Love the list, he is one lucky guy!

Kasia said...

After reading this list, I totally love your husband!!! :-) He sounds like a gem. God bless you both on Valentine's Day!

Beth said...

Sounds like a wonderful man. I love this list although I don't get #18. Did you mean hammer, axe,lead pipe?

Or does your husband have a really stinky t-shirt that he might use to scare off a burglar? Perhaps you sleep naked and he wants to help you cover up in a flash? Or perhaps I am dense today and just don't get it? Most likely that's the case.

Happy Valentine's Day, June! You always make me chuckle!

Beth... #18 "You keep a t-shirt next to the bed at night “in case of burglars.” is because my husband goes to be each night with a t-shirt on and then takes it off before he falls asleep. Each time he does this he puts it at the foot of the bed and says "in case of burglars" meaning that if a burglar came into our home he would put on his t-shirt before he went and kicked some butts.

Basically, it is just his excuse for not putting it in the hamper.

Happy V Day!

June,
Love the list. I did one, too, and it seems we love our guys for many of the same reasons. Either that or you copied my list.

love,
the Mom

the Mom said...

Cris,
He does travel a lot. Hmmmmm...interesting. Say the words "Jeopardy!" and "Dean Connery" to yours. If he nearly pees his pants laughing, we've got to have a talk.

that was Sean Connery. Not only am I sharing a husband with someone way cooler than me, now I can't even type.

MichaelTAdams said...

Oh this is all very sweet and all, but he's making the rest of mankind look bad. Please give me his number so I can have a talk with him. This list should have no more than 43 possible points on it, he's way over budget.

Gretchen said...

Oh, how wonderful. Ohhh, I want to cry. :) My guy is great too.

#43! I'm hot for your hubby now. Drummers, oh yeah.

Christine Rockwell said...

OMG! Tear! What a great couple you guys are! It's wonderful to know that there are happily married people out there besides me!

Momto5Minnies said...

Very sweet ... lucky, lucky woman!

Now my little list of 5 things seems a bit weak. Oh well!

Matilda said...

Do we get to see this stinkin' HUGE wedding ring?

Star Molegraaf said...

Loooooove rule #12- I so plan on putting this on our family rule list!!hee
