Happy Valentines Day Hubby

Remember when?

9-10 Homecoming

Yep....that's me and my hubby! We are one of those couples who have known each other since diapers. You know the kind of married folks that makes you want to puke:) We actually didn't like each other here; or at least I don't think we did. Can you tell by the amount of space between us? lol!!!!!!!!

So if you don't want to hear about our boring love story then you better move on, because it's going to get mushy:) NOT!!!!

Here's how it all began.........Do you like me? Check yes or no. I checked yes and we lived happily ever after. That was in elementary school and HE broke up with me in the 5th grade! And set me up in the 7th-8th grade with some of his friends. Thanks dear! We were like good friends and when my Mom suggested that he might like me like a boyfriend....I said "EEEEWWW Mom, he's my friend"! That was about in the 9th grade. Of course she was right, and the rest is history. Of course, after the romantic proposal, which I'll describe as follows........he comes over to the house in the a.m. on Sat. and I'm still in the bed and he comes in my room and said "get up, we are going to get a ring today". I say "what ring"!

Honey, sweetie pie, you still owe me a proper proposal!

The week of the wedding, I'm on my way home from work and hit head on with a van! I was going very slow as Iwas in a sharp curve and it was a torential rain, so thankfully nothing bad, except I had a cut across my eye and some bruising, ...wish I would have known about the magic concealer back then.....and a totaled car. BTW that's been 17 1/2 years ago!! The week after the wedding, hubby is coming home from work, fell asleep at the wheel, and turned our BORROWED car upside down in a creek! He comes out with a broken nose!! We got off to marriage with a BANG!!

And the honeymoon.....let's just say.....hubby had never seen the ocean I thought I was a widow the first week of marriage, after he sailed off into the sunset WITHOUT ME on an itty bitty sailboat! I told you it wasn't mushy?

I could tell more...but I'll save for a later what I'm really wanting to tell about....he would kill me if I did. I'll give you a hint....let's say hubby was in a bit of a predicament and I came to the rescue:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's when he knew that I really loved him!!!

Four years later we had our 1st son, and four years after that, here came son #2! I don't know what we did before we had them......except look and act like fools......see above picture! That is our wedding day pic:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I love the boys sooooo much! I love living in the house with you guys.....there is never a dull moment with all the nice smells, loud noises, dirty house, piles of clothes, never ending meals, etc. I wouldn't have it any other way!!!

Anyway, on this Valentine's Day I want to wish my hubby the best and tell him how much I Love Him! I thank God for are a good Christian man who is a great Dad to our boys! They love and adore you too! Thanks for being my friend, all the laughs, and putting up with me when I'm not so lovable! Your my man!

Will you be my Valentine? Check yes or no..........



P.S. Have you barfed yet?

You two are about as mushy as me and Kyle! And I'm like you, I wouldn't have it any other way! One of my favorite things to do (B4 Kids) was to sit on buckets in the chicken house and talk while we waited for the feed to run. We did that every single morning at 4 am for 8 years. I can't leave to go with him that early now, but I still get up and talk to him in the bathroom while he's getting ready every morning. It works for us! See, romantic, huh?
