What Tyler Says About Me

Shortly after I started this blog, Tyler agreed to do a guest post for me.  I loved reading what he had to write!  You can read that post from September 2011 right here!  When I saw Becky was doing a link up where you had your spouse (or any loved one) write random facts about you, I begged him to do it for me.  And of course, he eventually agreed.

I feel like I need to explain myself on a few of these, but I will hold back.  For now.  I will let this post be all his! So here is what my sweet hubby has to say about me...

Amy asked me to jot down some random things that maybe I know about Amy that you might not.  Unfortunately, after being together for nearly 10 years (married 7 this July- I think...) nothing she does seems entirely random.  Don't get me wrong, that's not to say there is no spontaneity, but that seems different to me.  Regardless, here's my short list-

1. She's gotta have that toilet seat just right.  I was raised to put not only the seat down, but the lid too (which, when I think of it, really says something about my Mom since she was the only woman in a house full of boys).  Amy wants the seat down, lid up.  Here I thought I was doing things right all of these years, guess not.

2. This week she drove 15 miles to the gym where she works to run on the treadmill for a bit.  Has she mentioned we have a new treadmill ourselves down in our basement?  Figure that one out.  When you do, let me know why that one makes sense.

3.  She was, and still is pretty athletic. She played college basketball for a couple years (gave it up when she met me, likely due to her wanting to spend as much time with me as possible...)

4.  Speaking of college, back when we did party in college, Amy could hold her own when it came to knocking a few back.  She was no lightweight, though I think she'd rather be.  Hell, at that point in our lives, I would have preferred it too- she would have been a cheaper date.

5.  Here's one for us both- neither of us can dance, period.

6.  Amy sings to Kyla "You are my Sunshine" every night before bed.

7.  Amy once bought a kid's family tickets to go watch the Milwaukee Brewers play since he was a huge fan, had never been to a game, and his family likely couldn't afford it.

8.  From the drive me nuts category: she has the uncanny knack for asking me to get something for her as soon as I sit down.  I mean, c'mon!

9.  She runs this house and family.  She's also the schedule keeper- we'd all be lost and late without Mommy.

10.  I secretly think (secret's out now I suppose) that she keeps saying she's a bad cook just so she doesn't have to make meals.  Every time she does, they're delicious.

11.  She can't sleep without the fan on.  However, in a jaw-dropping move, she also needs extra blankets most nights...  again, you figure it out, please clue me in.

I'm sure she's got a bunch of other quirks and randomness that I can't draw on now for whatever reason.  All in all, she's Mrs. Mommy, and we love her to pieces (even though I know I'm right about keeping the toilet seat and lid down).

Mr. Mommy


  1. I love this!! I've asked my Hubby to write one as well so will be posting it on my blog later today! I totally sleep with a fan too and now my girls have to have one- ha! I recently started following your blog so just wanted to say hi!


  2. haha...great post Tyler!

    I'm guessing that #2 has something to do with being able to get out of the house for awhile, kid free :-)

    And #11 is totally me too! Gotta have the fan for noise, but I'm always cold lol

  3. OK, that was really cute! Love it! I'm not sure I'll convince my husband to do one about me...I'd probably be punching him in the arm, disagreeing, but laughing.

  4. I love this post; so cute!

    I agree with Shawna, I am thinking you went to the gym just to get out! :)

    And, I never used to have to sleep with the fan on, but now we do every night and I like it just for the noise.

    How sweet are you to pay for a family's tickets to the Brewers, Amy!

  5. I love love LOVE THIS!! :) Yay Tyler for joining in the fun!

  6. I love this!! I forgot she was doing it!! I wonder if it's too late to ask my hubs! Your hubs sounds so sweet and I love his comments about you! :)
