what a man...

what a man, what a mighty good man, what i mighty mighty good man. come on sing it with me now, salt n peppa baby!

what a good man i have! on this very happy very uneventful valentines day i would like to just take a moment and talk about my boy my, "little ian". i am such a lucky, and blessed girl to have this man as my wonderful husband, why? because my husband does something wonderful for me 365 days out of the year, going on almost 7 years now! i was thinking in bed the other night about what a good boy i have and how much i love him. as i laid there thinking about ian i thought that i should really write it down, i should share how greatful i am. here is why i am so happy:

i love ian because he loves me! ian from day 1 has not been shy about the way he has felt. i have loved that he has always been so honest with how he feels, about our relationship. i have always appreciated this, there was no beating around the bush.

i love ian because when we first started dating he was working with a quadriplegic bernie. seeing ian work with him made me fall so fast for him. i know that it was his job, but i know he also loved it. he fed bernie, did his hair etc.. i loved when they came in to the pizza factory and i could watch when he didn't know i was watching, he loved bernie and thought of him as a good friend and i loved him for it.

i love ian because he's a hard worker i loved when we first met he had not one but 2 jobs!

i love ian because he did not want, or expect me to stop persuing my education to put him through school. i loved that i was able to finish school (i know i still have those spainish classes but still) i love that he worked hard and sacrificed his studying time in grad school to work so that i could take classes too. i love that he thinks i'm smart, because sometimes i wonder!

i love ian because he is a snuggler!

i love ian because he's so good, such a good example, so knowledgeable about the gospel. i love that he likes to do what's right.

i love ian because he always knows where he's going when we're driving. it's helpful when we are in a big city or a new place.

i love ian because he's so madly in love with our kids and says that he doesn't even care that we don't have any boys.

i love ian because if he walks in the door and i have my running clothes on and am ready to walk out he never complians, and will even make dinner while i'm gone.

i love ian because he dishes me up ice cream every night after we put the girls down for bed.

i love ian because he likes to shop! i love it, some of our favorite past times is shopping. i also like that i have never have to worry about what he's going to look like when we leave the house. i love that he sometimes suprises me with new clothes too! i always love what he picks out.

i love ian becuase he never minds serving me, and when he tells me he doesn't mind i believe it.

i love ian because he does a good job at letting me beat him at games so i can win things like back rubs.

i love that ian has woken up with our girls every night that they have woken up in the middle of the night. he is still doing this with peyton, she cries he gets out of bed and goes up stairs and gives her to me to feed.

i love that ian always comes to the girls dr.'s appointments and mine too . whether it's while i'm pregnant, or the girls are getting shots, he'll even take work off. i don't even have to ask he just comes!

i love ian because he sings with riley when he puts her down for bed. he just taught her, "families can be together forever."

i love ian because he is so stinkin hot! i remember our first date i couldn't get over the fact that he really asked me out, he was way out of my league! i couldn't stop starring! i love his dark complection.

i love ian because he chose me and it has made all the difference.

What a little romantic you are. I love Ian, too. I'm really jealous that he likes to shop with you. Life would be so much happier if Brian enjoyed that like me! Ian does have great style too. What a man!

That was way too cute. I have always loved the way your relationship worked. He really is a good guy despite the fact I never know when he is serious or not. It was so good to finally talk to you the other day, by the way!

What a sweet post. You know they say a 10 attracts a 10. So you must be just as great.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Ian sent me an email a few weeks ago, but somehow it was sent to my spam and got deleted. I meant to write him back and was thrilled when I saw your comment.

It's been so much fun to meet new people through our blog, and to get in touch with old friends, too. And you guys cover both!

You have a great blog. Your kids are darling. Tell Ian hello!
