16 --------------> 24We didn't go out for his birthday or do anything too "special" for his birthday either but I am sure we will over the weekend. Instead, today I tried to make the day special while he was at work. I decorated our kitchen as if we were having a birthday party (I have no one else to celebrate for! ha, ha.)
On top of baking dinner during the day, I also took time out to make him a cake and used homemade frosting, etc. (Recipe found here).
I really do treat him so well and love him a lot. I try to let it be known by telling and showing through my actions so I really wanted him to know it on his birthday. Of course, there is ice cream to go with the cake with the option of chocolate or vanilla!
And then what do you do after cake and ice cream? PRESENTS!
He loved all of his gifts. He was surprised when I bought him one of his favorite growing up video games, Duke Nukem. Matt also received a new gaming headset that is 100x better than his old one. His old one is the standard cheap one that comes with the xbox. He has had that one for so long and it sometimes gives him issues when he's playing live during games. We hooked it up last night while he tried out his new video game and it is awesome! Makes me want to play just for that fact.
Aside from the gaming world, He got a bundle of rock climbing gear; which, including Evolv shoes, a harness, a bag to put his harness in (or whatever), Belay rappel, Carabiner, and Chalkbag! He cannot wait to get out there to use it! Who knows, maybe we will do that this weekend.
Hail to the
king Queen, baby!
