Happy Birthday Bradley!

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!

I made a coca-cola cake with his favorite icing too, but the cake crumbled right out of the pan, so I won’t be posting that picture.

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:)

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
