For the non-domesticated wife...

I married my husband on August 6th 2011 and I'm so lucky to have met him. We will be celebrating our 5 year dating anniversary next month! Exciting! Over the years he's learnt that I'm not exactly the domesticated type. So, if you're the non-domesticated type of lady like myself and you've just taken the plunge, here's my advice for you.

1. Cooking
Your man, whether you are a master chef or not, will appreciate a nice home cooked meal every once in a while. Nothing says "I love you" like a huge chunk of steak, baked potatoes, and veggies.
You should have seen the first time I cooked asparagus. Did I mess it up? Oh you betcha. They were so overcooked and you could have tied them in knots but he still ate them anyways!

2. Cleaning
Most people generally know how to clean. But there's a difference between clean and CLEAN. Know this difference... Especially when he has a lot going on. When my husband walks through the door and sees a clean counter, no dishes, and dinner ready he wonders if we got robbed... He may have just said that.

3. Laundry
The laundry may pile up in our laundry basket occasionally. I don't mind doing laundry but I don't do the whole separating thing, except for towels... Everything usually gets thrown in the washer then the dryer (and sometimes forgotten). The important part here is folding and putting away. If you iron/steam his clothes without him asking, you may be in luck for a massage or foot rub later on.

What would you add to the list?


  1. Hahaha, I love the wondering if you got robbed when the counters are clean etc. That's too funny.

  2. Dude. This totally sounds like a 50s wife manual!! 1. Home cooked meal from me is not exactly what my man wants, unless he wants food poisoning or a half burnt down kitchen. 2. Clean? What's that? Lol and 3. Laundry gets done but that's both our job so that's just equal ground lol. I mean I am all for pleasing my hubby, but I don't think he really cares if the chores are done or not lol, we just do them together.

  3. It's not meant as an every day guide.. more of a once in a while. It's showing from the guys perspective what they appreciate without being asked every now and then.
