This week we were given a couple of different options:
1. Tell us about some of the things that you and your husband do to just have fun together!
I think I'll do them all since I missed last week with my family in town, my son's baptism and the whole lia sophia hostess event. It was a busy weekend! Anyway, let's get back to business...
(The motel in Vegas that we had to crash at for one night.)
3) Our Valentine's stories especially make me smile and giggle because we have some good memories of celebrating that day. As far as gifts are concerned, we usually say we're not going to do them and then I usually cheat! I can't help it because I love to surprise him. I used to be a lot better at those surprises than I am now. I wouldn't say my gifts are anything original or creative, but he sure does love them ;) I remember our first Valentines day. I had hearts leading from the front door to the bedroom, so he was instantly surprised when he got home from work/school. I had a "little" gift with a note waiting for him on the bed. Now, now, this is a family site, so keep your thoughts clean! It wasn't me waiting, but a little something I used to be able to fit into ;) I wasn't even home, but I had it all set up so he would be SURPRISED. Did I mention I love to surprise him with gifts and I know he loves that! My husband rocks because he always loves and accepts my gifts no matter what they are, great or small!
(Our very first place. We were poor college students at the time.)
**So maybe you don't want to brag about your spouse or you wonder why I like to. It's the concept of "good gossip". I had a really awesome class in college, it was one of my family relations classes, and I remember a lecture my professor gave about "good gossip". That's what he called it anyway. It's basically spreading good news or good things about other people and that news eventually gets back to the person you're referring to. How many times have you been around a "man bashing" or "spouse bashing" session? How do you think the ones being bashed on felt about it when they found out--if they found out? I propose that we do just the opposite. Not that we have bragging sessions or "one up" sessions, but that we talk about all those great things that our spouses do. Eventually the information gets back to them and it makes them feel good or appreciated. That's the idea behind "good gossip". Don't you love it when someone says something like "I've heard great things about you"?
After saying great stuff about your spouse, how do you feel about them. You better believe this post brings back a lot of good memories and reminds me of how much I love my husband and how blessed I am to have him!!!
