Birthday Bash!

My 26th Birthday was just spectacular. Those that love me filled my day with love and made me feel so very special. My Mom had three bouquets of fresh flowers waiting for me in my room, made my favorite peanut butter cookies AND chocolate chip cookies, and made my special birthday cake that I requested. She makes THE BEST Red Velvet cake in the world.





Yummmmy!

My sweet husband showered me with lovely gifts. He got me these fabulous Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses....



He also got me the Julia Childs cookbooks that Julie cooked through in the Julie and Julia movie!! After seeing the movie (it was great, by the way), I really can't wait to try some of the recipes. Yum, Yum!

Mom and Dad got me some fabulous gifts as well. I don't have a picture of them all because I had to leave some of it at their house (with all our yard sale boxes, we couldn't fit everything in our car), and they are going to bring them up tonight. I got a new Coach bag (it is beeeeautiful - green crocodile! AH!), a few other goodies and last but certainly not least...this beautiful ring:




It's an emerald - Levi's birthstone. I LOVE IT!

That evening, my whole family met together to have a nice dinner. It was superb!



It was so cute, they had a teeny tiny place setting for little Levi. How adorable is that?! The glass was tiny and the silverware was tiny. So presh!



We capped the evening off with a New York Carnegie Deli Cheesecake. My parents order one for me every year because it is simply my most favorite dessert in the entire world. Oh. My. Word.





It was a fabulous weekend.

And this little fella made it even more grand.

  6. what a wonderful birthday celebration! It looks like just a fabulous day!

    You should really consider sharing the red velvet cake recipe! I tried and failed to make my husband a bleeding armadillo cake for his bday last year, and unfortunately it didn't taste any better than it looked!

  16. WOW - what a ring! And I thought mine was a honker! I love Carnegie Deli cheesecake too, but I think I'll be ordering mine from afar like your family does instead of actually visiting the deli again, if you've read my story....ha! I'm so glad you had such a great birthday!
