Gosh, where do I start? I had a great birthday yesterday!
B took out the pugs when we woke up (after SLEEPING IN!!!!!) and then we took our time showering and getting ready for the day. We haven’t had a day off together in ages. We had big plans to go to the car dealership or to move stuff out of storage (long stories) but instead decided to just spend the day together. We started with lunch at one of my favorite places, Mellow Mushroom!
I got my usual, pesto and bacon.
B was naturally more adventurous and got the Thai Dye.
Then we stopped by Holy Cow Cupcakes to get some of my favorites!
YEP!!! Blue velvet instead of red because of the Butler game last night. So delicious.
And that’s right, I said Maple Bacon.
Ohmygoodness, this was so delicious. A moist delicious cupcake, full of that maple sweetness, with the touch of salty crunch. Goodness gracious. That’s all I can say.
We went to dinner with friends at our favorite Mexican place and watched the Butler game. (If you didn’t know, Butler University is only a mile or two from our house!)
We went to the bar after dinner and the game were over. We stayed until the end of the UConn game, at which point we called it an early (ish) night. I’m recovering from a sinus infection (which has somehow become a lung-wrenching cough) and the smoke at the bar wasn’t helping. I had so much fun though!! It was the most amazing day I have spent with Big Daddy in a really long time.
Oh, and the gifts? My mom sent me an AMAZING perfume that both B and I loved. And B got me two things:
And a seriously GORGEOUS, amazing DIAMOND NECKLACE. No, I’m not kidding.
So yes. This was quite possibly the best birthday I’ve ever had. Sickness and all. I love my friends. I love my family. I LOVE my husband. I am so grateful and thankful. I got so many sweet notes from all of you and it made me sure that 26 would be the best year yet!
I just wish I had bought more cupcakes. They’re lonnnnng gone.
