Happy Birthday to the Great Gift God has given me <3

Today was not my husband’s birthday. He chose to celebrate today and didn’t want us to acknowledge it last Monday (which was his REAL birthday).Displaying FullSizeRender.jpg

He wanted to have a party today. He saved up his birthday money and a shopping we went.

Off to the Williamsburg Outlets we did go.

Yes, it is Valentine’s Day, but, since everyday is Valentine’s Day around here (wink wink, nudge nudge), we decided to bring the kiddos along on our adventure.

We knew it was going to be rough on my ol’ body, so we just took it S-L-O-W-L-Y! Spend hours and hours getting some AMAZING deals. We literally spent less than a third of the retail prices. Sweatshirts $10!!!! Reebok, Adidas, etc… Insane deals everywhere!

The best part was seeing how much fun my hubby was having. He never goes out and splurges on new clothes and fun things that he just wants. He is always spending his money taking care of us, buying things for us and being the amazing provider, husband and father that he is.

Now, I sleep for 3 weeks straight to recover. I will be aching for days. Was it worth it? Absolutely. See that gorgeous smile on my husband’s face? That’s worth a million painful days.

I love you, baby! Happy Birthday! Thank you for being my man (:

Happy Birthday!!!
