I mentioned before I left of our new sponsor 3M. You guys know that I love DIY’s, and we should all do more. There is nothing like making it happen on you own, with your own hands. 3M is running a super cool promotion which applies to almost anyone that talks to someone about their DIY. Its called
So what is the purpose:
What makes a relationship work? Communication. But what we hear sometimes, and what the other person really means may not be same. It is something that is almost guaranteed to happen when communicating over DIY projects. Everyone has an opinion, but they may not always communicate that thought.
I know COUPLE SPEAK happens all the time in my home. Mr. Styles is always asking me for my opinion on his projects, but as the LOVING WIFE (SMILE)…I COUPLE SPEAK. Is that wrong?
Here is my example:
Mr. Styles: Hey Babe…do you plan on painting your office that pink color?
Me: Yeah, why?
Mr. Styles: Oh nothing just asked.
BUT…what he really means is: ARE YOU REALLY PAINTING THE HOUSE PINK? I HOPE NOT.
Here is another one.
Me: Are you going to help me paint the top of the walls?
Mr. Styles: I want to but my hands are so big, I think they hinder my straight line brushing ability.
Me: (silence, and a look)
BUT….What he really means is: I don’t want to paint straight lines, mess them up, and hear your mouth afterward.
Here is a video from 3M that shows just what I mean.
