A New Decade

We just recently celebrated my husband's 30th birthday. It's one of those things that many people make a big deal about, but it didn't seem too bad. Maybe I won't feel the same way when I reach 30 years though. Only time will tell. Somehow age always looks more acceptable on men than it does women. Grey hair makes men look distinguished, but it makes women look aged. It's just not fair.

In anticipation of my man's big day, I made some mini cupcakes a few days before his actual birthday. I figured we would get plenty of good food on his birthday, and a little dessert for the week never hurt anyone. You can find the recipe for these yummy mini chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes { here }


My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so that's exactly what we had for dinner on his birthday. Bern's in South Tampa was the perfect place for a special birthday dinner. You only turn 30 years old once. Our dinner consisted of an appetizer, soup, salad, baked potato, and steak with vegetables and crispy onion rings. How much better does it get than that? After dinner we went upstairs to Bern's dessert room. That just about put us both over the edge. Everything was incredible. Needless to say, we will be back!


Happy Thursday friends!

    I hate the thought of getting grey hair. Ugh, but you're right. Men always look great with a touch of grey. It's not fair… O'well, what can you do?

    Great job on the cupcakes. They look great!!

  9. The cupcakes look delicious! Last year, my husband (then-boyfriend) turned 30. I planned a dinner with his friends and all. He was kind of freaking out. Actually, he started freaking out when he turned 29. But don't tell him I said this. He will deny it til his death haha :)
