"Bob Sanders is my Boyfriend"

So it's no secret that I have a thing for Bob Sanders. Not so much of a sexual attraction as an awed admiration for his scary-good defensive football capabilities...seriously, the man comes in out of nowhere to get a tackle in! So I wear my jersey proudly on Fridays at work and on Sundays/Mondays/Thursdays. Well, for Christmas, Santa brought Griffin a Peyton Manning jersey. He LOVES it. Erin has one, too, but she's just not into football like Griffin, proving herself more girlie than her momma. So this morning, I went into Griffin's room to get him dressed, and told him that today was Blue Friday and that he was going to wear his Manning jersey today. He promptly told me "Mommy, you have to wear your Bob Sanders jersey, too, OK?" To which I promptly reply "Of course I will, honey, because Bob Sanders is my boyfriend, after all." He says "Yep, and Peyton Manning is my boyfriend." Haha! Griffin's got a boy crush on Peytong Manning.

So, I got the best forward yesterday. It's about none other than my boyfriend. You all DID know that he was voted Defensive Player of the Year, right?

I know where Peyton lives! Poor guy has a littlt lock on his mailbox to keep the freaks away.

I love George Clooney. Not just in the "throw me down and have your way with me" way. He is so social, kind, philanthropic, has a home in Italy, and just seems like the guy eho knows how to take care of a lady. He knows how to treat women. I want THAT. Someone to carry my bags, open the car door, rub my feet, feed me a bite of his spaghetti....the romance, the attention, the love. Ahhhhh it makes my heart seriously melt to have someone love me in that way. Scott is great, but not so romantic and loving in the small ish ways. IF George were my BF my life would be perfect.
