Celebrate We Did

24 Apr


Sunday was Eric’s birthday and we spent it hanging out and relaxing. It was quite nice! Once we woke up I made some sprinkle waffles for the birthday boy.

Then it was present time! I went for the materialistic route since Eric would still be wearing the same things from high school if no one else bought him clothes.



Parker, however, decided to beat me at gift giving by going the meaningful/thoughtful route. Although he did enlist my help since he’s not allowed to use sharp objects yet.



When we moved into our house a few years ago Eric had a trash bag full of tshirts from high school that he mentioned he would like to turn into a quilt someday. So I kept that thought in the back of my head and finally decided it was time to give it a whirl. I have never made a quilt before and loosely followed these instructions. It honestly wasn’t that difficult, just way more time consuming than I thought it would be…..especially since I didn’t start until the week of his birthday – whoops! The back is lined with brown fleece and there is also low loft batting in the middle. That blanket is very warm! Someone else decided they also liked it!


It also found use that afternoon as the perfect way to nap while I baked Eric’s birthday cake!


We had plans to eat dinner at Eric’s parents and I was in charge of dessert and so I made this Chocolate Wasted Cake recipe that I found via pinterest. It was fun to make and seriously SO GOOD! Thankfully there were leftovers that I may have eaten for lunch today.


More present opening at his parents that night! Beer, blankets and boat shoes. What more could a guy ask for?


Happy Birthday babe! Hope your day was everything you could have hoped and that your birthday wishes come true. Love you!
