Husband of the Year


The last time I had a birthday party with someone other than family was ten years ago. My roommate threw me a party and forgot to invite anyone (she was a really sweet person and I totally forgive her for it). This year I decided that it would be fun to have a little get-together with my friends since I'm celebrating another decade. I gave Mr. Fob a list of suggested invitees and left the rest of the planning up to him. Tonight was somewhat of a surprise, although we both felt that the night before my birthday would probably be a good time for a gathering. I left work a little before eight and headed home, but then I started to feel really lame when I got caught in traffic and realized that my friends were all going to be sitting around waiting for me to get there. Thankfully I managed to get home without excessive delay, and thankfully Mr. Fob was a fabulous host. He made cheese balls with crackers, chips and guacamole, and this beautiful ice cream cake. He also graciously retired to the other room while we talked like thirteen-year-olds about "girly stuff" (hey, at least we weren't talking about our kids, right?), and he even bought two candles instead of burning down the house with the right number. I'm so glad we had a party and at the same time I'm sad to be leaving behind all these fabulous friends when we move in a few months. I can't believe I'm having this much fun and it's not even officially my birthday yet!

I actually wanted to have a party on my thirtieth too, but we had just moved. So I'm glad you had lots of fun -- I'll count it for me as well.

I would have loved to have been there! Unfortunately (and fortunately because I love them) I have family in town, but I am glad to hear it was such a good time!! I did think it was really sweet to get an invite from FOB. Happy Birthday my dear... you have never been more Foxy!! I am going to miss you when you leave! :-(

mr. fob was amazing host!! tell him i'm still thinking about the cheese and that cake and those chips!!!
Mmmm, ice cream cake.
My 30th is coming up soon and am interested to see what the hubby does. He is acting like there is going to be a party but he did that last year too. But at least I'm making my own cake (white chocolate raspberry cheesecake) so no worries there. =)
