In This Age of Technology

I absolutely LOVE this boy!!
This past weekend we spent the weekend at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. It was for a Verizon Winners Circle event honoring all the top sellers for 2012. Beautiful resort and a wonderful get away. Friday night there was a welcome event on the back lawn. This is us. Me and my new boots, a dress and my handsome cowboy.
Friday night all fancy in my boots!
 Saturday, we had a scheduled event in Gruene, TX for antiquing and then wine tasting at the Dry Comal Creek Winery. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend and perfect for walking around a quaint little town in Texas. As you can see by the pictures above, Allan wasn't completely sure about the whole wine tasting. However, when we were leaving, he had a glass of wine in his hand. He did find one he liked.

   Saturday night was Casino and Awards night. I have been to many corporate events with Hilton and I've had some great times. I will admit, I loved the whole casino theme and I don't even gamble. There was food and drink and free poker chips to play Black Jack, Texas Hold 'Em and tokens to play the slots. The whole weekend was much appreciated and lot of fun.
Saturday night dinner and fun!
As I think back on past relationships and my current one, it's come to my attention that people tend to spend more time texting sentiments to each other and talking on the phone about life stuff and not as much time as they should talking face to face about deep feelings. We are all recovering from some rough relationships - or most of us I would guess. I mean, how vulnerable do we really want to be with each other? How do you really grown to trust each other? There are things we can all work on in relationships, right? I heard the below list on the radio this morning and I have to say, we have a VERY good start to our relationship.

1. Share responsibilities: Four out of five happy couples share decision-making . . . two out of three share financial decisions . . . and two in three split chores evenly.

2. Have lots of sex: Three out of five couples said they have sex at least twice a week . . . one in three have it at least four times a week . . . and 16% of couples do it EVERY DAY.

3. Be affectionate when you're NOT having sex: 69% of happy couples kiss each other and show affection several times a day.

4. Be honest: 70% are always honest with each other . . . and don't even tell little white lies.

5. Stay in shape: Three in four couples say it's important to be in shape . . . and 18% say their partner's physical appearance is the thing they're most attracted to.

6. Don't talk about politics: 37% of happy couples say they NEVER talk about politics . . . and another 47% rarely talk about it.

7. Be the same religion: 71% of happy couples have the same religious beliefs.

8. Communicate: 72% have in-depth conversations about work . . . life . . . and family on a regular basis.
