FAB Hubbies & Blog Surprise B-day Party for Jen!

Can I just say that yesterday's Blogathon has caused my fingers to FALL off! LOL I'm typing with my elbows. I know, pretty darn impressive, eh? Sometimes I just surprise myself. ;-) I have been trying to get back to all my computer froze like 28,372 times. Seriously, THAT many times. I think it's trying to tell me something. The laundry, dishes and all other house chores teamed up against me with my laptop to make me STOP THE BLOGGY MADNESS! I'm strong though. I will not be blogged out. ;-)

So, I just love b-days and I LOVE surprise parties just as much. Something I love EVEN MORE is when an oh-so-fabulous hubby want to surprise his wife with something fun for her b-day! Can I getta witnesssss????

I got an email from Jen's hubby asking to join in a surprise blog party for his oh-so-lovely wife. He contacted all her fave blogs in hopes that we would throw a party post for her to celebrate her 29th birthday!! YAAAAAY! I LOVE THAT!

So everyone...join me in wishing Jen a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Go over to her blog "Buried With Children"and tell her I sent ya...tell her HAPPY 29th!!

Yaay for Jen's hubby...let's give him a round of applause, too! :-)

***So, SPEAKING OF FABULOUS HUBBIES .... Let me tell you about MY rockingly AWESOME hubby and what he did for me the night before my girls weekend. He took a bazillion photos of the baby (and even changed outfits!!), went to the drugstore, came home and then put the pictures in a photo album so that I would have her near me while on the trip!!! He secretly wrapped it up and packed it in my suitcase. HELLO???!?!?! He SO deserves FATHER/HUBBSTER of the YEAR award, eh?? He's awesome.

Ahhhh just thinking about him makes me happy....which leads me to other things that make me happy (not nearly as happy the hubbster) ... DEALS! Here ya go! goodness:

Mamarazzi said...

YAY for FAb hubs! SO sweet and i love surprises!


YES SITSathon was F-U-N!!

great deals i am off to go click away!

lynette355 said...

What fantastic hubbies! We are so lucky to have them. Yes, even when they are into "tv/remote mode".
And typing with your elbows. I knew you had talent!

lynette355 said...


You won! Yes You Won

Pam Warden Print is Melanie of Pennies in My Pocket

You won from SITS yesterday.



Jen said...

That is an awesome thing that your hubby did! I love it. And thanks for helping make my day so special.

Unknown said...

What a great hubby! Lucky you!

Mandy said...

Yay for hubby! He sounds dreamy.

What surprises me? Not much these days. :)

Kristen said...

Please tell me that you know you won something yesterday! I just about jumped out of my skin, I was so excited for you. Hubby is sitting here reading the Word before he goes to work and laughed at me when I gasped and did a little dance while singing "Melody won! she won! someone I know won!" Congratulations and thanks again for the link yesterday. It was so fun.

Heather said...

I'm so excited you won! I'm not jealous at all. Nope, not at all.

Okay, maybe a little. But I kinda had a feeling that with all those 3 gazillion comments, my chances were small. But I am truly glad someone I "know" won. Really, I am.

And your hubby totally deserves an award. That was so thoughtful!

Jess said...


*high fives Pennies hubb*

What suprises me?

When my husband programs the coffee maker without telling me and I come downstairs to find coffee already hot and ready! Instead of yelling at the thing because I forgot to set it up :)

Huse Yo Mama said...

YOU rock, your hubby rocks, your Cuddle Bug rocks!! Is there anything wrong with y'all!?

Don't worry about responding to me - it hurts typing with your elbows.

My favorite surprise...well, since there are so few surprises in my life (I was going to just say life, but apparently, your hubby surprises you nicely and my hubby isn't secretive enough so I just said life)....anyhow...not finding out the sex of my baby was the best surprise.

I'm pretty sure that paragraph doesn't make sense. At all.

Jeff said...

Thanks for helping make Jen's birthday so special. She really enjoyed her surprise. Your husband's idea was great. I don't know if I could have brought myself to do all the clothes changing and whatnot -- if it was up to me, we'd just turn up the heat in the house and everyone who wasn't potty trained would run around in diapers.

Anonymous said...

What a sweet husband BOTH of you have! When I come home from work and any of the house cleaning is done by my husband--that's what surprises me the most!

Fifi Flowers said...

THe BEST surprise is when the men in house actually do things without the ONLY princess in the house having to ask! Like take out the trash, empty the dish washer, make their beds (that's a rare one), rinse out their dishes, feed the dogs... oh and anybody that folds and puts anyway clothes gets BROWNIE points... and NO, I don't make brownies... LOL... hate to bake!
Ok... on that note... I'm off... but don't forget to stop by I'm having a GIVEAWAY for my 200th post! Although I don't know that you qualify since you WON a prize from SITS... LOL... just kidding! CONGRATS!
ENJOY your day!

Brooke said...

I love it when hubbies do great things like that. That is what surprises me most, when my hubby does something nice out of the blue. (Not that he is not nice and fabulous all the time!) But it just makes me love him that much more when he goes above and beyond the norm. He is not the most romantical (yes I made that up) guy so it is so great when he decides to be! :) Love you pookie. ha ha

Anonymous said...

I just used the deal that you posted yesterday for the restaurant site and paid $8 for $100 worth of gift certificates!!! THANK YOU!!

I just love sweet hubbies like that! That is so sweet of your hubby to even think of putting the photos together.

What surprises me is the sun every morning! lol I wish I could sleep in! haha

Tabitha Blue said...

Aww, that's is so sweet of those wonderful hubbies... I'll go wish her a happy b-day for sure! What a great gift for you for your trip too!! What a sweetie-pie!! He deserves some good lovin'!! :)

Ps. You've been tagged... hope you want to play. Check out my blog to see what's in store! :)

tiarastantrums said...

your hubbie is so nice - let's you have a girls weekend AND give s the photo album to you. Why did I get a zero on hubbies with a brain?! Just kidding - my hubbie is great - just NOT in those areas!!

Aleta said...

Congratulations as I see that you won at SITS. I'm new to the group and looking forward to reading all the wonderful blogs.

How absolutely sweet of your husband to do that ~ pictures are precious.

Oh and I saw that you used to own a wedding company? Oh, I could use some help. Do you blog about wedding ideas? I have one coming up in January!

Holly said...

Wow, what a great surprise your husband gave you! He totally rocks.

Unknown said...

nice find on the wheel!!!

Susie said...

I know...tJen's husband is amazing. The talk is that it is going to be really hard to top:-)

Stephanie said...

seriously, the blogging was madness! haha! But your husband is super sweet!! Hope your blog hangover is alright, they say the best cure is more blogs. Who knew? haha!

Anonymous said...

Wow, typing with your elbows? You'll have tennis elbow before you know it!

Your hubby sounds dreamy! That's just so sweet of him and sweet of Jen's hubby, too!

Great deals! We're looking for a GPS and I don't know anything about them either! I'll pass this on to my hubby. Maybe he'll be a dream and get it for me. :)

Love your blog. Thinking maybe I should start one. Looks like so much fun!

Michelle said...

She has a very clever hubby!

Michelle said...

The question......well, after yesterday I'm surprised that my head didn't explode from spending so much time on the computer!

Heather said...

What a cute thing for your hubby to do!! And for Jen's hubby to do!!

angie said...

That is the sweetest thing ever that your husband did for you. Since there are so few sweet surprises going on around here, I told my boyfriend that he has to do 1 sweet thing a week. And that I will be keeping it all written down in a notebook. Pitiful.

Crystal Rae said...

Awwww...that was real sweet of her hubby. I did go by and wish her a happy birthday! Thanks for the heads up! I really enjoy reading your blogs. Great deals!!!

Beth said...

What surprises me the most???

The fact that I don't have a fabulous Hubster of my very own!!! Wow! Whatta DOLL!

And I have loooong been a fan of silver jewelry club dot com!! I can't tell you how many fabulous pieces I have! It was a serious addiction for a me and a friend of mine. We had to go to rehab. Seriously.

Natalia said...

I'm so thankful to have found your blog.

It is such a fantastic resource.

Mary Anna said...

Sweet hubbies are wonderful! I have a good one!!!

What surprises me? Lack of manners. I'm from The South, which means we say "Please" and "Thank you" and "Bless you."

Once, I was at our grocery store and a gentleman sneezed. I said "Bless you," just like my mama taught me. He growled back, "I don't know you" and stormed off. Bless his heart - his mama must not've raised him right!

(Thanks for visiting, Miss Sista! I gave you shout-outs because you're fabo!)

"The Queen in Residence" said...

Carpet tunnel is in our future and they will link it all to the bloggy love we get.

So fun to wish Jen a happy birthday. And what great hubbies.... I love great hubby stories. Those guys do not get enough credit.

I will have to go and see what you won....

Kelsey said...

Both of those husbands win husband of the year awards! Do they have any brothers? haha.

I'm pretty sure I experienced a blog hang over too! I may have fallen asleep in gym today..nice. Real nice.

Congrats on winning one of the blog a thon prizes! I forget what it was, but I know I saw your name.

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Girl I know what you mean....I didn't jump on the blogathon until 7:30pm....I blogged until midnight....than I had my BATW feature today. I will be catching up tomorrow cause I'm too tired to get to all of them to say thanks! We had my daughters bday dinner here tonight. Its been a crazy week.

Yay for your hubby!!! How sweet that was! and Jens hubby wow....I love when men do things like that...that just melt our heart.
Thanks for coming by my tour!

feather k said...

I nominated you for a blog award...check it out, when your fingers are working again :)

OklahomaMomma said...

What a sweetie of a husband! Sounds like he's a keeper. :)
What surpises me the most? I love surprises but usually figure them out because I'm nosy and very observant. I usually know all my Christmas gifts before I even open them!

Mozi Esme said...

Yeah for great husbands!

Nel said...

Hurray to great husbands! we are blessed to have one, indeed!


Casey's trio said...

I am trying to get through my list of fab SISTStas who came to visit on Tuesday. It was such a fun day!
Love Jen and I think that her hubby was so thoughtful with her bday surprise. Your man sounds like a keeper too!

My First Kitchen said...

So cute about the birthday shoutout. I'm so glad you stopped by and thinking my blog is awesome awesomeness. That's seriously the best compliment my site has gotten; I thank you. :) I hope you come back again! I'm enjoying looking around!

Cynthia said...

Great Husband!
