Birthday Presents Rock!

As many of you know, I turned 40 this past Wednesday and the day was relatively uneventful. We had planned to go out to dinner, but the weather, and consequently the roads, were too bad for us to be able to. My husband absolutely gets a huge gold star for the evening as he stopped at the grocery store on his way home from work and made an absolutely phenomenal dinner. The menu consisted of spicy crab cakes for an appetizer followed by Filet Mignon (topped with mini sliced portabellos that had been sauted in garlic butter and blue cheese all of which was warmed and melted under the broiler), asparagus, and twice baked potatoes. Dessert was a divinely decadent chocolate torte and champagne. To top it all off, he got me the lovely Victorian hot chocolate set pictured above and...the best birthday present EVER...a portable lighting studio.
