I was offered the opportunity to review a new book - Stop Calling Him Honey and Start Having Sex. Intriguing title and I'm married and have a license to do just that so I thought it would be an interesting read.

And so it was . . .





Now let me start by saying this is NOT a Christian book. It is NOT written from a Christian perspective. And if you are easily offended by crass language or specific sexual commentary then this is not a book for you to read.

But, my husband and I have really enjoyed it. It makes some great points, and has a refreshing view of long term relationships.

Basically, the two ladies that wrote this book are offering up the idea that by using the rationalization that we are "one" as a couple we have allowed mediocrity, over-familarity, rudeness and crassness to reduce the sexual attraction between men and women who have been together more than a couple of years.

I didn't ask my husband to read this book, but since it was laying around and he was clearly attracted to the big "Sex!" on the cover he picked it up and read several different parts. Then he came to me and started telling me how he thought they had a good point - about shutting the door when you go to the bathroom and being discreet about body functions and treating each other with respect. That's downright impressive right there . . . and then he started implementing these things without any real encouragement or even agreement from me.

This is a good read. There is some terminology that could be offensive and the book refers to relationships both married and simply longterm dating relationships - all from a sexual perspective. So with that forewarning, it might be worth picking up a copy to see if you think any of the ideas would help you make life a bit more, umm spicy there at home.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
