Obviously, I already think that my husband is the greatest man in the world. If I didn't think that, I obviously would't have married him, right? But there are some times where the things he says and/or does for me, really takes me back and captures my heart all over again in the most overwhelming ways. I can't say that those moments happen every day, you know the moments were you feel like you felt the first time you held hands, or kissed, or the first "I love you" moments, but when they do it's the best and better than I could ever remember. Yesterday was one of those moments.

My husband had this Thursday and Friday off of work, and not only did he outdo himself but doing ALL the laundry, and cleaning the house, I came in the door from work and lo and behold my little eyes gazed upon this beautiful sight.
That's right....a brand new beautiful Kitchen Aid mixer!!! As I walked in the door, I was on the phone with my sister Pam and I began squealing like a little girl (to her dismay) as I was beyond overjoyed at this beautiful blessing from my husband!!! I was in such shock that he would go all out in love and do this for me!! I have wanted to buy a Kitchen Aid mixer since we got married, but at that time we just didn't have the extra finances to get one and I have let my little hand mixer suffice my needs. I really love baking and cooking and try to get better at it, and this little beauty makes all those efforts that much easier.
So a few days ago, as I was thinking/planning the Christmas cookies that I wanted to make, I mentioned to Scott that it would be so nice to have one of these. With Christmas coming up, I just knew that it wouldn't be the right time to get one, and on Thursday night he said to me, "Well, we can wait till after Christmas, and see what extra we might have in the budget then." I knew that would be his answer, and honestly I had the same train of thought, so I just let that be that. Little did I know that all along he was planning on getting me one the VERY next day. That little sneak!!
I say all this not to brag, but to remind myself to always be thankful for the blessing that I have in my husband, and the blessings that God has given to us over the past 2 1/2 years in increasing our financial capacity. Being married, you can tend to only focus on the hard days, or the bad things that your husband can do...like when he leaves dirty dishes on the counter instead of in the sink, or chooses to lay on the couch instead of helping you clean. I know my husband does all those things, but when he really wants to bless me and show me his love for me, he really, really goes all out and it makes up for all the other things that happen in between that may be not so great. I couldn't ask God for a better man in my life, and I am truly thankful for him.
I am so excited about my beautiful new baking station in my kitchen, and this makes me even more excited for Christmas to come!!!
THANKS HONEY!! YOU'RE THE BEST!
