Christopher’s Birthday!

Christopher turned 26 this past Friday! So we played both took the day off work and had a fabulous day. Highlights:

Why yes, yes he did get a Batman “pocket knife” from me. He was so excited. But not near as excited as he was about the leather tool belt I got him. What can I say? I married a very handy man, haha!

Lunch was at Texas de Brazil. It is more or less an all-you-can-eat meat buffet where they bring each freshly grilled meat right to your table.ย ย They also have an incredible salad bar area. The whole thing is amazing. Expensive, but totally worth it for a special occasion. ๐Ÿ™‚

After lunch we went to the ย most retro movie theatre I’ve ever been to. We saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. It was hilarious. I mean, it was good overall, but parts of it had us literally laughing out loud. If you’ve seen it then you know what I’m talking about when I say that the whole “pony”ย montageย had us rolling with laughter. And then later when we references the horrible dream about a “satanic pony”… oh gracious, we laughed so hard. ๐Ÿ™‚

After the movie we headed home so we could toss together some loaded potato salad (cooked potatoes + bacon + ranch packet + sour cream + cheese = delish!) and deviled eggs for a Christmas party with our friends.

Christmas party! ๐Ÿ™‚

All in all it was such a great day. I am so grateful to have this man in my life! It’s crazy to think that we’ve been together since he was 18… time sure does fly when you’re having fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gah Texas de Brazil is so different from any other restaurant! Unfortunately for me, I don’t eat red meat so whenever I go with friends it’s not really worth it. Still love the ambiance though!

  2. So glad you guys had such a great time celebrating! That German chocolate cake looks legit, I can’t even remember the last time I had that stuff but I do remember that it sure was good! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I saw that movie with my boyfriend, his sister, his couisins, and his sister-in-law’s brother. Yes, I loved that movie so much, and thought it was funnier than the first, and had as much action as the first. I like both, but this was more funny ๐Ÿ™‚
