confessions {family edition}.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012


to many - myself included - Trev remains a bit of a mystery; I'm always learning new things about the guy I call my husband - some good, some bad and some just downright embarrassing - sure sucks that your wife has a blog and likes to link up with E's
doesn't it buddy? 

you know the legend behind the man, but do you know the man in front of the legend? 

- two of Trevor's biggest fears at the moment are (1) the Big Brother & Sisters Renew Crew which offers free curb-side pick up of used clothing, furniture and household items & (2) the Canada Post delivery van {and man}. You know what they say... "out with the old and in with the new"... but in Trev's mind reality that means OUT with his old and IN with Saige, Gabe & I's new.

- the man would live off of cheddar and ice tea if I let him. 

- I'm fairly confident that prior to me moving in, Trev's house would have been condemned by the City of Vernon. It was seriously  that bad. I wish I had a photo, but just imagine Noah's Ark gone terribly wrong... fish, ferrets, cats, dogs... I swear he's never met an animal he didn't like love. Have I told you about the time we had a half dead robin living on our kitchen table? or his "pet" wolf spider? or the marmot we just had to rescue & relocate? or the snake, frog, ____________ that innocently crossed our path and ended up in Trevor's ginormous hands? I'm serious when I say I married the Caucasian Dr. Doolittle.
- my boy has ZERO fashion sense. If it were up to him he'd wear shirts with skulls and/or flames on them 24/7. Pre-ME he had a crush on some random girl who worked at a clothing store and as an excuse to talk to her would go in and buy random stuff in random sizes. While that story makes me laugh, the contents of his closet made me cry; for example he owned not one but 2 pairs of black nylon dress pants with dice & fire embroidered on the hem! I.kid.you.not.  

- I force my husband to tweeze his uni-brow {our daughter comes by her connecting eyebrow honestly}.
- I've seen firsthand why Trev has a 'zero tolerance policy' for: scary movies, roller coasters and needles. Want to see a grown man hyperventilate? tell him his ear - which got ripped off in a lacrosse brawl - requires immediate stitches. Want to see a grown man scream "oh my gawd" every 3 seconds? convince him to go on the Galaxyland roller coaster with you. 

- in high school Trev got some random girl to pierce his ear. Every time I am reminded of this story I can't help but picture him as Sandra Dee in that scene from 'Grease' where Frenchy takes a pin to Sandy's ear. ** for the record Trev was still rocking the hoop earring when I met him in 2003 :S

- Trev's ex-girlfriend was legitimately crazy {but that's a whole other blog post}.

- he refuses to wear anything striped which breaks my stripe loving heart.
- he's actually the funny one in our relationship but since he's pretty quiet and doesn't crave the spotlight like me, I steal both his thunder and jokes.

- I recently learned that once upon a time Trev had a PERM! he was like, "why does is smell like perm solution in here?" and I'm like, "how do you know what perm solution smells like?!" and how did I not know this before our wedding slideshow? I'll seriously pay good money to whoever brings me a photo of spiral haired Trev.

So there you have it, confessions from the legend himself courtesy of moi. There are just so many diMENsions to my MAN - can't wait for odd fact #1429 which I'm sure I'll be learning more about tomorrow.

I love learning new things about my hubby. LIke the fact that he "doesn't know how to bite his nails." Really? How do you NOT know how to to that, its not like it takes skill.

I love your photoshop magic with the perm hair!

Your unibrow post cracked me up. My hubby went to get his hair cut and the stylist asked John if she could "buzz" his bushy eyebrows. Haha!

MSDeyle said...

I love how you can see how much you love him through this post, even though you are pointing out quirks and flaws.

Those littles details make the men we love the men we love!

Ha, I too love learning new random facts. Like my non-sports loving husband randomly likes UFC fights which I didn't find out until 2.5 years into our marriage.

doesn't know how to bit his nails? I'm sure there's a youtube tutorial out there for him or I could get my 3 year old to show him the anti-nail clipper ropes ;)

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I can't picture it, but I love it! so random.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

HAHAHA - let's just say she had a tough time letting go {and after reading the above you can totally see why}.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...
