BOLD Valentine's Day

Today I am featuring a post from a follower of Love, Actually, Katie Wallace at My Life as a Wallace. This is something her husband did for her last year...and it's such a great idea!
Her husband gave her a card with instructions to read it out loud and stop when she got to a bolded word. Each time she stopped, she got a present.

Here was what he wrote:
Katie, I just wanted you to know that I love with all my heart. I'm sorry sometimes when you don't know enough. Unfortunately for you we will be SHACKed [The book; "I knew you needed something to read and I've heard this is really good." He said. I've heard that too.] up together forever so you have to deal with me. Hopefully I can prove not to be like a COUPON [coupons for him to wash the dishes...this could possibly be my favorite gift] and you will get exactly what you paid for with me. I want our love to be so amazing that people have to buy TICKETS [To see the theatrical version of The Crucible on Thursday, which will help me mark another thing off my 101 list!] just to get to see it. I promise to be a good husband and not WINE [a bottle of wine! I am in shock that my husband bought a bottle of wine...craziness] when I am unhappy but to put you first and love you with all my heart.
Your hubby,
Cody

Such a cute idea, right? The world needs more guys like him...way to snag a good one, Katie! Thanks for letting me share!

I'm taking orders for the Love Checks for 2 more days--after that, I'm spending the Valentine's Day weekend AWAY from my computer and with my hubby! So, be sure to email me right away if you want to order! As an added bonus: anyone who contacts me today will receive 20% off their order! (sorry, this does not apply to orders previously placed!)

That is very cute!! P.S. I used the muffin tin advent calendar I saw on here a while ago for my husband (post on my blog now). I'm not real crafty but that was easy enough, and he loves it so far!

Shari said...

Cher, what ever happened with starting a site just for guys? This would be a good one to put on that. I asked my husband last night about plans for V Day and he said "Huh. Let's talk about that". heh

Lindsay said...

Jen said...

What a creative and thoughtful husband! I love this idea... if only I could come up with something as clever!

Cher said...

Who needs to come up with anything clever when it's already here for you? He doesn't need to know that you didn't ACTUALLY come up with it yourself... :) I'm all about lying for the sake of your marriage... :)

Tara said...

Katie said...
