Why My Husband is Hotter Than My Coffee

No, my blog hasn’t been hacked – the title is true.  My husband is hotter than my coffee.  I’m lucky in love.  True, I’m a romantic at heart.  Who doesn’t love a good Lifetime movie?  (Don’t lie…fess up here…!)  But honestly, my husband is top-notch.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back (Earn Money Each Time you Shop! Seriously, why not??!!!)

The roles in our house have been reversed for the past 6 years.  Outside the “norm” of what society considers acceptable.  Yep, my hubs is a stay-at-home-dad.  He is like a manny, but…my manny.  My arm candy, if you will. 😉  Ha, just kidding.  But, he is one heck of a stay-at-home dad.  I’ve never met someone so patient, loving and kind.  He is surrounded by 3 Alpha females day in, and day out – and he holds his own.  Do we override him on certain things?  Of course.   Choose your battles, right?

What melts my heart more than anything is the bond that he has with our girls.  Admit it ladies (and gents), staying at home with kids is HARD work.  It’s never-ending, its underappreciated and probably one of the harshest, and wrongly, judged “professions” by those who have never done it.  Believe me, I’ve been there.  It. is. hard.  It is lonely.  It is 24/7.  Think maid/personal shopper/taxi driver/cook/psychologist/stuffed animal doctor/imagination station/craft king/coffee addict all wrapped into one body.  and that is just poking the surface.  100% worth it, but 100% the hardest job I’ve ever done as well.

So, why is my husband hotter than my coffee?

For starters, he puts himself last.  Always.  Now, that alone isn’t the reason – but the fact that he does it without even realizing it., all the time…is the reason.  He is unselfish and kind.  and giving.  He gives us the middle to his Oreos, the last bites of his ice cream, the food off his plate after we tell him we aren’t hungry and then he makes something so delicious that we are jealous and want to try a bite….and he does it all without hesitation.

He likes puns.  Better yet, he understands puns and he can deliver some zingers.  A man who has a way with words and the ability to use his mind too?  Yes please.  (BTW- a little late humor here but “How does the moon cut his hair?  Eclipse it.”)

He is one of the most devoted dads I’ve ever known.  His girls are his world. He laughs with them, cries with them, understands them, communicates with them and knows exactly when they need a hug or some space to be alone.  His interaction and bond with them is something others admire, especially me.  At times when I want to grab a Snickers and run hide in the closet for some “me” time, he is right in the middle of everything communicating and handling it.  Calmly.

He is down for my craziness.  I’m sporadic, I’m last-minute, I’m chaotic, but he sees past that and knows my heart is true.

He supports my drive and passion for life.  and trust me, I’m passionate about a lot of varying things.  Sometimes they change daily, but no matter what, he’s my sounding board.  I have a tendency to have what I like to call “word vomit” where I say things and as they are coming out of my mouth, I just can’t seem to stop them…and then they’re out there.  He gets this.  He knows this…and he doesn’t judge me for it.

Marriage….true love!  (Princess Bride…get it?)

He let’s me dream big without trying to ground my daydreams. (One day, I want to be a travelling hippie.  He’s down.)  I dream of starting my own bookstore, he’s researching storefronts that I can rent.  I dream of blogging for a living, he’s proofreading my posts.   I dream of traveling the country, he researches sidecars to hitch on to his motorcycle for a real adventure.   Down for it all.

He challenges me mentally with stimulating conversation.  I’m still working on doing the same for him…but, it’s a work in process.  My vocabulary has expanded extensively since I’ve met him, and I’m thankful for that.  He’s improved my confidence in myself and my abilities.

I’m lucky in life.  I’m lucky in love. and I’m lucky to have a husband that I’m addicted to, like I am my coffee. 😉

      They are out there!

  4. Aleah says:

    That is so sweet. There aren’t too many men out like your husband. I can see why you appreciate him so much. It must be nice to be married to someone like that. Loved this post!

  5. Bobbie says:

    It’s so cool that he is a stay at home dad. My father in law stayed home with my hubby and his brother for a bit. What did he do prior? 🙂

    1. Thena says:

      He was a sales manager prior to being a stay at home dad.

  6. I love that title! It’s so sweet. And also for me, my husband is hotter than anything!

  7. Ashley says:

    Sounds like a keeper! I love that you keep your thoughts so positive. I’m sure he’s lucky to have you, too!

  8. Michelle says:

    I love this..it’s so important to be in love with your partner. When I got married we made a pact that our relationship would never be mediocre. It requires effort, but it’s awesome when you can look at them and truly just know they are the one for you!

  9. Jen Temcio says:

    I can not imagine having a husband that is so supportive and invested. You are so appreciative of him. It sounds like you are a perfect match.

  10. Saidy says:

    Awhh… reminds me so much of my boyfriend, absolutely adore this post. Thank you 👍🏻

  13. What a wonderful affirmation of how fab your husband is! I think mine is pretty great, too 🙂 Aren’t we super lucky!

  14. Edith says:

    What a blessed woman you are! I love that he proofreads your blogs posts haha! Wish mine would do that, but definitely a addicted to him too, but more than ice-cream since that’s my weakness. Love that you shout him out, best wishes always!

  15. The title is quite funny. Such a nice post for your husband! Looks like you found your match and I am truly happy for you! You’re a lucky woman and he is a lucky man to have you by his side! 🙂

  16. What a fun read! Your husband sounds like a great guy – and your relationship sounds wonderful too.

    My husband also loves puns, so I loved that bit. Mine also loves to do accents, speaks two languages fluently and a couple of others in limited phrases. So he likes to make bilingual puns and double-entendres. He’s one of the only people who can reliably make me laugh.

    1. Thena says:

      Wow, he sounds like a lot of fun!!!

  17. Quen says:

    OMG how sweet! You guys are definitely relationship goals!!

  18. I like this post; it is so good to just stop and think about the good things about the people that we share our lives with. It is easy to get caught up in the bad.

    Best regards,

    Pedro

I’ve not been lucky enough to meet the right one and I’m not sure if it will happen (and that’s ok too) But reading this warms my heart up. You ALL sound incredibly lucky to have such a happy and balanced life, tending to each others needs and caring for one another. He sounds like a really great man and I think not only are you lucky to have him but he is probably very glad to have a lady who thinks of him in this way <3

  101. Kim says:

    Your husband must be so appreciative of this post!! I’m sure you tell him these things in real life, but according to my husband (who’s not a stay at home dad) it’s always good to hear how much someone notices the little things.

  102. Nabeha says:

    Your husband is goals!

  103. Ana Ro says:

    This is sooo nice that in a marriage you are still in love! I especially loved the part where he lets you dream big and supports you in this. And I’m so happy I can write this without any pang of jealousy, because my husband is also like that! Hi five for great husbands! 🙂
