Why haven't we thought of this before?

Okay ladies, so recently my husband surprised me with flowers because he thought I was having a bad day. So then I got to thinking that flowers are a really nice thing to have on your table. It just makes me happy walking by and stopping to smell fresh flowers. So I made a deal with my husband that he has to keep fresh flowers on my table if I work on cleaning the house more. Not a bad deal for either of us. I get fresh flowers and he gets a clean house for around $5-$10 a week. So why doesn't ever woman go out right now and make that deal with their husbands. Tell me how it goes.

  • Men are hard to buy for so why can't us women make it a little more challenging for them to buy for us on those special occasions? Ha ha.

  • eh, I wouldn't want flowers like that...I'd make a deal with him, if he's quit being such a narcissistic ass hole then I'd clean the house more!

  • While I think it's a great deal, and I do love fresh flowers, I kind of realized years ago that they are just going to die anyway, so I don't want them. I love that on a special occasion he'll get me flowers, but I do not want them every week, it just seems like such a waste to me. But, if that is what you and hubby have agreed on, that's great! I'm glad that hubby did that for you =)

  • I like fresh flowers sometimes too. Simple is better so they don't have to be expensive. We have gotten them for a party or dinner because they do look nice on the table for $5 or $10. I don't have a husband but I may treat myself one of these days!
