happy birthday, kell!

Happy birthday to my sweet husband!

This year marks our 9th birthday together, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. If you know Kell, you probably know that this post will probably be his worst nightmare – he hates being the center of attention, which frankly, is inevitable on your birthday. Still, I went on with my A to Z list in hopes he’ll forgive me later.

Kell A to Z

All Star athlete – tennis, football, golf, you name it…
Blizzards at Dairy Queen – no chocolate sauce
Country-fried steak
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
Fierce Mississippi State fan
Gifts of safety”
History buff
Impeccable driver
June birthdays (both of us!)
Karate Kid (“Sweep the leg!”)
Loyal friend
Married me!
Navy New Balance shoes
Orange Gatorade
Pet parent
Quiet… sometimes
Strings his own tennis racquets
Tell Olive she’s pretty”
Undefeated at Brickbreaker on his Blackberry
Vacuums the house without being asked
Watched every episode of 90210 in chronological order…twice
eXcellent son-in-law
Yard pro
Zzzz… and snores.

Happy Birthday, Kell! I love you!

Mary Straton, I did not need a blog to tell me how wonderful my son-in-love is, but you captured his personality wonderfully. MOM
