Today my man turns thirty-one. We celebrated with family on Friday night at John's Incredible Pizza - I don't know who had more fun at the arcade, the kids or the Nerd. :) The kids gifted him with handpicked cards and presents from the dollar store. That man is now the proud owner of several plastic sports cups, a ball gun, slime, and more. I am sure the cards - a Transformers one from the Drama Queen, a dinosaur one from the Beast, and a Dora the Explorer one from the Spud - are now prominently displayed in his cubicle.
As for me, I will buy the man whatever he wants for his birthday - he tells me and I go get it. It's verysimple and terribly noncreative or romantic - but it makes my man happy. And I am all about that. He also gets to pick any cake he wants out of my multitude of baking books. I am in the process of making a peanut butter chocolate torte for the man of the day. We are also looking forward to grilled steaks, rice, and corn tonight when he gets home from work.
Speaking of food, I founda super easy sliced baked potato recipe the other night whilst pinteresting (is that a word??) We tried it last night - amazing! Try it - it will change the way you make baked potatoes forever.
