Several days ago, my mom wrote on my facebook wall inviting us over to a birthday BBQ. For the life of me, I could not remember whose we were celebrating next. My brain ran down the list of all my family members and though I fairly quickly figured it out, I was amazed I had forgotten my birthday was coming up. I guess 27 didn’t really excite me? But BBQs do!
I pretty much wanted to give a shout out to a) my mom for being a terrific hostess to a big group and cooking some of my favorite dishes ever and b) to my friend Courtney who made this unbelievable cake for me!! She is one talented baker and, if she kept a blog, she’d have thousands of followers. 🙂
Mike and I eventually made our way home that night and realized (besides my quick Instagram cake shot), we hadn’t taken a single picture. Sad. We’ve gotten bad about that lately. So, before the sweats could come on, we set the camera on a shelf and snapped our picture. And by shelf I mean we popped open the microwave and put the camera inside it. 🙂 As you can see, Chicha is checking out my favorite gift – the Nook Simple Touch! I had had the original one, but Mike got me an upgrade and I super love it.
Thanks, everyone, for a wonderful birthday!
