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.

#2 - I love that you're Canadian. It gives me good material for corny jokes.

#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!

Happy Birthday, Lover!


  1. What a great post! I hope it's a wonderful day for you both. love your blog!

  2. Awwwwwww and happy belated birthday to Khale! Know what I love best about Khale? That he married Sarah and moved her to the Wyoming plains where, despite homesick moments where she craves a trip to Wal-mart and donuts, she has settled in quite nicely and become a delightful and trustworthy friend to Reagan.


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
