That’s how old K is today.

Happy, Happy Birthday, K!


If you remember my post for his birthday last year, you’ll know I shared with you 31 reasons why I love him.  Well, I decided to take this on again this year.  These are in no particular order…just the order they popped into my head.

32 Reasons Why I Love my K:

1 – I love how excited he is for Mini Mullan.  Every day, he tells me he wants her now.  No more waiting.  Baby now.

2 – I love how I already know that he will be a wonderful dad.  He is so caring, sweet, thoughtful, gentle, and considerate.  Plus, he cannot wait to be wrapped around Mini Mullan’s little finger.  He is thrilled to have a little daddy’s girl.

3 – I love how much he complains about the zoo, but every once in a while I’ll look over and he’ll be cuddled up next to one on the couch, sweetly petting their little head.  Or, I’ll catch him giving a cat a kiss on the head.  He talks a big game, but he’s a softy when it comes to his fur-babies.

4 – I love how he starts taking off random clothes the minute he walks in the door from work.  I find ties and belts all over the house.  And, I’m not sure how this happened, but I found a pair of shorts on the back of the couch the other day.  K, keep your clothes on!

5 – I love how passionate K is about his job.  He loves it and puts everything he has into it.

6 – I love how K gets into his magical thinking machine (aka, the shower) and comes out with new commercials for Pepsi, new products that will make him a million dollars (I can’t tell you any of these incase they are really good ideas), and new ideas that will solve all of the world’s problems.  Magic.

7 – I love when we get in the car to go somewhere, K instantly starts driving in the opposite direction.  When asked where we are going, K always yells, “I don’t know!”  Then it takes us twice as long to get there.  How does he get anywhere by himself?

8 – I love that K will randomly break out in dance, with or without music.

9 – I love that K will randomly show up with 7-Eleven Slurpies for me because he knows how much I love them.

10 – I love that when K puts his mind to something, he goes all the way.  For example, the back door was squeaking and driving him crazy.  So, at 6:30am, he finally had enough and sprayed WD-40 on the door.  Then, he went through the entire house WD-40’ing the doors so that none of them squeak.  This all happened while I was sleeping.  Then, he woke me up to tell me he did that.  He was so proud.  Now, he opens every door in the house and says, “Hear that?  Nothing.”  Nerd.

11 – I love that K likes to high-five.  A lot.  In front of people.  Yep, that’s right.  No shame.

12 – I love that K is super competitive and even when we are on a walk together, he has to be a foot ahead of me so he can be winning.  Now, it doesn’t help that I have a waddle and walk really slow, but still.

13 – I love that K has a nickname for me – Babydoll.  He’s called me that ever since we started dating and he probably will for the rest of our lives.  He already has a nickname for Mini, and she’s sure to have that the rest of her life too.

14 – I love that K will go out of his way for anyone, whether he knows them or not.  If someone needs something, K is first in line to help.

15 – I love that K is always late.  He even makes me late.  Ok, maybe I don’t love this.  But, it is one of his quirks and I’m stuck with it.  So therefore, I love it about him.  And, everyone knows this and they’ve come to accept that K will always be late.

16 – I love when K is walking Uma and she rubs her muzzled face up against his leg (yes, she wears a muzzle on walks – she’s sort of snotty towards other dogs – it must be the princess in her) because it itches and she wants it off.  Every time this happens, he replies, “I love you too, Uma!”

17 – I love that K is up for anything, even if it means sitting at home on the couch, cuddled with the pups and watching a movie.

18 – I love how laid back K is and how he’s so good at going with the flow.  We don’t have to make plans to have fun.  Sometimes we’ll just get in the car and drive until we see something that looks fun.

19 – I love how K makes me laugh.  He’s so goofy and knows exactly when I need a good laugh.

20 – I love how K doesn’t mind that I write about him on the blog.  All.the.time.  He’s entertaining, what can I say!

21 – I love how K will sit through stupid You Tube videos of animals being funny, just because he likes to watch me laugh until I cry.  And, he’ll file those videos in the depths of his head in case I’m having a bad day and he needs to pull one of those out.  Way to go, K!

22 – I love that K’s brain is always “on”.  I like to say he has a hamster, Ernesto, constantly running on a wheel in there.  Sometimes, usually at bedtime, I lean over and whisper in his ear, “Stop running, Ernesto,” because we need to go to sleep.  Sometimes, when K’s brain is really fried after a long work week or event, Ernesto is laying next to the wheel, giving the occasional spin with his paw.  That’s when K’s eyes gloss over and you know he couldn’t make a decision to save his life.

23 – I love that K rocks the bow ties.  And suspenders.  And only he can.  Go K, go!

24 – I love that K is always ready to volunteer.  It doesn’t matter what he is doing, as long as he can give back to the community, he is happy.  This is something we both love and I’m happy we are able to do it together.  I think some of the most fun we’ve had this year has been volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House, cooking dinner for the guests.  Plus, it’s fun watching K cook.  And, he looks pretty cute in an apron!

25 – I love that K likes to make plans for the future.  Way in the future.  As in, we already know where/what we want our retirement home to be like.  Haha.  Hint, there will be a golf cart involved.  Be jealous.

26 – I love that when K asks, “Where to next?” usually after dinner, my answer is always Target.  He has come to the point where he stops asking and just drives me to Target.  I love that man!

27 – I love that K will randomly call me from work and ask if he can have a date night with me tonight.  Ok, twist my arm.  I love that we still date.

28 – I love that K posts random Facebook statuses just to get a reaction from people.  My not-so-favorite one started with Dani’s lady doctor…  The rest are usually pretty funny and not meant to be taken seriously.  But, it is very funny to watch people’s responses thinking that K is serious.  We just love a good laugh around here.

29 – I love that K is already in love with Mini Mullan.  He just keeps saying how excited he is for her.  I also love the K leaned over and whispered to me the other day that he’s so happy we are having a girl.  Seriously, already the best daddy ever!

30 – I love that K has finally stopped worrying about his age and getting older.  I think he’s extremely happy with where he is in his life, where we are as a couple, and that he is finally about to become a dad.  32 isn’t looking so bad!

31 – I love having K as my best friend.  He is always there for me.  He will listen until his ears fall off.  He knows me better than anyone.  And, he loves me for me….goofy quirks and all.  And, I love him for all of his goofy quirks too.  We are meant for each other.  We are swans.

32 – And, I’m ending this the same way I ended last year’s list:  I love how k is mine.  All mine.  I claimed him.  He’s mine.  Forever.  (Whether you like it or not, k.  You are stuck with ME!).


There you have it.  32 reasons why I love my K for his 32nd birthday.

K, I hope you have a wonderful birthday and I plan on doing everything in my power to make it that way.  I know 32 is going to be magical for you and I can’t wait to say that about 33 and 34 and so on!  You deserve to have the best year ever.  But first, we start with the best birthday ever.  Happy, happy birthday my love!!



Enjoy your day,
