Talks with Tom #22

I feel like it has been awhile since I have shared Tom’s delightful conversations. So here are just a few nuggets for your Monday morning perusing.

Tom and I always are debating about traveling. We both go back and forth about vacations and trips home and our thoughts and feelings on the matter.

Tom-I hate traveling. There is only one trip I want to take.

Me-The island? (This is a place in the Missouri Ozarks that Tom used to go a lot as a kid.)

Tom-Well yea. And the trip is called the apocalypse. And we are never coming back.

Me-Tom, that is called moving.

Last week, a couple people actually noticed my little baby bump. Naturally, I came home really excited that I am not just arbitrarily not fitting in my pants. And this was my dear sweet husband’s response when I told him.

Tom-Pregnancy is the only time in a woman’s life that they are excited about being fat.

Thanks babe.

Tom was out in the field for most of last week for a pretty large brigade mission (I will be sharing about this next week.) He always comes home grimy and un-bathed from 3 days of wearing the same clothes in the wilderness. It’s like a big man camping trip.

Tom-Sometimes, while out in the field doing army stuff, you begin to feel like a tough guy. Nothing puts that in perspective like walking into a spider web.

Fun fact, I learned this about Tom on our second date at the zoo. I have to say it made me like him more knowing that he wasn’t all tough guy all the time. Also, it was pretty hilarious watching him freak out about a spider web.

  1. Ooooof haha ouch with that comment about the bump! I’ve had the WORST time dealing with my changing body even though I don’t have a bump yet. I’ve been SO terrified of gaining weight and just getting huge that it’s overshadowed a lot of the joy of being pregnant, unfortunately. I hope I get used to the idea soon!

    • Well every woman is different with their pregnancies and how they wear it. I will say that I feel much better about my shape now that people can TELL that I am pregnant.

  2. haha, I love it! I wish I could remember all of those types of conversations with my husband. They’re hilarious…or maybe they’re only hilarious to me haha

    • haha yea there a lot of convos that I keep to ourselves because other people just wouldn’t understand. I have to write down the ones I want to share otherwise I would forget.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
