Ryan arrived home from work today to a table filled with presents in honor of his birthday!
(Yes, I did use butterfly wrapping paper. It was either that or Christmas paper and I figured butterflies are technically bugs which are boyish. Right? Sure.)
I also busted out my bin of markers to make festive birthday signs like I did last year and realized that a bunch of my markers were all dried out.
Apparently I need Monica Gellar to follow me around to make sure the caps go “click” when I put them on. Or I just need to invest in new markers and realize that the same makers I’ve had since grade school have run their course.
We opened presents and Ryan seemed to like all of his gifts which is great!
Gift unwrapping was preceded by dinner which included Ryan’s favorite salmon with a raspberry glaze, roasted summer squash and a side of garlic bread that I made by topping a whole wheat sandwich thin with butter and garlic salt.
I seasoned the summer squash with Garlic Gold sea salt nuggets that the company sent me to try.
Ryan and I loved them! They added the perfect pop of flavor to the roasted squash.
The salmon was a hit as well.
Now it’s time for dessert! Someone has some candles to blow out…
