It is John’s birthday! For Birthday Breakfast, I brought home Dunkin Donuts AND Starbucks because I am a devoted wife, and also because I can easily pass by both places on my way home from running, but definitely more because I am a devoted wife.
Dunkin Donuts has renamed all of their donuts for Halloween, and I am totally here for that. I got the Wicked Chocolate for John and the Boston Scream for me. I was tempted by the Ghoulish Glazed, but I saved my extra sweet calories for my ridiculous Starbucks coffee. John also went ridiculous for coffee today – I got him a white chocolate frappucino, which was made even more of a milkshake than usual because I think they forgot to put any coffee in it. Milkshakes and donuts for Birthday Breakfast!
Birthday lunch was brilliant blissful buttery birthday banana bread, although that was a near no-show last night. I got all the ingredients out, realized I didn’t have brown sugar, threw a tantrum inside my head because I REALLY didn’t want to go to the store for the 39th time this week, and figured out that we barely had enough normal sugar to make it work as long as we didn’t need it for tea or coffee today AND (pause while I breathe) I knew we wouldn’t need it because I had the Birthday Breakfast plans all figured out.
Dinner tonight is still TBD, since John is still working, but we’re thinking some Italian place in Federal Hill. Or, if he works too much later, we’ll abandon the silly idea of going outside (which, let’s face it, is crazy talk), order in something delicious and stupid, and try again tomorrow night. WE’LL SEE.
