Let them eat cake
Here are a few pics from my birthday yesterday.
I made this super yummy carrot cake from scratch, using my friend's mom's recipe. (It has pineapple between the layers.) It turned out sooooo tasty! The recipe made a lot of cream cheese frosting, but I decided not to put it all on the cake, since it was already so decadent, and tossed a fair amount.
Excuse my no make-up face. I had a headache for much of the day and didn't even shower until about 5 p.m. Thankfully my headache cleared up and I was able to enjoy our takeout dinner from Old Chicago and the cake that I made. Also, I'm not sure what's up with the weird shadowy things on my chest in these pics. I guess they were a reflection from the candles?
And yes, Ava is poking her
Other than the headache, it was a nice birthday. Jody made breakfast and lunch, changed all of the diapers all day (woohoo!), I got to take a nap alone in the morning, Jody and I got some alone time in the afternoon while Ava napped, and I even got some presents. :) I can't complain.
Thanks for all the birthday greetings. :)
