Conversations With The Hubs

A glimpse into our everyday life…

Romantic Word Games

Me: Ok you have to summarize me in three words. They can be nouns, verbs, adjectives, short phrases, whatever. I’ll do the same for you and we’ll go back and forth. Okay Go.

Hubs: Ok. …….’Eats like bird.’

Me: What? …Tchh …’Farts.’

Hubs: ‘tchhh’

Me: What is that?

Hubs: That’s the noise you make when you’re annoyed.

Me: So that is one of my top three characterizations? *Kicks hubs*

Hubs: Toenails of death

Me: I thought we were going to say cute and romantic things about each other.

Hubs: Like what?

Me: Like how about “LOVING?!”

Long Silence.

Blonde Moment

Hubs: My barber said today that I’ll probably never go bald.

Me: Why not?

Hubs: Because I have really thick hair.

Me: What does that have to do with not going bald?

Hubs: I don’t know. My dad has the same hair as me and he didn’t go bald.

Me: Good point. Good point.

Hubs: And his dad didn’t go bald either.

Me: Yea, but your dad doesn’t have the same hair as your dad’s dad, so type of hair might not have anything to do with it.

Hubs: Well then I guess my dad inherited his thick hair from my grandmother.

Me: Which grandmother?

Hubs: I’m going to pretend you didn’t just ask me that.

Diaper Conversations

Me: Thanks for changing the baby’s diaper hun. Did you have any trouble with it?

Hubs: No, I did the daddy fold.

Me: Oh, so you pad folded it instead of neat folding it? Yea, I’m really sorry that flat diapers aren’t the most “daddy proof” diaper, but I really like them because they’re the cheapest. …Oh, but I don’t mean that they’re cheap in quality. I mean, we made a good investment when we got these. Even though flat diapers are like the simplest looking diaper and the least expensive, they’re actually one of the longest lasting, best quality type of diaper. They’re really absorbent too. So you can see why I bought mostly flat diapers when we went with cloth diapers. Even though they take a little bit more work to put on, they’re… *15 minute monologue*

Hubs: I know honey. I read your blog.

Allow Me to Introduce Myself

This is my blog.

This is me:

This is my wonderful husband:

This is our sweet baby boy:

…And this is what happens when we try to take a family photo:


Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in a small rural town, in a small rural county the northern-most inhabitants of the small rural state called “lower slower”. When I finished high school, I moved to the north to go to college, where I met my husband in a Bible study, and we fell madly in love. We had the perfect, fairy tale romance. Two years later, we were married. We had the most perfect, fairy tale wedding. Four months later, we discovered our baby boy was on the way! Another (unexpected) dream come true! Then my husband went active duty in the military, and we were relocated. I left my fabulous job and our small rural life to become a stay-at-home mom and to follow my husband, happily wherever after, around the globe (well, so far to two other states). Since becoming a wife and mother, I have begun to learn a multitude of lessons about life, love, marriage, and parenting. It’s not always easy, but there’s always something to learn, and through it all, I have found that I am not in control, but my Father in heaven is. The most valuable lesson I have learned so far is that, while the fairy tale romance is beautiful and thrilling, what gets you to marriage is not what keeps you married. As my husband and I grow and learn together in our marriage, we are discovering the riches and treasures and joys that the early fairy tale romance does not even begin to touch.   

Join me in the journey of every-day life after the fairy tale; our happily ever after, wherever it may lead. 

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” -Ephesians 3:17-19 (NLT)
