3 Tips on Meeting His Family For the First Time

I remember the first Thanksgiving I spent with The Boy’s family like it was yesterday. I was SUPER nervous to be meeting such a large portion of his family and agonized over what to wear for days. My mom and grandma both felt some kind of way because this would be the first time I was going to be spending Thanksgiving any place else. Meeting your boyfriend’s parents is one thing, but meeting the family is a whole different ball game. Will they like me? What if they don’t? What if I don’t like them? The questions that flow through your head are endless. Meeting the family is kind of like ripping off a band aid, the anticipation of the pain is really what causes you distress, not the actual removal of the band aid. However, we’ve all been there before, whether you’re a guy or girl you can relate to the anxiety associated with meeting the family of your beloved. Lucky for all of my Royals, you guys don’t have to worry (much) any more because I’m giving you my 3 tips to be sure you your honey’s family loves you. (more…)

3 Tips to Having a Constructive Disagreement + Thursday 3 Link Up

Last week I wrote about 3 things couples in long term relationships argue over and was prepared to write a post this week about how to constructively and effectively argue with your partner. Well while this is very important, we are two days post-election and one thing is for certain, many people are scared, confused, and questioning their fellow Americans. While many struggle to make sense of the election results or what this means for our country, there are just as many people pleased with the election results. This difference of opinion has lead to an overwhelming amount of disagreement on my Facebook timeline. So today I’m going to share 3 tips on how to have a constructive disagreement….with your partner, your friend, whoever. (more…)

3 Things Couples in Long Term Relationships Argue Over

When a relationship is still shiny and new, we’re in what’s known as the honeymoon stage. You’re spending a lot of time with bae, actively going out of your way to avoid conflict, and can’t imagine that your lover could ever do any wrong. Well eventually that new relationship smell wears off and you seem a lot more aware of little things or habits that irk your soul. Don’t worry, you’re in good company, your relationship (probably) isn’t doomed, and you’ll both live to argue another day. I recently gathered a group of my girlfriends, who have been in relationships for 1-5 years, to investigate the 3 things couples argue over the most. The results were pretty funny, but what became most blatantly clear is that we’re basically all fighting the same battles and I realized all of my Royals probably are too. (more…)

10 Inexpensive Fall Date Ideas

I can hardly believe that summer will officially be over in just a couple of weeks. This summer has passed in a blur. Between trying to finish up grad school, attending weddings, and working multiple jobs, The Boy and I haven’t had as much time for dates. Thankfully, we live together, so seeing each other isn’t an issue, but frankly we haven’t really had the energy to think outside of the box as far as date nights are concerned. As of today, I’m going to commit to making more of an effort during the fall season. Since I’ve published 10 inexpensive date ideas for the winter, spring, and summer. it seemed only logical to compile a list of 10 inexpensive fall date ideas. I figure this list will serve as a good brain storm session for me AND aid my royals in finding inexpensive (but good) dates to wow their partner. (more…)

I have a friend that is struggling to get over her last relationship and I would do just about anything to take her pain away.
