A happy happy HAPPY 29th birthday to my dearest husband Simon. You are my best friend, my confidante, sweetest daddy to our darling Jude, and I am so proud of you.
And you guys! I have SUCH good news! Our God is SO good and so awesome! He has good plans for us and He keeps His promises. Simon is now gainfully employed and has begun his career in residential real estate. He made the decision last week and signed on with Keller Williams here in Oklahoma City. I am so proud of him and he is so excited about this exciting new venture. I know God has led him to this decision and that He has his hand all over this!
We are celebrating Simon’s birthday all weekend. Yesterday I let him open his presents (a day early! Am I a good wife or what? hee hee) and I made him the promised red velvet whoopie pies. You guys have GOT to make them – I got a Sprinkles mix from Williams-Sonoma and just laid out cookie-sized dollops of the batter onto cookie sheets and baked for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Then. After they’ve cooled, you smear cream cheese frosting in the middle and they are absolutely divine. Red velvet is Simon’s absolute favorite, and so this was a fun spin on a classic. Last night we ate dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then today, we will have a big family dinner at Victoria’s, a favorite Italian restaurant in Norman.
More pictures and stuff to come, I’m sure!
I love you, Simon!
