You left off "Don't bother cooking, I'm taking you out to dinner." *grin*
Linda Kage said…
Aww!! Number one is perfect. Instead of "YOU painted that?" I love to hear, "YOU wrote that?"!!
Em-Musing said…
Si, si senoras!

I like "what do you think" the best cause it means someone actually cares about my opinion.
I love firefighters because they're smokin'.
Laura Eno said…
Both Lindas have good suggestions too!
Have a great weekend. :)
Jennifer Shirk said…
HA! I love "Are you losing weight?" LOL
This is a great list and "love" hearing any of this from another.

Carol Kilgore said…
Linda G - Good one!

Linda K - I'd love to hear that one, too :)

Em-Musing - Muy bueno!

Delores - Exactly.

Laura - I know! If I get enough other suggestions, I'll have a ready made Part Deux :)

Jennifer - I wish I heard that more often. Sigh.

Teresa - Same here.
"That's a great idea" is music to my ears! Julie
LR said…
Oh yes we all love to hear these. :)

Still not entering contest as will buy book. ;) Hope you have a nice weekend with loads of compliments from somebody.
Emily R. King said…
I only like "I love you" when he doesn't want anything in return. LOL!
Johanna Garth said…
I love all of of those AND "I couldn't focus on work today because I was thinking about you." ;)
LD Masterson said…
Showing my age here but I'll add: "Nana, can I come over and stay with you?"
Carol Kilgore said…
Julie - Mine, too!

LR - I appreciate that :)

Emily - LOL! I think we've all been there.

Johanna - Ooh, a real romantic!

LD - Aww...sweet :)
CarrieBoo said…
I like to hear 'do you want fries with that'. LOL.

I like firemen... because I used to want to be one! Well not a man - a firewoah-man - but I did want to slide down the pole and play cards with them in between running about saving lives and all that.
Danielle B. said…
My #1 would be... "I wouldn't know what to do with out."

I've already done Mon & Wed but one more...

I love firefighters because Alcide from True Blood looks good as one. Yummy!
Colette Martin said…
I second Linda's motion to be taken out to dinner!
Christine Rains said…
Great list! I would also love to hear: Ice cream is fat-free and absolutely good for you!
Carol Kilgore said…
CarrieBoo - Quite a few women firefighters out there :)

Danielle - Another good one!

Colette - Cool :)

Christine - Oh yeah!
Ha! That's a fun list.
Summer Ross said…
Totally agree with number 1!
Carol Kilgore said…
Yvonne - Thanks!

Golden Eagle - Simple list :)

Summer - It's nice, right :)
Clarissa Draper said…
*sigh* yes. Here are some I like to hear: Let me wash the dishes for you. Let me make (or bring) you a cup of coffee. Let's eat out!
Michael Pierce said…
And you're right! Or at least my wife loves to hear that a lot. Great list for me to remember and keep myself out of trouble. :)
Arlee Bird said…
I've said some of those to my wife. Although if I say "This is delicious!" it's usually about something I've cooked or we've gotten in a restaurant. My wife doesn't cook.

Tossing It Out
Talli Roland said…
Aw! Yes indeed. You nailed that one!
Carol Kilgore said…
Clarissa - Good ones!

Michael - Just for you :)

Arlee - So 'delicious' is one YOU like to hear :)

Talli - I try :)
Andrew Leon said…
Thanks for the support post for the Star Wars thing. It's much appreciated!
Yep, I love to hear all of those things. LOL. Hope your weekend is great!
Carol Kilgore said…
Andrew - My pleasure. Hope you won!

RaShelle - We're like that :)
Old Kitty said…
Awwww I love you too lovely Carole!!!

I love firefighters because in my fantasy they rescue Charlie who gets stuck up a chimney so they all have to take their shirts off.

Take care
Carol Kilgore said…
Old Kitty - Charlie is probably glad that's only a fantasy :)
Misha Gericke said…
I love this list. Both sweet and true. :-)
Carol Kilgore said…
Misha - And easy :)
Conda Douglas said…
Great list again, I'd just add my favorite from my forever boyfriend, "Best girlfriend ever." I never get tired of hearing that somehow.
Carol Kilgore said…
Conda - Those are wonderful words to hear, too :)
