attack of the spider.

  Top: Gap Skirt: F21 Boots: Steve Madden
One of the first things I learned about Trevor after we started living together, was that he wouldn't be offering to kill any spiders for me. Trevor is scared of spiders. Like, really really scared of spiders. I can get freaked out every now and then from a big one, but Trevor is way more afraid of spiders then me. If we are both home, I do the killing. I will never forget a phone called I received one night. It was the first time we had been apart (like out of town apart) since we had been married. I believe I was in San Diego back home for something, I can't remember right now, but Trevor called me a little freaked out.
"ALYCIA! You will never believe it. I was making the bed and all of a sudden I saw this spider. He saw me too, and instead of running away from me like one normally would, the spider looked right at me and started running towards me! He was chasing me! I am not even kidding! It was the freakiest thing ever."
(Me trying not to laugh)
"Trevor, I seriously doubt the spider was actually running at you."
"But it was! It was trying to attack me."
"Haha okay Trevor, the spider tried attacking a giant sized human that could easily step on it."
"I swear!"
"Okay, I believe you :)" haha
Now lets fast forward to just the other night. I am sitting on the computer and hear a scream from the bathroom. I called out to Trevor but he didn't respond. I didn't really think that much of it. It was about time for bed so I walk into our room and Trevor is still in the bathroom. I get into bed and am waiting for Trevor. He finally comes out.
"You will never believe it!"
"What?"
"I was in the bathroom and I saw a spider on the floor. It starts running towards me! Just like that other one I told you about did!"
"Is that why I heard you scream?"
"Yeah, it ran towards me and I had to jump over it!"
At this point I am bursting out in uncontrollable laughter. Oh my poor Trevor... haha. What can I say? I guess we just have a new breed of attacking spiders in our apartment. The kind that only seem to chase Trevor... and not me? haha

P.S. Happy Groundhogs Day everyone! I have always loved this day, probably because it felt like a mini holiday before my birthday. My poor mother was in labor pretty much all day today 22 years ago, haha. One Groundhogs Day tradition I always follow is to watch the movie Groundhogs Day. It is a classic, and hilarious. Watch it tonight :)

  1. have you seen that sex and the city where charlotte dates the guy scared of spiders? reminds me of this convo :)

    i put a bowl or cup over it and let james take care of it when he gets home :) i did that at work one day and i came back and it was still there... i immediately called maintenance and they didn't think i was serious. oh, i was. being very.serious.

  3. That made me laugh so hard! It still makes no sense to me how someone can go hunting and serve a mission in South Africa and be afraid of spiders. And yes, I was in labor all day as they were trying to induce me and you were stubborn and wouldn't come!!!!

  4. this is pretty funny. I'm so glad my hubby doesn't mind handling the bugs and everything- I actually can't even WATCH him kill anything because I just cry and think of the poor bugs family or something... odd, I know... anyway, LOVE this outfit!

  8. Hahahahahah! I honestly thought my boyfriend was the only guy on this earth that was deathly afraid of spiders. Now that I have read your adorable story and read some of the comments, I will definitely have to tell my boyfriend that he's not alone.

    You look gorgeous! :)

  16. ‎"This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you"
    Classic Movie, agreed. Second only to What About Bob.

  17. First off, you look gorgeous!!

    Omg, poor Trevor. My husband is the same way, less dramatic lol. Now that we live in our house, we don't have a bug problem. Since, Dave decided to buy very potent professional bug spray [that is human and animal friendly:)]. Which we are both thankful about!!

    I hope you have a Happy Birthday ♥

  22. Heh, love it. I'm also terrified of spiders, but none have attacked me, to my recollection ;)
    My fiancé is SO deathly afraid of snakes.. he'll scream like a little girl and run away at the sight of even a small, garden snake. Makes me lol.

    The whole story of Trevor and his belief that the spiders are out to get him was hilarious. Good thing he has a brave wife to keep the spiders at bay ;). Does this mean today is your birthday..? If so, Happy Birthday! If I'm off, then Happy Birthday in advance!
