happy birthday to me

I wish I liked cake. I really do. Well, I wish I liked it more than I do. I think it's ok, but there are better desserts out there. I like white cake with some frosting, not spread on thick, but an appropriate amount. I like mocha frosting, which tastes so good.

I guess you could say I am picky about cake.

I wasn't even that excited about my wedding cake. It was pretty, but it didn't taste that good. I didn't go to a bakery and taste all these flavors and fillings and look at pictures. I just found someone I knew who could make a pretty cake and that was it.



When I turned thirty I had a fancy cake: chocolate with mocha filling and it too was beautiful. But I don't really like chocolate cake that much...but the hostess knew that and she went to a local Italian eatery and had them make a bowl of tiramisu for my birthday. It was the best thing I ever tasted...creamy and a little chocolatey with some coffee flavor in the background. Lovely. MMMMM.

But today I turn 32 and I have no idea what kind of dessert I am going to have. I like cheesecake, too, so sometimes we get that and I blow out my candles on that. Some years I don't even have candles. When did grownups stop having candles? I really liked that as a kid. Candles are fun and I get to make a wish.

This year I wished for a new faucet and a new purse, and I am pretty sure I am getting both. In fact, I know so, since I was asked to pick out both of them. I will show them off later, once the faucet is installed and I actually have said purse. It is red and shiny and you know how I like that!

So, happy birthday to me. Happy birthday, dear Sissy. Happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday!
I happen to ADORE cake and since I was the birthday girl on monday, I baked myself a chocolate cake, while singing "boo hoo I'm 32."
Enjoy your faucet an purse!

Lots of love to you, old lady!

Happy Birthday! Hope its been a fantastic day!

I know you're excited about your faucet and purse and all, but aren't you most excited about getting to meet me on Saturday?

I knew it. However, I will NOT be wrapped in a birthday ribbon, but I will sing you my rendition of the birthday song. It doesn't last that long.

Happy Birthday my dear. Can't wait to hear what kind of cake you chose. Also, if you blew out all the candles with one breath.

Happy birthday!!! Speaking of cakes have you ever visited www.cakewrecks.blogspot.com? You might get a laugh. I'm totally cracking up that you wanted a new faucet. I want a new sink for Christmas! My husband wants a whole-house-humidifier. When did we grow up and become so practical? Aren't we supposed to want diamonds and perfume? Ahhh...I guess we really are adults, aren't we?
