Fed up of all the husband/man bashing, lets say nice things for a change. If you cant say anything nice, don't say it here

Just seen that my husband is trying to get me a book I've been after for ages but is expensive/hard to get in the UK. I wonder if I get it for my birthday <3

Not a woman,but my wife did some stuff recently that has me smiling.

She's on vacation right now with my mom in St.Lucia.
However before she left, she cooked some of my favourite pies and baked stuff that only she could cook like how she does and she froze them.

I usually do the cooking at home, but when she's on vacation, I don't feel to cook so I order food.
However, she wanted me to think about her when I eat her food.
And every , single day,
I thought about her while I had lunch, and smiled.

Smart girl.

@ CM imagine me going all 'awwww' when I read that

I'm a SAHM and hubby works full time. Currently, I wouldn't say that we were tight for money...but that we have to watch our pounds...we've just had an expensive vacation and moved home too...plus, we have other vacations planned and are planning to buy a house in spring...
however, I am going through a 'I'm not doing anything productive with my spare time' phase since my entire day only consists of housework or children and the net during spare time...many times in the past I've taken up stuff that I haven't pursued for too long and my husband is well aware of these random phases of mine. Yet, when I talked to him about my boredom, he understood my troubled state. When we discussed, I told him I wanted to do a new course in exercise to music. He was at first.

However, after a couple of discussions he gave me the go-ahead and I'm now doing it. It's not cheap. The fact that he obliged despite our tight budgets and despite the fact that I don't have a great track-record as a go-getter, makes me feel so grateful.

I really hope to do something productive a few hours a week once I've done this course. He does ask me everyday 'Have you managed to study today?'

My husband gave me my Valentine's Day gift early. He was so cute about it. As soon as I came home, he insisted I open it even before I got out of my work clothes. So I opened it. The box was from Macy's and it had a red ribbon on it. He bought me a wallet from my favorite designer. It matches the bag he gave me at Christmas from the same designer. Inside the wallet was a handwritten love letter which actually moved me more than the wallet. I never asked for the wallet so it was a total surprise. I just thought we were going out to dinner at a local neighborhood restaurant for Valentine's Day.

My husband made my coffee for me this morning and handed it to me with a smile on his face. Made me

Last night when I got home from work and some light shopping and picking up out daughter, he had dinner done already. Nice and thick London broil and baked potatoes.


It's the little things that make me happy!

I was stressed out yesterday coming home from my internship and when I walked inside he had cleaned up the kitchen and living room. Not only that, but dinner was on the table. He knew I was stressed out when we had talked on the phone an hour earlier, so he wanted me to have one less thing to worry about.

Well mine bought me three red roses in a beautiful glass vase. I also found out that he was looking into helping me with one of my dream jobs. Both those were pleasant suprises that made me smile.

A few nights ago I went to bed before my wife. When she came to bed she didn't realize I was awake. Snuggled in behind me, kissed me behind the ear and said. "Do you know how much I love you?"

Yesterday we were just getting on each others nerves all day long. Nothing specific, just seemed like we were both in sour moods and "off". Didn't help that we were coming home from a weekend trip and a drive that was supposed to take 3 hours ended up taking 6 when we got stuck in traffic for most of the drive.

We finally got home, much later than planned, rushed around to get everything unpacked and ready for work the next day. He put the kids to bed, and we were supposed to stay up after that to finish a few more chores, but I fell asleep on the couch while he was tending to the kids.

I woke up to him sliding in next to me on the couch. He didn't say anything, he just wrapped his entire body into mine and held my head onto his chest. We must have sat like that for the longest time, just listening to the sounds of a quiet house. I can't really describe, it was just the way he held me and knew that it was the perfect gesture to wipe away the crappiness of the day we had together. It made me smile just thinking about it again today.

My H reminds me when my favorite TV show is on, or that he recorded it and reminds me to watch it. TV boggles my mind with 8 million channels in 35 languages and 3 grades of definition. And they change the numbers every darn year!

My husband and I have had a rough couple of weeks with bills coming faster than his pay checks, him working alot of extra hours, me starting college, and his truck messing up. Well the other night i had his supper ready and waiting, made an apple pie and had just pulled everything out aroung the time he usually gets home. Only for him not to show up on time. I think ok, he is gonna be a little late, so i start a word search thing. An hour later he is out front honking the horn. I think something s wrong so i rush outside. He is smiling...? I get to the truck and see he has brought home a beautiful black lab, a ton of dog food, a pet taxi, and a tie out cable. A few days before i had mentioned i wanted another dog. But i didnt think he was paying attention because he was really into his movie. I was so excited, he told me that was my early valentines gift, and there may be something else later... So sweet.

My husband knew I wanted a blue sapphire ring for Valentine's Day, but couldn't afford the one I fell in love with, so he found a gorgeous one on a discount website for a price that he could afford. I'm just waiting for it to arrive.

And he's taking me out tonight for drinks. So, he's gonna get a real good time tonight.

Adding to previous post... The something else was a picture he has been drawing for me all week that he kept hidden in his truck. It may not be much, but i always love it when he draws things for me. The first thing he ever gave me was a huge picture of a wooden cross with a yellow rose (my favorite) and a barbed wire halo. He has his amazing moments. Both going to bed happy tonight.
