Yesterday we celebrated a birthday. Whos birthday you ask, well, mine! I am not ashamed to say my 45th. I always shake my head when people say my 29th x 6. I see each year as a blessing and I am fine with celebrating it. Sure the celebration looks different as we age, but life is certainly something to celebrate.
It was a very low key event. It snowed in the morning and was extremely windy.
Chuck took Megan off to school and then returned home as he took a vacation day to spend with me. He returned home with a treat of Chick-fil-A sweet tea.
I certainly didn't expect this since the roads were not in the best shape. Surprises, even small, are nice!
Chuck baked a cake (using a mix from the pantry) and then said he would need to go to the store for frosting. Since our budget is tight (and I went over on my grocery budget this week!) I said I would take care of it.
It is the first time I had made any kind other then white buttercream. It was fun! Not exactly a keeper as it was more of a chocolate fudge and we prefer milk chocolate. If you don't get in the kitchen and try then you will never know what you are capable of doing!
For dinner steaks were grilled, I baked some potatoes and threw together a salad.
Then it was present time!
I had given Chuck the Kohl's cash I earned with some purchases from Christmas along with money earned from my reward card. The only cash spent was for the food grade bucket and the candy that Megan insisted he buy. I am happy with everything especially the bucket.
He even got the great sealing, easy open gamma lid for it. He knows me so well! (FYI: our local Lowes carries these buckets and you can also get them from Amazon.)
According to one little girl no birthday is complete with out cake. :)
Another birthday is on the books. Life is good and I am looking forward to all the blessing the Lord has in store for my 45th year!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
