One Year Older

I've never cared much for Valentine's Day. Now I love that day, but only because it's Matt's birthday!

For Matt's 26th birthday I let him open one present in the morning--cocoa roasted almonds from Sam's Club. If you know Matt, you know he loves to eat. Half of his birthday present requests involved food from Sam's Club.

He spent the day at work, and then he brought home pizza for dinner! Valentine's Day is not the best night to go out for a birthday dinner...

The one thing Matt really needed for his birthday were work boots, which we bought that night, but the other random present I gave him was a package of these:

Kind of dorky, but he loves his iPhone, and we can use them in our new house.

For a birthday cake, he had requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, so that afternoon I whipped one up. I've made this recipe twice now. Good stuff.

There were maybe 10 candles on the cake, and it still took him 3 breaths to blow them all out. I guess being 26 means he's old or something :) Happy birthday, Matty!!

I think having a baby ages you by about 10 years, so huff and puff away, Matty!

My other thought: Sam's Club? Costco must be outlawed in that part of the world located so close to Arkansas. Do you miss it or will Sam's Club suffice? (This from someone who only has a Sam's Club membership even though Costco is much closer to my house...)
