Mr. Right

Skip and I on one of our 3rd or 4th dates. Remember that we had already been best friends for years.

Late 80's -Skip singing with his band
I saw this cute Valentine meme at Barb's site and thought I better
do it while we are still in the Valentine mood around here. Whoever came up with this idea, it is a great one.

His age: 39
How tall is he? 5' 11"
How long have you been together (married)? We will be married 15 yrs. this June. We have been best friends since we were 15, but did not start dating until we were 21 yrs. old.
How long did you know each other before you got together? Friends for 6 years and then one summer we saw each other as something more and then we were inseparable. We married two years later.
What physical features attracted you to him first?: It was either his gorgeous eyes or his red mitsubishi eclipse sports car. Just kidding, definitely his eyes and his smile.
Eye color: Green and my girls were blessed with the same color.
Hair color: Dark brown at the moment, but I will tell you without hesitation that he has changed his hair color more than I have. He's a rock star after all.
Hair Style:The cut rarely changes. I would have to say it is something like Simon Lebon's New Moon on Monday style. Eighties all the way baby!
Normal Outfit: I guess he usually goes for a jeans and t-shirt look, however I love when that he dresses the t-shirt up with a casual blazer when we go on dates.
How did you meet? Driver's Ed, the summer before our sophomore year. Instant friends!
How serious is it? What do you think? I think I'll keep him around.
Do your parents like him? Definitely!
Do his parents like you? They are the sweetest in-laws ever, and Skip's mom tells me all the time how much she loves me.
Do you trust him? Not with my Red Bull.
Would you share a toothbrush with him? Actually we have shared on vacation before, but I like my own thank you very much.
Would he let you wear his pants? Do boxers count? I wear those all the time to bed.
Do you have a shirt of his that you sleep in? I have several that I steal from him to sleep in, but he prefers me to wear my own. Let me rephrase that, he likes me to wear the ones he has bought for me. Need I say more.
Do you like the way he smells? Oh yeah! I pick out his cologne, but he smells yummy without it.
Can you picture having kids with him? Oh my goodness, he is the best daddy ever! I knew he would be because of the way he acted with my niece and nephew before we got married.
What bothers you the most about him? Probably that he is good at everything.
Does he have a temper? No, that would be me.
Are you happy to be with him? Very happy, mama likes!
Does he embarrass you in public? ALWAYS!
Does he have any piercings? No
Any tattoos? No
Does he have any scars that you know of? Yes, most recently from his hip surgery last summer.
Is he a Party dude or Stay at home? He prefers to stay at home for sure!
Is he Outgoing or Shy? He is a complete extrovert and everyone loves him! Strange that he likes to be at home, yet he is completely the life of the party when we are out with others.
Does he love his mama? Yes, as a matter of fact, he called her today.
Would he hang out with you and YOUR friends? Not by his own will. He can only take girl talk for about 5 seconds and then gets that glazed over look. He does, however, love to hang out with me, thank goodness!
Sing? Oh yes my honey sings! He has one CD out and many other songs which he has played at church. He won a songseeker award at Saddleback church 3 years ago for his song, "I Want To Be Like Jesus." He was just singing Neil Diamond favorites to me earlier tonight. He found Neil Diamond karaoke on Itunes this evening. Pray for me.
This was so much Fun!
Feel free to borrow this to tell us all about your man.

Great job! I think it is so cool that you guys were best friends for years first! That is awesome!

Gave me a giggle to read that he changes haircolor more than you!

He sounds like a keeper, Susie! Hang on to that guy!

Hey we're praying for you about that Neil Diamond issue.
Sung to the tune of "America"
"everywhere along the coast
they're prayin' for the Moziseks
Everywhere we raise a toast
we're prayin' for the Moziseks.
Home..Skip's turnin' on Karoke
plug your ears, this will be hoaky
Classic tunes given scorn
classic tunes given scorn"

You are so funny. It is pretty scary that we both have the same taste in music. Jeff will sing James Taylor, Barry Manilow and so much more. He embarres the girls more then me. I just go all warm and fuzzy when he sings to me.
Skip is a great guy. He is for sure a keeper even when he sings Neil Diamond. That is just to funny.

Linda said...

Good job Susie. It is so neat to read about these solid, loving marriages. He sounds like a great guy.
How is your son doing? I've been praying for him - and you too!

Janice said...

Love your pictures! How cute! This was a great post. Enjoyed reading this. You two are so cute.

Skip said...

All these girl blogs are too funny!
It's like reading the script to "The Notebook" every post. Just kidding(a little) Thank you for making me out to be so nice. A few truths in the galaxy that will never change
1. Neil Diamond rocks
2. Simon LeBon's hair is the ultimate
3. Hair color is totally optional
4. Drakkar and Izod Lacoste rules
5. It's true I am good at everything but humility (you know i'm kidding)
6. The final irrefutable law of the galaxy is that I LOVE YOU!

Skip and Terry seem a lot alike in their personalities. This was fun to read! Who knows, maybe one day we can all MIRL...=)

Fun meme! I checked out Tiffany's and may have to do this, too! It sounds like you two were made for each other. I love that you are so in love after all these years. It seems there are not too many of us around these days!

Barb said...

What! You don't like Neil Diamond? LOL

I don't know which I like more - your meme or Skip's lengthy response. How fun that you wear his boxers. And I'm not convinced it was his eyes - that's a pretty cool car!

Wasn't this fun? It was absolutely the perfect Valentine's week meme and you did a great job with it.

Okay Susie, what is this...the best kept secret in blogland! Skip has his own CD! That is pretty amazing! If he is anything like Neil Diamond I might even buy it! :) Loved all your cute answers! Nice he puts on a blazer when you have your date nights! lolj
