Surprise! Dave’s Christmas in July 30th birthday party worked! And the cake from Bakery Gingham turned out perfect. It was HUGE and delicious, as always.
GPOYSP (Gratuitous Picture of Your Surprise Party)
- I turned 30 a few weeks ago. I kept it quiet because I’m now embarrassingly old.
- My 30-year streak of avoiding surprise parties ended yesterday.
- I have the best wife.
- A “Christmas in July”-themed party works best when said wife has stockpiled a healthy amount of Great Lakes Brewing Co.’s Christmas Ale, possibly the best beer there is.
- A Christmas Ale-themed party works best when the wife commissions a birthday cake to be made in the shape of a bottle of Christmas Ale (seriously, scroll through to that cake photo…it’s awesome).
So basically, I spent yesterday drinking my favorite beer that hasn’t been available for months, eating my favorite unhealthy foods (a few Buckeye pizzas from Adriaticos; a tray of Raising Cane’s, complete with a comical amount of Cane’s sauce; and oh yeah, that birthday cake was an unfathomably delicious red velvet), and hanging out with friends and family.
In closing, better luck next year for all those other Best Wife finalists, cause Erin’s got this contest all sewn up.
