A Quarter Century!

Just a quick post to celebrate my husband's 25th Birthday! Not too big of a celebration since it was just the two of us but it was still a great day. We previously celebrated his birthday last weekend with my parents and sister at TAPS for an Octoberfest beer dinner which was amazing.

For his birthday dinner we decided to head to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch game 2 of the NLDS since Pat loves the place. We got to watch the Phillies on the big screen while enjoying great beer and wings. They gave us a scare the first half of the game but came back for a great win!

Wearing our Phillies gear!!

His birthday cake was delicious, but I wish I had time to hand make the cake itself instead of using a box. He wanted red velvet cake and I didn't want to hassle the food coloring so I bought a box instead. To make up for it I made the frosting from scratch and it turned out great! It was a cream cheese whipped cream frosting and it went perfect with the cake. To be honest, I wanted to just eat the frosting; the cake was more of an accompaniment to the deliciousness of the frosting. Hopefully next year I will have a great recipe for the cake as well so I don't have to use a box.

His birthday cake with 24 regular candles and a baseball glove on top of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for the 25th!

So many candles!!! What an old man =)

Bon App├ętit!
