Today is Tom's 29th birthday! We decided to celebrate last night and go out to eat. We had originally planned to go to Texas Roadhouse, but when we got there, at 5:30, it was already an HOUR wait! So, we went to Applebee's instead. We always get the spinach artichoke dip... it's so good! So, we had great food and the kids were all really well behaved to top it off. Tom requested I make German Chocolate Cake for his birthday dessert. We decided we didn't want to make an entire cake that we would have to eat ourselves, so after contemplating for awhile, we came up with German Chocolate Cookies. It was basically a Devil's Food Cake mix, made into cookies. And then German chocolate frosting sandwiched between two cookies. It worked out great and now we don't have an entire cake to polish off.
Every year, Tom informs me (in a teasing manner) that it is his "birthday weekend" so he gets to do whatever he wants and GETS whatever he wants. So, if the kids have a messy diaper.... "It's my birthday weekend." Or if I ask him to do some kind of chore, "It's my birthday weekend." Then, eventually it turns into...."It's my birthday WEEK, I get to do whatever I want" and THEN... "It's my birthday MONTH!" hahaha It's always funny because we both end up saying this every year around our birthdays! It's kind of a tradition now. I can't wait until my birthday month!
Happy Birthday Tom, we love you!
