13 (Plus) Things about My Husband and Me


This is from one of those things that goes around on Facebook. With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought I would use it for a Thursday Thirteen. This is dedicated to my one and only true love, Doug! Happy Valentine's Day, honey!

That was soooo fun reading, especially Doug's middle. And yes you are in trouble. Lucky you've been married for 30 years...he will go easy on you.

I love Giuseppi's. Bob and I would walk there on Friday nights for supper when we lived on Dresden.

How did I go for that many years and not know "Mr. Swanson's" middle name was...well, what it is?! He must be great at keeping secrets! High school kids can be merciless!

I enjoyed this! I have also been married 30 years and we have 3 children. The E in my husband's middle name is for Earl. My dad's first name was Wilmer. No wonder he went by Bill! His sister's middle name is Elmyra!! Thank the Lord I wasn't named after her.
