The Big 4-0!

Today we celebrated my husband.  His birthday is on Tuesday but he will be out of town, so we partied today instead. 

We gave him his presents this morning...a shirt, a gift card, and a game system that plays old Nintendo and Super Nintendo games.

This evening we ate his favorite meal of chicken and noodles.  It didn't taste just like his mom's but it was pretty good, even if I do say so myself.

Tonight we ate cake and ice cream.  It was white cake with peanut butter frosting...made with Wow Butter (soy butter) because of his nut allergy.  But it was really tasty!  We found a new frosting recipe for sure!

Overall, it was a nice day.  But...

He will be 40 on Tuesday and we won't be there to celebrate with him and that kills me a little.  It's a big deal birthday!  I guess I better come up with a plan for celebrating him by phone on Tuesday instead. 


  1. Happy almost birthday to your husband!! I'm sure her enjoyed today's celebration and maybe you could send him something for while he's out of town!

  2. You should sneak something in his suitcase/bag to let him know Happy Birthday from you! He will love finding something on that special day. Even a nice note hidden that he will only find when you tell him where to look!

  3. Happy Birthday to your husband. Sounds like you have already given him a good birthday.

  4. I was thinking of the "sneaking of Birthday love in the suitcase" idea, too. You're a slicer, so you know how much writing matters... love notes are the best!!!

  5. Wow the big 4-0 that is a big deal! Definitely should surprise him somehow. I like the retro gift --- super ninetendo. :)
