Smells Like a Suck-Up

The hubster has been at his new job for a little over 3 weeks now. I, being his very proud wife, really want him to "get in" good with the people he works with so he can learn from them.


Here's the card I decided to play. I made cookies for him to take into work. These are the (very yummy) chocolate/Reese's peanut butter chip cookies I made from scratch.


Yah, that's right. I'm not ashamed to say it. I made cookies to help my hubster suck-up to his co-workers. (Maybe I ought to admit to caring about how they view me too. I do have to meet these people at a Christmas party this December.)


Mike would have taken the cookies in, no matter what my reason for baking. He just loves these cookies and likes to share things with others. He's a good guy like that. I'm just the insecure housewife longing to make a good impression.


Perhaps I should make cookies for all of my blog-readers to hold their interest too. ;) If I didn't have a toddler to chase, my insecurities may actually take this idea to heart. Oh well. Too bad for you. ( tee hee )



I'm curious. What are things you have done as a SAHM/housewife to make a good impression on others? I know I'm not the only "Martha" in the world.

  1. Amy...your story made me remember this... I thought you'd appreciate this one..When I was a young bride and Bob was teaching, I made him ice tea to drink..didn't make him breakfast, didn't make him lunch...but a thermos of ice tea..yeah sure...The very feminist teachers he worked with were appalled that I would do this for him! They thought it beneath me to make tea?
    That's when I started calling Bob "my Hero" for allowing me to stay home, raise kids,and make tea for him!

  2. My Madi turned 16 months on the 27th of last month!! The only problem is we may be rivals, I'm from Ohio! Go Bucks! J.K. I'm not big into sports. And your initials are AC? My maiden is ALC and married is ALW.

  3. Well, I have gone through many transformations regarding my attitude toward "huswifery" in my 14 years of marriage. And at this point, I am done trying to impress others...most of the time.

    If someone has a toddler, I do try to make sure all the spiders are swept up out of the corners, and I do like the beds to be made. But I want people to feel comfortable in my house.

    See, I live in the deep South, and so many people around here are so all about appearances, it is nauseating. I can't get involved with all that because it is not who I am, and it's not what is important.

    Of course it has taken me years to learn this!

    Oh, and please don't think I'm trying to say your making cookies was trying to impress the people at your husband's job--that's just being sweet!
