This guy!

Today this guy officially finished his first year of dental school (one year down, three more to go).  At times I have felt like the year dragged on, but looking back I can't believe that we have already been out here for over a year. His second year is supposed to be the hardest of the four years (to add to all the chaos we're having a baby). I couldn't be more proud of Scott and all of his hard work.That’s reason enough for a little celebratory bragging, right?  

Scott’s first year of school has been a busy one (at least the first two semesters were) and he didn’t complain once about how often he had to stay at school to finish studying or to finish a project. He tried his best to make time for the two of us, especially when he was swamped with school stuff. Scott is really good about being optimistic, even when he is feeling overwhelmed with his work load.

Scott is really smart. Scott has picked up quite a few things over the past years (hours and hours of studying). Unlike me he still remembers things that he learned while in school.

Scott is extremely hard working. He goes to school all day and he still takes the time to help out around the house. He does most of the dishes, a lot of the laundry, and has yet to ask me to ever take out the trash.

Scott is really funny, and he makes me laugh quite a bit these days. He always knows how to cheer me up when I have had a long day or when I need a break. He knows when to be silly and when to be serious.

Scott is one of the friendliest people I know. He is always encouraging me to make friends or go out of my way to make sure that others feel included. He is great about making sure everyone is involved in a conversation, which is helpful to me because I’m not a very loud person.

Scott is going to be an amazing Dad. His dad was a great example to him and he is always telling me how he can’t wait for our little girl to get here already so he can show her how much he loves her. Anytime we see our neighbor’s kids he is holding them or playing with them. He is going to be great with our little girl.

Scott is really good at giving foot (leg) rubs. Seriously all I have to do is put my feet somewhere near him and he will start rubbing them. You would think that after over a year he would have given up on rubbing my feet really often, but he hasn’t he still does it on a daily basis. (Sometimes it's only like a 20 sec rub, but hey I won't complain)

Scott always volunteers to drive, which I love. I don't hate driving, but it's nice to know that if we are going somewhere new he will be the one getting lost and not me. 

Scott trusts me enough to cut his hair for him. At first I started cutting his hair to try and save money, but I have really started to enjoy cutting his hair. It is 30 minutes of uninterrupted time for Scott and I to “hang-out”. A couple weeks ago, I even let him cut my hair… it turned out fine and feels so much more healthy.

Scott is my best friend and I couldn't imagine my life without him. He is the best husband a girl could ask for and he is working hard so that we can have a good life. 

Scott – I love you and I couldn’t be more proud of who you are and what you are doing in life. You are amazing and I am so glad that you and I are an “us”. Thank you for being you, and being such a huge part of my life!


  1. Way to go Scott!! I can't believe how fast the first year went by! I hope the next 3 are that fast so you can move back
