Him Is Jim

I don't talk much about my husband on Ad Bits.  He's amazing (duh, he's been putting up with me for... oh lord! 13 years now if you count our dating years!).  I thought it was about time I featured a commercial that best embodies my Jim; this Direct TV ad does just that:

I'm JUST KIDDING!  That dude couldn't be more unlike my husband!  I just love the ad because of that mini giraffe.  How much would I pay for one?  Think second mortgage! 
Here are three actual (Jim approved) facts about my better half:
1.  He's an avid outdoorsman.  How in the world he wound up with can't (read: won't) bait a hook Jules, is beyond me.  He took me hunting once when we first started dating (I agreed because I was still trying to impress him, obviously).  I slept the first half hour and then waited in the truck.  He's a true conservationist for reals and I just love how he adores (and innately knows) everything outdoorsy.
2.  He has big ears.  And a great sense of humor about them.  And thank goodness for that because he hears a lot.  A lot of jokes, that is. :)  My siblings affectionately (?) refer to me as "Lefty" because my left ear sticks out more than my right.  Between Jim and I, our poor kids don't stand a chance in the ear department.  Wear your hair long girlies!
3.  He may be the last person on the planet without a Facebook account, he still wouldn't have a cell phone if work didn't require it, just recently did he start texting, and he wouldn't dream of "surfing" the internet.  He fully supports my blog, but doesn't read it unless I force him to on a regular basis.

There you have it Readers- the man juuuuuust crazy enough to end up with this spastic redhead!

Lol. I have never seen that commercial. I want a mini giraffe now too! lol. I could never go hunting - I cry when I accidentally run over a raccoon.

I love Jim already. He sounds that a wonderful person.

And your crackin' me up, yeah, I really didn't see you with a Russian Mujeriego with a mini giraffe as a husband!

Confession: I haven't visited your blog in a little while, but I just stopped by and I LOVE the new look! It's super girly and fabulous. Secondly, Drew and I also covet the mini-giraffe. Perhaps we can adopt one together with you and Jim and work out a shared custody arrangement. Finally, you are hilarious and I hope you have a fantastic birthday on Wednesday!!
