Hmmmm – Am I? A spoiled brat? Reading my last blog post, you might think I am. Let’s take a look, shall we?
All I really wanted to do was share some ideas for the men in our lives. In my past experiences and in conversations I’ve had with friends, guys actually DO want a clue! Let’s face it, we’ve all done that thing where we say “I don’t want anything, babe – as long as I have you, I’m happy.” Then, he comes home with nothing (because he believed you when you said ‘nothing’) while you’ve been subject to your friends posting pictures on facebook of the “stuff” their husbands and boyfriends got them.
In a way, it feels like rejection. They really probably don’t mean it that way – they are very literal beings, for the most part – but, it still feels that way to us women. If you haven’t noticed yet, we have a complex set of emotions. This picture is a good visual.
Make sense now?
In all honesty, I actually wouldn’t mind chocolates or flowers from my hubby. As long as he remembers that it’s a special day – and also remembers the four little girls who adore him so much – I’m great! And, you know what?, he’s usually awesome about that. Last year, he got each of our daughters a little heart-shaped box of chocolate and a stuffed animal and they were over-the-top excited and still remember it to this day. It makes me smile just thinking about it.
Like I said, I was just trying to help out and thought my friends would like to put in their two cents, as well.
So, while I have your attention, one of my husband’s cousins posted something on Facebook a while back and I would love to share it with you.
Here was Allison’s post last month:
“Gary’s anniversary gift to me…We got married on a Tuesday and on our 5th anniversary today is a Tuesday, so for the next 5 years every Tuesday I get to pull out something he loves about me! My man is amazing!”
Here’s the picture showing what he gave her…
Is that not the sweetest, coolest, most thoughtful idea ever? I love it!!! That would get my husband some “Tuesdays full-of-love” (and possibly even Wednesdays) for a long time, if you know what I mean. 😉
So, I hope you didn’t take my last post to mean that we all want jewelry or will be upset if we get the “wrong” thing. That’s not what I intended. Those of you who know me, know that.
Happy day to you!
