sometimes you gotta improvise

Today is Dan’s 31st birthday. We had plans to meet after work for dinner at the restaurant of his choice. Of course, there was a major snafu in the plans when Dan had to work a little later than normal and a tanker truck spilled some kind of substance on the highway, leading to house and business evacuations and major traffic issues… so I would have been waiting with a 3-year-old at the restaurant for over an hour, waiting for him. Both of us hungry and tired. Not a good idea.

So instead, Maggie and I went to Moe’s for some quesadillas and chips while he made his way home, and we brought a quesadilla for the birthday boy.

Then we stuck a candle in it and sang happy birthday.

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

(He doesn’t really like cake or sweets- WEIRDO- so this worked just fine.)

Happy birthday, Husband Of Mine. Welcome to the Other Side Of Thirty!


  1. She looks just like him.

  2. I was going to say the same thing as C: Maggie takes so much after her Daddy!
    Love the candle in the quesadilla.
    Happy birthday Dan!

  5. Sounds like you made the best of it. Happy Birthday, Dan! (I love quesadillas and am only so-so on the sweets, though I do like ice cream.)

    I love shots where the kids are in the middle of blowing out a candle. So cute!

    It seems he will never lack for help blowing out the candles. : )
