Yesterday was Jase's birthday. I would have blogged about it then, but it was a crazy day. The dude didn't get home from Cali (taking accupuncture exam) til 3am, then we woke him up at 7am with an amazing carb loaded breakfast in bed made up of Mimi's muffins that he brought home for us, waffles with buttermilk rum syrup (a step up from buttermilk syrup) on waffles, eggs, so he'll last a couple of hours, and of coarse pumpkin pie with cool whip. Then we headed back over to our house (we were staying at my parents while they're out of town), and cleaned up the backyard for his party, freaked out at 9:30, remembering the kid's soccer games, got their uniforms on and headed to HOlbrook. We missed K's, but hit J's. Then we came back, I made pumpkin pie #7 and #8, then we finished the backyard and started the party. It was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone that came. It was a lotta fun! Sadly, I didn't take pictures. but just imagine a back yard with icicle lights all around the fence, good food, lots of little kids and friends from all over the state. Good times, good times. Oh, and deer burgers...that's right, Trina and Clarence hoooked Jase up with deer burgers...he loves em!

Alright, now I'm going to take a little quiz for Jase:
What's his nicknames? Jase, daddy, chickenhead, sexy

How long have you been married? almost 8 years

How long did you date? WE didn't. We were friends "with benefits" for 2 years, worked together for about 6 months, then one day I told him I liked him more than I've ever liked anyone, he thought about it and a we planned a wedding, then got engaged, then got married, and then I told him I loved him...I know, a little out of order, but look how well it worked out! How old is he? 31

Who eats more sweets? Isn't it obvious?! Duh!

Who said I love you first? Um, Jase, by about 4 months! He said it on the doorway of the bedroom of the Cox's house after we went on a LONG motorcycle ride to Thatcher...IN OCTOBER and we were frozen. I said it on their swing a few months later.

Who is taller? Jase, by 1"

Who sings better? Um, neither, but I'm going to have to say me since i've never gotten the comment " you have the worst singing voice I've ever heard."...Yup, that's right, some friend of his told him that before we got married...sad.

Who is smarter? Jase big time! I know a lot, but it's all the useless stuff, like who's the guy that pooped his pants in the marathon, or how many fries are consumed a year by the average American? He knows real stuff. he wins

Who does the laundry? i do! Everytime. He does help me fold though. But I gather, sort, wash, dry and dump. Then after the kids go to bed, we, well, you know....fold the laundry together.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do. Well, the right side if you're laying on your back.

Who mows the lawn? Jase, once every couple of months...thanks babe

Who cooks dinner? I do, every night! He grills though, oh, and does corn, I can't do corn...ew.

Who drives? Jase, pretty much every time. I hate driving, and he's the only driver I trust, but I've gotta start driving more.

Who's more stubborn? Jase by far. He's soo stubborn, never gives in. Ok ok, you all know it's me. I get whatever I want...poor guy. Love you J

Who kissed who first? Not was a dare....the firs tnight we met...and TOTALLY hot, and we both admited that we wanted more...gotta love the college years.

Who asked out who first? Um, neither??

Who purposed? Jase of coarse. He picked out the best ring ever (still love it) and he took me out to Show Low lake...which used to be where my grandpa's house was, and he had the whole romantic thing set up and we were freezing, and he asked if I'd be his princess forever, and I answered with, "I think I'm going to throw up". and we've been happily married ever since.

Who has more siblings? I do, I have 4 sisters, he has 3 brother...I win!

Who wears the pants? We both do. I probably do more, but we both have a hard time making decisions w/o each other, and we both take equal charge of things around the house.

What do you love most about him?

- his eyes

- his determination

- his grey hair

- the way he plays with the kids, like his is now, they all in there scream laughing

- his love for the outdoors

- the way he dances, as embarassing as it is sometimes

- how good of a chiropractor he is, and how much he really cares about fixing people

-that he'll do whatever ridiculous thing I want him to do

-his mambo lips...Mmmm

-that he chose me over all of those hoochie girls that loved him

-that he reads his scriptures everyday no matter where we are

- how much he loves his mama

- his big huge bulging biceps

- that he loves to laugh

- that he knows when I need a break

- that we share an intense love for The Office


I LOVE YOU JASE! Happy birthday!!! Now go eat one of the 5 left over pumpkin pies!!!!!

I have to say, either your love has grown for him in an amazing, mushy, romantic way, or you are just sharing more and more with your friends. I love all the love you are showing Jason on the blog lately! You guys are so good together!!!

Allens, Inc. said...

You're hilarious! I love your pictures and your writing because it's so YOU! It makes me miss my frank friend of the Texas years...and beyond! I'd send you a picture of my favorite room in my house except that it probably has laundry all over, food ground into the carpet, a naked child running about in it. Oh well. When I get a good one I'll send it.
