Father's Day

Is it horrible of me to say that I think Father's Day is overrated?! I think its because I know that Cj will try as hard as he can to make it all about him.. we don't even have a child. Unless you count our dog Scout, which he does think he's human. Don't get me wrong, weeks before Mother's Day arrived I was announcing to anyone that would listen how excited I was, and I had a list a mile long of gifts I needed. NEEDED not wanted. Cj did wake me up to breakfast in bed, so I was a happy little girl way back when! Back to Fathers Day.. This year we were in San Diego last week which happened to be the week before Fathers Day with my family. Once Cj and I got home I ran around town getting my Dad a gift and after it was purchased, and wrapped I put Father's Day out of my mind. Horrible I know. I woke up this morning to Cj making himself breakfast. I went out to the front room in hopes that he would offer to make me some eggs and toast too, he ALWAYS does.. today he didn't. How rude. It wasn't a terrible loss though because i had stocked up on Lucky Charms and Reese's Puffs. Lucky Charms won. As I was sitting on the couch thinking about how rude my husband was for not even offering to make me breakfast it dawned on me that today was FATHER'S DAY! ( My husband is sooo lucky to have me. Let me remind everyone, We do NOT have a child.) I did feel bad that I didn't even make him breakfast. Now all day he is reminding me that it is HIS day, and that I didn't even make him breakfast in bed, and now we have to do everything HE wants. He is currently yelling at me from the kitchen to come make him some pizza for lunch. He's a doll. In all seriousness, I am so lucky to have Cj. He is the best husband a girl could ask for. He is always making me breakfast in bed for no reason at all and usually I am ticked because he's woken me up! (again, he's LUCKY to have me, right?!) He's the hardest worker I know. He's gone from early in the morning to the evening, and usually receives a couple texts a day saying "Im sick of you working come home NOW!" He is always keeping me laughing and is so fun to be around. He thinks I'm annoying because I text him 24/7, but really i just want to be with him. He should be happy his wife wants him home. He really is the greatest and I really am the luckiest girl in the world!

It wouldn't feel right to not give my Dad a little shout out too.. even though i know he will never read it. My Dad is the most amazing Man i know. Growing up I always wanted to marry someone just like my Dad and I think I did pretty good. CJ reminds me so much of my Dad. My Dad is such a hard worker, and has always provided his family with everything we need. I always call him a tight wad because he's the hugest saver, but I really look up to him and how thrifty he is with everything. My Mom has always told me that I am most like my Dad out of all the kids in our family. I would be lucky if I turn out a fraction of how amazing I think he is. I have been so blessed with the Men in my life, and I would feel so ungrateful if I didn't let them know. Happy Father's Day everyone!!
