It is time for another birthday celebration in our house, and this time it is everyone’s favorite, Joe! It is no secret around here that being on Instagram is far from his favorite thing. But don’t let that fool you. He is the funnest guy you’ll ever meet! So today to celebrate him I am sharing 5 fun, crazy, funny, and maybe even surprising things you probably don’t know about him!
:: JOE GOT PAID TO GO TO COLLEGE
Yes you read that right. Joe is so dang smart and he is also extremely talented at baseball. So when it came time to go to college he had a full ride scholarship for academics and for baseball. So every month he would get a check directly to him, on top of his tuition. The kids think it is so insane and it has been awesome motivation for them to try and do the same!
:: JOE GREW UP WITH ALL BOYS
When it comes to our families, Joe and I are completely opposite. Joe grew up with all brothers and I grew up with all sisters. Which made for some fun and hilarious surprises when we first got married. One of my favorites was he had no idea what hairspray was when he first saw it in our bathroom!
:: JOE LOVES ICE CREAM AS MUCH AS I DO
I didn’t think it was possible to find someone that loves ice cream as much as I do, but Joe is right up there with me. When we first got married, we lived right across the street from a place called Scoops. We would go get a pint for each of us every single night. We still joke about our “scoops bodies” because we took the Freshman 15….or 50 very seriously. Haha!
:: JOE HAS CRAZY CURLY HAIR
You would never guess it because it is so short, but Joe has crazy curly curly hair. Like if he grew it out it would look like he had a big curly afro perm!! I will try to find some good pictures to share on Instagram.
:: JOE IS TERRIFIED OF HORSES
This one is so crazy to me. The guy is scared of very little, but horses is for sure up there on his list. I grew up riding horses all the time with my grandpa and absolutely love them, but Joe doesn’t want to be anywhere near them!
Hopefully that helps you get to know our favorite guy a little better. He isn’t a huge presence here in this space, but I honestly don’t know what we would do without him. He is our comedian when we need it most, the calm to our crazy, and just the best guy we could ever ask for!
