What Are Your Relationship Goals in Three Words?

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 12.54.07 PM

My sister sent me this link a few days ago (thanks, Allie!), which describes how Twitter users are using the hashtag #RelationshipGoalsIn3Words to share their hopes, dreams, and goals for their love life.

Here are mine, currently, seven weeks after having our second baby:

Get more sleep.

Use Seamless less.

Have dates again.

Schedule a vasectomy.

        Well, yes! Sorry. I should change it to “Keep witty partner.”

        My girlfriends like to make fun of me and call him by boyfriend. I am adamant he is not. However, I’m not interested in dating anyone else.

        NOPE! It has only been five and a half weeks, not that I’m counting. I’ll reassess in three or four more.

        Oh AP, I need to see you. And give you a book. This needs to happen.
        .
        We haven’t discussed it… so I’m going with a firm no.

      Hah I didn’t even notice the picture til you pointed it out. AWESOME!

      My husband already knows that once we close up baby shop he’s getting snipped. I figure once the woman grows and births a couple humans, it’s the least the man can do. Well that, and to hand deliver as many margaritas as she wants.

    More sex please

    we both at weird points in our lives right now. Job searching is stressful and it’s definitely taken a toll on our relationship. We’ve got to work on that.

    Ha-ha “Schedule a vasectomy” – every time I saw the midwives while pregnant, they always asked about post partum birth control plans and I got so many funny looks when I said that my husband had a vasectomy 13 years ago.

    Mine are:
    More time alone
    More sleep together
    Create awesome memories

    Move without murder.

    That’s the only one. We bought a house (yay!) and then we sold our house (yay!!!) but it happened so fast (I know, I shouldn’t complain) that we have to move out really quick. We fight about twice a day about some moving-related thing. Ugh.
