Thankfully, Patrick doesn't read my blog

I'm writing about my backup husband. Patrick and I have had this conversation numerous times - who would we marry in case things don't work out between us? For anyone who thinks we're not taking our marriage seriously, I say this:'re no fun! Get  a sense of humor.

We've even gone as far as breaking it down into the following categories: Backup boyfriend/girlfriend, backup husband/wife, and backup the-person-I'd-have-a-one-night-stand-with-if-I-ever-did-that-sort-of-thing. Seriously, our dinner conversations are awesome.

I know who his backups are and he knows mine, and we often tease each other about our choices. His pretty much stay the same, while mine tend to fluctuate a bit more. I'm just moody like that.

So my new backup husband (although he really fits into all of the above categories) is William Elliott Whitmore. He's a blues/folk musician and has the most amazing voice. I discovered him about two years ago and I just fell in love with his music, his voice, his lyrics. He's an amazing writer...a genius writer, and I just love that.

Then I saw his picture, and yowza...I fell in love. I want to live on his farm with him and have his babies. Is that so wrong? I don't care if he doesn't have electricity or indoor plumbing:





Would you really care about peeing in an outhouse? I think not. And the best part? He lives in Iowa! Boo-yah!

I had no idea you were a beard-and-tats kind of gal.

On him, I like the beard and tats. Although, on him, I'd probably like an extra ear in the middle of his forehead.

Not that I'm obsessed or anything, but I read an interview he gave and his favorite tattoo is the one he has of the Iowa state bird. Love him!

An extra ear in the middle of his forehead = love truly is blind.

Love is blind and love would make me totally overlook walking through 3 feet of snow to pee in an outhouse.

Jason said...

Wow, I've never had a girl say to me, "I love you so much, I'd walked through 3 feet of snow to pee in an outhouse." My life suddenly feels empty.

Mystery finally solved! You made me laugh harder than I've laughed in a long time. :)

There is something thrilling about a man with a tattoo in a white t-shirt.

Now I'm left wondering who Patrick's are? Tony chose Gwen Stefani. What man alive wouldn't?
