top 2 tuesday: Relationships

Well today is the big reveal at Starbucks for the 40th Anniversary.
We are launching the new logo, new drinks, new goodies.
I have to say I am not a huge fan of the new logo...I think it is rather plain.
What do you think?
Either way, go in and check it out. Some time this week I think we are offering a 'Happy Hour' which entails a free pastry/goodie with drink purchase. Don't quote me because I am not sure if it is every store.

Now on to linking up with Taylor for


Top 2 Things I've Learned About Relationships

1. Relationships are a lot of work. Whether it be with your spouse, your folks, your siblings or your friends. Relationships are a two way companionship, both people have to work at it. Life gets in the way, we all know that, but if you want the relationship to work you have to make time. If you truly want the relationship to work, you have to give and take. There are fights. There are disagreements.There is laughter. There is fun & goofiness. There is love. There is crying.
To me relationships are hard, but totally worth it.

2. Never go to bed angry or with a grudge against each other. I have always told myself that Tony and I will never go to bed angry. I will not sleep next to my husband knowing he is mad at me or me at him. It is just not going to happen. No matter how little or large the argument/disagreement is, I will make us talk it out. Yup, you heard me...I will make us stay up all night long until it is resolved or until we come to the conclusion that we will agree to disagree.

Alrighty, I am going to paint my toe nails now, so I my tootsies can look pretty when I wear my flip flops :)

I love your # 2 where you say never go to bed angry or with a grudge against each other!!! I agree with that little saying 100 %. I think all to many people now days do go to bed angry or upset at their significant other.I just like you could never go to bed and lay beside Brent knowing he was mad at me over something. Talking is so simple and very easy to do and it clears up alot of things from both sides. It also make help one or the other see the opposite point of view they might not have seen other wise. Great blog loved it.

I've seen that relationships take work several places but it is so true. It always amazes me how people will spend thousands of dollars on weddings, but not a dime on their marriage. It is important to "maintain" your marriage like you would change the oil in your car - regularly! =) Enjoyed reading your post!

Thank you for your advice! I will take all I can get!

And I think the logo is a bit boring too and I feel like they can't just CHANGE the logo...that seems very odd to me... Ha!
