Thor’s Ultimate Birthday Surprise and Easter Takeover!
As some of you may know, last Friday was my birthday. Okay, okay, I promise, this is the last time I’m going to mention it! Even I’m getting tired of hearing about it. 🙂
Well, something kind of cool happened that I’ve been waiting to tell you about ~ Thor finally visited me! My super fabulous friend, Debra Kristi had this crazy idea back in the summer to send Thor on a world tour and I immediately said YES! Thor’s been to England, Canada, all around the US, and now he stopped at my house. Just in time for my birthday. How special. You can catch up with Thor and his wily adventures on Debra’s blog here, or you can check out the pictures of him on Pinterest here. It’s been a fun romp, so be sure to check back often because you never know where he’ll end up next!
So, what did Thor and I do all weekend? Oh, my. What didn’t we do? First up, Thor surprised me at my favorite restaurant. We were enjoying a nice dinner out when there he was, demanding to be fed. This wasn’t nearly enough to satisfy him
He went on to devour half of my meal and most of my dessert. Thankfully, he didn’t blow out my birthday candle. Which left me to make my wish. I can’t tell, but I’m sure you all know what it was.
The next morning Thor got us up bright and early to work out because, as he said, we needed to work off that cake. (Technically it was bread pudding, but I wasn’t going to argue. That hammer packs a punch. If you know what I mean!)
After a tough workout that rivaled Nicole’s (she would be so proud!), we had breakfast with an old friend of Thor’s ~ Queen Elizabeth. Tea, toast, and protein drink. No time for finger sandwiches or scones for us, we were off to the beach. Thor wanted to learn to surf. Too bad the locals got in his way.
Along came a giant to help poor Thor untangle himself from the fray.
Needless to say, Thor wasn’t much interested in surfing anymore. Except atop my car. We took Thor home and gave him a nice, hot shower. Then it was time to decorate eggs. Seems Thor never heard of Easter or egg decorating and wanted to do everything. First, though, I had to get him to stop flirting with all my Barbies! You’d think after the disaster that happened at Kristy K. James‘ place he would’ve taken one look at those women and ran, but not Thor.
You should’ve seen his big head after chatting up the ladies. I managed to snap this quick pic, shhh, don’t tell him.
We almost had to poke him with a pin just to get it back down to size. It sure was fun to make it bobble about, though. 🙂
Once he got himself straightened out, he was a great help! He supervised the making of cupcakes, decorating of eggs, and later the cupcakes, but there was a slight issue with Thor and the frosting. Our favorite Norse God likes the sweet stuff a little too much. Who knew!
Later that night Thor joined my husband and me for a second birthday dinner out with the in-laws where he learned to appreciate the finer points of Mexican cuisine. With no ale in sight, he settled for a margarita. Two, actually, but since he wasn’t driving we let him live a little. We did have to take the chips away. Dang, but he can eat like a teenage boy!
The next morning Thor was thrilled to find an Easter basket just for him filled with all kinds of chocolates. Because that’s just what he needed after all that frosting from the day before.
Before we knew it, Thor declared he was tired of us and searched my home for some new minions, of which I thought I had plenty, but he found them all lacking. And so, hopped up on sugar, I bid my sweet Thor farewell and sent him on to his next destination. What an amazing weekend we had with him! I hope he finds what he’s looking for ~ somewhere.
It’s been five days and the Barbies are still asking when that handsome blond will be back… oh my.
