Share the Love

Meet A Wife Mondays Lipgloss and BinkyDrumroll, please! It’s Meet A Wife Monday!

Now as you know, 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 fab wife and mommy Mimi from Lipgloss and Binky and her man!

The Wife: Mimi, 32
 
The Man: A.D., 32
 
But You Can Call Them: The Scarletts
 
How She Snagged Him: “My sense of humor, dark skin, and long hair…Those are his words!”
 
Married Since: 09.25.05
 
The Pets: Malachi and PJ a.k.a. The Fish
 
The Kids: Lil Man 5, Lil Mama 1
 
Place They Call Home: “A burb reaaaallll close to Atlanta.”
 
How She Pays the Bills: “Reformed workaholic turned SAHM/Photographer/Dream Chaser…not sure any of that pays the bills.” 
 
How He Pays the Bills: “Oversees and calls the shots of  some major happenings at a well known area hospital.”
 
What Makes Her Man Hot: “He doesn’t let the suit and tie define him…when he gets home its jeans and Jordans. He is very affectionate with us, and he cuts the grass in a tank top. I know you said three but I have one more…His determination — he overcame a ton in his life to get where he is today, yet he never forgets where he came from. {Insert grin or grimace} dependent on the situation! 
 
A Wife Highlight: “Sometimes we get so caught up in our struggles now when one of us will say, remember when we had to sleep on the floor on those two twin mattresses pushed together and drove that raggedy Caprice with no air conditioning. We’ll laugh, it always gives us perspective at how far we’ve come in 5 short years.”
 
A Wife Gripe: “The constant banter of ESPN. I go to sleep and wake up to it.”
 
Marriage Mantra: “Want your man to stand up and take care of the family, let him be the man. If he’s not capable, support him, not to be confused with nagging. He will get there. Be patient. I know.”
 
The 2-Year Plan: “No more children! We will be purchasing a bigger home, a few rental properties and making our separate entrepreneurial visions a reality…oh and raising our children to be upstanding and mannerable citizens.”
 
Wifey Wisdom: “Learn to communicate, and communicate well. Make your spouse your friend. There will be times when love isn’t enough, its then that you turn to your friendship to get through.”
