We celebrated Chuck's birthday today, even though his birthday isn't until Wednesday, February 6th.
On Friday I got off work and Beth and I headed out for a day of running errands.
Went to the bank to get cash so Chuck wouldn't know where we were spending money.
Went to Costco and Best Buy looking for just the right gift.
Stopped at UPS to ship a package to Diana, then walked over to Safeway to get a few groceries.
Drove to Shari's Restaurant to buy a lemon meringue pie. Chuck's favorite!
Came home, started dinner and wrapped his gift. Sharaya, Beth and I all went in together for one large gift
this year and I tried to get creative while wrapping it! I was hoping to
camouflage it a little. :)
Today we met Sharaya and Allie at Outback. Chuck's been in the mood for steak and lobster, something we only have on special occasions so he decided on Outback. He said it was very good!
Then we came back to the house for gifts and dessert. (I always get cupcakes for Allie and me because we aren't big fans of the pie.)
Then Sharaya helped me bring up the gift.
We got him a sound board for the new TV. He was pretty impressed and immediately began to set it up. After he got it running we talked about how we need to watch an epic movie to really hear the sound. I mentioned Les Miserables and he said Star Wars. I went out to the kitchen to fix the pie and cupcakes and when I came back to the living room, he had found this on TV:
It was perfect! And the sound board works great! What a difference it makes! Happy Birthday Chuck!
