Maple Sausage + cheese + egg + whole wheat biscuit = amazing.
But you first must understand the conversation behind it.
Britt- Ian, guess what? I read in a cook book, at work today, about this breakfast food. RR took turkey sausage and squished it into a patty, then added cheese and egg on a english muffin! She called it a breakfast burger! Isn't that a great idea?!
Ian- Um. You mean like a Sausage mcmuffin?
Brit- (dawning realization of the connection between the two) OOOooooooh. right.
He approves. :)
All done with work for the day. Heading out to dinner and a movie. Carrabbas and to see Eagle Eye. Both were great.
We used our wedding photographer's secret of having the groom squat down in order to get him to look more relaxed and not so cheesey. It worked I think!
Talking politics and ignorance on our drive to dinner. And during dinner. And on our drive to the movie. It WAS his birthday afterall, right?
Opening his fedex mailer from mom and dad.... he got scrabble! We love that game.
His loot. Some of the shirts need to be returned, but everything else was great! Crazy shirt sizes. I bout him 5 shirts all from O N and in the same size (m) and style (fitted,) but only 3 of them fit. Crazy.
This was the birthday banner that I was going to string together for him during my lunch break. Only, I got a call from the county saying I was approved as a substitute and had only 24 hours to get in to get my drug test. Which meant my lunch break was the only opportunity. So here lays the banner. Oh well. We'll use it next year. It's pretty don't you think?
Also, we're trying to start traditions so our first real one that we decided on is this : Tonight, after all of the festivities were over, Ian crawled into bed and I dug out our unity candle from the wedding. I lit it and took it to him, he held it as I snuggled in next to him, and I prayed for him and the coming year. We plan on doing this for each other on birthdays and we'll both do it on our anniversary. I think it's a great way to stay 'united' and to remember that the candle wasn't just a one time thing, it represented a lifetime of unity.
