Monday morning before heading off to work Hubby opened his presents from me & his parents (who made sure they were mailed in time to be here). I stuck with mostly clothes since that's what he had asked for. Most everything fit, but it never fails that something doesn't just work quite right. From his parents he got a Michigan Wolverine garden knome but probably even more special was his "bucket list." Together with his dad, Hubby has a fairly large, but mostly realistic goal to play golf at the Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses during his lifetime. Golf Digest produces a plaque with pegs to check off those that have been completed. Normally they are able to check off at least 1 course if not more per year...they better get busy if they're going to reach their goal! Hubby's dad already has a similar plaque and I'm so glad he now has one of his own. Golf is such a huge passion of his & I think this is such a fun goal for Hubby & his dad.
Hubby had no choice and married into our crazy (use any excuse to get together) family! So...on Monday night I planned a small get together of some close friends & family to celebrate Hubby's big day. Not everyone was able to come but we ended up with a great group & a great evening. I made chocolate cake with homemade cream cheese icing but also ordered a cookie cake with lots of icing which is Hubby's favorite. We didn't really need all that food, but I hadn't had chocolate cake in a long time & decided we'd just have an over abundance of sweets!

Make a wish...I wonder what it was?!?
One of the gifts from my parents was a St. Louis Cardinal bean bag toss game. After it was opened my dad grabbed the camera & said "put your heads through the holes & we'll take a picture!" Why oh why do we always do stupid things when people tell us to?
