Chuy turned 11 years old a little over a month ago on June 22nd, 2020. His birthday just so happened to fall on the date we closed on our new home. It was also the same day that I had my 20 week anatomy ultrasound. In case you didn’t know, there’s been a lot of changes going on in our family!
We are due with our second child in late October/early November. We also just moved into a new house after being in our first home for a little over 9 years. So. Many. Changes. Good changes but still a lot, nonetheless.
Even though things were absolutely crazy on Chuy’s birthday, we still celebrated! I don’t ever take it for granted to celebrate another year with Chuy. He is my everything. I can’t put into words how blessed I am to celebrate 11 years with our little Chuy.
Since things were so nuts on his actual birthday, we celebrated with cake the following day. We had barely moved in, were still sleeping on an air mattress, and had NO furniture or silverware in our home yet!
The past few years, I’ve had Chuy’s cake delivered from a local bakery in Virginia Beached called My Best Friends Cupcakes.
The delivery is everything especially when the weather is SO hot…Plus, trying to go out and about with a 3 year old, a dog, and a pregnant lady is ummm challenging to say the least! LOL!!!
So, I didn’t tell you yet but our new home has an in-ground saltwater pool! My husband and I have always dreamed about having a pool one day. Since we didn’t have any furniture in the house, we gave Chuy his cake poolside on the diving board.
Chuy didn’t seem to mind as long as he got to eat cake!
Happy 11th Birthday, Chuy. We are so blessed to spend another “irresistible” year together!
