Happy Birthday to the love of my life!
Because we both worked today, I had to cram a lot into the evening. I came home at lunch to start a crock pot pot roast (See Meredith? I did it!:). I also made a new corn recipe since Bradley loves it. Both dishes were amazing and are going on the 5 Stars recipe board tonight!
For gift time, I rounded up a few random items that I thought he would love. The first was a man-can! I heard about this teenage boy who makes these candles at home in soup cans (the soup he donates to soup kitchens!) on tv. The story goes that he thought there weren’t any candles worthy of men, so he has developed scents like Bacon, Fresh Cut Grass, and Campfire. Secondly, I got him some Whiskey Rocks. These are stones made of soapstone that are frozen and then used in any drink that you don’t want to get watered down. Soapstone is non-porous, has ‘superior thermal properties’, doesn’t scratch the glass, and does not impart flavors or odors to your drink. Lastly, I was able to find the same clock they have in Aretha Frankensteins, which Bradley mentioned really liking the first time we visited.
Here is the clock at Aretha’s:
Oh, the sentiment! And, here is the card I got him (font humor…perfect for him:)
