My Amazing Husband, Fuzzy Gerdes

I just wanted to take a moment to tell the world about my amazing husband. I am SO proud of Fuzzy, for so many reasons. Here are just a few.

1. He hosted Season 7 of Impress These Apes!, and he did it beautifully. He had great energy, was hilarious, and really kept the show flowing. Plus, we gave him the incredibly hard task of announcing the cast onstage, include those who were not cast. What a trooper!!  It was SO fun watching him every Monday and seeing what he brought to the stage. Plus, he was just so HANDSOME as Sports Show Host. See?

2. He has a great new job! He successfully survived a HARD ASS YEAR at his old job, while the company was closing the Chicago office, and kept going no matter how awful the job got. On top of that, he got a new job, and the title of Director of IT, at my favorite weekly magazine.  I love it!

3. He has signed up for the New Orleans Rock-n-Roll Marathon in February. WOO! Marathon man! Woo! New Orleans!


4. He has signed up for the 2012 Madison, Wisconsin IRON MAN!!! WHAT AN ATHLETE!! That's a 2.5 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and then a marathon! I AM SO IMPRESSED.

It is going to be an exciting year. Mostly exciting for me, because I get to watch the love of my life do things he loves and really just be happy. That's all I could ever wish for.
