Hey Girl, My Valentine to Suffering Husband

Good Time Charlie

Hey Girl, My Valentine to Suffering Husband

I rerun this post every year, so sorry if you have seen it in past Valentine’s Day.  This post still makes my heart swoon as I love my Suffering Husband more every year.  

Mark Karen SF Giants 2015

This year (2017) is especially sweet because we will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary May 1st.  To all you sweeties out there, Happy Valentines Day!  

24th anniversary

Mark is one of the funniest, if not the funniest person I know.  He is always up for a good laugh, be it dressed as Elf at our church Christmas Party:

Or with Hillary and Donald 

He leaves me the sweetest notes. EVERY SINGLE morning.

He’s a definite keeper.  Now onto the original post:

Have you seen the adorably hilarious link party going on at Bliss Ranch? It is a link party for all of us blogger girls to post about what our significant others really want to say.

UPDATE!!!  Bliss has share some of the “Honeys” of the many “Hey Girl” posts that were linked, and guess what Suffering Husband made the cut!!!  You must click HERE to see the rest.  Priceless.

Suffering husband, AKA ” Mark” is the love of my life.  He is supportive in every way of my blog, and faithfully reads each and every post.  Here is what he would love to say (if I were the one making the words come out of his mouth).




Linking up my Hey Girl at BLISS RANCH.  Click on link below, you will not be disappointed!

  7. Lori

    Hysterical! You’re great!

  8. Kelly @ Eclectically Vintage

    If only! But if our hubs spoke like that, I think we’d run screaming!

    Love the mani/pedi, Downton Abbey and of course never meeting your blog friends!!!!!

  9. Kelly @ View Along the Way

    OMG. I laughed out loud at the mani-pedi one, and I definitely make my husband listen to me talk about my blog friends! Poor guy! 🙂 Thanks so much for linking these up!

  10. Cheryl

    You’re too funny!! Wish I had a hunk to do these about! I should use my 14 month old grandson, he’s a real cutie!!

  11. Suffering Husband

    GTC is as funny, talented and beautiful as she appears, she has a very big heart. You blogartists
    mean a lot to her. Keep on reading! As for me, I know more about pigments, viscosity, color schemes and dumpster diving than I ever would have thought though my enduring love ends at the spa door.

    • Gillian

      We think she’s tops. Good on you for letting her put words in your mouth. You’re pretty awesome too.

  12. Jeannie

    very cute and you look and sound like a great couple. enjoy.

  21. julie bugs

    NO MANicures around here, but Daniel is an even bigger Downton fan than me! We started season two last night. Such a soap opera- but a well written beautiful one for sure.

  22. michelle@decorandthedog

    So, I thought the outfit post was good…but the blogger friends got me. Too funny. Thanks for joining the meme madness!

  23. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co.

    I love it! You two are adorable together! … And so true, my hubby hears about my blogging friends all the time!

  24. Taylor @DearOlympia.com

    These had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. I send the link to my hubby – I know he can relate!

  25. Sheila

    Ha, I love ’em. The thrift store one is my favorite. That is so my husband and something he would definitely say either to make me happy or in honesty to make me laugh. I torture the poor guy with a day of thrift store shopping but I am so blessed that he puts up with me.

  26. Sandi Reagan

    I think you could expand your ventures by taking this show on the road. LOL I see you up on this huge stage teaching everyone how to climb in and out of dumpsters without waking the sleeping man inside, and actually redoing furniture in between your wonderful sense of humor! LOL What cha think?
    Need an agent? Your a delight and seriously love your blog!

  27. Patty Soriano

    Omigosh! Look at that wedding picture! You look just like Marg Helgenberger! you guys are the funnest couple! I LOVE that LSH plays along. I’m heading over to Bliss’s to see the others. I subscribe to her blog, but this must have been a private blogger post for y’all. Happy 25th this year! You’re rocking it!

  28. SH

    Love you baby!

  29. Bliss

    So I popped over bright and early this morning with free time on my hands, just to see what you’ve been up too. I scrolled and checked out some projects and trashy piles, but when it came time to leave a comment I figured this would have to be the post to leave it on. Happy anniversary, and your hey girls are still funny!

    • GTC

      So……. I am just now getting around to looking at my comments! Thank you for the Happy Anniversary wishes from May. What a slacker I am! I have to figure out how to get my comments emailed to me again so I don’t forget and let months go by…….Hope your summer is going well!
