Of course we had a rockin' party, because I love a good party, and my husbands 30th just had to be the best! We had a Casino Night, complete with blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, karaoke and bingo! The chips were flowing freely and the lucky couples with the most chips at the end of the night won awesome prizes! (okay, they were from the dollar tree, but don't tell!) Most of Jake's dental buddies were there to party the night away, and it was said by many that it was the best party they had ever been too!! Woo hoo! It was a great night.
These are some of the dental school widows! These girls are awesome!

Now for a few words regarding the man who we spent the weekend celebrating.
My husband is amazing. Hummm...I wish there were a better word than that. Maybe I should say phenomenal! Or unbelievable, or incredible....he's just fantastic!
I love him so much. He is always everything that I ever need him to be. He is level headed and SO smart, he is hilarious, and can make me laugh even when I am determined to have a bad attitude! His kids are head over hills in love with him because he is so good to them. He comes home from 12 hours of school and spends an hour playing batman with Jaxon and cuddling with Sage. When Jake walks in the door at night the kids are overjoyed. It's really cute. Today we went to surprise Jake at school and he just beamed with pride as all of his friends told him how cute his kids were. My kids don't know how lucky they are.
Did I mention that he is so stinking smart? He is the #1 student in his dental class at OHSU, and has been ever since the first semester. Every now and again I really think about that and it blows me away. He is such a hard worker, and I can't count how many times he has stayed up all night long studying for a big test. He knows how important it is to be a good provider for his family, and he is determined to be the best.
More important than that though, is how much Jake loves me!! : ) He tells me on a very regular basis that he loves me, that I am so beautiful, and that he is the luckiest man on earth to be married to me. And I'm not even making this stuff up!! I love that we have been married long enough to feel like we've been married forever. I just can't remember him not always being around. He is the love of my life, and I'm so happy that he chose me to be the love of his life.
Happy Birthday Jake!
I love you!
