Birthday Shots

Despite gloomy weather, my awesome family came into town to help me celebrate my birthday. They made my day really special!

Mom made me a dessert table! So pretty and tempting...we munched all day! She made cake balls with everyone's name on them, and some TO DIE FOR chocolate ganache truffles.

We made a fantastic dinner: grilled shrimp and steak, salad, potatoes, and garlic bread.

Murphy helped open gifts...he is surprisingly good at it!

Since my family won't be in town for Jer's birthday, we had a double celebration. Mom made these amazing for each of us. Jer's (left) was a red velvet cake layered with chocolate ganache, and covered in cream cheese icing. Mine (right) was a chocolate cake layered with strawberry mousse and covered in buttercream icing. SO GOOD!

Thanks to my family for a really special birthday!

On a side note, today is the 1 year anniversary of my blog! Time flies when you're having fun! I have some new plans to redesign and get a new URL VERY soon...stay tuned.
