When Boyfriend Is Home

Boyfriend is an EMT. That's no secret. It's really hard sometimes, having him gone for 48-72 hours at a time. We spend a lot of time texting each other stupid pictures. This last weekend, he traded shifts with someone, so he has been home more this week than usual. 

It's really nice having him home. Except for when he plays 9 hours worth of videogames and then crawls into bed at 2:30am. But otherwise... Yesterday, I had him meet me at the gym. He forced me to take a picture of him squatting with his ATG.

Due to all of my running, my behind does not go down that far. I have been working on flexibility and foam rolling each day. While I always squat past parallel, I dream of the day I can actually get my butt to the ground.

When boyfriend is home, he makes lattes. Yesterday he tried to make me a special one. He's pretty cute sometimes.

When boyfriend is home, he makes me laugh uncontrollably. He's not the type of oerson who is funny when he tries to be. He's the type of person who says those subtly funny things that you think about and cry laughing twenty seconds later.

When boyfriend is home, he always makes sure to tell me I'm beautiful and that he loves me. He always goes out of his way to do nice things for me and will never hesitate to stop what he is doing to help me with something.

I guess what I am trying to say is that boyfriend is also my best friend and I really enjoy having him at home with me. I guess I will continue sharing him with the people who need him in an emergency.

What is your favorite thing about your significant other?


  1. My Boyfriend seems just as perfect as yours! ;) Except my boyfriend works retail so he is home much more often than yours. My boyfriend is trying to be a firefighter so I hear a lot of EMT stories. It seems crazy, (and great for him!) to go through being an EMT. So. Much. Pressure. My favorite thing about my significant other is his humor. He is so good at making me laugh hysterically.

  2. I love the latte picture, that is adorable! As for me, I love that my hubby makes me dinner. And he listens to exactly how much of what I want and how to cook it healthy for me. And he surprises me with things like a nuun right after my workouts, or a glass of wine with cheese and crackers if dinner will be late.

  3. This was a very sweet post. :) My favorite thing about my hubby is that he is my best friend. My one and only. And he makes me feel the same way. My husband suffers from seizures, so unfortunately I have had to call 911 several times and AMAZING EMTs have shown up at our house at all hours of the night. I appreciate everything EMTs to do to help us. I hope your boyfriend knows how much the people who need him appreciate it!

  4. So sweet! Now I want a latte! :D I love the way my hubby surprises me with a coffee or latte when he comes home at night....especially if it's been a bad day. :)

  5. You two are so cute together! I hope I get to meet this best friend of yours when we fly to Cali! "I'm going to California, to live in the summer sun." <---This just popped into my head. It's "California" by Pink.

  6. How did you get that adorable jean-butt picture?!

    I like the idea of 48-72 hours on, and then the rest of the week off. But I get how hard that can be. It looks like you enjoy the time he's home to the fullest.
