when your husband tweets

by Edie Wadsworth on February 6, 2010

remember this sweater and vintage skirt

that I hacked up to make a dress for blissdom?

well, i didn’t finish it.

i basted it together and threw it in my suitcase

hoping to shop and find a real dress

before i got here.

i’ve been having way too much fun with all my

new/old  blog friends to shop

so i wore it anyway—

–and tweeted this picture right before we left

for the harry connick jr concert


and i ended the tweet with ‘don’t pull on it’

because this dress was literally hanging

by a thread.


to my pleasant surprise my twitter-savvy-hunk

of-a-husband, who

is currently attending a very serious church meeting

in atlanta,  tweeted me back with this:



i am still chuckling

and greatly anticipating my arrival back home.

post-edit:  my great friend patty at blessed moon, who I begged to come to blissdom with me,  is having a “i’m not at blissdom blog-hop”  where you can introduce yourself and link up, so go and introduce yourself  and link up!  see you soon with lots of blissdom pics.  i wish you all were here.

Aren’t those the best little surprises and gifts in life when our men get the chance to tease us a little? They sure do know how to make us want to hurry up and get home, don’t they? Hope you’re having a blast!

L*O*V*E* that you shared this story!!!

too cute. i’ve been a follower for just a short while & just love reading your posts. one of my “real life friends” (pearls and grace) met you yesterday @ blissdom she called to give me the scoop. i gasped when she told me she met you, and then i asked “if you were wearing turquoise?” i had major blog celebrity envy going on.

your outfit is just darling!

have fun today.

Love your blog, I just stumbled upon it a few weeks ago and I’m hooked! Love the tweets! I’ve been blessed to be married to the same hunky guy for almost 29 years; and yes, he still flirts shamelessly with me–and I love it!


26 Amy Kinser February 7, 2010 at 3:03 am

How funny. Sounds like something my husband would do.

BTW…you look lovely in that dress, even if it was about to fall apart.

Have fun. Amy
