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.
