Happy Birthday Ben! Thirty Flirty and Thriving!

It is Ben's birthday today. We have known each other for 8 of his birthdays now, and have only been physically together for 2 of them. It is especially breaking my heart today because he is THIRTY! I wanted to throw a big party, shower him with love and finally give him the birthday he deserves......Maybe 31.....Womp Womp. Well I decided to write 30 fun facts about Ben for his dirty thirty, and post some pictures of him that I love (and he will hate) Happy Birthday Bennie boo-boo-boo-boo-boo.

1) He doesn't like ketchup with his french fries
2) ...or chocolate chips in his chocolate chip cookies
3) He used to be a professional gamer bahaha, and was ranked #18 in the world at his game with 1 million players.
4) He doesn't care about clothes in the very least bit AT ALL. All he cares about is the comfort. His favorite shirts are at least 10 years old. He entertained me and let me buy him clothes for the first year of marriage, then just slowly stopped wearing the nice things I bought and brought back out the old t-shirts.
5) He loves 90's music. Blink 182, Sum 41 etc.
6) He loves Mcdonalds, not even just because it's cheap. He just really loves it.
7) Loyalty is so important to him and even though that sometimes drives me crazy in certain situations, I love that about him too.
8) He is pretty sure he had never held a baby before our own.
9) Sleep is his most valued thing. He is the opposite of a morning person. If I want to give him a gift, it is the gift of sleep.
10) He can fall asleep anywhere, anytime and in under 30 seconds flat. Like mid-conversation
11) He sleeps with his pillow over top of his face with just his lips poking out the bottom.
12) He worked towing cars in Provo for 4 years all night and has some crazy stories.
13) He doesn't like candy or dessert
14)...or breakfast. If we go out for breakfast at like 9:30 or 10am he gets a cheeseburger and a Coke.
15) He is a really really good driver. I always feel very safe and comfortable if he is driving.
16) He thinks food trucks are the worst thing in the world and hates the trendy restauraunts I love so much.
17) He has never had a cavity.
18) He has had the most random jobs in his life- he worked in a candied nut factory, video store (like VHS), a snow cone shack, UPS package boy. He gets physically ill when he smells candied nuts now.
19) I was his first girlfriend.
20) He always does the dishes, is a clean person, helps me out a ton with the housework.
21) He builds entire computers from scratch, can solve any computer problem, but is self-admittedly not a handy man whatsoever when it comes to fixing stuff around the house.
22) He is obsessed with Tesla, he hates Apple.
23) He is generally very easy going. He always lets me choose the restaurant (except food trucks), he doesn't stress out about much and totally opposite of me.
24) He has never been to a concert.
25) He is very generous. He has a list of people he is going to send large checks to if we ever get rich.
26) He is very kind. Always puts me and the kids first no questions asked.
27) He is so so funny. It takes a while to understand his very sarcastic humor. Usually, people can't tell if he is joking or not, I sometimes still don't know. He makes me laugh every day.
28) Is one of the most likable people I know. I really don't know anyone who has met him that does not like him.
29) Such a good dad. I couldn't ask for better. He is my partner and my teammate, the boys ADORE him. He changes diapers, plays games, tells the best bedtime stories, teaches them things I can't, shows them how proud he is of them, and is the best example of Christ-like behavior, hard work and how to treat their wife.
30) He is the best husband in the world. I am realizing after this time apart, how much I need him, how much comfort he gives me and how he is the bread to my buttah!
