Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

Mr. Serious brought home an awesome apple pie for my birthday. With a caramel/butterscotch something so good I’m sure that’s not what it’s called topping. He did good and totally surprised me! We waited to postpone the actual meal out celebration for this weekend because of a choir rehersal.


Usually, I hem and haw and can’t make up my mind, but this year, I actually put in a request for Chuy’s. It’s so good (mmmmm..creamy jalapeno…margaritas…..) so I knew that’s where we should go. Lunch just worked out better, so we were off.

It didn’t disappoint and we had a nice time. The girls were pleasantly surprised that they were offered dessert after their lunches (even E got her own) and that we let them. You can’t beat a rainbow sherbet pushpop.

In hindsight, I wish I would have gotten all of the girls on my lap with their push pops, but they probably would have thought I was trying to take them away!

Thank you, my most favorite people for making my birthday week so special.
