Birthday Stuff

We have a birthday in our house today! My sweet hubby just turned 25! And doesn't he look SO good for his age? Birthdays are super fun at our house. Mainly cuz we're super fun people. I planned this oober sweet party with some friends. It's totally the party you ALWAYS wanted when you were like 7. It's gonna be so great! (I'll post pics)


Jack's my favorite person in the entire world. He knows I love him for so many reasons. So I'll say DITTO to my mom's words and share some of my favorite memories with him.

-A couple years ago we took a road trip to Canada. One of the funnest vacation ever. Anyway, at one point in the road trip we were driving through Idaho or Montana- some baren patch of land- listening to Brian Reagan. It was after 2am, we were exhausted, we hadn't eaten anything but licorice and peanut m&m's for hours and there we were, holding hands and laughing our butts off. It was one of those moments when I stepped back and said, "Wow, I really love this guy".

-When Jack and I were dating we spent most of our "dates" at one of our houses. We watched some incredibly awful movies. Did a bunch of smooching. And talked a lot. One of my favorite memories of us dating was dancing in his parents front room. Jack is really into music and would always play me CD's and we'd dance. He'd sing me songs while we danced and I always thought it was so romantic. I always wanted to marry a romantic guy. Moments like that made me realize, "Wow, I really love this guy".

-Jack is SO talanted when it comes to the guitar. He can sit down and play a song without even looking at the chords. He just kind of figures it out in his head. It's crazy. I love listening to him play. Sometimes he'll sing me to sleep. He'll bring his guitar in and just play till I fall asleep. Moments like that make me think "Wow, I really love this guy".

-Jack is SO helpful when it comes to "womans" work. He vacuumes, does laundry, mops, washes dishes, scrubs bathtubs, dusts, cooks, EVERYTHING. I feel like we're really a team. If I ask him to do something he just does it. Most days the house is spotless when I get home from work. And if people are coming over and I don't have time to pick up I know he's gonna pick up my slack. It's great. When I see him on his hands and knees scrubbing our bathtub, or mopping our kitchen floor while I watch, or making me sit on the couch while he cooks dinner... those are moments when I know "Wow, I really love this guy"

-For our very first Valentines Day Jack bought candles, wine glasses, and a table cloth. He blindfolded me and drove me around Ephraim till we ended up at our destination. He led me into McDonalds where he had set up a table in the back corner. It was SO adorable. People mocked him when he told the story later, but it was seriously so cute. It was perfect. We ate dinner by candlelight and then went home and cuddled on the couch and watched Ghost. The fact that he went to all that work to make valentines special for me reminds me that "Wow, I really love this guy".


Happy Birthday Jack .

Just so you know, I really love you.
