So I know I’m a little late, but it’s never really too late to talk about cake, right?
That’s what I thought.
Last week, I talked about my “pre-birthday” celebrations with co-workers and then with Brandon in Columbus.
After a full weekend of celebrating my birth, I got to celebrate again on Labor Day with Brandon’s parents!
And P.S. At that point, I was still 27. My official birthday was still two days away. But who says a birthday is only ONE day???
On Labor Day, before we went to Brandon’s parents, we stopped at the mall.
We then played: “Guess which tie is not the same color as the others … “
Have I mentioned yet that my dear husband is colorblind? He truly thought that all three ties were the same color.
So being the caring, helpful wife that I am …
… I laughed hysterically and took pictures of him while he tried to figure it out.
(Don’t worry, I eventually helped him!)
After our mall adventure, we headed to the in-laws’ house, which was all set up for a celebration!
As I’ve mentioned before, nothing my mother-in-law does is done “half-heartedly!”
For dinner, we had Cheri’s famous chicken kabobs.
These little kabobs pack a major flavor-punch!! Yum!!!
By the time dinner was ready, I was starving. And I was obviously ready to eat …
… but evidently I was the only one excited to start my birthday dinner!
(There was a golf game on … need I say more?)
Eventually everyone sat down and enjoyed a nice meal together. And then it was time for cake!!
Cheri made a delicious pumpkin roll with cream cheese frosting. I must have told her about my love for all things pumpkin.
Cheri added a little vanilla ice cream and caramel to the side, and it was autumn on a plate.
As part of my birthday gift, George and Cheri gave me the perfect gift.
Chocolate. Yep, they catch on quick, don’t they?
Following my 3rd pre-birthday celebration, I took a “birthday-hiatus” on Tuesday. But then on Wednesday … my OFFICIAL birthday … I woke up to this:
Everyone all together now:
I celebrated my “official” birthday with an “official birthday sugar-coma.” Donuts for breakfast and lunch, and a DQ Blizzard for dinner.
Kids, don’t try this at home. This kind of sugar overload is for professional sweet-tooths only.
It was a perfect birthday week … followed by several days of healthy eating to “detox” from my sugar coma!
Question for ya …
What did you do this weekend?
Do you enjoy celebrating your birthday, or do you prefer that it passes quietly?
On your birthday … cake, ice cream, or BOTH??
I think you can all guess my answer on that one …
