WFMW: Lunchtime Love

I asked Da Hubby this week what was our "best" relationship advice in preparation for Shannon's Works For Me Wednesday: Love, Sweet Love edition. But, at Shannon's request to keep it G/PG rated, I can't post what his first suggestion was! Other than it included the word "more"! *wink*

My first thought was Da Hubby's and my determined promise not to go to bed angry. This has caused a few long nights/short sleep sessions but has been well worth it in the long run.

Then, I thought of a cute, effective alternative. I still make Da Hubby's lunch at least three days a week (I'm shooting for all five days! LOL) And, one thing that I started in our newlywed days and he still really appreciates is me writing messages on his lunch items. Using a Sharpie on one or two of his Ziplocks, I'll write something cute, funny, or mushy.

For example, I have an application on my Palm called a date wheel. Several times I've put in our wedding date and the current date and found out how many days/week/whatever we've been married. Then,I'll put on his lunch, "thanks for (blank) days of happiness!"

He always comments and thanks me for doing it. And, it's become a "thing" at his work/shop (once he got over the initial embarrassment) of "hey, man, whatcha wife write ya today?" LOL

I make my hubby's breakfast and lunch to take with him to work everyday. Not only does he appreciate me taking my own time to do soemthing nice for him but he also appreciates that I am doing my part to help with family finances. Congrats on doing this as well. It gets easier to do it everyday when you hear how happy it makes him. :)

That's so fun! I love the idea of writing notes directly on the lunch bag. And figuring out how many days of happiness is so awesome!

Nikki ALL OUT Valentine's Day

That's great. I've also written notes on my husband's napkins or just stuck a little paper note in the bag.

You're lucky that your husband enjoys it! I did this for a couple of weeks when my hubby started a new job and he asked me to stop. Said the guys at work were making fun of him. I can't tell you how that crushed me.
