I get weekly allergy shots. Last weeks caused a really bad reaction. Weds night is my weekday sleep over at SO and it happened to be the day of my shots. So cooked me dinner, reapplied ice to my arm, and carried me to bed when the Benadryl kicked me in the butt. That he is willing to take such good care of me shows me that he really cares about me and will be a great caretaker someday
What about you? What is something that your SO did /said this past week that shows that he is the one for you?
(if this post gets alot of replies, maybe this can be a weekly Monday thing to get us excited for the week ahead!!)

Am posting here since you pointed out that my posts are usually sad. =P He spent several hours helping me with some work I have to get done (after he finished work), and stayed awake past 1 am several nights to get it done even though he had work the next day. And he gets absolutely nothing out of it, and I was too tired to finish it myself, so he let me sleep and stayed awake working on it instead.
This should be weekly!

@MariaW: you were my inspiration!! and its not just you….so many posts are sad. we also need to celebrate the good, even if its as small as taking out the trash for us cause we dont want to do it ourselves 🙂

My SO wakes me up every morning by rubbing my back.
Yesterday I had to finish up on a school project before we went to a potluck dinner at one of my colleagues’ house; SO made pancakes for me for breakfast, then made this super-awesome mac & cheese for the potluck.

We went shopping for our bed yesterday (our first major purchase as a couple!) and he was so willing to make sure it was something I’d like. I just thought he was really sweet.

It’s been a little over a week ago but I’ll post anyway. Recently I’ve been at my wits end with school and work. I had four tests to study for last week, I was struggling with the decision to quit my job and I was stressed about bills and falling behind on the housework, just an all around bad week. I had to work a late night and wasn’t happy about it, but when I came home from work, FH had cleaned the house, done the laundry, cooked dinner and dessert and had it all set up with candles, wine and music. After dinner we watched one of my favorite movies and I got a foot and back massage. It was wonderful.
It was the sweetest thing, and it meant more because FH isn’t the type for romantic things like this. It meant so much to me that he took the time to put that together.

DH hung out with me in my studio to keep me company the entire weekend while I was working on making things! It’s pretty much the most awesome thing he could have done. <3<3<3

He bought me a pair of Sperry’s, since I’ve never had a pair. 🙂
I have chronic pain in my knees, so it’s really hard for me to find a nice pair for shoes for me to wear that aren’t tennie shoes, but are comfortable. So he got me some Sperry’s so that I can be comfortable and look nice at the same time. I love them! And they’re super comfy. ;3

SO has been incredibly sweet the last few weeks. I have been studying for my grad school entrance test and he has cooked dinner every night, walked the dog, cleaned, and kept me sane.
I am taking it this week and i’m pretty sure he’s more excited than I am to be done studying.

My hubby went out drinking with a friend saturday evening. When he came home late (and drunk) he told me: I love you. He was making sure I am awake to listen to him and he said again: I love you…. <3

I brought a big box of stuff to Goodwill last Friday and freaked out because I thought I accidentally put an old photo of my grandparents as newlyweds in there. He called the store, then drove 20 minutes there to search it himself 🙂 I didn’t even ask him to.

This isn’t something he did for me exactly, just a cute story I thought of when reading this thread.
We went to a cottage with a group of friends this past weekend. While we were all sitting on a dock talking & drinking red wine my FI was quietly taking a bunch of photos. Eventually he looks up and says to everyone ‘look how beautiful my FI is’
The girls were so floored, it was super cute. He NEVER says stuff like that in front of people. (it ain’t easy being cheesy!)

He gets up with the puppy every morning and lets me get the extra 15 minutes of sleep 🙂
