Birthday Boy

This little stud is celebrating the big 2-8 today! Woot woot!

What an amazing guy he is and I just can't get enough of him!

He works so hard for our little family and sometimes he amazes me how he can just keep on going. He is so busy but always manages to find time for me even if it is me rambling on to him at midnight while we are both drifting to sleep.
I love you so much Brad and I am so glad that I have you!
Happy Birthday!

There hasn't been much to blog about lately, life is pretty usual, so I thought I would give a little update of what we have been up to during this first month of summer:

There's been a little of this:
Got this book for my birhday and finally have the time to read it. I love all of her books and I am especially enjoying this one!

A lot of this:
Brad and I love this series- we are nerds and we read together every night and we just finished the latest book in this series. If you liked Harry Potter you will love these- I promise!

Probably too much of this:

Brad got me a milkshake machine for my birthday and since then we have had lots of fun trying new flavors. This nights concoction- vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and heath toffee bits- YUM! (just in case you are wondering- two straws is the only way to go with a milkshake!)

Some of these:

Cookies and cream cupcakes-I made these babies for a family party last week and they were a huge hit! I posted the recipe for them here if you would like to give them a try.

A little of these:

I potted these a few weeks ago and I am so proud that they are still alive- I wish I knew what kind of flowers they were but I threw the little thing away that said. I cannot wait until we have a house with a real yard so I can do more than just a pot.

And I invested in one of these:

I know- I'm a big spender! Really this thing has motivated me so much- It nice to know how far I am actually going on my runs and it is easier to push myself now- which is good due to all the treats that we like to eat lately.

Well- I hope everyone else is enjoying this beautiful rainy June!
