What my loved one says about me: Guest post by my hubby!

Becky is hosting a link up of "What My Loved One Says About Me", so I asked David to write a post for me.  And guess what?  He actually did it!  And it's sweet.  Read on a learn a thing or two about me from the person who knows me better than anyone else and then won't you leave a comment and let him know what a great job he did?  Thanks, hun!

Mandi knows a lot about the Catholic faith.
            I have learned so much from her about the Catholic faith since we’ve been married.  She has definitely helped me to grow in that aspect.  For that I am very grateful.  I know that she will do an amazing job of teaching our children.  Hence, the next fact:

She is a great teacher.
            Mandi is a Spanish teacher at a K-8 school near us.  I have observed her teaching many times and she is great at it.  Recently, I became very interested in being a teacher as well.  She has given me great tips on applying for jobs and helping me with my interview process for Teach for America.

She loves when I help her with her blog.
            And I love to help her with it as well!  I told her that I would love to do this post for her because I thought it would be fun!  I know she gets excited on these rare occasions.  (The truth is that I’m not very good at writing blog posts).

Like me, she hates grammatical errors.
            Hopefully, there are none in this post.  Our biggest pet peeves are when people use the wrong form of your and you’re; and there, their, they’re.

Her main love language is gifts.
            Mandi loves to get gifts!  Occasionally, I will bring her roses home after work.  Her face always lights up when she sees them and I love that!  Her mom even wraps individual stocking stuffers for Mandi because she loves to open them.  I don’t mean to sound like she only likes to receive gifts, but never gives them.  She definitely loves giving gifts as well!

She is a great mom.
            Our 16 month old absolutely adores her mom.  They can’t stand to be away from each other.  I know Lucia will grow up to be an amazing girl and woman some day.

She loves to play word games.
            Every time that we have free time, Mandi wants to play Scrabble.  She also loves the Words with Friends app.  She gets frustrated when I don’t play it fast enough!

She can be impatient.
            So far, I’ve only written positive things.  I felt like I needed to include one negative thing so that she doesn’t seem like a superhero!

She is a godmother to both a 1 year old and a 82 year old.
            That’s right!  She is godmother to both her cousin’s daughter and her grandfather! (I'm the godfather to both too.)

She is an excellent baker.
            Mandi makes the best desserts!  I am always requesting that she make some.  Especially her primordial fudge!

About the author: David is a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, sweet husband to Mandi, and super hands-on daddy to Lulu.  He makes a mean caramel macchiato and can eat a whole batch of primordial fudge. 


  1. I loved reading this! It is such fun to read your husband's perspective, Mandi.

  2. Aww, you two are so cute! It was great to see a husband's perspective. Also, right after I read this I got up to make that fudge (I had bookmarked it when you mentioned it before, but didn't have coconut oil at that time.) I just had a piece, and it is fabulous!

  3. What a cute idea having your husband write a guest post...good perspective and so heart felt:)

  4. So sweet! It is so fun to hear the amazing things people have to say about you!

  5. Great post David! Confession: I'm always using the wrong your and there. I'm trying to get better though!!

  6. I use the wrong ones from time to time too, I just get so frustrated with myself when I do!

  7. He's the sweetest, isn't he? He stayed up late the night before he had to work early (4:30am) to write this, even though I told him not to worry about it. Although, if he had worked on it when I first asked him about it...

  8. Glad you liked it! David would ask for it everyday if he thought I would make it for him that often!
