{March 13, 2011}   Date night with the husband

I had a great night last night. Me and my husband stayed up ALL night just like we were back in high school and watched SIX movies in a row. I’m not going to list them all out but my two favorites of the night were the first one, Marmaduke and the 4th one, Death at a Funeral.

Marmaduke because it was just so darn cute and funny and who can resist a silly, clumsy dog who can talk? Not to mention that unlike in Marley & Me, I didn’t cry my eyes out at the end. I love a happy ending, don’t you??

Death at a Funeral was just beyond hilarious. I haven’t laughed so much while watching a movie in forever. I’m surprised I didn’t fall to the floor, loling. I have a friend that had told me it was funny so I knew it was going to be, but oh my! It was a laugh riot! If you haven’t seen it, it is a must see! There are some inappropriate scenes though so parental guidance if you have kids.

Anyways, it was a fun night that made me feel like I was a teenager again and I was being naughty by staying up all night. Left me feeling a little tired today and I finally succumbed to sleep around noon but only slept for about 4-5 hrs. and woke up. Maybe I will be tired at a decent time tonight, who knows?

It was worth it though. It didn’t cost any money cause it was movies that were DVR’d and it was some good quality time that we haven’t had together in awhile. A nice change from the norm. We have been married for about 1 year and 8 months now so I guess we are still kind of newlyweds. I never quite felt the stereotypical newlywed feel though. I think even before we were married, me and my husband were like the “old” married couple type. We argue and bicker and it might not be the most typical relationship, but what is normal, really? In total we have been together as a couple for over 3 years and we still say “I love you” over 100 times daily EVERY day. The words never get old to me. Even when we fight and he will say “I love you” to try to make it better and I will utter a grumpy “I love you” back, it’s still the truth and from my heart. I love my crazy man. He can be a real baby at times, not clean up after himself A LOT, irritate me until I want to scream, drive me crazy enough sometimes until I want to commit myself but if someone asked me if I regret marrying him? NOPE. No regrets. We are perfect for each other, maybe more than people can even see. The real me is not exactly perfect….I can also be a baby at times and be messy and drive people crazy. We all have our faults. To the people who told me that after I got married, I would learn more than I wanted to know about my husband, be grossed out and possibly wish I got myself out of the mess…After all, living with someone teaches you a lot you didn’t know and it may be hard to deal with. You’re right BUT you’re also wrong. I learned more about my husband but none of it has really shocked or surprised me all that much. I haven’t ducked my tail between my legs and ran yet. (Forget the fact that I don’t literally have a tail….)

~sighs~ I still love him as much as I did when I first fell in love with him, if not more.

Oh and I had a special text when I awoke from my nap. It said I was the best “dission” he had made in his life. Dission meaning Decision…..I think the text was cuter because of the misspelling. I am a stickler for typos, my hubby makes them ten fold but hey, opposites attract.

{February 12, 2011}   Road trip!

Don’t you just love road trips? There’s just something about getting out on the wide, open road and exploring new places. Me and my husband went on a day trip to a different city about 2 hrs. from our home today. It was part shopping trip, part relaxing drive for me(at least somewhat) and a fun way for me and my hubby to spend time together.

There were some interesting moments, though. Like arguing over directions….Thanks to having a printer that is out of ink, I wrote out all of the directions with ALL intended stops in order by hand. It took me 4 pages….THEN I realized you could send the directions to your phone. Oh well…I took the written directions anyways!  Nevertheless, there was some arguments when it came to needing him to read the directions for me and he wasn’t doing it adequately enough for me. So therefore, you have a crazy woman trying to read directions and drive. Sorry to all the drivers who almost met their doom due to this. Luckily, there were no accidents.

I brought my digital camera along but sadly, all the pictures I got were taken from my phone and none of them really fits my photo challenge theme. I saw a few things I wanted to take pictures of but I was driving and it was hard enough to try to read directions and drive…..I don’t think I could have pulled off the taking pictures too. I wanted to pull over and take a picture of a sign that said “Magic Carpets”. The hubby didn’t want to, though….How could you not be intrigued by the idea of Magic Carpets?! Seriously?

And my well thought out itinerary got messed up a little…we decided to forgo one of the places we wanted to look at and the place we were going to eat supper due to being tired. BUT my directions were to get back from one of those places so of course, we had to stop and ask how to get back home. Sadly, there were no red ruby slippers given to us and the advice to click our heels 3 times and utter those 5 words…”Please take me back home”….I mean “There’s no place like home”.  I sent my hubby into a convenience store for directions while I stayed in the car, staring at an imported palm tree plant and the emergency stop button for gas. Is it ok to admit that I was wondering what would happen if I pushed it?….Well….my husband came out not with ruby slippers, but an antenna head deal that had a UT helmet on it instead. It was cute, I only wanted directions, but I guess I will take a bonus too. He, of course, placed the little UT head onto the car antenna and we were off and on our way. About 5 minutes later, I hear this bang on my roof. I jump up, “What was that?!” and my husband tells me that he thinks the head committed suicide. Well, he didn’t exactly say that, he said he thought we just lost our new decoration but I can take creative license, right? So I am thinking, well, THAT was a complete and utter waste of money and then THUNK on top of the roof again!…..So now I am wondering what the heck is going on? And then THUNK THUNK THUNK every 5 seconds… now I am realizing that no, the head is still on there, it’s just attacking my car! After a short pull over on the side of the road, the head was removed from my antenna, my car was no longer under attack and now we have a head rolling around in my backseat somewhere.

Maybe it will work on my mom’s car….

Well, we had a good time on our road trip anyways and now we are both tired. Me, more so, because I did all the driving but I love to drive….That’s another story all in itself …..but that’s for another day!
