First up, last night’s workout with Michael: “The Filthy Fifty” crossfit workout for time.
- 50 Box jumps
- 50 Jumping pull-ups
- 50 Kettlebell swings
- 50 Walking Lunges (50 each leg)
- 50 Knees to elbows
- 50 Push press (I did 35 lbs, hubs did 45 lbs)
- 50 Back extensions (Like sit ups for your back.)
- 50 Wall ball shots
- 50 Burpees
- 50 Double unders (That’s jumping rope with the rope passing under your feet twice. I did 100 normal jump ropes because I’m not that talented.)
It took me an hour to do that workout and it was HARD. Tonight is a tempo run…if my body cooperates and isn’t in too much pain. And then Friday is more torture from Michael.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a three things Thursday, so let’s get to it. Today’s three things are random things I love about my husband. (Feel free to gag.)
Are you sick of this picture yet? Well…TOO BAD cuz it’s my favorite.
1. He loves my best friend as much as I do.
Let’s face it. Guys don’t always love their significant other’s friends. My best friend, Lisa, lives near me so she’s a constant presence in my life. If they didn’t like each other, it would make social activites so much harder because I always want both of them there. It does help having the most awesome best friend in the world that is impossible to dislike, however it’s one of the things I’m most grateful for.
+10 Husband Points: Hubs bought me Britney tickets for my birthday – and got an extra ticket so Lisa could go with us. Yep. Pretty awesome.
2. He loves to do different and new things.
I have a lot of friends that have significant others that aren’t really into trying new things or would rather stay home. (*cough*Tom-go to Incubus with us*cough*) My hubs will pretty much do anything he thinks sounds like it has a remote chance of being fun. He’s definitely more open to new things than I am.
He loves to hoop and is really good at it.
He drinks Guinness. Ok, that’s not different or new. I just think he looks really cute in this picture.
He loves to dress up in costume. (Rob Zombie, anyone?)
He doesn’t mind photo bombing drag queens.
Overall, he’s just about open to anything. Even if he really doesn’t want to do something in particular (like watching The Back-up Plan), he’ll most likely do it just because I want to. Or because I pout.
3. He’s responsible with money and pays bills on time.
His money is his and my money is mine. While we split the bills, we still have seperate accounts. He can do whatever he wants with his money. We both spend money on things we really like (movies, concerts) but then we will usually forego other things that don’t mean as much (dinners and drinking out, expensive vacations) to make up for it. And more importantly, we live within our means. We really want to go to Alaska this year, but we need a new A/C for the house. First things first.
This may seem silly, but I can’t tell you how many people I hear bitch about how their significant other is horrible with money and that every month is a struggle. Everytime I hear about this issue in relationships, I think how awesome it is that I don’t have to worry about it and that my hubs knows how to prioritize things in his life.
Ok, so that wasn’t too sappy, right?
What does your significant other do that you love?
Updated: If you are single, feel free to tell me what you love about me! 🙂
