40 Things I Have Learned From My Husband

My good friend Kylie posted a tribute on her blog to her husband, Mark, highlighting 39 things she has learned from him over the years. I found the list absolutely hilarious, but also realized that each item listed was something that only they share as a couple. I was so intrigued by this tribute that I decided to do one of my own for Robert. In celebration of his upcoming 40th birthday I will list 40 things I have learned from my husband. (drum roll please...)

  1. A few squares of toilet paper will do the don't have to use the whole roll.
  2. You do not have to give up honey buns, Little Debbie cakes or Lucky Charms just because you're no longer a child.
  3. Texting and driving is unacceptable, unless you know how to do it well.
  4. Everything will work itself out as long as you stay positive.
  5. What it means to be from East Tennessee
  6. Coors light is actually pronounced Cooze Light.
  7. You must always walk with a purpose.
  8. If you know how to watch TV correctly then you should never have to sit through a commercial.
  9. Dale's seasoning is good on everything.
  10. Going on a diet can always wait one more day, just eat what's in front of you.
  11. You are a ping pong champion...but I just took over the throne! ha!
  12. Sports Center trumps anything else on TV.
  13. Lionel Richie is the MAN! That's why I'm stuck on you...
  14. Punctuality is overrated
  15. KISS really was the best rock band of all time.
  16. You can do just about everything in bed.
  17. If you're late for a flight just park in short-term parking then dispute it when you get back.
  18. As long as you're able to check email from your phone then you're not technically working.
  19. Jagermeister is no longer mother's milk.
  20. If you feel young, you are young therefore you'll always be IDed.
  21. If we lost everything, at least we'd have each other.
  22. There's nothing better than clean sheets on a bed.
  23. There's nothing wrong with excessive talking as long as you have something to say.
  24. Fantasy Football is addictive.
  25. Peyton Manning will be the best quarterback of all time.
  26. The word "discharge" is absolutely repulsive.
  27. To show your Tennessee pride you must use the word "ain't" and sentences such as "I think my leg is broke."
  28. Dusting is key to a clean house.
  29. Why bother with the fat, always order the filet.
  30. True relaxation is a good head massage and hair even opens up your sinuses.
  31. Slam on brakes to grab the attention of a tailgater.
  32. No matter where you are "passing gas" is always hilarious.
  33. ADD follows you from childhood to adulthood.
  34. Totino's pizzas are deliciously cheap.
  35. Saying "my wife" is so much more satisfying than using her name.
  36. Taking a cab will cost way less than the alternative.
  37. You can always make a decision using the rock, paper, scissors method.
  38. A kiss before bed and a kiss goodbye are absolutely necessary.
  39. Having no more than two kids prevents being outnumbered and taken over.
  40. Marriages don't work unless you're good friends.
I thought it would be tough to list 40 items, but really, I could've continued on for several more. I laughed through this entire process and I reconfirmed for myself just how great of a husband I have. I love you, babe.
