I'm Turning Twenty-Faux. Again.

Yes, it's my birthday today! I am turning twenty-faux. Again! It's like Groundhog Day or something, only with cake and presents.

Speaking of cake, I about had a nervous breakdown when I realized The Great American Cookie Company in our mall closed and I will no longer be receiving my yearly cookie cake with lots of icing and chocolate chips. It doesn't seem very Great or American to me to keep a girl from her cookie cake. They didn't even send me a "Dear John" letter!

T is the kind of guy who likes the pressure of planning things last minute. You'd think that he forgets about important things like cake and birthday plans and making me feel like the Queen (!) because he waits until I gently remind him of my big day, but I think really he just likes the excitement of it all.

He is working all day today and won't be home until after 9 tonight. Because I am a firm believer in hogging the spotlight and making the day as much about me as possible, I planned a couple of fun things for me and the girls.

We have a play date this morning followed by lunch at Chick-fil-a with my friend Christy and her kids. If I can squeeze in any opportunity to shop, I will. And Saturday night brings the Chick Flick Club back. Some of the girls are going to dinner with me, and then we'll go see Water for Elephants, because if anyone can make me forget the grief of no cookie cake, it is Robert Pattinson.

I'll be sure to apprise you of the cake situation. Cake is no laughing matter, people. I know this is as important to you as it is to me.

And if it's not, maybe you'll enjoy the Silhouette Rhinestone Tutorial I posted earlier today. There's also a crazy Silhouette promo here that you can take advantage of by using my code SERENITY. Click this morning's post for details!

I hope you'll come back tomorrow to link up YOUR best post of the week to Weekend Bloggy Reading. Recipes, crafts, home decor, book reviews, funny stories, you name it. Come prepared to showcase your blog and find some great weekend reads.

  17. Happy Birthday!!! I am so excited to see that movie! I keep trying to pretend to my husband that it's not because of Robert Pattinson. ("It's suppose to be the movie of the year!") He's not buying it. Enjoy, and have a great day!

  21. Happy Birthday, Amanda! I hope you have a wonderful day! I always joke that April is my birthday month so I get to celebrate from April 1 on. ;) Ryan tries to remind me that I technically only get a day.

  22. Well, Happy, Happy, HAPPY Birthday!!!! I claim the entire month of March, so I get where you are coming from. I told Han Sole he had to wait until April to be born because I wasn't sharing my month!

  29. Happy (belated) Birthday, Amanda!

    Hope you enjoyed a treat that could equal your giant cookie. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! And no giant cookie!? Last time I checked ours was still open...makes me crave one right now...!!

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

  31. Amanda, I hope you had a WONDERFUL birthday! I tried to send you an online card on your birthday; I don't know if it made it to you. Then somehow I never made it back online to wish you a happy day here. I finally got an Easter post written earlier today, but then didn't have time to do any visiting. Oh, well--hopefully blogging will be something I can do a bit more of this coming week. But I do want you to know I was thinking about you on the 21st and that I hope you had a wonderful day! You deserve it, for sure!!

    Now I'm wondering. . . how did the cake situation turn out?!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
