husby's birthday celebration adventure.

As you all know, this past weekend was husband's birthday. On Saturday we celebrated a day early with a Jonathan & Tiffany fun day!

WARNING: there are a lot of photos in this post.

I decorated the entire house with Happy Birthday messages all over.

In honor of husband turning 24, I blew up 24 balloons and placed them all over the place!
And Max loooooved the balloons {you can see just how much he loved the balloons here.}

I also made him 24 birthday cards!

Bright and early Saturday morning I surprised husby with a homemade breakfast of stuffed french toast with berries complete with orange juice and coffee.
I just love big breakfasts on Saturdays.

Apparently husband thought it was too early in the morning
to take pictures with a flash. "SO bright!" :)

For his birthday present I gave husby an outdoor fireplace!
Because men make fire {safely contained fires, that is.}

Me and the birthday guy! I lurrrv him.

For lunch we ate at Beef 'O' Brady's and got a free appetizer {my chicken quesadilla}
with the purchase of an entrée {husband's wing basket!} {I love restaurant deals and coupons!}

After lunch we went to our favorite place for a frozen treat...SMOOTHIE KING!
Mmmmm...nothing like a dessert that is good for you!

Because husby loves guitar and all things music, we went to a couple different
music stores for him to try out some new acoustics {if you can't tell already,
I like taking pictures of my husband. He's my favorite.}

Toys 'R' Us was our next stop. We were in search for a good action figure,
but were sadly disappointed with their lack of selection. But it was still fun browsing the aisles
of toys and being kids again.

Next up: THE MOVIES! We went to see "Taken", and it was SO good!
And there was this scary cardboard cutout {below}, but husband made it
not-so-scary and more funny so I wouldn't have nightmares. :)

After the movie, we went to Ruby Tuesdays {with a buy one entrée
get one free coupon} and got salad and yummy steaks....mmmmm...

To top the day off, we went home for some birthday cake!
I made an Oreo Fudge Ice Cream Cake!
And husband had sparkler candles. I have always wanted to
make a cake with sparkler candles on top. :) Although I have to admit
I thought I may possibly burn down our house...there were a lot of candles! :)

We had a very fun day together. I love my husband
and enjoyed getting to celebrate him all day long.
