Birthday Fun

Ryan's Birthday_9
Make a wish! Birthday cake complete with trucker hat party favors. 

We recently celebrated the 33rd birthday of my friend Ryanwith his wife Ari and their beautiful daughter Adi. Ryan and Ari are high school sweethearts and I met them back in college when I was 19. My boyfriend at the time was in the same fraternity as Ryan and, while that relationship is long since over, I always thought one of the perks from it was getting to know these two.

As always, Ari put together a lovely little spread (complete with large tissue paper pom-poms). She is a trained chef and always makes the most delicious food.

It was somewhat of an Octoberfest theme, with Bratwurst and all the fixings. But, the difference between Ari's fixings and mine is hers are ridiculously awesome and look like they come from a magazine.

If you ever see this wine, buy it and drink it. It was one of the smoothest red wines I have ever had.

German Chocolate Cake. Uhm...OKAY.

And peanut butter sandwiches for "the kiddos."

Speaking of kiddos, I give you a little photo montage that I call:
