We all Scream.

Basically, every day I learn something new about Cory.

A few of these things have surprised me. A lot.

While we were dating I assumed we had similar taste in T.V. programming. He liked all the same shows I liked! We had very specific dates with hulu every week to catch up on Bones, Lie to Me, The Simpsons and The Office.

Not usually all at once. But, sometimes, yes. All at once.

We still love those shows, and watch them together as much as possible but, where in the world was he hiding his love for the History Channel?? He has a crazy love for shows like the following:

1) Swamp People: The good people of the swamps and their adventures/trials huntin' gators.
2) Ax Men: The good people of the logging companies and their adventures/trials cuttin' trees down.

And the greatest compilation of Cory's love and interests so far: 3) Swamp Loggers: The good people of the swamps start a logging company. I call it the Perfect Storm.

So, I've been learning a lot about swamps and logging lately. It's a whole new world, that I never thought I would be a part of.

Also, when we were picking out some ice cream at the store the other day, Cory decided to go with the giant container of Neapolitan. I never get that kind for two reasons, which I revealed to him:

1) Why get that plain kind when they have tubs of deliciousness like Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and basically anything you can dream of?
2) Strawberry Icecream is the grossest thing ever, and I would never waste a serving of icecream in such a careless manner.

His response? "I like Strawberry icecream."

Oh. So we got it.

Less than 3 days later:

I laughed so hard when I opened up the container. Cory didn't get it.

Cory: "Why are you laughing"?
Me: "You ate all the strawberry ice cream!? And only the strawberry ice cream? In three days?!"
Cory: "I thought you said you didn't like it?"

He really likes swamps, logs, and strawberry ice cream.
Oh, and of course, ME :)
I just couldn't resist the sappiness/corniness. It was tooo easy.

I love that there is a show about swamp loggers. Because if you like both you can watch all three but if you only like learning about loggers you can watch the logger show or if you only like swamp people you can just watch the swamp show. The history channel truly thinking. Early married life is awesome like that!! It only gets better =)

That's hilarious about the ice creams! Boys are so funny! :) And yes, you will continue to learn things!

They say when you're dating you're 98% compatible (you're trying to impress 'em right??) and then after you've been married awhile you're only like 50%...haha, go figure! Have fun getting to know your sweet hubby!

oh you make me laugh. keep the stories comin.

seriously though, why isn't there a neopolitan that's cookies and cream, cookie dough, and vanilla? they should really get on that.

Lindy, you're my favorite. This post is the perfect elusive blend of good story-telling, wit, and a surprise photo finish.

And your newlywed infatuation is shining through, just like it should.

No me gusta Neopolitan (or Napoleon Bonaparte, who I always think of when I hear "neopolitan.") Because in my experience, it's not actually vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavored . . . it's just white, brown, and pink.

Lance loved this story by the way.
When Lance and I grocery shop we take turns picking out the "frozen dessert". I always pick delicious flavors of ice cream and he picks rainbow rocket popcicles. And then complains when his tongue hurts because he ate 7 in one sitting. Silly boys.
