It’s a very hard pill to swallow, the moment you realize your husband isn’t perfect. Yesterday was that day for me. Why you ask? Read on dear friend. And join me in my heartache.

It’s all because Ben has emphatically stated and deemed bacon an unnecessary meat. UNNECESSARY? BACON?!

Who have I married?! What kind of lie have I bee living in for the last 6 years?

Today I live my truth, that I will not rest until he has come to love bacon.

Since we didn’t have anything else planned for dinner, and I was running out of light to shoot these beautiful BACON FILLED creations with last night, Ben helped and I charged him with cooking the bacon, to which it was revealed he had never cooked bacon before in his life.

It was unnecessary he said. Bacon is unnecessary. *Cue knife murder old timey movie music*

WUT? 

So then I got mad and MADE him figure out how to cook the bacon. After asking if it was “done” and me peering into the pan to inspect it, I told him to figure it out himself. Everyone needs to know bacon and how to cook it so that it’s mystical properties shine through.

As you can see before you, these breakfast dogs came together splendidly and the bacon on top is perfect. So all is not lost in our marriage, and hopefully one day, may not today, maybe not tomorrow – but one day we will recover from this tragedy.

Until then, eat more hotdogs!
