Back when we all thought we were going to be spending the day hauling furniture around, I was bummed and told Southern Honey that the only thing I really wanted for my birthday was a cake. With chocolate.
When our plans changed, I told him that it didn’t really matter about the cake — that I had just wanted something vaguely birthday-like about the day, and cake was the only thing I thought we would have time for.
Last night he baked me a cake anyway. And this morning he got up early to put entirely too many candles on it (I’m fairly certain there were twenty-five) and lit them for me. The trick kind that relight themselves when you try to blow them out, of course. *grins*
Even better, he got me a Nintendo DS Lite and one of the Zelda games! He also got a Johnny Bravo game for himself, of course, but that just cracked me up. Best husband ever!
Anyway, I guess we’re going to go into town later to the big tattoo and custom motorcycle show. I’m on the fence about getting a tat myself, but only because I haven’t found a design that is important enough to me to have it permanently etched on my body. But today I can get a good look at some very reputable shops from three or four states and maybe find someone to deal with in the future.
Then we’re going to do a late lunch before Southern Honey has to go to work, and I’m going to go hang out at B&N, knitting and playing my DS. All in all, a most satisfying day planned.
