Warning: This Special Birthday Entry is Written by Chas! (gasp!)

Sooo, you probably weren't expecting me to ever author a post on this fine blog, were you? (despite the fact that it's URL bares my name...and my mug is plastered all over these parts) But guess what, neither was I! And while I've never expected (or aspired) to write a post on this blog, it was basically impossible for me to pass up on Sam's request for me to do a guest-birthday-post for her, my wondrous wife, while we're on our fun-filled special vacation in Oregon. So here goes nothing...aka lots of gushing for the greatest gal in the world!! So without further ado, let the gushfest commence!

First of all, Happy Birthday, Sammy Girl! My dearest, sweetest, beautiful wife!

Now I feel that a list is in order... of let's say... 26 reasons--that I can share with the bluplic (that's blog public for those who aren't yet down with the lingo)--of why I love and appreciate you so very much.
(These are in no particular order.)

#1: You are so good to me.

#2: You look like this:


(Bangin'!)

#3: You believe in me, encourage me, and support me.  In all my endeavors.

#4: Sometimes you talk in the cutest-little-innocent-pup voice I can hardly stand it. Really, it slays me.

#5: You want to be the mother of my children.

#6: There is so much creativity, love, depth and happiness in your amazing art work; so much of what you are all about.

#7: You inspire me to be my very best self.

#8: You run the greatest blog in the whole wide world.

#9: Babe! You. Are. Hilarious! (case and point.) Brilliant.

#10: SNUGS!

#11: You are patient with me when I'm forgetful and/or absent-minded.

#12: Because of you, sometimes I paint and draw. But I'm pretty sure I never would channel this creativity if you weren't there by my side doing the same and encouraging me. Thank you, Sam.

#13: We make yummy din dins and treats together. You make yummy din dins for me... (or you clean up the dins dins that I make).

#14: You enjoy a good documentary. With me. (Goes for all other films, too.)

#16: You appreciate me. Even when I'm being rather silly. You even remember the silly things I say and do and bring them up later so we can have a good laugh (when I've but all forgotten about them).

#17: We love eating out equally.

#18: We hate grocery shopping equally.

#19: You say your prayers and read your scriptures. You trust in the Lord.

#20: You come from a most wonderful family.

#21: You appreciate my family.

#22: You like raps. And have memorized some of them. (Um, yeah, that's kinda hot.)

#23: You get things DONE, baby! So well! So efficient! So amazing!!

#24: You have very cute clothes and stellar style. (You just showed me three very adorable outfits. And I wouldn't put it past you if you've already quoted me in a post to come before this post goes up, because I just said, "Babe, that outfit is photo shoot worthy!" Yeah, we probably already did the photo shoot, too. [See #23] )

#25: You have the sweetest nature. You simultaneously have a sensitive soul and an amazing inner strength few can match. You've got integrity and depth, my love! You are amazing.

#26: YOU LOVE ME, TOO!!

I love you both soooo much. Happy Birthday Sam! This was so fun to read and I know it's all true. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I've never been happier at a wedding as much as I was at yours. (Even more than my own!) The perfect marriage and the perfect couple.

Kristina said...

This is so sweet and adorable! Goodness! :) Love it! Happy Birthday!!

Annie said...

This is adorable and you are clearly made for each other.
Some of these remind me of me and my husband as well. Like "snugs" We call them the "snuggies." And for dinner instead of "din dins" it's "food(s)."
Hope you two are living it up and partying hard enough for all of us! Happy Birthday Sam!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Okay, I just couldn't read this much adorable cuteness from the hubby and not comment....he is definitely a KEEPER!!! I don't think I would need anything else for my birthday after a sweet love note like that! Okay, that is a big fat lie, I would still need presents, but that would be a darn good one! Happy Birthday, girl, hope it was amazing!

Cindy said...

This is cuter than a room full of baby pandas, baby salukis, baby huskys, AND MORE baby pandas.

I'm so happy that you two are so in love with one another. It really gives me hope that one day things will work out for myself.

Hope Oregon is treating you well! Chas, you just caused someone to follow you two...hahaha
