It’s my birthday and I’ll shamelessly brag about it on the internet if I want to.

As much as I love to talk about myself (you are all aware of this by now), it’s never been easy to shout from the rooftops that IT’S MY BIRTHDAY. I don’t know, I’m just not a big fan of BEING SHOWERED WITH ATTENTION ON MY BIRTHDAY or anything like that.  In fact, I’ve always kind of thought GETTING REALLY FANCY, EXPENSIVE GIFTS FOR MY BIRTHDAY was a sweet gesture, but completely unNECESSARY TO RETAIN MY FRIENDSHIP.

Anyway. I’m getting old and it’s slightly depressing… I think I woke up with a wrinkle. At least I have a fun weekend lined up with some of my favorite girls and my lovely family and I am SO looking forward to all the good food that’s happening.

What are your plans for celebrating my birthday this weekend? :)

Thank you to my sweet sister in law Megan, who made the flipping adorable {red velvet} cake that I will have scarfed down by day’s end. Love you, Meg!

  1. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR FRIEND!!!!! Go ahead, shout it from the {cyber} rooftops!!! :D

    And enjoy that fun-filled weekend you’ve got planned!! I can’t wait to read all about it!

    And holy cow, that cake is beautiful!!!!!


    My best friend is 7 years older than I. When I was 18, she would say “my knees hurt…” and I would “lovingly” say “thats what happens when you turn 25”. “I have a gray hair”…”thats what happens…”

    We did this until I turned 25. Now my knees hurt…and she gets to say “thats what happens when you turn 25”

    So have a drink to “what happens when you turn 25”, lol.

    Have a good one!

  3. Babe, you’re hilarious. I freaking love you and I hope you have THEE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS!! I’ll be having a drink or two or seven in your honor this weekend.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! That cake is amazing!! And don’t worry, even though you feel old, rest assured I am MUCH older :)
    I am going to celebrate your birthday with a few martinis tonight. CHEERS from your *favorite* stalker (yeah, I decided that for you)
    Again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Enjoy your celebrations!

  5. HAPPY FREAKING BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Can’t WAIT to see you tomorrow! And OMG that cake is THE CUTEST thing I’ve ever seen. CAPS LOCK EXPLOSION!

  6. MY plans for celebrating YOUR birthday is to head up to the mountains and enjoy the fresh air.. That is until I work my butt off hiking into an illegal marijuana grow where I have to then pickup piles and piles of trash.. only to cart the CRA* to the nearest net and cuss in my head about the people who make the forest look this way.. :) but, I’ll keep you in mind ;) Happy Birthday!
    PS. if the stuff can’t be carted back and they they need to burn it, just take a deep breath this weekend and thank me on Sunday ;)

  7. First, happy belated birthday! And second, I’m taken aback by the craftiness/ability to make inanimate objects look splendid that seems to run in your genes. Wow! Tell your sister “Grade A+” on the confection. Hope you had a great day. PS: I’m sure I was washing dishes in celebration…

  8. happiest of birthdays to ye!!! adorable blog, adorable cake – i’m so jealous because this is exactly what my wedding cake was supposed to look like, and instead it looked like a 6-year-old with adhd got turned loose with some fondant and a bucket of icing…


  9. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope it is wonderful!

    That cake is amazing. Lets hope she sells them for some sweet moola, because she totally could!

  10. So I totally got you confused with another fellow blogger who recently had a birthday. She had just turned 25, hence my comment earlier.

    OOPS! My old age is getting to me!

    I actually have no idea what your age is, lol. ANYWAY, before I embarrass myself any further…Hope your Birthday was wonderful and filled with FABULOUS people and presents!

  11. Happy (belated, I suck) birthday! You are amazing and I hope your weekend was legendary!

    Also, I’m sure you have no wrinkles. Silly.

    Also (again), that cake made my tummy rumble something fierce. Can I borrow your sister-in-law sometime? You know, so she can be my own, personal slave and make me cake all the time? Get back to me on that one.

    Love you, Morgan! You are a gem.

  12. Sad face that I didn’t get to wish you happy birthday on your blog. (thankgoodness for facebook, at least :))
    You’re young, you know… still closer to 20 than 30. I, on the other hand, am not. Let’s not discuss that.
    ADORABLE cake!! perfect for you, darling. You’re so loved…. and no wonder!

  13. your SIL cakes are AMAZING. Seriously. I love the one she made you!!
    Hooray for Morgan being born, I don’t know what’d I’d do without your blog! And oh yeah, your FRIENDSHIP! hee!
