Reason #156 Why Husband Rocks

When asked what he wanted for his 30th birthday, he said the following:

"Don't worry about getting me anything. For my birthday, I'm taking you to Napa to stay in one of the historic bed and breakfasts. We're going to have a picnic lunch, spend the afternoon wine tasting, and then go out for a nice dinner. I've already made the reservations."


I think the awesomeness of this gesture speaks for itself.

Other items from my list of Top 500 Reasons Why Husband Rocks:

--He is a wonderful father to Little Guy, a hard worker, and a good role model.

--He is affectionate. He likes to cuddle.

--He supports me in all of my decisions, including the decision to stay home part-time with Little Guy.

--He cooks and cleans and shares all of the household chores equally.

--He never yells. Never. I am not exaggerating. And yet he puts up with me and my crazy tantrums.

--He chose to spend his birthday with me in Napa over letting his friends throw a wild bash for him this weekend.
So, Happy Birthday, babe. I'm so happy to have shared the last 10 years with you. Here's to many more.


To anyone considering a vacation to Napa, I highly recommend the McClelland-Priest Bed and Breakfast. It was quite fabulous. Our room was under $200 a night and included a private balcony, fireplace, and jacuzzi. And the room price included passes to a ton of wineries for complimentary tastings, an evening wine reception, and a scrumptious breakfast. If I didn't have a Little Guy waiting at home for me, I would have been truly sad to leave!

See, now I know you're making this up. No man cooks and cleans and cuddles. Uh uh. I don't believe it.

Happy Birthday to your "Husband". He sounds like quite the catch. :)

He DOES rock! Glad you had a good time.

Not quite as romantic, but as I got up this past Sunday, for no apparent reason, D. was fixing me breakfast ... scambled eggs, turkey bacon, raisin toast, coffee ... something he's never done before! Hope he's not up to something!

Oh, how cute is that? He is one lucky guy, too. Glad you had such a wonderful time, and that you have a loving partner to share it all with. Napa is one of my favorite places ever. Have you seen my blog? It's all about the wine, Cristina. All about the wine. *LOL*

Your husband? Awesome! Seriously.

While my husband may not dig the winery part so much (and I'll be honest, I'm not much of a wine drinker myself) he'd totally go for the B&B. I may have to put a bug in his ear...

I'm glad you had a good time. What a sweet gesture!

And my husband says thank you for leaving that comment saying how sweet he is on my post about him being stuck on the roof.

Wow. What a great guy. I guess that is the theme today. Something must be in the air because I did a "my husband rocks" post today too. Sometimes we just need to make an effort to voice how great they really are. Sounds like a heavenly weekend. I hope he got lucky for his birthday. wink.
