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.
Last, PRAY FOR HIM.
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)
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.
