We go together.

Beau and me.

We just go together.

When I get a can of mixed nuts, I pick all the almonds out. He picks out the pecans, cashews, and macadamia nuts. (I don't buy the ones with peanuts ... just the "fancy" nuts are good enough for this family.)

When I eat steak, I cut off all the fat. Beau eats it.

I'm afraid of biscuit cans. He pops them for me.

When we share fajitas, I eat all the chicken. He eats all the steak.

He always needs my help moving large objects, like furniture and refrigerators. Of course, I am always there, ready to offer my muscle, without a complaint (cough).

I know a lot of songs. He knows more and knows all the correct words.

I like to sleep late on Saturday morning. He cooks great pancakes and omelets. Pure joy!

When I can't remember something, I know he will ... every detail.

When I see he's about to lose his mind, I tell him to relax and offer my wise, calm counsel.

When we're working on some project, we feed off of each other's ideas. It's great. I work so much better with him than alone.

Point being ... we just go together. Although we're total opposites, we're exactly the same.

Would it be lame to say, "he completes me"? Uhhh ... yeah ... pretty much.

I love that man.

{Disclaimer: Don't think there are times that I don't want to give him a beat-down ... 'cause there are. We're by no means perfect. I'm sure likewise he'd like to muzzle me. But, honestly, we just enjoy each other's company and we know what ticks each other off (which we would never do purposefully ... never ... just to annoy ... absolutely not).}

cute! i feel the same about mine, he and i are so opposite that we complete each other very well. the bonus to that is that there is someone ready for every task and someone on duty for every shift. it has worked very well over the years, :D what would we do without our guys? we would be incomplete.

This sounds just like us - two completely different people but together we worked perfectly. Loved this!

I am afraid of biscuit cans too....my boys and hubby make fun of me all the time! I am so glad that I am not the only one!!

Love the picture of you two. SO much of this is true for Dave and I too.

The fat off the steak thing just gags me - Dave eats mine too and that's just gross. Oh well, it works. :)

It's so cool how God brings people together who truly compliment one another!

That's what I love about you guys - you aren't afraid to rile each other up or tick each other off - but you just KNOW that you were meant for each other...and you can just tell that you have so much fun being together.
