Not gonna lie, I love this outfit.
I bought both the shirt and the pants specifically for our family portraits in Palm Springs and I'm just so obsessed with all the flare going on! Also, I got pregnant this time last year, so peplum is a trend that I needed to wait on til now. I'm loving it. And it totally makes me look pregnant again in the photo above : )
This week's wow topic is money (finally we have moved on from all the talk on intimacy).
The chapter begins with jokes about wives being big spenders and such and then she goes into why finances become a main issue between spouses.
The author believes that financial disagreements aren't the real issue, but the real issue is our motivation.
The four "Inner Drives" that she addresses are:
1. Authority-- to some people, money = power = opportunities.
2. Attention-- using money to make memories or give to other people.
3. Acceptance-- this person purchases peace. Overspending = stress and underspending = rest.
4. Accuracy-- this person follows a system and sticks to a budget religiously.
Your husbands money-motivation style may be very different than yours, but this shouldn't be looked at as negative. His differences in this area can make you a better person.
The suggested "wow date" could be practical this week.
Why not discuss the family budget or your money motivation styles?
Or you could strengthen your own skills with money by reading some sort of budget book and then sharing what you've learned with your husband!
Sounds kind of like a boring week/date/topic, but I believe it will be incredibly beneficial to a lot of us!
I'll tell you right now that my motive is a combination between #3 and 4.
I'm getting better, but finances used to haunt me because I'm just such a stresser-outter.
Which motive do you think you are? Or your spouse?
