The Significant Other Blogfest!
Hosted by DL Hammons and Talli Roland, today’s blogfest is all about enticing your significant other into talking about you. It cost me a dinner and two foot massages, but I managed to talk my wife into writing something for the blogfest.
What can I tell you about Alex?
I’m sure you know about his NetFlix obsession. I can confirm he’s almost reached the end. When he resorts to nature specials, I’ll let you know. He loves his movies and music, and I’m aware of the Kate obsession. It’s okay, I don’t feel threatened. He wouldn’t know what to do if he ever got her.
What I can tell you is that Alex is very devoted. He takes everything very seriously. He’s devoted to his work, his music, and his writing. He’s a perfectionist and won’t stop until something is perfect. Sometimes he stresses because he doesn’t feel he’s doing enough. He’s very devoted to blogging and his online friends, and I hear about all of you on a daily basis.
I admire what Alex has accomplished with his first book. It’s been a fun adventure for him. Alex is very reserved, so outwardly he doesn’t appear overly excited. But whenever he sees a good review or someone mentions they enjoyed his book, I see that smile and know he’s very pleased. That makes me happy.
I think Alex is a very special man and I hope everyone else can see that, too.
Yeah, isn’t she great? To heck with Kate!

i think the surface is scratched... and kate who?
You have a treasure there, Alex.
It was lovely hearing from your wife and learning how devoted you are to your writing and blogging. Thank you Mrs. AJC!
My significant other
What a great idea for a Blogfest; I wish I'd heard of it sooner.
Not too surprising; writers are often quiet & reserved :)
How can you even think of Kate when you have a wife like that? Glad I didn't hear about this blogfest, as I can't imagine getting my wife to write something like this about me.
Lovely to hear from your wife even if it did cost you a dinner and a massage.
I wondered what my late husband would have said about me????????
You're right Jeremy - Kate who?
Will, sorry you missed this one.
Ted, I know!
Yvonne, the price we pay.. And I'm sure your husband would've said awesome things about you.
Great post! It's great to hear thoughts from our better halves, right?!
Alex, I would say, this lady is your true treasure.
She knows all the things that make you tick and loves you anyway...that is a treasure to have.
You are blessed and you recognize it. A Perfect Couple! How great is that?
She sounds sweet!
To heck with Kate, indeed! She sounds perfect :o)
Your right Alex, the two of you and your relationship feel eeirly similar to me and my wife. The introverted writer and outspoken better-half. Aren't we lucky?! I can tell that you are.
Thanks to you and your wife for taking part today. I certainly hope it was a good dinner! :)
Mary, we're perfectly something all right!
Dl, we are lucky! I think any man who can actually con a woman into marrying him should be eternally grateful.
She rocks my socks off! I have to say I'm loving all you guys who got your woman to say a few words about you!!! It's so neat!!!
I love her... who cares about Kate :)
ah, I was hoping to see a wedding picture or something ....
Greetings to Mrs. Cavanaugh!
That was a wonderful description of you, Alex. And funny too. "He wouldn't know what to do if he ever got her". :)
Cute idea for a blogfest!
You did not need to do the questions my friend. You have the lottery prize right there, no greener grass for you. :)
Look at that fest listing up there, lot of people love music :D
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
Awwwwww! Fantastic! I'm just loving reading about all our wonderful Blogging Buddies' partners! :)
She sounds fantastic, Alex. Lucky you; lucky her!
Hello there lovely wife of Alex J Cavanaugh!!!! Great to meet you!!! I think Alex is one special guy to have such a wonderful and amazing wife as you!!! You rock!!! Take care
It's amazing someone that charming puts up with you, Alex. Must have been some sort of bribery involved.
I love your wife's voice! We'd get along just fine.
Great job. (Oh, congrats on the book release!)
I want to know who Kate is too, lol.
Your SO sounds great! Congrats on your book.
She sounds wonderful! It's such a blessing to have a supportive, loving, and understanding (move over, Kate!) person in your life. So happy for you both!
Hey Alex, have you been able to view my blog since we realized there was a problem? Shoot me an email, if not. I'd be so sad if your visits were permanently over :(
it's completely believable that you're a perfectionist. Everything makes sense now!
Dear Alex's wife, Great job. This helps his BFs (blogger friends) know him a little better. I love funny and your post is also funny"...I’m aware of the Kate obsession. It’s okay, I don’t feel threatened. He wouldn’t know what to do if he ever got her".
I can hear how much he means to you and he's already told us how he feels about you.
Haha! Funny. :)
I've really enjoyed hearing from the better halves! And the husbands. *wink wink*
How lovely to hear more about you from an obviously very special person. You sound like a cool couple! Great post.
This was great, Alex! Thank your partner for me - so nice to hear her obvious admiration for you coming through.
Very nice to meet you Mrs. Cavanaugh! This is such a cool idea for a BF, I wish I had a partner who was willing to even read my blog (she isn't).
Mrs. Alex loves you :)
Enjoy the weekend.
Aww, this is sweet! :D
Netflix is awesome:) Great post!
Oh, this is so lovely, Alex. I feel I know you a wee bit better now. Thanks.
What will Kate say >:D
Cold As Heaven
WHOS KATE AY?
Alex, you are indeed a lucky man. Maybe you should add some flowers to that bribe.
Thoughts in Progress
Yes, to heck with Kate! you've got a keeper!
Hi Mrs. Cavanaugh. You did a great job, and I'm sure it meant a great deal to Alex. He's luck you have such a supportive other half. You should stop in again sometime!
What a lovely partner you have there!
Jen, she does rock!
Dezz, it's been so long, I don't think I could even find a wedding photo.
Kelly, she's probably right
Thanks, Jules. And yes, music fest is shaping up!
Talli, mostly lucky me.
Bryan, as I said, there were foot massages and a dinner involved...
Myne, that would be Kate Beckinsale.
Nicole, I plan to run through everything this afternoon - sorry, just haven't had a chance!
Falen, does it?
Teresa, she's really special!
Margo, we try to be cool.
Cold, Kate probably doesn't care!
BTN - Kate Becksinsale.
Mason, she's not a flower person, or I would've tried that.
Thanks, everyone. Yeah, she's awesome.
Wonderful support when someone steps out of their comfort zone for you. Very cool.
Awww she is great! This was such a lovely post, Alex, congratulations on having such a fantastic wife!
PS. You quite sure she's not a writer too? :-)
That's very cool. I've done guest blogs on Tim's site and it's a great deal of fun.
Happy Weekend and Eat Well.
Ah, so sweet.
How sweet! Definitely worth dinner and a foot massage! :)
Wonderful and supportive. How nice.
I agree- Kate is outmatched by your S.O. great post!
Such nice things to say about you! There's a good wife ~ :) (and I have Netflix AND Blockbuster subscriptions...)
This was so sweet. I don't think I could have gotten my wife to do this though. I guess I could have made up her response and really made myself look good.
Tossing It Out
You're a lucky man, Alex! (then again I know you feel the same about your wife, so she is lucky too)
This was so great, Alex. Your wife is awesome! Her comments were well worth the dinner and foot rubs.
She sounds awesome!!
Sangu, she knows how to help me with mine, that's for sure!
Donna, now that's dangerous!
Lee, we would've never known...
You're wife deserves some roses now. How sweet that interview was. You are a keeper, Alex.
I am having trouble finding the iBookstore to search for my book. I keep getting the buy iPad. Very confusing. If you have their URL I'd love it.
N. R. Williams, fantasy author
It's been fun reading all these SO posts--this is no exception! She sounds sweet. :)
Nancy, I go through my iPad, so can't help you there.
Golden, she is!
Your wife is great! And, you know what you can do if you meet Kate? Tell her you have a wonderful wife.
aw! That's the sweetest thing--you're a special man. :o) *snort* "wouldn't know what to do" w/her... ;p good one~
Great to hear the wife's take. But what does she have against nature specials? ha ha.
Your wife seems super sweet!
Awwww! Love this blogfest! The significant other love is radiating through the blogosphere and makes me happy!
Alex is one of the best! In fact, I just mentioned his upcoming blogfest over at my blog today.
Clarissa, I doubt I'll be able to form actual sentences at that point...
LTM - yeah, little fun poke at me!
Melissa, she likes nature specials - I'm the one who avoids them!
Ha! To heck with Kate indeed! Mrs Alex sounds wonderful, I love all these significant other posts I've read thus far, everyone has been so supportive! ;)
Have a lovely weekend Mr and Mrs Alex! ;)
Awww, very sweet and sentimental.
What a wonderful blogfest! Darn! If only I knew about this. *SIGH*
Your wife is a wonderful lady, Alex. I'm so glad for you both.
♥.•*¨ Elizabeth ¨*•.♥
Awe she sounds so lovely! Very supportive and kind!!
What a wonderful post! You're a lucky man, Alex!
Talei, thanks we will, and without Kate!
Awwww - what a sweetie! Love it :)
I almost snorted rootbeer at your Kate comment. Pretty awesome.
LOL! at your wife's comment about Kate. My wife says the same thing about me and Jessica Alba.
How can you even think about Kate with such a woman behind you?
A foot massage? Your wife and I think alike. I know my husband wants something when he gives me a foot massage.
Great post, I like this woman, she tells it like it is! Sounds like you two, compliment each other~ I think you need to buy her flowers, too~
The Kate comment, surprised me; YOU are funny! Nice to meet you~
It's nice to meet the both of you. I found you through the blogfest.
It sounds as though you genuinely support your live in writer. I can only imagine how hard it must be at times to live with such obsessed people. Thank you for participating in this wonderful blogfest.
And who doesn't have a crush on Kate? I know I do. ;)
Aww, I love this post. You're a lucky man, Alex. Sounds like she deserves dinner and foot rubs anyway, all the time. :)
Have a wonderful weekend,
Hi Alex and Mrs AC .. good to know that all is well with the Kate story & I can see you're very happily settled as you are - enjoy the weekend together .. cheers Hilary
Hmmm...to heck with Kate ha...;)
So this is the Alex writer and blogger from the words of his best half...:)
Nice knowing more about Alex..:)
She deserves the treats...from time to time...;)
I wish my sig other would post something on my blog about me. That was so sweet of her.
How do we know you didn't write that about yourself? Seems a little suspicious.
Jolene, now that would've been a sight!
Stephen, they know us too well.
Susan, and I'm pretty sure you can guess what he wants as well.
Ella, we jive well.
G - see? It's not just me!
Lola, don't give her ideas!
Amity, I try to give her treats as often as possible.
PTM - would I admit to the world I wouldn't know what to do with Kate if I had the opportunity?
Your wife is so sweet. You're very lucky. And I agree, you're very dedicated and out there commenting on everyone's blogs. You're great!
She is so sweet! Great post.
Awesome post; every word a true one too :) Thanks Mrs Alex (Alexette, perhaps?) :D
That was fun - it's great to hear a different perspective on you!
To heck with Kate indeed! You've got a supportive gem there, Alex! Love reading these! So mushy.
This blogfest is so great. Massages and dinner? Your lovely SO took it easy on you! This was a great post.
What a lovely post, Alex. You have a loving wife! :) And yes, to heck with Kate! LOL!
Jamie, it's true for her and that's what matters.
And it's not dog mush either, Terry!
Thanks Kari and Len!
Fun post. I can't even imagine what my husband would have written. Hmm, that's a thought for a post. "What would my significant other say?"
She sounds very sweet and supportive! Glad you have her to cheer you on, Alex!
Pure awesomeness. You are both well suited to each other. Nice to see when love works :)
Liza, you just might have to find out.
Julie and Donna, love does work!
Aw, that was so sweet!
She sounds just like I pictured her ;-)
She sounds just like I pictured her ;-)
This is so sweet! Who needs Kate?
