Yesterday was Philip’s twenty-ninth birthday. Although he’s minorly freaking out about next year’s big 3-0, he was totally fine with twenty nine, and happily celebrated being a year older. Unfortunately he had to go to work, but he did get to sleep in a bit, and come home early…so it wasn’t all bad.
We celebrated with his favorite dinner (which, sadly for him, he only gets once a year since it’s not my favorite), and his favorite dessert (with peanut butter M&M’s instead of regular).   
Along with dinner, we opened a few presents. With The New iPad and 1200 count Egyptian cotton sheets for our bed, I scored big points — he was a happy camper.
Can you guess who chose the wrapping paper?? Peanut said, “I think Daddy will REALLY like this one.” I had to oblige.
Here’s to one more year before this old man is officially over the hill πŸ™‚


  1. I forget that Philip is mine and Dave's age. You married an OLD man!! πŸ™‚ Happy Birthday Philip! We should all go on a trip next summer to celebrate the big 30! But of course, Sorry Merrick, you will have to stay at home πŸ˜‰

    We just made those cookies last week (I've made them with PB M&Ms and somehow don't like them quite as much).

    What dinner is it that Philip loves and you don't?

    Happy birthday!

    Happy birthday! The big 3-0 is easy – I just did it on Easter. My hubby's birthday is on Friday, he'll be 51!! But he looks 30, so it's just lovely. =)

    Great gifts, btw. I'm terrible at gifts – I have to ask hubbys what he wants. This year, a self-darkening welding helmet. Because that's hot….

  4. Happy 3-0! I'm also feeling that same way about turning 30. In June, I'll be 29 and so scary to think it will be my last year saying "I'm in my 20's!" Grrrr! πŸ™‚

  6. Happy birthday to Philip! Sounds like he had a great birthday with all the wonderful food and amazing presents. My hubby did not love his 30th birthday but he's over it now that he's 31, ha.

    Aw, happy birthday to hubby! I sort of dropped the ball when it came to my hubster's last bday; it was our first "married" birthday AND his 25th, so I wanted to make it special, but it fell the weekend after our honeymoon was over so I kind of forgot about it…. Whoops. Next year!

    Aw you guys are to cute!!! I love this outfit by the way!

  9. Happy birthday to him! He looks so cute when he got the iPad, haha. I also saved the M&M cookie recipe! thanks for sharing that ^^ x

    You are such a great wife! This sounds like a fun-packed birthday! I didn't even know they MADE 1200 count sheets but they sound heavenly!
