Today I Blew Out Some Candles.

Wanna know what song I've had running through my head all day?

"Go shorty, it's your birthday, we're gonna party like it's your birthday, gonna sip Bacardi like it's your birthday."

Never mind that I don't drink Bacardi.  I don't drink alcohol at all.  And that's not just when I'm pregnant.

I I think it's soooo weird that years after that song was sung, (ad nauseum) to every friend celebrating a birthday, it would pop in my head today.

And if you don't know what song I'm talking about, count yourself lucky.  Haha!

Anyways.  Awesome birthday because I have an amazing husband and wonderful family members.  Tony came home early to make me a cake (I made one too).  He brought Sees Candies chocolates (scotchmallow anyone?  just kidding.  all mine.) and a gift card to Motherhood Maternity (much needed and appreciated!!!). 

Here are the pics to prove how loved I am.  :)

(and it was.  it REALLY was!)

(molly.  one of my incredible sisters.  she made a gloriously, yummy enchilada dinner tonight!)

(my monkey face cake.  so much fun to make.  it was a big hit with the short set.  got the idea here and simplified it.)

Just Us Girls
(tony's girls.)

(my chocolates.  as you can see, i've already enjoyed two.)

Blowing Out the Candles
(blowing out the candles - with  little help.  i can't ever remember to make a wish.  this is the cake that tony baked.  he said he looked through a lot of cake recipes.  so glad he chose this one.  if there ever was a death by chocolate edible, this is it.  if you'd like to have one of your own, go here.)

Happy Birthday to ME!!

Hey fellow Virgo- Happy Birthday to you. Mine was yesterday. I wish my husband had made me a cake- especially that cake. It occurred to him after dinner that he should have made a cake. Oh well, I guess its the thought.
