34. No Kids Allowed

Bedroom Eyes

34. No Kids Allowed

Make your room a no-kid zone

For those of you without kids this is going to be easy as pie. For those of you with kids, this may sound a little harsh, especially if your room is your children's second bedroom. In order to have a better sex life you need to take a step away from every day life and focus on each other. 

When you have children you find yourselves immersed in a life that soon seems to be run by those little kids you adore. They take over the house, over your sleep, and over your free time. Before you know it there isn't a space in the house that isn't consumed by your children. As parents you need to hold onto your relationship and set boundaries for your children, allowing them to see that your relationship is a priority. By loving each other above all else you will find that this is one of the best examples and lessons you can teach your kids. Focusing on each other will also help to keep your love life thriving! 

Show your kids that you love each other and need daddy and mommy time by creating a space in your home that is for adult-only activities. A convenient room for this space is your bedroom. Once your kids learn that your room is off-limits you will be more likely to have time and space to yourselves on a regular basis. Your bedroom will become a room that is only about the two of you and will become a haven where you can sneak away for tons of naughty uninterrupted adult time!!!

Fight For Your Love

13.  Opposite Strengths

Take a moment to do this little exercise.  Grab a piece of paper and a pen.  Fold your paper in half.  On one side write your name on the other your spouses.   Spend 5 minutes writing their strengths on their section and yours on your section.

Was it easier to think of their strengths then yours?  Did you feel like you could go continue writing for another 30 minutes?  Are you amazed at how wonderful your spouse is?

If you are like most couples the two of you have opposite strengths and weaknesses.  As a couple your differences compliment each other. What you falter in, your spouse can make up.  Take time this week to appreciate your spouse's strengths and recognize how their strengths overcome your weaknesses.

33.  Caresses and Tugs

Women try this little trick the next time you find yourself making love doggy style.  Reach between your legs and caress your mans testies and perineum.  Tug on his testies every now and then to add a little spice.  Tease him and keep him guessing as to what you're going to do next.  Be careful though, this is sure to send him over the top quicker then you might want.  So time this extra play accordingly!

Spring Date Night: Plant a Garden

Spring Date Night:  Plant A Garden
Cost: $20-$100
Perks:  Get a little dirty, sweat a little, and make something grow!

This is our very fist garden at my in-laws.
 We lived right down the block so
taking care of our garden was doable.
My hubby didn't believe it, but it's true girls can till too!!!  Watch out!!!
We started with plants for our first
go around.  This made me feel like we
were ahead of the game and had a decent

This is garden number 2 for us.  This is
in our very own backyard, yay!!! What
you don't see is a huge pile of rocks,
weeds, old plants, and bricks.  Sadly, I
took this picture once we had removed
the huge pile of mess!!!  You can see
we still had a lot of work ahead of us
before we could even think of planting!
Planting a garden is a great adventure to try at least once with your spouse.  Start your garden soon and before you know it you will be eating yummy salads, grilled vegetables, and scrumptious desserts all from your garden.  Be prepared to spend quality time together in your garden all summer long.  Don't be scared, the work is fun when you do it side by side!  If you've never done it, the web is full of useful tips and tricks to help you get started.  If you have planted before you know the benefits of growing your own vegetables and fruits!

This year we started with seeds, because we wanted to be adventurous, lol.  No green sprouts just rows of dirt, which is not as fulfilling as starting with plants.  I'm really, really hoping something grows in our little garden!  Cross your fingers for us!!!  

If you have any spring date ideas please share them.  Spring is the time to fall in love all over again and again! We love all the creative ideas we can get!!!

Secret 18. He's Vested in You

Secret 18. He's Vested in You

Most men realize there's a lot to lose if a long-term relationship goes sour -- not just each other's company, but the entire life you've built together. If you're willing to work to strengthen your marriage, chances are your man will be, too.

Secret 17. Men May Stray When Needs Aren't Met

Secret 17. Men May Stray When Needs Aren't Met

If a man doesn't feel loved and appreciated in his relationship, he may turn elsewhere for satisfaction. For one man, that may mean burying himself in work. Another may develop a fixation on sports or video games. And some men cheat. To avoid this, partners need to work together to meet each other's needs.

Secret 16. Guys Get Performance Anxiety

Secret 16. Guys Get Performance Anxiety
Most men get performance anxiety on occasion, especially as they age. Your guy may worry about his physique, technique, and stamina. If you can help him learn to relax and stay focused on the pleasures of the moment, sex will become less stressful.

Secret 15. Men Like Pleasing Their Partner

Secret 15. Men Like Pleasing Their Partner

Your pleasure is important to your man. But he won't know what you want unless you tell him. Too many women feel uncomfortable talking about what they like and don't like. If you can tell him clearly in a way that doesn't bruise his ego, he'll listen. Because he knows he'll feel good if you feel good.

Secret 14. Guys Aren't Always Up for Sex

Secret 14. Guys Aren't Always Up for Sex

Men, much to many women's surprise, aren't always in the mood for sex. Just like women, men are often stressed by the demands of work, family, and paying the bills. And stress is a big libido crusher. When a guy says, "not tonight," it doesn't mean he's lost interest in you. He just means he doesn't want to have sex right then.

Secret 13. He Likes It When You Initiate Sex

Secret 13. He Likes It When You Initiate Sex

Most guys feel as though they're the ones who always initiate sex. But they also like to be pursued and wish their partner would take the lead more often. Don't be shy about letting your guy know you're in the mood. Initiating sex some of the time may lead to a higher level of satisfaction for both of you.

Secret 12. Men Find Sex Significant

Secret 12. Men Find Sex Significant

It's a myth that most men think sex is just sex. For many, sex is a very important act between two committed people. And just like most women, men find sexual intimacy to be most satisfying in the context of a committed relationship. One reason is that long-term partners know how to please one another better than strangers do.

Secret 11. Men Think About Sex ... A Lot

Secret 11. Men Think About Sex ... A Lot

OK, so maybe this one is no secret. The majority of men under age 60 think about sex at least once a day, compared with only a quarter of women. And that's not all. Men fantasize about sex nearly twice as often as women do, and their fantasies are much more varied. They also think more about casual sex than women do. But thinking is not the same as doing.


Secret 10. Men Respond to Appreciation

Secret 10.  Men Respond to Appreciation

Showing appreciation for your guy can make a big difference in the way he acts. Take parenting. Studies show that fathers are more involved in care-giving when their wives value their involvement and see them as competent.

Secret 09. Men Don't Pick Up On Subtle Cues

Secret 09.  Men Don't Pick Up On Subtle Cues

Men are more likely to miss subtle signals like tone of voice or facial expressions. And they are especially likely to miss sadness on a woman's face. If you want to make sure your guy gets the message, be direct.

Secret 08. Men Let Go Faster Than Women

Secret 08.  Men Let Go Faster Than Women

Women tend to remember negative experiences longer and may have lingering feelings of stress, anxiety, or sadness. In contrast, men are less likely to dwell on unpleasant events and tend to move on more quickly. So while you may still want to talk about last night's argument, your guy may have already forgotten about it.

Secret 07. Men Learn From Their Fathers

Secret 07.  Men Learn From Their Fathers

If you want to know how a man will act in a relationship, get to know his dad. Some say men learn about their relationship role by watching and listening to their fathers. How they are with each other and how the father relates to the mother can predict how a man will relate to his wife.

Secret 06. Men Need Time for Themselves

Secret 06. Men Need Time for Themselves

While shared activities are important, men also need time for themselves. Whether your guy enjoys golf, gardening, or working out at the gym, encourage him to pursue his hobbies, while you make time for your own. When both partners have space to nurture their individuality, they have more to give to each other.

Secret 05. Shared Activity Forms Bonds

Secret 05. Shared Activities Form Bonds

Men strengthen their relationships primarily through shared activities more than by sharing thoughts or feelings. For many men, activities like sports and sex make them feel closer to their partner.

Secret 04. He Really Is Listening

Secret 04.  He Really Is Listening

When you're listening to someone talk, you probably pipe in with a "yes" or "I see" every now and then. It's your way of saying, "I'm listening." But some guys don't do this. Just because a man isn't saying anything doesn't mean he's not listening. He may prefer to listen quietly and think about what you're saying.

Secret 03. Men Take Commitment Seriously

Secret 03.  Men Take Commitment Seriously

Men have a reputation for being afraid to commit. But the evidence suggests men take marriage seriously. They may take longer to commit because they want to make sure they are onboard for good. In a survey of currently married men, 90% say they would marry the same woman again.

Secret 02. Men Say "I Love You" With Actions

Secret 02.  Men Say "I Love You" With Actions

Some men prefer to express their feelings through actions rather than words. Your guy may say "I love you" by fixing things around the house, tidying up the yard, or even taking out the trash -- anything that makes your world a better place.

Secret 01. Talk About Feelings

How many of you gals think that your man is mysterious and sometimes hard to figure out???    If this is you, then stay tuned throughout the day because I'm sharing secrets that your guy wish you knew.  These answers to all our deep down questions come from WebMd.

Secret 01.

It may be easier for your man to talk about feelings indirectly. Ask what he'd do during a romantic weekend. Or what he thought the first time he met you. His answers will reveal how he feels and bring you closer.

10.  Stomp in Puddles
