I Love You Adrienne, Happy Adrienne Day!


It’s Adrienne Day! If that’s not a good reason to write something new on this rusty robot I can’t imagine what is. Let me give you fair warning though, if you don’t want to hear me gush about my wife just go away now. I’m serious; I’m totally going to do it. Even worse; I totally mean it.

I’m sitting across from Adrienne right now and she has no idea I’m writing this. We are playing songs and making mix tapes. We can still call them that right? It just isn’t the same to call them “mix cds” or, ugh!, just “playlists”. I’m trying to think of things more awesome that sitting here playing songs for each other and talking, but I’m not coming up with a very long list.

We have had a really crazy past year or so. Moving, me being in the hospital on Christmas Eve and doing my best impression of someone who is going to die, me on LOTS of airplanes… but Adrienne just hung in there through it all. I got laid off for the first time in my life shortly after the hospital stay and there was no freak out then either. She wasn’t worried at all because she believes in me. She makes ME believe in me.

I can’t tell you how many times I have been stressed about something I have to do and Adrienne just says something like, “Seriously? You will be amazing.” and she means it. I think, “Well then, there’s not a chance in hell I’m letting her down!”

I’m definitely a better me with her around than I would be on my own.

Also, she is hot.

Take a minute out of your busy day and wish Adrienne a happy Adrienne Day with a comment!

What is Adrienne Day?

I hate Valentine’s day. It is a cheesy, commercial mess of a holiday. I can’t stand it. Adrienne, on the other hand, I love. So, when were were dating and Valentine’s day was approaching I decided to take control over my own holiday destiny and I invented Adrienne Day. I arbitrarily chose February 9th and we have been celebrating it ever since.

  1. Happy Adrienne Day to you, Adrienne! Someone named similarly like me can only be awesome!

    But wait… you got laid off, Josh? Did you find something new, though? And what was that sickness at XMas? Let me look in this blog’s archive for more info! Damn Twitter for making me slack on reading actual blogs!

    You are correct – Adrienne is the best! When we were all very little and she was even littler, we used to fight over who got to sit next to her at the dinner table. And I’m pretty sure we’re all exercising some restraint not to have that same fight at every family get-together these days. Really it’s just a foregone conclusion that you would win the fight, and then she’d end up sitting between two of your kids anyway.

    Happy Adrienne Day!

    Is it gauche of me to comment in a list of comments aimed at me? I just want to say thank you to all these lovely lovely people who wished me a nice day and said sweet things about me. Especially Bess who said I was hot. I mean, come on. All the 34-year-olds in the house need that! and thanks for saying you’d fight to sit by me. I expect to see that played out in person next time. Can I also go on record as saying that it’s awesome to get credit for believing in Josh? That’s like getting credit for believing there’s water. You guys know him. Who wouldn’t believe in that guy? I am such a lucky girl.
