Our “Hot Hubby” Contest Winner


What a FUN past two weeks we have had!  We have really enjoyed looking at all of the sweet pictures that have been sent in for our “Hot Hubby” Contest and reading about why our readers love their husbands.  :)   All of YOU helped narrow it down to our top two on Facebook by voting for your favorite.  We then emailed the top two finalists yesterday and asked them to tell us why they felt that their spouse was the most deserving.  Ummm…..we really struggled with this!  Both entries were SO amazing and we felt that both couples were deserving of winning this prize!  It was close!  We finally came to a decision and are excited to announce that the winner of our $500 prize {including professional hair styling and a couples or family photo shoot} is……


1st Place:

 Tyler & Tina Knudson


Here is the winning picture that was sent in…..

…and HERE is what Tina emailed in to us…

 ” I never imagined my husband could get any hotter than on our wedding day. Well, with each child his hotness has grown to where after 8 years of marriage and 5 kids later, H.E. I.S STEAMING!!!   

Each day that I see him interact with our children it makes me fall even more in love with him. Whether it is reading them a story, making up a song at bedtime, wiping a nose, wrestling them on the ground, teaching them how to hit a ball, dancing to their favorite music or feeding one at 2 am, my love intensifies with each moment because I feel connected to him. I feel like we have a partnership and we are in this together. I feel like we have 5 wonderful little people in common and it binds us forever!   

 Tyler deserves the father and husband of the year award every year in my eyes but this year he has had to deal with a lot! In January I was put on bed rest for 9 weeks when I was pregnant with our twins. He stepped up to the plate and not only connected with the ball but he hit a HOME RUN!! Tyler was amazing! He would wake up early to pack lunches, drop the kids off at a friends house, worked a full days work, picked the kids back up, made dinner, took the kids to gymnastics, gave them baths, did the bedtime routine and then did a couple of hours more of homework after that and got to bed late. He was exhausted but still made time for me, rubbing my back, my feet and playing with my hair.   

 I keep going back to a framed saying by Dr. Seuss that hangs in my bedroom that says,
“You Know You Are In Love, When You Can’t Sleep Because Reality Is Finally Better Than Your Dreams.”

I love that saying because it describes my marriage with Tyler. Tyler is my dream come true. He is too good to be true and I have to pinch myself every day to make sure I’m not dreaming. You can’t get any better than this. He cooks on the weekends, he does the laundry without being asked if he sees it piling up, he cleans, he is sporty, he is a dedicated father and works hard for our family, he puts me ahead of everything, he makes time for me even when he is swamped with homework and he takes his children on individual dates to spend quality time with them. The biggest turn on for me is when my husband takes time for not only me, but for my children as well.

But most importantly he is my partner, my eternal companion, my best friend and my love!!
I truly am married to superman! Shhhh… Don’t tell anyone!!  

  This is why I think my hubby is oh-so-very-H.O.T!!!!!!!!!!”  

We are super excited for the two of you!!!  Tina – feel free to spill the beans to your sweetheart today OR wait to tell him on Father’s Day.  :)    We will be in contact with you this next week to plan a date for your hair “makeover” and photo shoot.  :)
