Loyal's Birthday

My husband is not one for big celebrations. He's much more comfortable staying under the radar, if you know what I mean, and especially when his dreaded birthday rolls around. He seriously hates his birthday and hates getting older.  In the 6 years we've been together, he has NEVER once told my sister his actual age. It's always "25, I think" or "who's counting?"  So last night we had a very small, low key dinner, Mexican of course, and we had the best time!  It was one of those nights that you wake up the next morning a little sad that the nights over, minus the hangover (which I escaped, thanks to breast feeding). :)  Anyway, it was an awesome birthday. After several margaritas, we started telling embarrassing stories, laughed so hard we could hardly stand it and definitely made some more memories that we will laugh about next year. 

I always try to make his birthday special to hopefully make it a little less dreaded. A couple of weeks ago, Loyal told me that, much to my surprise, "all he's ever wanted for his birthday was a cookie cake and I've NEVER gotten him one."  Well, that was news to me. I mean, had I known it was so life or death, I would have certainly got one before now. Well last night his dreams came true.  After a few mishaps and close calls, I somehow pulled off the huge surprise and had one waiting for him at the restaurant. He was honestly blown away when the waitress brought it out. I wish I had a picture of his expression because it was priceless. 
Thanks to a few too many Rita's, everyone got pizza slice-sized pieces of cake, some upside down on the plate. :/ 

Happy Birthday to my husband, my baby daddy and my BFF. Without you, my life would be pretty boring babe. Here's to forever, a lot more birthdays and many more cookie cakes! (He's still talking about the cookie cake by the way.)
