My Love's birthday was yesterday.
Let me just say, I LOVE ME SOME BIRTHDAYS!
I really love my own but I think other's are just as fun.
Especially my husband's.
John Lawrence Culpepper.
What a man.
He was the big 2-6..
[SIDENOTE: He says I am a cougar (since I am 2 1/2 years older). I think if I was 20 1/2 years older, that would be fitting. But I DO like cats so...the title 'cougar' is fine with me.]
Anyway- this was his day. I tried to make it as special as possible even though it was a normal work day for both of us.
We started with "brefkas" in bed.
(He dons my baby blanket that I still sleep with on a nightly basis for the purpose of you not being grossed out my his manly chest hairs- but that sentence probably grossed you out, no?)
Accompanied by birthday presents:
(which are still en route to us so he got envelopes with printed pictures.. lame)
This was a present to me too- DMB tickest for June.
(this was his favorite)
a sweet ride. He gave up the Trek and wants something for a more "mature man"- his words.
I made a Devil's Food Chocolate cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
After dinner of endless amounts of pasta and and sauces we brought out the cake!
applause for doing such a good job at
a.) blowing out the candles
b.) turning 10..? [I thought 26 candles would be overload and perhaps depressing??]
Friends, Kai and Seth, woobie and husband of Karis!
Rebecca holds a captive audience while telling hilar stories until after midnight.
(just kidding..the clock is wrong. Very wrong)
The cake was a hit!
Enjoying the after dinner conversation with good friends
No B-day is complete without a can of Flarp..
(not shown- a sweet bike bell and an Illinois 'John' license plate for his bike.)
So it was a good day for him. I am so glad he was born.
He's a gem.
