Fun was had by all! The proof is in the bounce!
Grandma gave AJ all the scrabble snack sized cheez-its and a family friend gave us leftover snack packs of doritos so we even had fun snacks for the kiddos without having to break the shopping rule!
Fast forward exactly a month from AJ's party and you will find me totally spoiling my husband on his birthday, July 7th. We threw him a surprise party; A party that got off to a rocky start, but which ended up being... totally AWESOME baby! He then spent a lazy day recovering from his surprise party after eating his favorite breakfast, Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce, which I cooked to perfection for the first time ever despite its high degree of difficulty (like an 13 or 14 on a scale of 1-10) and despite my nearly fifty prior failed attempts. And we had his family over for dinner on his actual birthday too for shrimp carbonara which is excellent! I am exhausted just remembering all of this stuff. My husband is such a lucky man.
For the record, I did actually wrap these up in a big fancy gift bag that I bought at the Goodwill for fifty cents...and I tied it with pretty ribbon (not that a man cares about such trivial things), but still I wanted you to know. In case you care and so that the gift seems slightly less lame.
