Do you want to know what I love the most about my husband?

Some people probably think that it's because he's organized and clean enough to keep me from drowning in my own lazy insanity, and I DO love that about him.

Some might think it's because he's the kind of guy who can pull off being a Coach and Choir Director at the same time. (Also a plus)

Others might think it's because he's the kind of guy who owns multiple bowties and loves to wear them. (I'm a bit fond of them myself when he wears them.)

You might think it's because he is full of what seems to be an infinite amount of random trivia (sports, history, current events - chances are, if you're talking about it, he knows some obscure fact that's relevant). (I'll be honest, I'm banking on him using THIS skill to win us some money on Jeopardy.)

I do love ALL of those things about my husband. He's a bit OCD, very professional and can lean toward the "too serious" side from time to time.

But what I love the MOST about him is that he can be ALL of those things and still be the guy with whom this happened:

The morning alarm goes off, I crawl out of bed and barely have my eyes open when I see the look of ridicule on his face and realize it's aimed at my hair.

Me: "I can't help it if my hair doesn't sleep well."

Hubs: "Sleep WELL?!? It doesn't look like it sleeps AT ALL. It looks like it parties all night!"

THAT, my friends, is what I love about him.

It's all about the contrasts. :)

Love & Shipoopies,

He must be a great guy if he can be hilarious that early in the morning!
I really like your list of what you love about him--not the run-of-th-mill type list, but the I-really-know-and-love-this-man type list.

You gotta love a smart-alik! :)

Thanks, Camily! And yes, Myya, he is one, but I love him mostly because I'm a bigger one. :) haha!
