Married Life Chats Volume VIII

By  |  19 Comments

mondays always feel better when there is a holiday in the week to come! yay halloween! we are enjoying our last day in panama city beach, florida with my in-laws. the amount of calories i have consumed have been insane (i totally had a cookie with breakfast). it’s been such a fun time so we are soaking up the rest of the day with them!

Married Life Chats

because we call like to laugh, here are some recent married life chats for your enjoyment with the last one being my favorite!

out of nowhere
him: i want to make-out out in front of our kids
me: what?!
him: yeah, i do. i want them to always see us being really in love!
me: okay…but no boob grabs.

me: so, we were talking…
him: wait, you and our dog?
me: yes, so anyway…we decided…
him: *uncontrollable laughter

calling me to say goodnight while he was traveling
him: someone hit on me at the bar
me: ohh, was she pretty?
him: well HE wasn’t too bad.
me: hahahaha

him: yay! i can’t wait to see you in florida! i’m going to nuzzle you and kiss your neck like that lemur did!
me: ahhhh nooooo! honestly that really messed up me up. you can nuzzle my hand instead.
him: gee, how romantic.

everyone is coughing on the beach and we asked a few people what was going on
me: wait, what did that couple say is going on?
him: they said it is the ‘red tide.’
me: ew, what’s that? so she can’t go in the water because of her period but what does that have to do with everyone on the beach coughing…
him: omg, NO. strangers wouldn’t just tell you that.
me: okay, so what is it?
him: i think i heard them say it’s when some type of bacteria is in the ocean and then a toxin is released in the air and makes us all cough
me: both sound equally terrible.

him: is it true you can’t get pregnant in the shower?
me: your texas education is an abomination.

him: i am going to make us all salmon for dinner!
me: yay! that means i can eat twice as much for lunch since i won’t be eating that.

last night as we were falling asleep
him: i can’t fall asleep
me: why not?
him: because every time i close my eyes, i see you with minnie mouse mask on.

chelsea halloween child throwback chelsea halloween throw back dinosaur

how awesome was that dino sweater i rocked?! i can still remember the very pungent rubber smell that costume emitted. you know you are from colorado when all of your halloween costumes had to fit over a sweater or coat because it was freezing out! i also look like the little brother from ‘a christmas story‘ (we have visited that house!)

let’s hear some funny conversations that have been happening between you and your boo-thang! happy monday and sweet dreams of my minnie mouse face mask!

    That Minnie Mouse mask is terrifying… So, so scary! Your conversations are always so entertaining. I was totally on board with you for the “red tide” thing. I mean, sharks are a serious hazard soooo….

    I love hearing your conversations!

    My favourite one though is talking to your dog. Isn’t it abnormal to not talk to your dog? So really he’s the weird one..

    lol we were in Las Vegas about a month ago and we were at the casino. He is big into playing blackjack and other table games while I stick to the penny slots, which he made fun of me for….

    *Sitting at the penny slot machine and it starts to ding*
    Me: See! it’s dinging! And that makes me feel like I’m doing something right!

    Another one was on one of our first few dates. We were in a really nice Greek restaurant in San Jose.
    Him: You’re blushing.
    Me: Actually my blush has a time release on it and you just activated it.

      oh snap! quick wit jessica on that time-release blush! that is such a good one!!! i think you are not alone in believing the ‘dinging’ makes you feel like you’re doing something right!

    I’d love to have a dino sweater like that right now! My husband and I worry that our daughter is going to get confused about how normal people talk to each other…because of the way we both carry on conversations with the dog. Maybe we can work on that before she’s born!

    Haha I love these. My parents do make out in front of us and it’s slightly disturbing but in a sweet way, I guess… I wish I remembered some of our chats- they are pretty ridiculous.

      haha love that you have a first hand account of these parental make out scenes! i feel as though that exactly sentence is what i hope for from our future children. i keep our conversations in the ‘notes’ section on my phone (but i have to get better about actually writing them in and not saying ‘oh that was too funny, i’ll never forget that.’ i usually do)

    These are honestly some of my favorite blog posts of yours to read! The last one cracked me up.

    I keep a notebook on my phone of all the ridiculous things Pai says. Most recently:

    me: Will you still tell me I’m beautiful when I’m 45 & Wrinkly?
    him: no, I’ll just say hi
