Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my Main Squeeze!
I am one lucky girl. I love him so.
In honor of his 29th year on the planet, Mother Nature gifted him with torrential thunderstorms all day. Still, we managed to sneak out of the house when I got home from work to hit up one of our local faves, Saloon, for fiesta hour appetizers and beverages. Yes, we brought out child, because who can afford to both go out and pay a sitter? Wait, don’t answer that…
Charlotte was enthralled by the massive longhorn bull, moose, deer, and elk heads adorning the walls, so spending an hour in a booth was no problem. Afterward, we stopped by the Petland in our neighborhood because I just had to show Chris how adorable it is when Charlotte talks about her favorite “pink dog” (that’s really white) and the “ree youd” bird (that would be the really loud, squawking parrot that actually terrifies her). Thankfully, the parrot was quiet this afternoon, and Charlotte was able to enjoy petting a bunny, oogling over an adorable yellow lab pup, and gazing at the colorful display of fish.
After our little afternoon fun, Chris dropped us off and went back to teach a lab, I nearly fell asleep in the chair while Charlotte was reading herself stories, and then Charlotte peed on the floor. Back to reality.
And now, we’re winding down Chris’s day with a couple episodes of Portlandia, because we’re just now realizing that that show is freaking hilarious.
