[Warning: This is a heavy self-involved post. But isn't that what blogging is all about?]
That has been the theme of the month so far. This weekend it was all about me and I feel very spoiled now that it is over. My husband did way more than expected, in fact he went over the top with such nice gifts. And since we don't pay our bills I don't feel guilty in the slightest bit.
My mom spent most of my actual birthday with me and took me shopping. She got me some shoes and a really cute skirt. I felt like a kid the entire day! She really made me feel special. Thanks Daisy! Later in the evening after Tyrone and my dad got off of work my parents took us to the Cheesecake Factory. I died and gone to Never, Never Land! I don't think I have stopped eating since Thursday night.
Saturday evening we had some family and my best friend over for some appetizers and cake AND cookies! I made my own birthday...Yes, I know! How dare I?? I wanted to do it. I made a carrot cake out of the classic better homes cook book. It was deeelicous! Yes, it's gone. I finished that bitch off after everyone left! My MIL crotched the nicest blanker for me. I thought the one she made for Tyrone was nice but mine is BETTER!!! I love it! It's beautiful purple, teal and fuscia and made with the softest yarn. My BESTIE brought me a copy of Martha's latest Halloween book which I almost bought recently but ended up putting it back on the shelf. She knows me too well.
All in all it was really lovely and I didn't want it to end. Here are some random pics from the whole weekend.

|Red Velvet Cheesecake - I had a slight orgasm while I ate it|
|These shoes are a funny story. I told my mom they were what I wanted and she said OK but was hating every minute of it as she was paying for GOLD shoes. Haha!|
|These do NOT taste any different than a regular Blue Moon, good, but not pumpkin flavored at all|
|I bought this for the label only, but it turned out pretty good. My brother brought me a really nice bottle of Chardonnay that was REALLY good!|
|He won't look at the camera just to spite me.|
|Totally dominated my new blanket|
|Made these from a recipe out of this book. They are so gooood.|

If you can't tell I played around with the new photo apps on my phone. I thought I would have to get an iPhone to experience awesome photo apps but I was wrong. I got the droid2 and am now thinking of having it surgically attached to my person.
