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.
