Man is it nice to see Friday this week. Am I right or am I right? Sorry for the silence yesterday, but between an upgrade at work, teaching three BODYPUMP classes -- two being launch classes -- plus wedding dress deciding with Sportyspice [we have a DRESS] and you know, life, there was no time for le blog. Normally I have time to blog at least during lunch but I had to write my vacay recap all at home after teaching on Tuesday and I was not in the mood for it Wednesday night. Oh, and don't forget the hit and run on my CAR IN A PARKING LOT LAST NIGHT! Sheesh, I tell you some people are just rude, rude, rude. No one was hurt and someone left a note with the other car's info, but man, talk about a downer after a fun wedding dress moment. I may have to figure out a new schedule until I get into a new work and BODYPUMP groove, so stay with me pretty please?!
Anyway, on to today's favorites. In honor of Le Husband's birthday this Sunday, I thought I'd dedicate my five Friday favorites to the birthday guy. He's one swell husband and I want to celebrate him by highlighting some of my most favorite things about him and his personality. #mushypost #gottabragonhimsometimes #yaybirthday
What I love about Le Husband ...
His athleticism: Dude is a flat out athlete. Seriously one of the best I've ever seen. He rarely looks awkward doing anything physical -- although there is yoga, ha -- and if he isn't great at it the first time you better believe by the second, third or fourth he has it on lock down. In our kickball world he's one of the top players and is constantly sought after at the end of every year. At times it can be quite intimidating, especially when he's trying to teach me something new and I'm not getting it right away, but 90% of the time it drives me to be better athletically. And it's always nice when he has an incredible play to think, "Yup, that stud's my man"!
His drive: Le Husband wants to be the best at everything he does so he goes all in all the time. Part of me is sad I never saw him play baseball in college or in the minors, I would have loved to see him in his prime in HIS sport. There is part of me though that is glad we didn't know each other back then, because he has LASER focus and I've heard stories about how baseball was numero uno over everything, even girls, ha. Whether it's his job, baseball, kickball, or weight lifting, Le Husband goes after every goal with tenacity and hard work and is just a flat out hustler. I know no matter what we will be fine in life because he will always get the job done to the best of his abilities.
His love of cooking: In most of my previous relationships I was the chef. I was in charge of dinner and picking out food and every now and then I'd get some help or suggestions. Le Husband came into the relationship with some great cooking skills and together we've honed them into 'chef' skills and love spending time together in the kitchen. Our meals have become a lot more healthy since we were married and it's fabulous having someone to bounce ideas off of and help cooking new recipes in the kitchen. Our love of food and cooking sometimes makes me laugh because we constantly talk about a HUGE kitchen in a teeny house, just because we know what we need to make it work. Hopefully we can tape a fake cooking show for y'all one day, I would love to show you what goof balls we can be together.
His laugh: Le Husband has the best laugh in the world. Okay, maybe I'm biased, but I love his laugh. Since he's a quiet guy, his big chuckle and laugh kind of catches you off guard. I love making him laugh when I say something dumb or do something silly. We are both big goofballs and I truly enjoy giggling, chuckling and laughing through life together.
How he supports me: I'll be honest, it took me awhile to understand Le Husband's support style. We are drastically different in the Love Languages [I am a BIG words of affirmation person and he's not at all] so not HEARING support used to make me frustrated. But then I noticed the new shoes I needed because my shins started hurting, the quiet cheers when I went up to kick during games, the 'that a girls' at the gym when I reached a new PR [along with the rare butt smacks a la dude sports] and too many to count meals cooked and cleaned up when I'm not feeling the greatest. He's been a huge supporter during this whole BODYPUMP process and has come to EVERY scheduled class of mine [yes even the 6amers]. He doesn't write me sonnets, but he shows me his love and support in his own way.
Happy, happy, happy birthday, my love. You are truly my best friend and I wish you nothing but happiness on your special day. This year is OUR year and I'm so excited to walk through life with you by my side. To the moon and back. < 3
Hope y'all have a great weekend. Catch you bright and early Monday morning < 3!
