Why I {Heart} My Husband Reason #689

First of all, let's talk about how awesome it is that it's already Tuesday.  All day long, I kept thinking it was Monday, and then I'd get a little kick in my step when I'd realize we were 3/4 of the way through Tuesday.  Wahoo!  I vote that Monday becomes part of the weekend.  All in favor?

However, my little pumpkin is still sicky sick :(  The Tylenol-Motrin rotation is really becoming quite bothersome, and we're having to come up with the strangest bribes to get him to take his medicine.  Do you want a frozen pancake? Only if you take your medicine!  The good news?  He agreed!

He passed out on the couch today - this never happens!

Anyway, on to Reason #689 as to why I love my husband...

I should have bragged on him awhile ago when I mentioned that my Valentine gift was a little somethin' somethin' from Lisa Leonard Designs.  Then, a few of you asked about it when you saw it pictured in the post below.  So, here's the upclose pics...

Side #1

Side #2

And, here's the backstory...

B and I are big Dave Matthews Band fans.  Several of Dave's songs are "our" songs, most noteably Crash and 41.  We sing both to Becks before bed every night.  {Note: Not in a duet. That would be weird. We take turns putting him to bed each night.  I digress...} 

So, when you read each part of the necklace together, it says You and me together we can do anything.  Which are the lyrics to You and Me from his latest album. 

When I wear the necklace, the umbrella and sunshine show (thus hiding the "you and me" and "together"), along with "we can do anything."  When B gave me the necklace he explained that the umbrella and sunshine mean "in rain or shine." 

Isn't that the cutest?!  Love you, B!!!

{B designed this necklace by selecting the pieces and phrasing.  You can do the same at Lisa Leonard Designs.  This is my 2nd necklace from her and I looooove both of them.  They're my go-to necklaces and they match everyting.  Check her out!!!}

You are so lucky. My husband does not share my adoration of DMB nor would he ever pick out something like that.

Mommy Webb said...

So thoughtful. Love it. Bet he was giving you "the eyes" when he gave it to you. Ha!

Tiffany said...

Wow! I'm impressed! You have a super thoughtful husband. Isn't that great?!? (Mine's super sweet like that, too. We're lucky girls!!)
Happy almost Hump Day!!

I have been stalking LL's store/website and dropped the hint that it sure would be neat to receive something special after our 2nd baby (in 14 months...all his fault) is born in May. Wish me luck!
I love the necklace. On her website, it says "Rain or Shine, so glad you're mine" or something like that. I thought that was pretty darn cute in itself. But B's idea was pretty sweet and sentimental for your DMB thingy.
Props on my first comment at your site!

That is one of the sweetest gifts I've ever seen! Also, I know this is from a way old post, but I meant to tell you that we have an Accord & I had a civic before (that my dad still at times drives- it was my car when I was 16 & I'm getting up there!). They are great cars & last forever. Great gas mileage, great resale value. Hope to see you guys soon!

Laurie said...

Great necklace!! I found a similar necklace on Esty.com but I had to ask my husband to buy it for me. It has our initials, our date of marriage and a crystal charm and pearl. Such a thoughtful husband you have!!
