In the spirit of Valentine's Day, some blogger friends and I wanted to put together a little something special for you today, and we roped our other halves into playing along with us! We all have a series of questions about the nitty-gritty details of our blogs and homes, and with no persuasion or coercing our husbands are spilling all of the dirt. I feel a little bit like I'm on the old Newlywed Game TV show today...
I wanted to thank Claire from Claire Brody Designs for organizing this series today. I remember reading a similar group of posts last year and it was so enlightening and entertaining to learn fun little personal details about some of my favorite bloggers, all from their husband's point of view.
Here's a quick background if you're visiting from one of the other participants today (Welcome!), or are a newer reader but don't know much about me personally. We met in 1990 at Oklahoma Baptist University, and went on our first date (on Valentine's Day!) in 1992. We married 3 weeks after I graduated in 1994 (he graduated the previous year) and when we returned from our honeymoon moved all of our possessions in a tiny U-Haul trailer to Ft. Worth, where we lived for 5 years while he attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary then began serving in Youth Ministry, and I taught school.
I had too much fun last night digging out some old photos to share today. Most of them are from our dating/very early marriage years. Disclaimer: We met and later married in the early 90's. ;) The photos are grainy, the clothes are ridiculous, and the hair is big!! I'll try to let him talk but might add in my two cents in parentheses at the end of his response.
How involved are you with Jennifer's blog?
I hope you had fun reading through our post today, we had fun putting it together! You'll want to make sure to hop over to read these friends' interviews with their husbands today, too. We've all been looking forward to reading each other's all week, so I'm headed there now too!
