This should be fun!
This week, we were asked to get our HUSBAND's to answer the questions... basically blog for us. Ummm, Mauricio does NOT blog. It was pain staking and I may or may not have had to bribe him with "favors" in order to go through with it. (TMI? Maybe...)
It took him THREE tries, but eventually he hunkered down and did it.
I sent him the questions to read over and his first response was:
The answer to all of these questions is... boobs
So I told him to try again...
His second response was:
I feel like this is a plot for wives to force open conversations about these topics with their husbands.
Can you say STALLING?!
But finally, third time was the charm.
Here are Mauricio's answer's for Wedded Bliss Wednesday! Enjoy!
What was the first thing you noticed about your wife?
-The way she commanded the room and unwillingly had everyone's attention. Kind of intimidating at first, but it was nothing a little game of "hard to get" (on my part) couldn't solve.
When you first started dating your wife, what kept you calling/asking her out?
- Well when I first started to date her, she didn't quite know about it because I hadn't actually told her yet so a majority of my efforts were on getting her up to speed with all the date she had missed and actually getting her to agree to join me for one. Once that was out of the way, I had a moral obligation on behalf of all daters to call her back and try to correct all the mistakes I made from the previous date. It was a tough mountain to climb, but here we are I guess!
What is your wife's best quality?
She's the bravest person I know. Some would say she's got some crazy chutzpah, or cara-de-pau, or nerves of steel. Things (mostly but not limited to, occurring in some sort of medical environment) that scare the daylight out of me are a walk in the park for her. But it could also be considered a double-edged swor...uhh, I mean, that's all for this question!
What's your favorite thing to do with your wife? (ahem, keep it clean).
Going on long road trips by ourselves, (or more recently with quiet/sleeping kids). There's something about being locked in a car with nowhere to hide out or seclude to that inspires bolder/healthier conversations. Even when we're done talking, just sharing the same exact agenda for a couple of hours is a good thing to do (in moderation of course).
And folding laundry... that's the cleanest thing I could think of involving me... and her... and random clothes on/around the bed.
What are you most excited for the future with your wife?
Sharing every given experience with her and accomplishing marital, family and financial goals.
How do you make your wife feel loved?
By letting her choose whatever vacuum cleaner she'd like for her birthday.
By doing the little things; the expected and most importantly the unexpected. Getting her flowers on a Tuesday, filling up her water cup at night, taking over with the kids when she's had a long day, telling her she's beautiful, listening to her, remembering anniversaries, planning birthday part... errr, umm, just overall being a perfect husband by doing all of these things all the time ;)
He blew me away...
As he usually does.
