39 Is Gonna Be Fine

Monday, April 7th, 2014

s.o.s.-7

So, my husband calls me URGENTLY on Friday and tells me that I must call Visa immediately, as it appears my credit card has been frauded. Visa was unable to reach me at home and they needed to verify suspicious transactions. He gives me the number to call ASAP and tells me to ask for Nelly.

I hang up the phone while en route home from carpool and call the number. I ask for Nelly as told, and proceed to ask, “What happened to my credit card?”

Then, a chuckle on the other line, “Is this the birthday girl?!” she laughs.

The Black Bra

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Girls, a little “Hump” in your Hump Day… no pun intended. ;) We’re off the fence today! My mother in law recently forwarded this joke to me, and if you’ve been with your man as long as I have, you might just love this. Please don’t take it too literally.

The Black Bra (as told by a woman)

I recently had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, one is a mistress, and I have been married for 20+ years.

We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by greeting them at the door wearing a black bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes.

We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes.

6 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Spicy on Valentine’s Day and Beyond

Friday, February 14th, 2014

By Guest Blogger Laurie Gerber

Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovebirds! I’ve been with my husband for 20 years and so far neither of us has cheated. We have something really great, but if you read my blog, you’d know it wasn’t always so good. We had our troubles and issues in our marriage, same as all couples. I will tell you that it is what we chose to do about our issues, that has kept our love thriving and our marriage hot. Prepare to change your thinking!

People get frustrated with keeping love alive, partly because they’ve been conditioned by movies and common culture to believe that with the “right” person, all the romance and spark will appear “naturally.” I teach a different story. Love and romance usually come easily when we’re young or when the relationship is young. After that, it takes work. Don’t view that as an injustice or a burden, but rather an opportunity to grow up and take charge of your life.

WATCH: How To Make a Vision Board for 2014

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

It’s a brand new year. And a brand new year, means a brand new start. There is no more perfect time than NOW to make your vision board, and put your plan into action. I spoke about how to make a vision board on this morning’s weekly Global TV segment. And you’ll just have to watch to see what surprise I am sticking on this year’s vision board!

Yes, 2014 is about ACTION. This year, we’re not just talking – we’re walking our talk. And it’s gonna be powerful. This year, we’re DREAMING BIG.

I frequently mention a vision board on Twitter and Facebook, and many of you ask me about mine, and how to make one. I would post own my vision board for you to see, except I’m kinda superstitious, and feel like my vision board is like a birthday wish. You know, you cover your eyes, make a wish, and only if you tell no one, it will come true? Yeah, that sorta thing.

I’m Leaving On A Jet Plane

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

I have been counting down the days. Yes, I will wake up at 3:30am tomorrow morning for a 6:30am flight to New York City to attend MY Superbowl. Truth is, I live for events where rockstar women bring their A-game and discuss what makes them thrive, successful, happy and fulfilled. This is MY Superbowl – The WIE Symposium.

Here is why I decided to go– below is only a taste of this year’s speaker lineup. When I saw Lee Woodruff tweet about it just four weeks ago, it took me 20 minutes to get my conference ticket and book my flight to New York. For real. Check out all the speakers: https://www.wienetwork.org/nyc2013/speakers/
