Quarter of a century years old...

So yesterday Trevor turned 25... yup 25! That is a quarter of century years old! It was a pretty low key celebration. Just me and him. He came home from work with a birthday bag present the office gave him. How sweet is that? They got him ice cream and everything and this little bag full of some fun stuff that brought us back to childhood, such as ring pops etc. There were even some bubbles Trevor felt the need to start blowing in the kitchen :) Anyways, I spent ALL afternoon making Trevor a Hamburger Birthday Cake (idea from the mini ones on Bakerella). I guess the proper title would be a Cheeseburger Cake seeing there was cheese on it. Anywhooo, I had some minor bumps along the way (note this is my first time making a really creative cake) But all in all I think it turned out good! Trevor was totally surprised he had no idea. I have had better tasting cake but for show, this one takes the cake (no pun intended haha)
We went out to dinner at the Red Iguana, a pretty good Mexican place they have here in Salt Lake. I have actually seen it featured on the food network and some other cooking shows. I mean it is way good, but in terms of the best? I mean I grew up in San Diego so I could just be a tough crowd. But it was delish non the less, and I couldn't get over how adorable our place settings were! I loved the fresh flowers. After stuffing our faces with some good spice and beans we came home to open presents :) Trevor gave me NO suggestions for gifts but I think I did good. He was VERY surprised.... See every time we are at the mall and are waiting for a movie time or just looking around Trevor wants to go to the book store. He always goes and grabs a Calvin and Hobbes book. I have noticed this but I looked and he doesn't have any. So I bought him to big books of Calvin and Hobbes. I could tell in his face he was surprised I thought of it. He even said, "I can't believe I have never thought to get some before!" As a gag gift.... PG 13 warning here guys... I also got him a book called "What is your poo telling you?" haha, now before you get grossed out, it is one of those fun bathroom books but it really actually has all the facts about your health through your poo, it is really quite interesting and at parts hilarious. That is if you like poo jokes. Anyways, I knew Trevor would get a kick out of it. After Presents I experienced something weird. I have never sang Happy Birthday to someone ALONE before. That was a first. It was a little awkward, but cute. We then ate some burger cake and watched Trevor's favorite show Arrested Development. It was a short and sweet simple date and birthday. Best part of the night was seeing Trevor go to bed early to read his books I got him. Lets me know he really liked his gift...which of course is always the worry when it comes to buying boys gifts, right?
 So I was really proud of myself after making this, thank you. I was tired and had so much food dye on my hands I had to take a shower.

Love the fresh flowers, adorable table setting.

PG13 Below... beware if easily offended.

Trevor excited to blow his bubbles.

Acting like a 7 year old as I sing him Happy Birthday.

Trevor asked me NOT to put 25 candles on the cake.
Since it is his birthday, I obliged.
