That You Love Him Just As He Is (Because He's Not Going to Change) What irritates you about your guy now will really grate on you after you're married. He's a total slob? A night owl when you're an early bird? Don't kid yourself into thinking he'll change once you're hitched -- that's a blueprint for disappointment. Assume that any negative qualities you're seeing will remain negative, and be realistic about what you're willing to live with. So decide what's a dealbreaker and what's not before your boyfriend becomes your husband.
What His Financial Situation Is Beyond what he pulls down in salary, you should know how much he has in savings, how much debt he's carrying and -- this is important -- how he accrued it. You don't want any surprises after marriage. Ask these questions before you're married so you have an understanding of what caused any problems and how to prevent them from happening again. Sure, the conversation takes some finesse, but you can ease into it by discussing your hopes and dreams together. That opens the door to sharing what your money history has been.
Whether You Both Want Children Some couples want six kids -- others can't even imagine having one. What ultimately matters though, is that you both know in your gut how you feel about the "having kids" question. Sit down with your fiancé and have a true heart-to-heart: Discuss where you see yourself in 5 or 10 years and if kids are part of that vision. If you're not on the same page, one of you will have to compromise in a big way, which may be very stressful (or even a dealbreaker).
How to Eat at a Restaurant Alone When your guy's not around, there's no need to be stuck at home with a Lean Cuisine -- do something fun by yourself. Many people aren't comfortable doing this because they imagine others are judging them for being alone. But the reality is, most folks are probably too wrapped up in their own thoughts to ponder why you're solo. So enjoy your meal and your alone time. It sends the healthy message to your guy that you don't need him to entertain you every night. That kind of independence is sexy!
How to Do Home Improvements No, you don't need to know how to install your own solar water heater, but you should own a toolbox stocked with the basics (hammer, screwdriver, wrench, pliers, power drill, assorted screws and nails) and know how to hang a picture, change out a door knob and assemble your own Ikea desk. Fixing things around the house yourself can be incredibly empowering, especially if your husband isn't handy or never seems to get around to doing it himself. Even if you marry Mr. Fix It, knowing your own way around a tool box means you won't need to keep nagging him when you just want it done.
I figured since its St Pattys Day Weekend a majority of you will be drinking lots of goof water! So heres the Top 6 Hangover Remedies: What works and what doesn't!!!!
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, a new study from Health Magazine explores the top 10 hangover “cures,” and debunks the myths that don’t help at all.
Hair of the Dog: Even though another drink may seem like all you need, avoid alcohol the morning after, it will only put off your hangover until later, not get rid of it The worst thing to do is to have another drink. Although the alcohol may temporarily help your symptoms it will hurt you in the long run. Hangovers make you feel horrible because alcohol is toxic, and you need to give your body a chance to recover.
Greasy breakfast: You know that morning after when you wake up craving a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich? Resist the urge! Although there is no official evidence that greasy food will ease hangover pain, people swear by this hangover cure. "Greasy food is just going to give you heartburn," stick with easy-to-digest foods such as toast or cereal. You want to get calories right back into your system.
Exercise: Hitting the gym is a great way to get yourself feeling back to normal but that really depends on if you have the energy to make that happen. Remember: If you've been drinking heavily, you could be a little dehydrated, you could be metabolically behind on your nutrition, and exercise is going to require hydration and nutrition.
Alka-Seltzer: This famous fizzy drink has been used to treat hangovers and settle a queasy stomach. In 2001 the company even introduced a Morning Relief formulation for hangovers. Still, other ingredients, notably aspirin and citric acid, may irritate your stomach after a night of heavy drinking.
Hangover Pills: Some of the most popular hangover cures in a bottle, Chaser, PreToxx, and RU 21, claim to be effective, but very little evidence backs up these claims. Hangover pills that have been studied are not effective, or only help against a few complaints…but not all. Instead of a hangover pill, doctors suggest taking multivitamins to restore nutrients you may have lost from drinking.
Coffee: If you drink coffee every day, having a cup when you’re hung over may or may not be a good choice. For instance, without a cup you may have a headache on top of your hangover from caffeine withdraw, but the effects of caffeine could make your hangover worse since caffeine narrows your blood vessels and boosts blood pressure. If you drink coffee regularly, you might try a very small amount in the morning. Wait 30 to 60 minutes and see how you feel it.

Boxer A survey conducted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals lists the top 10 most mischievous pets. Boxers wound up in the number 10 spot for getting into things they shouldn’t. Boxers are spirited and need daily exercise. A tired dog is a good dog. Tired dogs do not get into trouble by eating things they shouldn’t.
Beagles are the ninth naughtiest pet, according to the survey. Owners need to “pet proof” their homes, just like child proofing. Take your own medication in a closed room away from your pet. Do not leave any food, such as chocolate, on counters or tables.
Shih tzu dogs may look small, cute and innocent, but their craftiness lands them at number 8 on the survey, mostly attributed to their curious nature.
American pit bull terriers came in at number 7. Guests should always be informed about these dogs and other pets. You may know not to put your purse or suitcase on the floor, but grandma may not. Many animals get into medications, cleaning products and other potentially poisonous concoctions that way.
German shepherds are number 6 on the survey. German Shepherds are a high energy breed. If this energy is not channeled into appropriate behaviors, they can get themselves into trouble eating toxic items.
Yorkshire terriers, number 5 on the list, often get into trouble as a result of their curious nature. Their tiny size allows them to sneak into places they shouldn’t.
Golden retrievers may look majestic, but that doesn’t prevent them from getting into trouble. They wound up in the number 4 spot. Goldens love to ‘mouth’ things, as it is in their retriever genes. Finding appropriate chew toys is very important to keep them from eating inappropriate things.
Chihuahuas, number 3 on the list, are notorious for ingesting dropped pills. They are like little vacuums.
Cats lumped into one group as domestic shorthairs -- are in the No. 2 spot. Cats are into plants and will drool profusely if they get a bad taste in their mouths. She added that many owners see this happening after flea spray has been applied and call the APCC. The cat is usually OK and is just trying to spit out the yucky-tasting substance.
Labrador retrievers earned the dubious distinction of being the most naughty pets. Labradors are very popular and they are a very busy and mouthy breed. They like to eat both food and non-food items. The latter often get them into trouble.
This past weekend we sent a point listener to the Matchbox 20 show. Not only did our winner get to go to the show in Richmond.. but she also got to meet the band!!
She sent us a FB post thanking us:
Just wanted to say thank you for sending my brother and I to see Matchbox Twenty in Richmond! It was beyond amazing! Meeting them was wonderful, they are such cool guys! We even got a song dedicated to us! We can't begin to express how much we appreciated that trip, thanks again! Brooke and Austin.
After reading this post I thanked her for listening and was in awe about how cool it was that they dedicated a song to them. Then Brooke shared with me the fact that SHE HAD AUDIO OF THE SHOUTOUT! Not only did she have the audio but Rob Thomas even tweeted her!
Brooke then sent me this message: a little background- We grew up listening to mb20 with my Dad. Tragically, we lost our dad to suicide a few years ago. He was and is the most amazing man ever. Alot of cool things happened relating to mb20 after his death. randomly their songs would come on in really dark times, etc. We relate mb20 to him in every way. When we hear a mb20 song it is almost like our dad is here comforting us. When I found out I won, it was amazing! I cried so hard and I knew it was from him. All my friends know what mb20 means to me and when they found out I won, they were floored. The trip couldn't have gone to more deserving people. We really need it. I have 3 brothers, but I chose to take my little brother. We had the best time, I wrote them a letter about howmuch we appreciate them and that is why he dedicated such a sad song. It was a life changing moment, we are soo appreciative of 94.9 for the oppurtunity.
This is so sweet and it gives me chills thinking about it! We couldn't of picked a better winner! Im so glad that Brooke and her brother had such a great time at the show. And it gives me a mile wide smile knowing that this had such a positive effect on someone. Can you believe all of those incidences where MB20 songs would play and all of the situations where she felt her fathers presence!? incredible!!
The Secret To Beautiful Hair? It's In Your Kitchen!!
Oysters Said to have aphrodisiac properties, oysters are among the best dietary sources of zinc, a mineral that is often recommended to people experiencing hair loss. Some studies indicate you need zinc for normal hair pigmentation as well. Zinc promotes cell reproduction and tissue growth and repair, all of which are important to hair health. A single oyster provides about 37 milligrams (mg) of zinc, more than a day’s worth for adults. Other good sources of zinc: Red meat, whole grains, other shellfish.
Beer Hidden in all of that foam is a healthy dose of silicon, a natural element that some research suggests can help to thicken and strengthen hair. Studies have also found that silicon can improve hair that is dry and brittle. But when it comes to alcohol, more is definitely not better -- the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that men limit themselves to no more than two drinks a day (or two 12-ounce beers), and women should stick to one. Other (non-alcoholic) sources of silicon: Bananas, root vegetables, whole grains.
Strawberries Vitamin C is needed to maintain the natural oils on the scalp and hair to keep hair shiny, and strawberries are a good way to get it. Vitamin C is essential to normal circulation, and good blood flow to the scalp helps keep the skin and hair healthy. Adults need about 60 to 100 mg of Vitamin C per day -- one cup of whole fresh strawberries provides about 85 mg. Other great sources of Vitamin C: Broccoli, sweet red and green peppers, tomato juice, citrus fruits.
Avocados A favorite ingredient in many commercial and homemade hair conditioners, avocados are rich in several nutrients including biotin, a B vitamin that promotes hair growth and scalp health. B vitamins are coenzymes essential to helping reactions occur in the body that can promote healthy cell growth, which is important for hair.. B vitamins and other coenzymes also stimulate blood flow throughout the body, including to the scalp. Other good sources of biotin: Egg yolks, nuts, whole grains, cauliflower, bananas.
Canola Oil This common cooking oil is a great source of Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that can help keep hair strong and flexible by protecting it from the damages of sunlight and other environmental threats that break down the protein bonds of hair and weaken it. Many vegetable oils are rich in Vitamin E, but canola oil is versatile and easy to use in recipes, and is less expensive and has a longer shelf life than other oils. One tablespoon of canola oil provides about 2.5 mg of Vitamin E, or about one-fifth of the 12 mg of Vitamin E recommend daily for adults. Other great sources of Vitamin E: Wheat germ, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, roasted almonds, safflower and sunflower oil.
WHAT A WEEKEND!!! First off, I started friday night out the right way by going to the Delta Rae show at the Norva.. SIMPLY AMAZING. I swear they are 10x better LIVE which is a rare thing now days. Such a talented group and I cant wait to see them again, we have all the pics and videos at pointradio.com
Saturday was a pretty fun day too me and my honey went fishing all day and I caught a nice little piggy... 6.6!! It was such a beautiful day to fish and we took advantage of it. THEN he surprised me with a GOPRO camera!! I was so excited! (not to mention those things aint cheap) so he put a mile wide smile on my face.
We really like to do outdoorsy things such as fishing, hiking, swimming and all that jazz so the gopro will be awesome. We took it fishing on sunday and you can submerge it under water and capture the fish getting hooked and everything! its awesome. What will be really neat too is when we go out on the motorcycle we can attach it anywhere on the bike, or our heads or anything! So be prepared for some GoPro videos in the near future!
Kyle also was super artistic this weekend, he welded a spider at work! I posted the photo below. He's a welder and he makes all kinds of cool gadgets and the spider is super cute, I named it Sunny.
Sunday was the usual family day. We visited both of our parents and siblings and had a nice dinner with mine. It was also a close friend of mines birthday so we had brunch with her sunday at woody mcgees in VB. That place aint to bad!!
I cant wait for the warm weather thats slowly but surely approaching! That means bikini time, fishing and all kinds of outdoors stuff!!
This weekend was a lot of fun! Friday I thought I was coming down with the yuckiness that everyone else at the station has been getting, but luckily some rest and 4 gartorades later I felt fine. I ended up having to stop by the 3rd annual hampton roads tattoo convention and it was awesome! I've never been to a tattoo convention before but it was a neat experience! It was really neat to interview some nationally recognized tattoo artist and learn why they are so passionate about tattooing and what got them involved in such an alternative form of art.
The tattoo community is like a society, with a bunch of different socities in it (if that makes any sense) A majority of these people I met all fell in love with the medium of art and have made themselves very successfull from it. And the people that have the tattoos (instead of giving them) come from all different walks of life.
After the convention on friday I made a video, which I shared on my last post if you want to check that out. Saturday was FISHING DAY! We had an alright day, we did find the honey hole though in the lake we life on and we were bringing in those fishies one after another. Kyles brother joined us on this trip and he ended up having a good time as well. Lets just say im excited for the warm weather to come because fishing in the cold is not always the most delightful experience.
Then Sunday was the usually family day :) Probably my most favorite day of the week!
below I posted a video of kyle and my niece emma on the trampoline. its pretty cute.
