50th Birthday


We celebrated my hubby's 50th birthday this week.  He isn't much into parties and stuff, but I did feel the need to make some decorations!  My Mom is in town for a visit, so we just went out for a nice supper and some wine.  Hubby loved the decorations and his presents.  We were very glad to celebrate his 50th birthday -- he had a stroke last year and almost didn't make his 49th.  No worries though, he is doing fantastic and was very lucky to not have any lasting bad effects from the stroke.  He needed to change his lifestyle and his work habits more than anything as high blood pressure and hypertension were the demons he was battling.  While in the hospital, we found out he had sleep apnea (which is a major contributor to high blood pressure), so he had a sleep study done and now uses a machine to help him breathe properly at night.  It's not as loud as I thought it would be, it's actually quite quiet.  Our Pug, Emma, snores louder than the machine! (Yep, she sleeps in the middle!)  I'm quite used to it now, kind of like bunking with Darth Vader.
Happy Birthday, Honeybear!
Oh, the flowers are from the 3d Fall Flowers collection at and the grapes and happy birthday are from the Silhouette Online Store.
