Thursday Thirteen

I know I said I was going to rotate Thankful Thursday & the Thursday Thirteen, but what can I say...I'm easily distracted. So, today's Thursday Thirteen is titled as follows.

13 Reasons That I Love This Guy

1. He loves the beach. I mean LOVES the beach. And he's not afraid to be photographed building sandcastles (by himself).

2. He loves being a great dad. And he is a GREAT dad! My girls are so lucky to have him as a role model.

3. He doesn't complain one bit about all the chick t.v. that I subject him to. He sits quietly and watches Grey's Anatomy, Top Chef and Kathy Griffin without so much as a whimper.

4. He's not afraid to take risks. He steps out of his comfort zone more times than he probably realizes and comes out smelling like a rose, more often than not.

5. He tells his guy friends about my blog and actually encourages them to read it. (Hi Daniel!)

6. He is a very giving person. He tries so hard to please people and very rarely says no when something is asked of him.

7. He encourages me to go have time with my friends while he takes charge of the kids. Even if he's had a really bad day at work and it's the last thing that he wants to do. And he does it with a smile.

8. He is very handy! This week, he built a shelving unit in our bathroom. And my tomato garden is thriving! Thankfully, he's getting much better about finishing projects that he starts. :-) I think my bad habits have rubbed off on him over the years.

9. He has the most beautiful blue eyes that I've ever seen and he passed them on to our daughters. His eyes are one of the first things that I fell in love with.

10. He is very athletic and excels at every sport that he tries. Nothing makes my heart swell with pride more than seeing him being rewarded for another job well done.

11. He is incredibly humble. He doesn't like to be the center of attention, despite the fact that he's constantly doing things that are attention-worthy.

12. He is who he is and he makes no apologies for it.

13. He loves me for who I am and doesn't try to change me. No matter what the situations have brought over the years, he's always been a rock, unwavering in devotion to our marriage and I know that no matter what this life brings, he will be there to see it through.

With Father's Day coming up this Sunday, I thought this would be a great time to emphasize just how much I love my hubby for all that he is, especially, an amazing partner and father to our kids. I guess this is a Thankful Thursday after all.

I love it when people blog about how much they love their husbands! He sounds like a sweetie. You did good, girl.

Thanks Heather! He's definitely a sweetie and I love to brag about him!

Awww...this is so nice. And I just made my hubby blog about himself :-) We are leaving tomorrow for Texas...and leaving DH at home alone for Father's Day (which so would be my choice for a Mother's Day!)...but I need to think of something to blog about for Sunday (and not to mention today...tomorrow...everyday...).

Awwwww!! What a great hubby (and daddy!!)

Angie said...

Kat: I'm with you on the "solo" mother's day. That would be my idea of a perfect gift!

Angela: Amen sister!
