So, in an attempt to make the day (after) a little more special, Willa and I threw Mike a surprise party last night. No, don't worry, your invitation wasn't lost in the mail. We decided to keep it small.
What kind of birthday party would it be without birthday hats? A boring one for sure, so we made our own.
On the menu: Meat pies. In the 12 years I've known Mike he's told me, many times, about how much he loved the meat pies he ate in Australia when he was a wee little lad. The wonder of Google lead me straight to an 'Australian Meat Pie' recipe and it turned out to be the guest of honor's favorite part of the party. Woo Hoo!
The party was a success! The birthday boy even declared it to be the best birthday ever. Lucky for us, he is pretty easy to please!
