Today is my birthday, I'm now officially as close to 40 as I am to 30 and I'll be honest that it's just a little scary! These years are flying away from me, but I have so much to celebrate and to be grateful for that I won't let a little thing like aging get me down.
We had a fun week-end full lots of small celebrations. The boys made me a cake from scratch. They used this recipe (which I may have hinted would be just the cake) and it was moist lemony deliciousness. I only assisted by separating the egg whites, James is not a baker and wasn't even sure what 'egg white' meant'. They did such a good job.
On Sunday we went to a friend's barbecue and brought along cup cakes iced with leftover frosting from the cake (the recipe made a crazy amount of frosting). We've officially hit our quota on baked goods for the month... maybe.
I will be spending this birthday morning at the DMV, trying to renew my license which expires today, clear up a discrepancy with my name (?), and entertain a wiggly toddler. The day can only go up from there, nothing like waiting until the last minute!
