Please Wish Him A Very Happy 70th!

From Baby to Scholar!
Well 30 years ago I started dating the man (He was 40 at the time!) you see in the photos above.  At that point in my life I thought I was going to be by myself and that was OK with me.  So long story short, I found out three things that hooked me.  He taught statistics in college (I flunked every math class I took in high school!), he cooked (very well) AND cleaned up after himself and our mothers were born on the same day in February!  So even though we were born miles apart, we had soo much in common besides our moms.  It was meant to be!

So this weekend we are celebrating his birth with multiple events that may or may not happen because of the weather!  The one event he really wants to have happen is dinner at the Grand Concourse.  I'm thinking it will go on as planned.  I'm so glad I didn't plan a big party because the weather isn't going to cooperate AGAIN!  So if you don't hear from me until later, I hope you will understand.  I will post extra photos later.  He makes me laugh almost every day.  In fact we just had a giggle while I have been typing this.  Love you Herbal Husband!  Happiest of Birthdays to You! xoxo

The Birthday Man and Me at the Grand Concourse
What's Left of a Martha's Vineyard Salad!
My Maryland Crabcakes with Rice and Broccoli!
His Lemon Chicken with Mashed Potatoes!
The Delicious Bread Basket with Crackers, Biscuits and Rolls!
A Cappuccino with Real Whipped Cream!
His Dulce de Leche Cheesecake!
My Key Lime Pie!
Well, hopefully you can see what a great time we had at the Grand Concourse Restaurant last night!  We were pigs and overate!  I try not to do that too often, but it was a very special birthday.  I think what put The Herbal Husband over the top was the second bread basket!  He ate most of it!  Really!  He woke up to greetings from the readers of my blog, some classmates and friends on Facebook and cards from many of our friends and of course, me.  It is snowing again here so we have had a quiet day.  He was out briefly shoveling a space to feed the birds.  We will be glued to the Oscars later.  Hopefully you are having a great day!  Talk to you later.

Happy 70th bday Herbal Husband!!!

What a great love story!

My husband and I did a lot of laughing together too. I miss that.

Laughter is good for our hearts and souls, good medicine.

I hope the weather cooperates and you're able to celebrate with several plans.

Love and hugs to you both ~ FlowerLady
