365 & No Black Eyes!

September 6, 2010

12 months, 52 weeks, and 365 days….That’s about as far as I can break it down…. My wifey and I have shared in the holy matrimony of marriage. It has been a great first year and I am happy to celebrate this wonderful milestone. We have continued to develop into our roles as husband and wife  and  it has been a great journey. Our intimacy has grown and we have become closer friends and companions. I love you baby and I look forward to celebrating September 6th over the remaining years of our lives!


King Chef – Hamburgers on English Muffins

June 27, 2010

Fellas, don’t waste your money on McDonalds this weekend. The King Chef is back to provide another addition to the lineup.

Hamburgers on English Muffins


¼ cup chopped parsley

1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce

1 Egg

1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs

BBQ Sauce

Hamburger meat

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix them together. Grab a handful of the mix and shape it into a patty. Before we continue, rewind a step and make sure you wash your hands. Ya lady would probably dislike you using the meat like playdo if you didn’t. To move forward, poke your finger at the top of the burgers to make a hole in the meat (Not like a doughnut hole but halfway through).  Fill it with shredded cheese and close the gap at the top. After this it’s grill time!

Love & Respect

June 23, 2010

Love & Respect is a highly recommended book for married couples. This was one of the first marriage books that my wife and I read before tying the knot. Dr. Emerson Eggerichs has gained biblical insight from a key scripture in the bible. Ephesians 5:33, “Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”

The husband’s main need is Respect while the wife’s main need is Love. When a husband becomes unloving then the wife becomes disrespectful. This is vice versa. When both scenarios take place then the ‘crazy cycle’ begins its course. Dr  Eggerichs speaks on several ways to show love and respect in order to counter the crazy cycle. The book  is an easy read and the ideas will be relatable with your personal experiences. I encourage couples to get this book and study it together. I am sure you will identify with the concept and build a strong love and respect for each other!

Marriage should be an exciting connection. Unfortunately, everyday life can tend to put the excitement in the background. It is important for married couples to revisit the days when they were developing a friendship. Husbands and wives should be best friends, and enjoy shoulder to shoulder activities. Laughing, wrestling, joking around, and the like are main ingredients of happy marriages.

Love has different faces and aspects. The Greek word Philia means ‘the friendship love’. It is the embodiment of everything a true and meaningful friendship represents. We should strive to place a priority on the friendship that exists Read more…

Lock the Door & Throw Away the Key

June 20, 2010

Growing up as a kid, life offered me a long list of ideas that portrayed what a man was. Being strong, courageous, and demanding respect pretty much summed up every aspect of the definition. In pursuit of this powerful image, I realized that I had some vulnerabilities that absolutely contradicted it. Although I was aware of these weak points it was my full-time duty to make sure everyone else didn’t notice.  Years ago I remember listening to ‘One Mic’ by Nas. There was a verse in the song that I was able to identify with. It said, “People will move on you only if they know what your weakness is.” I think a large portion of men share this mindset. It is natural to cover up our flaws to protect ourselves, but what is the effect when we have to interact with a woman in marriage? Can we afford to keep up a facade, or will transparency allow us to build upon our weaknesses? Read more…

A Special Occasion On An Average Day

June 15, 2010

Birthday, Valentines, Christmas, and Anniversary presents are a given. If you plan them properly, these occasions can be very special to your wife. Another popular time for gifts is when you’re in the dog house. Personally, I don’t like to make special plans in those situations.  A husband messes up and thinks of the most romantic things because the fire is on. The comeback is already expected, so give your apologies and make an effort to not make the same mistake. I usually rinse a few extra dishes on the side, but use the strategy that works best for you. 🙂  I believe wives mostly appreciate a thoughtful gesture that is out of the blue. Something that shows that we husbands are thinking of them ‘JUST BECAUSE’.

Sharing money, time, and space takes away the ability to secretly plan things in marriage. Another factor that interrupts  thoughtfulness is good ol’ comfort. We should make every effort not to go down these paths and stay in high pursuit of our wives. The concept doesn’t always have to be GRANDIOSE. More than often, the small, simple, and Read more…
