Friday Link Up

Hey there! Today I’m linking up with Miss Kimmyyyyyy!!  But first I have to tell you about our bizarre 15 minutes before bed last night.  It was about 9:30, I was just shutting off the TV and picking up a few things when we heard a car peeling out and driving like crazy down the streets of our small town.  Think lots of tires squealing and lots of acceleration.  We could tell they were on the ‘main’ street our dead end intersects with.  All of a sudden we hear what sounds like a crash!  I’m worried it’s some bad guy who was trying to get out of town fast but Andy thinks he needs to be nosey so he goes outside in the dark IN A BRIGHT WHITE T-SHIRT (yea, they won’t see that glowing in the street lights!!).  In the house I can hear people talking, so I man-up and bravely go outside in the dark with Andy.  We decide he’s going to get in his truck and drive down to see what’s going on. *side note, not once did I consider someone might actually be hurt and we should be good citizens and go check on them.  I obviously have no heart.*  5 minutes later Andy gets back and says there is a truck that is all jacked up half-way in the ditch just around our corner.  And the one and only cop in town is there.  So no one was hurt, it was just some idiot going on a joy ride, trying to impress someone. So that was 10 minutes worth of the 15 minutes.  The next 5 involve Andy going in to check on Brennan and finding a disgusting tick stuck to his sweet little head.  We had to turn on Brennie’s light, rip that little booger out and apply some Peroxide to the sore left on my little guy’s head .  Luckily the kid was so asleep he just sat there mostly out of it and didn’t know what we were panicking about.  I hate ticks.  Ick. 

Ok, now onto Kimmy’s link up!!

Describe your relationship with your spouse

  • Oh wow, not sure how to describe our relationship.  We are sort of stuck in the 16yr old phase where we are goofy and weird and act bizarre with each other.  We have been together for 16 yrs so we are very comfortable with each other, no secrets, nothing hidden (ahem, bathroom duties) from each other. There is a ton of laughter in our relationship.  We still hold hands.  We like being together so when we go shopping we rarely go separate directions.  There is so much love between us.  We like to razz each other. I do believe we are perfect for each other and I know we have a great marriage.

List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could

  1. Spend more time with your friends and not as much with Andy
  2. Stop being such a fun-hater, go have some fun, get into a little trouble – it’s ok!
  3. Try out for Dance Team!
  4. Stop doubting yourself so much
  5. Don’t worry what other’s think
  6. Stop being such a bitchy Color Guard captain
  7. Don’t be so hard on your mom
  8. Cut your hair!!

  1. Well that's a pretty eventful night for small town livin' =) I hate tics too, my boys get them occasionally because we have woods behind our back yard, those stinkers never want to come out and it's horrible when they are stubborn watching your babies cry! Jerks! ... I have never taken baths for that reason, as soon as I was old enough to take a shower on my own I never took another bath. It really is kinda gross when you think about it... lol Have fun at your party this weekend =)

  2. Holy frick! You broke your tooth off!!!! I bite the skin around my nails all the time! You may have cured me!!! I love shabby chic. Our guest bedroom upstairs is shabby chic in progress. And OBVI I love the blue, orange, and gray!!!! Haha!!!

  3. I love your marriage. It is the sweetest!!
    I also love that you called a "crick" and "crick." I had to explain what that was to some city-folk once. :)
