ten reasons why my husband is awesome.

10. He lets me talk him into stopping at random road side stands in the back woods of Alabama to try things like boiled peanuts.

9. He's patient with me even though I get bored and cranky at brewery tours and airplane museums.

8. He encourages me to keep going even when I'm yelling at him that I can't and it's too hard. Somehow he seems to know that I usually can.

7. He doesn't make fun of me when I want to be totally lazy, set up a ghetto rigged home entertainment center in our bedroom, and watch chick flicks all day.

6. He lets me drag him to cheesy photo ops and doesn't complain. Too much.

5. He doesn't get mad when I let my parents stinky Boston Terriers, Cookie and Lola, sleep with us when we visit. (Cookie is under the covers. Hogging all the leg room. Lola can't figure out what the big deal is.)

4. He loves me even though I totally think its funny to ruin his pictures by making weird faces.

3. He talks me into doing some of the craziest things. Things I never ever would've thought I could do. Like climbing Half Dome. And then he cheers me on after I rock it out like a pro.

2. I yelled out of the window of our limo, "I'M MARRIED!!", almost the whole way to the reception and he didn't even act embarrassed!

1. He knew me when I was in high school. Back when we wrote each other notes between 3rd and 4th hour. Back when he wasn't allowed in my bedroom without my dad's permission. And back when I didn't know about plucking my eyebrows. (Enough said.) And he still decided to stick it out for the long haul.

He's awesome because he knows what a huge nerd I am, what a snot I can be, and how I have a tendency to leave the dishes until they pile up and start growing fuzz, and he still loves me!

I don't think I could ask for a better Valentine.


  1. This is such a cute post, I hope you had a lovely valentines day! I really get the feeling looking at airplane museums and brewery tours - been there!

    Have a lovely day,

  2. What a super sweet post! :D And shouting out the window of the limo the whole way to the reception? Awesome and super adorable! XD
