What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: My Handman

Sorry (not sorry) folks but this might get a little sappy. I can’t help myself.  You have been warned.

Since moving into our new house, the Mr hasn’t sat down.  He has been fixing, updating, correcting, and changing.  I am beyond impressed with how much work he can do in such a short about of time; he is so talented!  From what I hear, when you become a parent the transition in roles causes spouses to fall in love with each other all over again because you see a different side of your spouse.   I feel the same could be said about our recent transition.  Please understand  that I am in no way comparing the miracle of life with the material of homeownership.  Instead what I am saying is that with our transition we have both added new hats to wear and the new hat that the Mr is wearing has made me fall head over heels for him, all over again!  I simply can’t stop staring at my hubby work around our home.  My heart swells when I hear of each task he has completed and what he has planned to do next.  The way he cares about providing a warm and comfortable home for our family is heavenly. We do not have “honey do lists” in our house, but we do have “Team Hawley” lists.  Yes this is how we refer to each other (so corny, right?) and we enjoy tackling tasks together.  Having a handyman is a great resource, but having MY handyman is simply blissful.  Today I just want to brag about all the things my special, handsome, live-in handyman has been up to around casa de Hawley.

He has fixed the canopy on the back porch, installed our surround sound, updated lighting fixtures, cleaned and fixed the shed (as I type he is prepping to paint), installed outside lighting, fixed the doors inside, updated the outside of the house, purchased new furniture and delivered it himself, built rails for our new bed, filled holes in the backyard that the dogs insist on digging, installed a new mirror on my vanity, and a million other things that I can’t even remember.  He has been busy, right?DSC_0851-2DSC_0831-2DSC_0051-2DSC_0079-2

This is how Tomlin and Roo help out Team Hawley (total bums!)DSC_0846-2DSC_0847-2
He really is my what I’m lovin’, and not just on Wednesdays :-)  Mr, I hope you know how much I adore you; I am completely smitten!  If you have your own husband handyman, make sure you tell them how much you appreciate him today.
Happy Wednesday friends!

I'm jealous!! My dad was SUPER handy, and I expected every guy was the same way. BOY was I wrong. My Hubs is the opposite of handy! In a good way though, I have learned many things, and have more tools that he does now! I'm amazed at what I know. Way to go Mr. H! Great job! Everything looks great! Can't wait to see more pictures

Yall are so sweet! I like sappy. When do you want to meet up again? I saw you were looking for girl time. ME TOO!

I totally think owning a home is similar to having children. It's constant work! Your hubs is very talented and we should be thankful that our men know how to do stuff around the house.

Go PHIL!!! And yes, we love our handymen! =) So loving how the pups would rather sleep than help out. (I'm kinda wishing I could do that with them!) And I get exactly what you are talking about. It's the little things that matter so much to us... especially the way they take care of those things to make us feel warm and appreciated!

How much fun! I hate to sound like a 'typical girl', But I love it when men do manly things around the house. Now, if I could just get hubs a free second so I can put a hammer in his hand....

When I made my list of "what I wanted in a husband" when I was in middle scholl being handy was #4... right between being a member of NSYNC and having a high score on Mario Brothers...


you lucky girl you


disclaimer: Being a member of NSYNC and having a high score on marion brother were MUCH further down on the list ACTUALLY

This is so sweet. How wonderful to fall more in love with your husband year after year. You are one lucky girl!

I love your bed so much! I wish Nick was a little more handy, but it's just not his thing. Maybe when we move into a real house he will become that way!
