We celebrated a birthday around these parts. I am officially married to an older man. Well..for three weeks that is...until I join the club. The hubs turned thirty yesterday. And well.. of course I had to remind him of his old man status with some super obnoxious balloons.
We celebrated by going out to dinner with some friends over the weekend and ate a home cooked meal on his actual birthday. Salmon and couscous per his request. yeah..I know. Only my husband asks for such a healthy birthday meal. My birthday meal requests almost always involve chocolate and stretchy pants.
|I decided to get fancy at the last minute and make some place card holders. Easiest thing ever.|
Grab some extra wine corks..we collect ours in a jar. Cut off part of the back and then cut a slit
on top. I did these in five minutes...hence the crookedly cut paper and messy handwriting. :0
|I couldn't resist. :)|
And as we celebrated this momentous birthday I was reminded once again just why I love this
guy so much. I was thanked countless times for the birthday meal which to be honest was really
easy and simple. When I hounded him for special birthday requests/birthday dinner location
ideas/ gift ideas he would respond with..whatever you think.whatever is easy and not too
expensive. Whatever is most convenient for everyone else. Oh..I love him so. He gets it. He
doesn't need extravagant, he doesn't need over the top. He enjoys the little things... like
obnoxious balloons and little happy birthday signs hidden throughout the house. He gets it..
and he reminds me to get it too.
