It also goes without saying that The Married Appetite will always hold a special place in my heart since it started as a sharing journal of sorts for me and my husband off and on again over the past three years. As you can easily tell, the idea that we both would post (mostly about our love of food) soon evaporated and it turned to posts mostly about style and entertainment and just good 'ol life from my POV.
That's why I'm moving over to something a little more fresh, simple and well... just down right girly! So stay tuned, more deets coming soooooooonnnn.

Hubby Birthdays

Do y'all get stuck on what to get your husbands for their birthday? I know I do... I had great intentions and tried to keep a list on my phone of ideas throughout the year. Needless to say, it wasn't as expansive by the time May (Rys birthday "month") rolled around.


If you're in the same boat, I thought I would try and lend a hand by listing out some ideas from the list (and memory ha).

So first, I gotta say it does depend on the type of guy your husband is, here's some quick facts about mine:
Born: NC; Fav Food: His own BBQ; Fav Pandora: Cross Canadian Ragweed; Fun Fact: His initials are RAP; Fav Drink: Bourbon; Summer Wardrobe Staple: Chubbies

That in mind, here's some ideas that I hope help you too!

-Festival Tickets (hello, Austin City Limits!)

-Piggybacking off the festival idea.. A Trip! We love traveling and usually look for places within a 5 hour drive to visit, but every now and then love the idea of jumping on a plane to a fun city too! Or, check out your local Groupon for a fun activity too!

-Anything to go towards "bro'ing up" the Man Cave

-Stein Koozie

-Bacon of the Month Club from Zingermans - this is a past favorite that I know he would appreciate again

-Golf Club Membership - Ryan loves to play so I know he would love a place to go regularly (bonus if they have a pool!)

 -Needlepoint Keychain - make one, or buy it!


Now, the next few are a little more practical, but I know they're things he definitely wants and needs...

-Brown Dress Shoes

-Sunglasses - I love these classic Kennedy-inspired frames

-Chubbies Shorts - I think Ry has almost every color, but they come out with new ones all the time

-Finally, Lawn Care - not the most fun idea ever, but would allow him so much more time for the fun stuff, like BBQ'ing!

So what are some other ideas? Send them my way!
