My dear husband
My Michael is turning 37 years young this Thursday. I know I am a bit biased, but he looks freakin' fantastic! I'm not kidding. If I could get him to pose for a sexy pic I'd post it on here for you guys to admire his body of work (so to speak). But maybe you guys just have to trust me on this one...
As some of you know he has been trying to do the Paleo diet. This is responsible for the quick fat loss he's experienced without a doubt, but I still think it is unhealthy and a bit cultish. Anyway, he has a blog where he has talked about such things... in case you didn't know it's Southern Fried Paleo http://southernfriedpaleo.blogspot.com/2010/08/beefcakebeefcake.html
Which is why it is cool that they do this charity thing that Michael is now participating in, on his birthday weekend. It's been going on for 5 years now, and they have raised over 2 million dollars, which as Michael put it, it's not Oprah big, but still significant. To read more about the charity itself go here:

In any case, it is a crazy workout. But the fact that so many people are willing to do it to raise money for these charities is pretty cool.
On a cute side note, when I was working out to get in shape for our wedding, Michael designed a cross fit type workout for me. As many of you know I am a weakling, and in no way shape or form could I ever do any of these as prescribed. He adjusted "Fight Gone Bad" for me and renamed it "Minor Scuffle Gone Bad". I can't remember who I told about this that thought the amazing part of the story was not that he redid one for me, but that he renamed it. LOL You can throw up now.
Anyway, Michael has a touch of OCD, so he takes this working out business very seriously. He has slowly built himself a gym in the warehouse of the green house where he has everything from weights with rubber plates, to a climbing rope, kettle bells, you name it. It is without a doubt the best gym in Elbert County.
Why am I telling you this? Well I love my husband. He can be a pain in the ass, and he denied me my first pregnancy craving (which he will pay for for the rest of his life), but he really works hard. Not only does he work hard in our business day to day, but he works hard at working out, and then he comes home and puts up with a whiny pregnant wife who sometimes makes him eat his food at another table so she won't smell it, or refuses to cook certain things for him, or just plain cries for no apparent reason. Plus, he is terribly hot!
His birthday is this Thursday, and he has to make his fund raising goal in just one week, because like most men, he decided he was doing this one week before the event- leaving him little time. I figure the least I can do is help spread the word to help him reach his goal, after all it is for charity...
