The 'Commercial'

Well, you can't actually see Jim (he said trust me, I'm back there in the distance, lol), but here is one of the two commercials that they filmed at his work. I just took pictures of it off of our tv, but if you happen to see the commercial & watch it carefully, you'll see some sparks in the background.....that's where he was :) I was in my scraproom when Jim saw it & he yelled for me.....gotta love TiVo as all he had to do was rewind it for me :)
These 2 guys are actors that probably don't even know a thing about the van, lol.
At the end of the commercial, Jim said that they had to keep wetting down the area to capture this 'look'. Don't you just love it when they show all those commercials of cars/trucks going through rain & snow, but yet they're still super clean? HA! Wish my car would stay that way!

So.....Jim's not an actual star to other people, but he is to me & that's all that matters :)

I found this husband/wife thing on another blog recently & thought it would be fun to do.....feel free to do it on your own blog as well & let me know if you do :)

What's his name? Jim, Jimbo, Jimmy ;)

How long did you date? 10 months & 6 days :)

How old is he? He just turned 43 on the 25th of January.

Who eats more? I'd say we eat about the same which, sadly, is too much :(

Who said "I love you" first? Believe it or not, we said it to each other at the same exact time :)

Who is taller? about 1/2-3/4 of an inch.

Who sings better? Me again.....he can't hold a note at all! Sorry babe, but it's the truth :)

Who is smarter? He wins this one.....he's currently going for his bachelor's degree & is always the one to help with our daughter's homework.

Who does the laundry? We do it together. You'll probably laugh at this, but I make him go down into the basement with me because I hate basements & that's where the washer & dryer are. I do all the sorting & load the machines, he usually folds & then we both put the laundry away.

Who does the dishes? The dishwasher ;) But we have some dishes that we was by hand & we share that chore.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Right side? Hmmm.....if you're looking at the bed, then he's on the right side. If you're laying in the bed, then it's me. Does that make sense?

Who pays the bills? Me.....I've offered to let him do it before & for some reason, he refused, lol.

Who mows the lawn? He mows & I usually do the weedeater.

Who cooks dinner? We do it gives us an opportunity to talk to each other in the process.

Who drives when you are together? Me :) Need I say more? I LOVE to drive.....I even drove the moving truck when we moved from VA to MI. And Jim hates driving my Charger, so it's all MINE, MINE, MINE ;)

Who is more stubborn? Both of us! LOL

Who kissed who first? We kissed each other at the same time :)

Who asked who out first? Well, we met in a bar one night, so we never really 'asked' each other out.....we just hit it off & went from there.
Who proposed? Neither of us.....we just kind of decided to get married when my divorce was final.

Who is more sensitive? Definitely me!

Who has more friends? Probably him, since he has a lot of friends at work.

Who has more siblings? Me....I have 4 sisters, all older than me & he has a brother & sister, both younger than him.

Who wears the pants in the family? We both do.....jeans :)

Tomorrow, I'm doing my very first scrapbook/craft show & I'm SUPER excited about it, not to mention a little nervous as well. Wish me luck! And if you happen to be in the area, stop by & say Hi & feel free to buy something from me as well (hint, hint) :) It's being held at Scrapbook Emporium in Shelby Township, MI.

Then on Sunday, Jim & his team bowl in the finals for that tourney that I mentioned a few weeks ago. I may end up having to bowl, too as one of the guys has bronchitus, so that's just another thing I have to be nervous about.

Speaking of bowling......on Wednesday, I bowled my best game this year so far :) I started out with a 166 for my first game, then I had a 164 for my second. We ended up losing the first two games as we had to give up 131 pins in handicap! But then for the third game, I had the first 2 strikes, 9 spare in the 3rd frame & then 6 strikes in a row going into the tenth frame. I did everything exactly the same as I had been doing & ended up leaving an 8-10 pin split in the tenth :( If I had struck out, my game would have been 279, but I ended up with a 245, so I'm still happy :) Jim had to strike out in the tenth to tie me that game & he did (brat! lol). We did end up winning that game & taking totals, so we got 3 out of 7 points & we're still in first place :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend & stay warm! It's currently snowing here (again!)!
