My Sicky Husband

I am like, so stressed out right now, and have been on the verge of a meltdown, so I just want to take a timeout to count my blessings. I have the best family and friends who are so supportive and i know would do anything for Tyler and me. That, in the midst of struggles, is so comforting. I just want to give a little shout out to Dr. "Feelgood" Dave Ives. He's the one to call to make it alright. (there's a little 80's rock for ya Dave [like you even read my blog]). Dave was so so so patient and helpful, and not to mention totally informed and accurate in his diagnosis. So thank you Dave for your wisdom and time. I posted a sicky picture of Tyler at the doctor. So sad. Everyone please continue to pray for him, because he's still not 100% by any means, even though he is significantly better. Thank you for all your fasting and prayers. It means so much to us. We love you!

My Muse and My Puppy

Doing hair is like my all time number one favorite thing to do, and I don't want to brag, but I'm really really good at it. Name that movie anyone? I did a full makeover on Kirsti yesterday at school for a project and these are the results. Hot no? I heart this haircut and color too. In fact i don't know which one i love more. And who could look better in it than Kirsti, hot mom of a three month old baby. I love love cutting Kirsti's hair, it is so fun. Mainly because I can do whatever I want (such a wonderful source of creative freedom and inspiration), and also because of her creative direction... which is without fail "shorter".
Below is my puppy Dottie in her driving position. She gets on her tippy toes to stick her head out the window. We can't roll it down anymore though, or she most likely will jump out.

Let me count the ways...

I came across the notebook that I was using during the time that I was planning my wedding, and read a list that I made of the reasons why I love Tyler. They made me laugh and smile and re-appreciate (is that a word) my very cute -then fiance- now husband, so I thought I would share a few....

- I find candy wrappers in the washing machine after he does his laundry
- when we went to see "the ring" in the movie theatre he snored (not intentionally) during the most intense scary part
- he always opens my bedroom door without knocking with the hope that I'm changing
- a lot of times we act like we're in kindergarten
- whenever there's a family get together he spends all of his time playing with the kids
- he said that when he sees my profile he thinks I am the most beautiful person in the world
- if it's humanly possible, he needs more attention than me
- the only thing that stopped him from getting sleeve tattoos was the thought that I might not approve or want to marry him
- he loved my mom
- my mom loved him
- he has held my hair and rubbed my back two different times when I've thrown up (and then he cleans up)
- he can make anything cool
- he loves to pee anywhere but the toilet (i.e. off his parents deck)
- he has the cutest smile and mouth (the corners curl up a little bit)
- I asked him to pick me up from school and he showed up on his bike (he made me ride on the handlebars)
- after he saw me trying on my wedding dress he told me he really liked my "features"
- he lives vicariously through the dogs by feeding them 37 treats a day

So, those are but a few from the list, but you get the idea. The other night as we were falling asleep, Tyler said in his groggy voice "you're my best friend". I could not agree more.
