One big difference between men and women

I am very excited - S and I are getting ready to take our first trip away from the baby.  Nana is going to watch her for the weekend, and we have another couple going with us up to the mountains to rent a cabin.

Today, I was texting with Kim about the trip - and she mentioned some of the food items she is going to bring:  coffee, filters, all the ingredients to make sausage quiche for our first morning there, other breakfast goodies for the other two mornings we are there. We agreed that we would, most likely, go out for the rest of our meals. She's also bringing her cookbook, so we have options if we choose to cook any of our other meals.

Then, I got home, and saw this on the kitchen counter.

When I asked my sweet husband why he had purchased them, he said "They are snacks for this weekend."

That was the full extent of his purchases.


For a three day weekend.

And that, my friends, is the difference between men and women.

(Alright, to be fair, S also made reservations for us to go out to eat on Sunday night, and has also mentioned that he just figured we would go out for all of our meals.  I am 1000% sure we won't starve!)

Do you have a story like this?  What makes you REALLY notice the difference between men and women?  


  1. This is AWESOME. S is the guy's guy. We do operate on a different frequency. "Different but Equal". Different doesn't mean "BAD". We are VERY useful in the small cabin in the woods to deal with stray spiders and bugs, as well as an occasional chainsaw maniac .... I got my own personal stories, most of which can not be published here.

    1. I am intrigued...but I won't push! Feel free to share - if you dare! :)

  2. All that I think he is missing is beef jerky and flavored carbonated water, that is all

    1. FYI - he found beef jerky in his pocket from the LAST time we went. :)
