He Is Always Surprising Me!

Boy, there is an understatement.  I remember when my hubby and I were engaged....he promised our life wouldn't be boring....He has kept his promise!

Something I don't know if I have ever shared, but my husband does most of the grocery shopping.  He likes to go EARLY in the morning...like 6:00AM.....so Tuesday evenings we make out our list...I must be VERY detailed....and when I get up Wednesday morning, the shopping is done and the perishables put away.  However, everything else is out of the bags, like on display on the counter.  My hubs says it is the hunter man showing his hunt to his mate! (insert cave man grunting here)  OKAY....

Last week he left for the day of work before I was up and I came in to see the usual counter full.  But wait....oh isn't that sweet, he bought a Tea for One for me!! (I am thinking, oh, he hit a sale table...)

Isn't it cute????  But wait....what else is this????



Oh mercy....this is too stinkin' cute!  A cake server like a High Heel Shoe.  I just love it...and my surprises...and my Hubby!!

Have a great Sunday my friends!

What a sweetie! That cake server is a riot!! I have never seen anything like it and what a great idea it was!

You tea set looks perfect for morning devotion time- you and your other Love of your life!

I am down with some sort of crud this weekend. It hit in the middle of me putting the Christmas away so it is terribly messy here!

What a sweetie. Mine decorates but never shops for groceries unless we are together and that is not often we do that together. Fun cake server for sure.

Oh Ceekay.....what a darling husband you have. My husband is pretty special but I don't get little suprises like that! That cake slicer is the best ever, I love it!

applause to hubby.

Vee said...

Oh he's very sweet. I hope that he got extra kisses. That cake server is too cute...have never seen anything like it. Oddly enough, my husband likes to do a lot of the grocery shopping and I, too, must be very detailed or else I get a phone call from whichever aisle he's in.

Oh, Ceekay! He is a doll! He needs to get together with my hubs and teach him a thing or two! The tea for one is darling and the cake server too cute! You are a lucky girl! :-)

XO,

Hi CeeKay,

Hugs,

Sarah said...

Ceekay, he's a keeper. Glad to know you live with a wonderful husband. :-)

Terra said...

You husband is a doll to find such clever gifts for you.
Today my dh and I shared a handmade ice cream downtown, spending some of a gift card he gave me for Christmas.
Our sweet hearts.

Oh my lands girl, I can not believe this! My hubby is a sweetheart and will stop at the store for me on his way home from work any time I ask. It's just to pick up a few things, not an entire list. Plus, he would not take a second look at a shoe cake stand. Really, he would have NO idea what it is. Still he's a keeper because he never says a word about what I spend and is so generous and helpful. Isn't it wonderful that the world is full of different types of people?

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

What a great hubby you have Ceekay! And those cute little gifts....perfect!
Hope to see you in the near future!

Lori said...

Lucky girl you! Of course you had tea and cake ready for him that night right?

Betty Jo said...

What a precious, thoughtful man and sweet gifts. Gosh this post brought tears to my eyes. My hubby was just like yours in these ways. He also did most of our grocery shopping. I miss him, and his weekly gifts soooooo much. ♥

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Ceekay, what a darling husband you have. The cake server is toooooo adorable.

My hubby actually likes grocery shopping. Can you imagine? I love to cook but I detest buying groceries.

Hope you are having a great weekend,
Barb

OMGoodness, CK! DH is absolutely lovely. He & my GH (great hubby) have the same character. He love surprises and I adore it too.

Thumbs UP for your lovely DH.

NanaDiana said...

Aren't you tired of that old boy yet? Can you ship him along for a day or two to give some lessons to THIS ONE? lol What a sweetie...he loves you and shows it in ways most men wouldn't think to do. Lucky you- xo diana

A Hint of Home said...

I love your new teapot! Just right for you to pamper yourself with one cuppa and scan a magazine or two!
The cake server is adorable!
Ask LK if they have any more?
Hugs!

lynn said...

he's a keeper:) sweet tea set and how cute is the cake server?!

Rebecca said...

What a man! My guy goes all the shopping too! I hate going to the grocery store and don't even know what stuff costs anymore. Not long ago I had to run into Target (grocery side) and nearly fainted over the price of bread! Some things I'd rather NOT KNOW!

Love the shoe thingy (and pie!).

xoxoRebecca

Liz said...

What a man! :) I'm not sure which I love more...the grocery shopping or the surprise gifts. :) My SIL has that same little cake server. I have borrowed it a couple of time. I love it! :) I think the little single serve will make the perfect cup of Earl Grey! :) Enjoy! Lucky girl!

It is very sweet of your husband to do the groceries for you. I bet he's about the only one there at that time of the morning. If I send my husband for milk, he gets whole milk rather than Fat Free (which we have been drinking for 10 years or so). I would have to draw him pictures of what the items look like so he would get the right thing if I asked him to shop for the real groceries.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Ceekay,
How darn sweet...I love the tea of one! I use mine all the time. The high heel cake server is so darling, I have to have one LOL.
Just what every girl needs some sweet giggles and a husband you makes her smile! You are blessed.
Wishing you and yours a very blessed and Happy New Year, Elizabeth

Ivy and Elephants said...

Oh, Ceekay that server is just precious! What a real gem of a guy you have there. And he knows you so well.
What a sweetie!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Hi Ceekay! Happy New Year! Thanks so much for coming by! I really do have to figure out what day it is sometimes! haha What a sweetie you're married to. Your kids look wonderful too! Come to think of it, it's been ages since I took my picture with any of mine!

Cindy said...

Hi Ceekay! Love that your husband does all the grocery shopping! Mine will go whenever I ask him. Adore the Cake server.... where's the cake? Thanks for stopping by my blog I love comments, they let me know how I'm doing. XO Cindy

blessedmom's simple home said...

I laughed out loud when I read the part about the hunter man bringing in the hunt :) I used to have a cat that would do it. She'd wait at the back door with her prey (usually a bug, but sometimes more). When the door would open, she'd take it straight to my room :) What a sweet hubby you have. I do most of the shopping, but when my hubby goes, it's at 6 am too!
Blessings,
Marcia

Kim said...

WOW!!! He is a real gem Ceekay! You are one lucky lady. And he is a lucky man to have you for a wife. It's a match made in Heaven.
xoxo,
Kim

What nice surprises, he's a keeper!

My husband also does the grocery shopping at the wee hours of morning (or night!) His surprises for me are usually yellow roses, or candy! Love it!

Thanks for telling us how you read blogs and reply, good to know.

I like your word for the year - custom made just for you, from the Lord!!

Betsy said...

Hi Ceekay! What a sweet and thoughtful husband you have. My husband does most of our shopping too, but he's never come home with a tea for one set or an adorable cake server! Sometimes he does bring me chocolate though!
