Today on Instagram the account masculinerevival asked the question. “What should a wife do when her husband refuses to lead their marriage” and so many people chimed in. But I loved what Mrs. Midwest had to say, and if you haven’t checked her blog, YouTube channel, or Instagram out you are really missing out.
Here are two screenshots of her response, I thought they were great and got me thinking!

Okay y’all. I absolutely have to share this recipe with you that I found on tiktok!
This is probably one of the best recipes Out of the ones I’ve tried and it’s absolutely delicious.
I’m not very skilled when it comes to cooking, so the crockpot has become my best friend. I serve this creamy Italian chicken over pasta and my husband goes crazy for it.
It’s 4 ingredient Italian chicken in the crockpot!
For those of you who don’t have tiktok, here is the recipe:
4-6 boneless chicken breasts (depending on how large your crockpot is or how many you’re feeding. I’m only cooking for two and three chicken breasts is plenty!)
2 cans of cream of chicken soup (in the tiktok she does say mushroom but uses chicken)
1 block of Philadelphia cream cheese
1 package of Italian dressing seasoning mix￼
Place your chicken breasts along the bottom of your crockpot. Then pour in the two cans of cream of chicken soup, covering the tops of the chicken. Because it’s a thicker consistency I like to use a spoon to evenly spread it across the top.
Next you want to cut up your cream cheese block into cubes and place on top of the cream of chicken. I prefer to spread them out fairly even, but after it’s done cooking it’s melted anyways and then you mix it up so it doesn’t necessarily matter how you put it in. That’s just the way I like to do it. Refer to my picture, or the original video if you are confused. I’m not the best at typing directions out lol. ￼
Next pour your Italian seasoning over the top of ￼￼everything! This is what gives it the flavor.
Turn your crockpot on low for 4 hours and then mix it up! I like to shred the chicken a little bit, to make it easier to serve. I serve mine over pasta, but you can serve it with mashed potatoes, vegetables or even by itself.￼￼
For those of you who do use tiktok, I will link the video right here.
All credit goes to the person who made this video!

It’s femme housewife time again
I know y’all love it lol
Packing her lunches for work sounds so great right now. That’s all i want. Can I please meal prep for my future wife? Make sure all of her lunches are tasty and filling. Put little notes in there every morning!!! Make the first batch of food on Sunday then again on Wednesday so it’s all fresh throughout the week. Having her taste test new recipes to make sure she likes them. Imagining her lil smile as I put the spoon in her mouth has me swooning.
I could send in big batches of cookies for her to share with her coworkers on Fridays, since they’ve worked so hard. Maybe bring a cake in for peoples birthdays? Catering work parties because everyone already likes my cooking and knows I’ll get everything done on time.
If she forgets her lunch one day I could drive up and give it to her. Tease her for being so forgetful, give her a lil kiss then head back home. (hopefully leave a lipstick mark on her cheek cause it’s cute as heck)
Our fridge will look so neat once I have all of her food packed away into containers for the week. All ready to just pop into her lunchbox. I could have her main dishes and sides separated so she could tell me in the morning what she wants instead of the same dish every day.
Meal prepping for my wife 🥰

I literally cry some night thinking about the fact that I just want to be a homemaker.
I want to build bunk beds for my kids and bookshelf for my husbands.
I wan to make homemade apple sauce and pickles and bread and jam.
I want my family to be able to come home to a somewhat clean house with dinner already cooked so they don't have to be stressed out about that.
I want to be able to pick up my kids from school if they're sick or unwell at any hour of the day.
I want to be able to keep my kids home until they turn 7 so they are fully grown before they face school and they feel confidant and safe.
I want to sew up socks and shorten jeans and knit sweaters.
I want to be able to respect my own limits and disability. Have a nap if I need it and take breaks whenever possible.
I just want to be able to BE without have to do something for the world. I think I've earned that. But I just don't think it is fiscally possible for me and that's why I cry about it.

Homemakers discord is now up!!

We don’t become instant Pinterest-worthy, book-worthy, blogging-worthy, Instagram homemakers at the moment we make our vows to our husbands. This isn’t expert-level achieved in 4 years. Homemaking changes too much for that and has too many parts. It is a massive job that becomes more massive the longer you invest yourself in it. You can’t perfect it in a year and you’ll still be tweaking and changing it as long as you’re a homemaker.
This is a long term calling, not a weekend gig.
It requires breathing, listening, thinking, planning, and staying observant.
Myquillyn Smith, in Welcome Home, talks about being “quiet enough to listen” to her family and home.
Ponder on layers, HearthKeepers. Ponder on learning a new skill, developing a new habit, and creating a better system. This requires observation, stopping, listening, and experimenting. Don’t try to do it all, just do one thing. Take your time with it. You’re here for the long-haul, not the weekend. Remember to root yourself in truth. God sanctifies us and grows us a little at a time. Older women have more layers so go talk to them. Quiet. Quiet in our hearts is quiet in our homes.

And we're in the final week... Hopefully! My due date is this Friday, and while there aren't too many signs this little lady will be joining us soon I have spent the better part of today deep cleaning my kitchen and living area for some reason. Hoping that's the famous nesting instinct but I do like a clean house so it's hard to tell 😂
Something that I did take pride in was that last week my mother and sister visited me in the week and both mentioned how clean my house looked and smelled despite me not having really prepped for their arrival aside from decluttering the kitchen table. I know keeping the house clean will likely take the backseat once we have a newborn so I'm enjoying it while I can!
Currently running a bleach deep clean in the washing machine while I also wait for my oven to finish up with its cleaning product so I'm enjoying a sit down and cup of tea before I have to get back on my feet.

From now on whenever feminists try to convince me I shouldn't be a homemaker by saying "what if your husband leaves you or dies" or "he is gonna leave you for a younger model then you will be fucked" I'm going to respond the same way and be equally as condescending
"Well what about when you get fired or you company goes under"
"What about when they find a better employee "
Seriously stop with the fake concern and condescending b.s
It is not your business if I have a savings or how much I can make, what my education or employment experience is and the stupid what ifs you throw at us are not the "gotchas" you think they are.
Every single homemaker has to acknowledge the financial situation they are in and while many have savings or are able to work from home when needed they arent required to share that with you, random tumblr feminists
And whether or not you choose to believe it the "risks" of being a homemaker and depending on our spouse (who we love and has earned our trust) are often far outweighed by the rewards of this lifestyle.

Homemaking doesn’t end when you leave the home:
Within the last two months I have been doing a lot of traveling with my husband and our families. I’ve had a lot of time to relax and reflect on where I am at in my life, and growing in my role as a housewife and homemaker. Stepping into this role has made me realize that this job doesn’t stop just because we are on vacation.
I’m not a mother yet, but the famous “a mother’s work is never done” saying is what I think of in this case. Vacation or not, there is always something needing to be done. Dishes needing washed, meals needing to be cooked, packing and unpacking of suitcases, etc. Obviously not every vacation requires the cooking of your own meals or washing of dishes but I hope you understand what I’m trying to say.
There is always caring that needs to be done. The pride I have put into my role has changed my marriage and our home for the better. I remember my husband watching me contently as I made us breakfast while we were camping. It made my heart happy just to hear him say “baby, I’m so proud of you. You’re beautiful.” The happiness and pride in him as a man and husband to have a home cooked breakfast and to be cared for was so heartwarming to create.
Moral of the story here is, our jobs as women, wives, mothers, homemakers etc, never truly ends. We are so significant and important. I love being one half of a whole. Men and women aren’t meant to be the same. Being complimentary is one of the greatest gifts God gave us. Being able to do things and provide what someone else lacks is why the partnership is so necessary. It’s beautiful and even on vacation, I love caring for my husband and being a woman I feel proud of.💐🎀

It’s not ￼controversial to want to be a stay at home wife.
It’s not bad to be a stay at home wife.
It’s not sexist to be a stay at home wife.
It’s feminist to support woman who willingly want to be a stay at home wife.
As long as the wife has made the decision herself and her husband isn’t forcing her, it’s perfectly fine to be a stay at hole wife. Fight me.

This is a fascinating article, and while I am not LDS, it does help explain things in the more "mainstream" "stay at home" subculture.
Shame, because the leggings look nice.

Little bits of life found in my yard.
A baby toad.
A baby lizard.
My happy ivy.
These things, even in suburbia, flourish. They make me smile and appreciate my simple, quiet life.
