This post was originally posted on my first blog on paintinpatti.typepad.com. Since I am behind on posts, I thought I would repost it here. I love this story.
It's because of my husband's gracious nature that I have these precious dishes. Lots of blogging friends have them; maybe you do, too!
It all started when I was blogging and saw an adorable two-tiered red gingham rimmed tray on the cute Sweet Bee Cottage blog.
I squealed loudly, "OH MY GOSH - that is the cutest thing!" Hubs walked around my shoulder and said, "what is it?" When I told him to look at this adorable red gingham two-tiered tray, and that it was at Homegoods he said, "well get dressed and lets go get one!"
I was in my pajamas. It was 8:30. I go to sleep at 8:30 on school nights.
But, he insisted. Seriously. He insisted. He even called Homegoods to see what time they closed.
So, I got dressed and we went - and I felt silly - but, he said, "what if it is the last one and you miss out?"
Well, when we got to Homegoods and I saw ALL the dishes they had in this pattern - I screamed again, "THESE ARE THE CUTEST DISHES I HAVE EVER SEEN!"
Hubs replied, "I'll just go back up the truck to the door, Honey. You load up the cart!"
I couldn't believe my ears. He reminded me that it was our 35th wedding year - and I ought too have new dishes for the occasion. Well, how could I say no, girls? This meant a lot to him...wink, wink!
Needless to say, I have a lot of dishes - but, I love these the most. Hubs bought them for me - he got me out of my pj's and romantically whisked me away to my favorite store. Isn't that just the most romantic story you have heard today? :)
Stay tuned for more dishes stories - I have lots of dishes and lots of stories.
I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday!
It's Sweet Beverly's birthday!
So please pop over and wish her a happy day!
If you look closely there is a bit of pink on these dishes. Besides, red and white make pink, so without red, where would pink be? I love both colors!
Blessings to you and yours!
I hope you have fun with your family this week.
