Today is a special day. It’s Bart’s birthday and thus, our day will revolve around food celebrating.

Plans include:

  • Waffles with lemon curd for breakfast
  • The day off from work
  • Lunch at Schlotzky’s and Firehouse and Sonic (hello, free birthday food)
  • Some time at the splash pad
  • Afternoon naps for all
  • Dinner with Landen and Adam and some other friends at Fuddruckers
  • Tickets (and Junior Mints) to see The Avengers (holy smokes, have you seen the reviews on this? Everyone is loving it). 
  • Brownies with mint ice cream and hot fudge on Sunday night with friends
  • Boating tomorrow

How can you not love a birthday? And how can you not love this guy? Happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday, Bart!

    Yeah, I am definitely not a superheroes kind of girl, but my Facebook basically EXPLODED with people who were drunk on Avengers and swore it was the greatest film ever made. So… I might have to see it.

    Have a great time celebrating!

    janssen– after searching in your goodreads for maybe an hour not being able to find it, I'll just ask: a year ago or so you reviewed a picture book that had dots that "changed" when you did what the page said. Do you know the book I'm referring to? thanks! p.s. i've been making some of your vegetarian recipes. yum!
