polygamy is not for us...

 So Eric and I have been watching Sister Wives on netflix the past couple days. I know, we're crazy, but it's so fascinating to watch this show and see how these people live. The idea of Polygamy just blows my mind... I'm definitely too jealous for that! I thought all man kind in general were too jealous for that, but whatevs :)
Anyway, while watching the show I told Eric:

me: Eric, I only want you. And you better only want me.
eric: Don't worry babe! You've got enough personalities that I couldn't possibly handle another wife.
...
...
...

Well then... that's reassuring.
Luckily for him... he's cute.  And I know he loves me :)

P.S. Just in case there's some confusion... Fundamentalist Mormons and members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormons) are most definitely not the same religion :)

LOL! His comment was hilarious and too cute.

Pamela said...

Hahaha! What he said, cracked me up! That is too funny. I know, I can't help but watch that crazy show too!!

Erin said...

Ha ha this made me smile :)

Love his comment. And I watch this show too. It sucks me in even though it drives me nuts. When I worked at a salon out here people would ask me if Mike had more than one wife because they saw that mormons are polygamists from the show sister wives...needless to say it made me angry!!

We would SO be friends in "real life"! :) I LOVE Sisters Wives! I find it beyond fascinating and although I could NEVER imagine that lifestyle (I'm also too jealous for that! ;)) they just seem like such nice, normal people!

Eric's comment cracked me up. I'm sure my husband would say the EXACT same thing about me! ;)

Your Hubs is funny!

I'll admit, I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to other religions, but I didn't know there were variations. Good to know!

Learn something new everyday!

Have a good Tuesday!

Faith said...

haha, hilarious what your hubby said! i watched one episode of sister wives and i was a bit freaked out ... but i do have to admit that it is kinda interesting to see how others live such different lives.

i don't know how they do it.

Trent said...

haha Trent said the same exact thing to me when I told him once that he wasn't allowed to marry other women. I think it's hilarious you guys are watching that!

ps, this is Natalie....

Heather said...

Bahaha, my boyfriend has the same comment about me as your hubby does you! He says he can't handle one much less too...which is a good thing!

I've watched a part of that show but I just can't handle it...I want to scream at them.

Sean Marie said...

Ahaha! My husband has said the same thing to me. But they know they love us crazies. ;-)

Jessie Szmanda said...

This is great! We watch that show too! :)

Laura said...

ha ha, that is too funny!!

Seth + Carlie said...

haha! I told Seth the same thing after I saw that show. I feel bad for those women, and wonder why they don't think they deserve a man that loves just them, not a man that is searching for new love at every corner. That show is crazy to me! Cute pic of you two btw.

Amy said...

LOL, Eric is funny. And yes, polygamy is definitely not for me either. I'd be the revenge seeking sister wife, wielding the scissors at 2 am and cutting off a lop of hair. Hahahaha.

Ruby Girl said...

you are SUCH a cute couple! glad it's going to be just the two of you forever :) yah polygamy is a bit strange to say the least <3 www.rubygirlblog.com

Firstly, your hubs is hysterical. That's so something my hubby would say. But aint it the truth? haha I know I have quite enough crazy to go around and keep my man busy. Secondly, I'm not mormon, and I have seen that show, but I would NEVER have thought all mormons were that way! If people honestly think that, then they are ignorant and uneducated about that topic. So don't sweat the weirdos that assume things. We aren't all like that just like you aren't all polygamists. Love ya girl!

Jamie said...

So glad we aren't polygamists. SO glad. And I love that show too. I considered giving up cable the other day then thought, what would I do without my trashy tv? and decided to keep it.

Emma Frances said...

Baha! I just started watching this show too! I'm not sure why it's so addicting! I love what your husband said. So funny! I am so glad we aren't polygamists!!

Taylor Morgan said...

so funny you posted this today. last night I had a dream, well more like nightmare, that my husband was going to become a polygamist and I cried and cried and was so jealous. luckily it was just a nightmare. polygamy is not for us!

Lauren said...

Oh my goodness! Justin and I have been watching that show too! It honestly blows my mind! I don't know how they do it??!

That is too funny what Eric said!

Love this post!
xo- Lauren

Gentri said...

hahaha! can't believe he said that. But I love it. :)

Gertrude said...

Haha you're so cute! I'm 100% sure I wouldn't live with polygamy.

Ashley Slater said...

we aren't mormon but we have seen that show and I have made a similar comment to my husband.....and he made a similar comment that your hubs made to you to ME! But he also added that he would rather be single than try to deal with more than "one" of me! haha!

Shalyn said...

Now THAT is funny stuff right there! I think my husband put it similar when we talked about it but except for "multiple personalities" the word "crazy" was mentioned, ha! Love that picture of you two!

Stephanie and Such said...

Best.post.ever!! I only want one guy and he better only want one girl too!!!

Liesl said...

Haha too cute! I have actually watched "Sister Wives" too and it is indeed fascinating...but not for me either! :)

Liesl :)

Megan and Justin said...

Not gonna lie, that show kind of creeps me out. I saw it on netflix & paused on it...then went "naaaaah". hahaha

Amanda said...

Loved this post! I haven't watched the show at all because it creeps me out a little bit. And I adore the convo between you two :)

Miss Amy said...

CUTE picture of you two!!! :) Polygamy sounds like hell on earth to me. WHY would any self respecting woman ever choose that life? crazypeople

Bree said...

Aww so cute!! :) I definitely couldn't be a polygamist either!! No way!

Alexis Kaye said...

hahaha me and Clint have had the same discussion! Ours was more like, "I'm probably too much work already and I'm only one wife. Do you think you could handle more?" "NO!" hahahahhah

P! said...

SHUT. THE. FRONT DOOR!! I was JUST going to do a post on this, right this very minute, but before I started I wanted to pop by my bloggy bestie's page and what do I see?! Good grief!! Great minds think sooo much alike! Oh well- I may still do my post anyway, so you can read up on it again, friend! Hahaha!!

HaHaHA. Best couple EVER. :)

I love watching this show because I am so intrigued by this super strange lifestyle....not intrigued like I want to live it, but intrigued like: Whaaaaat??!?!? It makes no sense to me at all. Yuck.

My husband is always like...."why are you watching this garbage!?!"
