Lordy, lordy! Rusty is really 40??


Yes, Rusty has finally reached that much-maligned milestone: 40. But really, who's to say that it's bad? I for one, think Rusty looks darn good for 40. And he doesn't act a day over 29! Besides, isn't 40 the new 30?

Anyways.

Since he didn't want a party or anything special to commemorate this particular birthday and he didn't want any gifts, I decided I would do something different for him this year. So instead of a gift with a rockin' handmade card, I will use this post to tell Rusty how much I dig him.

(Even when he's going over the charges on the credit cards!)

So, without further ado, Rusty, here are 40 reasons why I love you:

1. You are an amazing father.
2. You love me for me, not just because I'm a hottie. (Bear with me, people. I've gotta use humor since I'm putting it all out there!)


3. You understand right sock, left sock.


4. You put up with me.
5. You are a Godly man.

6. You are devoted.
7. You get me.


8. You understand why I'm so fiercely overprotective of Cade and Lydia.
9. You make me laugh.


10. You laugh at yourself.
11. You have great legs.


12. You're not easily swayed.
13. You don't like ham and beans.


14. You let me eat all the olives when we go to Olive Garden or Paisano's.
15. You have enough patience for the both of us.



16. You are incredibly generous.
17. You're as big of a KU fan as I am.


18. You're hot.
19. You've given me the most beautiful and wonderful children.


20. You always put others first. Always.
21. You like my cooking.



22. You don't complain on the rare oc
casion that I snore.
23. You don't beat me or the kids. (Hey, I have 17 more to go. You try going for 40!)


24. You make incredible chili.
25. You like my singing. (Or at least pretend to.)


26. Your gimpy hop.
27. Your children adore you.


28. You always ask what I'm ordering at a restaurant

30. You didn't let me get that ice sculpture for our wedding reception.
31. You don't care that I will never make meatloaf.


32. You don't mind that we will never get a dog.
33. You understand my germophobia and put up with it.



34. You read books because you like to.
35. You are the most financially sound person I've ever known and yet you still love me.



36. You let me drive after we've eaten so I don't get carsick.
37. You trust my internal GPS because you know yours doesn't work.
38. You go fishing with your uncle until midnight.
