Make Out Monday – Something from this Century

I know, I am an Oldies Fan.  It is the music of my childhood, the music that speaks to me the clearest, and it is the music I know the best. (Well, with the possible exception of worship music, but I can’t see posting a steady diet of worship music to Make Out Monday – not that it would be wrong for a married couple to make out to worship music – God did create sex after all and is glad when you make out.)  Wow, what a turkey trot that was, sorry!  Anyway, I thought I would post some newer music this week and it led me to listening to some Adele, I find her voice very haunting and I thought you might like to cuddle up with your sweetie tonight and check out these offerings from her!

Adele – Lovesong

Adele – Set Fire to the Rain Lyrics

Adele – Make You Feel My Love

Advice for Guys – Again

businessman with hand on chinEvery now and then I take a post and send a little advice to the guys.  (I know there are a few guys who read RHW and I would guess that if you ladies like what I write for the guys, you might be sending your hubby this post.)

Okay Guys, Here it is:

telecharger-magic-love-original-335Be Romantic – Let’s face it guys, most women like romance.  They enjoy a touch of romance in their life.  It does not have to be every day, but we should do something at least every month. (Hey, that is just 12 times a year, not too much to ask in the way of an investment.)  BTW – Valentine’s day, Mother’s day, her Birthday, and your anniversary do not count.  You are expected to do something nice on those days.  If you need help remembering those days get a good calendar app for your phone, it is worth the investment!  I would also recommend you keep track of when you do something romantic for her, that way you will not forget.

Some romantic ideas:

  • Flowers – Always a good idea.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money; the Grocery Stores sell them for less than $10.  Also, if you can find wild flowers along the road, while they don’t last as long, she will still love the fact that you thought enough of her to stop and get them.
  • Cards & Notes – Again, something she will love and something you don’t have to spend much on.  My wife likes the cards I make on the computer as much or more than the ones that I buy.
  • Balloons – If you can do balloon animals great, if you can’t no problem, the dollar store has Mylar balloons with cool messages or graphics on it for a, what else at the dollar store, a dollar.
  • Candles – You can transform a room from normal to romantic with a few candles.  I once bought 24 votive candles in glass holders for about $8.  I put them in the room, light them all, some soft music, and brought Mrs. Rock in, she loved it.  I can use them a couple of more times.

Be Thoughtful – This is similar to romantic, but it is a little different in the application of it:  Here are some thoughtful ideas:

  • Leave Notes on Mirrors: Some different ways –
    • Get some anti-fog product (RainX makes one) and put it on the bathroom mirror, but use it to write a simple message like, “I Love You!”  Or “You Rock My World!”  She will see it every time she showers.
    • Write on the mirrors with a Sharpie or a Dry Erase marker.  You can write a lot this way, a long message.  Do it on the edges so she can still use the center of the mirror for what she needs.  The marker will come off with either glass cleaner or alcohol.
    • Behind the Mirror:  We are repainting right now, I have to take down the mirror and rehang it.  Before I rehang it, I am going to write a long note to here in sharpie and the mirror up over it.  I am going to take a picture of it, so she knows it is there.  I want her to know that I will be for years; maybe not being found for decades, yet that declaration of my love for her will be there. (I will put the text at the end of this post)
  • Paint a Note on a Wall:  Okay, it is a lot safer doing this when you know that you are going to paint the wall soon anyway. I painted a couple of things on the wall of the hallway.  One was a heart and another I wrote out, “I Love Mrs. Rock!”  Even if it just for a few days, she sees that every time she goes down that hall and knows I care for her.  (I am thinking about painting that back on there even after we paint the hallway, but I know she would worry that it would devalue house.)24132_1245401027714_1610041957_538475_690893_n
  • Get Some Vinyl Romantic Sayings: Either by some pre-made saying such as the one in the picture here or better yet, check with custom sign makers in town and have something make that is special to the two of you.
  • Make a Book:  With the software out there and the templates available to you, you can make wonderful memory books for you wife.  They can be full of pictures; you can do text with the pictures, even full pages of text.  I have done two or three of these for my wife.  I normally use MS Publisher, make the page the way I want it to look with pictures and text and then save the page as a JPEG.  I then put it in the photo book.  Once I have created the pages, I can do the rest on line and it will ship to your home (or work). The first time I did this, she cried when I gave it to her!

Of course there is the old standby, a romantic dinner out for just the two of you.  Hey, there is nothing wrong with this one, just make sure it is not your only trick and make sure that if you are doing this, that you help take care of the details your need to care for at home, like a babysitter for the kids and dinner for the kids.

Guys, take some time, invest a little effort and an few dollars into your marriage and it will pay off big dividends for you.  It will make her happy and it will help to bring you closer together.  The truth is, it does not matter too much what you do, it matters that you are thoughtful, caring, and loving in what you do.  If you don’t like any of the ideas above, or don’t think your wife will like them, that is fine, come up with ones that you think she will like.  I know that Mrs. Rock does not want me to spend a lot of money on her, she likes it when I can do things that don’t cost much, I suspect that there are a lot of wives out there like that, it is not the amount you spend, it is your effort.

(What I am writing behind the mirror) Every time you look in this mirror, I want you to remember the person you see is the person I love most in the whole world.  I am glad that our lives are intertwined. Know this, that when we are not together I miss you and that I crave everything about you, from your smile, your voice, your eyes, your kiss, your thoughts, and feeling your body next to mine.  You are a part of me, just as I am a part of you!

Make Out Monday – 1/6/14

Wow, it is hard for me to believe that it is already 2014, but here we are.  I truly hope that you had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and New Year celebration.  I hope that you had some quality time with your husband.

Here is this Years First Installments for Make Out Monday!  Hope you enjoy!  By The Way – If you have any suggestions of great make out songs, please pass them my way.  I tend to pick oldies because it is what I know best, but I would love some newer music, so please message me if you have some ideas.

Today, both of the songs have a certain amount of sadness to them, which is not something I generally have as a part of Make Out Monday, but they both talk about love. (Check out the Bob Seger Version at the Bottom.)

Some Low Cost & No Cost Gifts for Him

If you are like many, if not most of the families out there, money is tight this holiday season.  You most likely want to give your husband a really nice gift, but you can’t justify spending money that you really don’t have. [Whatever you do, debt2please don’t be one of those families who puts so much on the credit card that you don’t get it paid off until September.]  Here are some gifts that you can give your husband that will really make him happy and he will love them, especially if you tell him you will do one of these for him a couple of times a month for the next year.

Strip_Tease_Sequence_9_by_AlwaysElev8edA Striptease: Every guy would love his wife doing this for him.  Pick a time when you know that you will have time alone.  Pick any room in the house that gives you privacy – There are several rooms in our house that this works in if the kids are all gone.  A couple things that will help: Find some music that you like and will help you relax and feel good dancing to.  Also, soft low light, (red lights or black lights are supposed to work well, I was thinking about a bunch of candles) it will make you more mysterious and he will love it still & it will help you not feel as self-conscious about your body.  If you want tips on how to do a strip, I know there are some Youtube videos about it, but I never watched them. (I started to watch them once, but decided after about a minute, I should not see them.)

A Lap Dance: I know, (well at least I think I know, my experience is TV shows – not cable ones even, and what a couple of friends told me), it is similar to a strip tease, but it will involve you getting closer and even sitting on his lap and grinding on top of him.  I think the clubs have rules that the customer cannot touch you, only you can touch them.  The truth is up can make up whatever rules you want and enforce them.  He will still win.  A couple of variations for both the strip tease, you could start with him dressed or undressed, or you could make stripping him a part of either show. Again, youtube has some videos & no, I did not even start to watch them, I just saw that they were available.

A Fantasy Night: Give him a night that he can pick any fantasy he has and you will help him act it out.  [Yes, set limits, like no pain or humiliation but make this fun for both of you, but be willing to stretch your limits a little.] Maybe do this a couple of nights and the second night it is your fantasy that is lived out.

Some Flirty – Sexy Pictures: No, I am not talking about nudes, I don’t thinkstrip_tease_00 tumblr_mxif2reQ0R1r3cwd7o1_500those are a good idea, I wrote about that a while back, you can read that post here; However, here are a couple of picture types that I think any husband would love to have from his wife.  These samples give you an idea of what I am thinking. Get one of your friends to help and you can do the same for her.

A Romantic Dinner for Two: Fix a nice dinner for him that he enjoys, have o_new-women-dresses-sexy-party-dress-cocktail-party-dress-ff96nice place setting, pretty table decorations, and img55840633candles.  Wear something that is stunning and maybe a little daring for dinner, after all it is just the two of you. Some variations: Fix just one plate and feed him and yourself at the same time.  Blind fold him before you feed him, have less clothes on when you take the blind fold off him than you had when you started.  I think you can probably provide a great dessert, but a little whip cream and chocolate may be fun also. (BTW – to keep this inexpensive, try a combination of your lingerie and other clothes you have, like a swimsuit top with a short skirt. What am I thinking, you ladies know more about this than me. I did find a couple of places that have cheap corsets and cheap body stockings.)

Spend Christmas Night Under the Tree Together: The quiet of the night, the lights on the trees, the sound of the fire place (If you are lucky enough to have one.)  It can be a very romantic setting. If you don’t have comfortable way to spend the night out there like an air mattress, spend an hour or so out there together cuddling, making out, whatever, it will be a nice way to finish what should be a wonderful day! (If company, travels etc. prevents you doing it Christmas night, pick another one, it is still nice.)

Some Fun Easy Ones:

  • Temporary Tattoos in very private spots (Here are some tats I found, most seem to be water proof and come off with oil.)
  • Fake Body Jewelry like the tats only with some bling. (A Couple of samples I found Click Here for one or Click Here another)
  • Shave yourself for him.  I know not all guys like this, but if you have never done it, I bet he would like to see it at least once.  [Addition from Robyn @  Up with Marriage To my sisters, I would suggest NOT shaving yourself!!! The pain of a 10-20 min Brazilian far outweighs a week and half of regrowth — far tooo itchy and the last thing you’ll want is more sex. Of course this could just be me. Also, hard wax is virtually painless. (and don’t forget to tell them to do up the backside ;) )]
  • A nice massage. Something most guys will take anytime and love it every time.  You can read my tips from my article – The Ultimate Massage

Next Week, More Gifts for Him, including some more traditional stocking stuffers and (hopefully) a free gift for you to share with him.

Make Out Monday: Country Flair

I would describe my musical tastes as eclectic. There are a lot of different types of music I enjoy, everything from Jazz to Hard Rock, Country to Classical, with a heavy dose of Christian music in the middle.

For this week’s Make Out Monday Videos, I was in the mood for a little country, hope you enjoy this week’s edition.

Faith Hill – Breathe

Blake Shelton – God Gave Me You
