Today is my sweet Husbands 30th birthday. FINALLY! Now he will join me in the 30's bracket and will maybe stop telling me how old I am (not likely. I seem to constantly stay 1.5 years older. Cougar.). I got him the coolest present ever. Seriously, I am so excited to give it to him. And I would tell you all what it is, but from time to time he stops in here to see what his wife is babbling about and today may be one of those days. So... you must wait. But I will tell you I am excited. It isn't like a cruise or anything. Don't be ridiculous. It's just awesome.

Anyway. I am making him a picture slide-show for his Big Birthday Bash we are having next weekend (pushed back a week due to UK's amazing run to the FINAL FOUR!). I would show you that, but too many people who will be at the party also read the blog. So... you must wait to watch 11 minutes of Nicholas filled glory. But, since it's his birthday, I will show you a few of my favorite pictures. Just because I am rather fond of the guy. So here is a little walk down the memory lane of Nick's first 30 years.
Look a little like someone we know?
Hanging out with Big brother Chris and a tiny little dog.
The middle school years
Some girl shows up in the pictures around 2000
A master fisherman. Clearly.
He studied hard in college. And got an amazing dog.
Seriously. He is adorable.
He married that girl in 2006. It was a good day.
He built her a house with his own two hands. Or at least part of a house.
They love the Bengals. And doing stuff together.
He always makes her laugh.
They decided to have a baby. He was really excited.
Oh how he loves his boy
They are exactly alike.
And he likes to teach him stuff.
Happy birthday, my husband. I can't wait to start our next 30 years together. xoxo


  1. I absolutely loved this post. And I don't know why but it actually brought a tear to my eyes! And you know how I feel about...emotions...

    Happy Birthday, Nick!

    P.S. Nick is the person who sadly informed me that if he found out I was a robot, he would have no choice but to destroy me. I haven't looked at robots the same since...

  2. Happy Birthday Nick!

    What a sweet post... how lovely to look back and see how far you've come together!

    My Tim is also 30 this year, but I get to tease him because I'm 3 years younger than he is *insert evil laugh*
