Monday Listicles

Hi there!

How has your week been? Were you busy or still recovering from the huge Mother’s day week long celebrations? Yes, I think we should be dancing and eating chocolate all week long. But you know me. I don’t really need a reason to celebrate. I did love reading your lists! They were fun and funny and thought provoking and all kinds of fabulous. Keep them coming!

For this week my one and only man chose the topic for us: 10 THINGS HUSBANDS SHOULD DO. I think he was banking on the fact that he mows and takes the bins to the curb so I will declare him Superman on my blog. So here goes: My husband is super human.

Come back next week and join me in listing 10 WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR HOME.

For now let’s write things down for husbands.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!




1. Husbands should worry less about making sure family is happy and spend more time being happy with the family.

2. Husbands should never snore again.

3. Husbands should never ever question another shoe (or in my case gadget) purchase.

4. Husbands should believe us when we say they are hot. We have no reason to lie.

5. Husbands should finally learn that placing the plate on top of the dishwasher does not clean it.

6. Husbands should have their me time too. Preferably on Saturday night so we can write Listicles in peace.

7. Husbands should laugh more and frown less.

8. Husbands should stop spreading rumors that shrinking your wife’s favorite shirt will get you out of laundry doing.

9. Husbands should vacuum their wife’s car. Or give birth. I would let mine pick between the two.

10. Husbands should be loved. Beyond everything else.

    And maybe YOUR husband should pick the Listicles subject more often….because I had such fun with this subject. LOL

    Love your quote Stasha. They should add this to the wedding vows: “…and do you promise to not require a marching band every time you take out the trash or do the dishes, so help you God?” (-:

    I thought our lists would be full of husband bashing. Yours is so sweet, straightforward, and loving.

    You two are so lucky to have each other! :)

    My husband thinks loading the dishwasher after dinner makes up for not loading it the rest of the day. I guess I need to be happy he loads it at dinner!

    i love your take on this. So funny: vacuuming the car or giving birth, he gets to choose.That is a little stroke of brilliance. You know he’ll choose the vacuuming and voila! Clean car for life. Very foxy, indeed. Ellen

    If only my huz could stop snoring! I don’t think anything could make me happier. I’ve lost countless hours (days?) of sleep over the past 9 years.
    I really like #1 on your list too. My husband is “guilty” of that.

    Oh …how could I forget #2. I’ve done some of my best poems or posts because I couldn’t come to bed due to much sawing of logs.
    i feel so bad when I have to explain bruising on his sides some mornings. almost.
    Love how you ended it! :)

      I pinched that quote of pinterest but made my own sign cause the other one made my site fall apart. O have the hardest time displaying pins…
      Anyhow I cannot find who said it first…

    I LOVE this list. Perfect! I’m not sure I could do a list… I mean, I don’t have any real wishes that my husband “should do” that he doesn’t already. He’s not super human, just super loving. I guess I am very blessed… but I did have to learn a very hard lesson after picking someone who was very wrong for me (& consequently my kids) the first time around

        I’m so glad there was no hubby bashing. It could have easily gone that way but your list was so gracious (as you always are). I mean, we make our own happiness, right?? And happiness starts with being grateful for the life we have (even the not so lovely stuff) :)

      Funny how us women get punished with snoring since we never do. Or fart, or pee for that matter. I have never peed in my life :)

    Amen to #2! Mine gave me a very hard time sleeping this past weekend (on top of the regular pregnancy insomnia)… I also think they should have to experience childbirth at least once. But who are we kidding, there really wouldn’t be a second time after that, woudl there?
