Today is Conrad's 30 something birthday. I wanted to write and share with you how much I love and appreciate this husband in my life, but unfortunately, I can't follow a train of thought for more than a few minutes at a time these days...I wonder if I can still blame that on the kids
I started the celebration by spending the WHOLE evening Thursday making these Key Lime & Coconut cupcakes with White Chocolate frosting. By the time I finished I had zested and squeezed so many limes I thought the cupcakes were gross. Not to mention, the dang white chocolate siezed up, so I was beginning to become quite bitter with this particualr baked good. But, by the time I tasted one today, I do believe it's the best cupcakes I have ever had, or at least made!
Anyway, we began today's celebration by meeting Conrad downtown for lunch at the North Market for our favorite Pad Thai. Isabelle and I had spent the morning wrapping presents and making birthday cards for Daddy. After lunch, I dropped off a couple of dozen birthday cupcakes I had made at his office...after all, I didn't want several dozen cupcakes hangin' around our kitchen!
When Conrad came home, I had made the Hyderabadi special dish, Lam Biryani for dinner and finished it off with, you guessed it, another cupcake. And He opened his present from my parents (and a little from us) which was a new GPS.
And since I know he's in bed for the evening and won't be lurking on our blog, I can safely tell you that I have a massage scheduled for him in the morning after breakfast...We hope you had a great birthday, Baby! You are the best!
