Another Year Older

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday dear C.........Happy Birthday to Me!

Yup, that's right, it's my birthday! I went home to see the family (my cousin was my personal photographer for the weekend, so I'll have those pictures later) last weekend, and it was amazing!!! We had everyone over for dinner, Mom and Dad made all my favorite foods (Flank Steak, Yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing, etc.), and we all just had an amazing time. Mom set a beautiful table, bought and arranged fresh flowers, and it looked so great that I had to take pictures!

And on today, my actual birthday, my friend S sent me flowers, all the way from across the ocean!! And not just any flowers, flowers shaped like a cupcake!! With candle and everything, they're adorable!

Do I have the best friends and family in the world, or what? Love you guys!! :)

I'm Harriet Nelson!

Or June Cleaver. Or Margaret Anderson. Pick your favorite 1950s matriarch, and for tonight (and only tonight), I'm her.

When I realized I was baking a quiche while wearing a dress, pearls, heels and an apron, I just had to document it for posterity. After all, though I bake often, it almost never happens when I'm wearing pearls! Come on, you can't honestly tell me that you wouldn't have done exactly the same thing if you found yourself in the same situation!!
