The year 1975 was a big one. Some pretty note-worthy events occurred in the year of the Rabbit. Bic launched the first ever disposable razor, Saturday Night Live debuted on NBC and JVC introduced VHS tapes.
But another even moremomentous event occurred which deserves the highest of regard. Thirty-five years ago today, my hubby was born to this world.
And, being that he’s the birthday boy, the man of honor, I wanted to share a few little tidbits about the guy I like to call…Mindy’s husband.
Jeremy is an enthusiast of all things outdoors. The man hunts, fishes (is that a word?), hikes, camps, rides, bikes and basically involves himself with any activity that makes my skin crawl a teensy bit. He listens to techno/dance music (you know the kind…it sounds like people wearing full-body armor,hitting trash cans together while moaning in despair?) and covets science fiction movies and novels (read: no quivering loins or sinewy biceps to be found.) He watches Nascar and Battlestar Galactica, designs web pages and can play a mean game of Barbies. He’s taken coffee table handstands to almost Olympic levels and has spent many an afternoon walking around the house with two children attached to his ankles like human moon boots.
I can say with the utmost of certainty that I don’t think I could have found a better person with whom to live my life. He’s the Coke to my Pepsi, the Thousand Island to my Ranch, the honesty to my sarcasm and the calming rainto my tumultuous storm.
He’sJack’s Superman and Avery’s Prince Charming. And, he’s my best friend.
The world has been blessed with a generous, loving and compassionate man for thirty-five years andI’ve been blessed with knowing a truly good person.
Happy Birthday to you, Jeremy.
Love you ’til the end of time (or at least until I get that private invitation to play ‘den mom’ to the Thunder from Down Under),
I hope he has a happy birthday. So, he hunts, fishes, and is into sci fi? And here I thought only my family was that weird. lol
Yep, we call him an enigma around these parts.
P.S. He’ll be glad to kow he’s not alone. =)
That is probably the cutest picture ever! Happy Birthday to Jeremy! And wow to you for writing a great tribute to him. Obviously the urge to put the pillow over his face while he sleeps hasn’t set in yet….just kidding!!
Thanks! I decided to leave the part about causing him bodily harm out, since it’s his birthday and all. =)

Happy Birthday to Jeremy. My husband is also an avid fisher and hunter!
And my husband wishes he was a Lumberjack. Watches AxMen religiously. =)
This made me cry a little bit, Min. You did land a great guy! Happy birthday to my absolute favorite brother-in-law!
It actually made me tear up a bit as I was writing it. Which I don’t do. =)
Y’all certainly do make a cute couple. Happy Birthday Mindy’s Husband.
Thanks Mindee! I, of course, chose a picture which makes me look my thinnest, 3/4s of my body hidden behind him. =)
Happy Birthday to your hubby! I think you should go buy yourself some shoes in celebration of this momentous occasion….or is it just me who does that?
Oh, definitely new shoes and handbags are in order. I mean, we need to celebrate, right? =)
Tell your hubby Happy Birthday!!
Will do that Denise! Thanks for stopping by! =)
What a sweet birthday post to your hubby!
Thank you for sharing my SITS day today!
Thank you, and you are so welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts! =)
Happy Birthday Jeremy!
He thanks you! Thanks for stopping by to leave him birthday wishes! =)

Ya’ll are so cuuute 🙂
Happy Birthday Jer! I love sci-fi too, but only deep sea fishing. But I love watching Whale Wars -NOT for the fishing – since THAT fishing is bad. I digress…
Wonderful, wonderful post on your super awesome hubby!
We watch Whale Wars too. Which usually causes me to look at Jer accusingly because he’s a hunter. He always reminds me that he doesn’t hunt WHALES. Whatever. =)
That’s so nice Mindy! Happy Birthday Jeremy
Thanks Val! I’m trying to butter him up so he’ll build my website! =)
Sinewy muscles are way overrated if you ask me. Looks like you all are a great couple – that is probably the best birthday present ever!
Thanks Marly! And I’ll take what I’ve got over those sinewy muscles any day of the week. Well, most days of the week. =)
Yall are such a cute couple. Jer sounds just like my hubby. Okay maybe 20 yrs ago! LOL!
Happy B-Day Jer!
Thanks Heather! It’s taken us a few years but I think we’re finally in our right groove. =)
Ooops, I am a little late but HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEREMY.
He says “Thank you” Christina! =)
Awww, how sweet is that! The love you have for him just shines through! May you have at least the next 35 years together! 🙂
Thank you Shelli! Me too! =)
