Hey! It’s me, Makana with Texas is For Lovers and I am back to share a fun idea that will help you get to know your spouse a little better! I was watching one of my favorite prime-time shows a few months ago when the light bulb went off. I remembered last year I saw this Christmas idea and I wanted to add my own twist to it.
In the favorite prime-time show mentioned above, this couple knew EVERYTHING about each other. So rather than telling my cute hubby what I love about him, I wrote out various stories and one-lines about me. And I tried to make them all things that he does not know about me.
One day he would said, “So, you named your pet pig Blackie?” And I thought, “yes, but how did you know…?” Oh yeah!! I had put it in the jar! And each day would go like that. We have been married for 5 years but have only known each other for six. With school, then jobs, and now kids, and being back in school, time to just talk about random things are few and far between. When the jar is candy-less and memory-less, it will be his turn to fill it and mine to find out more about my man! So print off the label, grab a jar, start filling out slips of paper… and start sharing!
Wow.. this is such a coool idea.. i made a similar surprise once, i bought a cute little box and filled it with little love notes about the REASONS WHY I LOVE HIM and also filled it with Fox toffees in berry flavors (his favorite) he liked it soo much !!
I love this idea, but I married my best friend almost 15 years ago. I don’t think there is anything I could find. I need to find a way to tweak this.. Any suggestions
Maybe make it a jar of things you would like to do that you have not ever done or have not done in a very long time. Could be personal, intimate, or family oriented.
I really like this idea, Makana!! Super cute & a great way to learn things about each other!
I have gotten married in the past year and love this site
Awww. so sweet! This is a fantastic idea!! this keeps the relationship up and running and definitely Interesting :)))
Oh that’s awesome!! I find it kinda hard to bring up some of that stuff because it doesn’t really ever fit into a conversation…so this will be super!
I LOVE this idea. How fun and cute…I tell my husband a lot of useless trivia about me, but I’m sure I can manage a few surprises. ! I am definitely doing this one! Thanks for sharing.
