p.s. - My brother-in-law got married this weekend, yahooo!
Two signs you know you’re married: you’ve got a ring on your finger and cleaning supplies are suddenly thrilling. MSN just rounded up the top home products that newlyweds “can’t live without.” Do you feel the urge to bring out your inner Mr. Clean just looking at them? I for one am currently transitioning to all eco-friendly/ organic products, like ones from Seventh Generation or Mrs. Meyer’s (their lemon soap is out of this world). Kind of exciting. Take the poll below to share your thoughts and bring out your inner neat geek.
Addendum: If this post seems like too much of a snooze, you can always just imagine using the products in the nude – only if encouraged by your partner, of course.
Lots of <3.
Let’s face it, there are many more things newlyweds would rather discuss than toilet paper and rusty pipes. Examples: creative ways to put that new lingerie to use, photos for the wedding album, and what your kids will look like. But alas, a life without TP is unimaginable and someone’s gotta be on the job constantly refilling. As for the pipes, you really don’t want to start off your new life together with anything rusty.
Luckily, there are sites and apps to make chores around the house easy. Try Alice.com to get anything from toothpaste to detergent delivered to your doorstep at couponed, competitive prices.

Happy Surfing! You can surf longer now…you’ll be saving time later.

U.S. News just published a story on why marriage could make you happier, and who doesn’t want a little more sunshine in their lives? Here are some other interesting findings touched upon:
-The relationship you had with your parents can predict if your marriage will be successful. Yikes?!
-Marriage makes you healthier. Santé!
-Married women are waiting longer to have children. Not so fast baby carriage!
The greatest decline in happiness in a marriage transpires in the first few years, the article points out. Acceptance, mutual support, and realistic expectations will be key in getting you through good times and bad.
Lots of <3,
