Dear Husband,

(I think I might make "Dear Husband," a weekly thing. Apparently on Wednesdays, because that's when I'm doing it. It'll give me an excuse to talk about my hubby (good things and bad) and post pictures of him (cute and embarrassing.) So enjoy!)

Dear Husband,
A few nights ago I told you that I'd be going out with my girlfriends on Monday. I don't know if you're aware of this, but you made a slight sad face, and acted mopey for a few minutes. This made me feel special because I felt like you were sad that I was going to be away for a few hours.

When I came home from a fun night with my friends, I had an amazing surprise waiting for me. I knew you had been planning on doing some yard work to get ready for our new patio to be put in. But to be honest, I figured you'd rush through it and hook up with your Xbox for the rest of the night, to live your dream of being a hockey star vicariously through little cartoon men that don't really exist. Boy was I wrong. Not only did you clean out the patio spot, but you mowed the lawn as well.

But that wasn't all! You were so excited to show me that you had done work inside as well! All on your own, you decided to wash out our kitchen sink and clean the stove top (I promise to never let it get that gross again.) Then....YOU FINALLY PUT YOUR LAUNDRY AWAY!!!!! It was a joyous moment for me. The cutest part was how proud of yourself you were (and I hope I showed you how much I appreciated all of it by the millions of kisses I bestowed upon you.)

So I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all the chores you did without even being asked to. It was definitely sweet, and you earned Major Husband Bonus Points for it. I love you!

Love, Lisa

P.S. If I go out with my friends more often, will this become a regular occurrence?  :)


  1. this is a great idea! All the things I wish I could say but don't. Does your hubby read your blog?
    I don't think mine even knows I have one :)

  2. He actually DOES read my blog all the time. At first I was really nervous about some of the things I've written, but he actually thinks its really funny (thankfully!)
