The first little surprise was a mirror filled with post-it notes. Each sticky note had attributes about Matt that I admire and some funny little inside jokes. I did it the night before his birthday after he went to bed so when he got up for work he would see it right away.
We made plans to meet up for lunch during his lunch break and when I picked him up I had a yummy pork burrito from Cafe Rio since he always wants to go there. I also made sure to get him tres leches cake with lots of strawberries and whipped cream since it is his absolute fav treat! He took an extra long lunch break and we ate at a park underneath some shade.
After lunch, I went home to prep for the birthday festivities that night. I made a banner, blew up some balloons, and wrapped his gift. Then, I made him a red velvet cake and attempted to frost it with an ombre effect...let's just say I'm still working on it. To dress up his cake even more I did some bunting with the leftover scrapbook paper I used to make his banner. Overall, for it being my first cake I think it turned out pretty well!

Now, not to toot my own horn but I was pretty pleased with how everything turned out! I had been planning everything out all week long so when it came to his actual birthday I was so nervous that something would go wrong, but luckily everything was perfect! I think the main reason I went all out is because I wanted to show Matt how much I really love him. He does so many nice things for me and always does what I want to do so I wanted to do all of his favorite things for a change. I love you so much Matty and I hope you had the best birthday ever! He actually told me that it was his best birthday yet and that having a wife made it so much more fun but don't tell him I told you guys. This is just the first birthday of so many more to come and I can't wait to celebrate all the rest with you!
