We celebrated the day with dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. He had never been and I wanted him to experience it. I had been to the one in Kansas City, where we sat next to Derek Jeter and some other players for the Yankees. Of course I didn't really know who he was except that I had seen him on the magazines for dating Jessica Simpson. Anyhoo, that paled in comparison to having dinner with my love on his birthday in downtown Austin! Everything was just delicious, including this appetizer that I barely remembered to snap a picture of before we devoured it. It was lobster bits with sweet and spicy Tai sauce. Yummy!
After dinner it was time to open his gifts from me. He had already received some early gifts from my family while they were here for Thanksgiving. He was not so happy to receive underwear for his birthday, but I thought it was funny. No worries, he also got a video game and a special print a la moi of Roxie for his office.
It was a lovely evening and I can't wait to share many more birthdays with my husband!
