Happy Early Valentine's Day Babies

Okay usually I write about things relating to kids or the trials and joys of being a Mom, but due to Valentine’s Day coming up this weekend, I wanted to dedicate a post about my husband, my rock and my best friend.


So here you are honey. Here are the 150 reasons why I love you. Happy EARLY Valentine’s Day to you.

  1. You are logical. If it makes logical sense you don’t care that I do whatever, but when it is not realistic you bring me back down to Earth.
  2. You know every secret about me and I mean every one…even the really really embarrassing ones and you didn’t laugh…too much.
  3. You know exactly what I love to eat even before I know that I like it. You just know my taste buds. Thanks honey for introducing me to Chipotle…I think.
  4. You never try to push the envelope or get me to do something I don’t want to do. I can say no just once and you listen, which brings me to…
  5. You listen.
  6. You are so quiet and I found out that you like hearing me talk (that was a surprise to me) and you let me jabber on about anything. I guess that sort of goes with #5, but you let me talk your ear off.
  7. You are very funny.
  8. Behind closed doors and once in a while out in public you are the silliest guy I know.
  9. You are far more graceful then I am.
  10. You are an amazing cook and you cook even when you are tired or cook things that you can’t eat because of your diet but make it for me.
  11. Even if is the tenth millionth time you have told me something, you can tell me again with such patience as if it was the first time. How do I put the liner in the trashcan again so the stupid thing doesn’t fall through?
  12. You can tell me if I look horrible in something and without being mean. A lot of guys would just say “you look fine.”
  13. I love your hair. I once wished I had hair like yours but I have enough difficulty styling my straight hair.
  14. You love surprising me with things. How many times have I come home and our house has either been cleaned, redesigned or reorganized. Thanks hon for organizing my closet.
  15. You look amazing in hats.
  16. I love your laugh. Its genuine.
  17. You know how to get me to laugh.
  18. You are a fantastic dancer. Can I say Uncle Luke? Makes me smile every time I think about it.
  19. You are an amazing Dad. You want everything under the moon for our son. You let him do things that are safe, but I would never try. That’s why kiddos need their Fathers because Moms can be overly protective some times.
  20. For the most part you don’t mind what I plan during the weekend for us. If I want to go to some place, then we just go.
  21. You still have that amazing ability to make me giddy. I still look at you like a teenager in love but love you deeply like a wife loves her husband.
  22. You have seen me on my worst days and still love me.
  23. You have seen it all and by all I mean you watched a child come out of me and you coached me the entire time.
  24. The scar near your eyebrow…so sexy.
  25. You are willing to do just about anything for me including getting hamburgers at 10 o’clock at night from Wendy’s.
  26. You eat with grace. Is that silly? Our eating habits reminds me of the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, in which one scene Beauty is eating delicately while the Beast is scarfing up his food and yes I would be the Beast.
  27. You will go and fix stuff while I would probably hire somebody or call my Dad.
  28. You are fine with and don’t think its annoying that I don’t want anything to do with purchasing electronics or dealing with car stuff.
  29. If I ask you if you could please do something then you will do it.
  30. You don’t get frustrated overly my nontechnical skills.
  31. The sincereness of your eyes when you are truly sorry. Yes hon, I know the difference.
  32. You will watch most girly movies with me and then admit that you like some of them. I don’t push the Jane Austen envelope though and I think you appreciate that.
  33. You know who Mr. Darcy is.
  34. I don’t think I could ever really surprise you. You would look at me the same as if I was wearing my usual clothes from work or wore a monkey suit home. Okay…maybe you would raise one eyebrow, but then continue doing whatever you are doing. It is hilarious to me, because I do try to see your reactions and I always get the same one.
  35. You have the most beautiful green eyes I have ever seen…aside from our sons.
  36. You really are a great friend to all of your friends.
  37. You are persistent. I have to love this because this is why we are together.
  38. Your confidence. Its one of the top things that I want our son to learn from you.
  39. You have a cute butt. No seriously you do.
  40. You ice skate very well.
  41. The look in your eyes when our Pumpky does something cute or new. It’s a look only a loving Father could give. Remember all those kisses he gave you at Leesburg Outlet this past weekend?
  42. When you are excited, you are really excited. I can clearly remember the day you found out we were having a boy.
  43. The interaction with you and our little guy rather you are playing, teaching him something new or feeding him.
  44. Your determination to be a great Dad to our kid and other future kiddos.
  45. Saving my life about a million times from people that nearly cream us while driving.
  46. You know exactly what I am thinking about most of the time and ask what I am thinking about if you can’t figure it out.
  47. If I say I want something from say Taco Bell, you know exactly what I want without me telling you the order. You just remember things like that.
  48. In general all the TMI stuff that I won’t go into, which would add at least twenty more reasons on why I love you.
  49. You dress well. I honestly wish you could be my stylist because I never know what to put on.
  50. You understand my quirks, like not wanting to drive in the snow.
  51. I still have a lot to learn about you.
  52. Even if some of the food I make is crappy…you will eat it anyways and tell me how you appreciate it. Remember the first time I attempted French toast?
  53. You respect my and our little guys religion.
  54. I love the fact you are Russian. It is an extra perk about you. I love hearing you speak, listening to the stories about when you lived there and you introducing me to some of the foods.
  55. You know how to calm me down when I am completely freaking out.
  56. Every now and then you surprise me with opening doors or giving me flowers. You are right when you say if you did it every so often versus every day that I would appreciate it more and I really do.
  57. You are so attentive.
  58. You skills on wheeling and dealing. I don’t want to hear it because I get embarrassed but I love that you can because I sure can’t.
  59. When push comes to shove, you don’t care what anyone thinks, you will do what is best for your family and everyone else can shove it.
  60. You forgive full heartedly.
  61. The ability for you to reason on when I am being over sensitive versus something truly being done wrong to me. I value your words on that because it is hard for me to judge some times.
  62. Your love of sports.
  63. This goes along with your patience and ability to dive right into a situation, but I love that you were able to take care of Pumpky and I the first week we brought him home with hardly any help AND you didn’t seem overwhelmed.
  64. If I tell you I really want something, then you will eventually get it for me. That makes me sound completely spoiled, but really its mostly small things that mean a lot to me.
  65. How strong you are. I still can’t believe you were able to take down that huge asian book shelf from the upstairs to the downstairs by yourself.
  66. You have never yelled at me. This may sound silly to put on a list, but after eight years you would think that it would have happened. Yelling to you is raising one octave to me. It isn’t yelling my love.
  67. Our daily emails. I look forward to them, especially when you write me first.
  68. Your love of animals.
  69. You are willing and fine with in regards to listening to silly kid music.
  70. I don’t think this is too TMI, but you are an amazing kisser.
  71. I can only think of one instance when I embarrassed you. It was at the Outer Banks and we all got a good laugh at, even you laughed.
  72. You take time to teach me new things.
  73. You entertain me when I ask you to tell me a story.

  77. You stand up for your family.
  78. You are willing to try new things.
  79. You will make stops after work even though you hate it just because I asked.

  81. Your smell.

  84. Your care for others. For instance, like shoveling our neighbors walk because her husband is out of town and she has two young kids.
  85. Being okay with me being a little gross some times.
  86. Your hugs.

Thanks love. I bet that took awhile to write. As you know I can never write something like that, so I would just have to spoil you with some present for valentines day. It's like that commercial, "because I'm not that guy". Thanks for writing and sharing that with me. Love... Hubby
