Enough about us...

I loved my little roll call post a few weeks back. It was fun getting a little more background on my blogging buddies. In typical fashion, you gave me a little and now I WANT MORE!

What about your husbands? I get little tidbits here and there, but I want details! Since this is my blog, I'll start...

My husband is (name removed by author...you ladies are making me paranoid!)
He is originally from Vermont, went to college in Easton, Pennsylvania and finally ended up here in "the swamps of Jersey." He works for the Star-Ledger newspaper in management. He plays tennis and tries to play golf when he can. (Do we sound like boring suburban white people or what?) DON"T ANSWER THAT!!

Ummm...let's see. He is very smart in a different way than I am. I'm street smart, he's book smart. (Don't you just love the way I call myself smart?!! Does smart ass count?)

We both have adult A.D.D. (self diagnosed of course). He's a younger man...by 15 months. Just call me Demi!

I know what you're wondering and the answer is yes, he does like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain-but you can't have him because he's all mine!!!

Tell me tell me about your husband, partner or significant other...I want all the dirt!

OK, hubs.

Well, I call him hubs to protect some of his anonymity. He is 41 (older than me by 7 years), a firefighter, a dad to 2 (by ex-wife). He is goofy and funny and silly. Despite his giant size, children love him and are not intimidated in the least.

He is the other half of my warped brain. Poor thing.

Coach showers on a daily basis in a community shower with a gaggle of athletes and coaches. They see him naked far more often than I do.

He is 84,000 months (9 years) older than me and seriously, seriously low key. Not confrontational or exploratory or curious about everything. Just easy and consistent and calm and well, he's Coach.

Like the opposite of me.

My husband is Mr. P - like SFG, I call him that for the thin veil of anonymity that I tell myself it provides!

He's 34, I'm older by 4 months. He's absolutely brilliant, in a book smart type of way. He's a complete idiot in a street smart type of way. Luckily like the two of you, I am the brilliantly street smart one. He's a Harvard grad, played football in college and is a partner at his firm. He also drives the most disgusting car I've ever seen. He's pretty awesome and there's nobody I'd rather hang out with.

Hubby is 8 years older than me. He was raised a snob, private school...expensive college. BUT he works all the hours God gives WITH and beside his crew, and is so unlike his family. He is completly down to earth. Love him.

Kate said...

My husband is Jon. Whenver I see that show - or even the title - "Kate & Jon plus *" I break out it a cold sweat! He's 2 years older than me. We grew up in neighboring towns in CT & even found that we knew many people in common but didn't meet til our early 20's. He's a marathoner & is doing his 1st triathalon this summer. He has a boring job that sounds interesting (he flies satellites) but wants to change careers & do something to help at risk kids. He does more than his fair share of the housework and is the pickiest eater I have ever met.
He's also mistaken for Andre Agassi quite a bit.

How's that?

My hubby is very street smart and that's where his daughter gets it from. He grew up in Downtown Jersey City and always had a story to tell the "kids" much to my chagrin !! Actually he's book smart too, fun to be with and very handsome. I'll keep him (the first 44 years have been a blast)

Polly said...

I met my soul mate at college when he was 19 and I was 20. I noticed he was sort of a loner - the only guy in a flannel shirt and chukkas. He was so different - loved animals, loved his family. We had much in common as far as our backgrounds. We've been married 20 years and are living back in his hometown where he works for his family business. He always makes me laugh and I love him very much.
: )

Hubby and I met at a prior workplace. He sent flowers on the Friday before Valentine's Day anonymously. We went out for dinner about a month after and I asked if it was he.
He works in the healthcare field behind the scenes. He is 16 months older than I am.
He and his brothers love cars. (Too much so in my opinion).
He is a little kid at heart. Shy and even tempered.
He is Italian and makes great biscottis.

I missed the first one, but here's the scoop on my husband. His name is John and we went to the same college, but didn't know each other. We met after he graduated (he's a year younger!) through mutual friends.

He is one of the biggest sports fanatics I know, college football and basketball being his true loves.

He's a great dad and loves to take the girls on adventures with him. I remember when A was a newborn, he let me sleep in and took both girls to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. He's also taken both girls to a UVA football game solo.

Belle in Bloom said...

My hunny is a year younger than me. Very book smart. Not street smart. He started off as a social worker and has been fighting for children's rights ever since. He works at our state capital as a policy writer and when state leg. is in, we hardly see him. He's extremley funny. A lot of slap stick. You would never know that if you worked with him as he is serious about his job. Saftey first is his motto. Drives me nuts. Oh, he may look preppy on the outside, but on the inside, total headbanger and video game lover. He's a wonderful husband and father. I love him.

THE MOM BOMB said...

My hubs came to the states from Russia when he was 5. He grew up in Brooklyn, I grew up in California, and we met in the middle of the country (Chicago)during law school. He has his own law practice and I was once an employee -- but I soon discovered that I'm not the kind of woman who can work for her spouse. Main problem: I kept teasing and making sarcastic remarks in front of other employees.

He is truly my soul mate. He also has watched the Matrix over 1,256,345 times.

Impoverished Preppy said...

Hmmm... DH spent the first six years of his life in Vermont, the next five in Lexington, KY, and then the next seven in Pittsburgh. He went to college at a small liberal arts school in Pennsylvania that counts several presidents among its alumni. He was a true preppy and attended prep school in Pittsburgh. Um, he is one of the few preppy Deadheads that I know. (The others being two of his fraternity brothers.) He is an avid hiker and backpacker and I will be eternally grateful to him for introducing me to Yosemite.

While he can be impatient and grumpy, in general he is a fantastic husband and a good father. He is my best friend and I am honestly grateful every day (give or take two or three days a year) that I am spending my life with him.

Oh and the fact that he is eight years older than I makes me feel hotter and younger than I really have any right to feel. :-)

Impoverished Preppy said...

Oh and I love him because he sings in the car with me, supports "family dance party" as a near daily activity, can quote poetry and prose that makes me melt, and knows what the past perfect tense is and how to use it.

A Buns Life said...

Mine is 3.5 years older than me, previously married (no kids), and we went to the same college but didn't know each other then. Met through mutual friends, but knew each other for almost a year before the "connection" was made. He had a full head of hair in the beginning and 10 years later, is as bald as a cue ball......he blames me. I love the bald head, goatee look. He has three large tattoos. He would get more if I would let him, which I won't. He is a very hands-on dad, well respected by his employees, major sports fan, still plays softball at least 2X a week in a competitive league, and can turn anything you say into a bad sex joke. He puts up with me, so he's a keeper!

linda said...

awww, these comments were so sweet! My husband is also, book smart and not street smart ( I am sensing a theme here) and went to an elite private school in NY then to Princeton and Brown. He loves science fiction and video games. He looks very proper and preppy , but he is a total goofball at home. He's a doll with our daughter ( even now when she's a cranky pre-teen).

The Immoral Matriarch said...

Jason is Jason. He's 12 years older than me [35] and a total nut. He loves the Celtics.

That's it. He's very boring.

Christine said...

Hmmmmm...missed the first roll call because IRL has kept me too busy to blog/read. I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

Hubby...he is the ninth of eleven children. That pretty much sums him up. He grew up on the East side of Detroit...that tells you nothing about him, haha!

He brings me coffee in bed every morning. He's got a fabulous sense of humor and make me laugh daily. He's also got a freaky photographic memory; you DON'T want to play Trivial Pursuit with him. He's annoying because he often wins in one turn.

Love this idea!

The Chic Chauffeur said...

How fun! My sweetie is almost 5 years older than I am, and is the sharpest guy I know. Nothing gets by him! He is also the most honest person I have ever met, and I'm so lucky to have him in my corner! He is all bark and no bite with the kids, and they know it, and have him wrapped around their little fingers. We all adore him. He will drive/fly/walk/crawl almost anywhere for a good game of golf!

LunaNik said...

My hubs is a two time State Champ in Tae Kwon Do. He plays a mean guitar, is sexy as hell in that bad boy latino kinda way, and is a whole lot smarter than he looks. I don't say that to be mean. When I first met him I thought he was gonna be a meat head (you know, good looking and dumb as hell), but then he de-bugged my computer, tuned my guitar, and fixed the brakes in my car. Amazing, no?

The Mrs. said...

Hubby is a contractor and builds luxury homes. He lives the sporting life, hunting, camping, loves Hemingway and the Hotel bel air! He's amazing!

Angry Julie said...

Angry Husband is 34 years old. 1 year , 11 months, and 10 days older than me.
We met at an 18 and over club, he was in the Marine Corps at the time. He's originally from Reno, NV.
Currently, he installs custom home theaters. We also both have self diagnosed ADD.

My other half is a Midwest Boy that has finally converted to being a Florida Boy and loving all things Sunshine. He graduated from a small private college where he was the class president. Met him when I had the pleause of buying Life Insurance from him. I like to tell people that I not only purchased a great policy, but I also got the agent as a bonus! Finally convinced him that he was too nice to be in Insurance 'cause he wasn't making any money. Now he is a VP of Sales and doing great. Still a workaholic, but knows how to leave his work at the door when he comes home to his 3 favorite ladies. This October, we will be celebrating 10 years as a happily married couple...
