Happy Birthday Daddio!

Today my Dad turns 54! Whoohoo! I'm sure he is stoked. As he puts it, "one more year until retirement". Although I can't imagine him not working, his dad still works everyday and he just turned 80!

We had a little early birthday celebration for him up here Sunday evening. We ate at Moonshine, which is one of our favorite restaurants we've discovered in Austin. If you are ever in the area, eat there. It's fancy home cooked goodness and it is delish

After dinner we hung out at our place for a bit for coffee, tea, and of course (cup)cakes and presents! And even though we were at home, I still was too lazy to grab an actual camera. My bad.

The cupcakes were so good, they are my step-momma's specialty! There were red velvet and apple spice cupcakes, yum yum yum!

This is the card I made him! It's a party-animal-birthday-bass obviously, as my dad is an avid fisherman. I think it came out great, except that I lost my glue stick so I was forced to use Elmer's glue. That stuff warps paper like no ones business plus it gets everywhere. And when you're the worlds messiest person already, it just gets ridiculous. But aside from the wonkyness and stickiness, it was a lot of fun to make. I love making cards! No more store bought cards for me. These are way more fun, cheaper, and I think they're a bit more special if not just extra weird and funny looking.

So happy birthday Daddy! Thank you for supporting me through everything, being hilarious, and giving me your "project" genes. We love you and fish on!

  1. Looks like you woke up at the same time as me and Kennedy! She woke up saying "I have to pee pee" haha. That card is awesome. And I totally appreciate homemade cards. Much more meaningful. I love cards in general but I always feel like when I purchase cards for people they just go in the trash. I'll start using my daughter's art skills for cards soon enough and just be one of those people that think things are cute because their kid did it. Happy Birthday to your daddy!
