Birthday Eatings!

My birthday has come and gone, but I still have about 50 pounds of birthday cake in the fridge as evidence of a great day!

Nate and Cate did a wonderful job making my day special. Nate came home from surfing that morning with smoothies and pastries. What a good guy. Our birthday “party” that night was complete with Leucadia Pizzeria’s BBQ Chicken Pizza (my current favorite at Leucadia), an awesome “Cars” mylar balloon picked out by Cate, some great gifts and, of course, my annual birthday favorite – The Viking from Extraordinary Desserts. (If you live in San Diego, you MUST be sure to visit Extraordinary Desserts.) Boy am I glad I passed my prenatal glucose test earlier this week!

Cate was so excited to eat the cake she kept singing “Happy Birthday to Mommy” over and over in the hopes that it would speed up the birthday party process. Unlike her mom and dad, she finished her entire piece and then asked for more!

The cake was (and still is) awesome…but the best part was being with Nate and Cate, especially now that Cate LOVES celebrating our birthdays so much, which makes it all such great fun. I am truly blessed.

    So this explains why you wouldn’t come up to Irvine to see your old buddy…birthdaying’ it up, eh? Well, good! Kudos to Nate the Tank for keeping up that party-animal attitude we’ve grown to love over the years. Hope you had a great day, Janers. We sure miss you.
