Happy Birthday Andy!

June 9, 2008~

Andy celebrated his 27th birthday today. Happy Birthday! To celebrate, we drove down to L.A. and went to town at the clothing store Steve & Barry's. I've officially decided that's my favorite clothing store. We managed to overspend a little but we both walked out with an entire new summer wardrobe. When we got back, Andy's family was there waiting to celebrate with him. We had a BBQ and the kids did some swimming. I'll be the first to admit that (with the exception of the year I took Andy flying) I've never been great at birthdays but this year I did manage to get Andy a "cake". Throughout our marriage we've always had this ongoing disagreement. Andy hates pie with the exception of cheesecake which he considers to be a cake but I don't. So for the sake of his birthday I gave in and bought him a cheesecake so he'd have his "cake" (even though I STILL think it's a pie).

Andy and I have been married now for over 5 years and I've been privileged to get to know him quite well. We've certainly had our share of ups and downs but we've managed to live through it all with each others help. He has his flaws like everyone else but he is a wonderful man. He works very hard for his family and I hope that he knows how much he is appreciated for that. He strives to do what he loves and I love that about him. He is ambitious, assertive, and hardworking. He's the kind of guy that when he wants to do something he does it. He is the fastest learner I've ever met and he continues to amaze me at his extensive knowledge. He's also the best salesman I've ever met. He's confident in himself and that proves to be a huge asset to him and to his business. He is completely the opposite of me and yet we're quite a lot alike. He is everything that I'm not and that in my opinion makes us the perfect pair. I want him to know how much he means to me and the kids and how much we appreciate him and the person he is. He makes me proud to be his wife. I LOVE YOU, ANDY!


  1. Happy Birthday Andy!!!

  2. Glad you made his birthday special. You are a great wife!

  3. Happy birthday to Andy. Glad we could share it with you and help put on the candles to the "pie". ::wink wink::

  4. Cheesepie is definitely pie, not cake. Don't back down on that one. (you should call it cheesepie, by the way).

    Andy really makes me laugh--I had fun visiting with you guys last December. He's also super talented at what he does. I was impressed with all he did at Molly's reception, including his professional announcer voice.
