Because sometime you leave the gym and get stuck in traffic because hundreds of Santas are running down the street.
The week started off with Sophia's unicorn themed birthday party. I made the cake which was devoted because chocolate chococate chocolate covered in chocolate is a very desirable cake. Sure it was great to celebrate So and all, but the greatest part about her party was the inspiration. Shannon and I have decided that we are gong to make a magical life guide / nose to tale cookbook of unicorns. Life advice of how to live with and eat a mythical creature. And of course sell it at Urban Outfitters because were else to you sell shit like that . HA ha.
After that party things were pretty basic. Some work here and there, more paperwork, talking to accountants, health insurance bullshit. (BULLSHIT!!!!) The end of the year is creeping up fast and I am trying not to think to hard about it and get overwhelmed. There are more important things like cookies and present making that I need to focus on first. The littles came over for dinner as usual, which is now becoming more of a challenge because every time they come over they no longer like a food that they actually really like. I think they are just trying to drive me crazy but we still all like black beans and green beans so if that is what we eat foe every dinner, then so be it. Then there was the windy night where the mr's soccer ball was swept away. He has been walking around the neighborhood(we both have) searching for it, looking under cars, in bushes, asking neighbors, posting on front porch forum. There is suspicion that a kid down the street stole it, ( the mr thinks the kid is jealous of his skills) but we have no proof. I decided that I will wait for a few more day and then it's time, we just need to get a new soccer ball. Little Judah was nice enough to bring over his ball for them to kick around for the day but the mr needs one right outside the front door at all times. See he had pretty much perfected the rainbow trick and was on his way to being a soccer star, but now the ball is gone. And he is sad and losing his new soccer trick skills by the day so we need to get the guy a new ball fast. It has been a high drama week without it.
Friday night we had a little birthday party for the mr. It was a grilled cheese and soup with chocolate chip cookie and strawberry ice cream sandwich party which turned out to be fantastic. I am really starting appreciate simple, easy food to serve people that require little prep time and no oven. People came, people ate, people were mostly happy, and the mr had fun and got new sock. And that was just the kick off of his birthday weekend. Yesterday we went for a drive to where we used to live long ago, went for a little hike. Had some lunch,got some coffee, and just took it easy for the day.
Now today is his actual birthday. No plans yet other then an a really good americano and the traditional lasagna birthday dinner. It's his birthday so we will do as he wishes.
Happy Birthday my love!!!🎂🎈🎉
