Stone's Chipotle party.

When Stone and I were engaged and going through pre-marital counseling we took a test, which told us what our love languages were... well, my first love language was gift giving (and along with that means, making a big deal on your birthday). This is Stone's last love language. So, last year for Stone's birthday, I went all out. I got him some great gifts, wrapped them beautifully, and made reservations at a fancy restaurant in Denver. Well, on the day of Stone's birthday we ended up having to drive through a blizzard, in rush hour traffic to try and make the reservation at a restaurant Stone did not even care to be at in the first place. Needless to say, we ended up arguing the majority of the time and I learned my lesson that on Stone's birthday, less is more.

Hence, the Chipotle party.

We had a few friends over for burritos and beer at our house last night. Easy and comfortable. I even made homemade ice cream for dessert! The night was so fun, and Stone loved every minute of it, which really is what matters. I think this will be a new tradition for Stone's birthdays from here on out :)

that is so sweet. I'm laughing because I've had tears on Trav's bday trying so hard to please him when nothing I wanted went as planned...hence the tears. Boys can be simple...but that's a good thing! Glad you guys had fun!

Hey! I can totally relate to that b'day blizzard story. My husband and I definitely speak different languages sometimes. Is it too late for pre-marital counseling if we have been married for three years :^)

I am a gift giver for sure but don't like people making a fuss over me for my b'day. Can I be multi-lingual?
