Happy Birthday!

My babiest one is now officially a teenager!  When did this happen?!  Just yesterday she was


Now …

This is her cake.  She loves Oreos, that’s what’s in the filling.  I still have to put the writing on it, and maybe some sprinkles if she’d like. 

She’s in a “don’t get me any presents, Mom, don’t make a big deal,” kind of phase.  I’m trying … a little.  😉


Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!  I love you so!

Me and Cap are twins!

Well … he’s turning 36, and I’m turning 34 (again) but we share a birthday!


This is the picture I have as my tablet wallpaper.  My husband thinks I’m a little too old for such things, but I ask you, is anyone ever too old for a good old fashioned superhero?  Even someone who’s been 34 as many times as I have?  No, I think not!

I miss the shield.  I haven’t seen the latest Avengers movie yet but I hear that Cap’s iconic shield has been done away with.  I suppose that’s okay, considering he has the beard now.   The beard definitely works.  🙂

Happy Birthday, Cap! 

Come on by and I’ll make us a cake!  Red, white, and blue, of course.  🙂

Rainbow Cake

She asked for a rainbow cake when she turned six.  Those “tie-dye” rainbow cakes were pretty popular back then so that’s what I made her.  She seemed happy enough.


But this year when I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, she said, “A rainbow cake, but not the messy kind like you did last time.  Can you do each color in its own layer?”

Messy kind?  I see!  lol 

The princess requested, the mom complied.  🙂

She was happy, I was relieved!
