My Birthday Boy
Last Thursday, May 14, Nathan turned 27! He's as old as me now!! A fact that he does not like and frequently reminds me that I'll always be older than him, even if it is only by 9 months! Ha!
We had a very low-key celebration since it was a Thursday and Nathan had school that afternoon in Ruston. I cooked supper and a chocolate Butterfinger cake and we had our good friends P & K over to eat with us.
Before we ate, Nathan opened his cards from family and his gift from me. He's intently reading some sweet sentiments...
Nathan requested to eat his dinner on the "Red Plate." It was a wedding gift from some friends of Nathan's dad. It came with a marker to write each special occasion on the back. I think a birthday qualifies as a special occasion, don't you?
After dinner, I pulled the cake out of the fridge... It's iced with Cool Whip and has crushed Butterfinger bars on top and between the layers. Not to mention the Sweetened Condensed milk and caramel ice cream topping that's mixed together and poured all over it. Yum!
I had bought some fun, crazy candles for my sweetie. We put on all 27 and lit 'em up!!! It was so pretty, but the candles melted so fast! We had to hurry BIG TIME!
Nathan turned 27 in a blaze of glory!! At least on the cake anyway! Happy Birthday, Babe! I love you!
