♥ AW: SHENANIGANS HITS 5 K ♥

Dearest P-dub,


I’ve dreamt about this moment. I’ve had nightmares about this moment. I’ve posted like a mad woman to get to this moment. And now that it’s here, I have no freakin’ clue what to say. How do I live up to the hype that I somehow created? I’m not sure I can do it. I have big shoes to fill and I have rather small feet.


But I’m here and I have to say something to commemorate this momentous occasion. It’s momentous because this took time and dedication. Neither of which I normally have. If something takes a long time, I avoid it. If something takes dedication, I overlook it. This isn’t a commitment issue though. I have a lot of tattoos, so I’m clearly not afraid of commitment. ((; Oh, and I got married too, so that seconds that. I think it’s more of a “I’m a lazy a$$” issue.


I guess I’ll go with something short and sweet. I love PW. Everything about it. I’m addicted to PW. That’s why I am still here after my wedding. I can’t let go. I love the support, the people, the ideas, the camaraderie, and the love that I feel every time I sign on. PW has impacted my life in an indescribable way and I can only hope that I have been a part of that same impact for others.


And since I’m not a sappy person, I will now pass the buck to my DH, Matt. I apologize in advance for whatever he says or doesn’t say and any spelling/ grammar errors you find. I did not edit his shpill, nor did I read it before hand. This is all him… in the raw.


So I have to write a little something because my wife hit 5000 posts...
Our conversation went like this.
Wife: You have to write something for PW
Me: Hmmm Ok? Wife: I hit 5000 posts, it's a big deal.
Me: No problem...Sooo what should I say?
Wife: Say what you want.
Me: So I can tell everyone what a pain in the tush you are?
Wife: If you want to sleep in the spare bedroom!
Me: Ok give me some ideas.
Wife: Just don't write how much you love me and how many great ideas we got off PW.


To be honest, completely honest, I don't care for PW. Ya I said it crucify me it's cool. PW is like crack for my Wife. Shandi can't get enough. For example did you all know on our honeymoon I had a conversation with myself for close to 10 minutes while Shandi was providing you with a day after recap? Did you know those one sided conversations continue to happen? But it's cool, I mean the fact that she is so helpful to others makes it worth it. Besides when the Redsox are playing I can completely use selective hearing! I'm not going to tell you how beautiful and amazing Shandi is, I wouldn't have married her if she wasn't! There are things that you PW'ers will never know about her from pictures or posts. They are things you can't do without in a relationship. I consider myself to have pretty high testosterone levels, and in my opinion the art of being a man has been lost in our generation. So you can imagine I'm pretty opinionated in my views and my personality. I've never been one to show much emotion or carry on too much in a conversation. My Wife has a uncanny ability to squeeze emotion out of me like water out of a rag. Shandi has me so interested in our life I can't have enough conversation with her. Does that make me less of a man? No it makes me a better man a more refined man... her man. For those of you who helped to make our wedding even more special, thank you.


Back to me:


I ♥ you ladies of PW. My awesome E-friends. The ones who get me through my days & nights.


Cheers you ladies!


♥ Shandi [&&&& Matt]

O.M.G.! I just read DH's post after I posted this. Holy crap. He's in trouble.


And P.S.  Our conversation went NOTHING like that!


This is how it went:


Me: FYI, I have 296 posts to go until I hit 5K posts on PW. When I hit 5K you’re supposed to make your PW debut. That’s where you tell everyone how cool I am and how much I’ve given your life more meaning and how you also love PW. You can leave out the parts where I piss you off or leave messes around the house. That’s not relevant here. ((:


So start preparing your speech so I can post it when I make my post.


Love you!


 


DH:  Ohhhh really?!!!!


 


Me: I’m not quite sure you’re understanding the importance of this post. I’m legendary. You have big shoes to fill.


 


DH:  legendary huh? So I can talk trash about you?


 


Me: If you like sleeping in the guest room, then by all means say what you want. Did I mention the guest room is now decorated in Yankee memorabilia?

We love you. Don't ever think about leaving ;-)

Congrats Shandi! I have a feeling my FI is going to have a similar 5k post experience..."To be honest, completely honest, I don't care for PW. Ya I said it crucify me it's cool. PW is like crack for my Wife." Sounds just like Will.

You did it!  The letter from your husband was fantastic.  I think my FI feels the same way about PW sometimes.


Congratulations!

Ya, when I told DH about this 5k post tradition the first thing he could think to say was how "PW stole my wife", lol. They're just jealous. ;)

Lauren, my love, I would never question you. ((; 


edit: I think calling you "my love" is questionable and possibly inappropriate?? lol.
