Happy Birthday to my Husband, Jerry Gaston, Jr.

Today I celebrate the birth of my husband, my best friend, the father of our son, and so much more, Jerry Gaston, Jr. He has officially climbed over one milestone (turning 30) and now he is 31 lol! You have accomplished a lot in life and there is so much more to come. Continue to let God lead you, guide you, and use you. You are a blessing to your family and that is all that matters! 

Again, I celebrate you in a mighty way today and I love you "Dr" Jerry Gaston, Jr!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is the expression of gratitude, especially to God. This is the time of the year that we spend with family and friends giving thanks to God for them and other things that surrounds our life. So many things have taken place this year before today and for us to all be alive and well and able to celebrate today, is truly a blessing. Take the time today to really show your love and appreciation to God and to your family members. You never know when they won't be here any more. Enjoy today! Don't worry about what happened yesterday! Tomorrow is not promised! Live for today! Today is the day when America gives extra "thanks" to God for the many great things that he has done. Honestly, everyday is a day of Thanksgiving, we just do it a little extra on today :-)!

Enjoy the food. Enjoy the football games. Enjoy the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. Enjoy the company. Enjoy the time. Enjoy LIFE in ITSELF!!!

From my family to yours, wishing you a BLESSED THANKSGIVING!

Getting ready for the holidays...

YES they are FINALLY HERE...the THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS holiday season!! Can you tell that I am excited?!?!? I absolutely love this time of the year. My household is exciting this year. My husband and son deer hunts and I get the house prepared for the decoration. I mean hey they provide the meat and I provide the comfort!! lol

Just a few of things I prepare for my preparation of the holidays: (lol Yes I am an organizing freak)

1) Go through each room and decide how you want each room to look.  If you have a set theme or how you want your decorations to look, you would pretty much You don't one theme in one room and something different in another room. Let's not confused the guests better yet, the people that live in the home! :-)

2) Lights, lights, and more lights!!! Yes! I like to have lights on the mantle, around the border going into the next room, in the centerpieces and in the bedroom! I will tell you about the lights in the bedroom later :-). Don't over power one extension cord and/or outlet with several cords of lights. Take advantage of a power surge cord or the outlets that have multiples that you can plug into one. You also don't want to increase your power bill. So look for the energy saver items. Heyyyy, there are small ways you can still save during the holidays and you all know that I am about SAVING especially MONEY! :-)

3) Decide if you are going to post any holiday gatherings. You control that. Don't let anyone force that on you. If you choose to make one, download and print the Holiday To Do List  from the printables page and it can help you out. Now, don't over due the list to wear yourself out. If you are like me you hate to forget something important and then you are beating yourself up because you forgot it and now you are all over the place panicking. Yes that is me. That is why I have paper every where to write down things now. The mind is not what it use to be. lol. Make sure you add on that list an item to help you relax and clear your mind in the midst of preparing for the holiday gathering.

4) Room deodorizers. Now, my personal favorite aroma for this time of year is a pumpkin/vanilla spice (for Thanksgiving) and an apple crisp (for Christmas). Don't get something that will burn your nose and eyes or better yet, make you or your guests sneeze a lot! If you do plug in (Glade, Air Wick) make sure you get the same throughout each room. What I personally do with my plug ins is I have one in my living room, my kitchen, all the bedrooms, and the bathroom. If you have the same scent in each room, once you clean, leave the doors open and watch how the aroma catch each other as if they are in all of the rooms. If you burn candles, space those out as well and make sure they are in an area of where the fire is not going to catch something and burn it. We are already focus on not burning the food. Of course we don't want to burn down the house from a scented candle.

5) Food storage! I hate pilling all of the pots and pans in the refrigerator just to store food! Noooooo! Get the tupperware and put it in there! I personally love this company's product, Ziplock and I have tons of it. Hey you can never get enough of food storage containers. Use these for storing your holiday left overs and you will love the fact of quality of storage and how easy it is.

Last but not least,

6) Fresh flowers! I love fresh flowers. I have a bunch right now on my living room table. They just make the room look so bright and beautiful. You pick the right color and watch how it lightens up the room.

It's so much more that you can add on the list. But this should give you a head start. My list is made and I am starting now checking things off and I am very comfortable with it.

Off we go to the cheerful season!!!!

Until next time, SMOOCHES!

Voting Day is here!

Today is the mid-term election day. It doesn't matter the party you vote for, just make sure you get out and vote. Forget about party purposes, it matters about the person and if you really think they can get the job done. It also doesn't matter about color. This nation is so based on color and party, they forget the main point...vote for what is right! 

If you don't know where your voting poll is, contact your local revenue office. If you don't have a ride, contact the local bus station for routes or carpool with someone. If you have to work, as your employer can you leave to go vote and go right back to your job ;-)! Don't come up with an excuse of why you can't you vote because you really would not have a right to say anything against the results. Please make your voice heard and I promise you, you won't be disappointed. 

GET UP! 
GET OUT! 
GO VOTE! 

Until next time...SMOOCHES!

Being married...

Hello all! I know it has been a while since my last post. But I'm back!

Lately, I have been hearing this phrase a lot..."how is it being married?" So I thought that I would speak on this subject briefly.  Being married is 1) a blessing from God 2) what you make of it 3) be honest and committed. You can add in more if you would like but I want to just touch on these 3 matters because it is very important in a marriage.

A blessing from God. 
Now some can get mad at me because I'm saying this and I really don't care but marriage is between a MAN & a WOMAN! God ordained marriage and before God marriage is honorable. Matthew 19 verse 4 says "for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife...". Wives, it also gives instructions for us to be submissive unto our husbands (which I still have trouble with but I am working on it; I have gotten a whole lot better). Ephesians 5 verse 22 says "wives be submissive unto your own husband". There are many other verses that is literally a guide to a great marriage. These are simple instructions that come from God not man.

What you make of it
When I say that I mean you can't make your marriage be like someone else's.  What works for them may not work for you. I have said this in many previous posts but I don't think some people have figured that out. No one knows what really goes on in the marriage except the HUSBAND AND WIFE. So I really doubt the things they have came easy. Just like you put effort into your job, put effort into your marriage.  You worked hard to plan for the ceremony. Work hard for the actual marriage. We all put so much effort in having a glamorous ceremony and there is nothing wrong with that. But you do know the marriage actually starts after the ceremony. Let Johnny and Jada be happy in their marriage and you be happy in yours just like it is. Don't try to be like anyone else.

Be honest and committed
A lot of people think that cheating is only done physically.  Can I burst your bubble? No! Cheating can come in a mental mindset as well. What do I mean? I'm glad you asked.  When you are constantly thinking of someone else and reflecting on that, then that is cheating. You can sit right there in front of your spouse and talk to them, etc. But when your mind is some where else, that doesn't help your marriage. You committed to this thing when you got married, you might as well continue to stay committed to it. No marriage is perfect but you can strive to have a good one.  Also when you lie about something, the truth will sooner or later come to light. The fact that you want to go out of town to meet someone and use an excuse about it and make people believe you, is not fair to your spouse nor your family. Secrets are poisoning to a marriage. Why keep secrets and be married?

So overall, marriage is GREAT and FUN! It comes with great benefits and you have a life long partner to experience life with.  Who doesn't want that? There will be good and bad days but you have that being single. So allow God to come in and be the foundation of your marriage; only you can decide on how your marriage is going to be; and be honest and stay in the race!

Now go love on your spouse!

Until next time...SMOOCHES!

Be CONTENT in your marriage.

In today's society, so many married ladies surround themselves with other married women.  They are either the same age, agree on a lot of things, older in age, and/or have been married for several years. I will agree with all of that because I do the same thing. In my years of being married, one thing I have learned is being content in my own marriage. Why be content? Well I'm glad you asked.  Everybody's marriage IS NOT THE SAME! You are your own individual self as well as your husband. You can't compare your marriage with the other person because you're not them.  So many marriages fell because the wife or the husband try to do things they see done either on television or what other married couples are doing. 

Here's a little example:
David and Donna have been married only for two years. They just moved into a new subdivision six months ago and became great friends with John and Jodi. They lived two doors down from them. Well Jodi has a fancy car and she is a stay at home mom.  John and David are in the same type of career field but work at two different companies. Donna is an Legal Assistant at a well known law firm but she is tired of her job. David and Donna notice all of the nice things John and Jodi have in their home and the exciting things they get to do. Donna mentions  to David that she wants to be a stay at home mom just like Jodi. They then argue about the fact and then David yells out well I want my wife to take care of me and cook for me and do her wifely duties.  Well, I guess you can see where this is going.

My solution is this. Just because they have it doesn't mean that you all can have it either. Both parties have to SIT DOWN and COME TOGETHER on what works for the marriage. David and Donna have been married for a much shorter time frame John and Jodi has been.  John and Jodi have been married 8 years. Things are much different in each of their marriage. It was not right for Donna to approach David with such because little do they know, Jodi has a disability that causes her not to work.  Before the disability became a serious issue, she was an employee for an accounting firm. With the money they received from her 401K and to cut back on some lavish living, they budget very well and talk to each other before making a big decision in their marriage.  It is a true saying to not judge a book by its cover. 

Ladies, stand tall for your marriage and BE CONTENT! Look around at the things that God has blessed you with.  Don't compare to other marriages and don't think you are better than other marriages. EVERYBODY STRUGGLES! Whether you have one dollar or one million dollars in the bank, EVERYBODY STRUGGLE! It may not be at the same time, but it's coming. Know your worth in your marriage. Don't sit back and complain because it could be a whole lot worse off. Be proud of what you have and your marriage.  If you stay on a busy street instead of in a subdivision, be proud of that busy street. Your time is coming. If you drive a 1998 Toyota Corolla, be proud of it. Your time is coming for an upgrade. If you have basic cable and basic cell phone service, be PROUD. If you are comfortable with sitting down every month to pay your bills and still smile, you're off to a great start! You will be amazed at how many couples that don't have much, stay married the longest and the ones that have the fancy house, car, and job, can't enjoy their marriage. Now by no means am I coming down on anyone or their marriage. You make it work for you and yours. If it takes the lavish life to make you happy, then enjoy that life style. But don't loose your mind and self respect for them. 

Now first tell God thank you for this blessing and then go look into your spouse's eyes and tell them thank you for all that you do for this marriage and family.  Remember, be CONTENT in your marriage and watch how easy it goes! 



SMOOCHES!

M.A.R.R.I.A.G.E...what does it mean?

Just a little simple acronym for a marriage

M - Magical. The way you feel when you're with your spouse. The electricity that flows between you two is magical and it can't be measured by anything. 

A - Awesome. Isn't it just awesome to have a life partner that you enjoy being around and love so much? It surely is! 

R - Remember. Remember your first date? Your first kiss! The first time you held hands? The first time you said "I love you" to each other? You get my drift...

R - Romance. No matter how you both get, the romance should never leave the marriage. It's what keep the fire going. 

I - Intimacy. This goes with Romance. You will be amazed at how many marriages forget this. Think about this: if you don't, somebody will. We can't help the fact that God made men addicted to sex...lol but oh so true. 

A - Avoid. Odd word but a powerful one in a marriage. Avoid arguing in front of the children. Avoid belittling each other. Avoid physical and mental abuse to each other. Avoid disrespecting each other. I can go on but you get the point. 

G - Growing. You are suppose to grow with each other not separately. What's his is yours and what's yours is his. You grow for the better not the worse. St down and talk about goals, dreams, accomplishments, ad ways to better the family. 

E - Everlasting. Make your love in your marriage everlasting. The kind of love that
won't run out. The kind of love that shines on the inside and outside. 

Apply this everyday and watch the change! 

Smooches!!
xoxo

It's our Anniversary!

On this day 4 years ago, I married the person that God had designed for me! It has been a true blessing to be married and to be married to a God fearing man.  He came right in being a great friend, a great father to my son, and a great provider. We have truly been blessed in our marriage because we allow God to our guide in our marriage and our family.  My marriage actually inspired me to come up with this blog "The Journey of Being a Wife" and also we get a lot of couples (old and new) saying that we inspire them through our marriage and that is truly a blessing.

Well not going to stay on here long...gotta go and celebrate!!! 

Smooches

Happy 2nd Blogiversary!!

Happy 2nd
Blogiversary


Happy 2nd year Blogiversary to me!  I’m so excited.  Ok yes I know I am posting this late but I had a good reason to. Lately I have had so much going on in my life; I put blogging at the end of my “To Do List”.  By the time I had gotten to the end of the list, I was extremely tired and ready for bed.  I put it off so much, that it not only because days but weeks before I even did a post.  Now I would do my regular posts regarding “Happy Anniversary month” & “Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials” but that was it.  Then to be honest, I didn’t feel like doing that but I wanted to keep my blog live.  I would even skip posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. BUT, thanks to my loving husband, son, and mother in helping with my new project, the renovation of my office.  Now you would think it would have taken me all week, but honestly, it only took a couple of days in spite of the Independence Day holiday coming in…lol. But there have been good days and bad days.  But I will touch on those topics later. 


What have I learned about blogging? I have learned so much I don’t think I have time to go through everything.  But I will tell you this.  I have learned that if you want something badly, you have to work hard for it.  This blog is my baby and I get to have you as my “blog family” to explore with me regarding my journey of being a wife and prayerfully help others along the way.  Also I have learned to ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SPELLING!!! Boy I have posted some things and as I was reading them, I said whoa…did I do that (in my Steve Urkel voice) lol. I did go back to correct it but it was the matter of the fact. I have a case of O.C.D. and sometimes you will see that in my posts.

Now there are still some things that I am learning as I go along.  Since I am a blogger, I do read other blogs. As I look at their pages, posts, and ideas, I think to myself that one day I will have something fancy like this.  I understand that this doesn’t happen overnight and there is some sincere dedication to it.  I communicate with other bloggers and we have fun learning together.  I have some dear friends that give me ideas on new post ideas, crafts, discussions, etc. That really means a lot to me that my friends want to see me do well with my blog!  I have been amazed at how some of my posts, crafts, printables, and recipes have helped others.  Strangely, I get my ideas for everyday conversations and situations and just talk about it.  But one thing I won’t do is tell you to try something that I haven’t tried before.  That wouldn’t be fair and I’m just not that type of person. I mean honestly how would I say try this love coupon on your hubby if I haven’t tried it, NOT FAIR!

Well, it’s getting late and I have to get in bed for early morning service at church tomorrow.  Stay tuned to the blog site and daily posts.  Who knows you might just see something that will really catch your eye!

SMOOCHES!

Acknowledgments!
I just want to say thank you to God the Almighty for giving me the opportunity to share with others.  A special thanks to my husband that stands by me and support me in everything I do, even if I fall flat on my face in doing so…lol. Thanks to our son, Ken, for his support as well.  Thanks to my dear family and friends that have supported me in doing this blog!

Couple Photo Challenge - Day 7 SHOPPING




Now ladies, we all know that we love to shop and sometimes we will do the shopping by ourselves.  Well, have you ever suggested your husband to go with you? If no, then you should.  It’s fun and enjoyable.  Now don’t take him into a store where you are going to be in for hours and try on almost everything in the store. Make a deal with him. Go in a store that he enjoys going into and take him in a store you enjoy.  Then when you all leave out of the store, make sure you HOLD EACH OTHER HANDS!!!

Trust me, its fun!

Enjoy!

Homebound Date Night Ideas!

Ok, so we are ALL tight on money now days? The idea of going out for a nice evening is at the bottom of your list because the money just isn't there.  Wait…you still have a home that you can enjoy with both your husband and kid(s).  Here are a couple of ideas that may help you in some kind of way:

For you and him.
Cook a nice dinner together.  It doesn't have to be steak or something off the grill.  You can do seafood, chicken, beef, or even a homemade pizza together. The idea is that you and your husband is making dinner together and making use of the time together.  If you want to jazz it up a little, take out the bottle of wine, two glasses, and the iPad/iPod and turn on some nice music to listen to while making dinner. Trust me, you will enjoy!

For you, him, and the kids.
Choose a meal that everyone enjoys and include the kids in helping prepare dinner and the table. This is a great idea for quality family time together. Have the kid’s make the simple items that mean a lot like set the table, fold the napkins, fill the ice bucket, etc. Trust me, the smiles that float around the room will set the atmosphere for a GREAT FAMILY DINNER!

For you and him.
A nice movie.  Instead of paying $8.75 for a movie, take use of those extra channels that you have with your current cable/satellite company or go to Red Box and pay $1.25 for something you both would like.  Ladies, if you choose a “chick flick” make sure he wants to see it as well.  Also, if he chooses an action pack movie, just get ready for some action. This is something for the both of you to enjoy together, not separately.  Grab the wine, a blanket, cuddle up, and turn the lights off and ENJOY THE MOVIE.

For you, him, and the kids.
GET OUT THE POPCORN! Get a great family movie that everyone can enjoy and laugh! Let the kids picks the movie. Remember this is a family movie night.  Try to eliminate movies that have profanity and nudity scenes in.  You don’t want the kids feeling uncomfortable and you definitely don’t want to fast forward anything in the movie!

For you and him.
SPA night!!! Get out the candles, the bubble bath, the massaging oil/lotion, the robes, and the iPad/iPod.  Prepare your bed as it is a massage table and sit the oil/lotion next to the bed (so you won’t have to walk across the room to get them). Have the candles set up in the bedroom and bathroom. Have two glasses of wine and rose pedals scattered across the bathroom.  You can even have a nice lavender scent floating around in the room and the bubbles on top of some nice and warm bath water. Have fun!

For you, him, and the kids.
Grab some scissors, glue, glitter, construction paper, and let’s make something.  Make something together and frame it! Sit at the table and come up with some ideas of something that you all can make together or a theme of something and each of you design it based on that theme.  Frame it and hang it up in the house that you all can see on a regular basis and remember that night!! Trust me, it means something and everyone will enjoy!

These are just a couple of ideas for you to do at home.  You have a home and a family…make use of it. Enjoy! 



Smooches!

Spring Forward....March 9, 2014


Time to Spring Forward! Yes that means we lose an hour of time but gain longer evenings before the night hours come to.  Sunday, March 9, 2014…don’t forget to set your clocks an hour ahead.  If you are surrounded by technology as much as I am, make sure the Auto Date and Time is set correctly so you won’t be late getting to where you need to go on Sunday morning!

Make your marriage a PRIORITY!!

Being HIS side chick!


Sooooo, I think this is a very sensitive subject to every woman....the side chick! There are a couple of shows that are on television that highlights the woman being the side chick (i.e. Scandal, Being Mary Jane, etc).  No woman wants to find out that her husband has a side chick. Urban Dictionary defines the side chick as the other woman; also known as the mistress; a female that is neither a male’s wife nor girlfriend who has relations with the male while he is in another relationship. Now I will admit, most women have been the side chick before. Guess what you can again but only inside your marriage.  That means only to your husband. Ephesians 5:22 says wives submit yourself to your OWN husband. How do you do this? I'm glad you asked. Now every and yes I said every woman has multiple personalities. So why not apply that to your marriage? How? Ok, here goes...

1) Be the wife in the day time BUT send little sexy messages during the day. Now make sure you send it to the right person. Yes you may have a flashback before you got married...lol ok let me be serious.

2) When you talk to him, change your tone. Put a little sexy in your voice. *by this time if the both of you have 8-5 jobs, make him excited about coming home*

3) Prepare dinner. If it's possible see if you can turn it into a candle light dinner. If you have kids, don't worry about the candles, put the candles in the bedroom and/or the bathroom. *now if he volunteers to help you clean up, then guess what, you have already made a difference! HA!!*

4) Now my household we don't like to have mobile devices out during dinner but if your household is different, then continue to send him the text messages. *prepare him for the night*

5) Give him the eye!!! Every man and I mean every man knows the look! Trust me ladies, it works! Hahaha

6) During dinner time, sit by him at the table and take your foot and go up and down softly on his leg. Trust me, it’s worth it!


Ok so after dinner, I'm not sure what your normal routine is but make sure you keep him wondering. If you stop, then he is going to wonder. Now by now, you should be getting ready to turn in for the night.

Ok, adult play time. You then are now the side chick. You have a different name, different personality, and a different look. This is where you then ask him what he wants. Why are you asking him because that is what the other woman does? The men pretty much tells and shows the other woman want he wants which is 95% of what the wife WON'T or DON'T do. 

Now I can't tell you what to specifically do to your husband because every man is different sexually but all men loves SEX! Give him a massage, a warm bubble bath (that you two take together), lotion/oil him down, and so much more.  So you pretty much get the idea of where this is going.  If you want to take it to the next level in just totally pleasing him, ask him for one of his fantasies.  But if you don't want to make into an intimate matter, just make sure you take time out with him.  We always want them to take time out of their schedule to be with us and do things for and with us but do we do the same for him. Ladies we must learn and start taking care of our husband.  All the "side chick" is doing is things that he wants and what you're not doing at home.  These types of women prey on married men and can't wait to find out that something is going sour in their marriage.

As I stated, you be the SIDE CHICK! Start putting him first again and watch how things get better!! Take care of your man. Make your marriage excited!! The same thing you did to get him, trust me, you have to continue to do it to keep him!


Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge!


SMOOCHES!!!
