#61. Love intentionally.

In everything you do, your intention should be to give love.

In every word spoken…

In every action taken…

Intentionally love him.


#53. Give up a little closet space.

I’m embarrassed to say.  Without even realizing it, I’d put my guy completely out of my closet.  I don’t think it was a huge deal to him, but being willing to make a little closet space for him is a tell-tell sign that I love him.



#33. Cater to him.

Yesterday I was all set to nag the hell out of my “him” over a something small. When I called him, he’d just gotten off work and I could hear in his voice that he was tired.  So I took a note from my girls (Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle) and started cooking him some dinner and making sure home was nice and neat for him.

By the time I was done cooking, the thing I was planning on fussing out wasn’t even a big deal.

Sometimes you’ve got to put things on hold and give him loving attention.

#32. Wear something off the shoulder.

I don’t know what it is, but a little shoulder action tends to do something for men.  Regardless of if it’s a cute blouse or dress or an oversized, slouchy t-shirt, fellas love it and since “off-the-shoulder” probably isn’t your everyday attire, he’ll know you’re doing it for him.  

And don’t be afraid of a little cleavage.  I know it’s cliche, but a little cleavage never hurt anyone:)

#30. Let him surprise you.

And Cheese.  


I’d worked late and even though I’d planned on cooking him dinner, I was a bit annoyed when I got his text asking that I cook broccoli And Cheese.

First of all, I don’t like broccoli and cheese.  Broccoli is fine but the “And Cheese” is not a fan favorite for me.  He loves it.

Secondly, I knew I had frozen broccoli in the freezer, but I didn’t have any Velveeta.  That meant I’d have to go to the grocery store.  I was already working at until 8pm.  I didn’t want to be working until 8pm.  I also didn’t want to go to the store.

Instead of complaining to him, I sent back a message that only said, “yes.”  He’d been stressed.  He wanted the And Cheese so I’d suck it up and make sure his dinner was  warm by the time he made it over.

When I made it to the grocery store, I’d made a mental list things I needed so I grabbed a buggy.  There was no point in wasting a trip to the grocery store on only buying the And Cheese.  It was 9:15pm before I pulled up to my place.  I hated carrying grocery bags up the stairs and into my apartment.  Ugh!  Frustrated and annoyed.
And then it happened.

I turned the key to my place and I smelled red beans and rice, salmon, broccoli and the cheese was in one of my bags.  My frown immediately turned upside down.

There he sat with a big, ol’ southern smile on his face because he knew he had got me.  Surprise!  Daddy’s home and dinner’s ready.

I could’ve complained.  I could’ve told him no when he asked about the cheese.  Hell, I could called it a cereal for dinner night (which he hates). Thank God my attitude didn’t get the best of me and I went with the flow. Dinner was great!  I even ate the And Cheese:)




#28. Sing and dance to cheesy songs.

Sometimes when you’re in a rut, you’ve just got to rock out to a really fun song.  Lucky for us, the radio plays tons of them.  Take your pick and have at it.
