Kent celebrated the big 3-2 yesterday. and I LOVE birthdays. Even if they aren't mine. It still means a party. presents. dinner out. and ice cream cake. And when it's Kent's birthday- all those things are mine, too.
I was asking my sis- Laney- for ideas on what to get him for his birthday. She always get her husband shoes and ties and socks for his birthday because he loves clothes. So- she asked what Kent loves. The answer is food. He loves to eat. It was a food themed birthday.
He worked the day- so we went over the the base and decorated his car. We filled it with balloons, kit-kats, and his favorite donuts.
Kent always wants an ice cream cake for his birthday. And I always tell him they cost too much money. Because they DO! holy smokes. I checked coldstone- but I wasn't about to shell out 40 bucks for a cake. So I downgraded to Dairy Queen for the Oreo blizzard cake. And I used a coupon. And it counted as one of his presents. It was tasty- but not as tasty as it should have been for costing as much as it did. But it was worth it when Kent saw- that despite my cheapness- I bought him an ice cream cake. He was pretty happy.
He got a few other gadgets- and then we went out for a crazy dinner (kidless) to Saya. His favorite Japanese/Korean Sushi house. And he got to order whatever he wanted. Yakisoba, Bolsot Bibimbap, Salmon sushi, and potstickers. It was a pretty delicious dinner. And possibly something we need to get used to- since Korea and Japan are pretty high on our list of places to move next year! any thoughts on either of the two? I never thought I might live in Asia- and now it seems like such a possibilty!!
I'm getting more adventurous and enjoyed this sushi :)
After dinner we went home and enjoyed ice cream cake and Project Runway. It was such a great birthday. Kent told me he's lucky he married me. I told him he was right. He is pretty lucky. But- I have to say- I'm pretty lucky myself. I hope we have many many many more October 10ths to celebrate together!
He's kind, dependable, hard working, dedicated, adventurous, humble, and just plain fun.
Love you, Ralph. Happy Birthday.
