At first when I started thinking about this, I thought of a slew of things that I think are great about my marriage. But then I realized what my absolute favorite part really is.
It's the mornings.
Let me explain...
Hubs & I generally get up with 20 minutes of each other. From the minute he walks into the bathroom, where I am either taking a shower, brushing my teeth, fixing my hair, doing my makeup or just generally prancing around, the hilarious conversations/questions/actions begin.
Here are some things that I find absolutely HILARIOUS pretty much every single morning.
1. The fat dance (as hubs calls it)
On a pretty normal basis, hubs will walk into the bathroom, turn to the side & jump around. He will then stare in the mirror and decide how much of him jiggles so he can give himself a few words about how he "really needs to get back in shape"
My reaction: To stare at him through this whole ridiculous display & then laugh at him more when we discuss what we've been eating recently.
2. The incessant round of questions (sometimes in funny accents)
From hubs to me: Do you think my hair looks okay? Does this shirt match with these pants? Do you know where my wallet is? What about my belt? How the heck did I get a hole in my shirt? I'm smart, right? Is the iron on?
My reaction: Most of the time, i'm laughing through all these questions. And then after a certain point, I start making fun of him for it. I talk in a baby voice and ask all the same questions back only to make the whole situation more ridiculous.
3. The times we try to get the other one to do stuff for us or just plain try to beat the other one out
Hubs will ask me to get the coffee, I will ask him to get the coffee. We'll try to pin who gets to take the dog out on one another (whoever leaves last has to do it, so of course we both try to get out earlier than the other. usually I win.) I'll ask if he can plug the iron in, just so I can iron my clothes first. He'll try to get to the shower first (according to him it takes him less time to get ready) and until one of us finally makes it out the door, these shenanigans continue.
4. The terrible jokes
We are a seriously corny couple. We make ridiculous jokes & also tell each other dumb jokes on the daily. The good thing is, we happily laugh at our own stupidity & at each others. I think if anyone were to actually hear the things we say, they'd be worried about our sanity.
5. The singing
Ohhhh, the singing. And I don't mean he's singing soft ballads. Homeboy will be in the shower and/or walking around the bathroom & bedroom singing everything from country to rock. loudly. Also? It's not that he's just heard this song that morning or the night before, he just wakes up to these tunes in his head and enjoys sharing them with me.
At the end of every morning though - when I'm done getting ready & about to head out of the door, I give hubs a kiss, tell him I'll see him in the evening - he'll tell me I look pretty and we go on our ways. And while I'm in the car on my way to work, I think back to the happiness that fills me every morning when I get to wake up & spend time with hubs. And I decide every day that I am blessed & grateful for what I have.
This guy, he makes me real happy.
What is your favorite moment of the day?!
