Best Hubby Award


On Wednesday night, Andrew won the all time BEST Hubby Award. How... you ask??!! Well, let me tell you! I've always known that I have a sweet and caring husband, but he went above and beyond. I had somewhat of a long day at work and was SO ready to go home and relax. I pulled into the driveway and headed down to our "rabbit-hole" when Andrew rushed out and told me to go back out to the car and wait for a few minutes. I obeyed, thinking that there was probably a mess in the apartment that he wanted to tidy up before I got a look at it.

I waited in the car... not really understanding what was going on and then he popped out and said I could come in. He was acting kind of sneaky and like he was up to no good... again, I thought he was making a mess inside. When I got downstairs and walked into our apartment, I was surprised with a candle-lit room, a homemade dinner on the table, fresh flowers and our song playing in the background. Of course I "ooohed" and "awwwed" and then he started dancing with me in our kitchen. We sat down to eat dinner which was so yummy! He prepared sausage primavera pasta and then fresh mozzarella with tomatoes on basil topped bread. SO GOOD! That's right, my man can cook! AND... then he told me that their was a movie playing, so we watched a new movie that he rented (Eagle Eye) and to top it off- we had mint chocolate chip ice cream... which is my latest favorite flavor!

Mind you Ladies... this was no special occasion... or even an apology. Just a typical Wednesday that turned in to the most romantic evening! I have never been treated so royally and especially taken by surprise.

I am so grateful to have such a thoughtful husband who does things... just because. What a man.

Andrew, Andrew, Andrew [sigh]... when you get out here to Oregon, we're gonna have to have a little chat. You see, when you do things like that, you make the rest of us mediocre husbands look BAD. No need to raise the bar too high, right? It's the unwritten husband-rule: do nothing, and your wife will expect nothing. Do something, and she'll expect MORE. (PS: Don't mention any of this to Rebecca. :-)
