Happy birthday, Honey Bear!

Yesterday it was David's birthday. It was our very first birthday together :p (In case you're new here, we had a long distance relationship for 3 years and 3 months until I moved here from Argentina). It's been and it will be a year of a lot of first celebrations together (first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's). 

Since I'm still jobless, I couldn't buy him a birthday present :(. I mean, I could have used the credit card, but I don't know, I didn't feel right doing it. I still wanted to give him a little something, so I had to manage with what I had at home.

I wrote him a card, of course :), stuck those 3 colorful naughty post it notes, hehe ...

... I had these 2 heart shaped boxes from Valentine's Day, so I used them to put some fortunes. I put one heart on his pillow and the other one in his backpack (he must have found it this morning at work).

I also made a checkbook with construction paper, hehe :p. He can cash the checks whenever he wants to skip chores, be cuddled and stuff like that ;p.

And I also gave him a children's Star Wars book as a joke :p.

He found this when we got home after a small family party at my mother-in-law's house :). She bought lots of stuff, including a delicious 3 leches cake. It looked like a child's birthday party, hehe.

Happy birthday, Honey Bear! Thank you for being so sweet to me and for making me a better person. I love you more than words can express! <3

Happy Thursday, everybody!

Hope you're getting ready for the weekend! ;D

Mikiiii! Sos tan TAn dulce! Esa torta, esos banderines, esas cajitas, esos cupones! Yo para el cumple de Pablo le regalé un pullover bastante caro, pero lo sentía muy frpio, entonces le armé unos mipones, que eraun cuponera de sus mimos preferidos a canjear cuando quisiera.. jejej. Era muuucho pero mucho menos voistosa y prolijita que la tuya! Sos una diosa, seguro David murió al ver todo eso. Ahora ya sabe por qué tenía que pasarsus cumples con vos! =) Un beso grande, buen fin de semana!
