Introducing The Love Homework Link Party: This Week Say It On A Post It

Share the Love

post it love note for husbandLife is filled with lessons, we all know that. Since there’s always something to be learned from love and marriage it’s safe to say that being married is really sort of like being a student sitting in the same classroom for life. Like it or not, your marriage is always in session. Sometimes you want to skip class and other times you can’t wait to show up and show off your skills.

Most of us may have escaped the walls of the traditional classrooms by now but let’s face it ladies, we wives still have homework to do! It’s just like back during your school days when you wanted to ace a test or raise your grade, you had to put in the work. Now I wasn’t always an A+ student but I was certainly great at group projects. That’s what gave me the inspiration for this new link party series on Man Wife and Dog. It’s called Love Homework. Each week I’m going to put up a little something something you can try that might in some way help you better understand or enjoy your marriage. It’s meant to be fun way for us wife bloggers to get a little post inspiration each week and to help us share link love with one another.

You in? Good!!

The Rules

1) Stop by Man Wife and Dog Blog on Tuesday to find out what the week’s homework assignment is. If it’s something you’d like to try, do so, then blog about it sometime that week.

2) You must include the Love Homework badge at the bottom of each post so that other “students” can easily identify each other and to help get the word out about Love Homework!

3) Grab the link hop party code for each post by clicking “Get The Code Here” and place it in the bottom of your post using the html editor. (This will keep the party going on your blog!)

4) Come back and add a link to your “homework” post in the link party beneath that week’s assignment post.

5) Visit the other “homework” posts and show come comment love.

6) And you’re done! It’s that easy, promise!

(Remember: Inserting the badge into your post is as simple as copying and pasting the badge code below into your html post editor. If you’re having trouble getting the badge to show up properly, try replacing all the smart quotes (those curly quotation marks — there are 16 total) within the code once its in your blog editor to make sure they’re all cleaned up.)

As always if you have any questions, or problems feel free to reach out to me anytime.

Okay now that we’ve gotten all the official stuff out of the way, let’s have some fun shall we?

The Homework

Write a little message on a post it for your husband and leave it somewhere you know he’ll find it. What did you write? What was his reaction? Did it spark any interesting conversation?

I can’t wait to read your “homework” this week!! Here’s mine:

Yesterday evening I wrote “You rock my socks!” on a little round post-it note and left it on our dresser mirror where I knew my husband would see it when he woke up. (He goes to work way before I do.) Over the weekend we took a quick trip to Washington D.C. to visit our new goddaughter and he drove both four-hour legs – one of which was in the pouring rain at night with little visibility – while I just kicked back and played around on Twitter and sang out of tune. I knew he was tired but he refused to let me take over and even when we made it there and he had a chance to sneak in a nap he chose to be a trooper and hang out.

I’m so thankful for having such a supportive and laid back husband. When we finally made it back home after a true whirlwind weekend, I watched while he snored peacefully in our bed after finally having succumb to the exhaustion he’d been avoiding. I wanted to wake him up and thank him ten more times, but I knew that made zero since so Instead I wrote him that little note and left it where he couldn’t miss it in the morning. When I woke up to go to work the next day I had a text from him that read: “You rock my pants!” It was the perfect start to my day and I’m convinced it made it that much better. My little note made both our days a little better!

Now, you try it! Can’t wait to read how it goes ladies. I hope you’ll come back and share the link below!
