Thumbs up Most memorable thing your wife said to you that most guys wouldn't believe

I have several but here is one for the record books!

Bought the new 26' Sea Hunt in 2009, same week we closed on the boat we found out we were pregnant with our second child. Needless to say she saw NO boating time for quite a while. Once the baby was born I asked and asked and asked but she had every excuse in the world why she didn't want to go. "Where and I going to nurse the baby, how is she going to nap, its just gonna mess up her schedule" etc etc etc

The baby was born in May of 2010 and on day in September of that year I told her that my oldest son and I were going to head down to the boat. At this time we were keeping it at Matagorda Harbor Marina in Matagorda, Texas. I was about to walk out the door when she said "WAIT...can you wait 5 minutes, I want to go!!" I said of course. We boated that day, grilled, had drinks, played at the beach...she had a blast, her FIRST time on a boat!!!

She suggested that the next time we headed down to the boat that we invite another couple and their kids. This was only two weeks later and we did just that. Had another couple down with their kids...we grilled, played, drank bloody mary's and had a blast.

We clean up the boat, loaded our kids in the car (only had two at the time), they fell asleep in about 5 minutes and as we're pulling over the levee exiting the marina, she looks at me and tells me how much fun she had, how much she loves the boat...and then a moment of silence. Never having once talked about it before...I mean never...her next words were:

"WE NEED TO BUY A PLACE DOWN HERE"

I almost drove off the narrow road going over the levee!!!!! The rest is History, we have had the house for 2 1/2 years now.

Here are some pictures from those to trips

Ok, lets here your story!!!

(my wife is an Avid boater... so I can't do much with a boating theme)
First date with my wife....
We go out for dinner/drinks in Ft. Lauderdale. While waiting for the table we go to the bar and order a round. I ask for a Corona Light... Then she asks for "Jack on the Rocks."

We've been inseparable ever since.
Almost 9 years together, 7 years of marriage, and a couple of kids too. My best bud no doubt.

That's awesome! We just bought out first beach house, it's in Holden Beach. It's not something the wife said, but something she did.
I'm real big into motorcycles and before I started my business I was running the service department at a local dealership. One Saturday I'm sitting at my desk at the shop doing work stuff and I hear a bike pull up in front, I look out and I see a nice Suzuki Hayabusa (200mph from the factory!), I keep looking and I'm like "that's my bike", next thing you know I see my wife get off of it. This bike is my baby, it's got over $10k in work don't to it. She just got her moto license a week before but had been riding a dual sport supermoto bike on the street for a while. I say, "hey babe what's going on". She says, "MAN THIS THING IS FAST! I almost fainted and at the same time I almost creamed my pants because she was riding a bad ass bike. Long of the short of it is, she claimed that bike from that day on and I rode one of the others until I found my first hayabusa that I sold when I was 18 on craigslist. So we have 2 hayabusa a now and I love seeing her ride it

While watching coverage of the 9/11 anniversary the announcer mentioned that over 700 people from NJ were killed. In total shock she asked me, " Oh my God, when did they attack NJ?"

She'd been drinking one night, looked at me and said babe, I think we need to buy you a new truck.
I have a 6.0L F250, and of course was having EGR problems. I said, well for $4-5k we can just fix all the problems with mine.
She said no, you work hard with it and I want you to have a brand new truck you can depend on.
Well, it's a shame Ford dealerships aren't open at 11 pm, because I would have gone RIGHT THEN and bought one. Long story short, she slept it off and I still have a P.O.S. 6.0L F250.

" I don't think you can afford that boat you have at the marina and me, something gotta go" I said "give me five minutes, and I will pack my stuff".

Maybe the best decision of my life, certainly the most profound.
