Friday Evening

Some people go out dancing.

Or to fancy dinners.


He digs holes for me.


So we can plant things on Saturday.

I love him.


Sophie gives moral support from inside the house.

I love her too. :)


Happy Friday Night!

Aw, what a good guy! Beautiful tree! You are really turning your yard into a little slice of paradise!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Lucky woman to have such a good man. I am sure he feels the same way about you.
Hope you both a wonderful weekend.

That's true love, Stacey ... and so much better than a bouquet of roses or a box of candy, in my opinion.

Have fun planting your tree!

That is a true act of love...cuz I know my husband hates to do yardwork...he will do it, but he hates it!

Blondie's Journal said...

What a sweet guy you have there. That's a pretty tree and so big already!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I totally understand these words. The love language we each desire is different from another. The "digging holes" concept makes sense to me and believe it or not, it is what speaks to my heart to, when my husband does it. Simple yet powerful post. You are a fortunate lady!

Sue said...

The husband and I are kinda "duddy" and spend a lot of our time off working around the house and yard instead of going out for dinner or a movie. Glad our individual hubbies are such nice guys! :-)

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So nice to have a handy hubby. Trees make all the difference in the landscape :)
Blessings,
Cindy

Kim said...

Anyone who will dig holes for you is a keeper for sure! What a pretty tree. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Your Sophie looks so much like my Holly! I love how big that tree is already. Having a handy hubby is the best, isn't it? :) True love, I tell ya!

momstheword said...

Good to know! For a minute I was thinking he was digging a grave, lol! ;)

I miss my flowers but I don't miss the work. I just don't think my back would be up to it anymore anyway.

I love what I see of your blog and am following you! Also love the name of it! ;)

Laurie Ritchey said...

I think you'd better keep him. Does he know there is a beautiful tree growing in the bed of his pickup? Sophie looks like a sweetheart. I'll look forward to seeing your planted tree. laurie

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Now, that's hard work!! I'm sure your new tree looks great! I'm just ready to pot up some plants...lol!!!

Kelly said...

There's nothing better than seeing your husband work around the house is there? I know I love it when mine does. Looks like you're making good progress on your backyard.

Hi Stacey,

Not all gardening is fun and relaxing. That's the kind of gardening you need a good man to do for you because he can and he wants to! Like you, I have a hubby who works hard to make our grass a little greener! Enjoy!

Down to Earth Style said...

Stacey...We spend our weekends at home doing house projects all the time. I swear we have more fun doing that than fancy dinners. Your tree looks so pretty!

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

What a sweetie you have! You guys are so talented with your landscaping. I wish I had just a bit of your green thumb. :)

Sonia said...

Wow that is work! What a great guy to do all that digging! Can't wait to see everything placed and growing..I'm back from Florida and just so tired but glad to be home.

Isn't it nice when they give up their free time on the weekends to help us with our dreams?

Beverly said...

I'm with you Stacey...gotta love a man that digs holes for you. Seriously, we use to call a visit to Lowes on Friday or Saturday night a fun date.

Art and Sand said...

My husband does a lot for me, but he doesn't dig holes.

It would be fun to read different wedding vowels based on the individuals -
"do you promise to love this person, dig holes for them, dumpster dive when they find the perfect table in a trash can, build shelves in the basement, etc."

Those are just a few of the things bloggers have mentioned their husbands have done for them recently.

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

I am so with you on this. There is nothing more romantic than your guy helping you out with a project! He is definitely one of the good ones!!

Lynn

Gina said...

Got to love a man willing to take on hard labor for you! What a sweet guy!

Rachel O. said...

Best kind of love - when they do things like that around the house for you :) My husband weeded our yard the other day and I got all giddy because I didn't have to do it. Haha. It's the little things.

debi said...

Hello sweet friend :-)

Have so much catching up to do...thanks for checking in on me...



Hugs!!!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

That's a big hole! What a guy!

Jann Olson said...

What a sweetheart! I'd go for a tree any day over dinner and a movie.
hugs,
Jann

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It's so wonderful to have a hubby that likes to do things around the house. I'm blessed that way, too. And we can both take pride in our homes, which is nice. I always think of you on the days I stay inside and 'poof the pillows'. Sweet hugs!

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

that's a big tree to dig a hole for.....what a great guy to tackle that job. Everything y'all have done looks awesome....so pretty. :)

Cathy Cobblestone said...

Cute post Stacey! You know - we are homebodies too - we just like to get things done, ya know. Sounds like you've got a good man. Thanks for the kind words on the flowers! Happy Spring friend!

Michele Smith said...

That's my kind of day! I love getting dirty in the yard with hubs. Your kitty is darling!
I'd love to see your duvet cover! I love my alabaster lamp, I really wanted to wait until I saw one in person too but I couldn't find any so I took the plunge on ebay and have no regrets. I love it and can't wait to find another. Soon as my latest purchases arrive I will start searching ebay for another. lol

chateau chic said...

Call me crazy, but digging a hole for a wonderful tree is better than roses!

Terra said...

Now thats a wonderful husband, and I am impressed by the size of the tree. Your kitty is a helper, I can see.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Can't wait to see the beautiful tree planted...!!
