I wish we could sit and have a latte together, and chat about life, our families and the challenges and joys we are both facing.

But today, I guess this will have to do.  After getting a great response from my post about 3 easy ways to upgrade your marriage, I thought I’d continue our conversation with a few more ideas on spicing things up.

So, let’s jump right in and talk about seducing our husbands, shall we?


We all crave being connected to our husbands, yet in our efforts to win their hearts, we sometimes go about things the wrong way.  Do you ever feel like there could be more “oneness” in your marriage than you have?

Here are 3 ideas that may help you build more intimacy in your marriage.

1. Tell him how thankful you are for how hard he works and provides. (Don’t nag him about all the things he’s doing wrong, ie, how he’s withdrawn after work, how he loads the dishwasher backwards or when he puts the wrong pjs on the kids).

2. Can’t believe I’m going to say this…I’m blushing as I type…BUT IT MUST BE SAID…Plan a few times a week to lead him “to the bedroom”.  I know we’re tired and often “not in the mood”, but sometimes we just have to let our actions lead us to our feelings.  Something tells me you won’t regret it 😉 (Don’t act inconvenienced or frustrated by his sexual advances- it’s his way of expressing love to you.)   ‘Nuf said.

3. Rent a movie he will love, and that morning, tell him that you can’t wait to watch a guy flick with him.  (Don’t ignore his hobbies.  Learn to enjoy what he enjoys, and you’ll become his favorite play-mate.  Quality time with our men…isn’t that what we crave after-all?)

How do these simple ideas sound to you?

Let’s continue with this “latte conversation”… I’d really love to hear your thoughts!
