9 Things that are Normal in relationships

9 Things that are Normal in Relationships

That People think are Abnormal

9 Things that are Normal in relationships

Here are 9 Things that are Normal in Relationships that People think are Abnormal, but are completely normal in healthy relationships. 

“When I first met my husband, I tried to be the perfect person for him. In doing that I stopped being myself and focused solely on just pleasing him. I didn’t realize that the conflict that I ran from, was normal in relationships. I didn’t realized that I was emulating the traditional relationship that I saw in my childhood. Once I let go of trying to obtain perfection we organically grew closer.”

  1. Feeling annoyed with your partner

You are two different people with different likes and interest; of course you will get annoyed. Annoyance is an emotion that offers room for growth. If you get annoyed with something your partner does, it opens the door for a discussion and within that discussion, you and your partner can get closer and learn more about each other. Indifference is the emotion that should be worrisome.

2. Not feeling lovey dovey all the time

Unfortunately, real life happens and the honeymoon phase usually fades with time, but always working on the passion and creating a strong bond builds upon your Chemistry. Chemistry and compatibility are more important than Passion.

3. Needing personal space

As the years go by, we as individuals grow. Knowing who you are is important for a healthy relationship. That allows you to know your standards, what you will accept, your morals, etc. Personal time allows you to focus on you without having to appease someone else.

4. Feeling Bored

It is easy to fall into a rut and be bored by the everyday routine. Recognizing this is half the battle; the other half is implementing things get out of that rut. Both parties have to be willing to shake it up and try new things.

*Try cost efficient things like having a Netflix night or purchasing a MoviePass.

5. Arguments

There’s nothing wrong with arguing, if you do it respectfully. When you have two different individuals from two different backgrounds, of course there will be differences. Arguing resolves conflict and as long as you respectfully argue and know how to resolve an argument by coming to a compromise.

6. Over-Sharing your Bathroom Experience

Pooping, peeing, doing other gross grooming is common with couples. If it begins to get in the way of sexy time, make sure you close the bathroom door or try to do those things when you have privacy.

7. Things not being 50/50

A 50/50 relationship means that each individual is participating and giving the same amount of their selves for fairness. This is unrealistic. There will be times where each individual will have to pitch in certain areas more than the other due to circumstance or wellbeing. As long as you are not taking advantage of your significant other and you both have an understanding.

8. Being Wrong

Perfection is something that is unattainable; so, of course you will be wrong at some point. That is okay. You are human and allowed room for error and growth.

9. Not Being perfect

This goes hand in hand with being wrong. You don’t have to be the perfect spouse and that is okay. Not being perfect allows you to express yourself and make mistakes that you can grow from.

Father's Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner…and so is the age old question of “What on Earth do I get him???”  Never fear!! I’ve scoured the Internet and conducted a highly unscientific survey by asking a few dad friends of mine what they’d like to receive.  These  gift ideas are what have landed on my 2018 Top 10 Gifts For Dad!

  1.  Cocktails For Two

There’s nothing like enjoying a quiet evening with a drink in hand…unless Dit’s a cocktail you mastered on your own AND get to share (unless you don’t want to.  Hey, it’s your gift. I’m not gonna judge you). What I like about Saloon Box  is that you get one box a month that has everything you need to make amazing craft cocktails at home, including the ingredients and instructions!  The best part, like I mentioned above, it that everything is proportioned for TWO people! It’s like having some of the world’s best bartenders in your living room…but not really.  It’s a monthly cocktail subscription box and clocks in at $37.50.

https://saloonbox.com/

  1.  Cold Brew Coffee Master

Getting Dad a Keurig is so  * yawn * 3 years ago.  Why not let him morph his inner mad scientist with his latent inner hipster and get him something that will indulge BOTH sides?  The Yama Cold Brew Tower ($250) is not only absolutely GORGEOUS, (hello, curved wood and hand blown, dishwasher and microwave safe glass parts) but it literally looks like the kind of caffeinated science experiment I can get behind.  Ice + Water + Fresh Coffee = cold brewed magic he can tweak to his exact specifications. It is also super cool looking!

  1.  Keep It Spicy

Got a dad who’s got a zillion different bottles of hot sauce?  Why not add 6 more BUT these are ones he made HIMSELF? Give him the gift of spice with this fun DIY Hot Sauce Kit!  $34.95 gets you a variety of spice packs, 6 bottles + labels to pour his creations into. Get it here from Uncommongoods.com

Beyond The Shave 4 Weeks

  1.  The Gift Of A Better Shave

What man likes razor burns, razor rashes and ingrown hairs from shaving. Why not gift him the gift of a better shave?  Rodan+Fields’s Beyond The Shave features 3 proven products specifically curated by top dermatologists for men skin care needs. This 3 step regimen helps calm overall razor irritation and gives him a smoother, closer shave while revealing better skin.  Shave with the Unblemish Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash to soften facial hairs for less razor bumps and a smoother shave. Added bonus? It does double duty as a facial cleanser! Follow this up with the Soothe Sensitive Skin Treatment instead of aftershave. Packed full of proprietary RFp3 peptide technology, this powerhouse product comforts and moisturizes freshly shaved skin while also visibly reducing redness.  

Lastly, protect and smooth his skin with Redefine Triple Defense Treatment with SPF 30. Get it here.

  1.  Live And Learn

Master Class

My husband loves learning new and useful things.  That’s just who he is and I love that about him. Why not spoil the man in your life with the gift of learning?  I love MasterClass for this reason because YOU can choose to either gift him with one class for $90 or spend $180 for an All Access Pass that gives him access for a whole year!  I mean, we’re talking WORLD CLASS professionals! Learn photography from Annie Leibovitz. Learn how to cook with GORDON RAMSEY. Stephen Curry will help him hone his bball skills.  What’s not to like?

  1.  Massage

Massage for Father's DayYes, you guys.  Men love massages also!  Why not treat him to a great massage? I won’t tell if you treat yourself to one at the same time!  I enjoy Hand And Stone Massage. Look and see if there’s one near you!

  1.  A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Family Photo

Give the gift of memories by booking a photo session with a great photographer.  This is the one thing my husband asks for every year. Fill your home with memories year after year!  Picture People is a great budget friendly place that has an indoor studio and various packages that can fit just about every budget.  Added bonus is having your photos printed out and framed right then and there! Or you can also splurge and hire a photographer who specializes in family portraits.

  1.  Tile Sport $25

Never again will again will you have to hear “WHERE ARE MY KEYS????” when you attach the Tile Sport to his keys!  All he has to do is open up the Tile app and BAM! The Tile Sport will locate it for him. The Tile Sport is waterproof up to 1.5 meters just in case it gets splashed on or dropped into a spill.  

Tile Sport

  1.  MeUndies

I know underwear isn’t exactly the kind of gift most people think about giving on Father’s Day, but this brand is highly rated!  For starters, the fabric they use is super soft and is really comfortable. Added bonus is that they can keep costs low due to being an online service ONLY. You have the option of spending $20 for a one time order or $16 as a subscriber.

  1.  Charitable Gifts

For the dad who TRULY has everything and doesn’t need or want anything, why not make a charitable gift in his name to a cause near and dear to his heart?

Working out

How to get in Shape on a Budget

Working out

Getting in shape doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact I spend less money when I stick to a healthy diet because I am not eating out constantly and spending money on booze. Here are tips on getting in shape on a budget. 

1. Start with a budget.

Know how much you can spend each week on food and fitness.  Gyms come with group classes, exercise machines and many times a free private training session. GYM Prices also vary. Crunch sells memberships as low as $10 a month. If you really want to build a skill like Yoga, it is sometimes better to go to a Yoga studio where the instructor will focus more on you. You can also find local community classes that are affordable. Some churches also offer free classes. 

2. Figure out if you can afford a gym membership or not and what type of exercise program that you want to partake in. 

If you are a self starter then working out home should be easy. If you need motivation and influence a gym or class might be the best for you. Working out 3-4 times a week is ideal. If you can’t get away from the kids, walking or park activities may be the best. 

Yoga Classes

3. If you can’t go to a gym (or do not have a desire to) you should purchase tools to help you get into shape.

Resistant bands are so easy and cheap. Yoga balls, medicine balls, and free weights are great investments. I can do a whole workout with resistant bands and a 10 lb dumbbell.

4. YouTube and fitness apps are your best friend in finding workout and health tips.

Check out different styles of workouts or do a workout for free with Youtube or Apps. Here’s a list of Apps you may like. 

5. Contrary to popular belief, eating healthy is actually not expensive.

Cut back your meat intake if you are eating it more than one time a day. Chicken and Ground Turkey are healthy for you and are cheaper meats. Beans are awesome for you and are pennies on the dollar. Oatmeal is a great breakfast choice and is extremely inexpensive. You can also purchase-frozen fruits and vegetables to save money. It starts to get a bit pricy when you purchase Organic, but not everything has to be purchased organic. If I can’t afford organic strawberries, I don’t buy them. Friends and family members that are not healthy/clean eater actually spend about 3 times more on food than I do.

6. Walmart has great inexpensive workout clothes.

Their brand Danskin, has been around for forever. In the 90s I was purchasing it for ballet classes. You can also check the racks at your local Ross or TJ Maxx. They sell Nike, Adidas, etc. for a great price.

Problems with Big Boobs

13 Problems that Women with Big Boobs will Understand

Problems with Big Boobs

Because big boobs can be a problem. 

1. Utility bras only!

Cute bras are not dependable with big boobs and are only used for sexy time lingerie since they only cause problems with every day outfits.  

2. Forget button down shirts!

The problems is that they never fit the arms and chest. Buttons tend to pop open even if you wear an undershirt with the top buttons un-button. If you actually find a button down that fits, you must treat it with the dignity and respect that it deserves. 

3. You have to try on at least 20 bathing suits to find One contender.

Forget swimsuits that are the same size at the top and bottom and one-pieces, they never work.

4. You always have back pain.

At a certain point in life you just began to ignore this as one of the problems with big boobs. Back problems are now apart of the everyday. 

5.  You have to hold your chest to run.

No matter how many sports bras you wear.

6. Guys and girls are constantly looking at your chest.

7. When you wear strapless you are risking a nip slip.

8. When you wear anything that doesn’t cover your breast fully, you are risking a nip slip.

9. When you don’t wear a sports bra or a bra that make you look like you have a uni-boob you are risking a nip slip.

10. You have become okay with the possibility of having a nip slip because unfortunately it has happened.

This may be a huge problem with big boobs, but you have learn to get over it. 

11. You have to wear nipple covers with regular bras in case of a nip slip.

Nip slips happen regardless if your boobs are in a tee-shirt or v-neck. 

12. You have to become comfortable with the possibility of always finding crumbs in between your boobs.

Otherwise it would be gross.

13. You use deodorant under and between your breasts.

It gets so sweaty!
