GuEsS WhAt....


He was born 50 years ago.

(If you haven't figured it our yet.....Bill is 10 years older than me....

He is a DIE hard University of Illinois fan.
Can ya guess where he graduated from???
I don't know if I can count that much to figure out what year he graduated.
*just kidding Honey*
Seriously, was it 1981??

He loves great deep dish pizza....

He thinks a wonderful bottle of wine is a perfect night~

He will do anything to get Bradley to stop asking to fly a kite.

He spends all his free time with his family.

He wishes he had more time in life to golf.
*Maybe this year, Honey*

Just a few things I know about my husband.....
He loves his family with all he's got.
He works sooooo hard so that I don't have to.
He even makes a few extra bucks for me to decorate the house over and over and over again!
He loves my cooking and baking.
He loves when I make the bed.
(he doesn't say it but I know he does)
He LOVES politics.
He loves to have a beautiful yard.
He loves our dog almost as much as our kids.
He support those he loves endlessly.
He has way more patience with me than I do with him.
He doesn't get mad when I don't cook dinner...sorry to admit but that's pretty often.
He LOVES politics.
He enjoys spending time with the occasional cigar.
He would much rather hear about you than talk about himself.
He LOVES politics.
He loves a nice strong cup of coffee.
He loves history.
Last but not least....he's a genuinely nice guy.

So, to you Bill...
to another 50 Years.

Thank you for the promotional announcement. I don't deserve the notoriety. You are the one that should get an award for putting up with me.

But...since you brought it up...I feel great and really ready to tackle the next 100 years with the goal of making the best of each day.

Thank you for being there Maisy. You rock!

WHAT FUN! Sharing a birthday with sweet I said to her - he's between my daughter's birthday (yesterday) and my husband's birthday (tomorrow!)

LOVE knowing more about your other half.

and I L-O-V-E politics, too. Doesn't matter which side of the fence anyone sits on, I truly get energized talking politics with people.


Have a great day celebrating your husband. And a great night too...**wink, wink**
