My Protector, My Love,
I decided to write you today. We have been through a lot in the past few years and I thought now would be a good time to write you. Life can be hard, life can get messy, and we both know how messy it can get.

52 Reasons Why I Love You

As I was flipping through Pinterest a thought came over me. You see people doing the 52 cards of Reasons Why I Love You for Valentine’s Day, but I figured I would make it into a post. I don’t think I tell him enough reasons why I love him, and maybe 52 Reasons will be just the icing on the cake. I know our marriage isn’t like the top-notch, everyone has flaws, and everyone makes mistakes, but he is my husband and I will always love him. Okay, enough of me rambling on.

Thankful Thursday

My Thankfuls this week…

This week I am thankful for a lot of things.
I love spending time with my hubby even though he will be going back to swing shift in about 2 months, give or take.
I, also, love the times I have with my daughter.
Seeing her communication skills fly through the roof in just a year. I can not wait to see how far she can go.
The able to talk to my husband and talk about our future and what we want in life.
I am thankful for heaters, because in Georgia it feels like your toes will fall off at night. Georgia weather is so weird. 70s one day, then cold front moves through and its like waking up to being in Canada, lool just kidding but just saying.
Example:
Today it is nice and pretty outside, wear your swimsuit folks!
Tomorrow, You will need a scarf, snow boots, mittens, and an ice pick.
In 2 Days, Tornado Warnings, Rain… Flooding is possible
The weekend… Blizzard warnings in effect for your area.

LOL! That is just an example, that’s not happening right now, but it sure does feel like it!
What are you thankful this week?

He’s not paying attention

In the mist of the day I told hubby on his way to work to pick up some fish sticks, ketchup, snack, and a movie. He would call me back ever so often and ask if we need this or need that, I would eventually tell him yes or no, or add another thing to the list.

Well, he gets home with like 6 bags of groceries.. I didn’t think he was going for food for the rest of the week. I just thought he could make a quick drop by and get what we needed for tonight, since he is off this coming week.

Anyway, he puts the movie on the counter, as I sit in the chair and we go back and forth about the movie.

Me: So, what is it?
Hubby: Well, You will like it, it has one of your fav Actors in it.
Me: okkkk, who?
~We are having the conversation as Jade is laughing, and hubby is washing something in the sink~
Hubby: Well, She is your favorite actor..
Me: Matthew? … (hints I didnt hear the her part) lol
Hubby: Her/Female Your Favorite as you state in your blog
~bells go off~
Me: Ohhhhhh!!! Jennifer…
Hubby: Yeahhh there you go LOL
~laughing~

So, tomorrow we will be watching Just Go With It

and just so maybe, Hubby does pay attention 😉
