Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta - Angie's Birthday Recap

Just in case you missed it last week, I had a birthday. I don't know how you could've missed it because I mentioned it no less than 3,105 times over the last month. But, we'll put that aside.

Ok, I'm seriously just kidding. My birthdays have never really been a big deal because my family really never made a big deal about it. So, I now overcompensate BIG TIME with my kids because I want them to feel important on their day each year. But, that's a post for another day.

Hubby bought me a cookie cake on my actual bday last week and presented it to me after I had a REALLY bad day. Have I ever mentioned my love affair with the Great American Cookie Company? Oh my. It's bad. So bad, that the cake you see below was mostly inhaled by yours truly. Which would explain why my pants are tighter this week. Bleh. Here's me being presented my cake. Yes, those are Mickey Mouse ears on my head.

I'm just thankful that hubby opted for the single digit candles. We would've visited fire danger territory if he had gone another direction. Did I mention how yummy the cake was?

So, last Friday, hubby surprised me with an appointment at my fave local day spa. I was pampered with a massage and other services. It was heavenly. And then he took me out to dinner at a local fave restaurant. It was yummy Italian, followed by ice cream at Coldstone Creamery. (This could also be a contributor to my pants issue this week) We ended the night at a local arcade where hubby kicked my arse at basketball and air hockey. The air hockey was a rematch from last year where I whipped up on him pretty badly. And suffered a pretty nasty cut and bruise on my arm for getting just a bit too wrapped up in my level of play. Did I mention I'm a wee bit competitive? And a sore loser?

It was a lovely birthday! And just for the record, I'm still holding out for a surprise party. Just one. Before I die. Please.

What a great birthday! I love cookie cake too, but they are so hard to find now!

And I am sure you loved the day spa!!!

My name is Kat. And I am addicted to Great American Cookie Company. It's been 9 months since my last cookie. And 9 months since I set foot in a mall.

When I was pregnant, I used to make Michael go a few times a week to get me chocolate chip cookies. Which I would put in the fridge and eat cold. Oh, yummmm. And then with the kids, I got addicted to their sugar cookies. I have yet to find a sugar cookie as good as theirs.

We have gotten the kids cookie cakes from there before. I am not a frosting person, so it makes sharing with them very easy :-)

Did I tell you my sugar cravings are on high alert this week. The carb free thing is going to do me in. I need to find a way to love being this heavy :-)

I love your cookie cake, your big smile and the mouse ears. hehe

Happy Birthday AGAIN!!

I do NOT want a surprise party. I live in fear of one of those. But, I'll go to one, no problem...just not FOR me. :o)

Sounds like you had a nice birthday. Good hubby for getting the cake and the pampering surprise.

Tabi said...

Did you save any of the cake for us to share? No?!?! Gosh, well that's okay! I'm glad you had good birthday evening! It nice to feel special every now and then!

Lori said...

What? Your husband didn't let you win ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?? Shame on him! :)

Shannon said...

My girls want one of these for their next birthdays ...Little Miss thinks we have to stop by the "cookie store" every time we are at the mall.

Again, I'm glad to hear you had a great birthday!!!!

Michelle said...

Awww, that's so sweet! The whole thing. And that cookie looks SO good! I'm bummed you didn't share with us ;)

I get the celebrating big for the kids. My parents did it right, and I'm working on doing it right for my wee ones. My husband has never had a birthday party (and unfortunately doesn't have enough friends here to really do one, but when he turns 40...).

For my 30th? Nothing. I got a card and some presents. I have to get my own cake if I want one, and I am sooo jealous of your whole celebration! Yay hubby!

Jenn said...

I had those candles last week too ,but mine said 35 . Glad you had a fun day!

Susie said...

What a great birthday!! Good for you:-) You are the second person who suggested relaxing spa-like experience today. It sounds like karma needs me to soak in my tub for a few hours:-) Thanks for the suggestion.

Kelly said...

Sounds like hubby treated you well on your b-day! Hope he reads your blog so he's clued in on the surprise party wish...or may be SHANNON can push him into planning one for you!!
I'm glad you had a good birthday!
