My Mom's Cooler Than Your Mom

I went to my parents for a couple of days since Ariana is on winter break. While there, my mom decided to celebrate my birthday, which is next week. She started with 2 great soy candles that smell sooo yummy. She then took me shopping for a gift (got a sweet rubberized whisk so I can stir right in my pans!) And then we went out to dinner. It was so great to have a quiet dinner out. Although Ariana and Annika had stayed with Grampy, I still had Acadia... and she slept through the entire meal! Thank goodness for small miracles.

But the icing on the cake (pun intended) was my birthday cake... a TIRAMISU cake! That is the best birthday cake that I have had in my adult life (you just can't beat a homemade Strawberry Shortcake birthday cake when you are a kid) I think I could have eaten the entire cake, which is why I gained 3 pounds in the 2 days I was there!

It was so worth it though.


  1. Your mom is pretty cool!

    How nice that she treated you.

  2. Yep Cool mom! i'm blessed w/ a cool one like that too! ♥
