Husband tag.

I was tagged by the lovely Betsy to participate in this fun Husband Tag.
oh, this just gives me one more reason to brag about Coach.
There does not seem to be any rules about this tag….which is great. Betsy tagged 4 peeps, so I will do the same.
If you are not tagged, but would love to do this also, please do and let me know!

I am going to tag:

My real life friend Dawn. I know a bit about her husband….but I know she would love to share some more with us!

Jenn at Juggling life , she has hinted at how fab her other half is…I think she would enjoy doing this also.

I am going to tag Smiley girl @ live happy. She is such a silly, sweet girl. But lately she has been down in the dumps….I think this may cheer her up a bit. Plus, her hubby is just as silly as she is.

And Karen GBerger, she must share about her Gregg. They have a great love, these two. They have endured probably the most difficult of challenges in their life together…they are inspirational.

If you are not married,and you HATE men, don’t send hate mail.
If you are married and still don’t like men, don’t send hate mail.
If you are a gay woman, and you don’t like men, don’t send hate mail.
If you are a very attractive gay man , you can write about your husband.

1)Husbands Name: Coach.

2)How long have you been married? May will be 18 years. (I had to get the calculator out to remember)

3)How long did you date? 6 years. And STILL I was a child bride.

4)How old is he? 43

Dating rituals in the 80’s were very primitive.

5)Who eats more sweets? Probably me. I have the sweet tooth and pms.

6)Who is the better singer? Oh, that would be me. Although neither of us really sings well. But I claim to be better. this is my blog.

7)Who is smarter? Ummmppphhh. Wow. Well, since the kids don’t even bother asking for my help with any math or science anymore, I would say he is smarter. He is very book smart. It is extremely annoying.

8)Who does the laundry? ME. I don’t really want anyone else near MY appliances.

9)Who pays the bills? His check goes right into the bank. I pay all the bills. He will ask on occasion: “how much money do we have in the bank?” I have never told him about the offshore accounts though. Those are just for me.

10)Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Me. Sometimes Cocoa too.


11)Who mows the lawn? Carlos.

12)Who cooks dinner? Me. When we both worked, he did a large portion of dinner. But now, it is just me. But he can cook if he had too. (Like, if I emptied the bank acct and ran away to Vegas.)

He is very good at catching dinner…no pole required.

13)Who drives? When we are together- HIM. He claims to get carsick if I drive…this has been ongoing forever. Kind of a family joke now.

14)Who is the first to say they are wrong? Neither. We are very stubborn. And plus, I am never wrong.

15)Who kissed who first? Um, as far as I know, you have to kiss at the same time. Right?

16)Who asked who out first? Neither. It was a blind date.

17)Who wears the pants? Coach always wears pants. It is frowned upon to go pant- less. I usually wear capri’s or shorts. (We have a very good 50/50 jive going on here)

have you ever loved someone so much that you just wanted to eat their face?

me too.

Happy Birthday My Love

What a cute little booger


Happy Birthday to the best Boyfriend ever.

You are a wonderful Husband, father and friend.

My most favoritest Coach in the world.
And I don’t play “favorites”

Basically, you just ROCK!!!

(He’s the BOMBAY)

My husband is a man of very few needs….but he gives SO much.

Basically he can live and be content with the following:

Me. (who couldn’t live without me?)

His oh, so precious and comical girls.
They bring daily humor and love to his life.

The Cocoa-nator. She worships him in every way.

The feeling seems mutual.

The Miami Dolphins.

No fair-weathered fan here…he has stuck by them for 43 years.

Even in their crappiest seasons….

Coaching softball. His passion. I won’t ever “get it” but I accept it. 🙂

Good food. In particular some “meat”.

His famous quote is: I did not build this body on veggies alone.”

(something like that)

Crystal Lite Raspberry iced tea.

He has the kids and most of our friends hooked on it too.

We should buy stock in it.

Carvel Ice cream cake….I try to get one each birthday.

The carvel franchises are fading fast though…

Good music. And varied.

From Stevie Ray Vaughn, Charlie Daniels, Beastie Boys and Metalica…all over the place.

And I can’t forget about the “crackBerry”

I know it is integral in his work and softball life…sometimes it drives me nuts.

The good thing is, when he is home, the crack berry stays in the mudroom. It only comes out when we leave the house…

Notice I put me first. That was on purpose.
