My Love turns another year toward the midlife zone today.
I have found there is no greater way to honor your man than to do so
in front of his peers. Now I'm ashamedly a 'last minute' person.
So last night before drifting off to sleep I was frantically thinking
about what I could take for a treat to his work place.
I knew I didn't have time to make anything...
so I settled upon buying an assortment of pickles and olives.
My Love does not have a sweet tooth - but dill pickles? Oh my!
Before I left home I grabbed several containers and manly
napkins - hoping something would work to corral
whatever I would find at the store.
I also made some quick pennant signs; attaching them to skewers...
A stop at the store supplied my 'treat'. I'm tellin' ya -
I was quick... and didn't worry too much about cost.
I spent about $35. Not sure if that's my usual 'thrifty' or not -
but it could have been much worse. The most
expensive item I picked up were the garlic stuffed olives.
I snuck into the lunch room and set everything up.
The bread pan worked great! Hopefully his
coworkers will wish him a 'Happy Birthday'
throughout the day and he'll come home a happy man.
(Now I still have to wrap his presents for tonight - and I begin work in 7 minutes... Ahh!!)
