Monday

Remind Me of This, the Next Time He Makes Me Mad, K?

I woke up the other day with a pounding headache.


Not exactly the best way to start the day.

I have a long history of neck issues and I'm a whiner.

So, I was pretty much a barrel of sunshine by 7:30 a.m.

I took a hot bath, got dressed and fixed breakfast for the kids (hey, unwrapping granola bars counts. Don't judge me).

My hubby left for work and I took Ibuprofen.

I'm telling ya'll, I was feeling blah.  And not just because of the headache.  It was a Monday.

But as you know, the show must go on.  So, I filled up the kiddie pool outside and sent the kids upstairs to change out of their pajamas. I put on my clown suit and readied for Act I.

The phone rang. It was my hubby.  He'd been gone about 15 minutes.

"Hey, there was a package on the bench on the front porch when I left. Are you expecting something?"

"No, Really?"

"Yeah, it has your name on it.  Gotta go."

I walked to the front door and can I just say if I ever doubted that man's love for me, I never will again?


Yeah. He gets me. 

He knew a large Chick-Fil-A sweet tea would help. Call me silly. But his simple gift spoke volumes to me.  Knowing he was rushing to get to work, and taking the time to bring me my favorite mood food, meant the world to me. 

I love that man.

And you know what?  My head didn't hurt nearly as bad .

Nothing beats a Chick-Fil-A sweet tea. Having it delivered by your husband is just the icing on the cake! Take care, Julie

That is the sweetest, most romantic thing I've seen in a long time.

Oh my gosh-
I LOVE HIM TOO.

what a man.
COuld he like give a seminar or something that I could send MY husband to? I will pay and everything. Nothing fancy. Like a bar-b-que in your yard or something. Just where your husband sorta lectures mine for a while? Thanks that would be great.

Crayl said...

That is seriously so sweet. (pun intended)
It's moments like those, when great clarity of love shows up, that really makes me smile.

ChristiS said...

That just plain ol rocks! He deserves a big hug and kiss.

cathy | mommy motivation said...

Ahhh! I love this story. I so get you. My headache would be lessened by thoughtful somethings too. :)

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

That is so stinkin' sweet!

I am Boymom said...

Ummm, WOW! My husband would ask me to go get HIM one, even with my headache! Something about his mom doing EVERYTHING for him until he was 25 years old. Anyway, yay for your hubby! He's a keeper!

Heather said...

Awww!!! How sweet is that?!!?

Loraine said...

Sweet Tea ~ Sweet Love ~ Sweet Husband!

Hope you feel better.

nosmallthing said...

I LOVE this! What a great guy... What a great story. Hope you're feeling better after that sweet tea.

Jenn said...

That was so thoughtful and sweet! I'm sure it helped you with your day so much. It's amazing how those little gestures can help so much.

CMartin21 said...

Dr. Laura always says that a man with a good wife will swim through shark-infested waters to bring her lemonade...obviously you're doing something right!

Alyce said...

Aww..that was soo sweet. Its times like that that you fall inlove all over again...when they actually THINK of those things on their own. My hubby will occasionally bring me a coke or pepsi when he knows I NEED one.
Have a GREAT day...I'm going to try!

imadramamama said...

Seriously, that's one of the sweetest, most romantic things I've heard in a long time.

He's a keeper, that one!

The Fritz Facts said...

What a sweet man you have!! File it away for when it is needed.

Dawn said...

Very, very sweet! (Umm... speakin' of your hubby, not the tea!)

On a serious note from a migrain sufferer... caffeine will help with a bad headache.

See one more good excuse (I mean "reason") to down the sweet tea!!!

Sarah said...

Aww that is so sweet! He's a keeper, for sure!!

P.S. He loves you... said...

Well written and well provided for aren't you?!

LifeatTheCircus said...

What a sweetie... he def knows how to speak your language. I've got a keeper too and when they do things like that doesn't it just rock your world? Enjoy your man and your tea!

marky said...

that is the sweetest thing I have heard in a long time!!

Janis said...

Sounds like a wonderful hubby....What a great guy! :) Hope you're feeling better! :)

Jen said...

Bless his heart.
xox

Memarie Lane said...

Awww. Brad will get me little surprises like that but he always expects complete and utter recognition and gratitude for DAYS.

Meritt said...

OH MAN!!!

Ok. I am sooooooo going to show my husband this post.

When he wakes up.

And is rushing off to work.

LOL.



Mine sucks in the 'doing little things because I love you' department.

He's lucky I fall into his icy blue eyes every time I look at them. ;)

HB said...

That is the greatest! Not only did he bring you sweet tea from a place that knows how to make tea, but his delivery is waaay sweet.

What a gift he is. Yea!

Wendy said...

That was so stinkin sweet!!! Better hang on to him!!

Lisa said...

How awesome of your husband to do that for you. You are one blessed woman.

3boys247 said...

Wow, that was so sweet of him. what a great guy!

Jai said...

That is so sweet, very sweet and not just the tea. Badum pum ...

I WILL remind you of his thoughtfulness if you need it later in the year or even next week. :)

Suzie said...

Aww that is so sweet and thoughtful

mamajil said...

How great is that!!!!
Great story!!! I love to hear thoughtful hubby stories!!I love it when my hubby shows up with a surprise cup of Starbucks.....

Jennifer said...

That was so sweet of him! Now how do I get my hubby to realize that is romantic??

Favaunt said...

What a man! Not only does he get you, he thinks of you. That speaks volumes.

Amy said...

What a wonderful gesture- you are blessed with a great husband! :)

mommagurl32 said...

Aww...so jealous right now! What a sweetie.

gina said...

Because your heart healed it. What a sweet man.


ps. Can I just tell ya- I love those summer shots on the bottom of your page!

Colleen said...

That's awesome. Real love is when hubbies bring you sweet tea - or in my case, a gyro & chocolate malt. *swoon*

traci said...

before my hubby got different hours he worked at night, got home at 7am just as I started my home daycare routine....EVERY morning he brought me m coveted 7-11 coffee that is 90% coffee and 10% vanilla cappicuino. The moms bringing their kiddos would catch it and think he was the neatest man ever...He is! Its the small things...right?

kelly said...

That was so sweet! He's surely a keeper! :-)

Lisa J said...

Oh how sweet, you should clone him and sell the others, you would make a fortune. He sounds like a great guy, heck, doesn't sound like it, he proves it. But you might want to keep that your little secret so he doesn't get the "big head" huh? Hugs for you and HIM.

Cheri-Beri said...

Diamonds? Pearls? Nah, just a few simple things are what really send me over the edge - in a good way. And my man knows what they all are. Sonic tea, Starbucks iced latte . . . just the little stuff that means he knows me so well. Any joker could buy a gigantic diamond and impress anyone. It's the little things that tell me I'm completely known (and loved) that mean the world.

I like your husband, btw!

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

Awwww! What a sweetheart.

Bina said...

I'm so jealous! That is one the sweetest, and most romantic things I've heard in a long time! Something that simple, meaning so much.

I wish my husband would "get" things like that!

Lisa Knight said...

AWWWWWWW. That is so my language.

Unwrapping granola bars doesn't count as making breakfast??? Or was that hot fudge poptarts... I can never remember!

THopgood said...

Could you please have your husband call MY husband.

You know...he could probably go into business like Will Smith did in "Hitch" and give hubbies some pointers.

D... said...

This is absolutely the sweetest thing I've read in awhile I adore simple, thoughtful, love gifts like that. You lucky woman!

Luke said...

I am a terrible husband.

...after reading your blog, perhaps I'll learn one day.

~Luke

Anissa Mayhew said...

Oh, THAT is the sweetest thing ever! If you ever decide you're tired of him, we can use him over here. My hubs might take offense, but he'll get used to it.

jOni lAnE said...

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome!!!!! I love sweet gestures, they mean more to me than fancy gifts. It's the time and effort that make it so beautiful. You are very lucky.

Carol said...

What a great husband. Can you get him to write a book and I'll buy it for my husband.

Karen said...

now that is Love with a capital L.

Heidi said...

He's a keeper!!! That is just the best. The weekend I realized my hubby was going through some stuff & I needed to be more supportive, (I'm not use to having to be that role, so it took a while to hit me over the head) anyway, so I bought him the male equivalent to a dozen roses - a 12 pack of beer.

Valarie said...

How sweet was that!!! Yep, you have a good one there. :)

Pregnantly Plump said...

What a sweet-tea!! I had to. I am that big of a dork! My husband did something similar for me yesterday, dropping by CVS on the way home to grab me some eye drops because my eyes were itching like mad. It was sweet and romantic in its own way.

Mandy said...

That is sweet tea! (I know, bad pun...but hey!)

Suzy said...

Well, I don't like tea much (although I was able to drink it at Chinese tea ceremonies last year), but I loved the story so much I added a link to it on my blog. Hope your headache is history.

Nancy said...

That is so sweet!!!! Yup. It's the little things that make life great.

Lynn said...

Oh man, that is better than dozens of roses. I love when they "get it."

T with Honey said...

That is so sweet and romantic. If Honey did that for me I would so be putty in his hands that night.

Shhh, that'll be our little secret. OK?

Happy Mommy said...

That is so sweet! I love me some sweet tea too! You have a good man!

nicole said...

That is awesome!

Although I am an embarrasment to Southerners everywhere in my preference for unsweet tea. I get it from my mom who was raised in CA.

Mrs. Querido said...

Awww...sweet love. Even better, with a practical gift! :)

Misty said...

Amazing how something so simple can change you from feeling like an overworked Cinderella to a princess. What a sweet story!

Heather said...

Awww...how sweet of him!

God bless great husbands. I have one too, and I'm very thankful.

Joy said...

That is seriously very sweet!!! I doubt my hubby would ever do anything like that. Lucky girl, you!!!

Darla @ UltraBeautyBoutique said...

What a great guy. Pretty great gal he's married to too! =)

Kssnnikkel said...

How totally sweet!

Georgetta Nextdoor said...

How very very sweet. My dear husband made apple crisp a few nights ago when I was a little too audible with my dessert cravings. :)

val said...

isn't that the BEST! My hubby surprises me every now and then too....it really makes me feel special.

Mandi said...

Oh my goodness that is the sweetest thing ever... Gotta love special hubbies!

thediaperdiaries said...

Man, I LOVe it when they do stuff like that!!

Amy said...

That's so sweet!

Shane said...

That man of yours is definitely a keeper!! :)

Jerralea said...

That's what I was going to say! "He's a keeper!"

If only all husbands knew how little it took to make their wives happy...

Your Frugal Friend, Niki said...

That was great!


Kudos to the hubs!

:)

Tami said...

That was super sweet!! Get it?!?

Muthering Heights said...

What a GUY! I think he has some major brownie points now... :)

nicole said...

That is precious. Those kinds of little gestures blow flowers and packaged chocolates out the window any day!

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

That is SO sweet!

heather said...

that has to be one of the best packages ever!!

April said...

I just found your blog. As I was reading the account of your hubby I was thrilled to know that someone else out there has a great treasure also. Sure hope your head feels better.

Lauren said...

So super beyond sweet! Love it!

Jennie said...

That's pretty stinkin' romantic!

Sharon said...

Awwwwww.....now that is SWEET!! How thoughtful that he took the time to do that for you. What a great guy!

The Arthur Clan said...

I just popped over from Amy's blog (Living Locurto) and loved the story you shared of your hubby. On the rare occasions that my husband brings me home an extra-large Diet Coke from McDonalds...I'm putty in his hands! :)

Angie in OH

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

What a fantastic gesture. Says a lot about your husband. I found you through Amy's project today. Glad I did. You husband's gesture has made me smile. Love your heading, too!
Katie

Carrie said...

Hopping over from Living Locurto.

What a sweet gesture! It's nice your husband is so thoughtful, and the way he called you--so sweet.

However, at my house, first of all, I would have probably snapped at him for not bringing the package inside before he left. I mean, come on! You saw my name on it, but you couldn't bring the dang thing inside?

And then even after seeing his sweetness, my husband would get his a$$ kicked if there was just a cup of sweet tea and no Chik-fil-A Sandwich sitting beside it!

The nearest one is 45 minutes away and I make excuses to drive nearby so I can get me some chicken sandwich lovin. Mmmmmm....

He once purposefully used our check card at Chik-fil-A on a business trip just so he could rub it in my face when I saw it online. Stinkin' bastige!!

I love him more than anything anyway...

KVC said...

It's the little things in life that mean the most.

Chick-fil-a sweet tea is the best!!

Christie said...

What a grat reminder that sometimes it's the little things that communicate the most love!
