Give your Marriage a High Five - 5 weekly questions to strengthen your relationship @getSNAZZY

Every week (or day) ask each other these relationship building questions:

1. Little Finger – How did I make you feel loved and appreciated this week?

2. Ring Finger – Say your wedding vows – When will we make time for US {alone} this week?

3. Middle Finger – What is causing you stress? How can I make you feel loved or encouraged?

4. Pointer Finger – What does your week look like? What is the main thing you want to accomplish?

5. Thumbs Up to God – How can I pray for you this week?

Add a 10 second kiss daily. (Not just a peck). Life gets hectic. Nurture your relationship and help it grow. Don’t become roommates!

Grow your Marriage

If you asked me the one thing that has helped our marriage grow it would be this Marriage High FIVE.  We have been married for 8.5 years with two fabulous kiddos. We started asking each other these questions every Sunday night for the past year – we try to get the kids in bed a little early and have time for just us. It has really improved our communication and helped us stay on the same page. Life gets BUSY – especially with kids and we forget to take time to BE with each other. Little issues become big problems and resentment and bitterness if we let things boil up.  It might feel awkward the first week or two, but then it will become natural and deeper and you will feel off if you miss a week!  This year has been one of the BEST for our marriage, here’s to continuing to grow!

 Join us? We challenge you to ask these 5 questions weekly AND end it with a high five and a 10-second kiss – or more ;)

p.s. I don’t know the original source of these questions – there are several versions on the internet. I customized them a bit and added the high five aspect – if you know the original of the questions please comment and let me know so I can give credit!

Teacher Gift Idea – Superhero Kit with Thieves Essential Oil Cleaner!

Are you looking for a teacher gift that they will actually use?

I LOVE Pinterest, but I’ve also seen tons of cutesy craft ideas that a teacher won’t be able to use or have room to store. I asked some teacher friends and they said no more apples or crayon wreaths! ha. Cute, but overload! Our teachers loved this – “wow, so useful.” “Thanks for something I can use every day.”

My kiddos help me put together Superhero Supply Kits -

1. Thieves Cleaner (diluted in mini travel bottle)

2. Kleenex Tissues

3. Mini First Aid Kit with band aids and superhero supplies

4. Chocolate Hearts

5. Bookmark (made out one of the kids paintings – hole punched and tied with tulle ribbon)

6. God Made Teacher’s Poem

7. Pen

8. Thieves Cleaner info

9. Teachers Change Lives. Thank You! Card

Hello from my new FREE iPhone 5 @BestBuy

Have you heard about Best Buy’s iPhone trade in program? I got a FREE iPhone 5.

Yay Best Buy!

Thanks for the even exchange trade in for my iPhone 4 and for price matching my new case with Amazon- almost 50% off. :)

free iPhone 5 trade in from Best Buy

Here is more information and some of the basic rules (you have to be eligible for an upgrade and sign a new contract, your phone has to be working and not cracked, etc. Offer expires soon!) http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/06/19/best-buy-free-iphone-trade-in/2439665/

It was pretty busy, so if you know anyone going tell them to go at on “off time” or be prepared to wait a little bit. Worth it.

It was a great deal for me. I was thinking about upgrading anyway. Good timing.

I bought an OtterBox Defender Series Case for the iPhone 5. I had one with my iPhone 4 and loved it – it stood up to the test of A LOT of drops.  See Best Buy for all the details about price matching, but I was told that they only price match if the product is shipped and sold by amazon.com – just a tip!

There really weren’t any hidden fees. I paid $44.45 that included tax and my new Otterbox case (which was originally $49.99) I’d say I got a GREAT deal.  If you don’t buy a case it will probably be less than $15 (for tax.)

p.s. I don’t have any affiliation with Best Buy. I am just excited about my deal!
