What’s your honey done lately to make you swoon?
Some of you may remember that about a month ago I gave J a big task: narrow down our list of potential venues, call them all and get quotes more info than their websites offer, etc. I HATE placing calls – I hate ordering pizza on the phone, I hate calling my mom, I hate making business calls. I hate the phone. So I just kind of assumed J would fudge it or have his mom do it. Turns out he called every place on the list (even the ones with rockin’ websites) to chat with the coordinators and get a feel for them. What a great guy!!!
Hehe… what he doens’t know yet is that he’s now in charge of all phone calls during this planning process… mwahaha… I have the whole I-live-out-of-the-country thing as a good backup excuse too 😉

This may sound dumb, but just yesterday while I was working on a project, he cleaned up the kitchen and made the bed. Not that he doesn’t do that stuff usually, but what I do is give him a to-do list, and he did this without being asked! That he took an active interest in the cleanliness of our home was soooooooo fantastic!

i hate the phone too! my fi has been awesome, he contacts every single vendor, even when i don’t ask because he knows how stressed out a little phone call makes me. people keep telling him that grooms have it easy, i always correct them.

This is rediculous, but after christmas we were headed to pick up the dog (always, my girlfirends dog, or KLP’s dog) from the farm he was staying at. Someone called and asked what he was up to.
“Going out to ___ to pick up my dog.”
little things like that… 🙂

He bought a new MacBook Pro for me, to replace the laptop that was stolen by heinous, awful, horrible people on 12/30.
Even more swoon-worthy, though: He called my cat “*our* cat” and has finally admitted defeat and lets her sleep on his lap while he plays XBox – it’s adorable. Don’t get me wrong – the laptop is fantastic. But my heart absolutely melts when I look over and our(!) cat is curled up on his lap.
And I totally feel you pain re: phone hatred. I refer to it as “phone technology” and view it as something to be avoided as much as possible.

@KLP2010 – Ha! I was writing my post, and when I was finished, I read yours. Awesome 🙂

I love all the little day to day things that he does. Like, it’s cold outside, and he always walks the dogs so I don’t have to go out. A few weeks ago, I hurt my knee, he took care of me. He rushed home to be with me, and he took care of everything around the house. He has an amazing work ethic, he works full time and goes to school full time for nursing, and he maintains a 4.0, because he wants to help make a better life for us.
And, if all of that weren’t good enough, he told me the other day, “I really appreciate everything you are doing for the wedding. I am so excited about it, and I think you’re doing a great job.”

Its definitely the little things he does consistently that get me. Taking out the trash at my house without being asked (we don’t live together)? Pretty much the hottest thing he could do for me hehe. Also this weekend I made a ton of food for NYE and he cleaned the kitchen.
Plus, every time he walks in the door he plays with my dog in a way that is totally *him*. I think its so freakin cute because I just imagine that he’ll be the best dad ever.

The little things and unexpected things. A few days ago it was something like 16 degrees F not including the wind chill, and I was leaving his place in the middle of the night. He said he would go out to warm up my car…and not only did that, but snuck out to the gas station to fill up the tank as well. He’s put Rain-X on my windshield without me knowing too.
There are so many other things; cooking meals for us and always taking the check because I don’t have income right now, giving me shoulder massages as we go down the escalator at the mall, giving me massages pretty much every time I sit down.
Last Valentine’s Day he surprised me when he showered me with rose petals as I took a shower!
Sigh. He’s so wonderful.

Every now and again he leaves me cute little love notes in my lunch or in my wallet. He addresses them to me as Mrs. XXX or one of his nicknames for me and signs then with one of my nicknames for him. I’ve got a cute little collection of them 🙂

These are great! I’m so glad I’m not the only one who loves the small things 🙂

Absolutely the little things. Our morning schedules are very different (I work full time and he’s a student), but he always gets up to make me lunch and see me out the door. He also takes care of everything laundry and dry-cleaning related, even if that means going out in 20F weather to ensure to pick up clothes that I need for the office.

@HunnyBear- Mine does that for me too, but leaves them in odd places like in my shoes or on the inside of the toilet seat because he knows that’s the first place I go in the morning.
To the OP, he is always unexpectantly surprising me, like moving my car in the garage in the middle of the night when I’m asleep so there won’t be frost on my windows.
I know this may sound odd, but I also like the way he’s so protective over me. Not in an over-protective, jealous, controling sort of way, but in a “you better respect my girlfriend” kind of way. He doesn’t let people get away with rudeness towards me. I like that.
He’s also always surprising me with little treats like my favorite ice cream, a new squishy pillow, or even something as little as my favorite toothpaste for my bathroom. (we have seperate bathrooms at his house–just easier).

Teddy is always ready for work before I am…so he always makes the coffee makes my sandwich…finds my keys for me (i always loose them) even makes my oatmeal for me…even though he only likes having a breakfast bar in the morning…definately the little things 🙂

He tells me he loves me. 🙂
I know…of course he should tell me he loves me, but I must admit that even going on 7 years, I still get a little butterflies when he says something as simple as “I really really love you.” or when he texted me the other night saying ‘I love you to bits.” A day doesn’t go by without him telling me he loves me multiple times, but each time I hear it I know it’s true & I feel special & very loved.
This is from the same girl that used to get irritated when one of my exes would tell me he loved me multiple times, and would actually be like “Okaaaay. That’s enough.” LOL
I guess it is different when it’s “the one”.
