Another reason my husband is a HOT TAMALE

Have you ever heard the old joke where the punch line says something like, a man is really sexy when he's in the kitchen,
with a broom!

Well, yes, I do think that's sexy!  How about you?  I hate to sweep...or mop for that matter.  I don't often find my husband in the kitchen with a broom though.  He is a very neat person.  Sometimes, it makes me nuts!  We don't have any rugs that have the fringe on the end.  He'd be straightening the fringe and taking his scissors to it to make sure they were all even.  My mom says she feels sorry for him! 

Well, I told you he stayed home from work on Monday.  When I came back from grocery shopping, I didn't know where he was.  The kids were hanging out in the living room and it took me about 3 or 4 times of asking where daddy was to get an answer.  "He's in my room with the chalk."  my oldest finally tells me.

As I go around the corner in the hallway, I spot a few big trash bags full of trash.  Then I walk into the my oldest's bedroom to find this:
(insert angels singing here)

I should have gotten a close up of how neat and clean the chalk tray is!






It all began in the closet here, which was a complete disaster area.  And he got on a roll and finished the whole room.  The bedroom part really was not bad, but he made it fabulous.  I did dig a few things out of the trash, like some Build a Bear clothes, but I am trying not to think about what else was in the bottom of those bags that the trash man took away!

Of course, I have no before photos for comparison, but, trust me, the singing angels are in order!


Isn't he cute? 
He's good at Wii bowling too.

Does your guy clean?

Wow. He did a fabulous job. I tell ya we are lucky women (in some sort) because my hubbs cleans as well, everything must be neat and tidy. Its fabulous because he gets the job done, not so great, when he wants me to help. LOL

What a gorgeous room!

My dh doesn't clean very often. I love him if he takes over bath duty with the boys, though.

Carrie said...

send him my way :) Actually my hubby likes things to be clean and organized so our 2 young kids drive him nuts. Dump Day is his FAVORITE day ever!!

I laughed out loud that if the rugs had fringe he'd cut them to size. hahahaha Now, that IS funny!!

What a great hubby you have. :)

That is so cool! I love the pic by the Wii bowling - we play that one too!

My husband and I both are really neat, but if one of us doesn't like to do something, the other one does it which works out well!
