Sometimes I look around The Hive and see all the posts about how frusterated we can get with our better halves and I see the ones about how giddy the lucky ladies who marry their soul mate so I wanted to give everyone a chance to gush about their love for a while!
So Bees, share something that your SO/FI/DH/Partner has done for you in the past month that you really appreciated!
For me, it has to be how my guy has taken care of me! I’ve had mono for the past almost two weeks and I’ve just been so miserable. He’s done everything he can to make me comfortable and help me get beter faster.
How about you?

I’m crazy busy writing my PhD proposal, working and tutoring and my OH keeps doing sweet little things like having dinner ready when I get into work from a long day, buying me chocolate when I get really stressed and reading the most boring PhD proposal in the world to help me out – it’s the little things that are the best sometimes.
Also, I hope you feel better!

@kat2014: Aw, that’s so sweet!
And thank you, I’ve been much better the past two days.

PROPOSING, asking all the time about my wedding plans. He likes to be involved in everything I like so he always asks about the book I’m reading or the scarf I’m knitting and now he asked me to explain how Weddingbee works. I’m out of a job right now so he’ll pay the venue deposit all by himself, and the fact that he’s making that effort means the world to me.

@kat2014: Haha, no problem, it’s a little slow today.
@Coffee cup: That is too cute! Explaining WeddingBee to my SO was just hilarious, lol.

We’ve been going through a rough time because he’s not very romantic and I tried to tell him that it’s something that’s learned, not a personality trait (although I do think it comes more naturally to some people) and that the occasional surprise note just saying “I love you” is enough, just something to show you think about me. Then last night he really upset me by going off to a concert (which I later found out was for a band I really like and one he hadn’t even heard of) when he said he’d spend time with me and relax since I had the GRE today. So I was in an awful mood last night and he ended up coming home three hours late (I had gone to bed). Then I woke up today and he’d brought me home a dozen roses&& he wrote a really sweet note on our white board about how amazing I’ll do on the GRE and how he loves me. It was so sweet, especially since I know it’s not something he’d normally do. Even though he did piss me off ;p I can’t be mad at him anymore haha. It really helped me feel better about our relationship and like I’m not the only one going above&&beyond in the relationship.

He just knows how to make me feel better! I had the worst migraine of my life a few weeks ago and he just held me as I cried and comforted me. It was so late at night and I know he was exhausted but I was in too much pain to sleep and he didn’t want to fall asleep and have me be all alone, so he stayed up and cuddled me all night until I fell asleep.
He is so romantic, his proposal was so thoughtful and sweet, he randomly brings me roses (my fav), he definitely spoils me. 🙂
He makes me laugh all the time, he is such a goofball!
He loves my friends and my family.
He puts up with all my girly crap, being insecure, etc. He constantly assures me that I am beautiful and he loves me just the way I am.
*sniffles* I miss him now, we are long-distance for now. 🙁

@MissComicBook: I’m still getting over my mono, I know how you feel, it’s awful! I hope you are feeling better soon.
Anyways, to answer your question… he is always doing sweet little things for me that I just love. He works midnight shifts, so when he gets home at 7:30 a.m. he will sometimes bring me my favorite coffee, which makes my morning SO much better! Sometimes he uses my daughter’s bathtub crayons to write cute messages on the shower wall so I will read them when I shower in the morning. Really starts my day off great 😀 He is a very sweet and thoughtful man. I love him so much!

My parents were in town over the weekend and although he was sick he got out of bed and entertained them all weekend. He played guitar for them and sang, took them out to dinner, picked a good movie for us all to watch, took us to the flea market and the science museum and the history museum. He slept as late as he could, napped when he could and loaded up on theraflu to get through it but we all had such a great time. There is so much more, this just happens to be the most recent example. And the other stuff is kinda mushy lol. So we’ll leave it at this, I love him, he is so amazing.

My husband is the best. I have had some health issues and not been able to work, and he has helped me with my share of the bills, even though that means working more hours to make up for the money. And, he just texted me a short time ago that he is now team leader at work, which will mean a monthly bonus on top of the raise he got a short time ago, and he also has 2 apprentices working under him(he’s a mechanic). So, in the span of a month, he has gotten a ton of responsibility, and I am so proud of him. He is an amazing teacher and motivator when it comes to what he does, and I am so glad that he is getting the recognition that he’s deserved the past few years but hasn’t gotten 🙂

I hate doing dishes. And he does them. And I don’t ask. And when I get home, or go into the kitchen after dinner, they’re not there and it’s like this giant weight that’s been lifted.
Really, I never thought I’d get so excited about a guy doing dishes for me, but it’s like he knows I’m stressed about work/wedding/family/blah and he silently does these little awesome things for me.
I got lucky.

My man has stood by me during all my bouts of mood swings, etc. He went the extra mile for my b’day last week and took me out to a VERY, VERY nice and posh place for dinner ON THE LAKE! And it was just a super-romantic evening all around.
He is very nice to me in general in the way he behaves. Never screams, swears, etc. He doesn’t really get mad at me either. Let’s me do what I want. Goes along with all my kooky plans.
LITERALLY goes the extra MILES to come with me to my parents place anytime I want.

@MissComicBook: Oh feel better!! Mono is awful.
Fiance is just great. He always does the laundry, he cleans up when he knows I have been busy. He gives me a massage every night before bed. This may not seem like anything huge, but to me its all the little stuff that adds up to him being amazing!!
