Weekend Recap & Blogging with a Purpose

This weekend I . . .

*Played with my nieces
*Attended my friend's baby shower
*Got stuck sitting on the bride (not fun when you can feel it shake as cars pass by)

*Went to dinner & FroYo with some friends

*Took some senior and family pictures

*Tristan and I had OUR pictures taken {for the first time since our wedding}
*Did a little bit of gift shopping
*Lots of editing! . . . while enjoying some Starbucks


This week, the Blogging With A Purpose topic is "Your Strengths and Weaknesses in Your Marriage."

I think that admitting our weaknesses in any aspect of life is difficult - but even more so when it comes to the relationship with our significant other. Often, it is nearly as difficult to identify our strengths - at least for me it is. So this week's subject matter took a little bit of thinking.

I am the caretaker: I make sure that we have clean clothes, food to eat, a *mostly* clean house to come home to after work.  I get up in the morning to make my husband a lunch to take to work, and stay up late some nights to make sure his work attire gets into the laundry.

I am the scheduler: If we are going to be going anywhere or doing anything, I'm the one with all the details.  When we move, I make sure all the utilities get closed out/started or transferred.  If we go on vacation, I make the arrangements.

I am the banker: I know when all the bills are due and make the the payments.  I keep track of all the logins and passwords.

Encouragement: I am not very good about giving compliments on a regular basis.

Patience: I tend to get irritated easily - and usually allow that to ruin the rest of my day.

Entertainment: I don't always have the best sense of humor.

Communication: I have a hard time explaining how I feel sometimes.

If you missed it last week, I introduced Rychelle of Foltz Family Life as my "little".  The Bigs & Littles Blogging Network is a really great opportunity and I would encourage you to watch for the next round! 

Anyways - Rychelle is a fairly new blogger and I want to encourage you to stop by, tell her hello, and provide her with any encouragement you may have!  Plus . . . she has an adorable little girl that you can gush about!


FINALLY, I am participating in a giveaway over at Simple Moments Stick, this week! You have an opportunity to win ad space, Starbucks and more! Plus, it's a great opportunity to get to know more wonderful bloggers!

  1. That froyo is making my hungry!!! Also, I think that everyone has a hard time communicating exactly how they feel all the time. We are all different and sometimes it is hard to understand each other. Hope you have a great week!

  2. Sounds like a great weekend!!! :-)


Thanks for taking time to visit me! I'd love to hear from you!
