Happy Birthday to Me!


Today is my birthday, but since it is a Monday we decided to celebrate over the weekend.  This year I took things into my own hands and made this amazing cake (this was only 1/2 the recipe and the other half went to neighbor).  My husband who isn't much of a chocolate cake fan loved the cake. It was so moist and flavorful.  I made the cake with my new Turquoise Kitchen Aide mixer that I got for my birthday.  I love it!

I went to this new restaurant called Bite with a bunch of my girl friends.  One of them had read a review about it in the newspaper.  The food was fantastic!  I had the grilled steak salad.  I need to find time to drive up there again because I really want to try their fish taco's.

I went to see the movie The Word with my mom and friend Lucy.  I am not sure if I liked it or not. I didn't hate it, but the movie left you kind of hanging.  It was a story in a story in a story.  At times I wasn't really sure what Dennis Quaid's relationship was to the other two stories.  It definitely left me thinking. 

I just started to read the book The Thread.  I hope it is good.  Well,  I am off to the hospital this morning.  I am going to be volunteering this year to help other parents who have been given the diagnoses that their child has a heart problem.  I am so excited.  Not excited that they have to go through what our family with, but excited that I can hopefully help them in some way.  Hope you had a great weekend.
