Conversations w/ my Husband: Speaking Mermaid.

June 28, 2016

X:  “Can you wake me up tomorrow?” Em:  “Yeah, what time?” X:  “Finskie.” Em:  “What?” X:  “Fin.” Em:  “I’m sorry, I don’t speak mermaid.” X:  “What are you talking about?” Em:  “Fin?” X:  “You’ve never heard of a fin?” Em:  “Yeah. On a mermaid.”     **Update 6/30 – Apparently I wasn’t the only one who had NO IDEA what “fin” meant – thank you! Looking forward to sharing that bit of info with Christian, which proves he’s the only…

May 20, 2016

  Late one evening…  X: “You’re drinking that?!” Em: “I’m drinking out of the same drink from dinner. It’s water.” X: “Oh. I thought it was pure vodka!” Em: “Sod off, man! It’s water!” X: “Sod off?” Em: (laughing) “Yeah.” X: “Who did you learn that from?” Em: “Hugh Grant.”   Happy weekending 😉 [ For more CWMH, click here. ]…

Conversations w/ my Husband: When Analogies Go Wrong.

January 20, 2016

While driving in the car through a rainstorm…  X: “Having new wiper blades is like knowing Jesus.” Em: “How is that?” X: “Because with every wipe it’s new.” Em: “You wouldn’t be able to use that last quote on its own.” X: “You know, with every wipe away, the window is clear. Or like, with every wipe, He makes you clean… and, you know, with every pass… it’s -” Em: “We’re done here.”   [For more CWMH, click here.]…

Conversations w/ my Family (Thanksgiving edition)

December 1, 2015
ghetto with dad

You all know I’m a sucker for a good (read: funny) conversation, as many have been frequently documented here with my husband. I mentioned yesterday that my Thanksgiving this year was packed full of HILARIOUS conversations, some of which I wrote down to be shared in this space.

While watching Gilmore Girls one evening (the episode where Rachel leaves Luke), X walked into the room and observed for a few minutes before saying… X: “Wow, that guy’s a jerk.” Em: “What?! No he’s not!” X: “Oh, ok.” Em: “We like HIM, we don’t like HER.” X: “WE?? I’m not even watching this.” Em: “Well then don’t you dare come in here talkin’ crap about Luke when YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW.”   [For more CWMH, click here.] Have an…

Southern Ways: Vol. 4

September 9, 2015

While I may not be saying y’all (*yet), I have begun to pick up the slightest southern accent (certain words) along with “southern talking ways.” It really is crazy how it just HAPPENS but it has. We’ve been in Nashville now for a little over 8 months and it’s happening. The biggest thing I’ve noticed is that I shorten everything. Example: “Babe, you wanna get in the car and go drivin’? As long as we’re lookin’ both ways, I doubt we’ll…
