Day 555: celebration


Today is my wonderful husband's birthday! We've been celebrating since Saturday night and I hope he's enjoyed all of the festivities -- he deserves it!


He is nearly impossible to surprise with gifts, partly because he is particular about things, but also because he is sneaky. I did manage to pull of a couple of fun birthday treats: season three of our favorite show on DVD, a subscription to his favorite magazine and these three vintage beer bottles from Sweden. He knew I bought them here while I was out hunting after-Christmas deals, and confessed to scouting the Web site looking for something I may have bought him -- told you he was sneaky!


Lucky for me they weren't listed online, but I did spot them in this pretty photo. I suppose the moral of the story is that I must shop for him in stores that I like in order to surprise him, right?

Happy birthday, Wes! Btw - David's favorite magazine is Mental Floss too! I had never heard of it and didn't know anyone else that read it! :-) It's pretty cool. So are those bottles! Good find :-)
