what do husbands know anyway?

Can you tell this is going to be good?
The other day my husband and I went out on a date (dinner + movie)
As we were waiting for our food, I was just sort of updating him on all of the things I have going on.
I was telling him since I do hair, photography, blog and have the shop I don't really know if I have a title.
My mom just says I'm an entrepreneur, I call myself and artist..

I asked Brandon what he thought about it and his response
"its cool you make money being a hobbyist"

......

um.
what?
A hobbyist..?

......

I don't know why I felt so offended, but the fact that I could completely support the both of us
if anything were to happen to his job.. well I think that makes me more then a hobbyist right?

My point is.. boys are stupid. (that's all) =)

  1. I don't know if you watch The Office but, it reminds me of the episode where Pam tries to prank Jim by using his brothers but, they end up saying something offensive about her art being just a hobby.

    Men. ;)

  5. I would've been offended too. You're doing hard work!! Not that hobbies aren't hard or work but hobbyist kind of sounds like what you're doing isn't serious.

  6. No joke - my husband told his co-worker I make money as a "hobbyist" too. And he came home all proud, and said "I was bragging about you today. Told the guys you make all sorts of money as a hobbyist."

    Eww! Boys don't get it!

  8. This post really made me smile! Boys are usually so stupid and naive, most of the times they don't really think of what they're saying. You could answer back with this quote:
    "Find something to do that you really love and you won't have to work a single day in your life." :-)

  9. Nope you are definitely not a hobbyist, you are a role model/powerhouse! I would love to be able to create beautiful things and enjoy what I do everyday, with the huge plus that people pay you to do it. Best career everr.

  21. lol my husband is the same way so i don't bother telling him much of anything 'cause he doesn't really care anyway.

    i would say you're an artist :) you should smack him for calling you a hobbyist :P

  22. I think the answer was cool. I am pretty sure he knows you love what you do and he's proud of you doing what you love and still making money! :) Who cares what anyone calls it! :D
