After Doing This 18 Times, I am Pretty Good at It Now...

So today is the hubby's birthday. I still vividly remember the first birthday I celebrated with him! Every moment! And, I got him this:

Please. It was 18 years ago. Don't ask me questions I cannot answer. I can't remember a thing. Um...

So these days we are older, more pragmatic (I think) and basically all about just eating some good food and relaxing. So today, I will clean up the house, the kids will make a cake that starts out looking like this:


Which I pray will end up looking like this:

And then I will roll up my sleeves, imagine that Gordon Ramsay is in the room with me, but that he has laryngitis and an over-abundance of benevolence, and I will attempt to make this:

Which will be enjoyed with some of this:

And later when the kids are asleep, we will enjoy some of this:


With a glass or two of this:

While we watch the latest epi of this:

And at 3 am I just might get up and have more of this:

Shhhh don't tell!


Yeah, it's simple. But it's bliss...

Hmmmmm a sword, huh? Me thinkst someone doth visit the Renaissance fair on the regular.

That looks like a delish birthday meal. I hope it goes well and that Ramsey shuts his flaming pie hole while you are cooking the rack of lamb.

I'm typing this with my Glocks, but methinks it would be waaaaay easier to type with the sword. You would stay ON POINT and be SUPER SHARP. Also, I typed SHART the first time, I'll bet you're super glad I have a backspace button.

Happy birthday Josh!

I'll skip it all and go straight for the champagne!

I actually gave my husband a sword once, too. And then there was the canoe and one time, a bust of Abraham Lincoln.

In hindsight, that one wasn't too well thought out.

Happy Birthday to your husband. Have a grand celebration!
