letterhead

dear future husband,

supposedly this is the phase of my life where i am preparing to meet you. i'm working hard....real hard...because i know you'll be worth it. i can only hope you are working just as hard. here are a few tips for you when we finally meet.

1. be manly...but not too manly. you are allowed to like high school musical and sing along, but i am supposed to rest my head on your shoulder. not the other way around.
2. please like to cook. don't worry, i will do my fair share of cooking, but it would be a very nice gesture of love for you to cook for me...and do the dishes...everyonce in a while.
3. don't get mad at me when my room is dirty. please.
4. i hope you are ready for a rip-roarin time with my brothers. they can be very competitive. don't let this intimidate you. they really are very kind boys and will love you because i love you.
5. please think about your shoe choice. i know it shouldn't be, but it is important to me. if i suggest a new brand of shoe for you, don't take offense, but entertain the idea of trying them on. you might end up liking them.
6. don't try to kiss me on the first date. this is the recipe for disaster, and death. if you have questions or concerns, talk to cindy and she will fill you in. bad things happen to those who can not wait.
7. you are allowed to offer compliments, as long as they are sincere...and not every 5 seconds. read my cues. sometimes i get uncomfortable if i'm told i'm beautiful every 3 seconds. what am i supposed to say back...that you're beautiful too?? hmmmm.
8. be patient with me. i'm not a good dater, and you will have to look past alot of my insecurities and flaws to see the real deal. she's in there, and it's not a waste of time to find her.
9. offer to drive. we can take my car, that's fine. but you can drive. and you can still open my passenger door for me. and yes, i'll reach over and open your door from the inside. that's how i do.
10. get ready to laugh. at me. with me. at yourself. i hear it's a great way to burn calories....and can save awkward, frustrating or stressful situations.
11. i like to buy you things. if i'm at a store and i see a shirt you would like? i'll buy it for you. this is one of the perks of me having a ritzy job. don't be afraid to return the favor.
12. i like mail. little notes on the car, things left in my wallet where you know i'll find them later, secret signals that only i know the meaning of. can't wait to wink at you from across the room and have you be the only one that knows what it means.
13. i am a sucker for tradition. i.e. traditional dating. i know i can be all talk sometimes. gently and tactfully bring me back down to earth. i will thank you later.
14. hurry. hurry up and get here.

love,
bethany

Jenny Wells said...

THANK YOU for this! i loved it. kinda wish i would have done this. its nice you know who you really are so that you're both not finding things out along the way. i especially love #7. i am soooo the same. and fez does tell me all the time, which is sweet, but i have started to tell him he's pretty too. its kinda weird...

deidre said...

well. I just want you to know that I LOVED reading this an I love you even more! You are so great.

Whitney said...

15. She doesn't even have a foot disorder.

Bethany said...

linds and de. you are too nice.
jenny. thank you for telling fez he's pretty. that made me laugh :)
whit. no disorder like my feet don't have to be touching you at all times or like quausi? i think i'm safe either way...

Brianna Soloski said...

Love this. But it made my cry, too, because I will never get to experience that. My attempts at finding love have been a futile waste of time.

Tiff said...

He'll be there when the times right - and trust me...he'll be AWESOME. He'll be attracted by your awesomeness. (true word, might not be the correct spelling.) :)

Meggera said...

Can't wait to meet him!

Chance said...

16. Must love ranch...

Katie said...

I'm with Chance. Even though I think I've only met him once, and he probably doesn't even remember. But still, must love ranch.

Maybe our husbands are friends...and searching for us...so sad and lonely without us...

I meant the touching thing. No quasi. I used to call it foot disease, but it sounds like something you need to see the doctor for, you know?
