Scents

I have to laugh at the way The Mister walks through the door each night and says, "Something smells really good!" And without fail I respond with, "That would be me!" But he never gets it! He just lifts the lid on the simmering saucepan to see what's cooking! So, I've been thinking, why do I wear perfume every day (Calvin Klein's Eternity) even when I'm just staying home? Maybe he'd notice if I dabbed a little Alfredo sauce behind my ears? LOL!

  4. Oh Julie...that is so true. And that reminds me that when we were in high school, I baked him a plate of heart shaped cookies for Valentines Day and the card was a Peanut's card with Lucy saying that exact quote...the way to a man's heart is through his stomach! HAHA. See...it's true 30years later. Oh dear! LOL!

    The perfume just for you..yes, that's what I've decided...just for me. :)

  8. Woow..Alfredo. Now, that just might get his attention. Perhaps some salsa or, better yet, tobaso? Hee.

  14. I too wear perfume every day! I love my scents!! Ha! And others notice it too! Not my hubby of course...but strangers have stopped me and mentioned that they love the perfume I am wearing. So...guess I do it for them...the everyday person out there! Ha!! If husband does notice...he doesn't say. But he too will comment on the smell of food cooking! Sigh!

  22. That's funny... men don't get it do they. I have a 'friend' whom I think the world of. He went through a rough time last year and moved closer to his children. He told me he still reads my blog and makes nice comments. He wonders who I'm talking to 'him' in some of my post. Duh... Mr. Humble. LOL Oh one of these days, one of these days....

    Cute, cute post, Betsy! Have a Wonderful weekend!!!

  27. Yum...I'd love a bowl of your soup right now!
    Have you ever tried pure vanilla extract as a perfume? I knew a girl that wore it as her perfume every day when we were younger.
    Smells pretty good. I once read that someone took a survey and vanilla was the favorite scent of men : )

  31. Aww, Birdie you're so sweet to ask about Spencer. :) The boys have a snow day today. I almost took some video of him singing. Of course you couldn't make out a single word and it was very monotone, but very cute and entertaining anyway! lol. :)

  37. Keep perservering with the CK Eternity Betsy, one day the Mister will surprise you! I love it too, it's one of my faves & I wore it on the day I stumbled into wedded bliss with MOTH.

  39. Betsy, that is sooo funny! I think it's probably the ultimate compliment though that he loves your cooking, at least that's what our grandma's would say. It's so cold here that warm foods sound good all the time, and that soup looks delish!
