We celebrated Chad’s xxth birthday earlier this month, but with the craziness of that week (and the weeks that followed), I haven’t gotten around to posting anything online about it.
Now, I know he’d potentially freak out if I get all mushy-cheesy and describe his every silly, loveable trait in my blog, so let me just tell you Chad’s favorite beverage/legal addiction: Coffee.
He loves coffee chains (I detest them, but would be willing to go for the mugs, the water, juice, and his company). He gets cranky without a cup to get him going (a valuable advice I readily give to his colleagues).
I think that his coworkers (and audience in a convention) took this information to heart (and a whole new level) when they decided to give him a huge set of coffee items.
The UCC set came with a gift box containing sachets ranging from milk tea to café au lait. The three signature instant coffee jars ranged from the mild 114 (which I highly recommend) to the bold 118. It even came with cute little cups of single-serve cream.
His colleagues gave him a fragrant bag of Toby’s Estate coffee beans (which will need grounding and me getting out the coffee machine). I’m a big fan of Toby’s Estate beans, and I’m so happy I could make cups for us to enjoy at home (without having to contend with the crowd in their cafés… Introvert alert). There’s something about their coffee that’s unique, chocolatey, smooth, and creamy. Don’t let me spoil it for you, though… Visit their stores and their baristas can tell you all about it. 😉
So, to my phenomenal husband, best friend, occasionally cranky, silly, loveable bear, happy birthday! I am looking forward to an eternity of adventures, misadventures, and endless cups of coffee with you. I love you!
