sock it to me

We have a sock eating monster in the house. No, not Gus or Ollie, some other mysterious sock eating monster that we cannot find or rid ourselves of who has stolen nearly all my socks.

I've been whining about it for weeks but have been too lazy to do anything about it, so imagine my surprise when I opened my drawer this morning to get out a mismatched pair and discovered a whole bunch of brand new socks!

Steven is the best (and sneakiest) husband ever.

It's those "small" things that can make a day (or week:). Alas, the cat here cannot fathom my sock-whining sob story. Sporting permanent white thigh-high boots, she simply cannot relate. Must find sneaky man. But I just tossed one out (nicely).

Cheers & a good Sunday up in Michigan.

Aww this is soooo sweet! I love new socks. I had a room mate once who refused to wear matching socks. Not sure why. My bf swears we have a monster who likes to nibble on our socks and leave holes!

UGH! Whats the deal with socks, anyway? Same thing happens to me. And somehow it happens with our Spoons, too. Life is weird.

Your husband is sneaky. And thoughtful. :)

Only your true love can save you from the Sock Monster.

So so sweet! This made me smile and then tell my husband that I seem to be missing shoes. He did not take the bait.

I know! It's ridiculous how thoughtful it was. I married one hell of a good egg. :)
