Just Because

This morning my little alarm woke me up right at 6:56 am.
I'm telling you, Noah has an internal alarm clock set for that time.
I wish I knew where his snooze button was.

So anyway, I stumbled out of bed to get Noah out of his crib, and
before I knew it he was running around the house like a wild little Indian.

How does he have so much energy in the morning?
Yeah, I'm still trying to figure that one out.

Oh, right. He's a toddler.

As I walked into the kitchen to get Noah started on some milk,
I saw all this stuff sitting on our kitchen countertop.
Then I laid my eyes on something so lovely and so pink.
My heart skipped a beat.
A Gerber daisy-- my favorite!


Can you say gorgeous!
Did my hubby really get me a flower?
Yes, yes he did.
Just because.

Then I glanced down and saw a white piece
of paper with something written on it.

It said,
Today is National Donut Day, so I thought
my little Donut could use some donut holes
and chocolate milk {in the fridge}.
I also got you a Weight Watchers Egg McMuffin.
It's in the freezer if you want it. Love you!

How sweet is that?!
Josh worked all night long, but instead of coming straight home to get in bed,
he stopped to pick up some goodies for me and Noah.

Then I glanced down and saw this adorable card:


It read,
"Just wanted to tell you how happy you make me
and how crazy I am about you."

Melt my happy heart.

And he did all of this just because.


I thought it was so precious how he thought of Noah on "National Donut Day"
and brought him home some donut holes and chocolate milk.
That's what I'm talking about.. celebrate the donuts!

Here are Noah's donut holes that I was lusting over. Oh my.


But I am proud of myself because I didn't eat one. Not one little donut hole.
I did lick my fingers after I put them on his tray.
Oops, did I say that out loud?

But guess who did eat every single donut hole?


Noah loved, loved, loved his donuts.
He stuffed every one of them in his mouth.
And of course he downed his chocolate milk
in a matter of seconds.

Here is my wonderful breakfast.
Really, it was so wonderful!


Of course, the donut holes just weren't enough to fill
our growing boy. It wasn't long before he was
begging for some of my Egg McMuffin.

I tried to give him a bite of it, but no,
he wanted the whole thing.

So, I warmed him up one, and he ate half of it!
What a little oinker.


Thank you Josh for your sweet, thoughtful gifts.
We love you so much.

Way to go Josh! I think he needs to give some lessons to my husband. I am a sucker for the random sweetness.

Super sweet! I lick my fingers too after giving the kids their donuts- virtually no points, lol. Keep it up Josh, youve made your wife one happy girl!

Erica Nye said...

Taking pointers from the other "JB".

Oh, Libby, how very sweet! The daisy is just beautiful, and Josh was so thoughtful. I tell you--donuts are one big temptation, aren't they? It's pretty difficult on Sundays--having them sitting on the table at church screaming, "Eat me!" I always consider it a personal victory if I can get away from church without giving in. Heehee

Awww...what a nice hubby! You totally deserve all that random sweetness!

Stephanie said...

Melanie Lyons said...
