FF: it’s the little things

We all know that it's super important for our husband to give us the grand gestures, flowers, and extravagant date nights.

But in reality, it's the little things that make us fall in love with them day after day.

Today's Friday Five is about the little things.








1.  When my car is on empty, he fills it up.  When we're out somewhere together and have to get gas, he always gets out and fill it up.  Jon is actually the first guy that has ever done this for me, and even 6 years later, I find it to be a romantic gesture. 



2.  When I'm not having a good day, he offers up the things he knows will make me happy - baby clothes shopping, my clothes shopping, a run, a walk, or a glass of wine.  Not only do I get excited about all of those, but it really makes me feel like he knows me.  Especially when he suggests I go to Carter's.




3.  He never leaves the house without kissing Peanut and me goodbye and saying "I love you".  No matter what.  And yes, even when he's mad at me. I'm much less mature about this one.
 


4.  He pretends (yes, I know he pretends but it's still nice) to care about every piece of clothing I buy.  So when I come home and say, "wanna see what I got?" He eagerly tells me yes and settles down for the 'Show and Tell' while I try on every single outfit or show off Peanut's new outfits.  Then he nods and says it's the cutest thing ever at all the right times.


5.  He reads my blog.  Did you know that about him?  Jon is one of my biggest supporters.  And not only does he read my blog (without me mentioning that I posted something or forcing him), but he reads almost every single one of your comments (I only know because he occasionally brings this up and it always shocks me).

What small gestures make your day?

  2. I love this! I may have to steal. Rob reads my blog, too, and he's always very encouraging, especially when I post something that is difficult for me. He sounds like such a sweet guy! Love that.

  4. Well my hubby doesn't even know I have a blog so he doesn't read it. My hubby isn't a romantic at all. So in the mornings he'll come kiss me goodbye and then I tell him I love him and he replies. Well some mornings I'll forget to tell him and he'll just stand in the bathroom looking at me and say, "don't you love me?" Sometimes I wonder if he even cares, but then he'll go all girl on me and do that! lol

  5. Ulysses reads mine too. In fact he's scheming ways to drive traffic to it, they are pretty ridiculous and funny ideas. It's funny hearing about Jon in the husband role rather than coworker :)

  6. So sweet! Chris reads my blog...and so does his male boss...which...is slightly disconcerting at times? (He's a friend, too. Husband of the girl that lent me the maternity clothes. But still.)

  11. My husband fills up our tank whenever we are out together too. I too think this is sweet! Plus he actually reads my blog and when I don't blog for awhile he reminds me that I'm slacking :) Sounds like you have a keeper!

  12. Your post inspired my latest, although it wasn't a Friday Five. But I mentioned you in the beginning. http://mambogook.blogspot.com/

    Taylor won't read my blog. I think he's afraid I'm bashing him on it, haha!
