The only one I made my husband write was the one to his grandmother (she kindof frightens me).  Otherwise they all would have been two sentences long!

Oh my goodness… that is actually really funny!! 🙂 I could totally see my FH doing something like that.  Good thing you found them in time!!

Yeah – Darling Husband didn’t write anything thank yous because I refused to have them be just 2 sentances long (which is all he would write).  Plus, his handwriting is terrible!

Haha – even before the wedding my husband kept saying how he would write half the thank you’s and what a great thank-you note writer he is (which he probably is) HOWEVER, his handwriting makes doctor’s writing look like calligraphy.

Seriously, we have been together 4 years and I can’t read his writing. I can decipher letters here and there, but hardly ever get whole words. When we started the thank-you’s, all I could think was “honey, I can’t let you write any; no one will be able to read yours!” 😉

Honestly, we’re both so exhausted after work and we had SO many Thank You notes to write, I didn’t even read most of the ones Darling Husband wrote. He did his family and friends, I did mine and we both signed every one.

@moderndaisy: I did make Darling Husband individually sign his name to all of them too.  I think it looks way nicer / more personal.  Plus – after I spent all the time writing all of them, I figured he could at least sign his name over and over!

This is super funny! For normal thank yous (like for birthday or Christmas gifts), I dictate to my bf what the thank yous should say and he writes them in his own handwriting (which is atrocious scribble). Otherwise who knows what would end up written on the cards!

My Darling Husband wrote them for his side, and he did a wonderful job. He had no excuse, because his handwriting is nicer than mine!

For the ones to his friends where he wanted to be a little “silly”, he wrote out a nice thank-you, and then inserted a separate piece of paper where he wrote out the personal jokes. I thought that was a good compromise.

I think the one to his friend is adorable!

I think my fiance is hoping to pull the “I’m a grad student! I’m too busy!” act with me on these, but there is no. way. that is going to work.  Maybe if I threaten to send something like that to his grandparents, he’ll buck up and do his half of the work!
