Mr. Incredible

No...I am not talking about this guy:



I am talking about this guy:



If you know him at all, you know exactly what I'm talking about. There isn't a person on the planet that can meet Mark and feel like he is just an "average guy" there is nothing "average" about him. He is amazing, smart, funny (SO funny), witty, romantic, passionate, smart, funny, compassionate, and funny all rolled into a 6 ft. 2 inch BEAUTIFUL human being. Have I mentioned he's funny? He is. Hilarious actually, he truly makes me laugh every single day, multiple times. I know people say that about people they know, to make a point that the person they are talking about is really funny, but I'm serious when I say that he makes me laugh EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! Oh, and have I mentioned he's smart? Well he is. SERIOUSLY smart. I can prove it! Last Tuesday he found out that he PASSED the Audit exam for the CPA. PASSED it. Nailed it. CONQUERED it. Totally checked it off the on your way to becoming a CPA list. Audit exam? CHECK! Yes, there are 3 more to go, and yes, the financial one is next and is sure to be a doozy, but HE DID IT once and he's going to do it again I TELL YOU WHAT! WAHOO! I am so proud of him. He works SO HARD for us and he NEVER complains. We are so blessed to have this man in our lives. I love this picture of him. If you look close you can see his sparkly lips, thanks to my sparkly pina colada lip gloss from Bath and Body Works. I wonder how that got there! Okay, that's enough, now stop looking at my husbands lips.

WAY TO GO Daddy! We love you and are SOOOOOO proud of you! Thank you for being so wonderful. Oh, and thank you for letting me use your razor this morning in the shower...except that you didn't actually know that I used it, so you might want to change the blade now...fyi...and maybe a little bit too late.

ps. um...yeah. I'm a titch late posting this....okay, a lot late. He did pass it almost a week ago after all... and my cousin may or may not have posted about it already, which we all know means she did, which is pretty pathetic of me don't you think? Thank you Kandis for your support, only you (and the other few that have actually gone through taking the CPA exam) know what he's really going through and your support means so much to both of us!

I love your handsome, glossy-lipped Mark-man too! Always a pleasure to look into a beautiful face (like Pres. Uchdorf at the RS Conference Saturday night!--sigh...). But the real beauty's on the inside. Congrats, Mark!

Good job Mark! Congratulations! It sounds like those tests are killer. What a manly glossy-lipped man you're married to, Mel!

AD said...

Hip Hooray for Mark! I know from Nikki's experience just how daunting that whole test is. Here's to Mr. Incredible!

And do any of you think like I do that Aunt Judy might have been a bit, ahem, distracted by a general authority on Saturday???? Go Judy.

Congratulations Mark! I think the lip gloss is just the right touch. :)

Lisa said...

He IS pretty incredible! A big congrats to Mark....and personally, I think he should sport the black eye mask and the red spandex suit to go along with his shiny lips!

I miss a few days of blog reading and bam, big news. I am so sad I didn't hear this big news the day it happened. All those prayers of mine are paying off. A huge congrats. How does one handsome brain hold all that information? A great big congrats.

Way to go Mark. That is great news. Keep up the good work!

After his birthday post to you, the man can do NO WRONG. Does he give lessons? We will all pay you money to wrangle our husbands and teach them in the ways of Mark!
