My Husband Rocks!

I've been slacking at posting to the blog lately. Been pretty busy and the past few Fridays I've been out and about. But today I must tell you why my husband rocks! I got this idea from Katy Lin over at The Great Adventure. So go on over there and get signed up!

This week I took a look at my couch and decided it was time to shampoo it. Usually when I shampoo it, just hours later there is a mess on it. Thanks to having 4 kids and a sometimes clumsy husband. (shh...) I went ahead and decided to do it cause it was seriously grossing me out. It was so bad that I didn't bother taking before pics. Not like I'd ever show anyone. ick.
Anyway, when Jarrett came home and saw the clean couch he said, WOW! What a difference the clean couch makes! Before, no matter how much I cleaned the house, the couch being dirty made the house look filthy. He rocks because he's trying really hard to keep the couch clean. He pulled out an extra mattress we have and has been using it to sit on to watch tv. He said we're keeping the mattress out and when we have company come by we'll move the mattress out of the living room and have a clean couch. HAHA! He's so funny. But I know he's doing this because he knows how much time it takes for me to get that couch clean. So here's a pic I took of him. I couldn't resist. He's covered in Karly's Dora blanket and drinking his tea from her zoo cup. (the fan is in the pic cause I was using it to dry the couch)

*If you get a chance, you really should take a look at what Jamie over at Rose Cottage posted. It's a wonderful post about marriage.

That is so sweet. :) Ony a real man and true hubby/father could relax covered in the cutie blankie and look so comfortable. :) How kind of him to want to save you from cleaning the couch again. Oh, and by the way, if you lived close by, my hubby would surely fix the truck, lol.

It takes quite a manly man to cuddle up with a Dora blanket!

Thanks for linking up to me! I hope my post blesses someone today!
