Daddy's Birthday

So my hubby turned the big 2-8 last week and I was too busy to write about it. But at least I tried to make it a special day for him!

Brennan and I picked him and two of his friends up from work and went to Ruby's for a birthday lunch. Yummy... Then after we dropped him off we headed to Home Depot to get his present from my parents. When my mom asked me what to get for him this year, I knew exactly what he'd want - a grill. Ours couldn't fit it on the truck and was in rough shape anyways, so it didn't make it to FL with us. And since we've moved, I've heard Brian say a million times that "today would be the perfect day to grill!"

I was also excited to have something to wrap for him. He has wanted to go see his "bff" who lives in Cali for a few years now, but it's just hard to find the time/money to get out there. I told him that if he wanted, a plane ticket would be his bday present from me. He's been working so hard at his new job and I'm so proud of him. He really deserves it. So he booked the flight and is PUMPED to go.

Anywho, after getting the grill, the kiddo and I ran to the grocery store to grab some stuff for dinner (since Daddy refused to put in his dinner request til lunch that day!). Once he was laying down for his nap at home, I began my birthday marathon. Wrapped up the grill, signed the cards, decorated a bit, made and decorated the banana cupcakes, and started dinner.

Once Bri got home from work, we had a very low-key evening. Dinner, candles, cupcakes, and gift-opening. He was so surprised and excited about his grill. It warmed my heart to see him smile like that. While we miss our families and I'm sure Brian would want to celebrate his special day with them, we both agreed that it was kind of nice to celebrate as just our family of 3. While it's an adjustment not to have our families around, it brings the 3 of us closer. And that my friends, is priceless.

I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
