Where have you Ben?


This post is dedicated to Ben!
He called me the other day and out of the blue was like "Why am "I" never on your blog? Its always about you and the kids and Twilight and Vegas. Its like I should get my own Facebook account!" I just laughed! I didn't really think he cared much. Anyway, I just wanted to give my "honey bunny" a quick shout out!

Ben is truly my guardian angel. I met him when I was a junior in high school. At that time, I wasn't running with the best crowd or making the best decisions. He is the reason I'm where I am today. He has the best heart. I've never met someone like him. He NEVER says anything bad about anyone and doesn't have an enemy in the world. (Its sorta annoying actually :) ) He also always tries to see the best in people and in situations. He's a leader and an example.

He's an amazing husband and an even better dad.
He is the most chill person ever and he never yells or gets too mad. Ben does laundry and vacuums!

Ben is obsessed with ESPN and will watch the same reports over and over again. He also loves to watch the food channel. When he is into something, he is so passionate about it.

Football for example. I wish I could be so passionate about something, anything, the way he is about that sport. He has taught me to love football too!!

He is the most patient person I've ever met! My mom calls him on a regular basis... always asking him advice or questions about this or that. He is always so sweet to her!
(even though I KNOW it drives him crazy! )

Well, I think I have gone on long enough. I was actually kinda worried I wouldn't have much to say! ;) J/K!
Babe, I love you so much! You are the best part of my day!
Thank you for being you and for helping me be a better person. Thank you for being such an amzing dad and for being so supportive of this family!

So,JO! I have not seen or heard from you in forever, and I really have been thinking a lot about you... I REALLY miss you! You are one of the greatest friends I have ever had- seriously. I only wish I could be as great of a friend as you always have been:) I really miss hanging out with you.I got your facebook email... i'll work on opening my own, cuz i NEED to see more picts of your darling kids I never get to see anymore.
Also, I loved your sweet post about Ben! I think the only time I even mention anyone other than my kids is on Father's Day? Sad. I should learn from you. Also, your new years resolutions are KILLER! After reading yours, i'm pretty sure I need to revise mine! pretty impressive you even have FHE at all... isn't it total craziness with your 2 kido's? And of course, we can ALL add the one of being a better wife and mom- but sadly, that's the hardest one:)
Anyways, now that I've won the 'longest comment' award... give me a call if you're ever headed up here. I'll come down and meet you! We missed you over christmas break:(
