last night around 3AM, husband elbowed me in the mouth while we were sleeping…

and almost 24 hours later my mouth is just now reaching its full capacity of soreness. 

oh, and my gums are purple and blue.

it’s a good thing i love this man.

    My boo does this almost on a weekly basis. I have to fall asleep after him and put his arms down JUST IN CASE!! YOU’RE SO ADORABLE!

    I kicked my husband once while we were sleeping and now he puts pillows in-between us. I get mad but I kick and understand so I guess this is OK.

    At least he didn’t knock any teeth out!

    My advice: get a puppy. Yes, they are a lot of work but SO worth it.

    My husband has a bad case of the “jimmy arms” (yes, I am quoting from Seinfeld). It used to drive me nuts when we were dating but after eight years of marriage I find it reassuring. Weird.

    Oh la la that photo is something! You look good with and without bangs! What?

    I vote no for the puppy. Mine keeps me up all night and while I love her, I love sleep more.

  11. ouch! Hope your mouth feels better! Love the photo!

    What kind of puppy are you thinking of? I love corgies and little scottie dogs. I used to have a jack russell terrier and she was sooooo awesome!! I hope your mouth feels better too! :)

    oh no no no no no to puppies. yes to dogs. no to puppies! it’s heart-breaking to raise a puppy. everything makes them cry.

    but if you adopt a dog, there’s less crying. for you and the dog.

    Hi, what does Taza mean exactly? I’ve been dying to know but always forget to ask and will probably forget to ask again if you do not reply so please address!! LOL I’m very curious.

    I think taza means teacup in spanish doesn’t it?

    goodness this happened to me all the time! Although sometimes he’d miss my mouth and knock my forehead. Before we got our boat for a bed i’d continually be sporting bruises on my face. :)

    once my husband dumped a cup of water on my face in the middle of the night…accidentally. So funny, though it is strange to be woken up in the middle of the night with water in the face.

    Hope the swelling goes down soon…ouch.

    ha! funny story. i’ve been punched a couple times in two years of marriage, but once my husband flat out kicked me with all his strength [he said later he was dreaming of sliding into home base during a baseball game]. we wives endure a lot for the men we love! feel better soon.

    p.s. ive been your blog stalker for a while but never commented :) guess i’m outed now.

    Don’t get a puppy! What you really want is a baby and a puppy will only hold you over for so long and then when you really do get the baby you will neglect the puppy and then feel bad about it. Classic.

    get a puppy! Yes having a puppy is difficult (way harder than you think it’s going to be even when you think it’s going to be harder than you think), but puppies grow into dogs and dogs are really something special. And puppies are so cute it helps you through the difficult parts.

    NO PUPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you will regret it and neglect it once you have a baby, please don’t get one!!!!

  25. Ouch! So sorry. Dan bit me once about a year ago in his sleep. That was not fun.

  26. You two are so adorable!! I love your blog and hope that when I get married our relationship will be as fun and cute as yours! :) Good luck on getting a puppy!
