Girls Write Out
Tuesday, July 18, 2006

Diann and I have the best husbands. Take a peek at this picture. Leave the men alone for a day and see what happens! We all went to the Cleveland Women of Faith conference last weekend. Di and I were signing our books. Our guys were left on their own, which is usually no problem. They go sightseeing and generally keep out of trouble.

When the conference was over on Saturday evening, we took the shuttle back to the hotel. We didn't see the men in the lobby at first. They were standing by the window watching for us. They both turned and we saw these T-shirts with our pictures plastered on the fronts. Then they turned around and showed us the back pictures of our book covers! They came toward us and held out a Starbuck's iced americano and a bag of Godiva truffles!

They wore those T-shirts proudly all evening, in spite of the stares and the chuckles from people who saw them. No, they're not for sale, ladies. When you find a keeper like that, you hang on until your fingers drop off! At least Dave is wearing a picture of me that doesn't show my thighs. Thank goodness for small favors. LOL

Oh my goodness, that is GREAT!!! I think I have to interject that these men at conferences are completely priceless. They love their wives, to the point of schlepping stuff around for them, walking us in the middle of the evening to get coffee, you name it. You go girls, you did good!

Priceless is right! They are the stuff good heroes are made of!

Okay these two are my heroes for the day. What fantastic husbands! Even better that it was accompanied by two of the basic food groups, chocolate and caffeine. :)

They were too cute turning around wearing those t-shirts, chocolate in one hand, Starbucks cup in the other. Wow. We felt like total princesses. :-)

I have to insert here that it IS a bit humbling to see one's face plastered across someone's chest. My wrinkles were the size of Texas, but it's the thought that counts, right?

ROFLOL!! The first thing I did was make my husband go online to see the photo. Then I reminded him that I had met these guys on your RV tour and they were very nice men. I reminded him that you two are also my friends, and now that your hubbys had set the paradigm, what was he going to do? Hmmmm?

ROFLOL - poor guy. You could see the wheels turning ... I'll let y'all know if he finds a way to top that, but somehow I rather doubt it. ;)

Oh, my, what adoring husbands.

Something I adore.

Something I'm now experiencing!

I blogged about it this morning.

Awwwww...they are so sweet! I know the two of you are very proud, and rightfully so!

That is the sweetest thing ever! My husband and I were debating whether or not to go to ICRS this year, and I kept thinking how bored he'd be taking care of Abby alone all day. I think someone needs to come up with a Spouse Center, where all the husbands and wives (and kids) of us (we?) writers can get together and kabbitz while we do our thing.

That t-shirt thing really is adorable. What a winner you've got. :)
