Let Them Eat Cake!

And eat cake, we did! Birthday cake, that is.

This weekend was The Writer's birthday.  I couldn't risk spoiling any of his surprises by posting them and I wanted photos, so I had to wait to share. The waiting is over!

The fact that I made a cake wasn't too surprising, but what was inside the cake was! It must be the cars, but he's a fan of the black and white checkerboard pattern.  Until this past semester, he carried a checkered Dickies messenger bag.  I saw a checkerboard cake kit online and knew it was perfect for him.  It wasn't the easiest or quickest project, but I think it turned out pretty well.
His next surprise was also the biggest one. I could hardly wait to give him this t-shirt.  Several months ago when we were in Florida, he saw a girl wearing a t-shirt with The Catcher in the Rye cover art on it and almost had a heart attack.  The Writer loves that book and it's cover art.  I accidentally found one online, thanks to StumbleUpon and Out of Print Clothing.  Out of Print Clothing donates a book to Books for Africa for every t-shirt they sell, which is pretty awesome.
 For dinner, I took him to Steak on a Stone, a really unique restaurant a few towns away.  They bring you your steak raw and you cook it yourself on an extremely hot volcanic rock that fits into the plate.  I'm not a steak eater, obviously, but it was definitely a fun experience for a carnivore like him.
Even though it wasn't my birthday, it was still one of the most fun days I've had in a while.  It was so relaxing to spend time together, walk in the park, and just generally enjoy ourselves.
