Feliz Cumpleaños Amor

Amor had a birthday. And he had a wonderful day. I’m glad.

For dinner we went to this place that has his favorite food of all times: Barbecue. And for dessert to one of those old fashion ice cream parlors you rarely see anymore that even have the jukebox from the 1950’s. Think our eyes were bigger than our tummies? Not at all. It was SO good, we had to eat it ALL.

For the record: I’m supposed to be on a diet but hey you your husband only has a birthday once a year (HA!)

The waitress did this little presentation with the different types of sauces the restaurant offered. I thought it was kind of neat it turned out like a pig. 

There is something special about being surrounded by family


but there is something even more SPECIAL when, as a mom, I see my daughters LOVE their father


I made him an ALL ABOUT YOU basket –You can see that I actually make what I pin-

 And my creativity only extends so far. It took me several hours to come up with the sayings that would accompany each and everything in his basket. Even google couldn’t help. I made them up all on my own, so if you are curious about what they all say, just ask.

And who says you need helium balloons anymore? It’s all about gravity baby!


Maybe unrelated or maybe not: I can’t get enough of certain CUTENESS


Birthdays are the BEST!
