Happy Sunday, guys!! Hope you all had a great weekend! My weekend was spent celebrating J’s birthday.
His actual birthday was Friday so we kicked off the weekend with a home cooked meal of pulled chicken sandwiches and sweet potato fries. C tried to convince J to request meatball subs (his favorite!), but J stuck to his guns. Hehe.
J’s only real request for his birthday was that we go to Malley’s for ice cream. Yes, I’m married to a 12 year old. Even when it’s just the 2 of us on a “date night” J suggests Malley’s. I’m pretty sure it’s his favorite place on the planet. And, yes, they do have a pretty kick azz chocolate quartet ice cream, but this ice cream also likes to stick to my azz. Not the best place for me to go very often. But birthdays are a special occasion.
Before we could go to J’s favorite place, there were presents to open!
And my mom even brought cake!
She somehow convinced me that J couldn’t have a birthday with only ice cream. And normally I would agree. But not when your ice cream sundae looks like this:
Do any of you remember this sundae? This is the sundae that my sis and J had their ice cream throwdown with.
So even with having a little piece of cake first, it doesn’t look like J had any problem puttin this thing down:
I think he’s trying to prove to Mandy that he’s still got it.
Perhaps there’s another throwdown to be had???
And if things weren’t sweet enough this weekend, this morning after our run with Team Challenge I made J some birthday pancakes.
HOLY COW. Ummmmm……..have you tried these??? Jessica is a genius.
These have now become the official birthday breakfast in our house. Without a doubt.
So, despite still feeling under the weather (I can’t seem to kick this thing!), it was great to spend the weekend celebrating J’s birthday. It makes me happy making him happy.
What about you? Are birthdays a big deal or just another day? Birthdays were a HUGE deal in our house when I was growing up so I still make a big deal out of them today. Plus, now I love any excuse to have birthday pancakes………
