Morning #9490: Thumbs Up.

This morning, the day that marks the 26th year the Lord has chosen to keep me here on Earth, I noticed that my husband woke up EXTREMELY early... and then I proceeded to go back to sleep :) I figured he just went in to work early since he went in a little late yesterday. no biggie.
THEN... just about 2 minutes before my alarm was to go off, i hear the door to the bedroom open, smell a delicious scent that can awaken even the grumpiest NON-morning person, and heard my sweet, handsome (i LOVE the way he looks in his work clothes - even if he hates wearing them! MUY CALIENTE! lol) husband singing "Happy Birthday" to me! When my eyes adjusted to reality, I notice he has gone to Starbucks to get me the travel mug that I've wanted so badly! Well... that was his intention... he actually came back with a different one* because they were sold out of the one i really wanted** (of all days, right?!)! :)

*Exibit A: totally just realized that it is not, in fact, a travel mug. it is just a coffee mug. non-travel type :) i thought that I was just not able to locate the lid that Aaron had (for some reason) not left on the mug... hahaha - now it all makes sense... :)
**Exhibit B: i can't find a picture of it ANYWHERE! even on the starbucks website!! what the heck?! anyways... it's a stainless travel mug that looks like it has hail damage. ;) there are little dents all over the mug that sort of look like polkadot dents...
Anyhow, this post has two purposes: to share another sweet story about my husband, AND to let you all know that you are invited to attend a "Grill and Chill" at our house on Friday evening to celebrate said birthday (yet ANOTHER thing my sweet husband has organized all on his own!). It will be BYOMeat, and bring your favorite beverage and a side to share. These truly are the best kinds of food parties, in my opinion! And it doesn't hurt that our friends are pretty much some of the best cooks in all the land... :)
If you plan to attend, please let one of us know so that we know how many bodies to expect!
Have a Fantastic "hump" day! The week is coming to a close already!


p.s. visit Calloway's Gardening Club page to see the blog's shout out :) that's pretty cool :) I guess I'm going to have to get on the ball with taking more pictures of the plants! That's one way to kick-start me! :) Check back later this week for garden updates. I promise I'll post some new pictures! There's definitely a lot happening on that front.

p.p.s. I TOTALLY wish that I would have time to make THESE little puppies for our Friday shindig. MAN! now THAT is way better than a birthday "cake" :) That's what I'm talking about. i LOVE IT! :)

Love your blog- saw it linked from a Calloways email I received. We are so much alike- my blog is only about food, but I also love "attempting" to garden too! Keep up the good work!
