Today, is a very, very special day, my friends. Today is the 28th birthday of Babyface!
I am so insanely lucky to have this guy in my life. He makes me coffee in the morning. He does my laundry. He cleans up after my kitchen bombs. He tells me loves me every day. He even lets me call him “Babyface” on the internet without batting an eyelash. He’s just…a good guy. And I feel like there just aren’t very many of those left anymore. I’m so proud to be his wife.
It’s an extra special birthday this year because, as you know, his whole family is here to help us celebrate! I don’t know how it is in your house, but in ours, when it’s your birthday, you get complete control over the menu. Babyface’s first birthday-related food request actually started yesterday. Last night, we all headed out to New Albanian Brewery to get some of the best pizza and beer in the area. Man, I love that place.
As far as the actual birthday fare, I didn’t even have to ask, I knew exactly what Babyface was going to request for dinner tonight. Craig loves the vast majority of the food on this blog, but there are three recipes that are absolutely his favorite—pepperoni pizza mac and cheese, maple bacon burgers, and butterfinger cheesecake. He mentions that pepperoni pizza mac and cheese no less than once a week.
Not really the most balanced of meals, but hey, you only have a birthday once-a-year! It’s totally worth it to celebrate my amazing husband. I think birthdays are meant for indulging.
I’m off to go spend some time with the birthday boy! I’ll be back tomorrow with a crazy addictive recipe for roasted nuts. We’ve been munching on them all week long. Yum!
