Birthday's are my absolute favorite holiday!
It all started with the traditional breakfast in bed...
Dave is impossible to wake up on Sunday mornings
So I knew I could surprise him.
Except for he all of sudden woke up and came into the kitchen.
First time ever that he was awake before 8:15 am on a Sunday!
After church we went on a fun little bike ride around campus.
Sounds silly but I haven't really ridden around campus to see everything yet.
I definitely got another photo with the gator...
The University of Florida campus is so pretty.
Palm trees everywhere and all the buildings are red brick which makes it feel more unified I think.
We went out last night to Carrabbas for Dave' real birthday dinner
But I decided to make him something special for his actual birthday.
Salmon. homemade bread. Garlic mashed potatoes and green beans.
It was all fabulous until the Salmon didn't cook right and we had to throw it away.
Yes it was raw and cold in the middle when Dave took his first bite.
I made the traditional ice cream cake again this year.
It was delicious, yes I had two pieces to prove it.
Recipe to come later this week :)
We had a little get together with some of Dave's friends from school.
The candles on the cake were trick candles.
Love those. Made me feel like a kid again.
Overall, I think he had a pretty fabulous birthday.
He even lied to me and said dinner turned out 'great'
He is the best.
Have you ever had a birthday fail??
What is your go to birthday cake??
