Birthday Blessings

Today is hubby's 61st birthday. So I called him my little leprechaun, so I got up early this morning just to fix him breakfast in bed. I kept looking at the clock saying to myself that I had to get ready for work, but he enjoyed every bite of it. So earlier, I asked him what did he want for his big day and his requests were very simple. He wanted two things. The first was this shirt and that I go to the mall with him to get it. Now let's just say, I really don't prefer going to the mall. That is my least favorite place to go, but I thought if that was one of the requests, then I would go with him to the mall. So he got his shirt and was happy.

The second request was that he wanted an ice cream cake. This shouldn't be too hard to do. Just go to the store, pick it out and go, right? Wellllllll.....see what had happened was.......

We went to the store and since I don't eat chocolate cake, I told hubby to pick the one he wanted to get since it was his birthday. He said he wanted to get something that he knew I would eat too. Now ain't that punkin, cause I probably would have been selfish if it's for MY birthday and gotten something with white chocolate all over it. So anyways, we looked in the freezer at the grocery store and asked the lady who was working in the bakery which one was an ice cream cake. She came out and pointed to what was what. I told hubby to get the cookies and cream but he wouldn't because I don't eat Oreo's either. So he opted for the vanilla cake with white icing.

You would not believe that after we got home and cut the cake (oh we decided to do the cake thing early) there was no ice cream in the cake. How can there be no ice cream in an ice cream cake! Of all the receipts I keep, how come I couldn't find my receipt. Sure enough when we looked at the label on the container, it did say ice cream cake. I will be calling the manager later on today. I might not get any results but what's the worse than can happen? So everyone still enjoyed the cake but I told hubby that it might not be today, but he WILL get his ice cream, because after all, you're only 61 once.

Lovingly yours,
