Yea, Yea, Happy Birthday, Now Cook Me Something!

This past weekend The Hubs celebrated his birthday. So in the spirit of getting the most out of his birthday we celebrated the whole weekend.
On Friday we celebrated as a couple. No not like that, get your minds out of the gutter, folks. We went out to eat just the two of us. We left the kids at home since Hannah is 9 and full capable of taking care of her siblings. I KID! We now have a great babysitter. It's hard to find a babysitter we can trust, we are pretty overprotective. But a fellow soldier that The Hubs works with has a daughter who is a senior in High School and she is responsible, and great with the kids. WE ARE SO EXCITED!
So we hit up a Japanese place that boasts that it's the "Best Show in Town" and they did not disappoint. Granted we went out without the kids, then got seated at a grill with 2 couples who brought their screamers. But it was a great time. And the food was deeelish!!!
Then we did some goofy shopping, and almost got another cat, but then decided Calvin wouldn't appreciate it.
Saturday we did the unthinkable: we upgraded our Sams Card. And why? So we can shop a whole hour earlier than usual, duh! Then we loaded the truck down with our spoils and went home.
Lots of meat and veggies. I had a plan! For his birthday The Hubs got lots of grilling stuff and spices and everything he could ever need to continue to grill on demand. And he did not disappoint either.
We are all about giving props when they are due. So I'll do that now:
Southern Ground Grub - Georgia Clay Rub (yummy rub). Endorsed by Zac Brown, and so tasty!
Put it on everything, it makes it better! (this statement hasn't actually been tried on everything)
So all in all the weekend was a success.
