Random Wedneday {all about JOE!}


It's my hub-sters bday today.  The big 3-4.  {When did we both get so old?} In keeping with the theme of the day being ALL ABOUT JOE {smile}....I'm doing my Random Wednesday today.....JOE STYLE.  Random.....funny facts about my better half.  Strap on your seatbelts! 


  1. *While giving birth to Grant....I was literally in the middle of pushing when Joe told the nurse to hang on just a minute....he had to go to the bathroom.  And we’re not talking number 1.  He actually LEFT the room and went DOWN the hall because he had to go number 2 and it couldn’t wait.  Seriously. I held pushing Grant out....just so he could go number 2.  Lets just say he’s lucky he made it back in time. 

  2. *Joe prides himself in being a ‘comic genius’.  Sometimes I catch him practicing  jokes in front of the mirror.  He gets embarrassed when I catch him but according to him...”the joke is all in the delivery”.  I guess that’s why so many people find him funny.  Practice makes perfect :)

  3. *He eats ANYTHING.  And I mean ANYTHING.  Think.....cheeseburger from QT.  Or......nasty day old hot dog from a random gas station.  He’s had it all.  (I will give him credit though for discovering the QT taquito.  Those really aren’t so bad).

    * He can spot a 'traveling gypsy' out of nowhere.  

    * He washes his cups BEFORE he uses them.  Even if it's at OUR HOUSE and they've JUST been cleaned in the dishwasher.

    * He's obsessed with styrofoam cups.

    * He idolizes Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.  Can you blame him?

    * Until we went on our Alaskan cruise...he pronounced the city Juneau --- as JUNE-A-OO.  

    * He didn't kiss a girl until  he was 22.  {I like to tease him about it but I'm actually quite proud!}

    * He has a weird crush on Sarah Palin.  Which is gross.  And wrong.  Especially because we're liberal.

  4. *He’s not afraid to crack a semi-vulgar joke at any given time in front of ANYONE.  In fact, he loves shock value. He’ll do whatever it takes to make someone blush.

  5. *He can take a nap at 7:00 at night and wake up at 10pm.  Work for another 4 hours and go back to bed.  He’s a night owl.  

  6. *He loves Will Ferrell as much as I do.  And Zach Galifanakis.

  7. *He’s always up for eating out.  I love him for that.  Rarely does he make me feel bad about not wanting to cook...which seems to be more often then not!

  8. *He cleans the toilets when they’re so nasty we can’t even stand to look at them anymore.  And when I say clean, he scrubs.  

  9. *He doesn’t complain when I hire the cleaning lady.  He actually enjoys her as much as I do. (Thank goodness!)

    * He always knows when I'm in need of a soda.

    * He likes Disneyland {or pretends to} as much as me!  

    *  He treats my family like gold.

    *  He treats his family like gold.

    * He treats our family like gold.


  10. *He would do ANYTHING to help ANYONE out. He is CONSTANTLY thinking of others.  Many a times, he has dropped what he was doing and gone to help a family member, a church friend or a neighbor and has put his work on hold.

    * He's a super hard worker.  Often times people thinks he's 'got it easy' working from home but he puts in A LOT of hours earning money for our family.  Granted...most of the time it's in his pjs but...can you blame him? 

    * Since he works at home...he likes to tell people that 'sexual harrassment' is actually encouraged at his work place. OH BOY!

What more could I ask for in a husband?  Good looks. Funny sense of humor.  Kind. Compassionate.  Understanding. I could go on and on but it would probably raise the barf factor for the rest of you reading so I’ll leave it at that.  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE!!!

Loves.

  3. A few of those are Coombs traits.... The #2 when you had Grant... My family likes to call it the Coombs Curse. When you gotta go you gotta go. Many a time I have heard my Dad race into the house and SPRINT to the bathroom. It's in the genes:) Happy Birthday Joe!
