Husbands need respect

For those of us who didn't have good role models for marriage when growing up, or who haven't a clue about how to respect our own husbands, here's a list of 101 Ways To Respect Your Husband that will give us a few ideas.


Staying warm in the Valentine's Weekend Arctic Blast

Winter Weekend

This weekend most of New England is shivering under an Arctic Blast that has wind chills down to between thirty and fifty below zero. That's dangerously cold, even for those of us who've lived here all our lives.

It's  a good day to stay in and stay warm.

Here's a blog post I really enjoyed, on 4 ways to love your husband when he's being unlovable.


I'd rather have roses...

They didn't slouch around in sweats and t-shirts


People today might tend to chuckle at these housewives, but when you think about it, housewives back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s didn't usually slouch around in a pair of sweats and a t-shirt, even when they were doing heavy house-cleaning projects.
A homemaker would usually wear a "house dress" and an apron, or a pair of capris with a blouse, and often she tied her hair up with a scarf while she was cleaning, but she didn't dress in a careless or grungy manner. 
How about us? Do we slap on any ol' thing as we head into the day, or do we take the time to make ourselves presentable, even if we don't wear the "uniform" of the housewife of the 1950s?

This set by Bellamimi1207 is titled "Feminine And Sweet", and I like how a contemporary light pink dress is paired with accessories and decor that have a decidedly old-fashioned or nostalgic feel to them.
