made with love. tastes better too!


Ryan and I think that a sandwich tastes better if someone else made it. So when we have sandwiches for lunch, we will stand side by side, and make each other's sandwich :)

What funny things do you and your spouse do for each other?

ps. do you like the new granite? before/after pics are coming as soon as the backsplash is finished!

We think sandwiches made by the other person tastes better too! :)

At the moment I can not for the life of me think of something we do for each other. :) My mind went blank!

Love the granite!

Dianne said...

That's a great idea~I'll have to try that sometime :) Granite looks lovely!

Trish said...

How sweet, I love that idea!

Bar 7 Ranch said...

I agree! Great idea!!

Cat said...

My husband thinks anything I make for him tastes better! But my "secret" is that he "tucks" me in every night. He has done it for 5 years! :)

I enjoy your blog--been a "lurker" for a while!

Bill wakes up before me and scrapes my car and starts it too. :) Its very sweet, but sometimes he has to leave before me and I go crazy trying to find my keys w/o thinking they are actually in my car.

I keep his car stashed with protein bars and slim jims and water since he is always on the run and doesn' t have time to even stop at fast food joints.

There's many more little things I love that we do for each other, but I'm not wanting you to gag! :P

Thats so sweet and I Love the counter..

Samantha said...

We think that too! :-) I also feel the same way about sandwiches, if someone else prepares it, it tastes much better.

The Cohen's said...

Wow, I totally agree with that! A sandwich always tastes better when someone else makes it. Me and my husband will have to try that.

Kathi said...

I totally agree, what a great idea!

I know this is a total faux paux... but when you go from career people to por college students you have to give things up... so we gave up my salon trips. Now when I cut his hair he cuts and highlights mine. It's worked out great because we've found that he's a natural at cutting and coloring hair! He also doesn't let me get too crazy with my styles anymore!

Anything made by someone else (especially someone you love) tastes better!

My husband and I take turns baking treats for each other. We both have a wild sweet tooth. My favorite, though, is how we'll "talk" to each other through IMs on the computer when we are only a room away.

Kelly Gray said...

run my bath water....oooohhhh what a treat!

I thought you were a total whacko when you first told me this. ;-)

It's so cute though!

The Powell Family said...

How cute are you guys! I would have to agree though, having someone else make me a sandwich, even if it were just a good ole pb&j tastes better.

My husband loves to make me German Pancakes! It's just one of those things that he loves that he wants me to love too, so he makes them frequently for me. While he does that I scramble him some eggs, because he is a protein freak and would never have pancakes without some form of protein. Funny! :) Cute post.

I really like it! It looks a lot like mine and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. Wonder if it's the same stuff? That's sweet of you and your hubby. I agree, food always tastes better when someone else makes it!

Celeste said...

I feel the same way!! LOL
Sandwiches made by someone else REALLY DO taste better! :)

...and, YES! I *love* the granite! Can't wait to see the pics - because we need to do our backsplash too {need some inspiration!} ;)

HA! I will just say what every one else said, AGREED!

I wake up to the smell of a cup of coffee on my nightstand, and he prides himself in making it "my" color. I will say to him as he is leaving for work, you should go to the driving range tonight. He loves that...

So cute!

We scratch one another's backs....

Debra said...

I completly agree! Everything is always better when done by someone else!

Mrs Soup said...

So very very true!

We make each other tea. It always tastes better when the other person makes it. For sure.

KarenandJason said...

couldn't agree more, we're ALWAYS making each other's sandwiches... especially when it's peanut butter and jelly.

I do love your new granite... can't wait to see before/after pics, those are my favorite!

IrishBelle318 said...

My boyfriend and I do that with sandwiches, breakfast, dinner, anything that involves cooking really. Hahaha!

Princess Hairstyles said...

How cute! My hubby and I sometimes do dishes together. It really does make it more fun. Btw, I love the granite!!

Southern GFCF said...

This is so sweet!

I feel the same, and about salads - they are so much more enjoyable when made by someone else.

Katy said...

Yes, salads and sandwiches always are better when someone else makes them.

My husband and I don't get cards for each other that often - it all started on Valentines Day 4 or 5 years ago. We didn't like how expensive cards are and then you have to store them for forever. So while doing a little shopping at Target on Valentines Day, we stopped in the card section, split up, rejoined after 5 minutes, and "gave" each other the cards we picked out. We picked out the most expensive, elaborate cards, said "aww! thank you", then just put them back (we didn't write in them:). It was fun!

tifsong said...

hello! i just wanted to let you know how pleased i am with my delicate little necklace. i had you make two of the exact same, with a dove?! yes. my sister loves hers, too. thank you so very much for them! you're lovely.

Rebecca said...

Whomever brushes their teeth first at night 'loads up' the others with toothpaste. It's silly but we've been doing it for years! :)

Farmgirl Susan said...

I love that you stand together making each others' sandwiches. That is so cute. I know my hunky farmguy and I must do something sweet like that for each other, but like Makila, my mind has just gone blank. I do know the lattes he makes me always taste much better than the ones I make myself - of course always tells me he adds a big dollop of love to the cup. :)

Corrin said...

Sandwiches definitely taste better when someone else makes them! My husband is the official toasty cheese chef in our house.

Katy~The Country Blossom said...

I agree that things taste better when someone else makes them...what a cute idea you guys have going on there! Chris and I may have to give that a try! ;)
