Thank you so much to those who sent me Happy Birthday emails and LJ messages and the like yesterday! It's always wonderful to get good wishes from lovely fandom friends on that day; it lets me celebrate how enriched my life has been by all of you and fannish experiences along with the usual birthday brouhaha. :D ♥

As the mister had a work commitment last night and was very busy yesterday during the day, we'll be extending the celebrations through the weekend with official birthday cake eating to come later (thank goodness, because that eating stuff has to get spread out somehow). He did get me an amazing bouquet of flowers as a pre-celebration gift, so I have gorgeous roses and lilies and tulips and these pretty little pink flowers whose name I cannot for the life of me remember.

Shockingly, I did not have pie for my birthday! :o But I did get to go out for a lovely lunch with a wonderful friend yesterday and ate a most excellent brown sugar salted caramel cupcake (zohmahgawd delicious). It was on the small size, like regular cupcake portion tin rather than the ginormous monster ones you usually get. On the one hand, a perfect single serving! On the other hand, it disappeared quickly. D:

Now I'm going to return to drinking my french-press worth of coffee and getting to read a friend's soon to be published novel, and think about when Mexican-ish food dining and margarita-consuming will happen. Not bad for a Friday!

YOU HAD ME AT THAT CUPCAKE. Holy smokes, that sounds amazing!! I firmly believe cupcakes should come in twos. Like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! :D

AND THEN YOU HAD ME AGAIN AT MEXICAN FOOD AND MARGARITAS. <3 <3 Oooh, it's going to be pool weather soon, and I'm going to fantasize about whisking you down here, practicing cartwheels into the deep end, Marco Polo, and blackberry margaritas with you. AND GUACAMOLE. AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND BLACK BEAN TAMALES.

*sobs* :D

RIGHT? Gah, so delicious; I wish I could have a dozen waiting for you on your doorstep by tomorrow afternoon!

:DDDDDD I am so stupidly excited for this meal; the mister is going to take one for the team and drink soda so he can pour me into the car and drive me home after. OH oh oh, that poolside day sounds so fabulous to me! I am jealous of your gorgeous spring weather! EEeeeeee, those tamales! I want them in my mouth right now!!!

*holds you and sobs along*

Happy birthday! Your birthday sounds lovely, and I am very fond of the birthday spread out over many days.

I hope your year is full of joy!

Thank you so much! :D It's the best sort of celebration that keeps on going for days, I think.

Yay to an extended birthday celebration! The bouquet sounds lovely and I want one of those salted caramel cupcakes right this minute!

I'm only six pages into the book and loving it but have a wedding rehearsal dinner and then the wedding itself this weekend. Here's hoping I can find time to read!

Yay!!!! Both the bouquet and the cupcake are/were A+! Good luck fitting in reading time and I hope the wedding brings some fun and deliciousness along the way.

Thank you very much! Yes, a week seems only fair; how else to fit in all the treats we're all due for our birthdays? :D

It was very nice, and more low-key than I had first imagined (we scaled back plans a bit, which worked out well).

The cake turned out pretty amazing! I will upload some pics later, because even though it's camera phone craptacular images, I think you can still get a sense of the deliciousness. :D

Now, it's a very rich cake, and it's not *precisely* what I was searching for in a peanut-butter-chocolate dessert. Like, it's really good, but the search for the perfect peanut-butter-chocolate dessert GOES ON!
