Happy Birthday, Mom

Happy Birthday to my mom today! My mom is such a wonderful and kind-hearted person. She’s a great mom and an awesome Grandma. I love you, Mom!

Last night, we went to Red Lobster to celebrate my mom’s birthday. We started out with the cheddar biscuits, which were as delicious as everyone said they were.

We also had shrimp brushetta. Normally, I do not like tomatoes or shrimp, but I tasted the brushetta (that’s what happens when you’re super hungry) and it was actually pretty good.

For my meal, I ordered fire-grilled salmon and crab & seafood stuffed flounder with broccoli. The salmon was decent, but I didn’t like the flounder.

My mom ordered parmesan crusted tilapia, which blew my meal out of the water (get it, out of the water. Fish. Water. Ha-ha. No?) Even Danny’s Cajun pasta was way better than my fish. Oh well, I know what to order next time.

This is what happens when your bring an almost one-year old out to dinner.

Don’t worry, we left a good tip.

After dinner, we came back to our house to open presents. That’s really the fun part of birthdays, isn’t it? No one likes getting older, but everyone likes opening presents.

Apparently, Danny really likes present opening time.

After presents, we had dessert. This is what I was waiting for! I bought a Michigan four-berry pie from Whole Foods, and it’s easily the best pie that I’ve ever had. I’m even thinking about finishing the rest for breakfast right now.

We also had┬ácake. I didn’t have a zero candle, so I had to compromise and make a zero shape using candles. I’m crafty like that.

Happy birthday, mom!!

Today is my sister-in-law’s baby shower, and I am so excited to show you the diaper cake that I made her.

It’s made out of all diapers. I think it turned out so cute. It’s supposed to be a gender neutral diaper cake, but it came out looking more girly. I guess that’s what happens when you buy flowers and butterflies.

It’s the second diaper cake that I’ve made. I also made one for my sister-in-law’s shower last June. I actually had gotten the idea from her when she made one for a baby shower we both attended.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
