Trouble In Paradise


You guys, something serious happened this weekend. A serious ripple in the smooth ocean that is mine and Justin's relationship. You would think that after almost three years together, we would know a lot about each other, but apparently, that's not the case. Let me set up the scene for you all...

Friday night, Justin and I went to listen to a concert that his brother was playing at. On the way home, I started flipping through some radio stations when I remembered something that makes me oh so happy. I'm sure we all have those local radio stations that start playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. For some people, that's like Hell on earth. Well, I happen to absolutely love Christmas music. I could listen to it all year round!

So, of course, I flip to the Christmas radio station and am just overcome with happiness. You have to be heartless to not feel that immense joy when you hear a great Christmas tune....

Unfortunately, my fiance is a heartless grinch!

I can tell he's staring at me out of the corner of my eye, and when I turn to look at him, expecting to see hearts and unicorns in his eyes, all I see is disbelief and annoyance. These words came out of his mouth:

"You're one of those people?"

Umm excuse me? Those people? Yes, actually, I am one of those people, and proud of it! And why does he not know this about me? We've spent two Christmases together already!

After explaining my love of Christmas music and the holiday season and why I think it should be celebrated year round, he has the nerve to say this:

"I just don't think I can get past this. I'm not sure how we're going to move forward. We need to seek professional help."

Professional help? Maybe he should just grow a heart!

But ladies, I have good news. They always say there's a rainbow after the storm, and whoever "they" is was right. Since Justin is the best fiance and always gives me what I want, he let me listen to Christmas music several times over the weekend. I think he's finally coming around on the joyousness that is the holidays! I guess he does have a heart after all...

Haha I knew this was going to be something minuscule as soon as I read the title. I haven't started listening to it yet but somehow STILL have songs stuck in my head. It's al from the damn Target commercials I know it...

haha! My husband is the same way! He was highly disappointed to learn my love of Christmas music before Thanksgiving when we were dating. We've compromised & survived though! I'm limited to one song at a time until Thanksgiving, then it's 24/7! :)
