Here we are, a week after my last post, and now I have so much to catch this blog up on that I don't know where to start. For starters, here are some birthday celebration pictures that I promised:
|I love family birthday celebrations for a lot of reasons: I get to pick the menu and and the cake flavor, and I get to enjoy all of it with everyone I love most. What more could a girl want in a birthday?|
|Compliments of Morgan Cody. Vegan Chocolate Death cake (recipe from The Grit--yum!) with homemade strawberry cream cheese icing. Even the flowers were made from scratch. I've said it before and I'll say it again: my sister will own a bakery some day.|
|Being led to my birthday surprise that my mom has talked about incessantly for the past three months...|
|Isn't she beautiful?? I can't wait to put her in my house...you know you're getting older when you get furniture for you birthday.|
So the birthday weekend definitely put me in a sugar coma--but oh how sweet it was while it lasted!...literally.
