Whuh Oh! The Big Three Oh!

Today, my fabulous hubster hit a huge milestone and turned 30! 
If you know Marc, you know that he's pretty low key and he absolutely hates any sort of celebration where he's the center of attention.  I am the opposite (go figure)...which is probably part of the reason that we work so well together =)

So, what do you do for someone who hates having birthday parties and also refuses to provide suggestions for birthday presents?  After much agonizing, I finally figured out the perfect way to celebrate.  Marc's an avid fisherman and grew up fishing in Pennsylvania, and he'd told me he's always wanted to learn how to fly fish.  So, we got a few friends together, headed up to the Treehouse, and got Marc some fly fishing lessons!
Doesn't he look like a pro?  Apparently the fishing was amazing and almost everyone on the trip caught a fish! 
For his birthday dinner, I made him a scrumptious Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake (thanks for the recipe, Martha!).  Marc's only birthday wish every year is for cookie cake, so I wanted to do a fun spin on your traditional variety.  I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who's slightly intrigued at the idea.  It was amazing.
Happy Birthday, Babe!  Can't wait for the next 30 years =)


  1. Aww that looks awesome! Great way to throw a "party" without all the fuss. Jeremy turned 30 this year and it was hard for us to figure out what to do. He wouldn't give suggestions and it was killing me. We ended up just doing dinner and a few gifts, but it was what he wanted. I am such a big celebratory person. I want to celebrate everything, so I know how you feel!

  2. Oh hooray! For Ryan's birthday this weekend I got him an apron...because he had talked about how cool Marc's is!

  3. Happy birthday to Marc! I am so glad he was born 30 years ago and that he is your husband! By the way, cookie cake is like all I talk about for the months leading up to my birthday. Glad that Marc understands how important it is (:
