Domesticated Love

It has been quite a busy week!
But I must say, we've thoroughly enjoyed it!
Let me back track and tell you about Matt's birthday....
First, Matt is super easy to please, and despite my offer to bake him any dessert he wanted, he insisted that the only birthday dessert he wanted was a store bought cookie cake. {Not sure if that's a bad reflection on my cooking??} Easy enough.  So off to the store I went, and found him {what I initially thought was} a lovely cookie cake! Well I paid for the cake and hadn't take two steps out the door when the cake fell off of the cart and smashed the icing around the edges! Boooooooooo!!!!! I felt super bad, but was hoping that I could repair it enough that the smeared icing wouldn't be too noticeable. And that's when I discovered that the balloons on his cake {pictured below. Notice the sad icing on the sides!}....


...looked a lot like these guys......


{Those are sperm, in case you missed the correlation.}

Yes folks, I had bought him a {smashed} sperm cake. Lovely.
I had also attempted to bake him some blueberry muffins that ended up a little more burned than what most people like. Another lovely.
Have I mentioned that I'm superrrrrr domestic?? I'm such a good wife. {Cough, cough. Sarcasm} 
I was having flash-backs of our first Christmas together. But just like then, Matt was so sweet and never made me feel bad about any of these silly mistakes. I really lucked out with him.

Not only was it my husband's birthday this week, but another very important holiday {one of my very favorites}, Cinco de Mayo!!! I love this holiday for the mere fact that it's another excuse to eat Mexican food. I'm not really even sure what else we're supposed to be celebrating {Mexico, maybe??}, but I'm just glad it involves eating good food! And that we did. We had a delicious meal on the river and ended the night by watching "The Avengers" {which, by the way, was the BEST movie we've seen in a very long time. I totally recommend it!!!}.

And I know Sunday is technically supposed to be the first day of the week, but I've always thought of it as the last day. With that being said, we ended our week by going to an awesome marriage conference that was sponsored by our church!


Matt and I are committed to not only having a marriage that outlasts all of life's ups and downs, but having a great and passionate marriage that outlasts all of life's ups and downs! No matter what stage of life you are in with your marriage, marriage conferences are always a good reminder of how to encourage your spouse and create an awesome foundation for your relationship. {I'll be recapping on some of the things they talked about in future posts!}

Sorry for the long recap! 
How has your week been?!
