Happy Birthday to me~

Yep, it's my birthday today. Picked up some e-cards already this morning. I love Hoops & Yoyo! Got cards in the mail yesterday. I love snail mail cards. In just a bit, I'm driving waaaayyy up on the north side to Flourish Bakery Cafe.
Gonna buy a scrumptious double chocolate cake w/buttercream frosting to share with friends today. Then later, enjoy dinner with more friends...the ones that AREN'T out of town this great day!


We have several September birthdays in my family, thus we celebrated last weekend in St Louis. My sister made a delicious Black Magic chocolate cake that took us right back into grandma's kitchen. I made the yummy divinity frosting to top it off. It's one of those family recipes we enjoyed for years.

So about all those birthday calls...my phone took a bubble bath yesterday while working with the J twins. Big sister got into the toy bag, which is fine...but she didn't quite get the bubble lid tightened AND then she put it in my briefcase/tote thing INSTEAD of the toy bag. Thus, my phone was soaking in an inch of bubbles along with my money, passport, Paris photos for a scrapbook project...Don't you know I left that house happy! Ever heard of the kid's book Alexander & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? That's another post, I suppose.

ANYWAY all those birthday song messages may be heard via voicemail. So if you call, be sure to sing a message! :o)

Birthday kisses to everyone~

Carm,
I think our musical b-day greeting came through. Anyway, looking forward to celebrating with you in person on the Monday we discussed (the 9th, I think--seems so far away).

Oh Carmen . . . I totally missed your special day! Hope it was much happier than Alexander's horriblenogoodverybad day!

FLOURISH! OoooLahLah! I'll be right down to lick the crumbs!

I must say that everyone walking into my kitchen notices that cute "drop of pink and chocolate" cafe sign you ordered for me for my birthday! Hmmmmmmm . . . now how am I going to top that?

Oh, yes, stop by my blog and see the most adorable Bento box lunches an American Asian mom makes for her preschooler! I can totally see making Grace a Bento!

Love and Frosting,
