I Love This Guy!!

Every night before bed, after we read our scriptures and say our prayers... we've started saying 1 to 2 things we're thankful for. It helps us keep things in perspective when things don't always seem so great. I keep saying things about Matt. I am SO GRATEFUL for him! But he never lets me use that and I have to come up with something else. So I wanted to take a few minutes to say how thankful I am for my wonderful husband. He is AMAZING. I have never met a more wonderful man (except of course my Daddy!)
I am grateful for Matt because he:
-Loves me
-Takes care of me
-His smile makes me melt and gives me butterflies
-Puts up with my insecurities
-Always always makes me laugh
-Makes sacrifices for me
-Always wants to make sure that I'm happy
-Rubs my smelly feet
-Makes me dinner
-Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous Baby Blues :)
-Gets up early to iron my clothes and pack my lunch (when he doesn't have to work)
-Tells me he loves me all the time
-Asks about my day and is genuinely interested
-Is willing to learn about what I believe in, and it's important to him because it's important to me
-Helps me make the bed
-Calls me at work just to say hello and see how my day is
-Snuggles with me
-Takes me out on a date night every Friday
-Goes to the movies and watches chick-flicks and vampire-love stories with me
-Stays up late so that we can spend time together
-Always kisses me goodnight
-Wants to be a Daddy one day
-Empties the mouse traps, and kills spiders
-Hangs pictures
-Puts together all kinds of cool surround sound stuff
-Works hard to provide for us
-Works 9 hours a day, then goes to school for 4 1/2 hours so that we can have a better life
-Randomly smiles at me for no reason, and then just says "I love you."
-Goes and gets the car in the rain
-Carries groceries in the house
-Puts everything together that involves a screw driver and/or hammer
-Goes to Craft Shows with me
-Attempts to enjoy my overwhelming Holiday Cheer :)
-When I start to freak out about money, work, life, family, weight, dishes, my never ending checklist, and everything else that I worry about (and I worry about EVERYTHING!) He smiles, holds me, and assures me that everything is going to be okay.

He is an incredible man. He has the kindest heart, and is the sweetest person I've ever met. Sorry... I know this post will probably induce barfing because I can't stop gushing. But I could go on for hours about everything about Matty that I am grateful for. I love him so much! I can't wait until the day that we can say we'll get to be together for eternity.

Walking down the aisle and seeing this wonderful man smiling at me was the best moment of my life.
