Just the facts, ma'am. The birthday facts.


Today is MFD's birthday. We do birthdays big in our house. Not usually gift-wise, but experience-wise. And certainly do whatever the hell you want-wise. I'm taking a page out of Kristin's book and giving you some MFD facts. You read the mundane details of my life, why not share some details of his? Aside from what you get monthly in Shit MFD Said, of course.

1. He is a huge Star Wars geek. His favorite of the movies is Empire Strikes Back and his favorite character is Han Solo. His favorite merchandise is the eleventy billion t-shirts, vintage toys, and wall art we own.
2. He would rather watch the sunset than the sunrise.
3. His idea of a perfect pizza is a plain pizza from Brother's.
4. The majority of his free time is spent watching YouTube videos he thinks are funny.
5. Other current favorite pastime: fishing.
6. When he was little, he wanted to be an actor.
7. He takes his coffee with skim milk and one Splenda.
8. If he could have personally witnessed anything in history, he would've liked to see the MLK I Have a Dream Speech, the surrender of Robert E. Lee, and Jesus perform the loaves and the fishes miracle.
9. Lady celebrities he loves: Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler (Shit MFD Said note: "They're the same. Put them together."), Sofia Vergara, Taylor Swift (Shit MFD Said note: "I can't believe I'm saying this. I used to hate her, especially when she sang with Stevie Nicks and butchered it. I think she was probably nervous. But I like how she's cool with her fans and I like her and I'm not ashamed to say it.), Shirley MacLaine
10. He has a vision board and there's only one thing left to achieve on the current one.
11. Movies that always make him laugh: Airplane, Borat
12. The political issue that most concerns him is China. China China China China China. (Shit MFD Said note: put down that I said that). Education, corporate accountability and Citizens United being repealed.
13. He makes friends wherever he goes. I call him the Mayor.
14. He really does want to be a Mayor one day.
15. He is a musician and he loves music. His favorite bands are Foo Fighters, Beatles, Fleetwood Mac. Favorite singers include Billy Joel, Harry Connick Jr., Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse.
16. He is a big picture, big idea person.
17. In response to me saying tell me something random: "I need a haircut."
18. His favorite kind of cake is Carvel Ice Cream Cake and his favorite homemade cake is chocolate with vanilla icing.
19. He is 38 today.


1. She loves to call people sunshine and is typically a ray of sunshine herself. See above.
2. Debbie is pretty much up for anything. We've done a ton of fun things together and we're not nearly finished.
3. She is always very well put together - clothes, accessories, hair, makeup - always on point.
4. We share a love of potty humor and laugh loudly and long about ridiculous, immature things.
5. She makes beautiful jewelry.
6. She also makes the best deviled eggs.
7. She knows her shit - I learned a lot from her when she was my boss. We no longer work together but she remains a part of my family.
8. Her cats are named Kramer and Elaine.
9. She makes me laugh really hard when she talks in accents.
10. MFD's contribution: "She likes to say listen up."

  1. My guy would say Sofia Vergara as well. My guy isn't really into having a celebrity love, but if he could have one...it would be her. The three events in #8 would all be pretty impressive events to witness. I have yet to meet a Star Wars geek that doesn't love Han Solo. If they say they don't, I swear they are not telling the truth.

  5. Happy Birthday MFD!! My husband lurves Star Wars as well. Currently, most of his "decor" (and I use that term loosely) is confined to the man cave but it's starting to eek out into the rest of the house. Sigh.

  6. I'm impressed he likes sunset or sunrise, when I ask Tyson to watch either he rolls his eyes. He's not a nature guy.

    Tyson could be a mayor too, no matter where we go he's made a friend out of someone.

  7. Plain pizza huh? this surprises me for some reason. I agree on sunset- way too early. He has my vote.

    She sounds like my kind of person. you can't go wrong with up for anything and someone that makes deviled eggs.

  9. It's my hubby and my birthday month as well. We're the 8th and 9th respectively. It's a big birthday month for my family. My departed maternal gram, my aunt, my departed uncle, my mother, my two of my cousins (one the same day as me), my uncle/cousin all have September birthdays. Happy September! happy birthday MFD and Debbie!

  10. 2 of my favorite people in the universe. Awesome that Mike Doyle has a vision board. Totally awesome. This is an excellent idea for a birthday tribute. I had no idea on some of these. I love the Foo Fighters! #thatherosong. Love this post to infinity and beyond. God and Goddess speed to both of these September 1st babies!
    Love, Your Momma

    I used to love calling people sunshine. then one day someone called me moonbeam in response and i was like, um.... lol.

  13. Oh MFD, I like-a you. I think it takes a special kind of person to enjoy Borat for all of its disgusting ridiculousness. I find it hilarious.

  14. Happy Birthday MFD!! Hope you have a wonderful day. Carvel ice cream cakes are the best!

  15. Happy birthday to MFD and Debbie! I rented and watched all 3 classic Star Wars movies this last weekend, and Solo is still my favorite character too, although Return of the Jedi is my favorite movie (because Ewoks, haha). Give me young Harrison Ford all day long though please!

    ReplyDelete
  16. ooooo, airplane and borat always make me laugh too! And #4 is completely my jam.

    Your husband (and your relationship with him) always sounds hilarious and fun. My kinda thing. Happy birthday to him!! PS I love that he has a vision board!

  17. Happy birthday to MFD! Such a cool dude! And happy birthday to Debbie too! I like when a man can admit that he likes T Swizzle. He should so be a mayor one day!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Happy Birthday Mr. Mayor. Love that his hair made an appearance on the list. Very important. Debbie sounds like a pretty cool chick and glad you have a friend like that to keep you laughing!

  19. Happy birthday MFD & Debbie! Hopefully they've both had great days. Nowt wrong with being a Star Wars fan, good on you for dealing with the memorabilia though! Loving all the ocean themed photos too :)

  20. I agree with his comment about Taylor Swift and lol @ China comment. My husband and Lola's birthdays are this week as well. We will celebrate travel-wise for the long weekend.

  21. i can appreciate #4, since my hubs is always trying to show me youtube clips that he THINKS are funny 99% of the time i find them super stupid however maybe you'll both appreciate "english bulldog diesel - the box lover" if you haven't seen it already.
    happy birthdays all around!!

  22. Debbie is the best and I would not have known about your amazing blog without her in my life. Happy Birthday Sunshine!! and Happy Birthday to MFD! Tell him I met Harry Connick Jr once, he's super tall and his wife is super hot! In high school I worked at a toy store and they came shopping there once with their kids. They were both very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hope they both have a wonderful birthday!

    MFD and Scott have much in common. When we eventually all get together in eleventy billion years, they can talk about Star Wars and watch terrible YouTube videos while eating ice cream cake.

  24. Happy Birthday to your husband and Debbie! My husband is also pro sunset vs. sunrise person. I prefer sunrise. Hope you guys have a great time celebrating! Oh and I also love Debbie's cats names...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Happy birthday to him! Have so much fun celebrating!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your husband sounds like an all-around good guy! I can't say that about all the husbands I meet. And your ex-boss sounds awesome, a great mentor. It's awesome when coworkers can become friends (most of the time!).

    ReplyDelete
  27. Happy birthday to SMD and Debbie!
    I don't even want to admit how much time I spend watching YouTube videos... mostly of cute animals doing cute things. lol
    Ice cream cake. Genius favorite.

  28. Happy happy day to the 2 blonde birthday celebrators! My blonde son will celebrate his tomorrow! There are so many comments for this post! It amazes me how many things MFD and I agree on!

  31. Happy birthday to YOUR man too! So you and I have the same birthday, and our significant others have birthdays 5 days apart. My first thought: Pisces must be compatible with whatever they are.

    SO agree with the repeal of Citizens United being extremely important. Tell MFD I'm with him on that. And, if he is interested in being mayor of a Texas city, I can help him out with that...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would much rather watch the sunset than sunrise too. The picture of him in the back of the canoe makes me lol. I've seen my boyfriend do that and the front end is like out of the water. Our canoe is like 18 feet long so it just looks hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  33. MFD and I would get along smashingly. I would take a cheese pizza any day. I used to only eat that when I was a kid.

    Happy birthday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Happy Birthday to MFD! And I am not a morning person so I agree with him on sunsets :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. You're so nice to make these sweet lists. Happy Birthday MFD!

    ReplyDelete
  36. First happy birthday MFD! Second this is a super cool post! I like all these fun facts! I might have to steal this in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy birthday to your people!! One thing I love about this type of post is seeing how well people know their SOs and how even the littlest things about them become part of your "story" together. So sweet. Cheers MFD!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Happy birthday MFD! My husband feels you on the YouTube videos. I hope you become mayor. It seems like a good fit. Enjoy the cape, pArticularly the sunset!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. He sounds like he'd be a great mayor! Especially with all that progress on his vision board! Impressive! Happy birthday to him!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks everyone. You are too kind. Thanks Steph for posting such nice things and not that I take way too long doing number 2 on he poo bucket.

    Lovingly yours....

    The Mayor

    ReplyDelete
  41. lol.. i was just reading The Mayor's comment..
    Happy Birthday MFD! You seem like a cool person.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Foo Fighters AND Fleetwood Mac?! I just saw them both this year! I'm with him on Star Wars, big idea/picture ideology, musician-ing (alto sax all the way- woohoo!), and Carvel ice cream cake... there really is nothing better. You guys seem to balance each other out really well. And he even commented! Happy birthday Mayor/MFD!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm glad you decided to do this! These are always such fun posts to read because you're right: we always get to hear all about the blogger but not as much about the important people the blogger's life.

    I loved his comment about Taylor Swift. Haha.

    I hope MFD and Debbie both had wonderful birthdays!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Happy Birthday MFD & Debbie!! I like his taste in women!! except for maybe taylor swift haha

    ReplyDelete
  45. Happy very late Birthday to MFD!! and to Debbie! This was such a fun post! I'm pretty sure P would say something similar, to "I need a haircut" as a random comment, that or a pirate joke. Hope you guys are having THE BEST trip!!!
