I Dropped This Hint To My Wife … And I’m LOVING It.

First, I must make a confession … I’m on Pinterest (find me here). Yes, to my men friends … you may want to take my man-card, BUT to this point … Pinterest has been pretty good to me. Let me explain…

Towards the end of the year, my wife was spending a lot of time on Pinterest and finding new ideas, recipes, and other things on it so I had to see what Pinterest was. If she found something that interesting, I wanted to know what it was. After looking around on Pinterest, I realized it was a female-dominated website that I thought I might bring a little testosterone to. So I joined. After joining, I’ve enjoyed “pinning” man-stuff, running stuff and other things that deal with hobbies of mine. I also noticed that Pinterest had a lot of things that dealt with marriage (of which I’m very outspoken).

I soon found an idea on Pinterest that had to do with a year of romance and monthly dates. I quickly showed it to Lea and said, “Hint, hint.” She took the idea and ran with it.  This morning I got up and found this by my coffee pot. It’s a folder full of ideas, plans and fun for the month of January.

There will be a envelope showing up each month that contains pre-planned activities just for us. Some dates will take place at home, some out on the town.  All 12 envelopes are different. Here’s a little of the contents from this month.

I love it when Lea is willing to be proactive in our marriage. If you’d like more information on the envelope system, where it came from, how to get it, etc … you can CLICK HERE and it will take you to the site where we found them.  Lea also joined The Loving Wive’s Club here, which gives creative ideas and printables each month.

Try it out. Bless your marriage. Be proactive :-)

    Pinterest has been very good to my stomach thanks to my wife. I can’t seen to get past anything but the humor and photography boards…

    Glad you have a board for things you don’t like. Or as i like to think of it, “Gift ideas for Trey”.

  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.

  • Chin up Childress Bobcats. We couldn't be prouder. Great fight tonight.
