In honor of father’s, I’ve deemed this Men’s Week on the blog.
So, we’re going to talk men everyday this week. About them.
Why? Just because we can. M’kay?
Now, ladies, I landed me a good one almost 14 years ago. He’s not perfect, but perfectly created for me. We are the kind of couple who enjoy spending a lot of time together, I guess because we were best friends in college.
We don’t really like to go our separate ways on the weekend and we wear matching shirts. Oh, I kid on the shirt thing. (Although I could dig up a picture of us in matching sweaters, if I wanted to. But, my hubby draws the line on some things and that’s one of them).
The things I love about him?
He encourages me to be myself and lets me think I’m getting my way on important matters. He works hard every day and cares deeply.
His love for his children defines him. He was created to be their Dad. He is the fun parent and leads his children by example.
And, he appreciates my deep love for sweet tea. I, mean, really, what more could I ask for?
He can cook too.
Growing up, when my Mom would leave my Dad in charge of dinner, we knew what we’d be eating. He called it SOS. (As in _____ on a shingle). I’ll just let you figure out that one. It was actually quite yummy, but not exactly eye candy? I’m just saying.
So, marrying a man who knew his way around the kitchen and enjoyed it, was a pleasant surprise. He even asked for Rachel Ray’s latest cookbook for his birthday last year.
But I know, there may be more men out there like my Dad, serving up SOS on those girl’s nights out, than like my hubby, preparing something I can’t even pronounce.
I found something to solve that problem. It’s a cookbook called A Man, A Can, A Plan. I bought it for the title, but there are some great recipes in there!
This cookbook just cracks me up.
Leave a comment and tell me something you love about your hubby/dad/male pet and you could win this fabulous cookbook in time for Father’s Day! Please only leave one comment and this little contest will end Monday night at 10 pm (CST time).
Oh, and I have a “My hubby drives me nuts when he does this. . . ” list, too.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
