Remembering your husband doesn't think like a woman!

Good evening,

I am just a wife who cares and would do anything for my husband to make him understand how much I love him or make him feel loved. I sometime wonder if my husband even feel the same way towards me. Life is hectic as newlyweds of only 4 months! We are both working, we both have our own hobbies and our schedules are completely opposite! So making time for each other in my view is very hard to do and in my husbands eyes we spend quite a lot of time together. We have been working through this with a lot of communication but one thing that has been hard in that aspect for me is remembering my husband does not think about things or situations the way I do. He thinks very practical and "analytical". I think with well I guess I will just admit it without beating around the bush... Emotional. These feelings don't go very well together. I am pretty sure (correct me if I am wrong ladies) that the emotional side of me is raging while aunt flow is in town. In the last 5 years of being with my husband we have experienced many different situations, speed bumps and (yes) many arguments over the fact that sometimes we just think differently. My dear husband has told me since, the first lets just call them speed bumps (fight, situation, argument), "speed bump" that my emotions take over and I never make sense. Well I hope I am not the only woman that thinks this way but emotions are how I deal with things and also travel through life. Yes it is an emotional roller coaster, but it's how I experience most of my life!

So many of us woman have to take a step back during a speed bump and like driving in a car go slow over it and realize our husbands ( or boyfriend or significant other) may not be experiencing the same thought process that we are experiencing. One thing that has helped my husband and I is re-stating how we are in my case feeling and have him repeat it in a question. Example : (wife) I am feeling very hurt by the fact you want to go out with your friends without staying in with me? (Husband) You are feeling hurt that I want to go out with my friends instead of staying home with you, is this correct. : This technique of communication has worked really well with my dear husband and myself. Try giving it a try next time you and your love of your life are going over a speed bump! Well I hope this is has possibly helped someone out there that just may stumble across my post! :) I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend! As I will be resting and recovering from a procedure I had today! Goodnight!!!

Love, Brie

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.

Good Evening,

Well I have not only discovered Pinterest, but also now recently have discovered Polyvore! I have always wanted to be a "fashionista", but I would say my husband has more sense of style than myself! Which is frustrating at times, because once I am all ready to go thinking I look "good", my husband always looks at me with the "look". So I go back and change into something I have worn before and that I know he will approve. Well since getting married I have had more of a draw to fashion and I would like to get more into it. I really would love to have all the "essentials" as Pinterest says and I hope I can put together some really fun outfits to share with my readers. So like I am a beginner cook, I also am a beginner fashionista! Make-up is something I am definitely improving on, as well as my hair. Which has taken a lot of practice and advice from my friends. So I look forward to your comments and advice on my "fashionista" posts!

Here is one of my looks from Polyvore that I put together today!
Comments and advice welcomed :)

When I First discovered Pinterest...

Well Hello!
     Before getting married I would only cook for special occasions or if my fiance would ask me to make something special. I would find those easy recipe websites like or I would use the app on my iPhone and find a chicken recipe and always fine something that would take less than 30 minutes to make. My fiance always said what I made was good, but I never believed him. (Ps I am a picky eater so I always have to make myself a separate meal since I don't usually like what he wants)

      As I planing my wedding a friend of mine Katee invited me to Pinterest for ideas on the wedding... this was when Pinterest was not really "known" yet. This is when it all happened! I was finally excited, I had that giddy feeling about cooking! I saw all these recipes to make and they looked not only easy but amazing! So I started "pining" and then I made my first "Pinterest" recipe!!!!

Honey Lemon Chicken Enchiladas (Brie's Cheese Honey Lemon Enchiladas)
Also found on Six Sisters Stuff Blog
( )

Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas Recipe:


6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded (I usually boil 4 chicken breasts and shred them)
8-10 flour tortillas
1 pound Monterrey jack cheese, shredded (Brie's add 1 cup of cheese)
16 ounces green enchilada sauce
1 cup heavy cream

Whisk the first four ingredients and toss with shredded chicken in a Zip-loc bag. (Brie's cheese just substitute the additional cheese and marinade the cheese)  Let it marinate in the fridge for at least a 1/2 hour, but preferably a half day or so.  Pour about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.  Fill the tortillas with chicken,(fill half of them with Brie's cheese without chicken) saving marinade, and shredded cheese, saving about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top of enchiladas.  Put rolled tortillas in 9x13 pan as you go.  Mix the remaining enchilada sauce with the cream and leftover marinade (if there is any).  Pour sauce on top of the enchiladas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until brown and crispy on top.

       Like my title of the blog says simple and sweet!!! I will be making simple and sweet posts to my blog! I will be all over the board including... recipes, organization to your life and your home, fun ideas to "sweeten" your marriage not only in the first year but many years later, and lots more!!!! Hope you all enjoy my blog! Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Love, Brie

 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: 1If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!  Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?
