Happy Birthday or I think I would have inhaled!

Today is my husband’s 36th birthday!  I know everyone says their husband is the best, but seriously, mine is.  No, really he is, don’t even try to argue with me on this.  Even though I make fun of his bald head, threaten to punch him in the face for snoring, and complain about his nerdiness, he is still my one and only and I am so blessed to be his wife.

I think most of my readers know quite a bit about me, so for Shawn’s birthday I thought I’d tell you a little about him.  Here are 5 random facts about my husband:

  1. He is a computer programmer, and has worked at the same job since graduating from college 14 years ago.
  2. In high school he smoked pot in the back of a ZZ Top roadie’s semi, but he didn’t inhale.
  3. He ran track in college, and was All American in hurdles.  He still holds the record at his college for 400M hurdles!
  4. When he was growing up he had a wiener dog named Puddles.
  5. His favorite movie is The Big Lebowski.  (I’ve never even seen it!)

I actually wanted to do 10 facts, but was having a brain fart at 6, so I decided to keep it at 5.  Anywho…

Happy Birthday Shawn!  I love you, and the girls and I are so lucky to have you!  Even though you hate Nickelback, I’m posting this song for you.  Due to recent events, this song makes me think of you every time I hear it.

This is so cute! Happy Birthday to your hubby. My hubby's favorite movie is The Big Lebowski too. I so made him walk out of the theater during it that he went back the next day to see the rest on his own. LOL I can't stand the movie but he loves it. :)

Happy B-Day to your hubs.

I still don't understand the whole "I didn't inhale" arguement. So, you didn't suck it hard enough to get much smoke in your lungs, but did enough to make it look like you were smoking. Hmmmm...

So sweet! Happy birthday to your hubby!

Happy Birthday to your hubby! And it's hilarious that you posted a song by an artist he dislikes. He just doesn't understand them. Were he more lyrically inclined, he would so see what you're talking about here!
