Missed Opportunities

Life is full of opportunity.  Sometimes you don’t recognize it until it’s too late.  Then sometimes you’re just at the right place at the right time when the planets align and prime opportunity presents itself.  When you find yourself in that situation, you grab hold of that opportunity and you OWN it.

My husband totally blew it this weekend.  You just don’t get many opportunities in life like he got Saturday night, and he totally blew it.

We were in PetSmart.  I had to pee, so I went to the restroom while he was standing in line.  When I made it back to the checkout counter, he was giggling like a schoolgirl.  I was all, “What’s so funny?”  Between giggles he was like, “I’ll tell you in a minute.”

He giggled through the rest of the transaction.

As we made our way back to the car he told me why, and I was so disappointed in him.

When he swiped his debit card and went to enter his PIN, the cashier, referring to their new touch-screen credit card machine, said, “It’s real sensitive.  You don’t have to pound it.”

And my husband did NOT say, “That’s what she said.”


I thought I knew him better than that.

That’s What She Said

A few weeks ago Bobbie at 2010 Journey in Running hosted a Snorg Tees giveaway, and LUCKY ME, I won!  As I was browsing their site to pick out my shirt, I saw this one and knew I had to have it.

Love it!


This shirt kind of sparked a conversation between me and my husband, too.  I wore it out one night while we were on vacation.  There were all these dolled up Barbie chicks walking around in their short skirts and hooker heels (no hate for the heels–I have ’em too!), and then there was me in my That’s What She Said t-shirt, ripped Aeropostale jeans, and Old Navy flip-flops.  He loves the fact that I can wear that and be totally confident, and I love the fact that he loves that.  I think that’s just something that comes with age.  I look at those girls now and think, “Could you possibly try any harder?”  Don’t get me wrong, I like to wear cute outfits when we go out too!  But, man, my ass sure does look good in those jeans…
