Happy Birthday To My Very Much Alive Husband!

Aaron's Caring Bridge Update

Today is his birthday! 33 years of awesomeness... and to think he almost didn't make this one! Last night, we met up with friends at Ruth's Chris, most of whom are wounded EOD techs and their family members. Throw in a few great friends and you have yourself a party! One good friend ordered the appetizers, I made sure everyone had a glass of champagne, and we all ordered steaks. We were ready to enjoy our damn good meals! And we did. We were ready to pay for them too, but some anonymous angel called the restaurant and picked up the whole tab. Crazy! Speaking of crazy, I pretty much bought Aaron everything for his birthday. He wanted a 7-day set of straight razors so I bought him three pretty ones. I got him a Soda Stream and Lincoln Logs. The list goes on. How many "you're not dead" birthdays does a man get? Hopefully one's enough! One is too many but I'll take any reason to celebrate his living, breathing, amazing, sexy body! So I went all out. His mom arrives later today and we're meeting family out for dinner tonight.

Tomorrow he has his HO surgery. We're all nervous and hoping that everything goes as planned, and by July he can be walking. Dear God. Please. This has got to be a game-changer. We're ready!

Have great weekends, everyone!


  1. Happy Birthday Aaron! That is so sweet that someone picked up the whole tab :)

  5. Happy birthday to your hubby--good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you both!

  6. Happy belated birthday to Aaron, and I hope the surgery went well! I hope you celebrate many more birthdays together. It warms my heart amid all the crap that someone picked up your tab. There is still good in the world.
