Mr Nikki’s birthday is this coming Tuesday. I spent some time wracking my brain about what to get him. This being the first birthday where I’m not working, I feel silly buying him anything. I mean, I still think of it as buying him something with his own money, know what I mean? I’ve gotten over the whole his/our money thing for the most part, but I’m still stuck on this birthday thing.
Luckily, he’s a giant sap. A giant sap who has a favorite superhero (The Green Lantern, of course, because Mr Nikki is OBSESSED with the color green.)
So I thought, why not MAKE everything for him? Well, except for the cupcakes that I’ll be ordering, that is.
As far as he knows, we still haven’t gone through our wedding photos. *I* have, and I managed to find time to get a wedding photo album organized and sent off to Blurb for printing. I’ve also made him a birthday card – I grabbed an image of The Green Lantern online & put Mr Nikki’s head on him. The theme is that, with all he’s done & accomplished the past couple months, he’s our superhero.
Lastly, I had this photo, from our wedding day on the beach, printed out in wallet sizes & 8×10 for framing and, being the sap that he is, I’ll bet you it makes him all teary-eyed & he declares it the best birthday present ever.
