A few months ago :::cue emotional interview music::: I found out my husband was a closeted Pinterest user.

I’ve been using Pinterest for nearly 2 years and my husband had little to no interest in it.  Much less using it!  As far as I knew, he thought it was something “only girls did”.  He would always see me browsing, looking at decadent desserts and cute fashion, and thought that was all there was to Pinterest.  Well a few months back I saw him casually, yet intently scrolling through the Pinterest app on his iPad.  I thought nothing of it at the time, only asking him what he was looking up.  He answered me, “just derpin”.  His phrase for spending wasting time on the internet.  Hubs occasionally showed me a cool knot for tying a tie or some car he’d come across.

I thought that was it, but no, no it wasn’t.  One evening he was on Pinterest again, and showed me something and I looked to the top right of the screen and saw he was actually logged into Pinterest.  So the conversation went like this:

Me:  You have a Pinterest account?

Him: Yeah

Me:  Since when?

Him:  For a long time.  I’ve always had one.

Me:  Why aren’t you following me?  Oh look, those are my Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Why aren’t you following me?  You don’t even have a picture on your profile.

Him:  You know I don’t do all that.

So, again I left it at that, but the cat was out of the bag.  From that point on I saw him Pinteresting more and more.  However, I wasn’t prepared for what came next:  The unadulterated plethora of Man Cave pins.

Just like with everything else on Pinterest, all it takes is a quick search and a gazillion pins are at your fingertips for whatever you’re searching.  So now, my husband is man cave obsessed more than ever.  I think he literally spent all last Saturday morning pinteresting man caves and other buildable ideas, or projects as he likes to refer to them as.  He’s got a serious itch to create, build, and one day have his own little corner of our home to call his own.  It will be the place where one of these will be on the wall:

and one of these too, just as a reminder:

It doesn’t help that we have a son, so he has an automatic partner in crime (no pun intended, since He’s a cop).  How will all this affect me?

Well, I guess I get the rest of the house to be my woman cave.  Does that even make sense?  Maybe castle…well a girl can only dreams!

What about you? – Does your husband have a man cave?  If he doesn’t, does he want one?  What do you think about man caves, yay or nay?

xxoo,

    1. Thanks so much! That’s cool that your husband has his own space. Sounds like he keeps it simple. My husband on the other hand would have a giant fish aquarium, pool table, miniature golf, huge flat screen, and who knows what else!

  1. Eh, yay I guess. My husband has a room that can potentially be used more but I don’t know that he’d consider it a man cave. Just a really nice guest room that he uses for movies and video games!
    I have an office “treehouse” that I simply love! He needs a nice space too.

    1. LOL, yeah your right, I guess they’re allowed to have a little bit of their own space! That’s so awesome that you have a treehouse office. Wow, I’d love to have soemthing like that. A little nook to escape off to and just relax would be awesome! 🙂

  2. “Closeted interest user…” LOL!!!! That’s hilarious that you found out he was on Pinterest. I don’t know why men get so obsessed with man caves. My husband has one and he NEVER uses it. He still watched TV in the main living room. I don’t get it, LOL! He died to have that space and it’s just going to waste. Loving the knot on that necktie too!

    1. Girl, I tell you…he didn’t want me to know! Tried to downpaly it and everything, lol! Now, he’s way more open and it always showing me pins. I think he shows me more pins than I show him. I think my husband would like to believe he would use it a lot, but probably would still be hanging out with me and our son. So I’m right there with you on that one! 🙂

  3. This is pretty funny how you found this out. LOL. If my husband figured out how to use it, he actually might genjoy it as well 🙂 I have a son too so I know they will be having that man time together so I must say if this baby isn’t a girl, if we have another one, I hope that will be a girl so that I can have a lady to share things with woman to woman 🙂

    1. I’ll tell you, I grew up in a house where the only women were my mom and I, because I’m the only girl and have two older brothers. Many times I had to watch Nascar and play Hot Wheels with my brother, watch Westerns with my Dad, and whatever other guy/man stuff from my other brother. It was so nice to have my mom to go to hang out with and relate to. I too will have another baby if our #2 isn’t a girl. I don’t want to be that outnumbered, lol! I’m certain that’s the reason my mom had me. She nearly stopped at my two brothers, but my parents tried again because my mom really wanted a girl. Needless to say, I’m happy they did! 🙂

  4. “Closet Pinterest User” too funny! My husband is on Pinterest, too. Mostly travel and motorcycles. He doesn’t follow me either and I don’t follow him. I’m not sure I want to see some of his pins hahaha

    1. Lol, you may be on to something there! I might not want to delve too much into my husband’s imagination and see what he’s pinning too. Maybe it really is a good thing we’re not following each other. Although maybe he would see some of my jewelry pins and get me a nice ring, watch, or bracelet?!

  5. Hahahahah! This is hilarious! So he’s still not following you? LOL You have to admit, the man caves he pinned looks awesome! My son and I are planning to make a “Mens Room” where they said they will place the TV, playstation and whatever gadgets boys love and take note, no ladies allowed. LOL

    1. Nope he still isn’t, lol! You all’s “men’s room” sounds a lot like what my husband would love. The Playstation, the gadgets…yep right up his alley. You’re a good sport for helping out with making it. My husband knows he’s all on his own with creating his man cave, lol!

  6. This is hilarious! My husband doesn’t have a man cave. I don’t even think he wants one. He’d want an “us” cave…where we lock the kids out!

    1. Lol, I’d totally take an “us” cave! I think my husband and I may need one once our son gets older and will be running us ragged all day. He’s a baby now, so we have some time, but we know its coming sooner than later.
