What Puzzles Can Teach You About Your Relationship - Love Bombs Show 10

March 27th, 2014


I know, I know it totally sounds like an old people thing to do, but puzzles are fun. Dave and I have started doing them in the evenings and we were surprised at how we took on particular roles with puzzling and how that translated into other aspects of how we work together as a couple. 

Try a puzzle and see what it reveals about you and your partner! Oh and do it while you listen to our show!


The Teachable Moments of the Show Marriage Boot Camp; Bridezillas! - Love Bombs Show 9

March 20th, 2014

I have a really guilty pleasure.  It's a show called Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas. They now have the whole season on Netflix. I can have all the drama without the messiness of actually having it directly in my life and oh yeah it was professional research! Win-win!


The premise of the show is they take the self-proclaimed Bridezillas who are now married and help them with their (surprise, surprise) floundering marriages.  I expected a major train wreck but the coaches on the show seemed to really have some great tools to get at some significant relationship hurdles. I won't give away the ending though, you will have to watch for yourself.

Dave and I talk about the show, what we got out of it and how even these sensationalized reality shows can give you a few nuggets of wisdom.


What Do You Do If Your Partner is Wearing Cranky Pants? - Love Bombs Show 8

March 13th, 2014

I will be the first to admit I wasn't at my best today.  And as always Dave handled it like a trooper.  I wanted take this opportunity thank him publicly for being awesome about it and also ask about what his techniques and strategies are for dealing with difficult people. Just to warn you I do use the term "pain in the ass" in case you have sensitive ears.

To add to the excitement we decided to record this show on the go.  We were on the way to see our good friend Graham do an improv show and decided to record on the fly.  So if you hear sirens we swear the police are not after us.

Baggage Isn’t a Bad Word - Love Bombs Show 7

March 6th, 2014

Somehow along the way baggage is viewed as something only the people on Jerry Springer have.  We'll this week Dave and I explain that baggage can be that hot mess, but it can also be so much more. And guess what?  We all have it!  The trick is figuring out what you have packed and then keeping and tossing the right stuff.

I created a whole class around this very topic if you want to really clear the way for an awesome relationship.  You can check it out at Udemy: Sorting Your Love Baggage
