30 things I love about My Love!

This post is dedicated to my Joshy-poo, who is 30 years old today!
(Is it wrong of me to consider personal blog posts better than Hallmark cards?) 

Yes, 30, the day you realize you are closer to 40 than 20, 
and that you've probably reached one third of your life (that is if you're lucky).
It's a milestone that not many forget, but also the day you start embracing wiser days.
...at least that's what I'm hoping for anyway!

I thought to celebrate, I would put together a little collection of the
Thirty things I love about My Love:
(in no particular order)

1. He makes me laugh all. the. time.
2. He has this amazing tolerance level when it comes to my temper tantrums.
3. His total unawareness of trends even though he tries to keep up (ombre=ambrosia).

4. The cute way he fails at celebrity recognition despite his movie buffness.
5. His never-changing signature look: Hat, Nerd Glasses, Graphic Tee, Shorts (even in the dead of winter)
6. That he got my initials tattooed on his ring finger- now that's commitment!
7. He never gives me crap about being a lazy ass, even when there's clearly cleaning to be done.
8. His half-asleep goodbye kisses in the morning.
9. The way he shamelessly belts out Journey songs.
10. He will always allow me to buy things, even when we both know I probably shouldn't splurge on that Venti Starbucks coffee...
11. He'll clean up after my messes (like that recent unintentional, awful-smelling, banana pepper juice spill...oops).
12. Without fail, he will magically wake up the second I start changing into work clothes in the morning, hehe.
13. His super intelligence! He's like my walking encyclopedia... but he never gets offended when I debate him on his facts, even when I clearly have no clue on the topic.
14. The constant support he provides- even when I quit my job and after I got fired- he never made me feel bad about it.
15. He's never gone a day without reminding me that he loves me and that I look beautiful.
16. He's got some sick ink and it makes him look like a total badass!
17. His positive attitude and belief that things will always work themselves out.
18. The way he debates and stands up for what he believes in.
19. His passion for the game of golf.
20. The fact that he never takes himself too seriously.
21. His fiery Aries nature (I tend to bring this out: Aries=Fire Gemini=Air)
22. The way he giggles like a child when I tickle his feet :)
23. His understanding of the crazy amount of time I put into blogging. 
24. His cute OCD-ness with T-shirt collars. 
25. The way he rubs my back when he knows I can't sleep.
26. The fact that he'll still get up and dance fully aware of his two left feet.
27. The way he makes me feel good about life in general.
28. That he's willing to kill spiders for me even when I wake him up in the morning.
29. The way he'll casually grab my bum in public...
30. The way he's helped me fully believe that he will never stop loving me. 

He's the peanut butter to my jelly.
The Ramen to my Noodle.
The orange juice to my wine.
The Cartman to my Kyle.
The pickle to my Snooki.

I've been in love him since I was 14,
I'm still in love with him 10 years later,
and I'll love him even when
there's not a single hair left on his head 

Happy Birthday 
to my one and only!
