A bit over a month ago (and before we got all engaged), it was S' birthday. He wanted to keep it low key, and so we had a small family barbeque for him at home with his folks and girls.
The problem though is that S spoils me rotten ALL the time - and here we were making the poor man work like a smoke chef on his own birthday. So I decided to keep it low key, whilst trying to show him just how special he is to all of us.
Firstly, as soon as he got home from work, I made him wear a BIRTHDAY BOY badge. He was sooooo thrilled!
I also decorated the table we set all the food on.
By the end of the night, after a lot of eating, a bit of champagne and a lot of merriment, I ended up decorating him as well for the clincher.
All in all I think it made S happy, even if it was nothing like the scale he tends to pamper me with. I don't think I could possibly match up to his impossibly high standards though, so really, he only has himself to blame. :)
