Does your husband/FI/SO ever do something, just a little thing, that makes you absolutely swoon? Like, just because of that little gesture you feel like you’re falling in love with them all over again?
My husband did something like that this weekend and I just had to share. Saturday night he went out for drinks with his BIL. They’re big beer nerds and went to a local brewery to hang out and drink some craft beers while I stayed home and did absolutely nothing (it was glorious). Anyway, the next morning the hubby excitedly tells me he has something to show me. I’m thinking he bought a new beer stein or something (which is what usually happens after a brewery trip) but instead he pulls out a little baby onesie from his bag with the brewery’s logo on it. I’m currently almost 4 months pregnant with our first child and this just made my heart melt. While he was drinking and having fun with his BIL, he was still thinking about me and our baby. Maybe it’s the pregnancy hormones, but it was just the sweetest thing. I guess baby gifts right now are the way to my heart!
Anyway, I know it’s something so little and silly, but it just made me love him even more. What has your SO done lately to make you feel all mushy inside?

There is one weekend every summer where there are tons of events in my hometown, one of which is a 5k. We’d decided not to do the run this year with my family for a few different reasons, but then the night before DH went to register because he wanted to “keep the family tradition going.” He went to the run and out to breakfast afterward, took pictures with everyone, etc. it made me so happy to see that was important to him and it wasn’t even his own family!

My boyfriend went on a cruise to Alaska with his parents and didn’t have the best service while he was out there so I didn’t get to talk to him while he was gone. One morning, I woke up in the middle of the night because I always do and I checked my phone to see what time it was and I noticed I had a text from him. Of course, I read it and it said that he missed me, he couldn’t wait to see me when he got back, and that as soon as he saw that he had service, he couldn’t wait to reach out. It was 4 a.m. where I was and I just laid in bed, giddy as a school girl about it.
Also, whenever he winks at me. It’s so cute and I just melt inside at the attempt (he’s really awful at it most of the time…)

I had a really stressful weekend. I came home to DH last night, he had done the grocery shopping, cleaning, a load of laundry AND he made me a burger patty with bacon and grilled peppers. Then we sat down and watched GOT. It was just what I needed.
Love that man.

I woke up yesterday to him doing the dishes. (He’s in the middle of a huge deadline for work so the fact that he wasted his time washing instead of writing because he knows I hate doing the dishes).
Then he made me coffee and warmed up the waffles and berry compote we made together on Saturday morning. It really is the little stuff that shows how much they care.
My friend from high school lost her husband over the weekend. Devastating to say the least. She won’t know why until the autopsy, and she was left with a rainbow baby as well. He knew they were pregnant for less than a week before he suddenly died.
I say this because it’s the small things we will miss most. Hold those husbands tight.

My fiance grabs a drink for me when he gets one for himself even though I didn’t ask. He more often than not grabs my favorite drink when he’s grocery shopping. When we were at a family picnic, I had left my phone on the picnic table and it started to rain and I realized my I had left my phone out, but he had grabbed it out of the rain for me before I went back to grab it.
I LOVE digiorno supreme pizza without pepperoni. When he makes it for me, it melts my heart that he remembers to pull the pepperoni off.
It seriously is just the little things that make life so sweet!

I had to work some crazy hours over the past few weeks, and I always text DH if I work late so he doesn’t worry. One night after I texted him, he showed up with homemade dinner for me. It was so sweet!
I also just started WW and yesterday, I found him pouring water from measuring cups into my favorite wine glass so we could know how much to fill the glass if I want wine. It made me laugh, but it showed how much he wants to support me.

teacher-bee-in-the-sea : That is so very sad 🙁
I got a flat tire on Saturday afternoon (scraped up against a curb that randomly had metal piping protruding from it). My husband was super great, didn’t get mad, did all the work to put on the spare tire, and has handled nearly all of the logistics of calling the tire places and getting a new tire put on. He’s always really great about being handy and also taking charge on getting things fixed.

ellyd23 : I haven’t been in touch with her except via social media over the 10+ years since graduation but having just gotten married in May it is really hitting me hard. I cried to my DH this morning when I read the news. So very very sad.

llevinso : I telecommute for my job in our old town (3 hours away), but have to go work there 3 days a month. Earlier this summer, we had a bunch of stuff going on which caused me to have to go back and forth between our old and new town multiple times in a few weeks, and I was super stressed out and exhausted from traveling. I came home to a clean house, all of the laundry and dishes caught up, dinner cooked and on the table, and my favorite beer waiting for me.
I was dreading having to do all of that stuff when I got home, because he had a busy week at work too and I knew he wouldn’t want do any of it.. but he did! It made me really happy and made me feel appreciated (even if he did ruin two of my shirts doing laundy.. hah)

Sometimes he picks me up from work, and it’s not a big deal, just says hi to my coworkers downstairs, comes up, knocks on my wall-less door, I grab my bag, and we go to the car and go home. I never thought much of it.
Then one of my coworkers pointed out that when her husband picks her up from work, he sits in the parking lot and texts her to come out, and she thinks it’s adorable that FH actually comes in to collect me physically, wants to see what I’ve been doing if I’ve been doing anything interesting, checks in with everyone else, looks at the new displays, etc.
And now that I have thought about it once, I never stop thinking about it, and now every time he comes to pick me up from work and shows up at my door instead of just texting me from the parking lot, just so he can hold my hand going down the stairs, it makes me smile.

There are lots of little things that make my heart swoon–giving our cat her medicine twice a day, jumping my car without complaint or asking him (I had left in the lights), vacuuming the floors while I’m at work, picking up bottled water for me without me asking. I love the little things that show he cares and that he’s thinking of my needs.

I love the messages he leaves for me on the glass shower door 🙂 They’re cute and really show me he loves me even when he’s doing the mundane 😛
