Guest Post: And Here's to You, Mrs. Robinson

While I am cruising away with the King on our honeymoon, I have some fantastic, amazing and down right hilarious gals guest posting for me (so sweet huh?!). Please show them some love as they are sharing their love stories and advice in honor of my wedding!

Hello Bright and Beautiful readers!!
I'm so happy to be filling in for Kaylee today while she is off being a NEWLYWED!!!
So happy for her and The King!


Most of you probably don't know me so I should introduce myself!
My name is Megan and I blog over at And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson. I love to have a place where I can go to express my thoughts, share my stories, and hopefully inspire and uplift other women. I like to talk about womanhood, motherhood, marriage and everything in between! I believe that through blogging we can create a strong, community of women that can support one another through the good and the bad. I have loved getting to know so many bloggers already and would love to get to know you!

For the last year, I also had the privilege of writing for the Stronger Marriage blog. It was an amazing opportunity and I loved every minute of it! Since I was constantly researching and reading articles and books on marriage, it is a topic that is on my mind a lot. So if you guys don't mind, I would love to talk a little bit about marriage today!

And maybe it's a good little lesson to pass on to the new King and Queen as well :)

A little while ago my husband was sitting on in our arm chair and all of a sudden he said, "This chair smells!" Then he moved over to the couch and said, "Ugh!! This smells bad too! Why does everything smell?"
{By the way, we have a 2 year old so this statement wasn't that big of a are smelly!} 

Then he stopped, thought for a moment, and said, "I think it's my shirt. I think my shirt is the thing that stinks. Smell my shirt." He leaned over, I sniffed it, and I agreed, "Yep it smells like poop!"

He kind of laughed a little but mainly he looked taken aback that I just told him he smelled like poo. So he got up and walked back to the bedroom without saying much.

Later when I went in to get ready for bed, I asked him what was wrong. He told me he was a little mad that I told him his shirt smelled like poop.

So naturally, I started laughing uncontrollably!
I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face.
Then he started laughing.
And then we were both just sitting in bed laughing for a good 10 minutes at how ridiculous the night's conversation had been.

Before this whole ridiculous interaction happened between us, I had been really upset and annoyed with my husband for stupid and petty issues.
And everything he did just kind of fueled my fire.
I was too prideful and stubborn to give up my fight and also too stupid to really see that I was the one making myself miserable, not him.

After we got done laughing and joking about my husband's shirt smelling, I realized how important it was to just laugh.

Laugh with each other.
Have fun with each other!

I've noticed that the days when my husband and I just have fun,
when we joke more, play more, relax more,
are the days that I find my love for him growing stronger than I thought it could be.

There is a lot to be said about couples that can work hard together and get through the most difficult times still holding hands.
But I think there's just as much to be said about couples that can face those difficult times with smiles on their faces, laughter in their voices, and joy in their hearts.

I would like to encourage all couples to have a little more fun together! Go get ice cream cones, watch a dumb reality show, build a fort, go ice skating, play at the local arcade, tell childhood stories, play video games, make up a new recipe for brownies...
DO SOMETHING that may be a little more relaxed and out of the ordinary.
Remember back to when you first started dating,
and watch your love blossom!

Thank you so much, Kaylee for letting me post on your blog today!!
I am so incredibly happy for you!!

p.s. I just read my husband the post and he started laughing really hard and couldn't believe I was sharing this story. I'm a bad wife for airing all our dirty laundry.... literally {poop smelling shirts.}
