2018 Ultimate Bundles Genius BLOGGER’S TOOLKIT Review – But Should You Buy It…?

So you’re looking for the 2018 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit review, right? I usually do pretty in-depth workups reviewing many bundle components. But. This is going to be the shortest and skimpiest bundle review I’ve ever done. I’m so sorry! I meant to write up a bigger and better review, I really did…but see, I’ve been […] Read more…

When You’re Just Not Feeling Date Night – It’ll Still End Up Worth It

I’ve said this before, but the best part of doing these date night box reviews is that they FORCE KP and I to spend concentrated, focused time together.  That probably sounds pathetic, right? Here I blog all about marriage all the time and I don’t even have these awesome regular connection times with my own […] Read more…

2018 Ultimate HEALTHY LIVING Bundle Review – Should You? Or Shouldn’t You?

If you’re looking for Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle reviews, you’ve found the place to be. But first, if you haven’t read my other, main, Ultimate Bundles Review post, you need to read that first. 

For real. You need to understand the whole point behind these ultimate bundles first. Go read it here:

Are the Ultimate Bundles Legit? Scam? Amazing Deal? Or Marketing Ploy?
Ok, now that you’re back – you’ll know that I don’t often recommend these bundles. I usually take the approach of “eh, this’ll be a good fit for some, but otherwise, don’t waste your money”. So for me to actually LIKE one of these bundles, means that I actually like it. Please know that honesty is super, duper important to me and I’d MUCH rather have your trust than your money.  Read more…

Step Right Up Folks! To A Carnival Date Night At Home! w/Crated With Love

Before we dive into our carnival date night adventure – quick question:

You’re on Instagram, right? I mean, it’s pretty much my favorite social media option out there currently. Yeah, yeah, there are plenty of overly-staged and unrealistically bright imagery from self-proclaimed ‘influencers’ over there. But, beneath all that? The accounts that are actually real? And authentically inspiring? That give you a peek into the lives of other people out there in the world, and make you feel connected to all humanity through these frozen moments in time? 

That’s what I love about Instagram.  Read more…

How to Spice Up Your TTC/Postpartum/Pregnant Sex Life With The Fantasy Box

KP and I have been The Fantasy Box customers for years, and more recently began occasionally reviewing their boxes. I was extremely excited when I recently found out their recent line of boxes geared specifically for those couples wanting to spice up their TTC, postpartum and pregnant sex life! 

I’ve mentioned this a few times elsewhere, but it took KP and I two years of TTC (trying-to-conceive) before we conceived our first child.

Let’s talk about TTC for a moment. Read more…

2018 Marriage Bundle Review from The Dating Divas – is it really worth it? IDK

I gotta be honest. I hesitated in even blogging about this marriage bundle review of the 2018 Marriage Bundle review hosted by The Dating Divas It’s not really my style and I don’t like that I couldn’t have access to and review the contents beforehand. I don’t like promoting things that I haven’t personally tried out […] Read more…

A List Of My Favorite Marriage Instagramers To Follow On Instagram

I’ve been working on my “instagram following” lately and finding other marriage instagramers. Which yes, basically means that I spend way too much time on insta following people and hashtags and trying to bump up my engagement levels there. I know you’re like, whatevs Ronni. I’m like whatevs too. But apparently it’s what we gotta […] Read more…

Crated With Love & WeCraft Subscription Box Staycation Date Night & Kids Box

This month though – I had a surprise for them. Not only did I get a date night box for their dad and I to do, but I also got a box for the KIDS and I to do together! 

Crated With Love (one of my most favorite date night subscription box options) recently teamed up with a company called WeCraft to offer what they’re calling their “Staycation” package. For $50 you get BOTH subscription boxes – a Subscription Box Staycation ….aaand….wait for it…you ALSO get $20 in gift vouchers toward the two companies to use for future boxes! I do a cost breakdown at the bottom of this post so you can see how awesome of a deal this is. In the meantime, check out all the fun we had on our ‘subscription box staycation’: Read more…

Love Is More Than Love. 6 Different Kinds of Love & How They Affect Marriage

It’s a shame that we lump all the different kinds of love into the same word, obfuscating the differences between, and the beauties of, each kind of love that one is likely to feel in their lifetimes. 

It’s also a shame that when most people think of “love” in the context of modern-day marriage, they assume that the love they have for each other will always be the same love. Almost everyone who enters into marriage does so under the guise of “being in love”, but I have a shocker for you:

The kind of love that you get married for is not the same kind of love that you’ll end up staying married for.  Read more…

I Asked 32 Bloggers: “Why Get Married? Why STAY Married?” – Here’s What They Said

This has been one of the coolest little projects I’ve ever taken on. For awhile now, I’d considered writing a blog post about Why Get Married? Why Stay Married? (if you don’t understand why these questions are different – you’re probably either not married, or haven’t been for long.) similar in vein to my Why Have Kids? post. But knowing that I have the propensity to dive into topics a bit too deeply than most people care about, lol, I had another idea: What if I compiled a list of why other couples chose to get married and why they continue to stay married?

And that’s what I did! 

I first reached out to some of the marriage bloggers I knew and liked. Surprisingly, several of them responded. So I started reaching out farther to more bloggers in different niches. I asked around in some of my blogging facebook groups – would anyone like to contribute? Bloggers I followed on Instagram but had never spoken to – I left them a message on their website.  Read more…

A New Kind of Date Night At Home – Crated With Love’s New “Story Mode” Subscription Box

Fun fact: I consider myself THE primo connoisseur of date night at home subscription boxes. 🙂 I was  the first person posting about them online in 2015 and I’ve come to get to know most/many of the larger companies that provide these boxes. It’s a silly thing to toot my own horn about, but still, it’s one thing I like being known for. 

Before I get into this box review below, let me tell you a bit about the company Crated With Love. A loooong time ago, they were called Date In a Crate and they were one of the very, very first date night subscription boxes to come out on the scene. I never had a chance to review any of their very early boxes, but some of the early reviews out there was um, not the best (I’m so sorry CWL; I don’t mean to embarrass you! Follow me on this one, I’ve got lots good stuff to say! 🙂 ).  Read more…

Best Marriage Bloggers – My Favorite Bloggers Who Blog About Marriage

Since I started blogging in the marriage niche, I’ve been fortunate to stumble upon a lot of other marriage blogs. Some marriage blogs I enjoy and consider to be some of the best marriage blogs, others blogs are not really my thing or what I’m looking for. Unfortunately, many marriage blogs I’ve found are:
• Written solely with a Christian audience in mind and only relatable to a Christian audience.
• Blogs that ONLY talk about the happy moments of marriage and feel unrealistic.
• Simple, pat, and cliched answers that don’t address the depths of where marriage struggles often end up.
• Focused on more general topics such as dating, relationships, sex, or weddings, rather than marriage itself. 

There is nothing wrong with any of these things above! And in fact are great fits for many couples depending on what they’re seeking. However, I’ve instead been on the lookout for these kinds of marriage blogs:  Read more…

May 2018 Date Night In Box Review – Adventure Together

If you read my Date Night In review post from last month, one of the things I regretted is not looking at the suggested recipes beforehand or incorporating a meal for KP and I into the date. 

So this month, I made sure to.

We didn’t have all the ingredients for any of the suggested recipes on hand, but I decided to stick to the theme anyway and go for foil dinners. Because foil dinners remind me of camping as a kid. And they’re delicious.  Read more…

What Is Tully About? More Than You Might Realize. The Deeper Layers No One Else Is Talking About

So you now the movie Tully that’s out right now? If you’re a mom, and/or part of mom groups, you’ve probably seen the movie discussed. The trailers show a slightly humorous depiction of the hard times of early motherhood. Then a night nanny is hired. Overall it looks like a kind of sweet, emotional, realistic tribute to motherhood. Right? 

But maybe a blogger you follow criticized the twist of the movie, stating that Read more…
