Ode to Future Husband

in All Posts

You all know how stressed I’ve been feeling lately? Future Husband is 10x more stressed than I am — he is in grad school (it worst semester he’ll ever have, too), he’s launching a business, he works in an acupuncture clinic (for free), and he works part time as an office manager of his parents’ clinic. Oh yeah, and he’s getting married!!!!!!!!!


We’re going on a holiday weekend (I’ll still be blogging), and trust me — he needs a vacation!  We both have Friday off, and I’m so excited to spend time together. 🙂


I just wanted to say THANK YOU to my Future Husband.  Future Hus, you are an amazing person, and I appreciate all your hard work and all the wonderful aspects of your personality.


You’re funny and make me laugh….


You’re dedicated to the things you love….

A2 (5)

You’re handsome….


You’re kind to others when they need a lift


You’re supportive of all my endeavors


And one day, you’ll be a great father to our little Future Husbands and See Bride Runs…


I can’t believe we first met when we were 18! Being in love with you for (almost) 5 years as been the most amazing adventure of my life.  Thank you for all your hard work!


Enough of the mushy stuff, time for FOOD! 🙂


Around 9, I had a Mojo bar…. delish! So salty! So crunchy!


And around 10:55, I realllly wanted to eat lunch. So I did.  I had a smaller-than-n0rmal meal and am sure I’ll snack again shortly.


An open-face melty cheese and chicken sammie….


And a load of veggies and fruits!


What person in your life always puts forth maximum effort?  Why do you appreciate it so much and how does it inspire you?

    You’re so sweet!!!! I need to tell my honey sweet words too! ^_^

  • Halie November 13, 2008, 9:27 am

    So sweet of you to dedicate this post to FH! Very touching 🙂

    I think my husband always puts forth the maximum effort to make sure that I am always taking care of myself, making sure I live up to the responsibility that I have taken upon myself, and that is important to me. If I didn’t have him to motivate me, I would be too lazy to do anything!

    Having a husband/future husband who loves you so much is wonderful beyond words!

  • Meghann November 13, 2008, 9:29 am

    awww.. too cute. I didn’t think he liked having his pictures on the blog? I’m sure he won’t mind in this sweet tribute though. 🙂

    Is that picture from 4th of July at Lake Eola?! I was there too! with the same 3D glasses, they really made you feel like you were watching the Fireworks on acid or something. 🙂

    Excited about hair for tonight!!

  • Meg November 13, 2008, 9:30 am

    So sweet!Your future husband is a fabulous guy!!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 13, 2008, 9:30 am

    meghann – haha yes he doesnt like his picture being on the blog (he’s shy) but i cleared the “ode to future husband” with him first. 🙂 hopefully he doesn’t mind!

    yes, that was at lake eola!

  • VeggieGirl November 13, 2008, 9:31 am


    To answer your question = my parents.

  • amy. November 13, 2008, 9:31 am

    your dedication post to your future husband made me want to cry with joy & happiness for the both of you. honestly, i admire your relationship. you are both very lucky.
    for me, my parents put the utmost effort into making my life as happy and joyous as it can be. they believe in me & have always been my biggest fan. and i love them infinitely for this.

  • ashley (sweet and natural) November 13, 2008, 9:32 am

    What a sweet post! You’re making me want to write a love note to my bf. 🙂

  • Oh She Glows November 13, 2008, 9:35 am

    Oh wow I didn’t know you met in highschool!

    My husband Eric and I met in highschool, we were together for 8 years before we married in August! You two are both so cute and look so happy together!!

    Eric is the hardest working person I know…he will always, always lend a helping hand no matter how busy he is. I am such a lucky girl. 🙂

  • Sharney November 13, 2008, 9:36 am

    AWWWW! That was sooo sweet! You guys are a really cute couple and FH seems like such a great, stand up kind of guy! Congrats on the wedding and a long, healthy and happy life together! You guys are seriously the cutest 🙂

    My husband is the person in my life who is always on the look out for me. He is kind, considerate and my biggest fan! I feel so very lucky to have him! He always cheers me on and helps put things into perspective for me when I'm feeling down & out. Thanks, hubby!!!

    Hey, I want an early lunch, too! Yesterday was a very snacky day and I really want to get back on track today. Have a great one, Caitlin!!

  • Katie November 13, 2008, 9:36 am

    That was so sweet. You are both so lucky to have found each other!

    My parents always go out of the way, even from halfway across the country, to make sure I am happy and safe and taken care of. It’s nice to have someone watching out for you all the time.

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 13, 2008, 9:38 am

    oh she glows – close! we met freshman year of college. 🙂

  • tfh November 13, 2008, 9:41 am

    Oh, dear.

    I had to pull out a few tissues for this one.

    How I love love. 🙂

    How sweet you two are. You will both be wonderful spouses and, one day, great parents. I know even if he hasn’t blogged it FH writes an Ode to FW every day in his head!

  • *Andrea* November 13, 2008, 9:44 am

    omg lovely post!!! you hubby is certainly handsome and you two look so in love 🙂 have a fabbbbulous weekend off… you two both deserve a little R&R !!

  • Jordan November 13, 2008, 9:58 am

    That was cuuuute.

    Weird, I just made the same thing for lunch.

  • Runeatrepeat November 13, 2008, 10:10 am

    That was super sweet 🙂 You guys make a very cute couple! Sorry, if you already told the story, but how did you meet?

  • Runeatrepeat November 13, 2008, 10:12 am

    Never mind, I just saw in the comments that you met in college 🙂

  • girlrunningaround November 13, 2008, 10:15 am

    Such a sweet post!

    My husband always puts forth maximum effort to make sure I am happy and healthy at all times. He not only works full time to support the both of us while I finish my law degree, but he is in grad school part-time and involved in other endeavors. Yet he finds time to cook for me, help clean, give me kisses when I need them and is an amazing daddy to our kitties. I’m a lucky girl, and I tell him that every day.

  • Kristen November 13, 2008, 10:18 am

    My DH (dear hubby)is totally my support system. He helps me so much with everything and also lets me know I can do anything I put my mind to.
    You are lucky to find someone like that so early.
    Best wishes to both of you and enjoy your time together!!

  • vegannurse November 13, 2008, 10:27 am

    Aww, this post was so sweet!! It even got me a lil’ teary-eyed!

    You guys make an awesome couple and I congratulate you guys on your upcoming wedding.

    Sending many well wishes for the new life you two will soon have together!

  • Rose November 13, 2008, 10:31 am

    This is such a sweet post. I bet FH blushed a bit 🙂

    The person that most inspires me is one of my best friends, Cat. She puts her all into everything, cares so much about the people around her and is always there.

  • Allison November 13, 2008, 10:50 am

    My rock is my boyfriend Matt. We have been friends since 6th grade, started dating the summer before my freshman year of high school (he was a sophomore), and we are still dating 5 years later. We made it through loosing my mom, him being at college for a year while I was still in high school, my dad being diagnosed with Lymphoma this year, and me now transfering to a different college (only an hour away) to persue Nutritional Science. He is always so supportive, even in my crabbiest moments. I love him SO much 🙂

  • GroundedFitness November 13, 2008, 10:51 am

    wow- busy guy! maybe i wont complain so much from now on…

    That was so sweet! he better appreciate you 😉

    I thought those were peaches on your sandwich lol

  • Julie November 13, 2008, 11:15 am

    That was the cutest post evs!

  • Marissa November 13, 2008, 11:21 am

    Aw! My husband I started dating when we were 18 and got married on our 5 year anniversary.

  • Catherine November 13, 2008, 11:26 am

    That post was seriously too sweet!! My boyfriend is definitely the person who is always there for me, keeping me happy, making me laugh, giving me advice… we met freshman year of college, a month before my 18th birthday and have been together ever since… over 5 years! He makes me appreciate life so much more and has taught me so much and has given me an awesome self-esteem and tons more confidence. I love him!

  • Jen-ucf November 13, 2008, 12:08 pm

    Aww thats so sweet! I love all the pics of you two, very cute!

    And that mojo bar looks amazing. YUM! Ive never had one but now I might have to!

  • greendogwine November 13, 2008, 12:10 pm

    LOL – i love the pictures of future husband holding the dogs 🙂 those made me laugh out loud.

    you two are adorable together!

  • Katy November 13, 2008, 12:25 pm
  • Justine November 13, 2008, 12:49 pm

    Such a cute post! 🙂
    Wow, there’s quite a few people on here who met their boyfriends in high school and have been dating for a long time! Add me to that list! My boyfriend and I started dating junior year in high school and are still together 7 years later. I’m still waitin’ on that rock, though 😉
    I’d hafta say my mom is the person who puts maximum effort into everything she does. She’s a very busy lady with work, but she still makes time for all us kids and i know she would do ANYTHING for us! I love my mama 🙂

  • D10 November 13, 2008, 1:17 pm

    Hope you have a wonderful mini vacation! I love those Mojo bars too.

  • Elsa November 13, 2008, 1:18 pm

    Hi Caitlin, that is a super sweet dedication post.
    For me it is my husband. We have been together for 5 years (married for 2) and he has taught me so much about myself and what the world has to offer. He has been my biggest supporter and loves me unconditionally. I couldn’t imagine my life without him!
    I hope your marriage brings you as much love and happiness as ours has brought us!

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina November 13, 2008, 1:25 pm

    awww! and by being dedicated to the things you love do you mean by being square? hahah. i didn’t quite get that one!!!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 13, 2008, 1:30 pm

    hahahh sabrina!!! no, he’s throwing up the university of miami “U” symbol! LOL

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina November 13, 2008, 1:39 pm

    OH hahahaha. whoops!

  • FH November 13, 2008, 1:55 pm

    First of all….

    Thank you for the lovely post. I could not do any of things i do if it was not for the FW. She is the reason i work hard. Furthermore, i am very glad this post has “sparked up” the same loving feelings all of you have for your loved ones. I hope you can all enjoy the weekend with someone you love, i know i will.

  • FH November 13, 2008, 1:57 pm

    i love to run too!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 13, 2008, 3:20 pm

    miss marie and jenna – thanks!

    jenna – and thank you for reading and delurking 🙂 yay for running!

  • Anonymous November 13, 2008, 4:22 pm

    my bf is my number one supporter and my best friend. He gives me confidence to do anything I put my mind to and always tells me I am beautiful and amazing! we have been together for 6 years and are getting married in august! yeah~ aren’t future husbands wonderful? haha!

  • I am Angie Pooh November 13, 2008, 4:32 pm

    I love all the mushiness! 🙂 I’m such a hopeless romantic. Lol.

    And holy moley, that Clif mojo bar looks really good. Are those little specks in there peanut butter?!?! I want one right now.

    To answer your question: my boyfriend has always put maximum effort in my life. He is always encouraging me to be happy, and as you read in my post, he has been completely supportive of me admitting to him that I have an eating disorder. 🙂 I am so lucky to have someone that cares about me so much, especially since sometimes I don’t care about myself enough.

  • Lyss November 13, 2008, 4:37 pm

    Mine would definitely be MY Future Husband. His goodness makes me want to be a better person, and I believe I have BECOME a better person since we’ve been together. (And we met when I was 19! Of course, he was 26… but that’s a different story.) 🙂

  • Melissa November 13, 2008, 4:53 pm

    That is awesome!!!

  • Trojan November 13, 2008, 5:42 pm

    Wow..that is one fantastic, devoted HOT man. Lucky girl you are!

  • Erin of Care to Eat November 13, 2008, 7:16 pm
