Happy Birthday to my husband.
His name is Alex.
And he is the greatest Alex there ever was.
It's crazy how much I love that dude.
Marriage has taught me a lot about being selfless.
And even though I had a slight break down about it yesterday (we're good now,) I love serving my husband constantly.
There's no one in this world I'd rather do it for.
(Ok, confession: I still do not like laundry, especially now that it's double.)
I love birthdays, so I was so excited to celebrate his 24th!
I've been trying to be extra frugal this last month so I could get him some nice goodies.
We woke up this morning at the lovely hour of 8:15.
I usually have to get up at 5:45, so 8:15 was glorious!
Then while Alex was showering I put up the "Happy Birthday" sign and set out a 2 liter of Diet Dr. Pepper and a bag of Hot Cheetos on the couch to greet him when he sauntered on out.
Then we headed on over to this restaurant called "The Blue Plate Diner."
It was DELISH! Alex devoured his omelette.
Definitely going back there again someday!
We came on back home and he opened up his presents!
I found him the "Back to the Future" trilogy at Graywhale so it's slightly used, but works just great, was cheap, and he loved getting it! I was informed that's what we are watching tonight.
I also got him some things from Urban Outfitters. HOLLA 40% off discount! That portion of the present included: a Gibson Les Paul guitar shirt, a button up v-neck sweater, and some mittens. He wears his full on snowboarding gloves and he looks ridiculous since y'know...he's not in the snowy mountains snowboarding so obviously something had to be done. Thankfully they fit his big 'ole hands and he loved them. :)
Lastly, I gave him his homemade gift, which was a book full of people we know wishing him a happy birthday through a picture.
I had to be sneaky, which is hard in a small apartment, but I pulled it off.
He absolutely loved it! He just kept going through the pictures over and over again.
It really is a stellar book. I was so happy people put their personalities in it and had a fun time.
Sadly, he forgot to request work off for today so he had to leave me to go there for 3 hours. So unfortunately, the zoo got nixed off the birthday activities list since they close shortly after he gets off.
So we will head on over to "Color Me Mine" and have a grand time there.
Then dinner tonight is at California Pizza Kitchen; compliments of a gift card. yes.
Then we will go over to the U for a classical guitar performance; compliments of free admission. yes again.
When we head back home we have high hopes of making a killer fort in our living room, watching "Back to the Future" part 1 and eating whatever dessert we can find.
And finally, our birthday festivities will end with us in our cozy bed...because well...we can.
Welp, too bad. I'm married. :)
Happy Birthday, my cute birthday boy!
You're more than I could ever ask for.
Thank you for loving me, for rubbing my back whenever I ask, for making me bagel sandwiches, for letting me cry, for going to the temple with me, for attempting to fold laundry, for striving to become better, for dressing up with me, for going shopping with me, for praying with me, and most importantly, for being my best friend.
I love you more.
