romance isn't dead


off with your head

the boy in this picture.. you know, the one trying to single handedly lop off my head? yeah, him. he so loves me.

when i got home from work last night, i was greeted by a man who quickly hustled me into the house and relieved my arms of everything i was holding. all the candles in our house were lit and the table was set so beautifully for 2 (blake is with his dad). and the house. OMG, the house. he fucking cleaned it!! i wanted to cry over that alone.

he hurried me up the candlelit stairs and i heard voices. my mind quickly flashed to the fact that his buddies were hiding somewhere in our room just waiting for me to get up there so they could jump out and terrify me. i was wrong. what i heard was frank sinatra playing from the speakers. *swoon* i quickly glanced around the room and took note that the candles were burning and that his nightstand was clean (like i could see the whole entire thing, clean)! and his side of the bed was spotless! and our dresser. holy crap. everything was clean!!!! this made me smile inside. probably outside too. he hurried me into the bathroom. oh yes, THAT'S where the guys are hiding to scare me, i just know it! wrong again. that's where a freshly drawn bath was waiting for me. a hot bath that almost burned my feet off, but does that really matter when it comes to love? i think not.

and there he left me. to soak in the tub and relax while he went downstairs to cook dinner. it was such a romantic and thoughtful night. and why did he do it, you're asking yourself? no reason. just because.

*swoon* That is so freaking sweet! Dot is the best!!! I told Jason if he would just attempt to cook something, I would be thrilled. Nearly 5 years and it hasn't happened yet...

That is so fantastically sweet. Forget planning the wedding- get that boy on your mini dirt bike and drive him to the nearest courthouse today!

He's such a keeper. That is so sweet. It sounds a little to clean though. Sure he didn't pay someone else to so it? Yea for you!

That is soooo sweet! Just the cleaning of the house- just that alone is romantic!

MelissaM said...

And you deserved it too! It's those little meaningful things that mean the most.

Did he put out too? ;o)

jen said...

Maybe he felt you needed a bath after getting all gucked up in the mud! ;)
That is awesome...moments like that make men worth it. :)

ginger incognito said...

That is such as sweet and wonderful thing for him to do! Isn't it great when the men in our lives stop being poopyheads just long enough to remind us why we love them?

Lisa said...

I hope you gave him the best, BEST sex of his life after that.

What a sweetie. Yeay YOU! And I'm with Stephanie -- get on that dirtbike NOW. heehee

Mama M said...

Wow. That is amazing! I'm sending my husband over to read this post! :)

Are you trying to make me hate you? You are, aren't you. You want me to hate you. The last thing Nate did that was close to romantic was waddle into the living room where I was working, with his boxers around his ankles, and point to his crotch, as in "hint hint." Hot, I know.

I think your man needs to do some East Coast Husband Training...ASAP.

Wow! I wish Jake would do that for me. He considers his share of the work around here to be cooking pancakes on Sunday morning. While I really appreciate the pancakes, some help with laundry, or cleaning would be nice...

ok you are definitely marrying the right man. either that or you are making this up like a modern-day fairy tale. you wouldn't lie to us, would you?

does he have a brother? who happens to be single and living in SC? Repo better watch his back if there's men like this in the world!

he cleaned? seriously? because that would have been the best part for me. bath-schmath! clean my house!

i had a boyfriend do that for me once. but he moved to Oregon. plus he got on my nerves. oh well. i can't win.

so....care to tell us your secrets? is this something i can train Repo to do? is there something i slip in his drink? do i hit him upside the head with something? please, i beg of you, tell us!!!

Gry said...

Dude, I want to give my boyfriend some of what your boyfriend has been taking.

Oh, you mean he cleans up ALL ON HIS OWN?

Hot damn..
