my birthday was pretty well awesome

10 Dec

except for the 4am wake-up call (hi, jamison!!) my birthday was pretty great. daddyjay let me sleep a little after she nursed and justice came to my bedroom when he got up and said, “happy birthday, mommy!” it was very very sweet.

i got presents including note cards (yay!,) money (yay!,) a nordstrom gift card (yay!) that i’ve already put to some use, a beautiful necklace set (yay!,) and the big daddy:

super mario bros. WII!!!!
super mario bros. for wii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

after years and years of searching for the perfect recipe, made the best chicago-style pizza crust ever. cooks illustrated*, i am forever indebted to you. forever, i tell you.

coca-cola

coca-cola in the bottle

delicious cake from tammie coe cakes that daddyjay picked up at la grande orange. i got this one.

and fun all around. it was a good day with no laundry, a little play time & a whole lot of love.

i can’t wait until next year!

*btw – the only problem with cooks illustrated is that you have to pay to check out their recipes. it’s worth it us, since they have some of the best around.
