Happy Birthday Shenanigans

Today is the Hubby's birthday.  He didn't really ask for anything [yet] this year.  I think we are still trying to survive the move.  Although he did say he wanted a pair of "slip on type" shoes since you take your shoes off before entering someone's home in China and he's getting weary of tying and un-tying his shoes.  After sending him about 15 links to shoes on Amazon, he asked me to stop.  I was just trying to be helpful!  So, instead I splurged and spent $9.82 on a box of Kellogg's Raisin Bran for him.  He was excited (and then a little shocked when he found out how much it was).  Taobao is amazing!  (I am not adept enough to order on Taobao on my own quite yet, however I have some awesome friends who help me.)  For those of you who do not live in China, Taobao is like Amazon and Ebay rolled into one.  You can order almost anything at competitive prices and have it delivered to your home.  

Tonight, we went out to Papa John's and Dairy Queen.  Quite the treat!  I think this weekend we may plan a hiking excursion up Purple Mountain to commemorate the Hubby turning the big 2-9.  He has simple requests and though I tend to want to throw a party, I can live with simple right now.

This morning the girls on our staff got him a cake complete with a fiery candle.  Seriously - it was crazy (check out the video below).  It did take us a good minute to figure out how to light the candle.  It had this "lighter" that looked more like weird.  And then the candle started playing the birthday song after being lit and continued to play for over 2 hours.  Finally, the Hubby disabled said candle by pulling it apart until he found the battery.  Oh, China!  You never cease to amaze.

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband.  I love you so much and am truly blessed to be your wife!

**I apologize in advance for the first 1:30 of this video not being too exciting...
