The Best Birthday Card Ever {Video}

by Jenn (eating bender) on June 4, 2011

Happy weekend! Hope yours is off to a fun start.

Bobby is currently taking the Level II CFA exam, an event he has been preparing for diligently since February. I have no doubt that we will rock the test but if you could send some good luck vibes his way, I’m sure he would be very appreciative. :)

We’ll be celebrating with a delicious meal and, as I’m sure you could probably guess, a hearty bottle of wine once he is finished for the day. Until then, I wanted to share a video I’ve been meaning to post since my birthday, otherwise known as the best card ever (I may be biased).

Bobby went through three years of content on my blog to put together a photo slideshow of our lives. Yes, I was dumbfounded when I watched. I was incredibly impressed that he read every post, downloaded hundreds of pictures and put them all together. He’s a keeper!

The video is quite long, but it definitely serves as a time capsule of where this blog — and its writer — have been. There were events and photos that I didn’t even remember taking!

If you’re interested, you can check it out below. Minute 8:00 is particularly creative!

Kudos to my amazing husband. It truly was the best birthday card ever!

Hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable Saturday! What are your plans this weekend?

Happy (Belated) Birthday! I love the video your husband made… so sweet! It was great seeing at the NRA show a few weekends ago. Let’s touchbase soon!

Aww that video is so sweet and funny! It really is those thoughtful time consuming gifts that are the best.

And my brother is taking the CFA today also for the second time. It’s a KILLER test so I’m totally sending good vibes your way!

Ooh! Good luck to your brother, too! After following along with the studying for the past 4+ months I agree — it’s killer. Especially all those formulas!

oh my gosh, how cute is he? I love how he even captured the “little things” like the little spoons, special baked goods, coffee cocoa (duh!) etc. And of course I love the family pictures, the big moments (gosh, I remember reading about your engagement, your wedding, the honeymoon (and the accident!)changing jobs). Too too cute! Love it! Wishing him the best of luck today ! And hope y’all celebrate it UP tonight! For me, this weekend=frozen yogurt, body step, pool time, date with the man, brunch with friends, little work around the house :)

Wow Bobby has talent :) I love the video, its super cute. My very favorite part about blogging is being able to go back and read through the archives and re-live great memories! You have definitely had a lot of great ones the past few years :)

Aww what a sweetie. I hope I get to meet Bobby sometime soon!!! He seems like such a great guy, and what a good match for you. He must be SO incredibly proud of you and all of your amazing accomplishments!!
