. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Someone to Laugh at

July 1, 2012

Someone to Laugh at

 shoes ($6), tee ($8) and skirt ($9): Target


I'm making it a new goal of mine to laugh at my husband more often. 
You may think this sounds mean, but it was pretty much requested. 

Now I do think Chris is funny, but sometimes, ok most of the time, I don't laugh at him. 
I find myself thinking (while he is doing something that he is hoping gets a laugh) 

"Would someone else be laughing at him if they were seeing this?" 

And the answer is probably yes.  

But after seven years of marriage, I guess I am not quite as amused anymore.  
But it is time to change that. 

So next time he is making up his own rap songs in the car, or comes into the kitchen making ridiculous (slightly annoying) sounds and noises, or treating Molly like she's a human, or making up a joke that he thinks is so funny he can barely get the joke out . . . 

I am going to do my best to throw out a completely amused, impressed and genuine laugh. 





P.S.  Want to follow me on instagram?

Sometimes I feel like a loser, and continually scroll through my instagram feed without seeing any new pictures. Which only means I need more people to follow, so leave me your name so I can follow you back.

Cutest outfit ever! And, my Katie agrees. She wants to know where you got your bracelets...she wants them bad!!! Okay, and talking to your dog like it is human??? We NEVER do that. (I kid) Oh, and I have had instagram since I got my phone, one of my first apps and I think I have like two pics on it taken while at Katie's orientation like 2 weeks ago!

Love the outfit and the husband inspiration. I think I need to laugh at mine more also instead of rolling my eyes at his jokes, oops!
I'm bybreenah on Instagram, but it doesn't get updated very often considering the iPhone I use isn't a Phone any more and is on the busted side, haha!

Such a cute outfit, the neon is so fun! Nate always makes me laugh, but then sometimes it gets to the point where I have to tell him to stop b/c you can see the "wheels" in his brain going so he can think up something else ridiculous to say! Love husbands.

Alana Christine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

bahahaha. This is great! I bet he'll appreciate that! Love the outfit!

Awww...I'm sure Chris is absolutely hilarious! Love that neon shirt...I went out and bought it after I saw you wearing it, because clearly I need a neon tee in EVERY shade of neon :)

After three years of marriage I don't laugh as often at my husband. I need to do that more too. I really love that neon t-shirt. So cute!

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'll have to keep an eye on myself and make sure I'm still laughing at Angel a couple years down the road. In reality, guys in general (or at least the ones I know) tend to be so funny and strange that I have no problem laughing at them.

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha aww this is kinda a cute and flirty post! I like that you still want to make your husband feel good!

and I LOVE the neon and stripes on you - perfect weekend outfit!

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Good luck with the laughter :) I'm sure your husband will be grateful! You look adorable - love the colorful top.

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, sometimes my hubby complains about this too! I guess it's what happens after you've been with someone for a while, oops. I LOVE your cute neon tee!

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I need to start doing this more too. I've been with my husband for 8 years now, and the things I used to laugh at, I find myself rolling my eyes at now. I think he would feel better if I laughed instead at his antics. Thanks for the reminder :-)

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, I think I'm actually the ONLY person who finds my husband to be funny. I try not to laugh at him sometimes because I feel I am only enabling his silly behavior, but hey, at least he makes me laugh right!? :)

Following you on instagram!

Loving the neon tee!!! I'm definitely the same way about my husbands jokes too. Following you on instagram :) @AKeeleyWhite

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha...geez that sounds exactly like my hubby. On any given day you hear me say at least twenty times a day "Obviously, your in need of some attention right now so instead of dancing around with a crock pot on your head why don't you just tell me you want attention?" LOL...they're like children.

I completely get this post!!
My husband and I have been together for 6 years.
I completely understand all of this.
He's a funny man, but after a while he's not so funny to me anymore.
Great post!!

Katie @ My Darling Days said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Lovin your neon and stripes! I bought that same skirt but ended up returning it cuz I thought it looked funny on my hips. Looks wonderful on you though! :)
