A Golden Birthday Celebration
Hubby flew home just in time for his birthday last week, which is always exciting because we miss so many holidays and celebrations due to his job. I have mentioned this often when I talk about hubby, but there are three foods that he loves most in this world: meat, yogurt and ice cream. So naturally I had to supply him with ice cream in lieu of a birthday cake!
The thing about hubby is that he has a very open personality. If you're close, you may find him reaching across the table and eating right off your plate. That took me some getting used to until I realized it was just his sharing character. These days we often just have a communal plate and it works well because our food preferences complement each other. I eat meat sparingly, whereas he is a carnivore, and I love veggies, but him not so much. So on any given plate he will eat most of the meat, I will eat most of the veggies, and we are both happy campers. But if there is something we both love...more often that not, he wins.
Do you guys have things that your significant other steals from you? Besides my food, my hubby likes to steal my sunglasses, my cuticle cutters and tweezers (random huh!), and my cash to use at his work's snack bar. Other things we politely "fight" over are his mom's chocolate chip cookies, the camera if we only brought one, and the laptop if we're both on the road at the same time. It's hilarious when you really think about the random things they like to "borrow" from you. Check out the "So Good He Steals It" infograph at the bottom of the post. It gave me a good chuckle because everything is sooo true of me and my hubs. We even use two separate blankets when we sleep because one will inevitably steal from the other haha.
The good thing about hubby's plate-reaching and "borrowing" is that it makes me very aware of what his likes and dislikes are, so when I want to spoil him I know just how to. For his birthday I wanted to supply him with at least one thing he wouldn't have to borrow and could have to his heart's content, so I put together this "ice cream cake." Yummy for hubby, easy for wifey, and enjoyed by all. Skinny Cow seems to be generally accepted as a female ice cream product, but my hubs loves them. They're definitely meant to be enjoyed by all, and their new chocolatey dipped ice cream sandwiches are uh-mazing guys. The perfect trifecta of ice cream, wafer cookies and chocolatey goodness. There are three delish flavors and I recommend trying them all: Vanilla Bean Dream, Ultimate Chocolate, and Creamy Caramel. Find out where to buy them near you HERE. Then check out our little birthday celebration below and tell me: what does your significant other like to steal from you?
