This post was entirely inspired by my blogger friend, Comfortably Domestic (sorry, I can’t find the original 25 Things post).
Raising a puppy is hard work. It sucks up all of your energy until you are a zombie. Nothing is harder than being a zombie, except for living with another zombie.
Jonathan and I are two crazy zombies walking around in a daze.
I was saving this post until Christmas, but I think it’s time to post a little early to remind myself of why I’m here. In California. With a 6’2″ Asian man. And a pug puppy.
25 Reasons my Boyfriend is Wonderful:
1-He brings me coffee on random mornings.
2-The dates he plans are always adventurous.
3-He asked my dad’s permission before moving in with me.
4-He likes the idea of dressing Josie in booties for cold weather.
5-He talks about camping gear and frequently stops by REI, even though he’s the most “indoors kid” I’ve ever met.
6-He loves his family. And my family.
7-He rubs my back whenever I ask him (and if I have puppy dog eyes).
8-He eats all of the food I cook with a smile. This came in very handy when I attempted orange chicken the other night. blergh
9-He *reluctantly* gets pedicures. Now he loves them.
10-He drops everything he’s doing to help friends and I don’t think he’s missed a birthday party yet!
11-He helps me with blog ideas and listens to my constant bloggy-babble. Sometimes even letting me read funny Pioneer Woman posts outloud.
12-If he gets a mosquito bite, it will swell up to the size of a baseball and it’s pathetically adorable.
13-He waves his head back and forth like a happy puppy when he is pleased. This is hard to explain without seeing it, but imagine the look of a puppy when you scratch their chin.
14-He drags me to chick flicks and I drag him to action movies.
15-That Asian smell 🙂
16-His tootie booty.
17-The chickenpox scar above his right eyebrow.
18-His great memory for facts and details. Dude knows everything, I swear.
19-The way he constantly searches for my hand to hold.
20-The way our taste buds are so similar, especially when it comes to wine. This comes in handy when you want to buy a few bottles.
21-His nickname for our herbs is “our babies” and his nickname for Josie is “tacoface”.
22-In order to visit me in Minnesota, he bought huge snowboots (yes, from REI).
23-His earlobes. So soft.
24-His third nipple (aka his “nubbin”…he’s gonna kill me).
25-The way he has memorized every D-list actor in existence.
I could go on.
But I won’t.
I love him.
For those of you with significant others, what are your reasons?
