MEN'S WEEK: My Hubby's Favorite Blog + Giveaway!

(Don't forget to check out today's giveaway and yesterday's winner at the end of this post).

Since this is Man's Week here at THAT family (I just want to grunt every time I type that), I thought I'd share a tip and tell you my hubby's favorite blog.  

Other than mine.

The blog is written for husband's and is aptly called, iAMHUSBAND. I must admit, I subscribe too.

The insightful author has dedicated his blog to helping husbands be better husbands.  He encourages and challenges hubby's to take their wives on date nights, starve their eyes from lusting after other women, help their wives through bad days and surprising them with trinkets or something special.

Now we're talking.

He also gives ideas for dates, advice, and encourages men to read the latest and best books on marriage.  Like For Men Only by Shaunti Feldhahn.  

I read For Women Only two years ago and it changed my marriage.  I'll be sharing about that later this week.

This was a post from last week on iAMHUSBAND

"You have twenty-four hours to surprise your wife with something nice. The only catch is that it can't be that thing you usually surprise her with; this has to be something different. Do something, buy something, make something, or say something. Get creative, think big, think small — just think. And then come back here and share with us what did."

Does it get any better than that?  Someone telling my hubby to do something nice for little, 'ol me? 

And, guess what?  He did.

That works for me.   Share this little tip with your hubby.  You'll be glad you did!  Go see what works for everyone else at Works for Me Wednesday.

Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment so you can be entered to win this:



Yes, I am not holding back this week.  Only the best for you.  This is exactly what the griller in your life needs because this handy tool belt holds all the grilling necessities.  

It will change his life or at least the steak he's cooking. 

Leave a comment by Wednesday night at 10 pm (CST) and I'll announce the lucky winner on Thursday.

Congrats to FavAunt (email) on winning the giant Remote Control!

Sounds like a great man blog. My husband mostly reads professional-development type stuff. But there's no reason he shouldn't be reading stuff that encourages wife-lovin'.

Mrs. N. said...

I have to pass this along to my hubby. Thanks.

Favaunt said...

I won, I won. Yippeeee-iiiiiii-ayyyyye. Who could ever live without a gigantic, universal remote control. I have to tell you, though, my oldest has been dying for us to get one. He just mentioned the other day how awesome life would be. Are guys born knowing about remotes? Thank you, my clan of men appreciate it.

Amanda said...

What a great link. I'll forward it to my guy too. He can always use encouragement in the areas mentioned. Thanks for the tip!

Jenn said...

iamHusband sounds like a great blog. I'm not sure my husband will read it though. He's not into reading much on the computer unless it has to do with hunting or fishing. But ya never know, I can only try!

P.S. He loves you... said...

How funny...my future bro in law..would love this belt!

Where'd you get it again?

Great post as usual...go leave me a comment! I'm due for a "tycoon" one as of late, you know it's good for press and all! wink wink!!!

Miss Erica said...

Mmmm, the perfect thing for a man and summertime: grilling tools! And I'll get to enjoy not only his joy at receiving the gift, but also the tasty steak. Something for everyone today. Thanks! And I will definitely check out that blog, 'cause it looks great.

World's Greatest Mommy said...

This belt is ginormous. I'm passing on the blog info to my husband, although he's been awesome at surprising me lately. I'll bet he wants something...

Everychapter said...

What a great site- thanks for the tip. I'll be checking back later the hear about For Women Only. Thanks!

Karen said...

If my husband read blogs I'd have him read that one!

Of course that may be defeating the purpose if I tell him what to do.

Kisha said...

That is a great prize to bad I'm the one that is always grilling, lol.

misty said...

Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Tara said...

That looks like a great website. My husband rarely uses the computer, but I'm going to send it his way anyhow.

I just bought For Women Only, and I can't wait to start reading it. I got the discussion guide, too. You aren't the first person who has told me that it changed her marriage.

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Mr. Hallisicle is almost perfect - not sure he's benefit from this blog site. (can you hear me laughing all the way across bloggy world?)

Hallie :)

Jess said...

Heading over to the site after leaving this comment... it sounds great! There's a ton of sites focused on wives... it's refreshing to hear of a good one for support of husbands too.

What a great idea... hubby would love it for his birthday... or our anniversary??!! :o)

I just found your site and I'll definitely be stopping by more often!

Mandy said...

What a great site! I am setting it up on my husband's Google Reader. :)

The Fritz Facts said...

I added that to my reader, maybe drop some hints with the hubby...lol

Love the grill belt! So fun.

Happy Mommy said...

Girl you are super fast, how do you always post on WFM so fast! Love the grillers belt! Happy Wednesday. And you picture for today is priceless.

Kim Priestap said...

I love the idea of a husband blog, and as much as I would love it if my husband would read it, I know he never would. He just isn't into books about marriage or fatherhood. He just does his thing. He's good at buying me stuff, usually it's the Victoria's Secret kind of stuff (I joke with him that they're really gifts for him), but I appreciate it nonetheless.

Great post.

Beth said...

OMGosh-I just found your blog and I could read for HOURS! I have a feeling our families would get alone just fine, lol.
The belt is too fun and THAT Wednesday Photo ROCKS!
Thanks so much for the laugh!

Colleen said...

Oooh - I think I might have to send the hubster an email telling him to check out that blog! :O)

Alicia said...

Oh, wow!!! My hubby would LOVE this. He would look sexy in it too as he was grilling me one of his famous ribeyes. Dangit! Now I'm hungry. The sun is barely up and I'm already hungry for his cooking.

marky said...

thanks for the man blog! the picture of the diaper covered family is too funny! or are those pull ups?
Anyway .. awesome grill accessories!!
This has been a fun blog week!

Merrianne & Spencer said...

Sounds like a Great BLOG!!! :)

KD-Pie said...

I will check that blog out! Sounds really neat!

Cute tool belt. Wait--Man-ly tool belt!

What a great Manly-Man gift! My hubby would love this...his idea of a complete outfit always has something to do with a belt worn around his waist with "trinkets" dangling ~ tools, grilling accessories, whatever! LOL. Loved the Husband site (they can all use a little help in the wife lovin' dept!)

Sarah W. said...

Since my husband has yet to be bought a Father's Day gift, this would be perfect....even if it is a few days late. Grilling is his thing, and he would look so cute (er, macho, I mean) with it on!!

sarahw56 @ gmail . com
is my email, but i iwll check back to see WHEN I win it (faith!!!!!)

Cassondra said...

My hubby loves to BBQ--and he could carry all of his supplies with him!!

A Couple of Kitchen Ditchers said...

What a great idea for a blog! Maybe'we will go onto our husbands accounts and surprise them with a subcription to this blog!!!

Jennie said...

I am definitely sending my husband over to iamhusband. What a great idea!

Alisa said...

Would it be too obvious if I put that link in his Father's day card? I can't complain, my husband is stupendous in the taking care of me area, it's more romance he needs help on!Thanks for the great link.

Niki said...

I'm lovin the giant belt!

And I can't wait to go check out the hubby blog. I am always trying to find a blog mine would like so he can enjoy the obsession, I mean passtime, of blog-hoppin'.

LOL

:)

Grateful for Grace said...

I might actually get my dh to read that blog. I'll link it to him, at least.

Thanks!

Threeundertwo said...

LOL, love the grill belt.

I was going to drop you a line, you're loading a little slowly for me lately.

Christina said...

That is an amazing blog! Thanks so much for sharing!! And I will be visiting your blog more often~ :)

Jamie said...

Thanks for sharing about the man blog...I'll pass it on to my husband for sure.

marigold said...

If I could get my husband off Craigslist long enough to look, I would be impressed! Thanks Kristen!

craftymom said...

Most men should be reading that blog! My DH needs help in that dept., though he'd be crushed to know I think that..

This is my first visit to your site and I like your style!

Dawn said...

Unfortunately my husband will not read blogs, so there's no hope that he will read that one, even though it sounds like a great one.

Gotta GROW with it said...

how funny, i immediately assumed it was a utility belt for t-o-o-l-s! oh my hubby would LOVE one of these!

Miscellaneous From Missy said...

I can't wait to visit the husband blog. Thanks for the tip! Jeremy would DIE if I won that belt for him. He would be in heaven!

Crayl said...

Great manly week so far.:)

Kimbrah said...

I really like this series. I am going to recommend that blog to my husband. :)

Tonya said...

pinkexplosion said...

Nice manly man stuff. I will provide link for Mr. Manly Man in the office..

Laura@Storytellin' Mama said...

Thanks for the tip on the blog!

I'll send my husband to check it out.

Cool barbecue set!!!

Karen said...

That bbq belt is a riot!

Bina said...

I am definitely going to check that blog out. My husband just doesn't think that way, and I KNOW he won't read a blog, so I can just him stuff I think he needs to know! Whether it does any good or not? We'll see.

And I would LOVE that belt!!!!!!

PICK ME PICK ME!

Tammy said...

My husband is addicted to the "Stuff Christians Like" blog. I bet he would like the iAmHusband blog too.

How perfect is the grilling utility belt. Hubby could have used that last night!

Genny said...

Sounds like a great blog. I'll have to check it out. Better yet, I'll have to tell my hubby to check it out. Thanks for the info!

franticallysimple said...

On my way to subscribe for my husband! :)

Tausha said...

great idea-I will have my hubby check it out. Maybe he will secretly go there and do all the things your husband suggests.
That would be great.
Thanks for doing all the giveawys. That is a true blogger. You should pick me cause I have yet bought my dear old hubby anything. This would be perfect, even if he only saw the picture of it!

Kim said...

Thanks for the new site. I'm sending it to my hubby, maybe he will pick something up while he's away.

ihchicky said...

With only 17 minutes to go, here is my last minute entry! Gotta say that I love what you are giving away. How creative. It would make a great belated father's day gift. Thanks a lot.

Audra Krell said...

This is the best tip I have received all week, and I just read it on Father's Day to boot! Another great book that changed my marriage (along with Shaunti's) was Sacred Influence by Gary Thomas. I am a different and thousand times better wife for reading it. Thanks so much for passing this site along.
