To The Unsung Hero Behind The Super Agent!

Today my husband Ted, turned 55.

He looks younger and acts MUCH younger(snicker).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is tradition in my home that on your birthday I will cook you whatever your favorite meal is. I am a phenomenal cook(really really) and I love to show my love for people by feeding them.

My Hubby asks for the same thing every year- Beef Stroganoff with steamed asparagus and rolls with shrimp cocktail as the appetizer. So this morning I was up early and managed to have my things done enough and started cooking. I love to cook, it relaxes me and makes me feel happy! I made everything from scratch except the rolls(I am not all that hot with breads).

Our oldest son Josh(21) came with his girlfriend and our youngest Chris (17) even came out of his room long enough to eat and participate(lol). Our mini- Dachshund Rosie, who is a Daddies girl for sure, gave kisses and wagged her tale almost off!

We had a wonderful late lunch and a great cake, a local place makes amazing frozen custard cakes,
oh my...12 zillion calories a slice, but heaven for sure!

I was standing in the the Hallmark store reading cards and I found the perfect one, then I was thinking about something someone said to me once about love. That love means whatever is the best for everyone involved . Irealized that to me, my husband means love. He is the best for me and I for him, even after all this time. He has encouraged me through so many changes and fears and joys. He is the rock I have always launched from. To para phrase something I once read...

" He is simply my best time, my sweetest laughter and most precious dream. And still he finds new ways to love me. Always we will be beside and behind one another. Always."

So today I sing "Happy Birthday" while I think "Amazing Grace"

Cindy- Don't I know it...millimeter by millimeter it all goes south! lol

By the way everyone, the Title of the blog is meant to be a bit tongue in cheek..rather than egomaniacal.

My hubby always calls me superagent....lol

Vanessa,

I don't either I shake a little spice in my hand until it looks "just right" and throw it in...this group is for original recipes. I would love to have you post...a little shake of this and a little shake of that will suffice...all of us on there love to cook.  I plan to compile an AR cookbook...after I get 500 recipes...wouldn't that be a great gift at the close??? With a little note from you and a business card stapled inside?

Vanessa - This is a great tribute post for your husband.  I am going to feature this in Family Ties.  Ted looks like a fun guy.  Please send me any leftover cake.  I am on a doctor-recommended diet of 24 zillion calories daily.

LMAO!!! Ok Jason, it then sounds like I can help with that! 24 zillion huh?!

Ted is a wonderfully funny and fun guy! My sister calls him "the funny little man you married" because he is so hysterical!

Thanks for the feature, I really think it is important to say that others give us the strength and love to move up and forward and to give them the appreciation due.

Happy Holidays!

Vanessa,

No way your husband is 55. He looks younger.

Good for him and you!

Cheers!  Mr. C. KIM McGuire.  N. Padre Island, TX.  I'd better eat more veggiemitey sandwiches to look young in the future.  :)

Happy Birthday to Ted!

We have the same tradition at our address. . .birthday person gets to choose what they have for dinner.  I must be a good cook, because they always choose to eat one of my dishes (rather than eat out)!

Very nice sentiments about love.  I feel that way about my husband too -- we've been through a lot together over the years and are even more deeply in love.

Having a guy with a sense of humor makes marriage so much easier, doesn't it!  I'm sure he appreciated this great present.

Vanessa-What a wonderful woman you are to make such a beautiful post for your hubby.  Happy Belated Birthday to him and what an amazing job you did on that cake.  I wouldn't want my hubby to read your post because he'd be saying "remember when..."
