Frequent Discussion in Our House


Husband comes home from work....

Comes out of the bathroom after changing and says~

"What are those old things on the ground in the bathroom?"

Me: "They are {baby} urns...they are VERY hard to find"

Husband: "Why did you buy those?"

Me:" I have been looking for them for a lonnnnnggg time."

Husband: "Just like you have been lookingggg a long time for that plate with the nest on it that I passed coming upstairs."

Husband: "You didn't need all that."

Me: " I couldn't pass it up~"

This is a normal conversation in our house. I did find the most {perfect} store yesterday with the cutest things ever plus the most amazing fresh flowers. The moment I walked through their doors..my heart started beating faster....
I also stopped at J Jills and bought a cute Springy "comfortable" outfit(it has the cutest big brown button in the front)...I needed something to wear when I decorate my {baby} urns!

My mom and I have a joke when trying on shoes... especially shoes that are totally impractical.

Mom: But where are you going to where those shoes?

Paula: EVERYWHERE!!!!

Then we start laughing super hard because its something I started saying probably oh, 25 years ago.

Our poor, dear husbands~ Will they ever understand our "need" for these things? I can't wait to see what you do with your urns. :-)

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Our husbands should meet - wait I take that back. it would just add fuel to his fire.

Sounds like a conversion in our house too!

We are made to make our homes beautiful (to nest) so husbands just weren't wired like we were. I bet he has something though that he has that makes his heart beat a bit faster. My husband's is hot rods/street rods.
