I want to shift my mind to be more positive, since my FI has been irking me lately…just want to start a thread to share how much I do appreciate him, even though he can be such a pain in the butt sometimes!
I appreciate him because:
He took care of all the table numbers last night while I had a girls’ SATC marathon night, told me to have fun, and didn’t make me feel guilty about not being home to help with it.
He is picking up his mom from the airport an hour away to take her to my bridal shower on Saturday. (and he’s not his mom’s biggest fan).
He picked up my bridesmaids’ dresses and paid off the balance for me yesterday.
He has been planning an amazing honeymoon.

Such a nice thread 🙂
I appreciate my FI because :
He booked our honeymoon all by himself, even though I had my doubts he would get it done!
He washed all the dishes last night without me even asking.
He always brings water to bed with him for when I get thirsty in the middle of the night.
He let me watch Law & Order last night while the Stanley Cup finals were on.

I LOVE my FI because:
he’s amazing, funny, understanding.
he’s been a part of all the DIY crafts for the wedding instead of making me do it all myself like some other guys
he finished the last 30 invites so that we can have a easier evening the other day!
he’s a clean freak! 😀 He does stuff around the house, cooks, cleans, etc, some weeks more than me!
he spends his half days doing stuff/fixing things around the house so I don’t have to do it when I get out of work.

I appreciate him because:
He has been looking after me for the last week (I have been sick)
He makes me laugh and understands my quirks
He always goes out of his way to make me happy

I appreciate my hubby for:
Making me laugh when he can “tell” that I need one
Giving me shoulder rubs and back massages before bed when I’m sore
Doing dishes every night (I cook)
Being supportive of everything (right now I’m going thru a very hard time with my mother’s bankruptcy)

He rubs my feet when I’m tired after a long day at work, and brings me water, snacks, etc., when I’m vegging on the couch.
He lets me be cranky when I’m stressed or tired, and lets me vent.
He doesn’t get annoyed at my negligent home maintenance habits–like when I don’t get around to cleaning/cooking etc. because I don’t have time.

I appreciate FI for:
– going with me on Sunday to my art show and sitting with me for FIVE HOURS while I didn’t sell anything…. and not once complaining
– Not griping about actually doing half of the housework
– cracking me up pretty much every day
– being supportive of me wanting a real wedding with all the fixins’, even though he’d so much rather elope to vegas

Every day this week, he has texted me at work to ask me how my post-surgery, traumatized jaw is feeling–even when we were pissy at each other (2 days ago).

I appreciate FI because
–he put up with a few hours of shopping for an interview outfit yesterday and comforted me when i had a weeping breakdown in the middle of macy’s because nothing fit…
–he doesn’t complain when i put on Say Yes To the Dress
–he gives me back rubs on a regular basis
–he puts up with me when i’m in a bad mood and always tries to cheer me up
this was a good thread for me today, since i’m still a little peeved that he forgot our three year anniversary the other day.

The little things that I love:
– he has been genuinely invested and interested in planning the wedding with me and helping every step of the way
– he is endlessly patient even when I’m being a crab
– he takes awesome care of me when I feel sick

Awww yay. I love FH because
he bought and planted a bunch of flowers on our terrace one Saturday last month, while I was at work.
last night he got home twelve minutes before me, and managed to change his clothes, get the clothing tubs down from the storage crawl space, AND change the sheets on our bed. then he made me an egg-and-cheese sammich when I got home starving.
he is cool as a cucumber 95% of the time, in sharp contrast to my constant state of anxiety and tension. just don’t play MarioKart with him, the other 5% is LOUD.
he watches Cake Boss with me and has even admitted to liking it.

I love how he’s always up for anything. I just texted him with a list of everything I need/would like for us to do in the next 5 hours, and his response was: “Sure, love of my life. Sounds like a great plan.” Now can’t it always be that easy??

This is the perfect thread right now. My FI has been absolutely AMAZING. He is getting off work early today to go to my Dr appointment and driving me home. He has been so unbelievably supportive in a nerve racking time.

I am a teacher and I got my pink slip in May. Yesterday was my last day before summer and I was done at noon. He came home at the same time from work (which he NEVER does) to support me and take me out to eat.

This one’s cute and I just noticed it:
I drink coffee every day. He never does, he quit caffeine years ago. Every time I run out of Splenda in the big container i use every day, I wake up to find that he has refilled it for me. Every time.
