When Marcus and I first met, though we actually hated each other the first few weeks…(that’s another story for a later date 😉 ), I knew he had potential because he gladly watched A Walk to Remember with me. Literally, my all time favorite movie. He wouldn’t hold my hand, but hey, in time people, in time. This girl knew what she wanted though, we just needed to get past the hate part first 😉
Eventually we fell in love and all that cute stuff, then he asked me to marry him in a parking lot and well, it was PERFECT. You might be thinking what kind of barbaric animals are these people?! But I assure you we’re only the classiest of class 😉 Actually, him asking me to marry him in a parking lot was one of the best things he’s ever done. I knew the proposal was coming and if you know me at all I am a HUGE surprise ruiner, like I WILL figure it out. So we went out on a normal Friday night date to a nice dinner and comedy show, then as we walked back to the car, he opened my door then paused for a minute and said, “Wait, do I have a flat tire?” At this point, I was pretty pissed–it was COLD and I wanted to get in the car, so I was like nope! Let’s go. Then it happened, he got down on one knee and COMPLETELY caught me off guard. So while you may think it’s silly, I think it’s perfect because it surprised me, I didn’t see it coming at all and well, isn’t that was a proposal is all about?!
Well, a few months later we got married and the real journey began. I fell in love with him even more than I thought I could and he continued to show me how amazing he really was!
I mean, you know it’s true love when your husband is okay with you using his razor. I mean really though it goes both ways. You know the saying what’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine? That’s BEYOND true in our relationship. I use his razor, he uses my moisturizer. I steal his Chapstick he steals my hairbrush.
In fact, shh…don’t tell, 😉 but one day I came home from work a few years ago and he was watching Gossip Girl…mainly because Blake Lively is pretty dang cute and I watched it religiously, but I got him hooked and well…he couldn’t help himself! Ha!
Recently though, he’s been the thief of my all time favorite treat. Literally, he is eating one right now and I keep finding the empty box in the freezer (one day we will work on throwing boxes away…I’m guilty too!) Skinny Cow Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches. I mean COME ON, those are MY chocolately “right for you” indulgences. I mean, I guess who can really blame him? They are really good…same goes for my moisturizer and GOSSIP GIRL. In fact, our child is literally named Blake, does that tell you how obnoxious we are? Ha!
Seriously though, side note–if you haven’t tried Skinny Cow’s Chocolately Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches (available in 3 delicious flavors: Vanilla Bean Dream, Ultimate Chocolate and Creamy Caramel) , please do so! They’re freaking delicious, like I keep them in my freezer at all times delicious. And while us women are usually the ones that buy them, we know the men in our lives are eating them too!

Now, tell me I’m not the only lady who’s man in their life steals their stuff and uses it for themselves?! It’s a good thing I don’t mind sharing.. Well, here’s to marriage, great husbands and the saying, “sharing is caring”!
