My first Aquarian.

Today is my sweet husband's 31st birthday. I wish I could say we've been partying non-stop since the clock struck midnight but the truth is we've barely had a chance to celebrate at all. He had to work really hard all day and even had a lunch meeting with his boss from Cincinatti. Then as soon as he got home, I ran off to my first photography class. Great class, bad timing.

Hopefully he had a fun enough birthday weekend to make up for it.

We went on a date on Saturday night which is a rare and wonderful treat. We went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner because, dammit, sometimes a chain restaurant is exactly what you want. (PS, we LOVED every minute of it!) After that we went to the Hustler Store which, as our friend Sean puts it, is like the Gap for porn. I had never been before and it was a fun way to end our date night.

Then last night, a few of our friends came over to eat pizza and watch cartoons. Watching cartoons is a great Sunday night tradition that we missed the last couple of weeks and it was great to get back into the swing of things. We even had a birthday key lime pie. With candles!

OK, so maybe it wasn't the greatest weekend of all time. Now that I've written it down I feel a little like Will Ferrell in Old School. We had a real nice little Saturday. We were hoping to make it to Bed, Bath & Beyond but we ran out of time. What can I say? 31 is OLD.

Last year, when he was just a 30 year old pup, we had a party to beat all parties. I don't even know why it was so great, it just was. We must have found the perfect mix of keg stands and karaoke or something. It was just one of those nights that words cannot do justice. Perhaps these photos will paint a better picture:

The birthday boys: Bill and our good friend Guy.

My sister's wearing a hair piece. Still, we look pretty fierce.

Pimp cups & crowns - Martha Stewart's got nothing on me!

It's Guy's fault - he said he wanted a stripper (thanks, Richie!).

The night was never the same after the Mexican wrestlers showed up.

Now that was a real nice little weekend!
