Thursday Thirteen (About Mike)

Thirteen Things about Mike (My Sweet Husband)

1. He’s Mr. Family Man at home and Mr. FancyShmancy Businessman at work. (The two rarely mix.)

2. He sometimes buys lots of flowers and cuts them and sticks them in vases all over the house, as a surprise for me.

3. He could not possibly care less about flowers and sometimes they give him asthma attacks but he does this anyway.

4. He hunts, golfs, and plays XBOX on a wall sized screen in the basement.

5. He believes in my dreams and goals – usually more than I do.

6. Great legs. Ahem.

7. He showed up an hour early for our first date (I wasn’t ready) and nervously talked about marriage. And wanting 5 kids. (Married him anyway, and we stopped at 4.)

8. If I’ve had a rough week sometimes he’ll tell me to go shoe shopping.

9. He’s good at diapers, handling the kids’ tantrums, and kids’ homework projects.

10. He takes the kids to all their friends’ birthday parties, because he knows I am too antisocial to enjoy or survive them.

11. He lets me put my cold feet on him, and never complains about it.

12. He likes the color orange. Suddenly, and A LOT.

13. He’s the most optimistic, positive person I’ve ever met.

Bonus One (NOT a 14th, cause that would just be wrong. It’s a ‘bonus one.’): He can do the airplane foot thing really well. It’s a big hit.

Yes, that’s marker on Caden-2yr’s face.

Your hubby sounds WONDERFUL and it’s so awesome that he’s good with the kids. My husband won’t let me put my cold feet on his hot body. I’m jealous. LOL.

My 13 are up.

Okay, THAT is not clutter. That is a sippy cup and a Lego. In my house we consider that decor.

As for the Typepad photo thing, when you insert the picture into your post, you can click on it, then grab the corner and pull it out bigger. At least, you can on mine.

Awww, that was really sweet.

If that’s clutter, then you are never coming to my house. (Love the marker on the face, what a little CUTIE!)

Hey, I’ve got cold feet too! My hubby whines about it, but I can tell by the smile on his face that he’s digging it.

Fun pic :-)

Y’all are right. I ASSUMED there would be clutter in any 2 pictures taken within my home. Surprisingly, there’s not. Weird.

Also, chickadee, I bet if you told your husband you told the Whole INternet that his body is ‘hot,’ he’d let you put your feet on him! DOn’t underestimate the power of the male ego!

Okay, the tone of my blog today was far too serious so I came over for some laughs. The one Lego qualifying as clutter actually made me feel like a failure. Your husband sounds like a great guy – not funny either. Come back and make me laugh. :)

WOW! We had such a long, drawn out week I forgot about the Thirsday Thirteen thing! Too embarassed to post on Friday, again. Will put a reminder to do it next week.

I LOVE your “vacation” idea! Hope it went well!!!!!

Okay, so this is a seriously late comment, but what can I say? Your hubby sounds like a real winner. I love mine desperately, but I think I would die of shock if he ever filled the house with flowers.

I think I might have to join in on this Thursday 13 thing. Sounds like fun. Maybe I’ll go check into it…or maybe I’ll actually try to finish the design I’ve been working on/changing/redo-ing for 5 months now.
