So, about a month before Brian's birthday, I'm sure I asked him to start thinking about what he might want to do on his special day . . . Whether he might want to go out with a group or would want a quiet night with just us. . . if he would want to get out of town or just stay around home. And I'm pretty sure he responded every time with something like,
"I don't know, I don't think I want to do anything this year."
I asked the same thing a couple of weeks before his birthday and then again the week of his birthday, and he definitely gave me the same answer every time. Men.
So of course, while he was busy NOT helping me make plans for his birthday, I had to take matters into my own hands.
Luckily, this group was flexible!
Monday night, we met up at Raccoon Lodge, (great service, good food!) and Brian thought we were just meeting his parents and brother out for dinner.
We surprised him!
I spent the day whipping up this yummy chocolate cake, complete with chocolate covered strawberries and even some cupcakes for those who might not go for the chocolate-y chocolate-ness.
Somehow the good picture of the cake disappeared off my camera, but you get the idea.
It was pretty delicious!
Tabor and Maizie even helped us celebrate!
Happy Birthday Babe!
