Happy Valentines Day Everyone! We have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Valentines day over here. For MANY years, we mostly hated it since we were in a long distance relationship. Once we were finally together, we couldn’t really celebrate because February happens to be the craziest time at work. I.e. working ’till 10pm and working weekends.
Now that I’m in a new role at work, there is a bit more freedom to celebrate. Yet, it doesn’t seem as exciting as it did when we were 20 haha. You can’t win.
However, I wanted to write a special post today to celebrate my hubby. Yet every time I sat down to write, I couldn’t really come up with something to share. I’m sure many bloggers feel this way, but trying to balance how much to share and how much to keep private is hard. And on this particular topic, I realize the words won’t come to me because they aren’t something I want to share.
So, instead of a writing a sappy post for my husband (don’t worry he will get a Valentine’s Day card) I will celebrate us with a grocery list.
Yes, haha, today I’m going to share snippets from our grocery list.
Why you may ask?
Well, since we’ve been married, we’ve split the household duties. He cleans, I do laundry. He bathes the dog, I go to the grocery store.
To make grocery store runs easier, he started a shared notes on our phone where we can both add items that we need as we run out. In our two + years of marriage, this list has been the culprit of many giggles at the grocery store. In fact, I’ve shared a few items on my Confessional Thursday. Something so simple, yet he uses it to make me laugh. The best part is that I can go back on the notes app and see every single item that’s been on the list the last two years.
Snippets from our list… as in items he’s actually written on the list
+ Healthy shits
+ Healthy crap
+ Cheap napkins (not sure when I’ve ever purchased expensive napkins requiring this clarification)
+ Chicken for pasta (as opposed to the non-pasta destined chicken?)
+ Emergency pizza (as the name implies – for emergencies…hunger emergencies)
+ Emergency box of brownies (to go with the emergency pizza?)
+ Hair color thing (I really don’t remember what this meant since neither of us color our hair)
+ Chia pets (this is what he started calling the chia pudding pouches since the only time he’d ever heard of chia was on the chia pet infomercials)
+ Apple pets (the name then evolved to describe anything in a pouch, including apple sauce pouches)
+ Orange juice (with an orange emoji for clarification)
+ *smiley face poop emoji* paper
+ I would like to try those baked vegetable things (he actually wrote that out)
+ Toilet cleaning shits (this is just like “healthy shits”, it provides no information. Do we need cleaning liquid? a brush? cleaning wipes?)
+ Bigger Ziplocs (umm? bigger than which ones?)
+ Trailmix for me
+ Trailmix for you (I guess we can’t share the trailmix)
and my very favorite:
+ chcusjdgsshas sauce (he meant Worcestershire sauce)
This guy should be a professional grocery list writer.
I love you babe, Happy Valentine’s Day!
(and Happy Valentine’s day to all my lovely readers! take this day to let those people around you know that you love and appreciate them! even with a simple hi, or I’m thinking of you)
