Leah's first edition of: What's in my husband's wallet

Last night I had to make a copy of Ben's Driver's License because both of ours had expired after our Foster Parenting classes.  I love looking thru Ben's wallet because it is like a mini photo album with all these old pictures in it.  He has had the same wallet since before we got together :)


I love this picture of his dad he carries around.  That made its way into his wallet before I ever did I think.
I found this note that I don't remember writing him.  It must be pretty old :)
Of course we have the "thru the years" shots of Kobe.
and a picture from our wedding, my favorite shot from that day...
Oh, and this lovely senior picture of me.  I was so happy in high school  :)
I guess I would have to say this is my favorite thing in his wallet.  This is a picture of us from when we FIRST started dating.  We took it with a camera that takes your picture and turns it into a sticker.  He has it stuck to the left side of his open wallet.  I have a feeling that might be why he has had the same wallet all these years.

Super sweet! But, how does he fit all that stuff and still carry it in his pocket?? Does he carry a man bag? :)

HOw cool! It is like a time capsule (I don't think I spelled it right...). I liked seeing these pictures.

lol, he has a ton of other stuff in it too, it is just really thick-no man bag for my hubby :)

Chris and I heard it called a Murse the other day LOL :) so funny! Our husbands would only have a "murse" if we photoshopped it in :) hmmmm (good idea:))!

That was sweet! Thanks for sharing that, Leah! We are excited for your next step in becoming foster parents!!

Love you! Have a great week!

i love seeing what Ben has in his wallet. That reminded me of his grandpa's wallet. What memories when you look at all Ben has in his wallet. How sweet and how neat. You can tell what is important to them by what they have in their wallet.

Man-Bag? Murse? Only if they had a Sword, Pistol, Machine Gun, TNT or some manly thing like that in it. It would also have to be made by Nike or Adidas. At least I am man enough to let my wife take my wallet from me! I might not have gotten it back. :)

Leah W said...

there wasn't any money in it, why would i keep it? :)

What a big soft teddy bear. You and Kobe are so lucky!

I think lyss would be with Leah on this one. My wallet is worth as much as the leather used to make it. This is even with everything in it. I would most likely carry a Murse or "Man bag" if it had some sort of gun or knife that went with it. It makes it a little less gay but none the less still on the gay side.

I love this, what a great looking man my husband was and still is. It is so neat to see what he has in his wallet, it inspired me to look in marks....his is like Bens a glimpse in to his heart. I found a note I wrote him probably 20 some years ago.
What a sweet post.
Love you,
Mom
Looking forward to thursday
