Yesterday was my husband's birthday. Birthdays around here aren't celebrated in a very elaborate way, but they are still a big deal.
When I was a single mom, my kids woke up to birthday cake for breakfast on their birthdays.
For Nick's birthday, I made a real breakfast. He requested eggs, ham, toast and hashbrowns. He's a breakfast kind of dude! After breakfast, we gave him his gifts. There was a common theme this year.
He has been asking for this gadget for a while now. I had convinced him we had no room for it (which is true) so he thought he wasn't getting it for now. I'm not sure what you call it, but it holds a little pony keg of beer and keeps it cold. Nothing like cold beer on tap!
This is a bottle opener shaped like the Starship Enterprise. He really liked both of his gifts. He said we've made drinking beer a little easier.
He loves the commercial for Baskin Robbins ice cream cake (which is annoying to me) and he is constantly singing the song. Sooo... it only made sense...
He's been singing the annoying song for two days now.
My favorite moment was this one:
This is the kid sitting with her dad to map out her next semester of college. It does my heart good to see this kid lean on him and count on him for so much. He's a wonderful man and has stepped in to be a fantastic father to my kids. I'm a blessed woman.
I just realized he has on three different shirts in these photos. No wonder I have so much laundry.
I am an Army wife and mother of five. I have been married to my Soldier for over ten years and we are currently in our fifth duty station since getting married.
I started later in life with my duties as an Army wife but have tried to make up for it by soaking up as much information as I can. I had some wonderful mentors as I joined this journey and now I want to pay it forward and mentor others.
I started this blog to document my life as an Army wife, mother, volunteer, and one who is trying to make this blended family a great one.
I love to cook, bake, and be a complete internet geek. I'm learning as I go, but as I tell everyone, knowledge is power, so I keep digging for more information!
