Do you lift up your husband?

I've read three blog posts this week pertaining to lifting up our husbands. This is extremely important. Our husbands need 4 things from us: sex, a good and clean home environment with a well stocked refrigerator of yummy meals, intellectual conversation, and most of all to lifted up. They need to hear thank you as much as us ladies want to hear thank you for our hard work. Be proud of your husband. Keep the bedroom alive and going (I know this can be difficult when we're tired and have been holding children all day, but there are things you can do without much work ;). Make sure that you have a smile and a meal ready for your husband when he comes home. Watch the news not just the latest Real Housewife franchise so you can have intellectual coversations. Help your husband in any way you can!

For instance to help my husband I made him his favorite cookies, organized the children's bookcases (this is important to him), and helping him with business paperwork (which he hates).

He is one of the reasons I'm losing weight. Not just because he wants me to but of course he finds me more attractive when I'm thinner, but because he likes to be active outdoors and I already have a bad ankle and extra weight makes it worse.

Someone once told me to always be your husband's girlfriend. Best. Advice. Ever. We've been married for 14 years and this has helped us tremendously.


Read this, this, and this to be inspired.

The Mr.'s Favorite Pot Pie
2 pie crusts (I use refrigerated from Trader Joes)
2C shredded chicken
1.5C or 1 can (drained) mix vegetables
1 can cream of chicken soup or 1.5C bechamel sauce (use the rest of the sauce on Macaroni and Cheese, yum)
1/2C milk

Preheat oven to 350. Place 1 crust on the bottom of a Pyrex plate. Mix the soup/Bechamel, veggies, and milk. Add the chicken and combine. Pour into pie shell. Top with other crust. Take a fork and poke several holes into the crust. Bake for 35-40 minutes until lightly golden brown.

Serve with a salad and easy cobbler for dessert.

Summer vacay

So the chitlins are out of school for a little while. Alex has graduated. He's working at Auntie Anne's at the mall. Anne just left this morning to go visit her maternal grandparents in Phoenix for 2 weeks. I live her, but Holla! That chick is HIGH maintenance! Will is off for 2 weeks of homeschool, but will begin again as he has math tutoring, read out loud for 20 min a day, and finish his grammar book from homeschooling. Will is one of those kids that if he isn't continuously using skills they go out the window come August.

Other than these, what's our plans? Outside of the regular visits to grandparents, we are going camping, St. Simons Island, and small trips in our state (I've lived here since 1995 and have yet to go to Plains to Jimmy Carter's house!), but mainly, we'll be sitting by the pool!

What about y'all? What are your big summer plans?

Prom 2012

Alex went with his sweeter than pie (and gorgeous!) girlfriend, Anastasia, for his senior prom. You can see why she's a Hollister model!

Anne went with one of her best friends, Olivia. Anne was just a sophomore and was only going so her friend wouldn't have to go alone. We were not going go spend hundreds of dollars this year. Still, she is such a pretty girl so it didn't matter, so she wore her homecoming dress.

(Graduation pictures soon)
