  • 1) He puts up with my crazy.
    2) He let me get a puppy when my kitty passed away and I was uber sad.
    3) He's never dutch-oven'd me....when he's had plenty of chances. 
    4) He tries so hard each and every day to make me laugh & smile, and always finds a way to succeed.
    5) He loves me for me and always has my back. He's kind of the best.

    3. He's a fantastic father.

  • Aww, this one's fun :)

    1. Every morning when he leaves for work, he blows me a kiss from his car for me to "catch".
    2. He is ADORABLE when it comes to how he treats our animals, especially our dog.
    3. He cleans up the kitchen and does all the dishes after every meal I cook, changes the cat litter boxes, and will clean the entire house if I don't get to it.
    4. He will randomly send me text messages telling me he loves me, or show up with a bouquet of flowers.
    5. He goes along with basically everything I want, regardless of how ridiculous it is. We have seen every single Twilight movie in the theaters, he has put up with me bringing home cats at random times, and this all happens with minimum complaining from him.
  • 1.  His unwavering principles
    2.  His care and concern for others
    3.  His love of sports...especially college football
    4.  His determination
    5.  The way he makes me feel like the most important person in the world (I know that outside the walls of my house I'm not...but he tries and that's nice)

  • 1) He is a fantastic dad, especially for a guy who was abandoned by both his bio dad and his stepdad.

    2) He is very thoughtful. When we were dating, I told him I stayed home from work because I was feeling crummy. He surprised me by stopping over... with a box of Honey Nut Cheerio's of all things! I asked, "Why cheerios?" and he said, "Just in case you needed something to eat and you didn't want chicken soup." Even more amazing, when we realized we couldn't afford adoption, he decided to get his vasectomy reversed.

    3) He has a great smile and a great sense of humor... as you can probably tell by my siggy.

    4) He is a videographer and movie buff. He can tell you random trivia about any movie he's ever seen, and some that I've never even heard of. He doesn't do it in a know-it-all-way, either. He's very cool like that. 

    5) He's adventurous and rugged. And genuine.
    TTC #2: My chart
  • 1- He's an introvert and very calm which balance my craziness and over-extravaganza personality. I like myself way more since I've been with him

    2- He's the funniest guy I ever met. He remembers weird things from years ago and will twist it in an awesome inside joke. He sings stupid songs to the dog and like to dance to entertain me.

    3- With him, everything will always be alright. There is no problem too big to fix.

    4- He is so sensible. He puts on a show with his friends but just seeing me cry will make him cry.

    5- He tells me all the time how beautiful he thinks I am even if I'm a bloated mess in sweat pants with cheetos powder on my face.

  • 1.  He can always make me laugh - no matter my mood.

    2.  He's tall, dark and handsome ;)

    3.  He puts up with my crazy (and trust me, there's plenty to go around)

    4.  He loves me unconditionally - even after all the mistakes and bad choices I've made

    5.  We are each other's exact opposite and because of that, we match perfectly <3

    1) He calls me babybell (and then we found out about babybel cheese but whatever)

    2) He's a genius. Literally. His IQ is something ridiculous that I can't remember at this moment. And it's adorable cause he tries to play it off like anyone can know all the things he knows.

    3) He is always genuinely interested when I'm talking about makeup or clothes or whatever and next time he buys me a gift it's usually one of the things I mentioned before

    4) He massages my back, legs and feet every. Single. Day. He rubs my belly too when I have cramps :)

    5) He can cook. And he's good at it. His specialty is fried coconut shrimp. Seriously amazeballs.

    ETA: I had to add a 6th. He is the sole reason I got through my first semester of college chemistry. He would let me cry, throw my books at the wall, then go get my books, TEACH HIMSELF the material and explain it to me in a simpler way. I got an A that semester.

  • 1. He is the hardest worker I have ever met (well, tied with my Dad)

    2. He really loves his job and is extremely passionate about it

    3. We have known each other since we were 14, so he knows me better than anyone

    4. He is crazy about our daughter and can't wait to have another baby

    5. He loves to surprise me

  • 1. He likes to be goofy with me. Even when things are going really sucky I can depend on him to lighten the mood.

    2. He's a great stepdad to my kids. Not every guy could step in to a family with three teenagers and grow to love them like his own, even though they have a lot of anger towards their real dad and he sometimes gets the brunt of it.

    3. He loves my birds. We have 10 pet birds, and not only does he tolerate them, he "adopted" one as his own and spends time teaching him tricks and loving on him.

    4. He calls me sexy, every day, even when I'm sick and gross, and I really believe he means it!

    5. He's really truly the best thing that ever happened to  me. We are just so in sync with our thoughts and ideas, our morals and our beliefs, it's truly an amazing thing.

  • Oooh, fun!  I need to be reminded of why I love DH since I'm all drugged up on hormones and he's caused us to cancel our IUI this cycle and TI is looking is sketch.

    1. He leaves an hour before I have to get up, but he gives me a hug and a kiss before he leaves everyday and never expects me to wake up with him.

    2. Usually he's such a Sheldon that my sarcasm flies right by him, but when he's on it's hilarious.  Best of all, he knows that he usually misses it, so when he really zings someone he gets so excited and shouts out, "Bazinga!"

    3. He is so pretty.  Twinkly eyes, rosy cheeks, and OMG lips.

    4. He treats my granny like she's a princess, even when she's crazy.  In return, she tells him that he's the sexiest man alive.

    5. He makes sure that I know I'm his favorite person.

  • This is a good GTKY :)

    Why I love DH:
    1) He researches EVERYTHING and makes the most thought of, informed decisions.
    2) I see the way he loves the shit out of our little Boston Terrier and I know that his kindness and gentle ways will be passed on to our kids when we become parents.
    3) We have the same sarcastic, crass sense of humor. 
    4) He can really dress
    5) Because this is his motto: "Happy Wife, Happy Life".

  • teal owl said:

    1. penis

    2. penis.

    3. penis

    4. penis.

    5. He is the most amazing man I've ever met.

    HE HAS 4 PENIS'?!
    That IS amazing!

    1. He's very thoughtful, gentle, cautious, and super sweet (he makes me a better person)
    2. He gets me 
    3. He adores my family, his family is pretty great too
    4. He indulges my whims
    5. I'd be lying if I didn't mention his penis. I like it a lot.

  • 1. He's an amazing dad.  DD is his ex's daughter.  He's not even the biological father.  But he has raised her as his own by himself for 8 years.  He is DS's best friend.

    2. He gave me a chance, knowing my past, when no one else would.

    3. He always calls me beautiful.

    4. He is always thinks of great family day activities, like going to the Kids Museum or science center or a walk at the nature reserve.  Last weekend he took the kids to a skate park!

    5. He will do anything for our family! When we first met, he was delivering newspapers and barely scraping by.  By the time we got married, he had secured steady employment with benefits.  Now he has worked his way up the ladder and we make three times what we used to. The promotion made us move, but moving brought so many other new experiences for us that there are too many to list.
  • 1. His unconditional love for me (our furbabies and hopefully one day our children).

    2. His ability to remain clam and collected yet take charge and help in times of crisis or during high stress moments. 

    3. The little weird things that really bother him. (Prime example: He has a horrible fear of allowing his bare feet to touch other people's bare feet.)

    4. He seems to know me better than I know myself.  

    5. His willingness to put his life on the line every day he goes to work for strangers who need help.

    2. He puts up with my crazy family.
    3. He's the most supportive and non-judgmental person I've ever met.
    4. He's super smart and even though I don't understand half of what he says when he talks Science, I enjoy how much he loves it.
    5. He's pretty.

    Aw I could've wrote this word for word. H comes from a family of math and science buffs whereas my family is all readers and English nerds, and it's always funny how fast their conversations go over my head.

    Also I am the oldest of 9 with a bio dad and 2 stepdads, so needless to say my crazy family can also be a lot to deal with ha

  • 1.  He is so incredibly smart.  He has an amazing ability to take in information, analyze it, and come up with great ideas to solve a problem or start a new project, all within a fairly short period of time.  I am jealous of his skills!

    2.  He is driven to do great things in terms of his career.  He works very hard with the ultimate goal of making major positive impacts in this world.

    3.  He believes in me and my abilities even when I frequently doubt myself.

    4.  He is affectionate and always puts a lot of effort into improving our relationship.

    5.  He is positive, adventurous, and inquisitive, and reminds me of how good life can truly be with the right attitude and appreciation. 

    Oh yeah, and he's tall, dark and handsome.  Remind me how I got this lucky? 

    I can't wait to see him as a father because I know he'll give his all to be the best dad he can be :)
