Wake Up Wednesday


So, Cheri is out of town still so she had me of all people (her non-crafty husband) write this post for her.  So last weeks challenge was to give compliments.  I went out of my way this week to make sure Cheri knew how proud I was of her for going on Martha Stewart.  She is soooo dedicated to this blog, spends a lot of time and effort to make it something all of you will come back to see, day after day.  I'm happy to see her have an opportunity to reap the rewards of her efforts this last week by spending some time with her sisters and be on a TV show (note: its not the first time she's been on TV before, ask her about it sometime).  I'm one lucky guy for having such a wonderfully talented and hot Momma!  BTW Cheri says she gave lots of compliments this week, too.  I'll vouch for her since she is usually pretty good about this.

This weeks challenge is do something especially nice for your significant other.  While Cheri made me promise to "keep it clean" I'll let each of you decide what your spouse, boyfriend, whatever, would enjoy the most.  It could be something as simple as a well thought out letter, a special date to their favorite restaurant, a delicious baked good.  Use your imagination and try something new!  If you don't have a significant other right now pick a close friend of the opposite sex and do something nice for them.  Who knows, maybe it will help you gain a significant other.

Ciao!

  1. Aww! You did a great job with the post (non-crafty husband of Cheri!)I was a little early with my wake up Wednesday...yesterday, I made my husband's all time favorite meal...crock pot bbq ribs. He was a happy dude! Hope you and your boys are planning something extra special for Cheri's return. :)

  3. Hi,

    Sorry I don't know your name or I would have greeted you with it. You did just fine filling in for Cheri. You are correct when you say she spends time making this blog just right. I am a non-blogger but the quality shines through. You have a very talented wife and unfortunately I don't have TV at my house so I can't watch her on Martha. I hope you and the boys are just fine and that Cheri has a great experience in NYC.

    Sincerely,

    Maureen

  10. Hello Roaring Dad, how cool of you to fill in! Guess you're the blog deputy now, better get used to it ;-)

    I actually just did this weeks challenge by gifting my partner some vouchers I made for him. They are for things he really loves, and are mostly SQUEAKY-clean like a voucher for sleeping in while I get up with our toddler son, or a voucher for a bag of his favourite nuts (and that one was handed in pretty fast!). Others are slightly more 'messy', like the one involving massage oil ;-)

    It was fun to think of things that he would realy love, and discover that most of them do not involve stuff you buy (like with ordinary presents). That was quite an eye-opener actually. To let him sleep for an extra hour or two in the weekend is worth much more to him than anything I could buy in a shop (eh, well not anything but you know what I mean). So it's another good challenge!

  11. Well done Mr. Roar! You're a natural! You will have to guest post more often - not that I don't love Cheri, It's just fun hearing from you too. This week I wrote a thank you card to my ex mother-in-law complimenting her on something she had done for my kids. It wasn't an easy thing, she's kind of awful (I even thought that before she was my mother in law or my ex mother in law, so this isn't the bitter talking:) But I did it, and even though she called me up to make rude comments about my hand writing rather than to thank me for the card, I still felt good about it. It's one of those kill them with kindness things - I won:)

  14. What day will Cheri be on the Martha Stewart show? Just wondering, so I can DVR it. I definitely don't want to miss it! :)

  15. I am so excited to hear the news of her guest app on Martha's show! You know you've made it when that happens. I imagine she is having a ball and will enjoy that buzz for a long time.

    Great to hear from you and in the spirit of the Challenge, you are doing an amazing job!

  20. Oh, I forgot to tell you that after reading this post I made my husband his favorite cookies! It may seem silly but I HATE to bake! :) They came out pretty good too. Maybe love is the ingredient I've been missing. Thanks for encouraging all of us!
