Okay ladies!  Here are some super-practical ideas for loving, while you’re serving, your husband!

  • You know that favorite dinner of your husbands that you really can’t stand?  That dinner that his mom made when he was growing up?  That dinner that you just aren’t really that fond of?  That dinner that you’d rather kick off the menu permanently?  That dinner whose main ingredient is something you’re allergic to?  (okay, maybe that’s going too far)…well, make it!  Make it with joy, make it on a fairly regular basis, and strive to make it that way HE wants it.
  • Ask your husband what part of the house he would like to see cleaned more/most often.  Then (can you guess?)…clean it!  Clean it with joy, clean it on a more regular basis that you do now, and strive to clean it the way HE wants it.
  • What about your bedroom?  Is it a wee bit too flowery or shimmery for your man?  Tone it down a bit with some natural elements (bamboo, wicker, rattan…anything wood-ish and in it’s natural color).  Add a few plants…non flowering ones of course!  And don’t worry, even bamboo can be romantic in candle light.  :-)
  • What kind of dates do you go on?  If your husband is a sporty type dude, why not go to a ball game next time you head out.  Too expensive?  Go to a local college game or even a high school game.  They are often very cheap – and although you may think it’s “lame”- he’ll love that it’s live and right in front of him.

What do you already do?  Have more ideas to try?  Leave it in a comment…you know we’d ALL love to hear ’em.  :-)
