Okay, for anyone that knows Scot well, this bag was made for him. He LoVEs to remind me of this anytime I’m heading out the door with shopping on the brain…especially if my mom & sisters are involved. We joke that he is constantly pulling on my reigns to keep my spending in tact…and for that I’m grateful, but I might have laughed right out loud when I saw this bag.
But celebrate we did. Scot’s birthday always gets caught up in the start of school, Labor Day & his family’s beach camping trip that we are always trying to squeeze in an adequate celebration! On his actual birthday, we spent the evening watching Zack’s skateboard class — such is the life right now. So instead of making his favorite meal, as per usual, we headed out to eat, which we don’t do too often as a family. I’m happy to report, it was almost enjoyable!
We came home for cupcakes & presents & these kids…they are pretty sure he hung the moon. The thing about birthdays these days, is I don’t have to do all the prep work. These guys decorated & blew up balloons, wrapped presents & lit all the candles. I love that they love running the show & know just what to do. Zack even had our room all decorated without us knowing. Cute kids.
We did our birthday date night & I posted this pic on instagram only to have a slew of people wonder how I got Scot to spend a date night shopping. Let me clear that up: We were shopping for him.
One of my favorite things about Scot is that he tolerates & even encourages all the many hats I wear on my head. Little did he know that when he married me, he also married my family. He is happy to let me continue to be a daughter, a sister & a friend to those around me. He constantly supports me in any endeavor & I’m grateful that he allows me to be well-rounded. He is really the glue that holds this all together & I’m so so grateful to him for allowing me such a life. Love you big Scot. Happiest of birthdays.
