Why I'm Marrying Him

Everyone thinks their husband/fiancé/boyfriend is the best ever and I'm sure you guys have some great ones but mine is by far the best ;)

As much as he hates taking pictures, he lets me take them whenever we're doing something fun that I want to document!

He loves Zuko. As much as he hates to admit it, sometimes. He really loves that guy. For example, over the weekend Zuko broke his water bowl that we keep on a side table and he's been trying out a bunch of different options so Zuko will have enough water and will stop pushing it off the table! 

Yes, you've seen this before but it's honestly one of my favorite pictures of these two!

And here's the main reason I felt compelled to write this post today - 

May 4 was my birthday and we were at a wedding for the weekend. Needless to say, there was no birthday celebrating for me. Sad panda. The next weekend (this past Saturday) we had mentioned going out with friends but I ended up getting so sick and his parents invited us over for a Mother's Day cookout. 

I didn't get out of bed Saturday until after 1p because I felt so sick and absolutely did not want to go. He kept telling me once I was up and showered, I'd feel better and I was getting so mad that he wouldn't let me out of going. 

He leaves to go pick up a card for his mom and I finally got up to shower. Afterwards, I still didn't feel better and I was falling asleep sitting on the couch when he walks in and sits these in front of me. 

I assumed it was because I didn't feel well. Regardless of the reason, I was blown away. Christian has never brought me flowers in the last 4 years. None. He much prefers taking me to dinner or a movie instead of "wasting" money on flowers. His words, not mine. And not always my viewpoint either. 

After dinner at his parents, he walks out a big giant cake with sparkly candles on it. And I didn't get a picture because I was so surprised. 

 I joked with him that there were only 6 candles on it and I wasn't turning 6. His explanation was that the other sparkly candles were ugly so he used all the nice sparkly candles because he knew I would like the sparkles better. He also got my perfect cake: 3 layer chocolate cake with fudge between the layers and thick chocolate icing! 

Come to find out, as we were leaving his parents, he felt bad because we're not really going to get to celebrate my birthday at all - wedding, Mother's Day, I work this weekend, next weekend my brother graduates from high school and then the month is pretty much over. 

As small as flowers and a cake may seem, I was blown away because he's always been so against buying flowers (even though he knows I like them) that he went out of his way to buy me flowers and cake just to make me feel special and loved. 

And I can't wait for 100 more years being spoiled by the sweetest man I know. And don't worry, I'll be spoiling him, too!

I think he needs to give my hubby a lesson! My husband also takes the view that flowers are a waste of money and usually I agree but once in a while it's nice to be surprised with some beautiful flowers!
