Um, anyone else wondering how it’s the start of yet another week ALREADY?! You may have noticed from both of my Instagram and Twitter confessions that I had a totally productive completely unproductive weekend. Christian was out of town so naturally this meant I stayed in my pjs, ate toast for dinner, and watched Nicholas Sparks movies… something I’m not proud of but will tell you it was one slippery slope. You watch one Nicholas Sparks movie, you just gotta keep going. And I’m not saying these movies are good, either. I’m just saying it happened, ok? It happened and by the end of the sap marathon, when I’d decided to watch Nights in Rodanthe and then bawled my freaking eyes out for 10 straight minutes, nothing and I mean nothing could save me. I don’t know when I became this person but I’m just going to blame it on this blog and all of blogland in general. You know, because I totally did the NS marathon #fortheblog, anyway. (LIES.)
Has Starbucks ever spelled your name wrong on a cup?
X: Never, because I tell them my name is, ‘X’… and if they can’t spell that, we’ve got a problem.
Who would play your wife in a movie or TV show about your lives?
X: Jennifer Lawrence.
X: Because you look just like her!
What is your proudest accomplishment?
X: Taking the time to get my life together after my divorce… I took three years and didn’t date at all in that entire time. I took actual focused time… I took pause to learn who I was and to make myself better so I could be ready for someone like you once I met you. And it was like, as soon as I did that, I met you. And my life and my heart were ready for you.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
X: Christmas because I can whistle Christmas songs and it’s not annoying. Whereas when I do it throughout the rest of the year, you get annoyed.
Em: That I do, sir. You are correct about that.
X: Plus everyone’s happy and I love all of the parties… when all of the kids are around during Christmastime it feels really magical… it makes you feel like a kid.
What is your favorite breed of dog?
X: I like Great Pyrenees… because they give really good hugs. They’re just really big and good watch dogs and really sweet. (Note: My parents have a GP, named Hank, and both Hank and Christian are equally obsessed with each other.)
Em: I thought for sure you were going to say Oooj is your favorite kind of dog.
X: He is but if I were to choose our next dog, it would be a GP.
Em: What would the dog’s name be?
X: Peanut Butter. Or Oatmeal.
So is it any wonder as to what I’m grateful for today?? I mean, c’mon. He’s like the funniest and coolest person I know AND I’m married to him. Score, man.
