So Blake Shelton was named Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine as my social media feed is screaming loud and clear at me this morning… and guys, I have something to say about this.

Now I don’t know who does the voting for this title or what exactly goes into the voting process, and at the risk of sounding cliché or potentially embarrassing the hubs, let me tell you why Matthew France, my husband, should be voted Sexiest Man Alive.

Sexy is telling your wife who is sporting food on her yoga pants and 3-day-old dry-shampooed hair that she is beautiful.

Sexy is pointing out how great the house looks when you know it’s a mess in 75% of the rooms.

Sexy is offering to take over with the kids after a long day of work just to let your wife get out alone to frolic through Target with a hot cup of coffee.

Sexy is foot rubs on the couch after a long day.

Sexy is being the shoulder of an overly emotional mom who questioned if she did an OK job that day.

Sexy is ordering dinner out just to have a break of the normal chaotic routine.

Sexy is picking up that bottle of wine because you know it was a long week.

Sexy is a man who loves and respects his mom and dad dearly.

Sexy is a man who puts his family first above all else.

So, move over Blake Shelton. I think Matthew France needs to set up a re-do photo shoot for that magazine cover coming out on Friday. Heck, I think MANY other husbands and dads will be lining up right behind him. For that title of “Sexiest Man Alive” should be defined by oh SO much more.

Cheers to all you hard working, loving husbands and dads out there. I see your sexy and I raise a glass to YOU.
