Happy Birthday!

Yesterday we celebrated my husband's birthday - 46 years! Wow!! (I must admit that scares me because now we're on the downslope to 50!! Eeks!!)

Anyways, aside from the age, he still looks like he's 35!!!
He's been working so hard these last few weeks and I wanted to treat him with a really nice meal. Most of our family is gone right now but my folks were still around so I invited them over for supper.
I spent all day getting ready, cleaning & running around doing errands and getting things for supper & his present. The kids were great too.

I had 2 large salmon filets and made 3 different kinds of salmon .... mediterranean flavored, one with dill & lemon sauce and another one (my favorite) was with Maple syrup! Yummy!! Had some Basil Orzo, corn on the cob and roasted veggies (green & yellow zucchini and orange & red peppers). I don't usually bar-b-que salmon (as that's my brother's specialty) so I was a wee bit nervous as to how it would all turn out. But I was pleasantly surprised and everything was devoured!!

Kids had fun giving Daddy all of his presents too. Just wish I'd taken some pictures!!

Love you hon and hope you had a great day!!

  1. Happy Birthday to Tim! Sounds like you all had a fantastic time, Cari. I spent Sat cooking, baking and cleaning (amid of course looking after the littlies) because I threw a surprise birthday party for my DH. His b'day was back in Feb and I said that we would have a bbq with all his friends. The weather has been worse than awful here and we have been going through a really hard time with his work so I put together a 'surprise' birthday party. It was the LAST thing he was expecting! I totally ROCKED it! LOL. Jeez, our men are SO lucky to have us, don't you agree? LOL!!
