My Amazing Husband

Okay, since it's the weekend, I thought this might be a good time to do this tag. All about my husband. I was tagged by my friend Annette (who I've known since the 3rd grade). I know this is my writing blog. And I know that I have promised my extended family/friends who really don't care to read how crazy I am (because they already know), that I would start a family blog. I haven't done this yet, so I will post this tag here. I'm supposed to do 5 things in 6 areas. But, because that is 30 things and Jared would kill me (he's super private/shy), I will write 6 things about my wonderful husband.

*He is 6'8", which brings to mind two thoughts. One, every new person he meets (I was guilty as well) asks him how tall he is and if he plays basketball. And a few people ask him how the view or weather is up there. Yeah, it gets old. (BTW, yes, he played ball in college and the weather and view up there is lot better than the weather/view anywhere else, because he has it all to himself) Two, when he first met me, he told me he was 6'9" (his height w/b-ball shoes on)--I'm so sure. If I knew he was only 6'8", I don't know that I would have married him.

*He's a stock broker and likes to read super boring finance books. Like seriously enjoys reading them. Bleck. I fall asleep just reading their titles. But his all time favorite book (going back to his teenage years) is: Time of the Twins by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (When we first got married it was one of my requirements to read this book and I [should I admit this] actually enjoyed it).

*He draws really well, but won't admit it.

*He's super funny, but the funny thing is that his sense of humor is so dry that, true story, one of my friends after a year of knowing me (a year!) finally looked at me and said, your husband is hilarious. I was like, uh, yeah, I know. And she said, Yeah, it took me until now to realize that.

*He is the best husband ever and has fully supported me this last year when I turned into a recluse and started writing like crazy.

*He is the best dad ever as voted by our four children, and me. And if anyone saw my post about my daughter announcing that she loves her daddy more than her mommy, then you understand this statement is so true.

Oh, and if you feel like bragging about how amazing your husband is then consider yourself tagged.


  1. Wow, I think you've hit the jackpot! :)

  2. He sounds perfect for you, Kasie. I'm so embarrassed to be one of those people who asked how tall he is! (Blurt is my middle name.) And isn't it great to have a husband who lets you write? Of course, I think my husband looks at it as an investment toward making some serious money in the future. Little does he know ...

  3. LOL! Holy cow, I KNEW IT! I knew he was 6'8! wahooo! I saw him on your facebook photos and I was like, hmm, he looks like he's 6'8! heheheeh! FINALLY someone taller than my brother I call, "Shorty" Now Jared will just have to get used to the name! LOL! I can't wait to meet you guys!

  4. And you forgot to say how great looking he is!! Or did you??? lol You DID hit the jackpot!! So how tall are you???

  5. He sounds like a great guy! I love that you mention how great of a dad he is. I think I might do a hubby post on my new blog sometime. You are welcome to visit (

    It's nice to get to know more about you. :)

  6. Angie, total jackpot. Like the million dollar one.

    Linda, didn't you notice that I was one of those people? It's the first thing I asked him when we met, so no worries. Yes, I love that he supports me in my writing.

    Jenni, how did you know? LOL Yes, you will be looking up to him when we come. LOL

    Terri, I thought that was a given that he was handsome. Hence the picture. I didn't think I needed to point out the obvious. LOL

    Lady Glam, yeah, I'll drop by your blog for sure. And he is a great guy. LOL

  7. BOOOORING! Let's move on to something more interesting like which is the better movie, Rocky III or Back to the Future.

  8. Oh, BTW, Terri, I'm 5'8" (but I told him I was 5'9" when we were dating ha ha).

  9. 6'8" and he STILL felt the need to lie about his height?

    What is it with guys...

    Still, sounds like a cutie, which is very fitting considering he's married to you!

  10. Everyone on the planet, aka, my husband, we all know that between those two movies, Back to the Future wins hands down. So that would be a very uneventful debate.

    Kiersten, I know, right? Seriously. (to both points) LOL

  11. Aw, he sounds like a cool guy. He and my husband can start a boring business book club. lol.

    Also, I know how he feels about the basketball question. Being tall myself, I got that one a lot too. Although I've gotten more repetitive questions from being a twin. So, that kind of thing has been the story of my life. :)

  12. Ahhhh......super sweet. He really is an amazing person isn't he?! Takes after his sister Emily. If every guy was like him, the world would be a better place. Seriously! Love that guy! (and you for your sweet words on my blog!) Thanks! :)

  13. You already know I think Jared is awesome! And if anyone wants to see a glimpse of his hilariousness, they can jump over to my site where Jared and Neal(my husband) so helpfully provided the material for my latest blog post.

  14. I just want to take the time to agree... Jared is awesome! I love it when my friends have the husband they deserve!

  16. Does anyone know where I can find free online grant applications?

  17. Thank you for taking the time to publish this information very useful! visit here

  18. You need to be more confident about dating and not help to get to know each other better. By the way, lately I have been using online resources to make new acquaintances. By the way, in this case I want to mention this source where you can learn a lot more about one convenient dating site. It's very cool.

  19. Using dating sources is reasonable, so thank a lot for this advice. I will try to use it soon.

  20. Thanks for the good story. This is very motivating to look for a new partner more actively. I'm not the biggest loser in this but my wife left me three years ago. Now I want to try to find a new spouse using together2night. I see that I am not the only one going down a similar path and this inspires me with optimism.

  21. These letters are a great idea, hm, I think I will try them too, cause some days ago I met a wonderful woman on and I want to do something romantic for her. Wish me luck!
