Today Josh turns 24, and we’re spending all day (minus what I had to work this morning) in celebration.

I was impatient and had him open his gifts last night…

Anyway, I’m off to spend some time with the birthday boy. Be sure to check out the recipe I used to make his two little birthday cupcakes. (I won’t even pretend it didn’t take me two tries to get them right.)

Happy Friday!

P.S. We’ll discuss {infatuation friday} another time.

Valentine’s surprises


Happy Valentine’s Day!

I got a nice Valentine surprise yesterday when I came home and found a card with my name on it waiting in the basket where Josh and I put our keys. I opened it and gushed about how sweet it was that he bought that for me.

But there was more.

jcardHe also bought me The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve talked about really wanting to watch it since before it even hit theaters (I loved, loved, loved the book). It was so nice because I wasn’t even expecting anything (we had agreed on no  gifts this year), but also because he listened (it’s not like I’ve raved about that movie–I’m pretty sure I only mentioned it a few times). It made me feel really special.

On a separate note, I adore that I’m not too old to get Valentines from my mom, who sent me a super sweet card and has reminded me that she loves me at least four times in the last four hours.

mcardI’m also loving the e-cards and status updates I’ve seen in the past 24 hours or so. Particularly these Valentines for journalists (and theseand these). Plus, TheSkimm has been sharing Law & Order Valentines on Facebook (though, not to be a prude, I think one in particular goes too far–you’ll know it when you see it). There are also these Supreme Court Valentines (via WSJ & Georgetown Law Weekly) that I chuckled at.

Celebrating this weekend (like Josh and I are)? You could totally make one of these treats for your hunny (or yourself).
