The Grand Ol’ Man, He Ain’t What He Used To Be

Posted on

Yesterday was hubs’ 34th birthday! Hello mid 30’S! It was also his last day of leave, and we were able to spend the entire day together. This is essential, since this was the first birthday of his, since we met, that he has been on land for! I’ve always had to plan some elaborate thing to compensate for him missing his birthday. This year, I was lucky enough to plan some elaborate things to compensate for it being the first we got to celebrate together! Of course we’ve been celebrating all weekend- but yesterday was a good day.

We hung a “Happy Birthday” banner, we wore children’s party hats, and I even got those things you blow- that when I was a kid made noise… ours did not.

We wanted to go see a movie and like idiots we just drove to the theater to catch the 10 am. Epic Fail… all they had playing was that frickin’ Harry Potter.  We then ate lunch at a cute little hole in the wall Mexican place here in Fallbrook. Needless to say, it was delicious! We are definitely going to enjoy the next three years here! The freshest, most delicious guacamole I’ve ever had, and I don’t even like guac!

We hung out at home before going to our favorite local restaurant: Brother’s Bistro. It’s the kind of place where you can get a little fancy or dress in shorts and a t-shirt. They have a little patio and we were seated right next to a little gold-fish pond! It was a romantic evening and so wonderful to enjoy with my love.

Then… CAKE!

Yep, you get me. Hubs held it a little close to his face and looks slightly demonic! He picked out red velvet. Well, if that’s what you want, that’s what you’ll have- IT’S YOUR DAY! I had number candles and had him make a wish 😀

Even Fiona got in on the celebrations:

Crazy Pom!

 It was one of those days you want to keep in your pocket forever. It was great to be able to finally celebrate on the 18th with my love.
