I asked Dan what he thought I should write about in my blog… he said “how sexy your husband is.” While I don’t think any of you want to hear exactly that, I definitely don’t mind using this venue to brag a little on him. Here are a few things I love about Dan:

  • At 30 years old, he still doesn’t mind being called Danny.
  • He mispronounces his own name – the drycleaner thinks his name is Dean.
  • He is an incredible daddy. Alyssa and Parker immediately drop whatever they’re doing when they hear the garage door open, and RUN, screaming to greet him when he gets home from work.
  • He prefers home to work.
  • He loves his job and takes pride in what he does.
  • He doesn’t take his job too seriously (which is significant considering his line of work).
  • His relationship with God takes priority over everything else.
  • He is a loyal friend. Some of his closest friendships go back to elementary school.
  • He loves to go to church and serve those around him.
  • He is almost always the first to apologize (shame on me!).
  • He respects my opinion, and really listens – even when we disagree.
  • He takes good care of his body. He is training for his second marathon and has almost no body fat, despite consuming about 800 calories a day in ice cream.
  • He is a beautiful skier – snow and water.
  • He makes me laugh.
  • He loves my family.
  • He is excited about our adoption, even though it means postponing his purchase of a Mini Cooper.
  • He (mistakenly) believes with all of his heart that I am the smartest, most beautiful, godliest woman in the world!

Dan instisted on responding to this, and apparently posting it as a comment was not good enough - "Not everyone will read the comments!" he said. So this is what he had to say:

"I object to this blog on so many different levels.

First, I thought I was being funny making a suggestion to blog about how sexy I am. When will I learn I'm really not that funny? Hopefully soon.

I don't think it is much of an accomplishment to not take my job too seriously, those who know me don't think I take anything seriously.

The reason I am usually first to apologize is because I am the one who is usually wrong.

As for responding to the rest of the comments my wife made, it goes to show how blind love can be. I am glad she thinks those things, but as those who know me Laura is making those things up. "

I got a good one huh?

I was just talking to Danny tonight about his total lack of body fat.

I hope he gets fat. Not soon, but one day, I want him to be like 300 lbs.

Avast! "He is a beautiful skier – snow and water" I believe you, I can see from the pictures that he is a very handsome man in general. In my opinion, the only way to make an already striking man even more handsome is to adorn him in ski attire and send him down the slopes. I would think that watching your husband ski would be like seeing masculine beatuy at its finest.

I hope nun of that sounded to strange.
