Speaking Our Own Language

Mary: “Be honest, does my hair look like a bouffant right now?”
Justin: “You mean, like Phoebe Bouffant?”
Mary: “Um, that’s Phoebe Buffay (boo-fay)”
Justin: “Oh, see I always thought it was Buffet (buh-fet)”
Mary: “What, like Jimmy?”
Justin: “I was thinking Warren”
Mary: (long pause and blank stare) “Ok, well does my hair look alright?”

And thus, it begins again.

Yea, like most couples out there, Justin & I speak our own little language that only we know the translation to. And that secret language is coming in especially handy today as we pack to leave for our wedding up in Boston. “Hey J, could you get the thing with the thing, you know the one that’s hanging next to that other thing in the closet. Yea, thanks.” And somehow he knows exactly what I’m talking about. See it’s not everyone who can figure out what I’m thinking. And not just anyone who would not only tolerate, but indulge…even one-up…my obsession with witty banter. Banter so witty that you should really stretch first before engaging in it, lest you get side stitches from just how hilarious we really are. But see that’s what makes us, us.

Well that and that he always loves me unconditionally… bouffant and all.

So we’re off today for the wedding of Leslie & Brian up outside of Boston, but here’s a sneak peak of who’s on deck next for the blog: the absolutely stunning Miryha & Matt!!

***Also, we are super excited to announce the winner of our “Un-ordinary Life” contest, Miss Kricia Morris for her entry: my Soul-Satisfying life. “I love my {soul-satisfying} life. You know, the life that tells you that you’re on the right path, that you’re doing the right thing, and that despite the trials and tribulations along the way, it’s a life that you can be proud of. Blessed from. Humbled by. That’s my kind of life.” That just made me feel warm & fuzzy inside. So she will receive a $50 gift card to Starbucks….which is guaranteed to make her feel all warm & fuzzy inside too!

    I love a couple’s own language … I do a lot of grunting and pointing. Each grunt has its OWN meaning ….. just ask my husband!
