Less stress more Sex!

Let me start out by saying I'm so SORRY for not having put my Friday blog post up lately. Life has just been a little crazy, stressful and over whelming.  Fingers crossed things start getting back to normal soon. With that all being said todays post I thought would be fitting, because I know I'm not alone and everybody needs a reminder or some new ideas on a way to de-stress.

Top 10 Ways to Deal with Stress
Use these techniques to help manage your daily stress and anxiety. Understanding what works best for you, can improve your ability to cope with the challenges of each day.  
  1. Aromatherapy- Use your favorite scented oils to calm your senses. Inhaling essential oils interacts with your brain, almost instantaneously triggering a positive impact on your mood.
  2. Breathing Exercises-Taking a quick break and a few slow, deep breaths can help slow your heart rate and carry more oxygen to your body. 
  3. Sex-Engaging in sex can boost your body’s immunity, lower blood pressure, alleviate pain, and boost self-confidence.
  4. Touch-A number of studies have found that being touched, massaged or held may have positively dramatic results on lowering stress levels.
  5. Laughter-Laughter really is the best medicine and a great tool that is free, convenient and packed with tons of benefits! Dial that friend who always manages to make you laugh, watch a sitcom, or read the Sunday funnies.
  6. Exercise-Go jogging or attend a yoga class. Getting your heart rate elevated and blood pumping can help the release of endorphins in the brain that work as all-natural mood enhancers.
  7. Sleep-Not getting enough sleep can lead to stress. When you’re tired, you are more likely to be easily agitated and less patient. Make a valiant effort to get the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep each night, so your body can function properly and tackle tomorrow’s mountains.
  8. Adopt a pet-It’s hard to stay in a bad mood when there’s a cute, furry, four-legged friend to pet. Researchers say that being around animals can lower blood pressure and heart rate.
  9. Vent-Friends are so important! More than just free-therapy, friends are there to listen, laugh, and offer advice when needed.
  10. Dance/Music-Plug in your iPod, turn up the volume and dance. The bodily effects of music and dancing can be felt immediately.  So, let go and groove to the beat!

Wordless Wednesday (Really not so wordless)

I normally have so much fun on Wednesdays tracking down pictures, but today I have picture block my mind is just else where. It rained all last night and I love weather, it's an obsession of mine so all I want to do is watch it right now. Then tomorrow we leave to go on a trip to California. This will be the first time my son has ever flown as well as the first time I have ever flown with them both by myself. We are so excited, nervous, anxious, all they above. 
This all leads me to the picture I found today an air plain and weather picture. Enjoy! I did =)

SMILE! It's a Monday morning Joke

Wedding Vows

During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor with an unusual offer:

"Look, I'll give you $100 if you'll change the wedding vows. When you get to the part where I'm supposed to promise to 'love, honor and obey' and 'be faithful to her forever,' I'd appreciate it if you'd just leave that out."

He passed the minister a $100 bill and walked away satisfied.

On the day of the wedding, when it came time for the groom's vows, the pastor looked the young man in the eye and said: "Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life, and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?"

The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice, "Yes," then leaned toward the pastor and hissed: "I thought we had a deal."

The pastor put a $100 bill into the groom's hand and whispered: "She made me a better offer."

SMILE! It's a Monday morning Joke


A rich lonely widow decided that she needed another man in her life so she placed an ad, which read something like this:


For several months, her phone rang off the hook, her doorbell was ringing constantly, she received tons of mail, etc., all to no avail: none seemed to match her qualifications.
Then one day the doorbell rang yet again. She opened the door to find a man with no arms and no legs lying on the welcome mat.
Perplexed, she asked, "Who are you? And what do you want?"
"Hi," he said, " your search is over, for I'm the man of your dreams. I've got no arms so I can't beat you up and no legs so I can't run away."
"Well, then," she said, "what makes you think that you're so great in bed?"
To which he replied,.....
"Well, I rang the doorbell, didn't I?
