How Do I Love Thee?

This weekend is the big member-guest golf tournament at my husband's golf course and being the head teaching pro, he has to be there like every second. He also has to wear a dress shirt and tie every day vs. the typical golf uniform of a collared polo shirt.

He had to be at work this morning at 6:00 am and at about 5:30, I hear him grunting and groaning and mumbling under his breath.

Mind you, I don't typically move from my bed until AT LEAST 7:00 am, but being the loving and observant wife I am, I knew exactly what was going on: he was trying to iron a shirt.

My husband can do a lot of things, but ironing is something he has never had and will never have the patience to learn.

I could have ignored him, acted like I was still asleep. But then I would worry about him going to work with a half-ironed shirt. So, I dragged my butt out of bed, walked over to him and took the iron out of his hand, no words, and he just smiled at me and said "thank you."

That, my friends, is what makes a marriage work.



  1. Yes, if I iron my husbands shirts...he makes him happy! But, he irons better than me!

    Great black and white picture of your hubby!

    I love your blog! beautiful photos!

  3. That is love!Especially that early!

  4. How sweet are you!?!

    My husband, believe it or not, is the iron man (ha!) in our house. He's an attorney and has taught me a thing or two about starch...which I didn't even know existed until I met him :)

  5. That made me cry Wendy! That is excactly what true love is - not the fancy dinners - or the sweet gifts - it's the daily nudges, behind the scenes help, the unspoken words of love and support...hold on to that - it's what will make your memories richer - and give little Walker a living example of love and friendship :)

  6. Fantastic post, and so relatable! Good for him for at least trying; my husband would have thrown the shirt and the dryer and prayed that the heat removed the wrinkles. And a good woman you are; I am not a morning person at all. Nor an ironness! Makes me want to be a better wife! : )

  7. Thank you....makes it all worth while. Good picture!!!!

  8. Love this and got a big smile on my face! Jamie can't iron either, but he just goes to work wrinkled :)

  9. I love your blog!

    My husband works at a golf course too; although, he's the head superintendent. He has ironing down, but truthfully that's where all household activities stop- other than the yard, of course.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
