My Husband Has a Way with Words

(walking through the endless aisles of Halloween and Christmas decorations at Hobby Lobby)

MR. TBS
Am I gay?  Why do I like this store so much?



You guys.  I was dying.  Dying!  Our favorite season is autumn, and we love the holidays.  Who doesn't?  When stores are ripe with decorations, we fall victim to their pleas to be bought.  There is no telling how long we may be there.  Proof: During our trip to New Orleans in May, we stumbled into a shop called Santa's Quaters in the French Quarters and walked with out a few hundred dollars poorer but with amazing finds.  Let me repeat that this trip was in May.

For the record, we believe that homosexuality and masculinity are not mutually exclusive, just as femininity and athleticism are not.  However, I think Hobby Lobby was igniting his creative and feminine energies (which we all have) at the time.  :-)

This will go down in the book of "Questions My Husband Asked Me."  That handsome man has a way with words!  (Oddly, neither of us ever asked the words "Will you marry me?")

hehe... Your Husband deserves a High Five for making me giggle, out loud, at my computer screen.

Thx Linds & Mr. TBS, you just made my night a little brighter :)

OH Mr. TBS... too funny!
Seriously Hobby Lobby has some serious power!

RadiantKristen said...

That is awesome! Glad that Mr. TBS is getting in touch with his creative side!

hahahaha I can't even get my honey to come into Hobby Lobby half the time he just waits in the car.

LOL! I love it! He's much better behaved than my husband at HOBLOB. He walks through all of the aisles and picks out the tackiest things and goes "Oh em gee... this is so GORGEOUS! And it's on sale!" It is so embarrassing. He is not allowed to go with me anymore.

HAHAHHAHAHAHA!!
So funny!
My problem with Hobby Lobby is the crafty version of "eyes too big for the stomach"- I think I'm FAR more creative when I'm in the store than I actually am when I get home!

(Oh- I don't care about the holidays. So I'm the exception to the rule, I suppose.)

There is a shop called "The Christmas Shop" in London and it is open all year round, it's really surreal going in in July and browsing Christmas decorations and listening to "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer." My housemate is Christmas mad, she visited the Harrods Christmas shop last weekend. Loving Mr TBS's comment!

Ha! Too funny! Love this post. I've never been to Hobby Lobby, but really want to go one day, so I can see how it differs from Michaels or AC Moore.

That is so funny! I can totally identify... my boyfriend loves Hobby Lobby. He goes off to whatever section (I'm not really sure) and finds me 20 minutes later while I'm still at the front of the store. We usually are there for a while! So, you can let your husband know that he's not alone :)

Alisa Marie said...

haha - cracked me up!! Great story! Sometimes I wish my husband was a little bit more feminine so he would to go stores like that with me...

Devon @ TheMermaidChronicles said...

Is Hobby Lobby better than Michael's? It sounds like it. I bet you got some goodies. Now you've got me more excited for fall! I can't wait to see what your decoration finds look like at home. Also, gotta love Mr.TBS's honesty and sense of humor.

Michelle said...

Hahaha!! I LOVE it! I wish my husband appreciated the Hob Lob as much as yours does ;)
