Wordy Wednesday – Frugal Novice

Wordy Wednesday

Since I’ve decided there are enough memes out there, I have started just linking up my Wordy Wednesday posts with Wordless Wednesday memes. I’m such a rebel, huh?

I got into the shower this weekend and found a message waiting for me, courtesy of Brian.

Totally better than a bouquet of flowers, I think.

My “love language” is Words of Affirmation, according to the book Five Love Languages. That means that I feel most loved when I hear that I am loved or appreciated.

Brian and I read this book early on in our marriage, and it was a great eye opener for us. I had never really thought about the fact that what made me feel loved might not really work for Brian – the quiz revealed that his “love language” is Quality Time. Spending time together playing a board game or cooking dinner makes him feel the most loved.

If you haven’t read the book, there’s a short one-question quiz here to get a general idea of what your love language might be. I’m curious to know – what makes you feel the most loved? What’s your love language? Do you think your spouse’s love language differs from yours?

    I love that book!! My love language is gifts. Yeah, my love can totally be bought LOL But seriously, this means if I do not get a gift for Valentine’s or my birthday, I don’t feel loved – even if he says it….I want him to show it….and doing the dishes (service) is totally NOT my love language. LOL

    That was so very sweet of him – you are blessed!

      Annie, that’s apparently how I best give love – so we’d totally get along, haha! If Brian’s had a bad week at work, I’ll go buy him something I know he’ll love to cheer him up.

      Heidi, I can see that for you – you do SO much for your family!

  • Rachel - Following In My Shoes March 29, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    I love that book — my love language is acts of service . . . my husband’s is “words.” It’s crazy how much KNOWING that language for each person can make SUCH a difference.

    • Christi March 30, 2011 at 9:17 am

      I agree! It really helps us know how to be supportive and loving to each other in the ways that work best, and I think it’s contributed to the happiness of our marriage.

  • Jennifer @ Mom Spotted March 29, 2011 at 10:21 pm

    Love it! You make me want the book now!

  • Louise March 29, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    That is so sweet, and especially so because he’s taking the time to love you in the way you most feel loved!

    I have that book and need to read it!

    • Christi March 30, 2011 at 9:18 am

      He’s a good one! :)

  • Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma March 30, 2011 at 10:37 am

    That is so sweet! My hubby isn’t a romantic guy at all but he tells me loves me on the phone a few times a day. I took the quiz and found out that Acts of Service make me feel the most loved. When I read the definition it was right on the money! I will have to share this with my husband.

      It’s always amazing to me how spot-on the descriptions seem to be!
