Stuff Portrait Friday - Let's Talk About Love

Kami over at the DallasKs is substituting for our normal SPF teacher, Kristine. As per her instructions, we are to show you the following:

Something we love about our house
Something we hate about our house
Something we love about ourselves

I am nothing if not obedient. Shut up. So here goes.


This is what I love about my house - THAT IT IS, INDEED, MINE. I know this is my address and I might get a stalker but WHATEVER. The point is that the husband and I had a lot of hard, financially difficult years. We truly thought that home ownership was years down the road. We made it happen last July. I love this house. I love that we did not have to settle for a "starter" home. I am comfortable here. I am proud to have my own little piece of land in this world. I do not like very few things in this home - which brings me to.....

This is what I like least. The only door out of my house that goes to the backyard is in my bedroom. What contracting genius thought this up needs to be punched in the nuts. We plan to cut a hole in the garage wall and put a door out through there but for now, this is it. Stupid ass architect.

What I love most about me. This is a photo of me and the husband. It is my favorite picture of us. I don't love how I look in this photo. I don't even recall this evening as being one of my favorites. I am not perfect by any stretch. However, as my husband says, I am perfect for him. I think I am a good wife. Thus far, this has been my toughest job and I love the fact that I try every day to do it well. I'm sure motherhood will make this look like a fucking cake walk, but for now, the thing I love most about me is that I try very hard to be the person he thinks I am.

So, there you have it. Let me know if you played!!!!!

PS - And no, I could not possibly be whiter in that picture if I tried. Good GOD.

You are a Saltine in that picture, girl. Oh yeah.

I love your house, and I am so glad it's YOURS.

That outside door being in your room is pretty stupid.

(Oh, and I can't be your hero. I have maids that clean my downstairs every other week. Mmmmmkay?)

It’s a good time to talk about love—any and every kind of love!

Good for you on the home ownership! That too is one of the things I love! You are beautiful!

I played!

Aw, look how cute you two are...you hubby looks so content and so in love with you!

 
at 8:40 AM Blogger sullen girl said...

I so love what you wrote about the hubby... "the thing I love most about me is that I try very hard to be the person he thinks I am." I LOVE that... Sigh. You guys are so freakin' cute together :D

Yay you on the home ownership :) Even though the door is retarded. Easy fix though :D

I played!

The only door to the backyard is in your bedroom??? That's insane. I agree, go visit the contractor!!

I like the expression on your husband's face in that pic. So content.

Great SPF!

 
at 9:07 AM Blogger Lee said...

LOL, I'm in the white enough to glow in the dark club too!

stupid contractor is right, LOL

 
at 9:20 AM Blogger Jana said...

What a great pic of you and your hubby!

I played!

 
at 9:25 AM Blogger Liza said...

awww!! i love the picture of you and your hubby. It's very sweet!!I would hate if I had my backdoor in my bedroom! I'd feel nervous all the time!

I played!

 
at 9:27 AM Blogger Vajana said...

That is a great picture of you and your hubs, and your house looks great, without the damn door in the bedroom! What is that for, when your husband chases you around the house for loving, you can get a quick getaway???? WTF?

 
at 9:47 AM Blogger Christie said...

we used to have ahouse with the back door in the bedroom, freaked me out- happy spf!

 
at 9:51 AM Blogger Tammy said...

I think you look fantastic. I love the red lips.

Yea, I'm not sure about the whole backdoor in my bedroom thing. That sucks ass.

 
at 9:55 AM Blogger Cat said...

Awesome SPF pics girl!
I know how you feel on the HOUSE onwership. been there and done that.

I agree the builder or whomever only put one door in your room , should be kicked in the nuts!

And you and your hubby are addorable! what a beautiful couple you guys are!

Take care

 
at 10:10 AM Blogger Darlene said...

Congrats on the house! And I put almost the same exact thing about myself--although I added mommy and wife....great minds think alike!

 
at 10:24 AM Blogger TBG said...

What a great house. I remember seeing it in earlier posts!

That was probably the dumbest thing I have ever seen the only door outside in the bedroom! I wonder what people think when they are designing!

I played!

Your house is really cute. It's so nice to own your home!!

I've never seen your husband before; he looks like a big teddy bear! Great photo of you both.

SFG - I am SO glad to finally know what you look like!!! :) You are very pretty, and you and your husband look great together!! ;)

 
at 12:00 PM Blogger shellibells said...

I think you both look absolutely stunning together...

Congrats on your home ownership...that is a big accomplishment!
:)

I play SPF on Friday nights, be sure to pop in.

 
at 1:08 PM Blogger Sheri & SuZan said...

Your house is great! I do agree-the only door to the back is in the bedroom? WTF! You and hubby look so much in love!

SuZan and I played.

 
at 1:10 PM Blogger zerodoll said...

i love the dreamy look on your husband's face holding you. how nice.

and congrats on the house.

(i played too.)

 
at 1:26 PM Blogger Teena said...

Congrats on the house! I bought my first place (and I'm still there) five years ago and it was the best! It's just a small two bedroom condo but in 20 more years, it will all be mine :)

Your back door is through your bedroom?? Um ... sure, that makes sense!

 
at 1:26 PM Blogger Teena said...

And you two look sooooo cute together!

 
at 1:26 PM Blogger Teena said...

And I played too!

 
at 2:18 PM Blogger Mrs.Strizzay said...

I love the whole nut punching thing. LMAO

I played

 
at 2:31 PM Blogger Spikey1 said...

That is a great hug! Cheers!

 
at 2:48 PM Blogger Football Widow said...

Congrats on the house. I love having my own house too. I really like the pic of you and hubby. I don't get the door thing either. That's just weird.

 
at 2:49 PM Blogger Sea_creature said...

AAaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! I love that picture of you guys!! It's so cute! Yes, you do look a litte white but I think that has a lot to do with the flash. You look lovely and, most importantly, happy! Have a great weekend!

at 3:28 PM Blogger MilkMaid said...

How freaking WEIRD they put the door in your room and not from the garage!

This is a really nice picture of you, you are beautiful...you have a great smile!

 
at 3:28 PM Blogger MilkMaid said...

Oh yeah..I played.

 
at 4:41 PM Blogger MsPerdie said...

You too look SO cute together. Lots of luck!

 
at 4:59 PM Blogger Lori said...

You guys look so happy!

PS I LOVED you comment on Spikey's page.

 
at 5:39 PM Blogger Sheri & SuZan said...

I love the picture of you and your hubby...PRICELESS!

I know how you feel about home ownership. We were in the same situation a few years ago there is nothing like your own place, that you can do whatever you want.

Do you think the architect was drunk when he designed the access to the back yard?

 
at 7:42 PM Blogger Mandy said...

Congrats on owning your house! That picture of you and the husband is beautiful. And what is with that door in your bedroom? That's very random. I played.

 
at 8:39 PM Anonymous JD's Rose said...

I promise not to stalk you!

Yeah, that door is a bit weird, isn't it?!

That pic is so cute. He looks like he is fully bear hugging you!

 
at 9:52 PM Blogger The Kept Woman said...

Uh yeah, the designer of that house was clearly male. It's a nice door though!

There's no feeling in the world like feeling at peace in your own home.

 
at 10:23 PM Blogger Pissy Britches said...

Well I will be damn!
This is the 1st fucking picture I have seen of yours!!
You lil cutie patootie!

 
at 11:33 PM Blogger Nap Queen said...

I feel the same way about our house. It's ours. It's small, but cute. I love that photo of you and your husband. He looks SOOOOO happy to be with you and vice versa :) You are awesome.

Hey there! Just browsing your blog from Kami's. DH is from Metairie - lots of family there, mostly OK, FIL in Picayune. DH's stepsister's parents were from Waveland. No idea where they are now. We went back at Thanksgiving, and going again for Mardi Gras. Not expecting much change still. Congratulations on your home - nice door! You and your DH look so in love. Isn't that the best? Cheers!

Behold, the mighty flash! It's okay SFG, we're ALL that white when the flash goes off!

Great SPF, and I played too!

Do you like to fish? Pull out the line, throw the bait on, huh?

Anyway, this is an awesome post about your love for you husband however I was lured over here by the comment on Kristines blog..."...Boob Sweat..." I was hoping for something different.

Congrats on the house! It is a good feeling to have something to call your own.
