I recently discovered Caldrea Counter Top Spray at Target. In the Caldrea line they also have hand soap and hand lotion. While they have a number of scents I personally love the Ginger, Citrus Basil scent. I found it's a quick, easy way to wipe down the counters at the end of the day while infusing the kitchen with a great smell.

What's a great way to relieve stress? (The more unusual the better!)

Dig out the instrument you played as a kid. I've recently started playing the piano again after quite a few years and can't believe how relaxing it is. If you play loud enough you can drown out the kids :)

Please share a link to a photo of a great birthday cake you made or bought.

I can't take credit for this cake as a good friend of mine made it but I thought it was adorable. For her daughter's 18th birthday she made a water park cake. I love her creativity! http://www.wonderwomanimnot.com/2011/07/water-park-cake.html

One of the best triple chocolate cakes I've ever made! This link shows it as a bundt cake, but I've also made it as a double layer cake with white chocolate butter cream frosting. It was delicious. http://www.wonderwomanimnot.com/2011/09/triple-chocolate-bundt-cake-recipe.html

Why did you choose to have or not have a prenup?

Liz

When my husband and I got married at 20 we didn't have a pre-nup because quite frankly we had no money or assets. After 22 years of marriage everything we have we've built together. If for some reason I found myself in a situation where I was getting remarried (a good friend of mine lost her husband so it does happen) I would probably ask for a pre-nup. NOT because I didn't trust the person or think the marriage would last (I wouldn't get married if that was the case) but because I have two children to consider. Anything that was earned within the second marriage would belong to the second marriage but protecting the assets that were earned with my children's father would be my priority. If something were to happen to me and/or God forbid the marriage didn't last I would want to make sure that my children received those assets. I don't know much about your situation but if this is a concern I would suggest discussing with a lawyer. If there are children involved you would probably want to considering establishing a will, POA for health and finances, a trust, etc prior to the marriage. Discussing finances prior to committing yourself is critical. Finances can put a huge strain on a lot of marriages. Good luck!
