cake, pie, cake, brownies, cake and cupcakes


I've been blogging in my head, just no time to translate it to here. I'm also working on the updated version of 'things about me' to celebrate my 47th birthday (how they hell did that happen?).

In the meantime I'll leave you with photographs of all of the amazing baked goods that came with celebrating my birthday.

I worked at Marigold on Sunday and was greeted with cake (Taylor's bakery, chocolate, butter cream frosting) and flowers.

Dinner at Arni's Sunday night with my family and a friend and her children. Mom made me my very favorite birthday dessert, ever - fresh strawberry pie. Ummm.

Sunday evening Bad Influence Girl knocked on my door with this fabulous cake (clearly I should have photographed it before I started eating). I started my birthday morning with cake...and maybe a sliver of strawberry pie and drinking tea on my front porch in my jammies.

I stopped at the Red Key on the way home from work and had one of these fudgy fabulous birthday brownies baked by Maureen. Guinness and brownies is a surprisingly good combination.

Next stop on the sugar tour: Daddy Jack's to hear Soul Bus, my dear friend, David's birthday was last Tuesday. Bill and Kim, fans of the band and friends brought this beautiful chocolate cake.

Last, but certainly not least- David's famous chocolate cupcakes. A batch for the band, for the customers and a cute box with two cupcakes, candle and matches for me.

I'll be at the gym, if anyone needs me. I'll be the one with chocolate frosting on my face.

Hi Nora! Happy belated birthday. Now this is the way one should celebrate her birthday. Brownies, cakes and pie, oh my. Every cake looked so yummy especially the strawberry.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Lisa

Being nice all of this time certainly did pay off. You deserved every accolade. Happy Birthday Nora. You're a good'un.

Happy Birthday a day late! I have a giant bucket of Red Vines with your name on it. I brought it with me to the Indiana Songwriter's thingie last Friday night, but I didn't see you.

Looks like you cornered the market of baked stuff!

You got tons of goodies!!!
Happy Birthday, Nora!!
Sorry I'm a day late.
You share a birthday with my brother.
I'm nearly 44. I know what you mean about "how did THAT happen???"
Don't worry though because you have a very hip style about you. That translates into being young at heart which you certainly are. I know there are women in their twenties who could NOT keep up with you and your busy schedule.
I'm glad you had lots of good food on your special day!

Looks like your birthday was sweet! Sorry I missed the festivities, I owe you a Guinness next time you need a beverage to wash down the chocolate frosting.
