Wife Extraordinaire!

Being married for the last two years has been absolutely AMAZING! In no way am I yet a wife extraoridnaire but I certainly plan on getting there!

Since my husband and I first discussed the topic of becoming married I have always taken my role as wife seriously and I have always wanted to put in all of the necesarry effort to make our marriage successful, fulfilling and of course fun!

One of my favorite websites is http://www.thedatingdivas.com/.



They have a site full of amazing ideas for married couples from birthday gift ideas to romantic ways to build anticipation for each other!

One of my favorite things about the website is their date night ideas! So many creative women have posted dozens fantastic ways to spend a romantic, fun or simply relaxing night with your guy.

I LOVE IT!

I definitely wanted to get in on this awesome movement towards strengthing marriages and sharing ideas with other married women on how to have a blast with the one youre spending your lofe with!

Check back into thewife extraordinaire tab often where I'll be adding post both from other women who have fabulously creative ideas and also some of my own works for us to try out with those hunks we call hubbys!

The Beautiful Gabby Turns 3!



When I first got married I knew absolutely no one in my husbands city. One of the first great friends I met was a wonderful woman by the name of Cecily. When she gave birth to her second daughter she named me and MDH the godparents and since our friendship has been an incredible blessing!


A few weeks ago her eldest daughter Gabrielle turned 3 and I wanted to do something special for her.....and I also wanted a good reason to catch up and chat with Cecily :)


Anywho I hung some fun balloons, threw a pretty pink table cloth over the tables and threw a fun impromptu three year old party!

I made a trip to my favorite department store *cough Von Maur cough* and picked up an ADORABLE Dora the Explorer backpack. Well I actually bought two...you cant just buy something for one sister when the other is sitting right there!


I also baked up a strawberry cake with delicious choclate frosting and it was a hit with the girls!


We had such a great time. The girls enjoyed all of the party fun and Cicely and I had some much needed catching up in the meantime.
