~ My Husband Rocks! ~ Friday - Adventurous

Click here to read about why I started MHR Fridays!


One of the things I love the most about Austin is how adventurous he is, and how willing he is to try new things! In our new life, that's something that has, and will continue to, serve him very well!


Here's a couple of examples from the past couple of weeks. Last weekend, on our way between Pisa and Aviano, we stopped overnight in the Cinque Terre (which is absolutely incredible, btw). We got dinner at this adorable little restaurant, and Austin ordered the pesto lasagna, because we had been told that we had to try the pesto in Vernazza, and he had been dying to have lasagna in Italy. He thought that what he ordered was a piece of meaty, red-sauced lasagna with a side of pasta au pesto. Much to his surprise, the waiter brought him green lasagna.


He kind of laughed at the situation, then dug right in. As we were leaving the restaurant, I asked him if he enjoyed his Italian eating experience and he said, "It was pretty good, but I think I prefer the penne with the pesto." We both looked at each other and then burst out laughing because that was a sentence I never thought I'd hear my husband say, lol!

The other instance occurred earlier this week. Working with military contractors on bases definitely has its perks. One of which is the use of the on base gym and fitness center. Monday after work we joined one of the MCYM staff members at the gym for a "Turn & Burn" class. Forty five minutes of spinning followed by 45 minutes of power yoga. It's quite the workout, and the trainer was really fun, but I was most impressed with my adorable hubby who participated in both spinning and yoga and gave every position a try! He even did his breathing right!!! :) There was another spinning class on Wednesday evening, so we took our gym clothes with us to work that day. As we were leaving the house, Austin said, "I'm glad it's just spinning tonight, not spinning followed by yoga." Another one of those sentences I never expected to come out of his mouth!

He would tell you that he's not a very adventurous eater and that he's pretty picky, but as you can tell, he'll try just about anything once! I LOVE that about him! My husband so totally rocks! :)

  1. That green lasagna looks good to me! Glad he was a good sport about getting a dish other than what he expected.

    I'm so glad that you're enjoying your new life, and you're right that being willing to try new things will help.

  2. so thrilled today that my husband saw this. i link my blog on FB and i asked..'did you see my blog?" (he doesn't read it typically..) and he smiled and said yes... :) :) :) God is good even in the middle of a bunch of 'stuff' that is happening around here.

  3. okay, I posted my husband rocks entry today. Thanks for the reminder, as I haven't done it for awhile. He's needing some "love" from me too! (
    Have a good weekend. *so jealous that you are over in cool is that?*

  4. I love MHR. I didn't relize that it was from here! Great idea! Super great blog! And I'm so going to take part in that Union 28 deal!

  5. I love this idea. I just posted a MHR on my blog. If you could add me to the MHR blogroll, that would be awesome.


Always great to hear from you! I ALWAYS read your comments, and they make my day!

Thank you!
