National Marriage Week starts now and can help your Valentine's Day

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Today, begins a week long celebration of marriage. In February from the 7th-12th, the National Marriage Week website has free resources for how to strengthen your marriage.

 This short and important tip I got from the website:

Tips about the Power of Love and Respect

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people this question: When you are in conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected? 83% of the men said "disrespected." 72% of the women said "unloved."
Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict. For example, when a woman feels unloved during conflict, her natural reaction is to respond disrespectfully.

And when a husband feels disrespected during conflict, his reaction is to respond unlovingly. We call this the Crazy Cycle: "Without love a wife reacts without respect, and without respect a husband reacts without love."

The message the wife is trying to send in her negative reaction (criticism/contempt) is, "I don't feel loved by you right now." The message the husband hears is, "I don't respect you, buster, unless you change immediately." When he reacts either in anger or by stonewalling, the message the wife hears again is, "I don't love you."

Things get crazy because this feeds itself. Her disrespect feeds his lack of love. His unloving reactions feed her disrespect. Round and round it goes.

The good news is that this cycle can be broken. Isn't this exciting? What couples want is love and respect, and the key to long-term marriages is the attitude and action of love and respect. Quoted from

 Now, how does fit into all of this National Marriage Week business?
Well, I think that having a fun, adventurous outfit for guys and gals to surprise their spouse with can keep things interesting as the years of marriage grow.

So meet!

A special thanks to Yandy for inviting me to the Super Bowl events last week. I visited with the owners on the Yandy party bus, which I subsequently dubbed the "Pink Panty Party Bus" . It was a free shuttle that Yandy provided to the Scottsdale Super Bowl Fan Fest party goers to make use of to shuttle between all of the parties in the busy and congested downtown Scottsdale area. also very generously provided a big pink bag full of Yandy samples. Thank you very much.

Although, look at these photos-one has the gifts given, and one has the gift wanted! More like needed  after how busy and hectic all of the events were!

So in my humble opinion, order some Yandy dandies for you and your sweetheart, buy a big jug 'o'wine and then spend your Valentine's day weekend seeing this new movie, Old Fashioned!

It's just what is needed to spark some romance! You can thank me later!

Remember: you are beautiful! Thank you for visiting the blog and check back for promotions and beauty giveaways!
