The even better idea? Having him read them out loud to his children. The laughter and tears! Everyone needs a book like this! Seriously. If you are trying to come up with something for someone who doesn't need another thing- or someone that could use a boost? This is the gift!
It was such a fantastic show! So much fun to have something to look forward to and keep celebrating Jay's birthday a month later.
Well for his 41st birthday I couldn't really top a book and Ben Folds. But I did surprise him with something he had wanted for a long time.
Besides the cake I took him out for an afternoon of olive oil and vinegar tasting in Edmond. There is this great store Teaoli, that lets you sample, and sample and sample to your hearts delight.
The gal that helped us was awesome at paring the vinegars and olive oils. Flavors that I never would have thought of. Like fig vinegar and butter olive oil together.
Favorite olive oils were butter, tuscan herb, garlic & Herb De Provence.
We ended up picking out Butter & Tuscan olive oils and Fig Balsamic vinegar.
So not a night out with Ben Folds but a great way to spend your 41st birthday on a rainy Saturday!
