Sunday Social -- I'm Thankful

Do I gush about my husband a lot here?
Even if I do, it's not enough.


When Neely posted the question for this week's Sunday Social, Stewart was the first thing to come to mind. Seriously, that kid puts up with a lot from me. And I'm so incredibly grateful for everything that he does, but I probably don't tell him enough. So here are just a few of the many things Stewart does that I am so, so thankful for...

{exhibit a}

He gives me no grief about having clothes, laundry and shoes all over the house, all the time.
It's honestly such a ridiculous habit, but I just can't seem to get it under control.

That's not even a closet you see there at the bottom left. It's the shower in the guest bathroom.
And those clothes have been hanging there "drying" for over a week.

He deals with all the finances for our household and lives. The mortgage, bills, automatic payments, insurance, retirement, credit cards, air miles, you name it... he's got it covered. Literally my only job is to collect my receipts throughout the month and put them in a folder for him to reconcile. It's kind of amazing.

Look at that nightmare... No thank you. Math isn't really my thing.

{exhibit c}

The cat. Or mainly, the cat litter. Not only does he deal with making sure Jasmine always has food and fresh water, but shortly after we moved in together he also took over the responsibility of cleaning out the litter box. I feel that there is no adequate way of repaying him for shouldering this disgusting chore. I don't even know if growing him his own mini me is enough.

You were terrified I was going to post a pic of the litter box, weren't you?

I could go through the alphabet three times and still never list all the things that I am thankful for about my husband, but it's all these types of little things compounded together that make him such an amazing person. I am such a cliché, lovesick girl for saying this, but I honestly think about my marriage quite often and wonder at how fortunate I am.

And I thank my lucky stars.

  5. So cute ! And good bc you can't change cat litter while your pregnant! Dustin started doing it when I was pregnant and continues the fun chore, lol!

  6. Awwwwww, love all of this! He sounds sweet!

  7. Sounds like you have an amazing, sweet, and thoughtful hubby! I am shocked that he completely takes care of the finances! That's freaking awesome! I am the same way with clothes LOL Luckily mine doesn't give me too much grief, although, he has no room to talk... He leaves his the same way, its just not as noticeable since he has less clothes :)

  8. He needs to teach Rob some lessons-- seriously.
