My wonderful Husband!

I was laying in bed this morning thinking about how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband! I could go on forever listing all the great things I love about him. Yes, there are things he does that annoy me, but mainly he is wonderful! Alot of people can't say that their husbands come home from work, while I have been home all day, cleans up, iron's his clothes, and does whatever needs to be done (without complaining). I don't even have to ask him which makes it even better!

Jared and I are high school sweethearts. We started dating when I was a senior in high school. We then continued to date through college and things got a little rocky! We were together off and on.  We fought ALOT, hurt each other and all those silly things that happen when you're young. Through all of that we both knew that we would get married one day. When I watched the Notebook (I just saw it for the first time a few weeks ago) we laughed because it reminded us of when we would fight and then be just fine in a few hours!   We are still like that today! We don't fight nearly as bad, but when we argue we are laughing in about 5 minutes. It's great because we don't have to hold anything in, we can totally be ourselves around each other and tell each other what we think and we're ok with that!

I have really been working on being a better wife to Jared. I can be a bit controlling (Jared is going to laugh when he reads this and say "A BIT"), but I have really been trying not to be. I have been praying, and asking God to change me.  I guess if you knew my situation growing up you would understand why I want to control him. Jared understands this and even when it annoys him, he knows why I am this way.

Jared loves to duck hunt. I mean REALLY loves it! He talks about it all the time and looks at stuff on the internet about it. I tell him he is obsessed with duck hunting! Ha! Honestly it gets on my nerves during duck season because he has to get up SUPER early and it wakes me up, then I get spooked and cant sleep.Ha! Pretty much me being selfish. He really just likes to be outside doing something if it's working on his boat, working on his jeep, messing with his hunting stuff, or playing golf in the yard. I used to not want him to go anywhere (being controlling), but in the past few weeks I have really tired to just let him do what he wants. He works hard, goes to school, and allows me to stay at home. The least I can do is let him have a life!

He is my best friend and I love him more than words can say! I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him.


  1. What an awesome post! You two are sooo cute! How great that you were HS sweethearts and made it through the college years! Good hubby's are hard to find! I've got one too! That is awesome he helps you around the house! My hubby helps with the laundry and dishes....YAY...because I don't like either one of those LOL....

    Looks like he is teaching Finn at an early age to duck hunt! Love that pic of Finn, His daddy and all of those um not alive ducks LOL....that is just cracking me right up!

    I think all of us girls have that controlling issue....sometimes I can be a bit that way if I don't watch! You are a great mommy and wife! I'm glad we have become bloggy friends
