Hey guys! I just wanted to get a quick post up tonight in celebration of the holiday of love! Or chocolate if you're into binge eating that kind of thing. Believe it or not (and I've said this in a few other previous blog posts) but I am not the worlds biggest fan of cliche events/holidays. I have no idea why that is but for some reason they just aren't my thing, and Valentines Day has always fallen into that category. I think a lot of that has to do with my birthday being two days prior but either way, I much rather sit at home snuggled up with McHandsome than be jam packed into a restaurant full of a bunch of other couples who really rather be home binge watching Netflix.
So as you guessed it, Hubs and I (okay mainly myself because he's really down for anything) decided it was going to be a relaxing night with some italian takeout! Throughout the day as we were on our 8th random "I Miss You" phone call of the day, I started thinking about all the little things we both do for each other to make sure the other person always knows they're loved. I decided to write a post with 5 little things I always do that leaves a smile on my husbands face!
I cannot tell you how many little love notes I've left for my husband, however he can. He has saved every single one, and has about 5 in his wallet alone! It may seem like such a simple child like thing to do, but who doesn't feel all warm and fuzzy inside when they see someone telling them how cool they think they are?
I roll deep with doing this. Whenever I go out to get one thing, I can tell you that almost 95% of the time I will come back with something for my man, even if he says he doesn't want anything. 4% of the time I will not come back with a surprise is because he already has it and 1% is if the store doesn't have it. Hubs LOVES energy drinks, so I like to come back with one for him and have it in the fridge so later when he gets up he's like "Where the hell did this come from?!" while I'm just sitting back like, yes. I know I rock.
Waking up sucks. Doesn't matter if you slept in until noon or if it's 6:00am. It still sucks. Help your significant others morning start off less crappy. Plus if he didn't find the drink you hid in there from the night before... bonus points.
Men have this weird tunnel vision with video games. I will NEVER understand it and I have at least one "Dude, give me attention" moment a week but every once in a while... I just let it happen. This past Saturday Andrew thought it would be a wonderful idea to stay up ALL NIGHT playing Xbox. All night. Well, Sunday was my birthday which meant that he was going to have to stay up all day too because you kinda cant sleep until 5pm when it's your wifes birthday. I knew once 3am rolled around that he was gonna hate himself the next day but he was happy. He was in the zone. His friends were online. He was enjoying life. That's what mattered. That stupid little smile when he drifts just right on Forza is what mattered. Did he end up exhausted and hating himself by 4pm the next day? Yes, yes he did.
You know when your man randomly walks up and kisses you on the forehead and your heart melts into a million gooey pieces? Yeah, guys do that too. I'm sure they wont describe it that way but they do love it. Take the time to randomly show some affection. I like to walk up behind McHandsome while he's in his xbox twilight zone and just wrap my arms around him and kiss his cheek. It never fails. It doesn't matter what he's doing in his game, he will stop for a second and give me a huge smile and then a huge kiss. Not just does it make someone feel extra loved but it also reminds them that you are their person and why they love that you are their person.
