Lipstick, butt glue and evening gowns ... and dating lessons? Yep! Here are 7 things I learned about dating all from the world of tiaras and sashes.

Seriously, thanks a lot REPUBLICANS. (I don't know if it's actually Republicans' fault, but I need someone to blame and they're an easy target.) Chocolate is the best. There are multiple holidays built around it.

I could hear my husband open our front door as I prepped dinner in the kitchen. Except I knew it wasn't really my husband, not the same guy I married 68 months ago. Not the same man who held my sobbing body as a positive pregnancy test sat on our bathroom sink, 74 months ago.
