5 Topics Couples Don’t Discuss Until It’s Too Late

The Ultimate Dating Basket Giveaway


March madness is among us!  Coming from a University of Florida Gator, this time reminds me of the years I was there when we won 3 championships in 2 years (2 basketball and 1 football).  In commemoration of great times, I felt it was time for a giveaway.

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts yesterday, Heather Dubrow’s World, by one of the housewives of Orange County.  Heather Dubrow had Dr. Drew Pinsky on her show, and he mentioned something that got me thinking.  Technology has gotten in the way of intimacy.

I’m Officially Mrs. Comedian!


I’ve officially been married to the Comedian for a month and two days.  I know I’m a bit late on relaying my experience but what better time before a long weekend to indulge in some wedding highs and lows.
