This is the 1st (of 4 total) posts in my 30 day challenge of 30 things I love & appreciate about my husband, Nile. I am so excited about this challenge! I’ll be posting 1 a week for the entire month of April!
#1. Nile likes to shop with me & never complains. Doesn’t matter WHERE we are or WHAT we are shopping for. This man never says a word, he actually [dare I say] ENJOYS it!
#2. The Bob Dylan voice. I’m telling you. He does the BEST Bob Dylan voice & it kills me every time! The best part is that he will start singing songs like “Replay” by Iyaz in this voice. I hope you all get to experience it sometime!
#3. He gets just as excited about household gifts as I do.
#4. He supports & is involved in my career as a teacher. I often work sporting events at school taking admission tickets and N will just show up and sit there with me just to keep me company. Today, I had to take a trip to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum to prepare for the field trip I’m taking my kids on. Not only did he GO with me to this place crawling with children and germs, he was EXCITED about it!! A couple snapshots of our visit:
#5. He stops when I have to pee. Not sure if you can relate or not, but have you ever been in the car with a driver that DOES NOT want to stop to save time?
Nile gets to the next exit as fast as he possibly can. If you can relate, you KNOW how valuable this quality is in a man! The appreciation is GREAT.
#6. He eats EVERYTHING I cook, smiles, and says “YUM!” This doesn’t necessarily mean he likes everything, but he always does it to make me feel good because he’s awesome. I can always tell when his “yum” is a REAL “yum” or a make-me-feel-good-because-I’ll-cry-if-he-hate-it “yum”. Either way, he’s always thinking about me 🙂
This dish was a REAL “yum!!”
#7. He hates onions. Now, you’ve got to realize that this is huge for me because I HATE onions [and that’s pretty much the only food I hate!] It is very relieving knowing that I can always omit onions out of recipes and have no complaints from him.
#8. Nile finds things for our unborn children. One of the things I love about him the most is that he wants to have kids. He will find cute things online and in stores and proclaim, “our child HAS to have this!” MY DREAM COME TRUE. One example was tonight, he ran in to Blockbuster to get a video game and comes out with this baby Darth Vader. BABY DARTH VADER! My heart melted.
Okay, all for now! I hope this is inspiring you to tell your significant other (or someone you love) the things you love about them! Happy weekend friends! xo
