Scott

Look at my stud muffin strutting his stuff at the bowling alley. This picture is actually quite funny.....it looks like he's walking down a runway. Anyway, that's not the reason that I am writing this blog. Cori Robinson wrote an awesome blog about how wonderful her husband is, and I pretended like I was tagged in doing this (even though it wasn't a tag blog) because I would also like to write about how wonderful my husband is. Scott has been working so hard this semester. He goes to school full time, works about 30 hours a week, and does a great job at his calling. In the midst of all of this, he tries his hardest to spend as much time with Hannah and me as he can. I know he has a lot of pressure on him, mostly from me to do well in school, and I know it has been stressful for him. He is doing very well for his first semester at BYU in incredibly hard classes and I am proud of him. The minute he gets home from work, he usually goes off to our bedroom to study. Poor thing is so tired by the end of the day that he usually starts to fall asleep while he's reading. I know that he is doing all of this for our family. He wants to do well in college so that he can provide for us in the future and I am so grateful for that (even if I complain often that I don't get to spend enough time with him). He has also been incredibly great about working while going to school so that I can stay home with Hannah, even though I know it would be a lot easier for him if I were to work.

Scott and I also love a lot of the same things. I used to think that I always had to be out doing things to have fun, but now I know that we can have a great time together watching The Office or any other mindless TV show, or reading Harry Potter together.

Scott's also a wonderful father. He loves to play with Hannah. He reads to her, sings to her, and always has to get her after she's woken up from a nap because he's excited to see her. I am so glad that I married him; I couldn't have asked for a better man!

Now I tag you all to write something nice about your spouse. Scroll down for another post!

Maran I love it! I'm so glad I got to read about Scott, I always knew that you married a gem! I love your idea to make it a tag. I think we'd all be alot happier if we took the time to appreciate our spouse.

Way to go and great idea on tagging all bloggers.lol. Trent and I are the same, we totally could hang out by ourselves forever. When we lived in Utah we had couples knocking on our door daily to come out and get ice cream or have game night but we never would go because we just liked sitting on our couch watching some shows. We are stick to ourselves people. Isn't GREAT to be married to your best friend for an eternity!!! Life couldn't get better. Way to go Scott, on going to school, plus working, plus having a beautiful wife, plus an adorable little girl! That's hard but he seems to be great at it! Props for Scott!

I'm so so glad you're happy! I had read Cori's blog, and was also inspired to think about my husband and the things I'm grateful for. Thanks for the tag...I'm sure you'll see yet another blog post in the next few days about my man!
Way to go Scott!

WE LOVE YOU SCOTT!! Couldn't have asked for a better husband for my baby and daddy for my granddaughter who happens to look just like her dad. :)
You obviously love your family and it will be worth the sacrifices now for a better tomorrow. Love ya.

May I add something to your list... how about great sense of humor! Scott always makes me laugh and he is quick to find the "Funny" in things. We love Scott as a brother-in-law and think you guys are perfect for each other!

I agree with everyone else. Scott's a great guy. He's kind, funny, works hard, smart, treats his family well, and is always looking for ways to help everyone out. You guys are lucky to have each other.
