sh*t i do...that he hates.

i believe in serendipity. i wasn't looking and this great guy plopped right into my lap. he really is amazing and does so much for us. he works really hard, communicates well, loves completely and totally and always has my back. seriously, what a catch. i literally could go on and on, but i'll save you from the "gag-fest" of love. 

let's get real, sometimes we have full on arguments about the dumbest stuff. my favorite? the time i was legit mad at him for not chasing me when i left after he essentially dared me to leave. seriously, kiranda? in any case, i realize that, while he has his faults{he's easily distracted and will interrupt a story in a heartbeat...grr}, i'm definitely no picnic to be with and around either. 

which brings me to...


refrigerator clutter.
twice a month {for grocery runs}, i empty out my refrigerator and organize everything according to sections and how often it's used. it's awesome. i also clean it out to minimize messes from spills. well, in between those two weeks, i can't really be bothered with it. and since i'm not the only person opening and grabbing things from there, things don't always get put back in an orderly fashion. often times, my fridge is a cluttered mess. and when i bring food or groceries over to John's house, he worries that his fridge will end up just as messy as mine. lol well, really...he shouldn't worry. i'm an organizing freak. we're both virgos...i think we're going to balance each other out very well. 

shower etiquette.
i'm a natural. meaning....i'm constantly doing something with my hair. constantly co-washing it. constantly styling it. constantly trying new styles, products, techniques, etc. my hair is also very very VERY curly. hair-typing says it's a 4a with 3c tendencies. {holy rabbit hole...} well i wash and detangle in the shower. and there's lots of shedding curls. and...i just leave them there. i don't really take care to grab the hair and toss it in the trash or toilet. so it looks like a bunch of curly cues {or pubic hairs} chillaxing in the shower. lol it really is un-sightly. 

shower etiquette pt 2.
ohandalso? i have a tendency to get water OUTSIDE of the shower curtain...like erry-day. whoops. :/

attack of the talons.
i have really sharp toenails and i don't really get pedicures often. so when we snuggle in bed at night, i scratch him, like ALL. the time. he says their like perma-strong. like velociraptor talons or something. lol

the car and the cell phone.
often times, i'll get a phone call or make a phone call when we're in the car. and i have every intention of making it a quick conversation. but...i was blessed with the gift of gab so i have a hard time shutting myself up and getting off the phone. and my poor man, he wants to chat with me or listen to music. instead, he's forced to listen to me go oooooon and ooooooon as i tend to do. poor guy.

of course, both of us know that these things are minor and not really important. in fact, it took him a little while to compile this list. lol i'm just glad this man loves me despite all of my stupid, ridiculous flaws. because for some people, these are deal breakers. and this post is helpful for me because whenever i want to yell at him or get "all in my feelings" over him doing something i don't particularly like, i'll look back on this post and remember, "ah....well he DOES put up with me."
