Happy Hour Friday – Will’s Birthday

It’s Friday!  And it’s finally a Happy Hour Friday again!  I have been very sporadic with my blogging lately, but here’s a twist – I am actually happy about that!  Not because I am noncommittal or because I don’t enjoy blogging anymore.  I am committed, and I do enjoy it!  (I don’t enjoy that eating apples at my desk has left some sticky residue under the “J” key making it stick every time….)

I am happy because life is a whirlwind, but it’s full of kodack moments, big laughs, bigger hugs, growing pains, happy accidents, and so many more everyday adventures.

Lately, Will and I haven’t had to look too hard to see them.  Especially since it’s Will’s birthday month!  I say birthday month, because I didn’t know whether or not birthday week is the 7 days leading up to a person’s birthday, or the calendar week of some one’s birthday.  So since Will’s birthday was on Monday the 7th he got the first week of April leading up to his birthday and the week after it. that’s two weeks of celebrating him, which he is definitely worthy of =).  The reason we’re stretching it to birthday month though is because we will celebrate again with my parents when they come in town for Easter!  The good times keep on coming!

I thought about posting yet another blog about how great I think my husband is, but why be redundant? Obviously I think that he is great or I wouldn’t have married him. Crazy, I know.  So instead I will just fill you in on some of our adventures in celebrating his birthday.  And if you want to know what to look for in a man then click on the links to some of my previous posts about Will at the bottom of the page.

Our birthday festivities kicked off with a trip up to Cincinnati to see the Reds’ Opening Night game.  There was a 3 hour rain delay… but luckily my boss had given us tickets to seats that had access to an indoor area so we were able to stay warm and dry!

So excited to go to his first game of the season!

Will loves the Reds!  As you may recall from a previous Manly Date Night post, baseball is his favorite sport.  One of my favorite ways to spend time with him is going to a baseball game (because I find it much more interesting in person).  Since baseball is such a huge part of our relationship with so many memories and jokes attached to it, I made Will some framed collages of our baseball adventures together since over the last 3 years.

Will’s Grandma’s birthday is the day after his, so the fam jam came down to our house to celebrate both Will and Gram.  AND since UK was playing in the Final Four that night, we had a UK themed birthday party/watch party.

For our personal celebration, I invited Will out for a Manly Date Night.  Actually I invited him on 4 and let him choose.  The one he picked was the “Space Jam” themed Manly Date Night; that was the sci-fi date night.  We went to dinner at The Pub (that doesn’t really have anything to do with sci-fi…. except I feel like anything titled “Bangers & Mash” ought to qualify lol).  The sci-fi portion was indulging in some “Ice Cream of the Future” and going to see Divergent.

  1. about that apple at work… I have discovered a 2-cup Pyrex bowl is perfect for my desk. I can keep fruit in it if I have to put something down to answer the phone, it keeps a yogurt spoon off the desk if I don’t get right to the sink… oh- it sure sounds like a lot of procrastination on my part. lol.
