Monday was Nick's birthday.
The problem with that is that Nick's birthday was on Tuesday (in my summer mind).
I don't pay attention to days and dates in summer.
All I know is that his birthday is on the 25th, and Tuesday was the 25th. I am sure of it. I checked the calendar at the beginning of July, and that is what it said. So, it was quite a shock to me when Sunday rolled around and I discovered the truth about what day the 25th really was.
So, I scrounged up a last minute plan Monday morning when I woke up extra early fretting over my dilemma so Nick wouldn't figure out my mistake. Unfortunately, I made the faux pas of suggesting we see Harry Potter that night, and Nick saw right through me. At that moment, he kind of figured out that I was flying by the seat of my pants.
Yeah, he's not that into Harry Potter....I should have known better.
So, after apologizing in the alleyway next to the restaurant, I took Nick to Cafe Mimosa in San Clemente.
|His "You seriously thought I would want to see Harry Potter" face.|
My lack of calendar awareness also kept me from buying Nick a birthday present on time. This was a huge disappointment.....for me. For Nick, not so much. I pride myself on my gift giving giftedness, and it really bothered me that I didn't have something for him. But, as we walked the shops in San Clemente, Nick found the HAT OF HIS DREAMS. I couldn't have bought him a present this good even with all of my gift buying talent. (I am still buying him a gift though, and it will be a gooooooood one.)
Then we went to the beach with his new hat.
(And my new sunglasses.)
Nick is a proud Californian. Hence, the hat.
Then we had dinner on the deck.....and mojitos.....mmmm.
So see, I didn't do too bad for not planning.
