Thanks for all the lovely Birthday wishes yesterday. I am officially one year older than Earth Day - it was started in 1969. :-)
The juice party/playdate was a success. The kids had a great time and the moms had a great time (at least I did!). I had picked up pizzas prior to the party, so we had pizza and juice. The kids REALLY seemed to like the juice. I sampled the different varieties and thought they were all quite good.
Which means a lot coming from a person who only likes water and wine (like Jesus!). Oh, and the occasional sweet iced tea from McDonald's or Wendy's...
And speaking of Wendy's, I made the Evil Twin run down to ours and get me a sandwich at about 10:30 pm. I really, really, really wanted a Big Bacon Classic, but they don't have those on the menu anymore, so I got a single with cheese and everything plus bacon. Voila! A big bacon classic - almost. It was so damn good I nearly cried.
Anyway, prior to all that: when the Evil Twin walked in after work, I noticed he was carrying a small white box. He had said he was going to pick up a cake after work. Now, we all know the cakes from the grocery stores are usually on a black plastic sheet with a clear plastic top. So, I was curious.
He had stopped at Spring Hill Bakery for a cake. That bakery is renowned here for having the BEST cakes and pastries around. It's also not the cheapest place in town. I was thrilled! It was a checkerboard cake with vanilla frosting with chocolate piping. It's some of the best cake I've had in a while.
What a great surprise! :-)
I had a bit of wine last night - not as much as I would have liked but I had a slow start and I was tired. So, I got in bed early. I'll make up for the lack of wine consumption tonight.
I took a few pictures after the juice party yesterday - I totally forgot to get pics of before. They had sent me a table cloth and everything, but after the kids had pizza, it had some sauce on it, so I took it off and threw it away. Dang it! I was just too busy to remember the before pics. Oh well, what matters is that everyone had fun. I'll upload pics later.
And now, I'm off for a glamorous Thursday. I hope you are too!
