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.
