Princess for the Day

{ho ho ho}

It started with this chocolate Santa. The Husband came home from the épicerie with it for me. So very sweet, but oh how I'd love him so much more if he was made of cheese instead (the chocolate Santa, not The Husband). And that brings up an important question; 
why are there no cheese Santas?

So The Husband came home with this chocolate Santa, which is like the sweetest thing ever, almost as sweet as when he came home with those Nutella stuffed doughnuts (Which he did again this week! I'm beginning to think The Husband likes his women a little on the pudgy side).  

And then he announced that he would be waiting on me for the day. I'm not sure why, or what for, he certainly wasn't in any sort of trouble (that I'm aware of) but if your husband tells you that you aren't going to have to lift a finger all day you kinda roll with it, no?

I became an island unto myself on the couch with my magazines while The Husband busied himself with the art of waiting on his lady (me). He started to make a fire, do this dishes, and make hot chocolate all at the same time. It was like the Tasmanian devil was whirling around my house. The path of destruction that was left in his wake was a thing of beauty

So what if the house smells like burned milk, Fifty has dish soap on his head (don't ask) and I had to find  'how to build a fire' instructions on ehow? 

I felt like a princess all day.

  1. Yes, my dear, princess life can be tough sometimes. But bless your prince's heart. Second on the cheese Santa, cheese Easter bunny, and maybe I would dig Valentine's day a little more if there were more cheese hearts! Enjoy!

  4. Lovely post. France do such wonderful choccy delights unlike Spain! I guess the usual warm temperatures here don't make it a good idea.
    Anyway, sounds like you had a wonderful time being a princess. Hope you were lounging, reading your magazines with your tiara firmly in place ;-)

  6. Must be the holidays is stoking all those good deeds from your good husband. My sweet wife would think she had died and gone to heaven. I will have to consider doing something so nice. By the way, she would be convinced I was trying to make up for something I had done wrong.

  17. That's cool. The only time I ever got to do nothing was when I was on total bed rest during maternity leave on pain of premature birth.

    I loved it! It's totally different though when it's a spontaneous loving gesture. Your husband is a treasure.

  29. I'm trying to stay away from all things cheese and chocolate, having gained some (cough, cough) weight living here. Yes, my skinny jeans still fit (when I jump off the cupboard into them). It's just a shame my stomach hangs over them. But, ah, yes it's nice to feel like Princess for a day – even if you have to clean up after a hurricane.
