Today is a special day in the Near home since today is Chris' birthday. And also noteworthy is that it is also David Hasselhoff's birthday, who just happens to be Chris' idol.
In honor of Chris' birthday, we'll be having some delicious Papa John's pizza (that's what he requested- I guess that shows how great my cooking is) and a special cake. And Brendan will be preparing a special song on the harmonica for him. What could be better than that!?
But really, I have an amazing husband who takes such good care of me and Brendan. He's a great person inside and out, and I'm extremely lucky. Here are a few reasons why:
1. His jokes are really lame but also hilarious. He's really a funny guy- just read his posts.
2. He has a great memory- especially when it comes to obscure theme songs to random TV shows. It's really quite remarkable.
3. He's determined. When he couldn't remember how to solve his Rubik's Cube, he looked it up in his journal (which had detailed instructions from his mission days), emailed his friend Zach for some help, and even researched it on the Internet. I don't think he ever got it though...
4. He lets me do just about anything I want. He even put up with me when I bought pink sheets for our bed. He wasn't happy about it but he was wise enough to go along with it. Those sheets have since been discarded. I don't know what I was thinking. And, he'll play Boggle with me even though he HATES it. That's love.
All kidding aside, Chris is great for many many many reasons. He's a devoted father, a very sweet husband (who really does have to put up with a lot with me) and he's my rock. I've never known anyone who is so faithful and trusting as he is. When I seem to falter, he's there to help me and keep me going. I really do have it all.
So happy birthday, Chris. Love you.
