I got Noah lots of goodies for this big birthday (after all he is half way to 50)!
The Blackberry "Tour"
I don't know anything about technology. But you know boys, if it's a new gadget, it's cool! He was definitely the envy of the male attendees! I have to give some credit to "Glen" from Verizon. Not only did he push Noah's upgrade up 4 months, he helped me set up his phone an hour before his birthday party so it was all ready for him. I wrapped the phone and called it right after he blew out his candles! No one knew where the ringing was coming from! It was a great surprise.
Our Wedding Book (my favorite gift!)
I used this amazing website called MyPublisher to create a book of photos, invites and letters from our engagement through our wedding. I love it! I would definitely recommend checking out this site. I call it my "scrapless scrapbook" because I scanned our invitations and letters from our friends and family into the book. It is so easy! Here is mine if you want to check it out: A MyPublisher PhotoBook created by Meredith Greenbaum.
1 box Macaroni (1 pound)
1 T Vegetable oil
1/2 cup + 1 T butter
1/2 cup each of shredded Muenster, mild cheddar, sharp cheddar, Monterrey Jack
1 pint half-and-half
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 pound Velveeta, cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 1/2 quart baking dish, cook macaroni for 7 minutes, drain and return to pot, melt butter in saucepan and pour over mac, add 1.5 cups shredded cheeses, half-and-half, Velveeta, eggs, salt and pepper. Spoon into baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until bubbly (about 35 minutes).
Noah and I got this as a wedding present from one of his best friends. I have to admit when we received it, I could think of a million things we needed more. However, it is actually really cool and everyone loved it! Thank you Williams-Sonoma!
