Just in case you were curious about a few other burfday shenanigans, I’ve got some pics.
When I walked into the salon on Thursday, look how nicely my station was decorated!
Wait… what’s the red box?
CHOCOLATE-COVERED ORANGE SLICES! Edible Arrangement’s best kept secret. Mmmmm…
And wait… what about that bouquet?
Brian’s family sent me the prettiest flowers! I do love lilies (the name “Suzanna” means “lily”, fyi). And it just so happened that it coordinated beautifully with the rest of my station decor! (Thanks, Donna! I love them!)
Last night I got together with my Girls’ Night/Bible Study friends. Two of us had just celebrated a birthday, so we all took care to bring extra special goodies.
There were a total of five of us, but look at this spread!
Yes, that’s Sherri reaching for my World Peace Salad. And, believe it or not, not all of the food had reached the table yet. (I did eat some leftovers for a midnight snack last night.)
Another friend, Kristie, diligently labored over a Martha Stewart recipe to bring the most decadent lemon chiffon cake for our celebration. Here’s how that turned out:
Alas, Martha Stewart seems to have evil schemes to cause the mental and emotional stability of her followers to slowly unravel as Martha never quite gives you all of the information you’ll need to succeed. Kristie resorted to Plan B, but her dog got ahold of the cake in the meantime. In spite of its imperfect appearance, it was actually delicious!
However, since Kristie thought I had to have lemon cake, she went to Harris Teeter and bought me a slice (which I never got to taste because Brian ate the whole thing)!
Cake aside, do you see how absolutely adorable this mini spork is?! It’s got its own little indented home to fix it into the cake package! I was really quite mesmerized.
Have a beautiful weekend!
