Fab Posts Friday: Husband Communication Failure, Fantasies Gone Wrong, The Ready For Baby Checklist And More!

marriage blogs fab posts fridays

I read these posts this week and loved them so much I had to share. Bet, you will too!
In The One Where The Hubby Doesn’t Listen and Injures Himself my girl Dai over at ALovelyDai delves into the idea that the men we love aren’t really listening to the loving things we say, and instead it’s just the nagging (or the game) that they hear. Her I said-he heard examples are hilarious, girls. Go. Read. Laugh. Comment!
Does your hubby have a fantasy you can’t get down with? The wife over at Housewife Blogger knows a thing or two about it. Her post We Don’t Agree On Everything takes a look at what happens when fantasies collide!
I recently discovered Love And Olive Oil and I’m hooked girls. Think healthy yummy recipes made with love. What else could a food lover want? This week she taught me how to combine two of my favorite things; red wine and pasta. Get the Red Wine Spaghetti With Broccoli Recipe now!
Feel like your “communication” comes over as “talking a lot” as far as your husband is concerned? If you answered “hell yes” you’ll enjoy this couple’s VLOG. Go watch Overcoming Our Differences on Marsh Mellow Goodness like now!
In Looking Through Old Blog Posts over on Eat Move write one wife takes a look back at what she and her husband were up to two years ago (through the eyes of their blog) and reflects on what has and hasn’t changed. Make it past the food rant and there’s great stuff in the bottom of this post. Reflection is key in any marriage lades!
In Am I Ready For A Baby on Newlyweds On A Budget you’ll find a very handy little list of how to know when you’re ready for kids. I can totally relate to all the “baby buzz” and talk that newlyweds have to endure. If you can too, check this post out.

1 Plus 1 Equals The Most Romantic Love Song Ever (Thanks Beyonce!)

beyonce 4 album coverThe fabulous and uber talented Beyonce debuted her new song 1+1 on American Idol last night and release the official track today. It’s so beautiful I cried the first time I heard it and every part of me wanted to just get up from my desk, rush home, and go squeeze my husband’s face between my hands.

It’s not often that a song embodies every single emotion and lyric of my soul, but this one my friends, goes there AND some. It’s as if she snuck into my heart and stole every lyric. It’s so raw, beautifully written and beautifully sung. (Beyonce, you’ve got yourself a classic on your hands.) I couldn’t wait to get home and play it for The Man. I did and he loves it too. If we were getting married right now, this would be our official all-things-wedding song. Here’s the song for your enjoyment. Isn’t it beautiful!?


What song could have come right from your heart to his?

fake speeding ticketSilly analogies are what The Man and I do best. This one came to us in the middle of a commercial break during last night’s playoff game while we were mastering the art of coexisting. We had so much fun calling out our fake “offenses” that I just had to share. Here they are! (Note: We issued these tickets to ourselves!) What would yours be?

His Tickets

Offense: Failure to be romantic on special holidays.
Fine: No great gifts from The Wife on the next one unless he can do better.

Offense: Speeding through the cleaning process and misplacing The Wife’s stuff.
Fine: Supervised cleaning for one month.

My Tickets

Offense: Ignoring hubby stop signs and working too much in the evenings
Fine: Nightly technology ban one hour before work

Offense: Excessive talking during The Man’s me time.
Fine: Mandatory girls only nights (out of the house) every other Friday.
