I turn 41 tomorrow. Holy crap, how did that happen? I swear I was just 11, like yesterday.
We don't usually plan a lot for my birthday or David's birthday. We just want to hang out with our kids and maybe have one of our favorite meals and cake. That's what we planned to do with my birthday on Saturday.
But, we won that bacon contest a month ago, and part of the win was a free pair of Coyotes tickets. They are the hockey team in Phoenix. We finally got our package on Wednesday and the tickets are for Saturday, my birthday. Gee, talk about short notice. We weren't sure if we'd go or what we'd do with the kids, but I knew my husband would never pass up center ice 15th row seats to a hockey game. They are $125 tickets. Each! And even though a hockey game is not my most favorite thing in the world, spending time with my husband is. And dinner and a hockey game alone with my husband on my birthday is a great way to spend the evening.
We are heading down early to visit my best friend Pam for a bit. Then, my Mom offered to watch the kiddos while we went out. So, we'll drop them off at her house and then head out for our night of fun.
That meant that David had to make my cheesecake last night, so we can have an early piece today since we'll be gone almost the entire day on my birthday. Here is the during. Noah had to help of course.
Homemade cheesecake is always my favorite!
