He has a Ph.D. in bein' swell

We have this awesome tradition of on our actual birthday going out and getting every possible free thing people give out on birthdays.  We're not as gung-ho about it as we used to be now that we have kids (or this year our printer was out of ink).... so we didn't go to some places we usually do (red robin, coldstone, to name two).  Sure, you can sometimes go on another day other than your birthday but we think its fun to just make a day of it!  Well, as much free junk food as we can stand anyway.  Tony celebrated his birthday this month and this year we got his free bday meal at Joes, Firehouse, and Golden Spoon frozen yogurt (he didn't want his free dessert at Tia Rosa's... can't imagine why he didn't want complete strangers singing "we wish it were our birthday so we could party too" to him.  You don't like the whole restaurant straining their necks to look at you all red-faced in your booth, eh Tony?  I think it's worth it! ...even if it is just a tablespoon of freezer burned vanilla bean ice cream and squirt of redi-whip.  It's my birthday, I deserve it!  (well, I guess it's.. Tony's birthday..we're.talkingabout..)

My husband is hands down THE most perfect guy for me.  I have loads of reasons why I love him- more than I could possibly list but I'll list {some} here today seeing is, we just celebrated his birthday (1-11-11...whoa nelly check out that date).

things i  about him:
-he rocks.  Like, literally.  He plays the guitar (plus sings beautifully) and used to be in a band (ok.um.HOT) that alone won me over.  Okay not really that alone- but it didn't hurt (;
-speaking of music, he wrote me my very own song that I will always cherish.  In fact, whenever we "quarrel" I think of it and it makes me all giddy like a school boy.  Or newlywed.
-He changes ALL of Brody's diapers, wakes up when Brody does so I can sleep more (if I'm still in bed), and makes Brody breakfast and lunch (when he's home) just to help me out.
-randomly does the dishes and is so good at asking if certain things can be put in the dryer (he knows I follow the directions on the tag like it's my 2nd religion).
-gives back massages spontaneously
-CRACKS me up.  Seriously Tony is the funniest person I know (besides me, obvi.)
-super hardworking
-spiritual- reminds me to read our scriptures every day
-gives me great advice and perspective on things
-reads my blog.  As in... every single post.  I asked him once why and he said "i like your blog!" (Aw)
and one of my favorites...
-always happy.

He really is always happy!  I love you TONY!
