I may have been born in Los Angeles but my home was Cuban. Every night we had white rice with some form of meat. Bananas either came in green, dark brown or yellow where 2 of them were fried up for a savory or sweet side dish. Treats in our family were usually flans or a shake made with tropical fruits that my classmates had never heard of. Sundays always meant that my Dad would break out the blender and make shakes. Our favorites were usually mamey or trigo. These wonderful memories with my family were also what set us apart from everyone. So, when McDonald’s comes out with a Dulce de Leche Milk Shake, I had to make sure that they got it right.
We get a lot of books to review. As most of our readers know, one half of CoupleDumb is a psychotherapist with almost 25 years of experience in marriage and family therapy and addiction counseling. What you may not know is that Lee is working on her doctorate in Psychology. When we received this book for review it seemed like it was perfect timing because Lee was just finishing up a literature review on emotional granularity. What is that you ask and why is it important and why would you talk about that on CoupleDumb? We are happy you asked!
We found something new for CoupleDumb’s Favorite Things!
We have been married for a long time. One of our secrets is that our relationship is our priority. We do little things to remind each other that we are important. A text message. A Facebook update. An inside joke. A reminder of a memory that we created long ago.
I have a small bathroom. A really, really small bathroom. Not only is it tiny but it is also in a house that has not been updated in the past 40 years. Things that are uncommon in today’s houses, like carpet in the bathroom, we have in our house. So when Delta sent me a new toilet to install and review, I was a little concerned. Sometimes matching old with new is a mistake.
