order your copy.


You can always tell when two people belong together and when they do there is nothing that anybody else can do about it. You can try to steal a weekend with him before they tie the knot. You can call him up at 4am begging him to come over as if one last roll in the hay with you is going to be so electric that it will make him forget that he’s madly in love with the woman that he’s promised with a ring to marry. When he belongs to her in the spirit, he’s hers already. There’s nothing you can do about it, and vice versa no man can nose in on another man’s territory. It’s amazing that some women and men can’t just sit back and be happy for someone else. They always want to steal the shine and then wonder why happiness never finds them.


Have you ever heard the saying that there’s nothing new under the sun? Well there isn’t. The sad fact that a woman has a man and the former woman finds it necessary to stalk and live vicariously through the new woman and pretend she’s still with the man because she can browse the blog and read where they eat, what movies they watch or view their house plans is a joke. The saddest thing is a woman who doesn’t know when it’s over. I mean completely and utterly over. When you know the rules going into the arrangement don’t act brand new after the fact. Trying to get under another woman’s skin and show her how familiar you are with her man because you’ve been with him is so juvenile that it should come with fruit rolls ups and a juice box. I mean if he’s over you why is it so hard to get over him? And for all the blog thugs out there, the internet I find is a place where “some” people type things that they’d never say to someone’s face. I’ve seen it happen. I’ve personally had people say things about me and become MUTE to my face. Bottom line is that people say things to hurt other people’s feelings because THEY are hurt. What they don’t realize however is that you’ll keep hurting and never heal if you keep dragging out the fact that it’s over and he’s over you. The sun has set on that fairytale. Move on so you can be happy. They already have.
