Happy birthday to me!

Today was my birthday! :) Of course Mr. Amazing made breakfast while attempting to let me sleep in. Then Mr. Amazing and I taught toddlers church (10 children between the ages of 2 and 4 make for a rather intense hour and a half). The boys did the dishes, and Mr. Amazing decorated my cake! This is special because he has never decorated a cake before (He always goes for the pre-made cakes at King Soopers). I think he did a pretty good job! He defiantly gets an 'A' for effort and for being his amazingly sweet self! After cake he took me out to dinner (Red Robins...Yum), and then since there weren't any decent movies in the theaters we went and played pool. (Unfortunately, I forgot my camera :( boo!)

F.Y.I. I am horrid at pool. I use to be rather okay, and maybe even decent, but I haven't played for over 2 years... I was excited if I hit the ball that I was aiming at. Our first game, Mr. Amazing sank the 8 ball on accident half way through. This is an automatic win for me! Woo Hoo! I'm so glad, because we played out the game anyway (wouldn't want to waste or quarters!) and he had all of his balls in the hole while I still had 4 on the table... it took me another 5-10 minutes to get mine all in. Did I mention I'm horrid at pool? The second game I won on my own merit... but he might possibly have let me win. He said he didn't and if he did it wasn't obvious, but after the first game I have to wonder! The third game, I sunk the 8 ball on like the 3rd shot... :( not that it would have mattered as we played out the game and again, I was the only one with balls left on the table. Only 2... but it took forever to get them to go where they belonged. So technically I won 2 out of 3 games :)

I am so blessed to have such an amazing husband! He really does do every thing that he can to make me happy :)

I can't finish this post without including Mr. Amazing's mother. She's wonderful too. :) She sent me the sweetest birthday e-mail, with my new all time favorite birthday blessing! It read as follows:
Happy Birthday to you, Only one will not do, Born Again Means Salvation, We're so Glad you have TWO.

Isn't she great!

On a sadder noted. Mr. Amazing found out that everyone at the corporate office was fired. One of the corporate stores near by found out that they weren't bought out and were just shutting down all together... tomorrow. So he might very possibly not have a job tomorrow morning, we just don't know. But God does! I am so thankful that we have an awesome Savior and aren't going through this time with no hope!

For this wonderful Mr. Monday, I would love to hear the great things that your Mr.'s do for your birthdays! Write a post or leave a comment (please). :)


  1. Awww... Happy Birthday, Harter! May you will blessed with many more years of happiness :)

  2. Happy Birthday!

    In 2009, Mi Amor tried to propose on my birthday, but ended getting called to work. He was so frustrated! Last year, he surprised me by taking a vacation day. Unfortunately, I got sick with the flu so he spent the day taking care of me... lol

    btw, I'm terrible at pool, but still enjoy playing with my husband once in awhile too! :)

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day!!! What a beautiful birthday message from your mother-in-law! :) She should send it into hallmark

  4. Harter,

    Blessings, and so glad you had a wonderful birthday!
