52 Blessings Project ~ Week 29

This Week I am Grateful For~ My Husband!

Saturday Tony and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary! It seems crazy to think it's been 11 years that we've been married and yet at times it seems we've been together forever.

He is by far my favorite person! He is my best friend! I have always felt as if he was a little gift from God just for me. I felt as if he was sent to me! I still feel that way.

I knew within less than a week that I would marry him. Our first date was on May 31 (his birthday) We were married on July 19! Less than two months of dating.We just knew.

Here are ten things that I love about my husband~

1.) He sings all the time. (and sometimes on key!)He would sing to me when we were dating and sometimes I would get irritated and just want him to shut up so I could just enjoy the song! There is a song by Trisha Yearwood that melts my heart today. He sung it to me and it was perfect for how I was feeling and I didn't even mind him singing it!

2.) He can tell you tell you the botanical name of any plant even if he doesn't know it! It seems as if he has a complete understanding of the Latin language (plantus coloramus~ It's not like I'm going to look it up!) But~ He really does know a freakishly large amount about plants

3.)Instead of looking at hot chicks on the computer(Porn) he is looking at fish. I think it is porn the way he gets excited! Yep, my husband is into fish porn and that is OK with me!

4.) He keeps showing me pictures of him with hair. He thinks he looks hot with hair. He doesn't realize I PREFER him bald! You're hot cue ball!

5.)He cries during sad parts of movies ~ You know like when Indie lost his whip

6.) Although he is large in stature he is soft at heart

7.)When I am down he is up. He is the Ying to my Yang (don't read too much into that...this is a clean blog suitable for children of all ages or maybe at least pg13)

8.)Unlike most men he is teachable. You know the old saying you can't teach a old dog new tricks? WRONG!!! I broke this puppy in from day 1! Bringing me my favorite bagel with cream cheese with a super big gulp. He is my house bitch OK, that's not nice but he is totally trained not to mention the fact that he does these things because he loves me so much. He makes me feel special!

9.)He loves our children. One of my favorite things about him is that he can make up a story about anything and entertain the kids. They beg him for stories. He has done this for 11 years now! He has loved my kids like his own. He has been their dad in every sense of the word even when their own dad wasn't. I am teary eyed thinking about this as I am typing it.

10.)He loves me for who I am . He loves me on big hair days and on good hair days. He loves me in fat years or in thin years. I am just as appealing either way. He loves me when we are poor or when we have a abundance. He loves me when I am happy or when I am medicated and trying to be. He loves me for who I am and tells me. That is why I love him!

All right for all you blogophiles who love looking into the deep dark corners of people's lives....this will distinguish my husband from yours.. He can fold his tongue into a four leaf clover! Very intriguing eh?

Ladies...Need I say more??? He's a great Kisser
We knew someone who called her husband their house bitch and we were shocked and yet we laughed our butts off in private! I like to tease Tony in private he is my house bitch...I think he might be horrified when he reads I wrote that. Ease up honey... just a little giggle between the two of us Ü
Every lucky wife needs one!

Congrats on 11 years! What a cute picture of you two. And I am a sucker for pictures of daddies with their sleeping babies. I probably have way too many of my own. I never get tired of them. Cute! And you're right. Everyone needs a good house bi---!
