10 Things You Might Not Know About My Husband


  1. He makes THE BEST chocolate chip pancakes for the kids every Saturday morning.
  2. He loves In N Out Burger. Whenever he travels to SoCal or Vegas for work, he always has the cabdriver take him through the In N Out drive-in on the way in from the airport. As you can see, he also collects their t-shirts!
  3. He tiled Robert Redford's swimming pool.
  4. He got a perm on his mission. (Sadly, I do not have a scanner for photo evidence. Just trust me, Peruvian perms will never take the hairdressing world by storm.)
  5. He won the market research industry's "Rising Star" award last year in Scottsdale.
  6. He had a girlfriend named Cinnamon. Really. (And somewhere she is typing her blog and saying..."Yeah and he was really cute, but he married this girl named Gabi..." Touche, Spice Girl!)
  7. He is the best date for the movies because he loves movie snacks and buys huge bags of popcorn, Milk Duds and Raisinettes.
  8. He knows EVERYTHING about cars. Cars are his passion. He reads "Car&Driver" magazine cover to cover and can tell you the make, model and special features of any car on the road. And yet...
  9. He has driven the same SUV for 9 years because, although cars are his obsession, his other passions are...saving money, avoiding unnecessary expenses and keeping out of debt! We are polar opposites, of course.
  10. He made salmon and steamed clams for dinner tonight and canceled all church obligations so he could take care of the kids for me while I napped all afternoon due to extreme post-Primary program exhaustion. (It was great, by the way...) Thanks, hun!!! You are the best...

It's great to get to know you a little better. I really like these memes. You learn a lot about people quickly. Fun!

I didn't know my husband had a long lost twin, except for the movie snacks (cost too much) and the perm (too vain). No wonder we like eachother. I know it isn't all about me, but I'm the oldest too.

I'd really like to see the perm, and you don't need a scanner. Just take a photo of the photo and enhance it a little. It's what I always do.

B-rad is rad. I remember before you were engaged he took you through the mountains in a snowstorm to go meet his parents for a weekend. I was terrified to let you go. Dad said, "The thing I can tell about Brad is we can trust him. He'll take care of her. I'm not a bit worried." We've felt that way ever since! He's as rad as can B.

He DOES make the best pancakes. I still remember them and it's been like three years. He really is a great guy and you are lucky to have each other!

Oh, you always make me laugh!

The stories I could tell about what my dh did on his South American mission!!! Great fodder for a post, I guess.

So glad the program went well.
