You had met at coffee!
Instagram hubby and I have been going strong since 2011, so obviously I’m NOT going to bake him chocolate cookies everyday. We can annoy the living day light out of each other and a lot of times he’ll just roll his eyes for the things that come out my mouth. #DOnotASK
Anyway, I hate all these corny posts about true love and those your-guy-are-hotter-than-my-guy vibes… so let me tell you what I dislike about my Insta Hubby.
1 I hate it when he tells me I don’t look fat when I honestly swear-to-the-rooftop knows I have a mufftin top! Let’s just be real right now.
2 I hate it when I want to buy a whole packet of Zoo Cookies and he’s like: ‘baby, are you suuuuure?’
3 I hate the fact that he does not understand that my daily cappuccino fix is a need, not a luxury.
4 I hate it when he reminds me to pick up my seven outfits from the bedroom floor. We live in an one-bedroom-apartment, how am I suppose to be a Fashion Editor with NO closet space!?
5 I absolutely hate it when Instagram Husband does not want to take Instagram photos for me. You are Instagram Husband – what don’t you understand about that part?
6 I hate the fact that Instagram Husband is not a morning person. No sunrise hikes, no early road tripping to the West Coast. Nothing! Nallah!
7 I hate it when he’s more excited to greet the cat.
8 I hate the fact that Instagram Husband does not eat bacon. Who doesn’t eat bacon? WTF am I suppose to eat with my toast – anchovy and fish paste?
9 I hate it when Instagram Husband use my salon product shampoos. Unless you’re growing a man bun – do not touch my stuff!
10 But mostly, I hate the fact that everybody have this idea that Instagram hubby is this perfect little creature, but then again, he is that perfect. Well, most of the time anyway.
Oh, who am I kidding? After 6 years I am still obsessed with this guy. I get butterflies when we kiss. My heart rate jumps to 160 when he puts on his red PUMA bomber jacket and he gets the foaming part just right on my morning coffee.
Love you babe.
