birthday recap

I work out of town on Wednesday's so we celebrated Eric's birthday on Tuesday! I had a bunch of fun ideas we could do, but Eric told me he basically wanted to sit around and relax. I guess when you work as hard as he does, there's nothing better than a lazy day! We did go shooting and it felt so good to enjoy the warm sun together!

We forgot target stands so we had to get creative :)
I hit the freakin' bulls eye... woo hoo!
Cafe Rio for dinner. Yum!

I was able to schedule later appointments on Wednesday so that I could spend the morning with my birthday boy! He opened gifts, then enjoyed german chocolate cake, ice cream and bacon for breakfast :)
Side note: I hate baking! The only joy I find from baking is eating the goods.... but I don't like german chocolate cake. Luckily, this wifey is a good one! I make the frosting from scratch (messed up the first batch so I had to make a second. Happens every. year. AH!) and Eric gets to eat the whole cake himself :)

This is a bright yellow, neon swim suit! I wish you could tell just how blindingly neon this is.... but none of the pictures do it justice :)
Proof that I'm a goo wifey ;)
I don't know why my face is a different color than my neck. I promise my make up isn't that horrible!

Happy Birthday again Eric :) I hope it was your best one, yet! LOVE you!
