My wonderful Darling Husband was nice enough to take on some of the thank-you note writing after our wedding last weekend. I was thrilled that he agreed, but then I read some of his notes. To be fair, I told him they should be at least 4 sentences, so maybe he just couldn’t think of anything. Here’s a lovely sample of his work:
Dear (Groomsmen/fraternity brother),
Thank you so much for the gravy boat. We’re going to make some kick-ass gravy. It was awesome seeing you last weekend. Thanks for being in the wedding party.
Upon further review, it came to my attention that four separate thank you notes he wrote included the phrase “kick-ass”. Two of them were also written upside down on the wrong side of the card.
Did any of your DHs have similar struggles in thank you note writing?

Haha looks like DH’s. I gave him his pile after I got sick of writing them, so at that point I said screw it, he can write it, I don’t care what he writes, at least they’re getting the card.

@MM423: Bahaha “Two of them were also written upside down on the wrong side of the card.” Bless his heart for trying, haha.
I’m not sure that mine has ever written a real thank you card, that’s usually my domain. He’ll help me with the wording, but I’m the guy who puts the thing right way up and grabs the pen. 🙂

Haha! I’m pretty sure I have something similar in my future.

@MM423: I love how you wrote this! You are so funny! 🙂 I’m just trying to get the darn things in the first place. My poor Darling Husband has been battling his printer, wanting to print out each card with a special design on them that he created. It is beautiful, and I appreciate his effort, but I hate seeing him so stressed out and wish we could just buy a box at the store and be done with it. We’re about to start writing ours out though. You’ve inspired me to sneak in the phrase “kick-ass” in each card. 😉

I say good enough. Unless you truely think its not appropriate like kick ass to old conservative christian grandma, leave it as is. He was specific and thanked them, that really is the idea of the thank you. And, the reciever will KNOW it’s him…

@MM423: lol! cute! (DH didn’t really have “issues…” I have to admit that I greatly appreciate his attempts at TY-note writing, they were all just a bit…brief for my liking!)

That’s really funny. Might not be appropiate for your aunt and uncle but it’s sure great for his friend/groomsmen.

Lol these are hysterical.
My female fiancee would most defientely write the same thing.
Some people just don’t get it / haven’t done it before. Haha.

That’s hilarious! I’m sure people won’t be as picky about what is written when they see it’s coming from him though.
