Wednesday Wish List: The Birthday Boy

It's that time again. Time for another edition of your favorite Wednesday Wish List! Before I jump into this weeks wish list, I just had to announce that one of my very best friends had her baby boy yesterday! Baby Boy R arrived about a week early and their little family is doing great!! I am absolutely DYING to get down there and see them, but since we live about an hour apart, and I work full time now, I won't be meeting the little one until tomorrow night. The anticipation is killing me, but I couldn't be happier for them!

In other news, B's birthday is Friday! He'll be turning 27, and finally catching up to my age (a few months late!) Since this is his first "married" birthday, I have been trying to come up with ideas for how I can make this year special for him. Here's what I've got so far:
  • I bought him a new driver to go with the new irons that he got earlier this year. Not only did I order it early, but he already used it over the weekend at the driving range and he loved it! Golf clubs = the way to my man's heart these days!
  • I'm a serious/lovey-dovey type of a card buyer. Yep, you read that right, whatever it means. I bought him a sweet card and will write him a letter to go in it. Letters are kind of a tradition for us. 
  • One of the new things that I want to do this year (now that we live in the same house and all) is wake up early and cook him a yummy breakfast. It would be a real treat if I could get up without him knowing, somehow manage to look cute, get the pup settled and have a meal ready for him in time for when he wakes up. Will I pull it off? I guess we'll have to wait and see!
  • Since neither of us have the luxury of taking the day off of work on Friday to celebrate, we'll have to hold off until Friday evening. My parents are actually coming into town on Friday afternoon, so the four of us will get to go out for dinner to celebrate together. It will be nice to spend the evening with great company. Hopefully the birthday boy has been thinking about where he wants to eat!
  • Speaking of golf, I was also thinking that it would be a nice treat for B and my Dad to play a round of golf together on Saturday morning. My Dad is going to bring his clubs, so I am hoping the weather holds out for them to spend a few hours doing that. And the ladies? I'm sure we can fill that time with something fun, err shopping?!
Now that I've take a look at my plan all written out, it doesn't look quite as extravagant as I had hoped, but it's the little things, right?  And, I guess extra hugs, kisses and squeezes goes without saying? I love that birthday boy.
