Today is Cardy's birthday. He thinks I always make too big of deals about birthdays but I think it's the one day that's actually yours. Aside from holidays, birthdays are the only other day of the year we get to celebrate - & what better thing to do than celebrate yourself?! To me, birthdays are the day you should be able to do whatever you want. You should be pampered and spoiled and not feel a bit of guilt.

To Cardy: Today I will pamper and spoil you and let you do whatever you want. I love you and feel like the luckiest girl to be married to such a amazing guy. Happy Birthday, Baby!

Cardy is 31 today so I'm going to share 31 things I love about him:

1. He is my very best friend

2. We share the same memories from the last half of our lives

3. He is a great son & takes good care of his Mom

4. He's a wonderful brother and has a close relationship with all of his siblings

5. He's an amazing Uncle and loves spending time with his nieces & nephews. It just confirms what I've always known...he's going to make a great dad some day.
6.He keeps me laughing & is the funniest person I know. People always tell him he should do stand-up, I think he should be a comedy writer.

7.His sense of humor is unique. He's witty and quick and weird (think Conan O'Brien or Family Guy)

14. He's easy going and chill. This is a really good thing for me. It balances us out as a couple

15. He is happy with what ever I cook. He's never picky and he's a good critic. He helps me modify my recipes for the better

16. Have I ever mentioned - he's a Super Taster (at least he thinks so)

17. He's a really good snuggler & I love when he wraps his strong arms around me

18. He has the most luscious, full lips. I can't help but kiss them

28. He never lost his imagination or his creativity

29. Did I mention he's hilarious? (his humor deserves a double mention)
