Ryan is 26 today, I keep teasing him because now he's SO CLOSE to 30!!! Of course, since I'm 24, I'm more like 20 since you always round down with numbers under 5.... RIGHT??!! Today has been strangely, wonderfully warm.... low-mid 60s. I bet the day Ryan was born ALL THOSE YEARS AGO was not so tropical as it is today! hehe!! How about I share a few special fun facts about the special birthday boy?!!
-Ryan loves piles. That is, he "loves" to MAKE piles. All over the house. Papers, tools, clothes, you name it. Yippee
-Ryan's parents told him that he was "allergic" to chocolate when he was little (it made him really hyper) so now he doesn't really like it
-Ryan was salutatorian of his high school class... and he'll never willingly tell you that
-Ryan loves kid candy. Nerds, sweet tarts, bottle caps, you name it. But NOT chocolate!!!!???
-Ryan played/coached tennis all throughout high school and college and STILL has the patience to try to teach me!
-Ryan has a bunch of scars on his face/body and they are basically all from his brother
-Ryan still looks longingly at cars that resemble his old 95 green Saturn
-Ryan had to get stitches this past summer when he cut his finger... and it was the first time either of us had been to the emergency room in years, but it happened during the ONLY month long stretch we didn't have health insurance
-Ryan has a special walk, ask him to show you sometime
-Ryan also loves kid cereal... he was delighted when I came home with Reeces Puffs for him yesterday
-Ryan is obsessed with ebay and deal websites (woot.com, yugster.com, etc etc)
-Ryan treats every woman he encounters with such respect and kindness... thank you daddy Kirnan
-Ryan loves home improvements and anything to do with tools.... dinner and a trip to Home Depot is an ideal date
-Ryan got a coin sorter for Christmas... AND he asked for it.... AND it was his favorite present... wow
-Ryan is probably the most patient, kind, gentle, and goofy guy I have ever known
I LOVE YOU BABY!!!!!
