Today has been one of the longest, most productive days Robert and I have had in a really long time. Between the two of us we helped a friend move, went to work, sent out some packages, and had a job interview. However, this evening has been fun and relaxing, and here is a little proof.
Above: How I set the table this morning before I went to work. Vintage table cloth, Robert's one present (isn't that sad?) and a special birthday crown. I was hoping to make a few surprise presents and a card for him this morning, but I failed. Bad!!
His birthday cake! Carrot with cream cheese frosting. So so good - he made it himself, of course, but he let me decorate it! I was lazy: just swirled the frosting and threw on some vintage cake decorations. Little green baby heads go with every occasion, right?
The one present! It's little, but it's special. I've been wanting to write about it on my blog for so long but it was a surprise! I got these little best friend needlepoint decorations at thegreatnorthern on etsy - their whole shop is Twin Peaks themed. This is supposed to be like Laura Palmer's necklace! Everything in their shop is hilarious/adorable!! We haven't decided where to put these yet, but I'll let you know if they find a place on the wall to live!
Look at my birthday boy!!! Officially 28. I asked him if he wanted to wear the crown and he told me that he'd actually been wondering if he could all afternoon! So I made him put on this "cape" and pose for me. It's okay that I treat him like a 5 year old because it's consensual and we both act that age.
These are some friends that showed up for the party. Pillow Monster and Gremmy! Pillow Monster is a friend I made for Robert a few years ago, and Gremmy is something we got on Etsy to replace one of his childhood toys. It's Gizmo from Gremlins!! Happy Birthday, buddy! [I have promised him we will have a post-birthday party tomorrow.]
