I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 12 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens: Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
We’ve become a society addicted to FOMO…the fear of missing out. That’s why we have our smart phones close by at all times. But it’ll also ruin your date. Believe me, nobody wants to have to compete with your phone for attention!
Using It For Anything Other Than an Emergency: Only a few things actually count as an "emergency" during a date: Your boss calling, a close family member getting sick, or somebody nearby needing immediate medical care. If you absolutely have to make a call for some other reason, let your date know upfront, explain why, then briefly excuse yourself.
Keeping Your Phone on the Dinner Table: When you're at a restaurant, your phone should be kept in your pocket or your purse on SILENT. Keeping it out on the table, or anywhere in you or your date's line of sight, is just rude.
Posting Pictures and Updates to Facebook and Twitter. Don't post on social media unless you've cleared it with your date first. That means no status updates, no "checking in" or "tagging" them, and definitely no posting pictures of your food.
And there’s more! Look into it here!
