Alright, here we go. This is my first time blogging. For those of you who cannot tell, this is not the traditional Lauren writing. This is her husband. For shame on you for not being able to tell the difference between a woman writing this and a man. For those of you who knew that it was me, congrats!!!! Stop by the house sometime and I will give you a tootsie pop. I will even let you pick the color.

---HOLD THE PHONE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! I was simply going to write this blog because everyday Lauren tells me I need to and I give her the "ya ya i will get around to it someday" answer. Well, I had just started to write when Lauren got home early from work. Now, before I proceed, you need to know a back story. -Once upon a time Lauren sang to Tony and that's how Tony fell in love with her. For the past 9 months (yes for all you keeping track, that is how long we have been married. Another tootsie roll for you.) Tony has been trying to get Lauren to sing. For whatever reason, she just does not like to anymore.-ok, back to today. Lauren walks through the door and gets out the guitar and tells me to pick a song for her to sing. She sang Hallelujah, and left me breathless. I must admit, I did get a little teary eyed. I dont think she saw it though, so dont tell her. And I will just keep my fingers crossed that she somehow skips over that part of the blog.

Anyhow, I am glad something interesting happened for me to write about on my first blog! For the first time in over a year, and the first time since we have been married, my wife sang to me. Now, for those of you who don't know Lauren, I must ask why you are reading this blog. If you are reading this and you don't know her...that is kinda creepy. Go stalk someone else. For those of you who do know Lauren, but have not heard her sing, you should make that a top priority. I am assuming you have read some other blogs she has put up where she exaggerates to the point of blasphemy on how good of a husband I am. And she asks "Why does he do this?" It is because of her voice. I would do anything she wanted everyday of her life if she would keep singing. Oh, and she does make a pretty tasty lasagna. That has to be included in the reason for love.

Now, to bring my premiere blog to a close, I have just decided the last paragraph of my blog will be dedicated to giving advice. Becuase we all know that I am pretty smart when it comes to everything and honestly, who wouldnt benefit from my vast knowledge? This weeks advice goes out to those in or seeking to be in a relationship. Ahem...If you are the female of the group, learn how to cook lasagna and learn how to sing. Now, for those of you who cant do either, dont worry. there is some wiggle room. If you cant make lasagna, you can learn to make spaghetti. Just make sure you know how to make a good marinara sauce. And yes, you have to learn how to sing, but I never told you what song you had to sing. Virtually, you have hundreds of thousands of choices! If you do these two things, guys will be lining up at the door with flowers and chocolates. And not just any guy, studs. If you are already in a relationship, you will never have to worry about losing your guy. Now, for the males. All I can say is look for a girl who can sing and cook lasagna. Sounds like a short yet odd list of qualities in a mate, but trust me. If you have these two things you will never want for anything else in life.

Not really sure how I am supposed to end this.....uh......guess I will do it the only way I know how.

P.s. the song Tongue Tied by Grouplove is stuck in my head. Check it out.


  1. Oh my gosh Tony, I truly, truly loved reading your blog. Please keep writing. You are an extremely good writer. Love your style and especially loved your topic!!!

  2. You forgot her beautiful eyes and the way she sticks out her tongue just so when she says something funny. I remember your telling me that she caught you with those two 'sexy' things. :) I am glad she loves you despite your blogging abilities! OK. JK. You make a terrific blogger.

  3. Lauren does have an AMAZING singing voice! Fun to read your post! Keep it up! :)
