So let's flirt a bit

circa 2000. Can you believe we thought poses like this were da bomb diggidy?
what exactly are we doing here?

When Rowdy and I were engaged and separated for like, 1 1/2 whole months, we wrote each other letters. And since email was our lifeline at that time, we used that method. 10 years later we STILL have them in Rowdy's hotmail account. I haven't read them in YEARS, but I decided to recently.

It was quite the lovey-mushy experience and I admit that I laughed a bit while reading some of them. But then I felt sad because I didn't remember the last time that I was so email-mushy with my man. In comes my new goal to be more suave via email, text, and verbal communication. Because his hunkiness deserves such flirtation from me.

Note to self before I move on: If you haven't gotten the memo, I am a really funny person. Or at least I think I am, and if I'm not, then that concept is funny in itself, which in turn makes me funny. Works out well, I think.

With this funny persona I've been say'n some awesome flirty things to him lately, and for your benefit, and it's totally for YOUR benefit, I have decided to create the Top 10 mushy things to say to your man when you have been married for 10 years.

Better yet, I am going to give you exact examples from my letters written 10 years ago to compare. A THEN and NOW, if you will. There is a distinct difference, you see. Depending on what season you happen to be in your marriage, these will effect your Love-AR differently. For instance, you just can't go say'n 10 year things when you've been married for 3. It just doesn't work... and versa;) **disclaimer: these are what "I" wrote or said/say to my man. NOT the other way around.**

Oh you're just itch'n in your seat, aren't you? Here goes. Use them wisely.

Possible side effects are nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations, and if you use them in the wrong marriage season with your own love-ar, having to sleep on the couch.

(remember that these were said in a complete new-love sincere don't go knock'n me too hard;)
1. We were made for each other.
2. You complete me.
3. You are my wings. (this one kills me)
4. You are a dream come true.
5. You take my breath away.
6. Adam Sandler movie? sounds like a perfect night.
7. You're the cream in my oreo.
8. You're my hero.
9. I love the way your manly scent lingers in the hallway. (No, I didn't say that. ha! But you can imagine what it would be like if I did;)
10. I love you.

(remember that these are said in the coolest-seductive-flirty way)
1. I'll be YOUR swagger-wagon.
4. Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?
5. I love that you're my baby daddy.
6. The kids are asleep.
7. Yo baby, what's up?
8. I took the dog out for you.
9. Guess what? I shaved my legs today.
10. I love you.

So, now that you are officially educated...go get your groove on with some of your new mushy moves. And I don't want to hear about the end result. This is a PG blog, people.

LOL I love it! I'd never thought about it, but my husband and I definitely communicate differently now than five years ago.

I loved this post! I totally use some of those lines, on a consistent basis (the ten year ones, NOT the fresh love ones. Wow. It was so fun though, right? No wonder my mother was worried. "he said what?" "you really think he's perfect? He doesn't even have a job."-I don't know if I can really take credit for seeing Ryan's potential, or just being blind to his faults, but in any case, really glad it worked out. :) And, I don't know if you've noticed this with Rowdy, but the success rate with "I shaved my legs today" isn't all that high. I guess there are sexier things I could say than confessing to Ryan that I don't shave my legs very often, but I did, so, pay attention! Sadly, he doesn't even look up from what he's doing with that one, but I continue to use it. Hm. this is a good wake up call for me Carrie, thank you.

My texts to my husband sound a lot like those later ones, too. The ones that would be appropriate to share with other people, anyway.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I joke that my husband was born without his romantic bone.

That's all I'm sayin'. :D
