Happy Birthday: The Viking

Today is The Viking's birthday!
Or, tomorrow, depending on what day you're reading this.  It's January 22nd.

He will enjoy one of our favorite recipes; Rachel Ray's Super Shrimp Scampi with pasta.
You can find the recipe here.  It's all done in one pot.  So quick, easy, and yum!

We will be celebrating with an ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery.
...and, oh, how I love me some Cold Stone...
I invited friends and family over to enjoy the cake.

Happy Birthday, Viking!


  1. Shrimp Scampi with pasta, yum.... the Viking is a lucky man.

  2. Happy early birthday and that dish sounds delish!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

    1. Oh, it's sooo yummy!!! You should try it. Super easy and all cooked in one pot. You boil the pasta in the scampi sauce. The best part about it...less dishes to clean when you're done! haha

  3. Looks like one happy grandpa too. Hope he has a happy birthday.

    1. He definitely is! He idolizes her. It's great. He's also one of the few people she calls by name. Her name vocab is limited to mommy, dada, isaiah (difficult one AND said before mommy lol), and nono for grandpa in Italian. :)

  4. Happy birthday!

    Ice cream cakes are the best, but I'm happy to just have ice cream. I got my boyfriend a Spider-Man ice cream cake for his birthday and he got me as much ice cream as I could eat for mine. :)

  11. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) If you want to stop your divorce.
    (10 If you want to divorce your husband.
    (11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
