My Best Friend.....

is not my dog. I know you might think that but Diesel is just a dog and,... well, of course he is not JUST a dog. ANYWAY- MY Best friend is my husband and I am going to share with you why I am so thankful for him.

HE is my super hero. He kills spiders while admitting that he doesn't like them either.

He is a hard worker and he never complains. He gets up every morning at 5:15ish to go to work and usually has no idea what time he will be home. His job requires more brain power and skill than anything I have ever done.

HE is humble. HE would never tell you how cool he really is. :-) He never asks anyone to call him by his title, though he deserves it after all the years of schooling and test taking. He is just John or Mr. John. One of the units at the Hospital threw him a going away party when he left the rotation!

HE is kind hearted. HE is not to cool for anyone. All of his friends love him (I guess they wouldn't be friends if they didn't). HE plays guitar and very well at that. HE sings like a rock star.

HE tells me I am beautiful EVERYDAY and ALL DAY. HE even makes me tell him how beautiful I am so I will know it (but I don't because that's strange. But then he thinks that is cute) "Tell me!" HE makes funny noises, no not gas, just strange noises like "egh" and other things I can't seem to figure out how to spell. He has me making them now. HE answers my phone calls every time with either "Wife" or "I love you!" or "Egh!" HE even sends me text messages during surgery!

HE reads the Bible with me. HE prays with me every night before we sleep. HE waits up for me on my long work nights just to say goodnight. HE greets me at the door to say "hello" and gives me sweet hugs and kisses. HE goes to church with me every Sunday that he can. He goes to Bible study every time that he can. He wants to lead our family towards Christ.

HE likes to sleep outside with our dog and the umbrella. HE loves to grill. HE watches "So You Think You Can Dance" with me. He loves to go for spontaneous SONIC runs with me.

HE taught me how to ride a road bike safely. HE organizes my training schedules on EXCEL spreadsheets. HE taught me how to swim more efficiently. HE encouraged me during my first Triathlon. I would not have finished the first portion if were not for him cheering me on.

HE IS PATIENT! Oh my goodness is he patient with me! Wow.
There is so much more.....

My husband is my wonderful friend. I have never been so comfortable around any one. We always joke that he had no idea I was like "this" when he asked me to marry him. Frankly, neither did I.

Y'all are so cute.

We sort of have names for the baby. We didn't find out if it is a boy or a girl so we'll see what happens when he/she arrives. If it is a boy, his name will be Noah Gregory (Gregory is my dad's name) and if it is a girl, then bless her little heart because Josh and I can't agree on ANYTHING. I think we have it narrowed down to 6 possibilities at this point...AHH!!
