The Birthday Boy

Hi there!  It's me, your old friend.  I know it's been a while since I've shared anything on here.  Thankfully, life has been so good to us, and we've been busy enjoying it.

This month, in particular, we've been celebrating hubs' 30th birthday!  And, while I still feel a bit guilty about not throwing a huge birthday bash, I think we've been having a good time.  This year, hubs and I decided to celebrate each others' birthdays for the entire month.  

On hubster's actual birthday, we had a family dinner celebration.  Mike's sister, brother-in-law and niece over for homemade calzones, salad and cake {white chocolate raspberry cheesecake} from our favorite bakery.  It was fun to hang out with them and see Gracie-girl help Uncle Mike open his presents.

The next weekend we went with our friends, the Lam's, to Fosselman's for ice cream.  I had the chocolate covered strawberry, and hubs' had taro and coffee.  The taro was soooo good.

Last weekend, we went on a morning date to see The Amazing Spiderman and then for a quick lunch at Chick-fil-A.  We really miss Chick-fil-A so it was quite a treat go there- the closest one to our us is in downtown LA {a thirty minute drive without traffic}.  One of the local theaters offers half price tickets if you go to a show before noon {hence the morning date}.  It was a fun day and the movie was better than we expected {maybe it was because I'm such a big Emma Stone fan}

To round out the celebration, I took Mike to get a cupcake from Wonderland Cupcakes in Old Town Pasadena yesterday.  This guy is a two time winner of the Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. And, let me tell you, they are definitely delicioso.  

Last night, we had friends from our Life Group over for low country boil.  They had no idea what it was so it was fun to introduce them to a Southern specialty.  Then, we met some other friends to see The Dark Knight Rises.  {Are you seeing a pattern?  Apparently, we like food and movies.}  :)

Happy Birthday, Mike!  You are my favorite, favorite!  The love of my life and my best friend.  I hope that this year brings lots of new adventures.
