Hubs had a friend that turned the big 4-0 back in February so, to commemorate this joyous milestone, a small group of friends took a little weekend get away to a cabin in North Georgia.
This is the back of said cabin...not sure why we failed to take one of the front?
Oh, wait! I know!
Because the Birthday Boy commandeered my camera and had a fun little photo shoot with some of the other boys.
Here's a little snippet of what I found when I downloaded my pics....
In reality though, it was the mack-daddy of all cabins. There was no 'roughing it' in this castle!
Just check out our dining room! This called for a SPECIAL birthday dinner!
The girls baked a homemade, from scratch, birthday cake!
And everyone had their own dish to prepare.
Twice baked potatoes...
Fillets grilled to perfection...
And me? Well, someone had to document THIS!
I present to you....
Waist up formal.
(We were at a cabin in the middle of nowhere after all! Lets not get too crazy!)
Bow ties. Check!
Snazzy tops with pajama bottoms. Check!
My favorite knee-high house shoes? Duh, of course!
We rocked the waist up formal like no body's business!
The birthday boy even broke out his wedding vest and jacket for the special occasion.
This could go down as one of our best ideas ever!
It was time for the cake.
This was Vickie's famous recipe so we had to conference her in on the singing of Happy Birthday and ultimate cake presentation.
To which the birthday boy (who is now dead to me) replied,
"It looks like it was made by a bunch of girls that don't cook much....
...but it tastes good!"
