Dinoasaur Birthday

I'm hear to wish my dinosaur husband a happy birthday.No this is not in reference to his age.
Because he's only three months older than me.
It's in reference to his name.

He honestly has the coolest name. Ever. (I have never let on to him that I think this because I haven't wanted him to get a big head ;)

When his dad was young he had thing for dinosaurs. Especially the Tyrannosaurus Rex. He told his mom that when he grew up he was going to name his child after this dinosaur.

Time passed and his dad met his mom they married and had a child. A boy. The moment came when the couple had to decide a name to bestow upon this boy child. His dad still had the wish of passing on the name of his favorite dinosaur. His mom? Not so much.

A compromise was made and my husband received his name.

Tyran Rex

See? I told you. Coolest. Name. Ever.

I keep trying to get him to go by T. Rex but he's not up for it. Yet. Maybe when we are old (or older) and have grandchildren they can call him Grandpa T. Rex. What do you think?

Love you hon! I hope you have a very Happy Birthday!
*And I hope you aren't too upset with me about this post

That is the coolest name ever. My husband loves the band Coldplay and wants to name our first son after the drummer, William Champion. It's almost as cool a name...

And thanks to Scott and the Elders Qurom newsletter, you are even closer to him going by T. Rex

T. Rex. Oh yes. It needs to go in his business card at least.

Happy birthday, Ty!

I'm coming over from Blog Stalkers Unite, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight I believe. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspopt.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥
