"Olive Juice" ily

 You'll understand the title- (no, I don't like juice from olives- gag) Keep reading.. [or study the image to the left]
Have I mentioned how much I Love my husband? I know I have, but the words in my blog no where near capture the feelings I have for the amazing man I married 2 years ago.

The past 2 weeks were just what we needed. When I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with him any more than I already had- He proves me wrong time and time again. Every time I think, "It's not possible to be any happier than I am at this very moment".. again, He'll prove me wrong. I love it. The leave he took for us to spend time together was so amazing.

Yes, This is one of those sappy, mushy, YOUDISGUSTMEBECAUSEYOURSOINLOVE blogs. :D <-there's that big cheesey smile again. Get use to it ;)

It's the little things he does that make me smile so much.. and still gives me butterflies. My last text from him after taking him to the pier for yet another underway said "Olive Juice". Some of you may or may not know what I'm talking about.. or may think I'm crazy, so let me explain:

I don't know what it's called.... Similar to a "Homophone".. but not exactly. I was told once it was considered a "Homophene" but I can't find any validity to it... Ok.. When you mouth "olive juice" to someone across a room, it looks like you're saying "I love you". Ya got me? My husband and I sometimes do this, except I say "Elephant Shoe". We did this a little when we first started dating, and then it faded away. Over the past 2 weeks, it somehow popped back up in our relationship. I'd say "Elephant Shoe" and he'd reply with "Olive Juice".. we'd actually speak it instead of mouthing it.. but who cares. Sometimes he'd throw in a "I want to Vacuum"... which is something that looks totally different than "I Love You"... go mouth that one in the mirror ;) or mouth it to your SO- ha.

"Olive Juice"- Made my day, even though I was letting him go for a short time with his ship- not that I had much choice :p.

It's the little things <3


  1. It's so funny that you posted this. I heard once that it was "Elephant Juice" (which looking back, doesn't really make sense), but my husband and I always say Elephant Juice to each other. haha... I think Olive Juice is much more appropriate!!! :-) But, I like that we have our own thing, really. :-)

  2. Al and I have a similar thing - we usually have the following exchange:
    Me: I love you
    Al: I love you more
    Me: You win
    Al: Naw, we both win

    It happens a handful of times each week. Those little things really are special, aren't they!?

  3. Have you ever seen "The Other Sister"? There is a seen about the "olive juice" thing.. I think it's adorable! I'm glad everything is going well with you guys. The Big D will be hard but you'll be ok <3

  4. Kalen, there are so many different ones.. My husband had never heard "Elephant Shoe" and I had never heard "Olive Juice" until some how one day it came up with us lol.

    Mel, My husband and I do that too..He's the one that gives up and says "You Win" lol. The little things are so great.

    Sarah, I haven't seen that.. but Now I want to! lol

  5. *scene not seen...lol I do know my spelling!
