I Love my Husband

I found this blog post the other day while on pinterest (which has become super addicting ever since I've been confined to the sofa for 30 minute blocks of time while feeding my son).

100 ways to make your marriage rock

For someone on a strict budget, who feels a little frumpy (due to having just given birth and owning a rather shabby wardrobe too), who's husband has a very strong "receiving gifts" love language, who's been married just about 10 years, and who's been trying to figure out how to add a little spice to life this blog post is wonderful. Thus I decided I needed to post it to my blog.

I think just about everything on this list is great. Most of the things are common sense, yeah I should do that regularly type ideas but to be reminded, to have the list to reference, well I needed that. I also love that almost all of the ideas are free!

Some of my favorites include: Hide a treat in his glovebox or desk at work, Don’t nag him, Compliment each other, Take one day a month to make your spouse your total focus, Choose not to be annoyed by an irritating behavior/disappointment, Sit on the same side of a booth at a restaurant, Remember your spouse rocks- even when they don't. Ok, I really like most of the 100 ideas so you should probably just read the list.

Happy Wednesday to you all!


  1. Have you read her book "Don't Make Me Come Up There!"? I highly recommend for some entertainment. She is very funny.

  2. Cute list! I would add for the husbands to cook dinner or do the dishes once in a while and for the wives to mow the grass occassionally -- I love it when my husband does dinner duty, and he loves when I surprise hime with completed yard work (in my non-preggo days, that is!).

  3. What a lovely post. My OH leaves presents in my glove box, usually a few chocolates. In return I sometimes offer to take the bins out for him. You've got to keep the romance alive. Lol.

  4. I'm a new follower! Love your blog!!!
