Friday Flair- The Sappy Version

Today is my 25th wedding anniversary! Doesn't that make us seem old? (Yeah, between this and the glasses, I think I'm starting another midlife crisis. How many times can you do that?)

So in honor of today :
**Friday Flair** (woo woo!)

and at the end, a little bonus for the man I love!











25 reasons I love being married to The Brain
(this is an updated repost from awhile back)
  1. We laugh every day. Even when we fight, we laugh.
  2. The man can fix ANYTHING. With the right tool, he can absolutely fix it. Whatever it is.
  3. He goes one step past supportive, and actually encourages me in my goals.
  4. He asks if I'm okay before he asks if the car is okay.
  5. He owns several power saws, and knows how to use them.
  6. He genuinely likes being a dad, and being with the kids.
  7. He will watch The Amazing Race with me without complaint. Twice. In one night.
  8. He can get around in a foreign country.
  9. He knows which sacrament cup I want, and will swivel the tray to make it easy for me.
  10. He will climb just about anywhere to hide an Easter basket.
  11. He can smoke a world class brisket.
  12. He has never indicated in any way that his love for me is connected to my current weight.
  13. No swearing. Ever.
  14. He makes sure we have family prayer (almost) every day.
  15. He cheerfully eats whatever I make for dinner. Even if he already had it for lunch.
  16. He is willing to spend hours talking my 10 year old niece through a computer connecting problem, because she really really REALLY wants to play video games with him online.
  17. He insists on opening car doors for me.
  18. He knows that I really hate my feet touching any other feet in the universe.
  19. Unless they are cold.
  20. He always has access to chocolate.
  21. He even knows the good chocolate from the okay chocolate.... and when it doesn't matter.
  22. He loads a mean dishwasher.
  23. He actually likes camping with the scouts.
  24. He will get up in the middle of the night to open or close a window. (Even if he's not cold - - or hot.)
  25. I have felt loved every day for the past 25 years.

Congratulations on your 25th! That's truly exciting and sadly in this day in age, a rarity to reach 25! We'll be celebrating our 20th this year. Woot!

That Girl in Brazil said...

These are great - our anniversary was yesterday. ;o)

I noticed one of the flair is from the movie "Fireproof." Have you seen it?!

Nancy Face said...

HAPPY 25th!!!

I don't know if you intended for people to get teary eyed, but I did!

My Kris Face has a lot in common with your The Brain! :)

The day you got married, we'd been married almost a year and a half and I was about a month pregnant with my first baby! :)

Jennifer said...

Wow...I am so impressed. Many of these are the same reason we love him too....especially the chocolate, & the 10 year old.
