I Gotta Brag

...on my wonderful husband! He absolutely spoiled me rotten for my birthday. :D Birthdays are not a big deal to him, so it really meant a lot that he put so much thought and effort into making mine special!

He handed me this on Saturday night:

and asked me to pick what I wanted for breakfast in bed on Sunday morning! (This is a Masters family tradition which I just love. When else are you allowed have crumbs in the sheets?!) Dear Clay even went out and bought a breakfast tray with legs for the occasion.

So Sunday morning I enjoyed a lovely breakfast in bed (sorry, no picture). Afterwards, I had some time to read one of the books my parents sent; it's called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.

It was so nice not to get out of bed until almost 11:00am!

I finally showered and got dressed, then we hopped on the scooter and headed to the Movie Tavern on 7th Street. We ate lunch there and watched Life As We Know It, which I had wanted to see.

Watching a movie in the theater was such a treat! And it was actually very entertaining - I caught Clay chuckling pretty hard during a few of the scenes.

Since it was such a nice day, we ran a few errands on the scooter before heading back to the house. Then Clay presented me with his gift:
I am now officially an adult because I have real watch (not one of those $12 ones from Target).

Next we headed over to my friend Lindsay's house for a Halloween party. Clay didn't really know many of the people there, but he was so sweet to do just what I wanted! We also stopped by the Kinzie's to watch a little bit of the World Series before calling it a night.

Even though my birthday technically ended, that didn't stop Clay! On Monday morning before he left for training in Orlando, he stopped by my work and brought me these beauties:

When I got home that evening, I discovered I had these waiting too!

I just kept finding flowers all over the house!

Needless to say, Clay really outdid himself for my birthday this year. I am so lucky to have such a thoughtful and loving husband! That's definitely the best gift of all. :)
