Happy Birthday to the hubby!

Today is Jeff's birthday so I thought it appropriate to write about him. Happy birthday Jeff!

Here are just a few things I love about my husband:

1). He has to ask me how old he is. Every year. He was relieved when I told him he was NOT turning 35 this year.
2). Though he hates social media, he has a Twitter account and is addicted to following people (mostly sports related). The act of "tweeting" however would be participating in social media, which he does NOT do, obviously.
3). He tells me my cooking is good. Since pinterest has entered the world I try a LOT of new recipes...99.9% vegetarian. Only once has he told me: "Maybe no more kale this week, honey." I appreciate that.
4). I especially love how he gets up early with the nugget on the weekends after a full week of work, just so I can sleep an extra couple hours. He's the best I tell you.
5). And finally, he gave me Cooper. Our greatest joy, proudest accomplishment and most expensive valuable asset.

"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life." -Rita Rudner

“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” ―Friedrich Nietzsche

Honey, it is my privilege to annoy you day in and day out. You truly are my greatest friend.


P.S. You are 34.
P.P.S. This is your LAST year in your mid-thirties.
P.P.P.S. I will ALWAYS be younger than you. Like, forever.


  1. Happy birthday Jeff!! Missed getting to celebrate with y'all this year. I think that means we need a trip Mastros with butter cake in our future!!

  2. How sweet Lauren. You are both fortunate to have one another. Love you guys.
