He's a keeper!

You know, it truely is the little things that make the difference. Chris (most of the time) is a hardass and typical redneck country boy. He does nice things for me, but most of the time, it is nothing huge, but those little things make the world of difference.

Last week, I was having a bad week dealing with my car (which is finally fixed). Thursday afternoon we got some pretty good showers and Chris left work early. He went shopping for me something to cheer me up. I thought he was just at the house the entire time. I get to the house and we are getting ready to fix dinner. I made some smart ass comment to him and he just looks at the pups and tells them that he doesn't think he should give me my present anymore. I was confused, but eventually he pulls up his shirt to expose a little black case attached to his belt. He had bought me a new gun!!! I know, I know, girls are supposed to get jewely and flowers. Not me. My man gets me a pistol. So, everyone, here is the newest addition to our gun collection. A Taurus .380 TCP

Last night, I was again reminded how great of a catch he is. Chris has always been great with children and it always brings a smile to my face to see him with kids. To us, our pups are like our children. They are spoiled and typically do what they want and get what they want. They go everywhere with us and are hardly every left at home. We were at the house last night after having dinner with my parents. We were down to one rawhide bone for the boys. Worried about a fight, Chris said we should probably just put it up and I did. Then he disappeared off into another room and reappeared with a hand saw. He actually cut the bone in half so there was no fight and no one had to do without. He is going to be such a wonderful dad!!!

There are so many times I wonder how it is that I got so lucky!


  1. Aw! He puts up a tough-guy front but he's such a sweetheart deep down :)

  2. That is so sweet :) and it's great that he knows the things that will make you happy. I love the story about the bone. That sounds like something my mom would do!
