Spill About Your L-O-V-E: The Girl In The Red Shoes

Today Julie from The Girl In The Red Shoes will be telling you about her relationship with her husband.  They recently welcomed a sweet baby boy, Hudson, into their lives, and Julie is one fab mama.  Take it away, J!

{1} Describe your dating life prior to finding your husband. 
I met my husband when I was 22 years old. My dating life prior to meeting him was pretty minimal. I had a few boyfriends in high school and college but I was usually the single girl. At the time I remember feeling like I would never meet the man I was supposed to marry. I wish I could go back and give myself a swift kick in the booty and tell little 18 year old me to just enjoy being young and spending time with friends! The right boy will come around one day and he will make it clear he likes you and won't play games.

{2} Describe your husband in one word.  How would he describe you in one word?
Describing my husband in only one word is tough!! But if I had to choose one, I'd say genuine. I'm sure if he had to pick just one word to describe me he'd say sassy. Which is really my nice/cuter way of saying cranky. 

{3} You had a really silly fight.  Embarrassing silly.  What was it about?
Have you ever seen the movie The Break-Up? We've totally had the "I want you to want to do the dishes" fight. I mean, who wants to do the dishes? Most of our fights are so stupid and usually start with me being a sort of control freak. 

{4} In three sentences (and only three!), describe where you both hope to be in 5 years.
 In five years I hope we are blessed enough to have grown our family by another baby...or two. I hope my husband is in a job that he enjoys and feels like he is making a difference. I hope that we've soaked up every minute of our baby's sweet smile laughed so hard we've cried.

{5} Tell us something about your husband we wouldn't know from reading your blog.
Something you wouldn't know about my husband by reading my blog is that he is the master of making up goofy stories and songs. Lately he has been singing about "peas on your face, and peas in your poop" with our son Hudson. It is hilarious. 

{6} What's one thing you never thought you'd do in front of your husband, but you did?
Oh my gosh, this is embarrassing. I swore I would NEVER pee in front of my husband. I believed some things should remain private, and going to the bathroom is definitely one of them. But yeah....I've totally peed in front of him. Like every day. Judge away.


  1. I can totally relate to the I you to want to do the dishes fight.

  2. Ha, I love it. I wouldn't mind tinkling in front of Cameron, but he is disgusted by the thought of it. haha! That's as far as I would take it though. Glad we got to hear about your hubby's silly side. :)

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS IDEA!!! And Julie of course :) so cute!

  4. Oh Julie, you are too funny! My husband makes up songs about our dog and they're the best and always put a smile on my face!

  5. jon is definitely genuine. and definitely hilarious. and youre so totally sassy. . . its part of your charm!

  6. We sing silly songs to O too! Usually something to the tune of "Sugar, sugar"!

    And I really think that after him watching me go through labor almost all privacy has gone out the window!

    HA! Love this post!

  7. Such a cute series!! Love Julie and getting to learn more about her and her hubby!!

  8. What a great idea for a series! I love Julie's blog, so it was really fun to learn more about her and to hear about things you probably wouldn't normally share on your own blog! ;)

  9. my husband would TOTALLY say sassy, too!! and i agree... a nice way to say "cranky" ;) and i think we've all had the dishes fight at some point or another... right??

    this is such a fun guest post idea... im glad julie has introduced me to your blog!

  10. Love this!!! I was the same way about the bathroom and now it happens occasionally haha! My husban also makes silly songs!

  11. This is great! My husband sings weird songs as well...except we don't have any children yet so he just sings them to me!
