Birthday Presents!

Oh how I love life when I have time to think of good birthday presents for friends and then wrap them. Hooray! One of my intentions for this month was to put together a good present for my friend's birthday party. Well, I went ahead and got a good present for my other friend, too.

The first friend works for a non-profit organization that coordinates farmers' markets and school gardens throughout Houston. I thought she might like this book, written by the folks over at Sunset Magazine:

The One-Block Feast: An Adventure in Food from Yard to Table

My other friend works as an instructional coach and leader at a charter school for economically disadvantaged children. Since he has to juggle a lot, I figured I would get him one of the books that revolutionized my approach to time management and organization:

Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity

Sadly, we had to miss his birthday party because it was at a bar and we couldn't bring Henry (Matt actually called to check). It was at the 4-week mark, so we hadn't yet figured out the baby sitting and pumping situation. (As a side note, we've started a mini-baby-sitting co-op with our friends; we'll take turns watching each other's babies while the other couple goes on a date night.)

We wanted to make it up to our friend by having another celebration in his honor, so we created a list of options for him to choose from. So fun!
