We gave Russ an ego boost.

I love being a wife and I love doing things for my hubby. I'm always keeping my eyes out for something fun to do to surprise him. The other day I came across a website {read: someone had it linked on their blog} of a company that tries to "encourage marriage relationships, communicate a positive image of marriage and honor the sanctity of the marriage covenant." After perusing their site for a while, I thought that their t-shirts would be a great thing to surprise Russ with. There were two problems I had with this: {1} I didn't want to pay that much for a single t-shirt and {2} I didn't want to wait for it to ship. So, of course, I decided to make one for myself. And then I decided to make one for Chloe Jo. I think they are so cute! Cheesy? Definitely. But cute nonetheless.
So Chloe Jo and I put them on while Russ was at work and when he came home we surprised him with them.

I think his ego grew and he walked around a little straighter the rest of the day. Mission accomplished.

Hello! I recently started following you guys so I wanted to stop by and say hi. Those shirts are adorable! My husband and I recently moved from the Midwest (Ohio) to South Carolina as well. Hope you all have adjusted well to Southern living! :)
