It’s hard to stick to health resolutions. It can be especially difficult to resist a soft, warm cookie if your spouse just baked them up and is eating one right in front of you.
Moments like these are why many of us choose to get healthy with the social support of a significant other. The gentle peer pressure encourages us to stay on track, and even better, you and your partner are working towards something together, which unites you with a common experience and can be a powerful bonding opportunity.
On the other hand, the potentially stressful process could also cause some friction between the two of you, especially if one is less committed to the pursuit than the other. Here are some tips to help you both be successful in your health goals!

It’s because I’m truly loving the magic it has worked on my skin! And I wanted to do a review to share with you today.

Catchy name right?! It is handmade in small batches in Phoenix, Arizona; and can be purchased at Butter Depot.
I love Houston Rodeo! We have gone every year since moving here. There’s lots of vendors, crazy good food, games, rides, and music. What’s not to love, right?
The only problem I had this year, was deciding what to wear. Because we planned to take both girls with us this year, I knew, I wanted to rock something chic but I also wanted comfort.
So, I put together a look that mixed both…
It is Rodeo time!! If you live in Houston, you are probably saying, “Heck, Yeah!” If you don’t, you are probably saying, “So what?”
Let me tell you that in Houston, Rodeo is a huge deal. This may very well be the most anticipated event of the year. After all, it is biggest party in our city. Concerts, games, carnival rides, fair food, fried food…
Yes, the food! And speaking of food, I am bringing you three rodeo food recipes that you can make at home tonight!
Deep Fried Oreos
As if Oreos were not delicious enough! Believe me, deep fried Oreos are so much more delicious. I didn’t know how easy it was to make these until my brother-in-law made them. I have made them a few times since.
Who doesn’t love corn on the cob?! I love corn, period. But there’s something about corn on the cob. While I see elotes as corn on steroids, they are a fair food favorite. And this Cheetos Crusted Elotes recipe brings the traditional recipe to another level of yumminess.
