Last week Mickey turned the big 3-5! I had the day all planned out in my head in order to make it special for the man I love. That was mistake #1. Everytime I have it all planned out something always goes wrong!
Anyway, the girls and I woke up a little early and headed into the kitchen to make one of Mickey's favorite breakfast treats: Monkey Bread. I had found a recipe for Monkey Bread Muffins on Pinterest and the girls and I got to work. All was going well until.... the house filled with smoke b/c the brown sugar liquid was running all in the bottom of the oven. Instead of just taking the muffins out and calling it a wash I decided that maybe it would stop so I let them continue to cook. (Have I said before that I do not always make the best decisions in the kitchen?!?)
Needless to say, we had to open all the doors and windows and probably woke up the rest of the neighborhood when the fire alarm started going off! This was the first time this has happened in our new home so we didn't really know how to get it off. All I can say is thank goodness Mickey was home or it might still be going off! haha After that, the girls and I retreated to the back porch and decided breakfast would consist of our usual....Bojangles!
After church we headed to Mickey's race to continue the birthday celebration! Mickey loves racing his 4-wheeler and we do not always go, but it was his day so we joined him at the track. It was rainy and very muddy, but it always makes me happy when I get to spend time with Mickey doing something he loves.
He had a great start and actually took the hole shot, but shortly after that he flipped off when he ran into a tree! (Hence the title of this post, He Survived the Big 3-5!) Being the tough man he is, he brought the 4-wheeler back to the truck, made a few adjustment, and continued the race. Thank goodness all that was injured was his wrist and maybe a little bit of his ego! LOL
Following the race, we had an impromptu family party at our house complete with cake, ice cream and presents!
All in all it was a great day because we were able to spend it with those we love most! I'm so blessed to have this man in my life. He loves us unconditionally and we love him with all of our hearts! Happy Birthday, Mickey! Here's to many more....
