a part of Love
This weekend we celebrated Jeremy’s birthday, the big 3-5. We’ve been keeping things pretty calm (aka cheap) in our lives… staying out of trouble… adding money to our bank account. And I’m happy to say that we (pretty much) stuck to the same for this weekend, but we were able to add quite a bit of fun to it!
We spent Thursday night casino hopping. First we went to the “nice” casino because it was apparently Girls Night at the bar there, where girls were supposed to drink for free. We got our first drinks at 9:58, so missed the mark by two minutes. Then when I went to get another drink they charged me, saying they were not doing Girls Night. Boo. So we went inside of the gambling section of the casino, where they give you drinks if you are gambling. So we each played with $5 and I actually ended up winning, and so did he! Then we went to the smaller casino, where they gave him a t-shirt when we told the front desk that it was birthday. And we won a bit there, which made the night even better.
The next day Jeremy took off work (it was his birthday!) and we spent the day in Louisiana hopping from crawfish fries and friends’ houses and little parties. We dressed Penny up with her favorite bow and she even made quite a few friends. She wasn’t quite used to be the biggest dog of the bunch, and they followed her around everywhere.
At the end of his birthday I gave him his present. We don’t have much money, and I wanted to do something special for him. So I made a few Redeemable Love Cards (or that’s the name I made up), wrapped it in a bow, and voila. The cards included free “dinner by me,” “30 minute back massage,” “night with no laptop,” and a cuddle session. Tomorrow I will post the tutorial on how to make the cards, plus a few downloadable cards!
