Blame Boredom

I don't know if there is anyone on the planet more committed to finding reasons to take a study break than me. I am truly devoted. My studying consists of 30-minute bursts followed by 60 minutes of contemplating if it's acceptable to wear yesterday's socks while eying the laundry.

My test is Wednesday, and I've come to the conclusion that it's just a test, I can take it again (in December, but nonetheless) and there are more important things to be done. Namely, posting these photos of my better half. Behold:

This was a hike we took on Easter weekend. Notice my CCFA shirt! Also notice the complete and utter sexiness of my husband. I know what you're thinking: Brad Pitt who?

At this point I told him to act like a MAN, and we got this shot. This is as good as it gets, folks.

This is Matt giving me his come hither look. This very look is responsible for our second date. Note the child's size hat.

Then we went back to my in-laws for dinner. At this point most people relaxed, but Matt took it upon himself to set-up his slackline (aka tight-rope...remember that?). Unfortunately, my camera died and I didn't get him in the act. You're welcome.

I'm not sure what kind of wife I am to be posting these tongue-in-cheek photos, but Matt is out golfing, and I'm stuck inside "studying", so I say that's about fair.


  1. i likes. and my supportive thoughts will be with you on Wednesday. btw, Matt's shirt looks like a guy sitting in a chair being shot by another guy.. and something about drinking. as off as that guess may be, it seems pretty manly to me.

  2. Aw, y'all look like you have so much fun together, and that's the most important thing so I'm sure he won't mind this stellar visual ode to his wonderfulness :)

    Congrats again!

  3. Ragamuffin,
    My dear Matthew would never wear a shirt with a gun, bless his nerdy heart. That shirt depicts a scene from the film "There Will Be Blood" where Daniel Day Louis' character says, "I drink your milkshake!" The scene on the shirt is very literal (and not at all what the movie intended), and the guy is drinking another man's milkshake with an astonishingly long straw. Matt quotes this line often, so I had to indulge him with the shirt a couple Christmases ago.

    He's put up with me this long, with the general dynamic being he does something endearing but nerdy and then I make fun of him. And then I write about it in a very public forum. It works, so we're sticking to it.
