Awesomness

I married the coolest man ever. Oh, you want proof, (you don't? Too bad) well...Besides all those things you can't see like the way he looks at me, the way he touches my hair, the tone in his voice when he says he loves me, how he is the only person who I know will be there for me no matter what through anything...

I think it takes utter awesomness, (don't care if it's not a word) to get your wife one of these for her birthday:

Seriously, I have been asking for one of these since I was five!!!
And a pair of these:

My dream shoes...Because some of us have poor balance
And of course, every deviant woman with a sword needs to be kept in line...

How delicious is that...
 I'm feeling more inspired already...

I did make one of the coconut cake recipes I was sent--with a lime curd filling and German chocolate cake icing. In all it has five stick of butter...But we won't tell grandma lest she have a heart attack as soon as she sets eyes on it.
I'll be sure to share how it turns out and post the link like I promised--haven't tried it yet, but anything with that much butter and coconut has to be good right?

  1. Is today your birthday? It's my husbands too. Did I know you both shared this day? Maybe I did. In any case - many, many happy returns.

    The sword is beautiful, brave of you to have it in a house with two boys, but it is gorgeous. And the hook - well, I think you will love it in that oh so special way....

    Peace and joy this year!

    1. gg,
      yes and yes. Happy birthday to Him! I hope you all had a lovely day.

      And yes well, while the kids and I do have differing opinions about what constitutes acceptable items to play with, (they think it's unreasonable that I refuse to allow them to fight with ski poles) they, much like Alpha and myself, have spent their lives in proximity to enough dangerous objects that they well know what "thou shalt not EVER touch on pain of death". Plus, I'm thinking it will be placed nicely above the bed somewhere...

      The hook...Okay, so I asked for it...But I must say, the one I asked for did Not have the ball on the end. It makes me a tad nervous...

      Thank you! Failing peace, I'll hang onto the joy lol.

      thank you!
      Like I told gg, I'm a bit concerned about the ball on the end lol. But it is an object that feeds several of my fascinations at once...

    1. tor,
      thank you.
      I'm thinking it might be one of those objects where, when I open the box, I'll have an immediate change of heart from "I want that" to "oh good god, I do Not want that!" lol.

    1. sunnygirl,
      we only managed to consume about 1/4 of the cake. It's pretty intense lol, so there's plenty to go around.

      Thank you.

      that's it! You invent the ability to send cake over the internet, and I will make my fortune on it!

      Thank you, I did enjoy it very much.

    1. lm,
      You should have seen the look on my mom's face when I told her Alpha got me a sword--it has deeply shaken her faith in his judgement lol.
      Thank you for the belated happy birthday, (always nice to make the fun days last).

      The cake was good, though I think that perhaps I should have adjusted it a bit for the altitude...
