Hubby's Surprise

Okay, before you get too excited, he hasn't planned a big romantic trip to one of my dream spots (maybe someday)....But, he sure did make me happy with his little surprise! I love "little" surprises...especially when they're so sweet and thoughtful.

A few days ago, I showed Jason a picture of a primitive bowl rack that I would love to have for my kitchen. Now it's been enough that he made my cupboard, which I'm so proud of, so I didn't expect him to make this for awhile. Well, Thursday night when Joy and I came in from dance...as I walked down the sidewalk toward the sunporch door, I could see something wooden sitting on the loveseat. As I got closer, I could see it was the very bowl rack I asked for...completely constructed (but unfinished because he didn't know what color I wanted). He had the picture (that I showed him) leaning in front of it. I was SO excited to say the least! Joy was laughing at me! I was exclaiming (in a very high pitched voice, I might add), "Oh, he's the best!"



When we went inside, Joy marched upstairs where her dad was and said, "Introducing your lovely, beautiful, HAPPY, wife!" Needless to say, he got a bunch of hugs and kisses!

I am very happy and blessed to have a husband that can no only create these goodies for me, but is willing and happy to do it. Actually, he loves building with wood. He learned it from his dad, who was a carpenter. I think he'd really rather do this than what he does for a living! (That is if he knew he could make a good living at it).

Jason knows I have a wish list (kind of long) of prim goodies for him to make for me and he doesn't mind...I just have to be patient. Next on the list is a desk that Joy has asked him to make (and you know how little girls have their daddies wrapped around their little finger). Then my mom wants a cupboard like mine! (And he's a good son-in-law too)!

I sure do love my hubby! :)



And there's a giveaway to check out....Terri of Thistle House Primitives is having a wonderful fall giveaway. Stop by and check out the details. She will draw a winner next week, so hurry on over!

What a wonderful surprise and how very sweet of him! See, we simple women don't need a fancy trip or a ton of expensive jewelry to make us love our men :) It's those little things...those things that they know we love, no matter how simple that they do for us.

Can't wait to see it done!

Have a great weekend!

Tammy, that Jason of yours is quite a fellow!! I have a husband just like that, although he isn't a crafty one with wood, but he sure knows the kind of shops I love and always makes sure I get to them!! I am blessed like you to have such a wonderful man. I love your bowl rack!! I've been looking for one to hang on my wall. Make sure you post pictures when you've got the finish on!! Jax

Tammy said...

Oh, you are so blessed indeed!

I just posted about the movie we went and saw last night- Fireproof.
It's about marriage and
in fact, in the film the husband has to do one act of kindness for her a day...but it's so funny, because when he starts initially, he does it begrudgingly! But he ends up doing it with a changed and loving heart by the end.

You sound like you have a very loving husband, Tammy!

Hugs,
The other Tammy
