My husband is one of those guys who isn’t super concerned with style.  If it’s comfortable, he will wear it.

Except sweatpants, he won’t wear those, which makes no sense to me.

For the most part he’ll wear what I buy for him.  BUT left up to his own devices, even the most carefully and lovingly selected items can quickly go awry.

For example, the cargo pant.  My husband is the one with his cargo pant pockets fully loaded.  I have told him that you’re not supposed to actually fill the pockets, that they’re just a style.  This logic makes no sense to him.  If a pocket is there, surely it is meant to be used.

He’s trying to help the pants live up to their full potential, he says.

Next up, work-out wear.  To him, this can be anything.   He came home from a “run ” the other day dressed in jeans, a belt, boots and a tucked in T-shirt.  He literally went running in a belt.   I was telling my girlfriend about it and how weird it is to run in jeans and she asked me who he was running from…because the only time anyone should be running in jeans and a belt is when they fear for their life.  I tried to explain to him that if there are buttons or a belt loops you shouldn’t be exercising in them, but my logic fell on deaf ears.

This brings me to my next point…jeans.  My husband has yet to retire the “carpenter style” jeans that were popular back in the early 2000’s.   My husband isn’t a carpenter and doesn’t regularly carry around a hammer, so any pant with a hammer loop is really unnecessary in our daily lives. BUT since these jeans are so baggy I am assuming that running in them isn’t as hard as say, a pair of skinnys.

He doesn’t understand why I get embarrassed.  And honestly, the more embarrassed I get, the more he tried to push the envelope.

A few weeks ago we had a cold day…in the 20’s.  He and I had to run to the store together and he went to get in the car dressed in a shirt and shorts.  Basically like it was Spring Break.  I told him to go put on his clothes, to which he replied, “Yeah, this is what I am wearing.”

He refused to change into weather-appropriate attire.  I was so embarrassed.  I tried to pretend that he was my father when we went to the store, instead of my husband…shaking my head and calling him “dad” really loud…which totally backfired when he started saying completely inappropriate sexy-time comments to me.  I can’t win.

So anyway, I ask you, please..am I the only wife who has to deal with this?

I need intervention tips!

Now to comfort myself from the carpenter jeans humiliation I have to endure daily I make sweet treats.  It’s a coping mechanism.

Today we have my most favorite thing of all, the Fruity Pebbles Rice Krispie Treat.

I have been making Rice Krispie treats with Fruity Pebbles for years and years and years.  It’s my most favorite variation on the usual Rice Krispie Treat.  And in the case of trying to keep things fresh I adapted my recipe slightly to accommodate for more marshmallows.  Because the more the merrier.  Plus, when I saw these mini “Mallow Bits” at Target a few weeks ago I knew exactly how I wanted to use them.

Here are the stars of the show…

Boxes of Rice Krispie and Fruity Pebbles cereals and a jar of Marshmallow Bits.

Being the self-proclaimed Krispie expert that I am, I like to use a combination of the cereals.  Through years of research I have perfected the ratio of Rice Krispies to Fruity Pebbles, for the best Fruity Pebbles Treats!  *ahem.

Once you do the usual Krispie business: melting the butter, melting the marshmallows, stirring in the cereal you will need to take these to the next level by adding the Mallow Bits…

Stir that up and press the yumminess into a greased pan.

And if you bought an extra jar of the Mallow Bits you can pour some more on top for a pretty garnish.  Pretty garnishes are important.

Cut them up and eat to help soothe the pain of living with your fashion crime of a spouse.

  1. I love this recipe! I have made it twice, and everyone absolutely loves these!! Thank you so much for your creative, yummy recipes–they are so fun and inspiring! I can’t wait to make more of them–I am so glad that you share your ideas!

  2. So, I may be the only male cook on the planet that has come across this blog, but while looking for a “recipe” for fruity pepple treats, I came across this. I have to admit, I laughed as well at your husband story, it’s good to know I’m not the only one! I guess once we become husbands, we lose our “sense of style”. I love your site and your wonderful pictures of all of your creations. Looking forward to making the fruity pepple treats with the kids this weekend. Thank you!

  3. Oh, this is all too hilarious. The original post was to die for, and several of these comments have me laughing out loud. I’m not going to elaborate, but let’s just say I feel your pain, deeply, and my husband loves his carpenters also!

  4. My husband definitely had a love for the carpenter jeans! I will not allow them in public anymore. He wears the few pairs he has left for work and has even gone as far as getting out the sewing machine himself to sew the holes in them.

    My husband wore a dress shirt with a fleece sports vest today…..
    Glad my husband isn’t the only one!
