Those jeans are workin’ for ya!
I went to a Girlfriends’ Night Out with some friends a while ago where Kathy Lipp (author of The Marriage Project and The Husband Project) was speaking.
She talked about keeping your marriage alive and shared some great (and hilarious) stories and tips.
One of the things she suggested was writing your husband notes–saying simple things (“I love you”) or complimenting him (“Those jeans are workin’ for ya!”). It was a great reminder to be intentional about keeping the spark alive.
Fast-forward a couple weeks later, and Mike and I were at our son’s baseball game…
I was sitting on the bleachers and Mike was standing in front of me, down by the field.
I looked at him and thought,
Well, those jeans really are working for him.
So I got out my phone and sent him a text, saying that.
I watched and waited for him to get the text, but he was too into the game to hear his phone.
I figured he’d get it later.
when our daughter was playing with his phone, she was the one who got it, not him.
(“What does that mean?”– her face all scrunched up.)
So I guess the moral of the story is,
write your husband notes
and send him texts to make him feel good,
but just make sure he’s the one who gets them. Ha! :)
Have a great weekend, everyone! Do you have any fun plans? We’ve got a soccer tournament and it’s supposed to be 105 degrees. Looking forward to it, but I think we’ll be melting!
See you back here on Mom-Monday!
