How my husband celebrates me getting one year older.....

I'll start out by admitting that my birth date is 2 weeks and 2 days before my husband's - same year, same month, just a little bit earlier. For the next two weeks, I am officially much older than him. Therefore, even if it's only for a short amount of time, I am officially a "cougar". So, in order to keep his older and wiser wife satisfied and interested, my much younger husband went all out in planning my birthday dinner.
Dinner Menu:

Cocktails ~ Fresh from the garden Mint Mojitos
Appetizer: Barbecue shrimp with cucumber


Salad: Fresh Greens with melon and craisins

Main Course:
Lobster grilled with garlic and paprika
Scallops sauteed in white wine
Caribbean Rice with pineapple
Fresh broccoli
And to top it all off ~
Delicious Chocolate Cake with mounds of Chocolate Frosting!!!!

The Result:
A very happy cougar wife.
Yup...I'll keep him!
Cheers to all cougar women who have an energetic younger husband whose sole intent in life is keeping their older, but still sexy :) wife happy!
