It's my husband's birthday today! And in honor of that momentous occasion involving foreceps 26 years ago, I comprised a list of 26 things I love about my best friend, Khale Lenhart.
#1 - I love that the only time I've ever seen you cry was the first time you held our daughter in your arms.
#3 - I love that the first time you said, "I love you" was less than a week after we started dating. And that you blurted it out in front of my brother. :)
#4 - I love how u read TEXT written on facebooooook!!!! exactly how someone has typed it, typos and all.
#5 - I love how passionate you are about hockey and politics. Never underestimate the sexiness of a nerdy athlete. Never.
#6 - I love how much better you are at tucking Lillian into bed at night than I am.
#7 - I love that you've always supported my goals and dreams. And that you gave me the nudge and encouragement to change majors from interior design to teaching.
#8 - I love that you're my BFF. Always.
#9 - I love how you work hard and never complain about it.
#10 - I love that on our one-month dating anniversary, you announced, "I'm going to marry you, Sarah" as if I had no say in the matter whatsoever.
#11 - I love how well you get along with everyone in my family. But I guess that's what happens when you marry your best friend's little sister.
#12 - I love your dance moves to Garth Brooks. "As the shots rang out down the Rio Grande!"
#13 - I love that when you were a little boy, you wrote and illustrated an award winning book about dinosaurs.
#14 - I love that you're the only person in the world who can make me laugh really hard when all I want to do is cry.
#15 - I love that cute way you talk when giving public speeches. Even if you don't.
#16 - I love that you read more than any other person I know. And that they're rarely works of fiction.
#17 - I love how blue your eyes are. And how they sparkle when you're about to crack a joke.
#18 - I love how you speak in a baby voice when talking to or about dogs, but not babies.
#19 - I love that we've never had a fight. Besides your infamous tickle attack fights.
#20 - I love our random conversations. Me: "Sometimes you remind me of Teddy Roosevelt..." Khale: "Are you trying to be sexy or something?" Me: "What?!" Khale: "I don't know - I thought it was some sort of pickup line."
#21 - I love how much you enjoy learning. And that you're constantly finding new things to learn about.
#22 - I love that you have no idea what "golden brown" means in baking terms.
#23 - I love that I get to grow old with you.
#24 - I love that you're man enough to take our daughter to Disney princess movies and enjoy every minute of it.
#25 - I love that you think that I'm an exceptional cook. You sure know how to make a girl's heart melt. :)
#26 - I love that 26 years ago your parents brought you into this world and raised you to be an incredible man. Thanks Terry and Crystal!
