A lot of things inspire me to want to keep my marriage healthy and happy. One of them is meeting other wives who are making it work every day, and loving it! I knew quite a few before I said “I do”, and since Man Wife and Dog Blog was born I’ve met so many more. They’re all so fabulous I want you to meet them too. This week, meet navy wife blogger Shannon from A Day In The Life Of An Officer’s Wife!
The Wife: Shannon, 27
The Man: Matt, 28
But You Can Call Them: The Clutes
How She Snagged Him: “He sat down at my table in a bar and I was not too happy about it. I got an attitude and he took it as a challenge. He eventually convinced me he wasn’t a bad guy, so I rewarded him with kisses.”
Married Since: 10.23.08
Place They Call Home: “A nice little house in San Diego, CA”
How She Pays the Bills: Financial Analyst
How He Pays the Bills: Naval Officer
What Makes Her Man Hot: “His amazing voice (he sang to me at our wedding), his fabulous cuddling skills, and the way he looks in his navy uniform (I just get weak in the knees)!”
Wife Highlight: “As newlyweds we drove cross country when we moved from the east coast to California. We spent 10-12 hours a day in the car together talking about life, our dreams, and everything in between. It was the best trip ever!”
Wife Gripe: “He always puts his sweaty gym clothes in the hamper causing everything else in there to smell gross! I have to remind him to lay it out to dry so I don’t have to do laundry everyday just to keep the smell away. ”
The 2-Year Plan: “In two years we will be in Monterey where Matt will be getting his MBA and I will hopefully be a stay at home Mom to our first baby and fur child Harley!”
Wifey Wisdom: “Compromise. You may not always get your way, but it’s so rewarding to see your hubby happy. (You need to let him win sometimes ladies! It’s good for his ego!)”
