You make me smile...

Well...this beautiful barn does make me smile...but today's post isn't about the barn...although it could be because it really makes me smile...

but what makes me smile even more is my handsome hubby...aka Bobby...{not Bob as he now tries to introduce himself now-a-days...HA!...those that have known us a long time or family agree that completely doesn't fly...he can always try i guess:)}...

but before you say "eeewww" it's a mushy gushy post today...it's his birthday today...

 Happy Birthday my love!

Over the weekend we had some fun...did a little trespassing {oops...should I be saying that?...well we'll just say we stopped by some land and a house with a barn that was for sale...and checking it out...that's our story}

...I made my husband blush a little

not in the way you are thinking...and if you are...where are your thoughts at? :) {laughing}... blushing as in he was embarrassed to be by himself here...

But really...he's so funny to me...you know those moments where something happens around the house...and you are thinking...who in the world did that...you go through the process of elimination...thinking...

I know it wasn't me...even though I probably do my fair share of those things...but this time it's not me...

Definitely not Madison...
Couldn't have been Hayley...
wasn't the pup, Cadence...
Or the water frogs...Ribbit and Ribbit...

So who does that leave?....hmmm....probably handsome hubby, right?

Well then you ask...and it's "what are you talking about? I didn't do it..."

Sometimes I think to that...it must be "ribbit" and "ribbit", right? And then I realize that must be where our Hayley gets that stuff from {Bobby would say BOTH of us...I hesistantly say he's right (sighing)}...

how did I get onto this...

well I had to stop to read Miss Hayley a book at the moment {so don't think that is the first thing that pops in my mind about hubby because it isn't}...

So we got to a page she just so happened to color on {another day}...and hmmm...she looks at it...looks at me...her face was saying...who me? not me....First time I've seen it mommy...I promise!

She verbalizes "Uh Oh...color"...like she has no idea how in the world it happened...

that's my hubby...and my Hayley...{and honestly I love that about them...our little secret though because I wouldn't want either of them to know since he would say it's okay if he does that on a routine basis you know} 

BUT let's be honest here...I'm definitely plenty guilty of it myself at times...but my problem is I end up telling him what I did...I've really got to come up with better stories though...like when I blew up our microwave last year...I had nothin'!...and each time I tried to stutter out an explanation...he said "nope"

...but this is what we were up to for part of our Saturday morning...{and yes I changed my opening song to "Smile" by Uncle Kracker on purpose...because it is the truth with Bobby...every single word of that song...he makes me smile...he is just that great...but of course my log-in info won't work so  it won't change...click on song 3 if you like}

we smile...we drive each other nuts...we have fun...we do argue sometimes...and he says "Who Me?"....and I say "Yes you...it's for sure not the trees or something babe!"....

then he pouts....

the best part about these pictures is that he didn't know I was taking these until too late...gave us something to laugh about for sure...{he really is a great sport with a lot of things with me! you are probably shaking your heads in agreement right about now...because I just did too}

BUT most of all my favorite thing together is laughing and talking ~ we are pretty great at that....I wouldn't trade it for the world...

we pray together often...

we love together...

we cry together...out of happiness and sadness...

and we really love to dream together...

He is my best friend without a doubt...my love...someone who is a lot deeper than he gives himself credit for...I love that about him...because he so gets it!


he accepts me for who I am...{most of the time}...you know I've said it before...until the "type A" makes a daily appearance on him...{I'm sure that just got a chuckle out of him}...because to him...I'm sure daily was the keyword there for him...

he loves on me with his patience...his prayers...his encouragement...his funny comments and actions...{he really thinks he's funny too...and it's a good thing because he really is...}



and He always cracks me up when he gets a little curious....but don't worry...he doesn't go peeking in anyone's cupboards or anything when we are somewhere...just lettin' you know in case you just started thinking about when he's visited you or something...

                                        

He really is a man I am thankful for...and I'm very proud to say he is my husband...

To be honest that is always something I need to do better at telling him...
because I really don't say it enough...and he really needs that sometimes...

I'm proud of you Bobby!

proud of you always and with everything you do...

You are great at everything you put your heart into...you just need to believe that about yourself...

...and the best part is...you have always loved me...for me...

You're just that great of a man...Happy Birthday my love!

You are a true treasure in my life!


We {the girls and I} have a few different things up our sleeves this year...nothing big...but a few things I know he will love when he arrives home after dinner with us and the fam...he really loves all that stuff deep down you know...can't wait!

Blessings for you today handsome hubby!
