Happy Birthday Mr. Tennis!

Mr. Tennis (aka The Hubs) had a birthday recently!
So did I, but I prefer not to count my birthdays 
and if I don't celebrate on my actual birthdate,
I don't have to add a year!
Yes, that is how I am actually getting younger every year . . . 
that and botox!!!
[Ha ha - just kidding -- haven't had botox in years!
I do really love it though it's a splurge!]

He requested chocolate cake with 
chocolate frosting for his birthday!
Call me Betty -- I whipped that right up and
made a chocolate ganache frosting -- just
like the Barefoot Contessa and Pioneer Woman make!
My cookbook will be coming out soon -- (working title "Jboo Cooks??")
-- everything in it 
will have some type of chocolate ingredient!

Oooooh -- chocolate on chocolate = perfection!
Yes, well it was almost perfect until I slopped some
chocolate on my white top! 
Boo hoo - sadly that stain didn't come out -
but the ganache was so beautiful and delish, it was worth the sacrifice!

Besides playing tennis (hence the name Mr. Tennis),
he likes to ride his horse and do a bit of
golfing too.
Somewhere he fits in working! :)
While Miss M and I were at the pool recently,
he had some fun golfing.
Am afraid a golf cart may be on his b-day list next year!

Happy Birthday Mr. Tennis!
You're not getting older (yes you are)
you're getting better! :)
Happy Happy Birthday!
