Ben’s Special Day

I made Ben birthday pancakes for breakfast. Putting sprinkles on anything makes it 100x more fun!IMG_7472 (800x533)

After I made him breakfast I ran the mile to the gym and did some strength work. I walked back and a crossing guard insisted on helping me cross the street and telling me to “look both ways!”. Ha! I felt like a dork Smile

The run, gym, walk takes too long and I need to start eating before I go. By the time I was eating breakfast I had been up over 2.5 hours and am overly hungry. image

Sadly, I am not giving Ben what he said he wanted for his birthday (hint – it’s bigger than a bread box and has to be squeezed outta my…)IMG_7238 (800x600)IMG_7250 (800x600)

But, I’m planning a nice evening and making a coconut cake per his request (cake > babies, no?).

I bought us tickets to go Whale Watching and wanted to go tonight but I didn’t realize until too late that he would have had to get off work early. So, we’re doing that next week and tonight we’re going out to dinner.

Last year I took donuts to his work as a b-day surprise, but since he’s at a newish job I don’t think he wants to be embarrassed just yet.

Fun Friday Fideos!

In my dream life I am a travel blogger and get to see the world and vlog about it. Look at this amazing plane that goes from Bangkok to Hong Kong. I die…

Is it Casual Friday at your work?

Question: What are your weekend plans?

    “Last year I took donuts to his work as a b-day surprise, but since he’s at a newish job I don’t think he wants to be embarrassed just yet.” Oh um, so I shouldn’t have had my hubby fake arrested at his 2 week old job when he was 21? Oops!! :-)

    NO plans this weekend thank goodness! Starting next weekend we’re booked every weekend through the end of the year so I’m gonna enjoy it!

    On hubs 40th I had 40 balloons delivered in a bouquet to his work…he and the women in his office LOVED it. He’s 47 now….Hmmmm, I will have to start thinking about what to do for his 50th!

    Happy Birthday Will…I mean Ben!!

    Happy Birthday to your hubz. And is it casual Friday? I dunno. I just showed up to a meeting in my sweaty spandex after running 4 miles, walking 1.5 and then taking a HIIT & strength training class at the gym. I guess that’s pretty casual eh?

    You should offer him the next best thing … practicing for baby making. I did that for 3 years with Hubs and it worked like a charm. Its still the same amount of fun!!
    Working on the house and doing my long run this weekend. Probably a Nertz championship somewhere in there if we can manage.

    It took me a long time to want a baby as well. :) And then one day I woke up and just wanted one so much, lucky for my husband 😀 Now I have a beautiful 6 week old son.

    If it isn’t too personal to ask, do you ever want kids?

    • says

      Congrats on your son!!! Yes, I want kids I just have so much going on right now I know I would have to scale back and I don’t want to just yet.
      Can I ask how it’s going with a 6 week old? How do you feel? What’s your day like?

    I live in Vancouver, BC and this looks like it might be the last warm weekend for a long time so my plans include some beach time, some out door runs, BBQing and hanging out with friends before the rain sets in!

    I can’t even believe that plane!! We are canning tomatoes tomorrow and I have a 9 mile training run on Sunday. Happy B-day to your hubby. :)
