Romancing Marriage 2

Dh (still working on the darling part) and I went out on Saturday night. Without the kids...didnt eat fast food either! We went to a dance at our church called: "Romancing Marriage 2".

We went last year also...guess we had a good time, cuz we went this year too.
It was a nice night. Got all dressed up... even put on makeup...and has been a LONG time since I had paint on my face.
We had a really nice family style dinner... beer, wine, and soda... and a HUGE dessert bar. Yes...we are Catholic. Thanks for noticing!
After dinner we watched an episode of Home Improvement. Apparently, HI was a good show to emulate how a family should work. I agree that compared to most shows today, it actually has some morals and such. I always watched HI...yet I didnt realize at the time how family oriented it was.
After the video, we had music and dancing. Last year there was at least 12 Anne Murry songs... I think this year they cut it down to at least 9. It is beginning to become an improvement. I suppose it is difficult to pick music that everyone likes... since just at our table we have been married 4 years, another couple married 5 years, and a third couple that have been married 55 years! Yes... 55 years... married to each other!!!!! Bravo to them! Now...they were upset there were so many "loud" songs... they were NOT talking about the AM I would guess that they were talking about Celine Dion (gosh...never thought someone would think she was too modern). There was also risque talk that Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's song "Let's make love" was tooo raunchy.Dh would not dance with I really didnt care what they were playing.... but thinking maybe next year it may be time for a pod cast! *evil grin*
Now... if I had to make a list of songs I would best describ to help "Romance Marriage"... these would probably make the list:
1. Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi
2. Novemeber Rain - GnR
3. Slow Hand - Conway Twitty
4. Damm, wish I was your lover - (dont know who sings it)
5. F*^% you like an animal - Nine Inch Nails
6. In another's Eyes - Garth and Trish
7. Shameless - Garth
8. It's only Make Believe - Conway Twitty
9. The Rose - Conway Twitty ( Yes... this IS my fav singer!!!)
10. Waltz Across Texas - Ernest Tubb
11. Suspisous Minds - Elvis (long Hawaii version... yes... obsessed fan here)
12. The Chair - George Strait
13. Statue of a Fool - Jack Greene
14. True Love - Conway & Loretta
15. Only One Love - Ronnie Milsap

Now...that is a short list... and many of these songs arent *so* bad... maybe I'd even consider taking off Nine Inch Nails... since we are in a church and all... *blush* but's ok if you are married!!!!!!!!

Everyone also receieved a list of suggestions to stay happlily married... Here are a few of the tidbits of advice:
Marry someone that you enjoy listening and talking to.
Remember that the best gift that you can give your children is to love their mother/father.
Fight Naked!
Do you want to be right or do you want to be married?
Remember that "love is like childhood. You need to learn to share."
Marriage is not 50/50, it's two people giving 100/100 all of the time.
The secret to a happy marriage is two TV's!
