This Is Us

People often comment that Mark and I are pretty much opposites, and we really are in most ways. If he likes a certain piece of furniture, you can be nearly 100% sure that I will not only dislike it, I will hate it. If I love a picture or some decorative item for our home, you can almost guess that he won't. When we go shopping for large items, it's high-stress. Our house is pretty much furnished in what I like to call 'early compromise' furniture. Neither of us ever gets what we love -- we end up with what we can tolerate.

The only things we both really like are each other and our family. Apparently it's enough.

He's pretty spectacular -- and the cartoon really is us.

There's my smile for today.

Still smiling. I can totally relate. We are the same way. In an odd way...this post is encouraging. We can survive, right? lol...oh well, at least we love each other!

So funny! And I agree with Andrea, your house is beautiful ;)

Men... Sheesh! (kidding Mark... Jan loves you, and it's all about compromise!) Still though, it's so funny. I was in the same boat recently... and he didn't even realize it. All over a stupid misunderstanding! haha!

Ashley said...

i'm glad that you two like the most important things in life; otherwise, i'd be worried. ;)

Melissa said...

Oh man, that could be a conversation my hubby and I have!!

Stina said...

That was funny. Sometimes I feel like that is my husband and me, too. Usually I get my way but there have been many a compromise made on both sides. Husbands are part of the spices of life. They make things more interesting and a lot more fun. :)
