birthday weekend

Saturday was Eric's birthday, last birthday in his twenties!! So of course we celebrated big by doing a whole lotta.... nothing! Eric's request, of course. It's funny how opposite we are. I would die of happiness if Eric planned a surprise party, actually, it wouldn't even have to be a surprise! Any party would make me so happy, or if Eric whisked me away for a quick little trip, etc. Eric feels the same way about having zero plans on his birthday, the icing on top would be if I didn't make him take a single picture, but we all know I failed with that birthday wish ;)
It really was a perfect day of sweet family time! When Mia woke up, we brought her in to our bed and all watched Despicable Me 2 together... we didn't roll out of bed until 9! We got our work outs in then Eric played "tea party" with Mia and indulged in all her other play time requests :) He's such a good daddy! During Mia's nap I ran a few errands and left Eric home to sit around and do nothing (of course he worked on little projects around the house, but at least none of those projects came from my to-do list! I tried my best to make sure he didn't have to do anything that day!) When Mia woke up we went to Oregano's for the first time because we've heard how popular it is here in the valley!  Probably my favorite request of the day was when Eric asked me not to bake a cake. He's really been hitting the gym hard and is holding back on the treats, so he didn't want a cake sitting around all week to tempt him (especially because I don't like his cake of choice). I can't even tell you how much I dislike baking, especially when I get nothing out of it in the end! Does it make me a bad wife to be so happy about not having to bake him a cake? Probably. But I'll own it, especially because I will totally make his cake (frosting is even from scratch!) anytime he asks for it, ha ha. Instead of birthday cake, we tried little bundlet cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes, our first time, and they did not disappoint! After putting Mia to bed we cuddled up in our bed with the little bundlet, a movie and called it a night! Most relaxing birthday ever, for the both of us :) Happy 29th, babe!

Happy Birthday to your amazing husband! Glad y'all had a wonderful time celebrating him and glad he got to do a whole lot of nothing. Baking when you don't get anything out of it isn't as fun as baking and enjoying right? I love nothing bundt cakes, they are sooooooo yummy!

So glad that you guys had a nice time celebrating by doing nothing haha. Sometimes a nice,low key weekend is just what's needed to feel rested and rejuvenated! :)

My fiance is the same way! I want to plan all these fun outings and pack his birthday full of stuff and he'd much rather sit around and do nothing! :) Makes it easy on us, I guess.

Happy birthday to your husband!! I love baking cakes because I will not bake for any other reason ha! So last year I put my foot down and told Adam that I was baking his birthday cake and please to tell him mom not to buy him one. I'm his wife! I should be in charge of birthdays from now on :)

Lauren said...

Happy belated birthday, Eric!

It really sounds like my type of birthday. I don't like to do anything big at all. My hubby had to beg me to let him take me out for supper on my birthday cuz I just wanted to pick something up & go home to do laundry (my birthday was on a Wednesday this year & that's laundry night - ha!).
