Spoiler Alert – I Am Madly In Love With Captain Thoughtful

Two years ago today, I married the best man in the entire universe to ever exist ever. He is brilliant, and handsome, and clever, and hilarious, and thoughtful (duh), and perfect for me in every way. And I love him more and more every day. And I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I did. And I know that I’m gushing and this is totally corny, but deal with it y’all. Just this once (and also once a year on December 22 for the rest of my life) I am going to be corny as hell.

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life! Thanks for marrying me!

How I Save Money On Wedding Presents

About 90% of the time, when people say “fiancé”, I hear “Beyoncé”. 100% of the time, this results in me making a fool out of myself in one of two ways.

1. “You call her “your Beyoncé?” that is so amazing! Your love will never die.”


On the bright side, there are at least 3 wedding gifts we didn’t have to buy because of this so really I’m being wise with our money. This is just another instance of my bizarre and often unsettling behavior having unexpected benefits. Also, if you have met Beyoncé and don’t tell me everything I will ruin you.

You Could Call Us A Power Couple…

Have y’all seen the Meyers Briggs Harry Potter equivalents infographic? I know it’s been online for ages, and you better believe I was all over it when it first hit the interwebs, but I had never asked Captain Thoughtful which character he is, which was a terrible lapse on my part because when I found out it made me SO HAPPY.

I am an ENFJ which means I’m Dumbledore thankyouverymuch. As I found out on Saturday, Captain Thoughtful is an ISTP which means he is…..waitforit…Harry Potter!

Basically, we are the best team ever and should the world ever be in danger I feel confident we could save it together. You could call us a power couple, but we would totally demur from that because it’s not power we want. We are way more into protection of the innocent and free candy and like fair treatment of magical creatures and stuff. But if you want to call us a power couple, we can’t like, stop you…..

Here Is A Thought On A Friday



Today, would have been his sixth birthday. The following is one of my favorite memories with him, and it occurred just one week before the accident. I am beyond thankful for that weekend that will always be remembered as the “weekend before”.


Aiden: Will you play with me? I’ll be Captain America and you be Batman.

Me: Of course! But, if I’m Batman am I the bad guy?

Aiden: (Shocked and slightly disgusted look on his face) Ummmmm, what do you think? Batman is a GOOD guy. We’re both GOOD GUYS. Duh.

Me: That’s true, but Batman definitely has some darkness in him.

Aiden: Oh geez. That doesn’t maaaaaattttttter, he did good things and didn’t let the darkness control him. Duh. Now let’s play!

Me: You’re a really smart kid you know that?

Aiden: Yeeeeeesssss, I know that. Let’s PLAY!

And then we spent the next hour shooting Nerf darts at each other and random targets around the house. It was one of the best hours of my life.

Yay We Are Nerds!

While walking out of an awesome sporting goods store….

Me: That place is so great! It doesn’t look like much but then you go in and wham! It’s like the Tardis, bigger on the inside than it is on the out.

Captain Thoughtful: I was thinking it was more like the magically enhanced tents used in Harry Potter.

Me: Equally nerdy responses! We’re the best! High five!

Today is Captain Thoughtful’s Birthday!

My husband, Captain Thoughtful, turns 30 today. I’m going to break it down for y’all honest-like:

I love this man more and more every day, more and more than words can say.

Captain Thoughtful and I met at a Patrick Sweany concert and when Patrick played this song, I wondered at the time whether it would be “our song” if we ever dated because I was already crushing mad hard on the Captain. We did date, and then we got engaged, and a year and a half ago, we got married. This is our song.

Happy Birthday darling! I can’t wait to fill every day of the next 70 years with more and more love!
