The Winter Hubbies 2013

Somehow the Hubbies always make us feel a little frisky.
It has been a long, hard winter, hasn't it.  (And it's been even longer since our last Hubbie Awards post!)

But spring seems finally to have sprung (if we keep our fingers crossed), so it's time to look back and hand out a few budding bouquets to the best this particular critic has seen and heard over the past few months.

So without further ado -
