pause for props

I've gotta brag on my husband for a bit.

The past few weeks, I have been, a lot of the time, exhausted. This first trimester deal is for the birds. Typically when I get home from work, I change into my PJ's and head for the couch, where I lie uselessly until time to go to bed. {Which, nowadays, is somewhere between 9:00 & 9:30.} Baron has been the BEST husband/housewife. He has prepared dinner most evenings. {In our house, "prepared" usually consists of thawing a frozen skillet meal or re-heating leftovers, but I digress.} He has gone to Wal-Mart for the groceries. {Ok, so maybe he did that even before I got pregnant, as a result of my effort to avoid Wal-Mart at all costs.} He has done the dishes, and the laundry. Don't get me wrong - he has always been more than willing to perform these tasks, and quite often does so without me even asking. But he has gone above & beyond the call of duty these past few weeks. He has truly been a Godsend for me!

On another note...Baron was in Dallas this weekend for a football coaches' conference. Of course it would be MEN who planned such a conference on Valentine's Day weekend. I miss Baron while he is gone, but I also enjoy some of the time alone. {Toby keeps good company. :-)} Before Baron left town, he sent me my favorite flowers - tulips - at work, and we went out for dinner. If you haven't been to MarChelle's in Prattville, GO AS SOON AS YOU CAN. They have the second best beef brisket in the WORLD. {Second only to my brother's...YUM.} Anyway, thank you, Baron for a wonderful pre-Valentine's celebration, and thank you for being such a wonderfully supportive husband!! I love you!

{P.S. As I was finishing this post, I was reminded of a poem my dad once wrote for my mom when he bought her some tulips: "Yes, roses are red, and expensive too. That's why I'm giving my two-lips to you!" AWWWWWWW. Yes, my parents are cheesy.}


  1. How toughtful!!! I've always been a fan of different flowers besides roses.

    I'm sorry you have been so tired...maybe you'll get a burst of energy soon.

  2. I agree, he's a pretty good guy. The flowers are beautiful!

  3. Baron is a good'un. I am not cheesy.
