Thirty Day Challenge: Day One - My Relationship Status

Good Tuesday Morning!  I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Memorial Day!

I've seen this floating around the blogosphere, and because I've been so out of it lately, thought I might give it a try.  Maybe it will help the creative writing juices in my head start flowing again, so here it goes:

The Thirty Day Blogging Challenge: Day One

Your current relationship status

Well, anyone who has read this knows I'm married.  I'm very happily married to a perfectly imperfect man whom I call Barb Wire Man.  We got married in November of 2006, so we are coming up on our 6 year anniversary.
He went from being the epitome of college bachelor to wonderful husband and step-daddy overnight.

He is a rough and tough man.
My Daddy loves him, and that really is all that matters, right?
He does whatever he must to make something happen.
He wears Harley Davidson T-shirts, blue jeans, and boots every single day.
He enjoys drinking a few cold beers with his buddies, sometimes a little too much.
He makes driving a semi-truck look hot.

He has an awesome go-tee, which would be 3 inches longer had I not accidentally lit it on fire once.
He shoots straight, and his word is the gospel truth...unless he is trying to tease you.  He has successfully convinced me of many things that are not true.
He will never place anything in this world above me, Flower, or Little Man.

If he enjoys something, he becomes passionate about it.  He is an all or nothing type of man.
He has the most awesome smile, which he passed on to Little Man.  They can both melt me with their smiles.

He is very intelligent.
He has figured out that he will never figure me out, and for that, I am grateful.
He loves the weird things about me, or at least pretends not to notice.
He lets me speak my mind, and knows I'm incredibly independent.
He teaches my children how to appreciate the good things in life, like, AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Metallica, and anything else that is considered "hair band". (As I write this, they are in there listening to "Never Let You Go", by Steelheart, while he explains to Flower that it is indeed a man singing.)
He also knows when it is time for me to shut up, and I know what "that look" means.
He works hard for our family to provide the life we have.
He knows how to have a good time.
He makes me proud to be his wife.
He flips the camera off almost every time I try to take a picture of him, simply because he knows it make me mad.

He loves me like the dickens.
He is going to chew my butt out for putting these pictures of him on here when he gets home from work.  He might even call me from work and chew me out.
There's an awful lot about him that drives me nuts, too.  Mostly, all the things I listed above!  But, I love him.  I love him dearly, and as long as I grow old with him, everything will be OK.
He is my best friend.


  1. you look so pretty in your wedding picture!!!!! this was sooo cute! the accidently catching his hair on fire? lol. wow girl.

    hope you're feeling sooooo much better!!!
    love ya

  2. Thank you! I looked...young!
    Yeah, we had this fireplace lighter that would only actually light every 5-10 tries. WE were joking around one day, and I grabbed the lighter and told him to stop or I'd light his beard on fire (knowing the lighter probably wouldn't work). Well, he knew it never lit, so he kept on and didn't move. Go figure...it lit the very first time I clicked it, and POOF. There went his beard. Our living room stunk so bad and he had to shave it off!

  3. Awww, so sweet! It's great when your husband is also your best friend. Makes things funner & easier! He sounds like a great man & hope to meet the whole family some day :)

  4. Awwww I love this post! Love the pictures too! Expect for the finger one...lol. My husband acts silly in pictures too just to make me mad (to put it nicely lol.) Beautiful family momma!



I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each one...as well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
