1/21/15 – Day 360: You Are Beautiful

I might have touched on this one before.

But today, I’d like to discuss a bit in detail some of the obvious and subtle ways that your beauty shines through.  We’re going to stick to the physical today. It’s part of the 10 Days of Tina for your 40th birthday.

Your freckles.

Your smile

Your laugh – it makes you light up.

Those legs.

Your style.

There are other things, but some of these things are best left between you and me. I gave you a card. You can read about ’em there.

I love you. You’re beautiful. You’re cute. You’re sexy. You’re incredible.


9/18/14 – The Falcons Killed the Buccaneers

Thursday September 18, 2014

What I love more about the Falcons destroying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is that you actually care that the Falcons destroy the Buccaneers. 🙂

You’re not an intolerant football wife. You actually get into it with me. I love that we can enjoy that together.

And on this particular evening, I was about to head out of town, so you were very sweet to me by letting me go out of town in the first place.

Thanks for being a football fan. It’s one of the things that puts you in the ‘cool chick’ category in addition to the awesome wife category.

8/17/14 – Day 203: The Random Broccoli and Cheese Soup Request

You called to ask for Broccoli and Cheese Soup when it was near 100 degrees outside.

I almost stopped at the drug store to buy a pregnancy test.

Such are cravings. 🙂

Day 170 – When heaven opened and poured out cheesecake

Day 170 – Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

One of our vendors takes us to the Cheesecake Factory every once in a while. Today, it happened.

A quick note – I hate how the Big Bang Theory makes the Cheesecake Factory look like it employs people from the Germany area of Epcot Center. I’ve never seen the waitstaff dress like Penny does in that show.

Anyway, as an excuse, I think, for her to buy her own self a cheesecake slice or three, our vendor always allows us to order a piece. And today, she let us order one for ourselves and our spouses.

So, we didn’t have to decide between Snickers and Reeses Cheesecake. We got both. It was awesome. We ate on those pieces of cheesecake for three days.

Day 155 – You Received a Trophy…

…for busting your a$$.

Or so you say.

You and your workout partner had a tough boot camp on this particular Monday, apparently.

I must say that your exercise consistency is a testament to two things:

  1. Your growing self-discipline (nice!)
  2. The power of accountability (glad you found A. so you can really challenge each other).

It’s both an inspiration and a challenge to me to build that type of a friendship into my life.

Good job, sweetie! Keep it going!

BTW, apparently I can’t break out of the 210s. Dang it!

6/26/14 – Day 151 – You’re Creative

Day 151 – Thursday, June 26th

You are more creative than you give yourself credit for.

While you might not feel HGTV-worthy, you know how to put little flourishes together to add a little flavor.

Our friends asked you to do the cupcakes for their boy’s 3rd birthday party.

He loves Batman.

You created this and I think it’s cool:
