Bleu's Birthday Pie

We just celebrated Bleu's Birthday (3-21-76) with a week long celebration. Birthday's are a big deal around here.  Bleu asked me to marry him on my Birthday, so I had a lot to live up to!  We started the week out with a present...I made a photo book on chronicles our engagement, engagement pics and honeymoon.  It's the first time I've done one, it turned out great!  I'm a big fan now.  Then about mid-week, Bleu requested a "birthday pie", a homemade apple pie, to be exact. Now, I'm no stranger to cooking, but as I'm asking Bleu to put in his request, I'm mentally rolling through the rolodex of my specialities and apple pie was not one of them!  I've never made one before.  But whatever my husband wants for his birthday, I'll do my best to make it happen.  So, I enthusiastically agreed to take on the challenge. Voila!...homemade apple pie.  

It turned out pretty yummy if I do say so myself.  But, no birthday pie is complete without birthday candles...Bleu was pretty excited about his pie, hehe.

On Friday, Bleu had a day off.  We had a big birthday breakfast (I'm starting to see a common theme here, my husband does love to eat :-)  We've had awesome weather this week in Dallas so we took advantage and went to the driving range with our friends Sean and Jenny Steen, and then hung out on a patio soaking up the sun!  That evening we enjoyed a dinner at Bleu's favorite restaurant, III Forks.  

As far as a birthday present goes....Bleu asked for an IPOD.  Now, me being the over-analytical shopper that I am, I started to compare the IPOD touch to the IPHONE, the phone does everything the touch does, and it's $30 CHEAPER.  I was all set to make my case to Bleu on why he needed the phone.  My plan was to take him to the Apple Store, show him the phone side-by-side to the touch, and tell him all the reasons he need the IPHONE.  First and foremost, it's the 21st Century, secondly, he can get email, etc., and keep in touch with his friends, and blah, blah, blah.  So, we walk into the store, and I'm all ready to give him my spill, he takes one look at the IPHONE and says "I want it".  Yes people, our Bleu has made leaps and bounds.  He now has a blog, AND he's about to have an IPHONE.  I'm so proud of him! 

As excited as he is about getting an IPHONE, he's was even MORE excited to get 3 envelopes in the mail from his nephews Jaidan, Jagger and Jette!  The boys had all drawn their own birthday cards.  These were his favorite gifts of all!





  1. The real purpose of Apple pie is a place to put your Blue Bell Ice Cream. I note that you realized this.
    Good looking Pie.

  2. I love Jaidan's picture of Monkeyman...
