Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Happy Birthday to me!

Yeah, I often sing myself the "Happy Birthday" song - makes my office feel a little less lonely. LOL!

So, as you might have guessed - today is my birthday. I'm 34 today, officially entering the mid-30s range of age, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. To be perfectly honest, I hadn't even thought about my upcoming birthday (which is rare for me!) until my Mom brought my bday card to my shower this past weekend - with strict instructions to NOT open it until my birthday. I guess that I looked at her with confusion on my face, because SHE had to remind ME that my birthday was the next Friday! Too much other things going on, I suppose.

I don't know what's in store for me today. My husband is typically lavish with the gifts, and we don't have any of our children this weekend (except for the one that's still baking) so a nice, relaxing weekend might be just what the doctor ordered!

On a sort-of related side-note: while perusing Google images for a picture of a cool-looking birthday cake to include with this post, I came across some VERY disturbing pictures of birthday cakes. There were a lot of children's birthday cakes, which was expected. And there were plenty of cool looking cakes made into things that aren't cakes:

But then there were several on the first 10 or so pages of images that would not be completely appropriate to post here on the blog for those readers that might be reading while at work. An unusual amount. And then there was this one:

I don't know that I have words for someone who wants a Tom Selleck birthday cake. Maybe I would just say "to each his/her own" or "good luck!" I don't know. What's the oddest birthday cake that you've ever seen? Just for my own curiousity.
