Now This Is A Wedding Proposal (It Had Me In Tears!)

Saw this over on Jezebel today. They’re not huge fans of public proposals on that site, but I am. Let love be love, I say. It’s not for you, it’s for the couple! Like this proposal? I loved it! (Played out Bruno Mars tune aside!)

The Other Women In Your Husband’s Life: Appropriate vs Get Real Lady

I’ve blogged in the past about my total willingness to accept that my husband has a “work wife” in his life. I know her. I trust her. And, she has proven time and time again to have both his back and OUR back! (That’s three thumbs-up in my book.) That said, there are a few other women he has encountered through his work life that I’d much rather not hear about ever again. I won’t go into too many details (I’m aware many of his co-workers, both past and present, could possibly be reading this, and he doesn’t need the drama!) but I’m going to sum it up with a few thoughts that will get you to where I’m headed with this, and then you can tell me what you think…

The Trouble With Love Is…

Judging from the many emails and tweets I have received about my rather extended blogging hiatus (thanks for the love, guys!), it’s safe to say my little “break” had started to concern a few of you. Not to worry; We’re fine, and I wasn’t giving up on my commitment “to blog my way through marriage, openly and honestly,” but instead just pausing for a private moment of reflection…

11 Things Women Really Want From Wedding Night Sex

Now, let’s be honest here:  The majority of married couples don’t actually get around to having sex on their wedding night. You might as well scrap what watching all those rom-coms taught you. After all the craziness that is surviving your wedding day in tact, you’re usually drunk, exhausted, or both by the time you get back to your room. That said, who wants to be a statistic? (Especially on their wedding night.) We didn’t!

I say, add “getting laid” to your wedding day to-do-list, right alongside all the other tasks you’ll go bat shit crazy over seeing go undone. And, if you’re gonna make it a priority, you might as well do it right. Men, here’s a handy little guide to what your wife-to-be will really want to get out of the evening’s activities, and ladies, here’s your first official “honey do” list.

A Good Laugh
Undressing is sexy; slipping out of a 20-pound gown is not. It will be funny, and you should laugh long and hard about it. The same goes for all the other “bloopers” you’re bound to experience that night.

Naughty Vows
You’ve already vowed to cherish and protect each other at all costs. Now it’s time to make the juicier promises you fully intend to keep. You get where I’m going with this, right? Let’s keep this post safe for work and let you fill in the blanks.

Background Music
This is the part where the movies got it right. Nothing sets the mood quite like a naughty playlist. [Insert her favorite slow jams here.]

Every woman wants to be told they’re the most beautiful bride in the world on the big day. If your betrothed says she doesn’t want the same shameless flattery between the sheets on the big night, she’s lying. Case closed.

Liquid Confidence
Nerves and weddings go hand in hand – even when you’ve known each other forever. Bring your bubbly of choice to the bedroom and pour as you play. Continue reading

A Homemade Recipe for A Happy Wife

The other day someone asked my husband a very interesting question. They said: “Your wife seems to smile all the time. How do you keep her so happy?” Now, he laughed at first, because he knows good and well there is no such thing as a wife who’s happy wife 24/7, but then he took a stab at giving them what he felt was a sufficient answer. He wants to post a video blog about what he said, so I’ll hold on going into it for now. However, I would like to share what I think the recipe for a happy wife is.

Wives, send this to the hubby if you agree. Men, listen up (even if you’re not married yet!). This is how my husband makes me happy — and as most of you can see, I smile a lot. Okay, let’s do this!

Recipe For A Happy Wife

Ingredient List:



  1. Begin with love. She’ll want your unconditionally, even on her worst days.
  2. Trust in her and the decisions she makes with and for you and herself. No wife wants to feel like you’re suspicious of her thoughts and actions. If you want her trust you must give her yours.
  3. Have faith in your marriage and your future together. Not believing in your success as a unite is the fastest way to put a frown on her wife.
  4. Share your joy with her and make sure she has her own to share. A healthy relationship needs happiness as much as it needs love. Consider it the oxygen and water she’ll need to survive the hardest of days. Continue reading
